PAINFUL PUMPING
It's going to get worse before it gets better, say experts.


The dollar may be shrinking, but the Energy Department expects gas
prices to keep climbing up to around $3.40 in the spring. Some ana-
lysts predict prices could hit $4.00 per gallon by the time summer
rolls around. In January. CIBC World Nlarkets were predicting that
due to the shortage of a key additive in summer-blend gas called
alkylate and the tightening of crude oil supply, that prices in the US
will hit $4.50 in four years.
Here in Dixie, gas prices average $3.29 for unleaded, slightly above
the state and national average. "My gas is going up faster than my
income." said mother of four. Linda Papale of Old Town.
Randy Bly, of AAA. when asked about Dixie County gas prices, stated
that "I find that gas in such areas tend to be higher than the metro
areas, primarily due to transportation costs and lack of a lot of local
competition." AAA provides daily updated fuel prices for Gainesville
and Tallahassee areas on the internet at fuelgaugereport.com
Budgets are being affected all over: everything from trucking compa-
nies to county ambulance service. Town of Cross City City Manager
Mike Cassidy stated that "We planned for gas prices to go up somewhat,
but there are some departments where it is affecting us in a limited way
now. We're not in a budget crunch because we planned."
He stated that next year's budget may change because of the impact
from soaring prices. "In the future, we don't know where we're going to
stand." and cited the additional fallout from the recently passed Amend-
ment 1, "Save our Homes" amendment, that could have adverse effects
on small local governments like Dixie County, while benefitting larger
metro areas.

A 32-mile segment of the Santa Fe River is
now an idle speed, no wake zone, according to
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) officials.


Zone 5, which runs from River Rise within
O'Leno State Park west to the confluence of
the Suwannee River, was activated as an idle
speed, no wake zone today because of rising
water levels.
This area of the river becomes an idle speed,
no wake zone when the Santa Fe River reach-
es 17 feet as indicated on the Three Rivers
gauge, where flood stage is 19 feet. "The San-
ta Fe reached that level today," said Capt. Roy sma wir pool ovy
Brown, area supervisor at the FWC's Lake culvert on Purvi
City office. "The Santa Fe is forecast to crest
this weekend at about 19 feet, if we get the rain that is expected."
An idle speed, no wake zone means a vessel must proceed at a speed
no greater than required to maintain steerageway and headway. At no
time is any vessel required to proceed so slowly the operator is un-
able to control it or anything it may be towing. FWC officers will be
patrolling this area of the river to ensure the idle speed, no wake
zone is enforced, Brown said.
"Water levels on the Suwannee River can fluctuate rapidly, creating
navigational hazards, such as floating debris, rocks, stumps and
shoaling conditions for unsuspecting boaters. We want everyone to be
safe," Brown stated.
The idle speed, no wake zone will stay in effect until the water level
recedes below 17 feet.
"This is also the first time we have used the new flood zones," says
Brown.
Previously, when the Suwannee River reached 26 feet above sea level
(3 feet below flood stage), one gauge in Branford placed the entire 160-


mile system under an idle speed, no wake re-
striction, hindering all boaters along both the
Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers, even though
some areas of the rivers were well below flood
stage. In 2006, FWC unanimously approved di-
viding the restricted areas on the Suwannee
and Santa Fe rivers into five zones with a wa-
ter-level gauge in each section. When the water
level rises -- ranging from 9 to 47 feet -- idle
speed, no wake zones will be enforced for that
zone.
"In the five new zones, idle speed, no wake re-
strictions are driven by Suwannee River Water
Management District gauges already situated
rs over a su merge within these segments," Brown said. "When
Landing Road. the specific gauge reaches the identified water
level, idle speed, no wake restrictions will be
imposed. When water recedes below the specified level within a spe-
cific segment, the restrictions will be lifted."
Zone 1 is from U.S. 90 Bridge at Ellaville south to State Road (SR) 51
Bridge at Luraville. This 39-mile segment will be an idle speed, no
wake zone when the Suwannee River is at 47 feet or more above mean
sea level, as indicated on the Ellaville gauge, where flood stage is 54
feet.
Zone 2 is from the SR 51 Bridge at Luraville to Little River Spring.
This 18-mile segment will be an idle speed, no wake zone when the
Suwannee River is at 26 feet or more above mean sea level as indicat-
ed on the Branford gauge, where flood stage is 29 feet.
Zone 3 covers Little River Spring to the County Road (CR) 340 Bridge
at Rock Bluff. This 23-mile segment will be an idle speed, no wake
zone when the Suwannee River is at 24 feet or more above mean sea
level as indicated on the Branford gauge... Continued on Page 6

