Paddling Florida's
Suwannee river


By David Ryman
Dixie County now has the facili-
ties to recycle newspaper, busi-
ness paper, magazines and card-
board. There are two recycle
dumpster locations, one behind
the Texaco gas station opposite
the high school in Cross City and
the other behind Double D Auto
Sales in Old Town. Use of these
facilities, by residents of Dixie
County, is encouraged, aside from
the 'usual' reasons for recycling,
it will also save the County the
expense of moving the waste to a
landfill. ,

County workers are turning away
residents from over the river who
are attempting to drop solid
waste items at dump sites operat-
ed by the County for the use of,
and paid for by, residents of Dix-
ie. More effort needs to be done if
the expense involved is to be cov-
ered by the tax revenues received
for that purpose.

The County is officially instigat-
ing a 4-day work week commenc-
ing on the 7th April 2008 and con-

otherwise. The intention is to

ber of days diesel trucks are in

Jerry Prater, Veterans Service Of-
ficer, reported that there is a cen-
tre is Gainesville for the long
term treatment for veterans suf-
fering from Post Traumatic
Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Local residents voiced concern
over motorists speeding along
162nd Street. Speed bumps were
installed on the road some years
ago, but have since disappeared
co presumably during resurfacing.
The County's policy is to not use
. -. speed bumps as traffic calming
measures as they interfere with
the timely operation of emer-
gency services. It was also point-
ed out the bumps were used as a
start point, by persons unknown,
to speed up to 60 mph before
reaching 351. Another issue is
that of jurisdiction, one end is
within city limits and the other
S is under the County's portfolio.
The Sheriff and City Police will
es be made aware of the problem.

More than 150 canoe
paddling enthusiasts left
the Spirit of the Suwan-
nee Music Park north of
Live Oak March 21 on a
123-mile adventure that
will last seven days on
the famous Suwannee
River. These happy pad-
dlers grin as they finish
the first day of the event
along the Suwannee Riv-
er Wilderness Trail that
ended at the Suwannee
River State Park at Ellav-
ille in Suwannee County
The group spent the
night there and then
continued on its trek
down the tea-colored riv-
er, stopping at the Ad-
vent Christian Village
enroute to Manatee
Springs State Park
where the inaugural
event will end. The event
is in cooperation with
the Florida Park Service

The first annual Old Town Easter Egg Hunt was an amazing success. Huge crowds of excited kids were waiting anxiously to get a chance to
race for the hidden Easter booty. Each child received a free basket with gifts courtesy of the generous sponsors.. Free food and music were
enjoyed, and the playground encouraged lots of happy smiles.

e were Mayor Lee, Atty Beauchamp, City Clerk,
Manager, City Superintendent and Police Chief

Cross City water plant is now classified as a

action have performed inspections andthe end of

april with the facility being opened for limited
Phase II will be complete in June when residents
have full access. Local volunteers have offered to
itor activities in the park to help ensure its safe
nation. Mrs. Harden voiced concern about mobile
es being relocated in Cross City Improved con-
;tion standards introduced in 1994 led to an in-
se in survivability of these over some site built
es. Rick Gooding suggested a more dynamic ap-
ch than that adopted by the County Instead of
iing "to be sited" mobile homes having to be
ufactured after a specific year, the option to set a
ific age would require less action by the Council
after year.