Letter to the Editor:
Teaching the theory of evolution as a fact? A part of our heritage in Dixie County is the hunting of arrow-
heads, and one thing that even novice arrowhead hunters have in common is the recognition of intentional, in-
telligent design. No one would pick up an arrowhead and assume that the forces of nature shaped this rock into
its present state. It is obvious that an Indian ancestor intentionally shaped and formed the arrowhead for a spe-
cific purpose. We know that it was created, even though we were not present for it's creation. Yet, Darwin's theo-
ry of evolution expects us to do no less than to see all the evidence of intelligent design around us and conclude
that it just "evolved" from nothing.
In his book "The Origin of Species" written in 1859 Darwin himself admitted that the fossil record of his time
gave insignificant proof to support his theory, and hoped that future findings would increase the evidence. Near-
ly 150 years later, the fossil record has overwhelmingly increased and yet there is still no evidence of evolution
from species to species. If Darwin's theory were true, where is this vast body of evidence that should exist? Dar-
win also stated, "If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ exists which could not have been formed by
numerous, successive, slight modifications, then my theory would absolutely break down." In the past 50 years
the field of molecular biology has exploded with information about the complexity of DNA and living cells...in-
formation that Darwin did not have. It has been proven that a cell is irreduciblyy complex". In other words, .
every component is necessary for the cell to function normally, and that it could not possibly be the result of a se-
ries of successive, slight modifications. Any modification would render the cell insufficient...absolutely break-
ing down Darwin's theory, by his own criteria.


-.1.~~. --.L


To say that the account of creation in Genesis is not supported by fact is not true. The evidence of intelligent
design is all around us: the rising and setting of the sun, the phases of the moon and the seasons of the year.
How indeed did these precisely organized rotations just happen? According to Psalm 19:1 "The heavens declare
the glory of God, the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after
h a t s night they display knowledge." It is obvious that a Creator placed the stars in the sky and designed the human
W h a t' s a body, all with a specific purpose in mind. It takes much more faith to believe that this is all the result of a big ex-
plosion and years of random modifications than the intelligent design of a Creator.

SEMINOLE

COUNTY MAN

RE-ARRESTED,

CHARGED WITH

POSSESSION

OF CHILD

PORNOGRAPHY

~ Man was first arrested in November
after traveling to meet a "child"for sex ~
TALLAHASSEE, FL Attorney General Bill McCol-
lum today announced that a Seminole County man has
been taken into custody for the second time in less
than four months after investigators discovered his col-
lection of child pornography. Fredrick Daniel Cwik, Jr.
was first arrested in November after he traveled to
meet who he thought was a 14-year old girl, intending
to have sex with her. Prior to the traveling, he had en-
gaged in sexually explicit conversations with an un-
dercover CyberCrime investigator, believing he was
talking to an Orlando-area teen. Cwik, 40, was re-ar-
rested today after investigators determined that Cwik
was in possession of numerous images of child
pornography, including several movies.

"This case exemplifies how deep the problem can be
for a single individual and the length to which he will
go with these dark and destructive actions," said At-
torney General Bill McCollum.

Investigators determined Cwik, of Lake Mary, was
in possession of at least 20 images and of those im-
ages, 10 depicted sexual battery of a child and four are
movie files. Therefore, under the CyberCrimes Against
Children Act of 2007, 14 of the 20 counts against Cwik
are elevated from a third-degree felony to a second-de-
gree felony. Continued investigation by the CyberCrime
Unit and the Seminole County Sheriff's Office of the
computers seized after Cwik's first arrest also con.
firmed that Cwik had engaged in sexually explicit con-
versations over the internet with underage girls multi-
ple times and, prior to his first arrest, had potentially
victimized at least one young girl. Additional charges
may yet be filed. Cwik was arrested by the Seminole
County Sheriff's Office.

Cwik's November arrest occurred after he ap-
proached an undercover CyberCrime investigator in
an internet chatroom and sexually solicited someone
he believed to be a 14-year old girl. He also sent multi-
ple pornographic images to the investigator, including
three pornographic videos. Eventually, Cwik told the
"girl" he wanted to continue their sexual relationship
in person and attempted to meet her, but was instead
arrested by law enforcement officers with the Cyber-
Crimes Unit and the Seminole County Sheriffs Office.
He had bonded out of jail but still faces charges of-
traveling to meet a minor for unlawful sex act,
solicitation of a minor via computer, and multiple
counts of transmitting material harmful to minors, in
addition to the 20 charges of possession of child
pornography filed today. Cwik could face nearly 200
years in prison if convicted of all the charges.

The November arrest was the second made by the
Orlando CyberCrime Office, which hosted its grand
opening in early October. The new location is the first
additional office to open as part of Attorney General
McCollum's statewide expansion of the unit, which
has been operating out of Jacksonville since its incep-
tion in October 2005. Additional offices will open
throughout the state over the next several months, in-
cluding a Ft. Lauderdale location within the next 10
days.
The Child Predator CyberCrime Unit's mission is to
protect children from computer-facilitated sexual ex-
ploitation. The unit does this by working cooperatively
on a statewide basis with law enforcement agencies
and prosecutors to provide resources and expertise,
while preventing the spread of these crimes through
education and community awareness. The unit is a
member of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task
Force (ICAC) of Central Florida, as is the Seminole
County Sheriffs Office.