The fallacy factory
Julius Caesar was warned to beware the Ides
of March. He ignored this advice and was done in by
someone he considered a friend on the 15th of March,
his final words being, "Et tu, Brute."
I'll-bet you didn't know I could speak Latin,
huh? Actually, I can't, but that is neither here nor
somewhere else except for the fact that firearms own-
ers and Second Amendment supporters in general
need to beware the opinion expressed in the
,G.ainesville Sun's lead editorial on Saturday, March
15; this year's Ides of March.
'" The area New York Times surrogate used the
headline "Spines of jelly" to describe our state legis-
lature for passing a very sensible measure in support
of the constitutional right of the people to keep and
bear arms.
Here's the problem: A few big city employers
(and, I presume, advertisers) won't allow employees
to have firearms in vehicles left in the company park-
ing lot. Not even employees with concealed carry per-
mits who keep their weapons locked in the trunks of
their vehicles.
So, why would an employee with a concealed
carry permit want to have a gun in his vehicle? For
one thing, he's confirmed that constitutional right by
obtaining his permit. Also, he might be a hunter
wanting to stop off and try to bag a buck or a turkey
on his way home.
More likely, he'd like to have it in case he ar-
rived at his driveway to see some bozo walking out of
his house with his TV set. Having a gun, he would not
necessarily shoot to kill, but he could certainly dis-
cuss the situation from an advantageous perspective
and perhaps even persuade the thief to repent of his
wicked ways.
The Sun editorial turns logic on its head by
pointing out that, in the event some loser showed up
at the shop and started shooting at random, a creden-
tialed gun owner could not immediately return fire
with his gun locked in his trunk in the parking lot.
Never mind that the employee with a concealed carry
permit could have a weapon on him except for a com-
pany policy that prevents him from doing so, in
which case the very fact that he was armed would dis-
courage random gun violence, and in the event it hap-
pened, would stop the culprit in his tracks a lot quick-
er than calling 911. That's one reason these permits
are authorized in the first place.
As for the disgruntled employee who got fired
over a trivial matter like embezzling funds.from the
annuity set up for the boss' favorite charity, the odds
are overwhelming that he does not show up with a
loaded gun, a bad attitude and a concealed carry per-
mit, only the first two. After all, he wasn't playing by
the rules when he decided to make a statement by
killing a dozen or so former employees who had noth-
ing to do with his termination.
In other words, the roster of mentally-margin-
al gun-toting intruders in the workplace are about as
likely to have qualified for concealed carry permits as
Ralph Nader is to be our next president.
(But I still want him on the ballot.) There have always
been enough guns that getting them out of circula-
tion would be impossible, so creating "gun-free"
zones is essentially a fantasy Washington, DC, is a
perfect example of how violent crime rates are high-
est where gun control laws are the strictest.
If liberals would just wise up to the fact that
criminals and others disposed toward irrational be-
havior don't buy concealed carry permits or respect
"gun-free" zones, they could leave the firearms issue
alone and devote their full attention to global warm-
ing and promoting the gay rights agenda. And the
same is true of businesses that want to tell their em-
ployees they can't exercise a constitutional right even
if they leaved it locked in their vehicles.
It shouldn't take a state law to accomplish
this, but since it does, the legislature needs to get it
on the books ASAP.


.nley submitted this photo to us and would like your h
ty of the couple.


Ms. Phronia Stanley sent us this picture with the request that we assist her to identify the persons in it. Accord-
ing to Ms. Stanley the photograph belonged to her uncle, Albert Langford. The picture wasn't marked so she
doesn't know who the couple is. She believes, because of the likeness to her uncle Albert and one of his sons,
that he may in fact be a langford.
Ms. Stanley thinks the photograph may be of her grandfather's half-brother Isaac Herring, but as she has been
unable to find anyone with a picture of him to compare it to she can't say for sure.
If anyone can identify the people in the picture above, please contact Phronia Stanley at ilidith59@aol.com, or

Jacksonville cocaine

trafficker sentenced to

8 years in prison
-Cocaine trafficking ring ran drugs
from Miami.to North Florida~-
TALLAHASSEE, FL Attorney General Bill McCol-
lum today announced that a Jacksonville man re-
ceived an eight-year prison sentence for conspiring to
traffic cocaine. Victor Smith was sentenced today for
his involvement in a cocaine trafficking ring which
supplied drugs from Miami to drug dealers in
Clay and Duval counties. Smith and several co-defen-
dants were prosecuted by the Attorney General's Of-
fice of Statewide Prosecution.
Smith, 48, was arrested after participating in an on-
going drug organization which transported about five
kilograms of cocaine per a week from Miami to Clay
and Duval counties. The investigation used wire taps,
surveillance and multiple search warrants to bring
about the arrests of Smith and 16 of his co-conspira-
tors. The investigation was conducted by the
Office of Statewide Prosecution, the Clay Qounty
Sheriff's Office, the Florida Department of Law En-
forcement and the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
Smith was charged with conspiring to traffic more
than 400 grams of cocaine, a first-degree felony Four-
teen of his 16 co-defendants have also pled guilty to
charges of conspiracy to traffic in cocaine, 400 grams
or more, and have received sentences involving sub-
stantial prison terms. Today's sentence was handed
down by Judge William Wilkes of the 4th Judicial
Circuit.