Spotlight On Dixie


HOSAS GOING TO STATE


By David Ryman & Cristy Brannin
HOSA members from Dixie County High School are having a yard sale at Charlotte
and Herman Herring's house in Cross City on Hwy 19 on Saturday March 8th. They
are trying to raise money to go to the State Competition in Orlando, having won the
Region II competition. For more information call Shelby on 352-578-4760.

HOSA is a national student organization endorsed by the U.S. Department of Educa-
tion and the Health Science Technology Education Division of ACTE. HOSA's two-
fold mission is to promote career opportunities in the health care industry and to
enhance the delivery of quality health care to all people. HOSA's goal is to encour-
age all health occupations instructors and students to join and be actively involved
in the HSTE-HOSA Partnership.

HOSA provides a unique program of leadership development, motivation, and
recognition exclusively for secondary, post secondary, adult, and collegiate students
enrolled in HSTE programs. HOSA is 100% health care!


Since its inception in 1976, HOSA has grown steadily
reaching nearly 90,000 members through 44 chartered
HOSA State Associations and approximately 2,600 sec-
ondary, and post-secondary/collegiate chapters in 2007-
2008.


HOSA is not a club to which a few students in school 3 y .-. y p
join. Rather, HOSA is a powerful instructional tool that
works best when it is integrated into the HSTE curricu- k
lum and classroom. HSTE instructors are committed to
the development of the total person. Those who join
the HSTE-HOSA Partnership recognize the importance
of providing students with training far beyond the basic technical skills needed for
entry into the health care field. The rapidly changing health care system needs dedi-
cated workers who, in addition to their technical skills, are people-oriented and ca-
pable of playing a leadership or followership role as a member of a health care
team.

HOSA's mission is especially critical when considering the acute shortage of quali-
fied workers for the health care industry. It is essential that the HSTE-HOSA Part-
nership maintain its momentum and encourage all HSTE instructors to integrate
HOSA into their curriculum and classrooms.





From a story by Robyn Blumner of Tribune Media Services dated 3/3/08:

" It doesn't take long, traveling south along State Road 19, to see the inexorable
march of the invading population. The highway goes from tree-lined and lightly
traveled to strip-mall-lined and clogged in shockingly short order. A place as
seemingly remote as tiny Steinhatchee offers newly built riverfront condos for
half a million dollars just down the road from the smoked mullet stand. They're
for the bourgeoisie who enjoy scalloping. Work for a local wage and you can't
tquch one"., 1; ,

SPRINGHOUSE NEWS

Last Tuesday, 15 Springhouse ladies joined with Levy
County instructor, Gail Bice, to learn how to make a
Garden Trellis Quilt. All fabric for the quilt was cut
into strips and small pieces before the workshop so
sewing the pieces of fabric together to make the trellis
was the order for the day. Gail is a very busy ranch
wife, since she and her husband have a large cattle op-
eration in Levy County Even though her schedule is
very full, Gail finds time to quilt and is a very accom-
plished quilter and a great instructor. Many of Gail's
pieced quilts have been displayed at the Suwannee Val-
ley Quilt Shop in Trenton. Some of her quilts are
replicas of Civil War and Seminole piecing.

The quilters were able to get many of the cut fabric
pieces together before time to close shop for the day.
These quilts will soon be appearing at the monthly
Springhouse show and tell. A covered dish lunch fol-
lowed the quilting party

Since Springhouse is participating in the March 15,
Antique and Vintage Quilt Festival to be held in Tren-
ton, they will be having sewing-quilted related items in
a small gift shop that will be next door to the Gilchrist
Journal. There also will be at least 2 raffle quilts on
display during the festival and tickets will be available.

Both the day and night beginner classes for Spring-
house have been full this session. There are 25 ladies
learning to quilt; some for the very fist time. This is a
great challenge for new quilters and gives them hands-
on experience in piecing and finishing a quilt.

For information about Springhouse Quilters, call or
contact Lois Scott, 463-2207, or any member of Spring-
house.


WILD GAME THE FEATURED FLAVOR
AT EDUCATION FOUNDATION'S
BEAST FEAST

Foundation's 15th annual Wild Beast Feast on Friday,

game and fowl including: gator tail, frog legs, quail,
mountain goat, water buffalo, mountain oysters, pork,
corn on the cob, swamp cabbage, authentic gumbo,
beef, barbecue goat and homemade desserts.
In 2007, nearly 1500 people from throughout
north Florida attended the Wild Beast Feast, which is
held each year to raise money for scholarships for
graduating seniors at Bell High School and Trenton
Middle High School.
According to Julie Thomas, president of the Ed-
ucation Foundation of Gilchrist County, $92,000 in
scholarship funds was given out in 2007 to area high
school seniors.
This year the number of students applying for Educa-
tion Foundation scholarships has risen to 122 appli-
cants, therefore nearly $100,000 will need to be raised.
Tickets for the Wild Beast Feast may be pur-
chased at Capital City Bank in Trenton and Bell, Drum-
mond Community Bank, Ameris Bank, Gilchrist Coun-
ty Supervisor of Elections Office, Gilchrist County
School Board Office, Gilchrist County Property Ap-

FLORIDA PUBLIC SERVICE COMMIS-
SION APPROVES NET METERING AND
INTERCONNECTION RULE

TALLAHASSEE Florida's Public Service Commis-
sion (PSC) today ratified its December 18, 2007 decision
on a rule addressing net metering and expedited inter-
connection standards. The Commission considered
comments received from participants in the rulemak-
ing proceeding but made no changes to the rule.