Fine art



forgeries


Global Counterfeiting Scams Uncovered

Counterfeit Picasso print of "Francoise Gilot"
For lovers of fine art, it was a veritable field day.
In art shows and galleries across the nation and
around the world and over eBay, a trove of limit-
ed edition prints by master artists started going
up for sale as early as the summer of 1999.
There were two 1968 Pablo Picasso etchings
signed in pencil by the artist and numbered from
an edition of only 50 prints.
There was a signed print of the "Eiffel To.wer"
by Marc Chagall, just one of 90.
There was another Picasso print-a drawing
called "Francoise Gilot"-that had been obtained
from the legendary artist's daughter.
There were thousands of prints by Calder, Dali,
Warhol, Miro, Lichtenstein, and other noted
artists, often signed and numbered, complete
with certificates of authenticity.


All sold for top dollar.
And all total fakes.
The prints sold by select dealers, it turns out,
were counterfeits. The signatures had been
forged, the certificates fabricated, the prices dri-
ven to inflated levels by "shill bids" on eBay and
by other marketing trickery.
Now, seven individuals allegedly behind two sep-
arate but overlapping counterfeit art rings-in-
cluding art dealers in Illinois, Florida, and New
York and distributors in Spain and Italy-have
been charged in two indictments announced on
Wednesday. Together, the scheme is said to have
cost victims in Australia, Canada, Europe,
Japan, and the U.S. more than $5 million.
The case, code-named "Operation Dealer no
Deal," was launched two-and-a-half years ago by
the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Chica-
go Division of the FBI after eBay stepped for-
ward with information about fake artwork being
sold through its Internet auction website.
"EBay was a great partner in this case," said
Chicago. Special Agent Brian Brusokas, a mem-
ber of the -FBI's Art Crime Team who worked on
the investigation. "They identified sellers for us,
gave us bidding histories, and shut down ac-
counts used by con artists."
Postal inspectors played a key role by going un-
dercover in online transactions and in face-to-
face meetings. Also contributing to the investi-
gation were Los Mossos d'Esquadra (the Catalan
police force) in Barcelona, Spain; U.S. Immigra-
tion and Customs Enforcement agents; and the
Northbrook Police Department in Illinois.
Don't let it happen to you. Special Agent Bru-
sokas has a few words of advice when it comes
to buying high-dollar art:
"Get a complete provenance or chain of custody
on each piece to find out where the art came
from originally. Was it obtained directly from an
estate, for example? This information provides a
way to double-check the piece's history instead
of just relying on the certificate of authentici-
ty."
"Research the dealer carefully. Check the Better
Business Bureau for possible complaints. Find
out if they sell only online or if they have a
gallery."
"For pieces of art you already own, you can go
back to the gallery and ask for provenance on
your print. You can also contact artists' founda-
tions which will do side-by-side comparisons
with originals for a fee."
"And remember, when you're trying to find that
one treasure from someone's garage, that's when
you're more likely to let your guard down."
Think you've been victimized by fraudulent art
sales? Then report it to law enforcement by visit-
ing the Northern District of Illinois U.S. Attor-
ney website or by calling its toll-free number at
(866) 364-2621.
The FBI's Art Crime Team, launched in 2004, in-
cludes 13 special agents and three Department of
Justice attorneys. To date, the team has recov-
ered 850 cultural objects valued at more than


$134 million.