The net metering rule is intended to promote the de-
velopment and interconnection of customer-owned re-
newable generation, and minimize costs for customers
attempting to interconnect to their utility It encour-
ages the development of renewable generation by: (1)
expanding the size of eligible systems from 10 kW to 2
MW; (2) expanding the type of eligible systems from
solely photovoltaic to all renewable technologies; (3) ex-
pediting the interconnection of customer-owned renew-
able generation; and (4) allowing customers to offset
consumption through net metering.
generation also effectively acts as a conservation mea-
sure by reducing the amount of electricity purchased
from utilities.

CAROL S. RICHARDSON, 67, passed away Friday
morning, February 1, 2008 after a battle with cancer.

She was born March 26, 1940 in North Bloomfeld,
the daughter of Chester and Beulah Simons Smith.

Mrs. Richardson was a 1958 graduate of Bloomfield
High School and worked at Johnson Rubber Co. for
more than 30 years.

Carol was always an active member of the commu-
nity and church. Six months out of the year, Carol
and her husband, Bobby, were seasonal residents of
Old Town. She was a devoted and active member of
the Old Town United Methodist Church, where she
sang in the church choir. In her spare time she
loved to be surrounded by friends and family, to at-
tend gospel concerts and travel.

Cherished memories of Carol will be carried on by
her beloved and devoted husband, Bobby Richard-
son, with whom she was united in marriage Feb. 6,
1976; a son, Harry W Richardson of Niles; four
brothers, Chet Smith of Leavittsburg, Harvey
(Doretha) Smith of Old Town, Merle Smith of Bris-
tolville, and Ray Lee Smith of Beverly Hills, FL; and
a sister, Bonnie Parke of Champion.

Her parents; a brother, E. Lewellyn Smith; and sis-
ters, Margaret Roberts, Marie Smith, Carlotte
Weigand and Harriet Stewart, preceded her in
death.

Memorial contributions may be made to North
Bloomfield United Methodist Church or Old Town
United Methodist Church in Old Town, Florida.


FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF
STEINHATCHEE NEWS

We are beginning our new basketball team for First
Baptist. Practice will be every Monday at 5:30 P.M. The
team members are from 10- 18 years old. Our team
must be faithful in church attendance. If you are inter-
ested come on down and join us on Mondays at the
gym.

We were blessed to hear some of our youth singing, "I
Never Shall Forget the Day". They were Britttany
Holden, Brent Hoffman, Libby Gray, Chris Holden, Jes-
siba Downey, Emily Ellison, Donnie Morrow and Timo-
thy Holden. In the evening service We heard little Kait-
lyn Mitchell singing her first solo, "JESUS Loves Me".
She is the daughter of Todd and Nicey Mitchell! Also
Karen Callahan blessed us with "People Need the
LORD".

John and Karen are missionaries, home for a while and
then returning to Indonesia later this year.! We have so
much to be thankful for! And many of our prayers have
been answered. Gradie Morrow came home recently.

Sunday night Timothy Holden now eighteen years old
preached a soul searching sermon! GOD has reached
down and instilled a humble and loving heart in Timo-
thy for lost souls. Timothy was called to preach some
years ago. Even at this young age a couple of churches
has asked him to come serve the LORD with them. But
Timothy is waiting for GOD to make the decision as to
what HE has planned for his life. Let's pray for GOD'S
perfect will to be done. As his brothers and sisters... a
little spark of encouragement can ignite great endeav-
ors! It is like seeing mothers and fathers sitting on a
park bench, seeing their toddler as he sat on the swing,
wanting some one to push them. Well do ya know what
happens when you push a kid on a swing? Pretty soon
he is pumping, doing it himself! Let' encourage and
give a loving push to our young people toward GOD's
service! Note: a parent's life is a child's guidebook!

We invite each of you to come on down to First Baptist,
worship with us...perfect people need not apply! Just
come as you are, there is no test: GOD will do the rest!
Friendship can help turn loneliness into joy, hope and
love. We need you as a new friend, yes, GOD is here
waiting for you... HE is already your friend.
Lots of love, joy and happiness. Sandy Coleman

Sunday was a beautiful day...another beautiful day to
be serving the Lord! Our choir was in rare form, and
so was Bro. Billy, who delivered God's heart-probing
message to us from Luke 18:9-14. Sunday evening, with
Bro. Billy and Sis. Penny on their way to attend the
Florida State Evangelism Conference being held March
2nd-4th, Bro. Frankie VanAernam stepped in and did a
fine job delivering one of God's timely messages of
faith, choosing his-text from Acts 6:8-15. Thank you,
Bro. Frankie!

Our Pastor/Deacons monthly meeting is scheduled for
Monday evening, March 10th, and will be followed by
our monthly church business meeting on Wednesday
evening, March 12th. In other church news, we would
like to. congratulate two of our beautiful young ladies,
Morgan Philmon and Kyndal VanAernam, who won
FFA Princess and 2nd Runnerup, respectively We are
proud of our young people who participate and excel in
school activities.

We were blessed with visitors again Sunday, and are al-
ways looking forward to more, as we love sharing God's
wonderful message with others. Please be in prayer for
those on the church prayer lists, our military person-
nel, our President and other leaders, and any others of
whom you might know to be in need of prayer. Have a
good week, and may God bless you.

Some courtships last and become
marriages. Others fail and end
quickly. The reasons for failure
vary, but in most instances, the
couple never really loved each
other in the way that the Bible
says a husband and wife should.
Ask any couple who has been
married for a long time how they
have managed to stay together
and they will probably cite their
sacrificial love for each other as a
major factor. Love really does
conquer all, even death, as God's
love for us led to the ultimate
sacrifice and gave us eternal life.

FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH NEWS

God gave us such beautiful weather for worship today
at Faith. So very many of our folks are out sick with
this flu that's going around. Bro. Jackie was sick, so
Bro. Bobby Bryan filled in for him in the morning ser-
vice and Bro. Don Winstead in the evening service.
Bro. Jim Fisher was sick also, and Kacie led the music
at Bro. Jim's request. The choir did the special music
in the morning service and Bro. Kacie did a solo in the
evening service. The Spirit was strong in our midst.
Remember next Sunday morning, March 9th, at 2:00
AM our time will change one hour ahead. When you
go to bed Saturday night remember to set your clocks
ahead so you're sure to be there on time. The following
Sunday will be Easter with a covered dish luncheon fol-
lowing the morning service, then an Easter Egg Hunt
in the afternoon immediately after lunch for the chil-
dren.
Remember this week to pray for the sick among us,
the bereaved, and especially the sin-sick. Invite some-
one to Sunday School and Church with you. You may
be the only person who can touch that one special per-
son. God will so richly bless you for it.
Remember also to come out Wednesday night and get
your mid-week fillup. Prayer meeting starts at 7:00 PM
every Wednesday night. The Awanas start at 6:00 PM,
so bring your little ones and any that live around you.
The children love it and parents are being saved due to
the enthusiasm of the, little ones. We'll be looking for
you next week.

MAKING MONEY
INABAP
ECONOMY

How can a small business
stay afloat in the current
economic climate? How
can a small business justi-
fy investing in advertising
when money is tigit?

According to Beth Gold-
stein small business mar-
keting expert who was in-


terviewed on the Man-
izesto blog, the most im-
portant thing to do is to
rethink the difference be-
tween investment and ex-
pense. Goldstein says that
"Marketing and sales are
definitely not expenses
and should not be put in
this category They are
investments toward
growth and shouldn't
have to be justified any
more than paying your
employees or serving your

customers should be."

It is important to take ad-
vantage of opportunities
provided by your cus-
tomer needs, and that can
bring in new customers
without risking your cur-
rent customer base. For
instance, a small medical
office that also does cos-
metic skin treatments.

Goldstein continues,


There is an inverse
relationship between
reliance on the state
and self-reliance."

--William F. Buckley,
Jr.--

"Marketing is not about
having expensive
brochures or ads during
the Super Bowl...you don't
need to have a multimil-
lion dollar budget to
achieve that goal."

When asked if it is smart
to incur extra costs for
new advertising cam-
paigns when money is al-
ready tight, Goldstein
states that business own-
ers can take advantage of
the bad economic times to
change the products they
offer; for instance, offer-
ing a lower-quality prod-
uct with cheaper pricing
that might work in the
company's favor in the
long haul and that appeals
to customers on a tight
budget.

Golstein says that "all en-
trepreneurs should have a
plan in place for when
things go wrong and are
slow. Closing shop (sea-
sonally) makes it really
hard to pay the bills and
to keep loyal customers so
I don't advocate this as a
strategy" The best busi-
nesses struggle through
hard times by thinking
"outside the box" with
unique marketing cam-
paigns.