CyberSafety messages

in 8 reaches more than

50,000 students
'S
CyberSafety program now in more than
120 schools throughout the state ~
McCOLLUM:
TALLAHASSEE, FL Attorney General Bill McCollum today announced that
his CyberSafety Program has exceeded the 50,000 student mark, reaching
''- : 52,941 students to date throughout the state. The program combines
real-life stories and examples to help middle and high school students
identify ways they could be victimized by predators online and encourages
safe internet use. Members of the Attorney General's Child Predator
CyberCrime Unit have been bringing the 50-minute cybersafety program
students statewide since the beginning of the school year. The school
.i which pushed the program over the 50,000 student mark was Sebastian Middle
School in St. Johns County
S"Nothing is more important than protecting our children, and
education is the key to winning the fight against internet child
predators," said Attorney General McCollum. "This cybersafety message will
save lives, and I applaud the principals who have made it a priority to
get this information to their students."
Principal Kelly Battell of Sebastian Middle School remarked that all

ones and a great time was had by all.

DEHOOKING DEVICE MANDATE
GOES INTO EFFECT IN 60 DAYS


In 60 days, Red Snapper and other reef fish will have
new legal protection, mandated by Amendment 27/14,
a joint plan between the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Man-
agement Council, National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) and National Marine Fish-
eries Services (NMFS). This legislation requires at
least one dehooking device be available for use in re-
moving hooks embedded in Gulf reef fish with mini-
mal damage.


Beginning June 1, Amendment 27/14 will require that
the hook removal device be constructed to allow the
hook to be secured and barb shielded without injur-
ing the fish during the removal process. The dehook-
ing end must be blunt with all edges rounded, and
must accommodate all hook sizes used in the Gulf
reef fisheries.

The goal of Amendment 27/14 and ARC is to foster
the survivability of unwanted, undersized or endan-
gered Gulf of Mexico species. Additional fishery con-
servation partners, including Dr. Guy Harvey and the
Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation in Fort Lauderdale,
have fully endorsed ARC's product line as the best
available products designed to reduce mortality in re-
leased hooked fish and other marine animals.

Budget Cuts Close Forestry
Academy in Levy County

The Forestry Youth Academy in Goethe State Forest
is being closed. The area will lose 35 jobs.

The academy currently houses around 30 juvenile of-
fenders, but most will graduate this year and the few
left will be relocated.

The academy was formed in 1996 to help teenaged
males finish their high school education and learn
vocational skills. Funding came from the Division of
Forestry and the Deparment of Juvenile Justice. The
DJJ is seeing large budget cuts and job losses due to
budget tightening.


Barker To Run For Levy
County Property Appraiser

My name is Osborn "Oz" Barker, and I am
seeking the position of Levy County Property Ap-
praiser as a Republi-
can candidate. I am
concerned about the
issues of taxation,
government spend-
ing, property rights ir
and unfair state reg-
ulations that are af-
fecting all of us.
I worked in
the Property Ap-
praiser's office from
1987 to 1995, and I o
know, first-hand,
what is required for
an effectively run of-
fice. I held the follow- ,.
ing positions: Field
Appraiser, Tangible
Personal Property,
Agricultural and
Timberland Classifi-
cation, data entry
and customer service. During my tenure, I attended
several appraisal courses through the International
Association of Assessing Officers and was awarded
successful completion status of all courses. An impor-
tant item to note, I also have experience with the De-
partment of Revenue Audit process. As your Property
Appraiser, I would "hit the ground running."
I vow to you to be as conservative and judi-
cious with your tax dollars as possible. Being self-em-
ployed for 9 years, I have a greater appreciation for
those among us who make their own way I know
what it's like to live from paycheck to paycheck and
need every spare cent. The money we all pay in taxes
should not be used frivolously and spent carelessly
As your Property Appraiser, I will work to lower ad-
ministrative costs in the appraisers' office and to pro-
inote fiscal responsibility in County government.
I am married to the former Lori Arrington
and have two children, Lauren, 18, and Zach, 9. I am
an active member of First Baptist Church of
Chiefland, and will use my faith and beliefs to bring
Godly leadership to County government at all times,
not just during election year. Like you, I have a vested
interest in what happens in our County government,
and I will work hard to earn your support, trust and
confidence. You can also visit my Web'site ati w .- >;
www.voteforoz.net to learn more about mygOcci.pac,
tional history, faith statement and answers to the
question, "Why Oz?" I look forward to hearing from
you, and together we can make a positive difference
in Levy County

IMPACT 2008


The 4th Annual IMPACT Youth Discipleship
Rally will be held at Fanning Springs Com-
munity Church from March 30th through
April 2nd. IMPACT...... from the Latin IM-
PACTUS which means to push against.
True believers
are "called out"
of darkness into.
the marvelous
light of our
Lord Jesus
Christ. Our IM-
PACT 2008 gath- E "-
erings will seek
equip believers
(children, stu-
dents, and
adults) to "push
against" the on-
slaught of
worldly compro-
mise that is in-
vading our
homes, schools,
workplaces, and
yes, even our churches. This "worldly"
compromise consists of the idea that one
can "pray a sinner's prayer", be baptized
into a local church, and then live anyway
they desire. God raised up judges in the
Book of Judges because, according to
Judges 17:6 and 21:25 ......everyone did what
was right in his own eyes. We are called to
be salt by the Lord Jesus as He follows up
with His teaching on the Beatitudes. How
"happy", "blessed" or fortunate we are if we
have the attitude of a true kingdom citizen.
True salt will impact what it comes in con-
tact with. If we compromise the Lord's stan-
dard in our lives, we will become tasteless &
no longer be good for nothing but to be
walked on. IMPACT 2008 will seek to curb
this tide with powerful, Biblical preaching
that will challenge all who attend about the
reality of their faith.

Our gathering will begin each evening
(Sunday, March 30th through Tuesday,
April 1st) at 7:00 PM. Bret Ellis of Break-
away Ministries, Birmingham, Alabama
will be our speaker. Each evening will fea-
ture dynamic contemporary praise & wor-
ship music that is carefully selected as Bibli-
cally sound. Back by popular demand, we
will once again have Carl Cartee and his
band live and on the big outdoor stage at
Fanning Springs State Park. Based in
Nashville, Tennessee, Carl is a nationally
known singer/songwriter who will thrill you
with his amazing voice and skills on the gui-
tar. Yet his commitment to the inerrancy
and inspiration of Scripture will radiate
though his music as well as his genuine hu-
mility. We'll also be hosting another band
named KALIYL from Jacksonville, Florida
who will kick things off for us.

Our Wednesday evening portion of IMPACT
2008 will be at 6:30 PM at Fanning Springs
State Park. The cost of this concert will be
$4.00 per person. We hope to see you there!