IMPORTANT INFORMATION
ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Suwannee Water & Sewer District Has Levels of Disinfection
Byproducts Above Drinking Water Standards
Dur water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Al-
though this is not an emergency, as our Customers, you have a
right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we
are doing to correct this situation.
We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contami-
nants. Testing results we received from samples taken November
29, 2007 show that our system exceeds the standards, or maximum
Contaminant levels (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs),
which includes Total Trihalomethanes (TT'HMs) and Total Halo
Acetic Acids (HAA5s). The standard for TTHM is 80 micrograms
per liter and the average level of TTHMs over the last year was
335.0 micrograms per liter. The standard for HAA5s is 60 micro-
grams per liter and the average level over the last year was 190.4
micrograms per liter.
What should I do?
Recent research results suggest a possible connection between
tigh levels of DBPs and pregnancy problems. Therefore, women
f childbearing age may wish to seek alternative water sources.
Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs
:an choose alternative sources of water for ingestion, such as
commerciall bottled water or treated water by an appropriate
aome water treatment device, until we correct the problem. Ap-
propriate home water treatment devices are those certified by
NSF for reducing DBPs in drinking water.
Some people who drink water-containing trihalomethanes in ex-
:ess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with
their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an
Increased risk of getting cancer.
some people who drink water containing halo acetic acids in ex-
:ess of the MCL over many years may have an increased risk of
getting cancer.
Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs
may choose alternative sources of water for ingestion
What does this mean?
Phis is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been
notified immediately. What is being done?
this is what we are doing to lower our DBP levels: On February 6,
2007 the District broke ground on the new Water Treatment Plant
WTP). The plant is scheduled for completion in March 2008. The
treatment process at the new WTP will be different than the cur-
-ent WTP and will dramatically reduce the level of DBP in our
drinking water. With the new WTP our water will be within the
acceptable limits specified for DBP. At this time we are using as
Mall a concentration of treatment products as possible and flush-
ing the lines bimonthly to help reduce the level of DBP.
We anticipate resolving the problem within this time frame: 1st

I DON'T THINK SO!

The divorce of Anton Popazov
and his wife, Nataliya, is about
to go through, but the couple
are still contractually commit-
ted to the Moscow State Circus,
where their act includes Na-
taliya's shooting an apple off of
Anton's head with a crossbow.
The Times of London asked
Anton during a show in
Sheffield, England, in Febru-
ary whether he was afraid. "I
still trust her because Nataliya
is very professional," he said.
"(T)he show must go on." [The
Times (London), 2-12-08]


JUST A LITTLE WEED'LL
DO YA (PERMANENTLY)

In February, a court in Dubai,
United Arab Emirates, sen-
tenced Briton Keith Brown, 43,
to the standard four-year mini-
mum term in prison for violat-
ing the country's extreme "zero
tolerance" drug laws, even
,though the only drug found
was a "speck" (0.003 grams) of
cannabis caught in the tread of
his shoe and discovered only
because the Dubai airport uses
sophisticated drug-detection
equipment. Previously, a Cana-
dian man was imprisoned for
"possession" of three poppy
seeds (from a bread roll he had
eaten at Heathrow Airport in
London) that had fallen into
his clothing as he prepared for
a flight to Dubai. [The Indepen-
dent (London), 2-20-08]

CAN YOU GET RATS
WITH THAT?

In January, Derry, N.H., Town
Administrator Gary Stenhouse
told Thomas Souhlaris that
he'd have to move his sausage
stand because he was trespass-
ing on city property Souhlaris
had set up the stand at the
town's garbage transfer sta-
tion, and Stenhouse said there
might be municipal liability is-
sues. especially if other food.
vendors followed Souhlaris and
set up stands at the dump.

TIME TO FIND
ANOTHER JOB

PASCO, Wash. Sheriffs detec-
tives in Franklin County said a
man had his friend shoot him
in the shoulder so he wouldn't
have to go to work.

When he first spoke with
deputies, Daniel Kuch told
them he'd been the victim of a
drive-by shooting while he was
jogging Thursday. But detec-
tives said Kuch later acknowl-
edged that he asked a friend to
shoot him so he could get some
time off work and avoid a drug
test.

The friend had been arrested
for investigation of reckless
endangerment. Kuch was ex-
pected to be charged with false
reporting. (MSNBC)

BAD HAIR DAY

PARMA, Ohio A kindergarten
student with a freshly spiked
Mohawk has been suspended
from school.The school said
the hair was a distraction for
other students.
"I understand they have a dress
code. I understand he has a
uniform. But this is total dis-
crimination," she said. "They
can't tell me how I can cut his
hair." (MSNBC)

projects. He stated work will begin on
Monday, January 21st and the projects
will be worked on simultaneously. Mr.

Roads will be in a lime rock state for a
few days so minimal traffic from resi-
dents is asked.

occurred on the Veterans and Spillers
roads with two bids received on each.
Spillers Highway Low bid was Ander-
son Columbia with a bid of $746,971.31

mended to the Board awarding the Bid
to Anderson Columbia Inc. The motion
to award the bid to Anderson Columbia
for construction on Spillers Highway was
made by Commissioner Hunt and sec-
onded by Commissioner Hays. Board

located for this project. He stated re-
quest for additional funding had been

approval contingent upon funding gained
between bids and allotted funding. The
motion was made by Commissioner
Hays and seconded by Commissioner
Valentine. Board approved.