CITY OF CEDAR KEY MARINA RECEIVES
CLEAN MARINA DESIGNATION
-Environmental stewardship a top priority for
City of Cedar Key Marina -
CEDAR KEY-The Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection (DEP), together with the Clean
Boating Partnership, today recognized Cedar Key Ma-
rina as a designated member of the Florida Clean
Marina Program. The facility is the 149th in the state
to become a member of the Florida Clean Marina
Program.
"Clean water is vital to Florida's environment and
economy Clean Marinas and Clean Boatyards such as
the City of Cedar Key lead the way in protecting this
precious resource," said DEP Northeast District As-
sistant Director Bill Green. "Receiving designation as
a Clean Marina verifies that marinas are taking the
necessary steps to protect our waterways."
Florida Clean Marina Program facilities are required
to meet a variety of best management practices to re-
ceive designation. These practices include, but are
not limited to, properly storing and disposing of used
'oil, using fertilizers and pesticides according to direc-
tions and using cleaning methods that prevent the re-
lease of pollutants. In addition to implementing best
management practices, the City of Cedar Key Marina
has implemented a "safety island" with fire extin-
guishers and booming material, has stenciled storm
drains and uses native plants in their landscaping.
The marina also displays maps of the channel which
helps boaters to stay within the channel boundaries
rather than potentially harming seagrass outside of
the channel.
"This island city, with the help of DEP, has taken the
steps towards protecting Florida's waterways and
will continue to protect and improve our surrounding
water bodies and the natural environment" said City
of Cedar Key Commissioner, Sue Coleson. "Our des-
ignation as a Clean Marina will provide an education-
al component to our visiting boaters and hopefully
their commitment to our cause Boat Clean, Boat
Safe."
The Clean Boating Partnership is a consortium of in-
dustry leaders who contribute time and input to the
Clean Marina, Clean Boatyard, Clean Marine Retailer
and Clean Boater programs, which DEP administers,
to protect Florida's waterways. The partnership in-
cludes DEP, Marine Industries Association of Flori-
da, Florida Sea Grant Program, United States Coast
Guard and Coast Guard Auxiliary
"The Clean Boating Partnership commends the City
of Cedar Key Marina for its commitment to protect-
ing Florida's environment," said the Partnership's
Chair John Naybor. "Becoming a designated Clean
Marina is an accomplishment this facility can be
proud of and we welcome them to our Clean Marina
family"
With more than one million registered motorized ves-
sels in Florida, environmental education within ma-
rine industries is the first step towards safeguarding
the state's natural resources. By providing 'green' ed-
ucation and alternatives, the Florida Clean Marina
Program helps ensure a sustainable future for the en-
vironment and the billion-dollar marine industry

NOTICE
From: Dr. David. R. Schneck,
DMD

I just wish to inform the people of the Tri-
County areas, and other areas, of the fact
that I am no longer employed
at Cross City Dental. I am
not on a leave of absence.
My written contract was
terminated Tuesday, March
*' 4, 2008, due to a personal is-
sue between myself and the
owner of Cross City Dental.

The issue has nothing to do with anything
illegal, patient care, dentistry, or the female
staff at the office.

The female office staff currently are, and
have always been dedicated to providing
the best dental care for you, the public.

I am seeking future employment, but due to
the current economy (as it affected the
Georgia Pacific Plant, particularly) and my.
age (62), I am unsure of when that might
occur.

I do graciously thank all of the patients I
have been able to service at Cross City Den-
tal the past 9.5 years. It was a pleasure and
honor to have served you.

Thank you,
David R. Schneck

Roadwork:

Places to avoid if you're

in a rush


Newberry Road (State Road 26) One of the eastbound
lanes between North-
west 43rd and 46th
streets is closed for
roadway repairs
between 9 a.m. and
4 p.m. weekdays.
Northwest Eighth
Avenue can be used as ,
an alternate route. Also, I .,
daytime lane closures
from the Gilchrist County
line to Waldo Road (State
Road 24) as inmate crews i
repaint the roadway mark-
ings.


U.S. 129 Daytime lane clo-
sures between Bell and the
Suwannee County line for
resurfacing.,

U.S. 27 Daytime lane clo-
sures after 8 a.m. to resur-
face between Mayo and
County Road 53 at Buckville.


LEVY COUNTY:

Alternate 27 (State Road 500) No traffic impacts
scheduled as crews landscape between Williston and
Chiefland. Vehicles will be entering and leaving the
roadway near the retention ponds along the 26-mile
long corridor.


State Road 24 No traffic impacts scheduled between
the Channel Four Bridge (Havens Creek) in Cedar
Key and County Road 345 in Rosewood as the resur-
facing project is complete.

State Road 320 Lane closures are expected to begin
March 31 to resurface from U.S. 19 to the Manatee
Springs State Park and including the park entrance
road and their parking lot.

U.S. 19 Daytime lane closures from Inglis to Lebanon
Station for resurfacing and work on the shoulders
alongside the roadway Also, from just south of the
Citrus County line, near the Cross Florida large
Canal Bridge to just south of County Road' 402 (Make a
Dream Come True Drive) the road has been reduced
from two lanes to one lane in each direction to re-
place the bridge railing. Crews are also working on
the culverts off the roadway just south of the bridge
and through the town of Inglis.

- U.S. 41 Crews will be repainting the roadway lines be-
, tween U.S. 27A and the Alachua County line. This is a
moving operation but motorists should not pass in be-
tween the paint truck and the safety truck following
to avoid getting wet paint on their vehicles.


State Road 51 Daytime lane closures between Stein-
hatchee and the Dixie County line for resurfacing and
work on the drainage pipes and shoulders.

The day after Easter marks the migration of our
Northern visitors, sometimes fondly known as "snow-
birds, (sometimes, not so fondly) back to the North
from Central and South Florida. Motorists should be
aware of increased traffic volumes on major north-
south routes such as Interstates 75, 95 and U.S. 19 and
301. Practice courtesy when driving and don't let slow-
er vehicles or drivers "drive you over the edge."

FSU EDUCATION
RESEARCHER TACKLES
'HUGE PROBLEM':
ADOLESCENT LITERACY

Tallahassee, Fla. -- Florida
State University education re-
searcher Judith Irvin is work-
ing to address an urgent prob-
lem in the United States.

"Adolescent literacy is a huge
problem in our country," said
Irvin, a professor of education-
al leadership and policy stud-
ies in FSU's College of Educa-
tion. "Right now there are
something like 6 million stu-
dents who are reading or writ-
ing below grade level and not
acquiring the skills that they
will need after they graduate,
or even to compete in school."

"There is a crying need for im-
proving adolescent literacy, es-
pecially in middle and high
schools in the United States,"
Irvin said of their reason for
writing the book.

"When you think about what
kids need for a very technologi-
cal world, many of the jobs
that they will be competing for
haven't even been defined yet,"


she said. "And so we are also
looking at 21st-century skills
in terms of the technology that
they need. It's not only just
reading from a textbook. It's
also the Internet, the media
and communication skills that
they need to be successful as
college students, as citizens, or
in life in general."

ish Communities; Catholic Chari-

zation, they must have a voluntary
board. Qualifying agencies are
urged to apply.

gency Food and Shelter funds pre-
viously with United Christian Ser-
vices of Dixie County, Inc. partici-
pating. This agency was responsi-
ble for providing mortgage or rent

Education Budget Concerns Grow As The
2008-2009 Legislature Session Begins

As the state sets the stage for the 2008-2009 education
budget, we know that this years budget is going to re-
flect a 1.5 billion shortfall, Our district is already look-
ing at the worst case scenario, which would mean hav-
ing to reduce personnel for the 2008-2009 school year.
Even though we are in the planning stages right now,
we will not know how deep the cuts will be until lath
April or early May, when the legislature gives us our
first budget runs for the 2008-2009 school year.

The legislature should have completed this process late
April or early May After we receive this information,
the School Board will have budget workshops to craft
the budget for the 2008-2009 school year. The School
Board is required by law to present a balanced budget,
meaning one that is within the means the state pro-
vides.

We know that the state economy is slow right now and
that employees are concerned about possible personnel
cuts. We will not have the answer to this dilemma un-
til the state gives us our budget. Our hope is that the
reduction to our school budget would not be so deep,
but that is in the hands of the state legislature.

If you are concerned as we are about this years educa-
tion budget, please contact our legislators, urging them
to make education their top priority, by fully funding
the education budget.

SPRINGHOUSE QUILTER'S NEWS

With the quilt festival now history, Springhouse Quil-
ters can settle back down to their regular quilting
projects of workshops, challenges and just plain
quilting. The members will be participating in a
"Round-Robin-Challenge" during the next 6 months.
This is a volunteer challenge so members who want
to participate simply make one quilt block of any size
and pattern. This is placed into an unmarked bag or
container and for 6 months the bag is rotated between
other participating members to add additional bor-
ders, quilting blocks or embellishments. At the end of
the exchange period, the containers are returned to
the owner. The owner is always surprised to see
what has been added to the original block. The ex-
change will begin at the April regular business meet-
ing. I have participated in previous round robins ex-
changes and I have always been very pleased with the
additional borders that were added to my original
quilt block.