ing on a grant for a boat ramp at the end

ment deficiency on CR358 and he stated
the pavement will have to be milled to
correct this problem. Commissioner
Hays and Valentine stated they would
like the bridges on the Jena Road to be
marked clearer. The Board questioned
why the Veterans Road project bids
were over the allocated funding. Mr.
Bishop explained the size of the job and
the scope of work was problematic.
Manager Bellot stated he received a call
from HIPP Construction asking permis-
sion to fill their tanker up at the EMS sta-
tion on 351. Manager Bellot stated the
station could sustain those fill ups so he
gave-them permission to fill up there

Tips For FCAT

1) Teach your child to take tests seriously, but not
to get overly anxious. Too much stress can cause mis-
takes.
2) Promote positive self-talk, such as "I know I can
do this." Keep your child feeling upbeat about doing
his/her best.
3) Remind your child to listen to or read test direc-
tions carefully.
4) Remind your child about test taking skills their
teachers have taught them.
5) The test must be completed and all questions
answered.
6) Ensure your child gets proper sleep the night
before and has breakfast on test days. Being well rest-
ed and eating right will keep your child's energy level
up.
7) Please make sure your child is on time for tests!

OVERFERTILIZING ST. AUGUSTINE-
GRASS COULD ENCOURAGE CHINCH
BUGS, UF RESEARCHER WARNS
By Tom Nordlie
GAINESVILLE, Fla. --- A little fertilizer can perk up a
St. Augustinegrass lawn as spring arrives, but home-
owners who overdo it may find they're growing more
than grass.

A University of Florida study suggests that repeatedly
using large amounts of nitrogen fertilizer can ignite a
population explosion of Southern chinch bugs-the No.
1 insect pest of St. Augustinegrass, the state's most
popular turfgrass.

"Everything in moderation," said Eileen Buss, an asso-
ciate professor of entomology with UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences. "When we try to over-
ly manage a natural system we get the balance out of
whack."

UF turfgrass experts advise homeowners to use no
more than 1 pound of slow-release nitrogen fertilizer
per 1,000 square feet of lawn, a recommendation found
in the document "St. Augustinegrass for Florida
Lawns," available at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/LH010l
In the study, Southern chinch bugs produced the most:
eggs on St. Augustinegrass fed the equivalent of 2
pounds nitrogen per 1,000 square feet per month.

Resistant chinch bugs may be able to survive exposure
to bifenthrin, a pyrethroid that is the top choice for
Southern chinch bug control in Florida. However,
pyrethroids should still perform well against nonresis-
tant populations of Southern chinch bugs.

The chinch bugs were paired up to reproduce, each
pair placed in a cage containing St. Augustinegrass fer-
tilized at the same rate the insects previously experi-
enced. The results showed females raised on grass giv-
en 0 or 0.5 pounds nitrogen produced 15 to 20 eggs per
week; those on grass given 1 or 2 pounds produced 25 to
35. Females on grass given 4 pounds briefly produced 45
eggs per week, then declined to 20. Adult female South-
ern chinch bugs live about two months, and produce
eggs the entire time.

Buss said female chinch bugs produce more eggs on
healthy St. Augustine grass, which accounts for the dif-
ferences in egg production. Future research may exam-
ine the role of the nutrients phosphorus and potassium
in chinch bug population growth, and the possibility
that overfertilization may reduce turfgrass resistance
.,.-,pch bugs.
i -.e1-f ^ I
Though this study was conducted in a laboratory
rather than a yard, Buss says the results are relevant to
homeowners. Southern chinch bugs don't move around
much, staying in the same area unless they can't find
food.

And with the insects producing a new generation every
four to six weeks during Florida summers, increased
egg-laying could lead to rapid population growth in
overfed lawns.

Buss said she's not sure how applicable the results are
in other Gulf Coast states where St. Augustinegrass is
commonly grown, due to environmental differences.

Studies on other species of chinch bugs elsewhere in
the United States show that it's common for-nitrogen
fertilizer to boost egg production, said chinch bug ex-
pert Fred Baxendale, an entomology professor with the
University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

"A WALK IN THE GARDEN" -
SMARCH 2008


The month of February lived up to its infamous repu-
station of sending us some real hard freezing nights.
This year we had the added pleasure of having excep-
tionally strong gusting winds to go with the 17-18 de-
- gree nights which resulted in lots of plant and tree
losses. O.K.- so now what


can you do about it? Put on
your CSI hat and go out
and check the trees by clip-
ping a few affected branch-
es to see exactly how much
internal damage was done.
Look for any signs of life:
liquid at the place you cut;
tints of green under the
exposed bark; or a flexible.
branch rather than a dry
twig as you cut it. Trim off
the actual dead branches
and burnt leaves. Give the
* plant some food to eat and
finally a nice drink of wa-
ter.


There are 2 major groups of plants that would be good
for you to know for the clean up process: ANNUALS
:eg. marigolds,petunias,& salvia. (plants which bloom
Sand last only one season and then die off).PERENNI-
ALS:(plants that bloom and rebloom year after year
naturally without having to be reseeded). Popular
perennials in our area include: heather, lantana, blue
daze, and plumbego. These favorites may have turned
into brown sticks due to the frost, but just trim their
ears back, clean up the sticks and wait for them to
SPRING back into action!

Last month I promised to answer questions about
fertilizers (plant food).
- #1. Decide whether you want to "GO GREEN" by using
only organic foods like manures and composts of once
: living organisms; eg. table scraps and fish parts.- Nurs-
ery and garden centers usually carry both organic fer-
tilizers and chemical or artificial types to enhance
your soil.

#2. If you choose manures, avoid placing fresh manure
on new plants and seedlings as it will burn the tender
root hairs causing damage or loss. One exception to the
rule is rabbit droppings which does not cause harm to
even the newest of seedlings! Go rabbits!

. #3. Commercial fertilizers: They are identified by a
;:three digit code : eg. 8-8-8; or 10-10-10 or 19 -5-10
ect..These numbers refer to the amount of nutrients in
this formula. The first number is for N (nitrogen)
which influences the leaf and branch growth of the
plant. The second is P (phosphorous) which helps pro-
mote fruit and bloom production. The third is K (potas-
'sium) that develops stronger roots and makes the plant
,'more disease resistant. *One word of caution : the
higher the number the more powerful the fertilizer is
snot always the best as over fertilizing can kill a young
- plant or tree quickly The rule is to feed young or ten-
' der species with a lower number, but feed more often
for best results.

#4. Read the labels or ask your local nurseryman to ad-
vise as to the dose required for your specific plants. A
few questions could save you lots of tears, time and
money

Questions from our readers:
Q.I bought some time release fertilizer. "How long will
it last in my garden?"

The answer will vary from one type to the other de-
pending upon the kind of capsule the fertilizer is
placed in. The capsules are designed to release the fer-
tilizer after being broken down by either the heat, sun-
: light, or water or a combination of all three. That
means that the exposure to these elements will deter-
mine how long the fertilizer will last. That being said,
the most expensive type claims to be good for up to 6-9
Monthss, but only under ideal conditions of limited
sunlight, cool temperatures and damp but not wet ,wa-
ter conditions.

'This means that getting 3 months of feeding here in
our area would be about the maximum time of effec-
tiveness. You can help extend the life by putting the
time release pellets below the surface or covering them
'up with a sprinkle of top soil or mulch to keep the sun
From breaking them down quite as quickly
Keep your chin up! Those sunny days are just around
the corner! Spring colors of the azaleas, red buds,
bridal wreaths and fruit blossoms are showing off
more and more each passing day So, git on up, take a
walk in your garden and ENJOY the smell and sights of
.springtime!

WHAT A


SURPRISE

_4 ',-!, : .


... .




For Shawn Spurlin's 14th birthday his parents, Jodi
and Ferrell, surprised him. A Monster Truck Limou-
sine, from Absolute Perfection Limousine Service of
Gainesville, picked him up and 10 of his friends from
Ruth Raines Middle School and drove them to Smokeys
BarB'Que and Steakhouse in Cross City for chicken fin-
gers, french fries and cinnamon apples. The limo then
took them to the baseball game. Happy birthday
Shawn.

ANTIQUE FESTIVAL
WILL FEATURE
CIVIL WAR
REPRODUCTION
QUILTS MADE BY
CHIEFLAND
QUILTER

Turning back the
pages of time by using
reproduction fabrics is
a specialty of Chiefland
Quilter Dr. Gail Bice.
Many of her Civil War
era reproduction quilts
will be featured in a
special exhibit at The
Suwannee Valley An-
tique Quilt Festival,
which will be held in
Trenton on March 15.
Dr. Bice has been quilt-
ing since the 1980s and
has made many beauti-
ful quilts. Several quilts
feature fabric that was copied from the Smithsonian.
She said that the geometric patterns such as goose
chase and stars of the 1840s to the 1860s have always in-
terested her. A one-hundred-year-old home in down-
town Trenton will be the location of Dr. Bice's quilts as
well as any other quilts made in the mid 1800s.
For those attending the festival who like vintage and
antique items there will.be ten or more antique
venders set up near the old Trenton Train Depot also
an area antique car club will have their cars on dis-
play. As those attending the festival stroll down Main
Street to view the many beautiful antique quilts dis-
played along the street, they can visit with several tal-
ented crafts people who will be demonstrating sewing-
related crafts from yesteryear such as spinning, braid-
ed rug making, lace making and more.
So come enjoy the celebration of quilting in America
as our ancestors knew it, when the main street of
Trenton becomes the backdrop for many wonderful
vintage and antique quilts. There is no charge for this
festival which is held to celebrate National Quilt Day
on Saturday, March 15 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The City of Trenton, the Gilchrist County Chamber of
Commerce, the Springhouse Quilt Guild as well as sev-
eral local businesses sponsor this event.

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.

AS IF IT WERE AN ADDITION TO
OUR OWN HOME