To return some of the kindness that is always extend-
ed to Springhouse members we are always searching
for ways that we can brighten the lives of some spe-
cial people by providing a community service to an
organization or group of people. This year we will be
making "quillows" and lap quilts for needy children
or shut-ins. We are always open to suggestions for
community projects.

The workshop for March will be a nine-patch project
by one of our members, Marilyn Hazelton. Marilyn
lives out of state and migrates to Florida during the
winter months. We always look forward to seeing
Marilyn and seeing some of her new quilting pro-
jects.For information on Springhouse Quilters, please

EARLY ONSET OF EQUINE DISEASES
IN FLORIDA--VACCINATE NOW!


TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles H. Bronson is re-
minding horse owners to take advantage of the vac-
cines available to protect their animals against East-
ern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and West Nile Virus.

As the weather in Florida warms up, the mosquito
populations will increase as will the potential for
mosquito-borne diseases. Already, nine cases of EEE
have been confirmed in Florida since the beginning
of the year even though the peak season does not be-
gin until May.
There were 18
ne cases of EEE
..in 2007 for the
entire year.

Bronson says
the majority
of cases can
be prevented
through prop-
er vaccina-
tions and
booster shots against mosquito-borne illnesses and
he is urging horse owners to take action now. In the
nine cases in 2008, six of the horses had not been vac-
cinated and two had not gotten booster shots. Only
one horse was current with vaccinations.

"I am very concerned about the high number of cases
so early in the year and I hope it doesn't mean we are
in for a bad year," Bronson said. "But we can take
steps to keep that from happening, and that is to get
the vaccinations done as quickly as possible."

EEE is a viral disease that affects the central nervous
system and is transmitted to horses by infected mos-
quitoes. Signs of the virus include fever, listlessness,
stumbling, circling, coma and usually death. The dis-
ease is fatal in horses in 90 percent of the cases.

So far this year EEE has been confirmed in horses in
Putnam, Lake, Polk, Columbia, Clay and Volusia
counties, all of which were fatal. Volusia has been
hit the hardest, with four of the nine cases having
been found there.

Stuff To


Do


Doerfels to perform at Spirit of
the Suwannee Friday night


Gandy Brothers will handle the

entertainment for Saturday night

FREE concert!


The Doerfels, an amazing 12- member family band,
have been performing up and down the East coast
full-time for nearly three years. This Friday night,
March 21, the group will perform at the Spirit of the
Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak.

Admission is free for the entertainment, which will
get underway in the Music Hall at 7 p.m. It will be a
good time to bring out your holiday company and get
them fed from the wonderful menu at the SOS Caf6 or
you can also enjoy the Friday night buffet at great
prices.

The family has traveled far and wide in its 40 foot bus
from Key West to Branson, Missouri, Thomas Point
Beach, Maine and up to North Bay, Ontario, Canada.
The Doerfels were recently invited to visit Australia!

The band was among the Top 10 SPBGMA Band Com-
petition finalists in 2006. The group just recently
signed with Patuxent Records and plan to record a
new album in May, as well as will release in the.next
couple of weeks a new CD done live from NPR radio
show.

Listening to them perform you might never guess the
average age of the band members is 15! The core band
consists of the oldest son T. J, 19, who leads the band,
arranges and composes much of the music; Kim, 17,
Eddy, 14, Joey, 13 and Ben, 12. Tom, the father, used to
play bass but got promoted to bus driver when Joey
just picked up the bass one day and found out he
could play. Mom also travels with the group and sings
a couple songs with Kim, but has the duty of watch-
ing the little ones off stage.

Usually, parents make their kids practice and play
their instruments but in this case, .it's the other way
around. The kids just love to play. The whole family
does come out for some songs and added humor.

If you like country, comedy, gospel and bluegrass in-
terspersed with a touch of blues, jazz, swing and clas-
sical, you will certainly enjoy this amazing, young,
talented band!
