By David Ryman
Herbert Hurst presided
over a feisty meeting of
council members Hard-
en, Dawson, Gooding
and Locklear. In atten-
dance were Attorney
Greg Beauchamp, City
Clerk, Manager, and
Superintendent, the
Police and Fire Chiefs,
and an audience of five
residents. Cross City
Council's lectern has
gone hi-tech, now
sporting a microphone,
amplifier and speaker,
so the voice of the peo-
ple can be better heard.

To clarify part of the
report from the March
25th meeting, "Council-
woman. Harden voiced
concern about mobile
homes being relocated
in Cross City". Her
concern is not, as she
correctly pointed out,
their existence but
their safety Older mo-
biles are more likely to
exhibit electrical prob-
lems, causing fires and
possible electrocution,
and as reported,
changes in construc-
tion standards in 1994
has shown an improve-
ment in storm surviv-
ability that surpasses
that of some site-built
homes. Public safety is
of utmost importance.

During a 14 month period, beginning in
March of 2007, the Dixie County Sher-
iffs Department, along with the Levy
County Sheriffs Office, the Chiefland
Police Department's Drug Task Force,
as well as the FDLE, DEA, and United
States Attorney's Office, launched an
investigation into a drug trafficking or-
ganization operating in Levy and Dixie
Counties. The investigations, dubbed
"Operation Gill Net" (Dixie) and "Opera-
tion Yellow Fever" (Levy), led to the
seizure of 5 kilograms of powder co-
caine and 50 kilograms of crack co-
caine. Seven defendants received feder-
al indictments.

The investigations also resulted in the
arrest of 69 people on state drug
charges, with 203 felony charges.

"This is huge," said Lt. Evan Sullivan of


the Levy County Sheriffs Department.
According to Sheriff Johnny Smith,
"This has been the biggest operation in
Levy County in a long time."

The Sheriffs Departments initially
used funding and an.agent provided by
the FDLE to get the operations under
way. Once the ball got rolling the De-
partments were able to use funds seized
by the drug dealers to make further
buys, effectively turning their own as-
sets against them. "We don't like drug
dealers, but we don't mind spending
their money," Lt. Sullivan said.

Both Sheriffs commended their agents
for all their hard work.

Said Sheriff Hatcher, "I know how
much these guys work, sometimes I go
with them. Thank you for all of your
hard work." ...More info on Page 3

SLOW, Baby sleeping

It's a Girl! (Or maybe a boy!)

by Kathy McKinney
Here's a tip: if a guy called Stan Meeks ever calls you and asks you to go on a boat
ride, take him up on it. He's the "Manatee guy" who spends his days canoeing the
river, protecting the gentle giants who drift there. He's something of a local
celebrity He's been on National Geographic and he was featured in the Orlando
Sentinel. A rugged Vietnam vet with a khaki FWC shirt and intense eyes, he came
to his calling after five years of living ,
homeless on the river after "his life im-
ploded."
The new baby hitches a ride on mom
On Thursday afternoon, a brand new baby manatee and her (his) mom were spotted lounging in
Fanning Springs. According to the Fish and Wildlife Ranger Lynn, who spotted them, the mother
was helping the baby breathe by pushing him up out of the water, which indicates that the baby
was less than two days old.

A group of manatees were in the water, just sort of snoozing near the swimming dock, while the
*D, mother and baby stayed further out, near the opening to the river. The mother placed herself be-_,
tween any nearby manatees or people; a protective instinct with which manatees are not often cred-
ited. Her protective instincts were a bit misguided, however. Her proximity to the river placed her
baby just that much closer to the speeding boats that whizzed by, paying no heed to the possibility
that the river they were playing in was a newborn's nursery

announces for


school board


I would like to take
this opportunity to
announce my candi-
dacy for the District 4
School Board seat.
My name is Cheryl
Pridgeon and I have
lived in Dixie County
my entire life. My
husband, Terry Prid-
geon, and I have two
children and two
grandchildren. I am an active member of
Rock Sink Baptist Church.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree
from the University of Florida in 1985. I
have worked in the Dixie County school sys-
tem for 20 years. During this time I have
taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade science; physi-
cal science, biology, and marine biology at
Dixie County High School; and 6th, 7th, and
8th grade physical education at Ruth Rains
Middle School. I have coached softball, vol-
leyball, track, and cheerleading.
It was in Mrs. Bessie Sheppard's 1st grade
class that I first knew I wanted to be a
teacher. From that moment, I never consid-
ered another occupation, I knew I wanted to
teach. My grandmother and mother were
both teachers so I guess you could say "it was
in my blood".
Our school system will continue to face
many serious issues in the coming years. I
am ready and qualified to assist in making
critical decisions affecting our schools.

Buzbee runs for


Tax Collector


Hello Dixie County! This is Barbara B.
Buzbee. I am announcing my candidacy for'
Dixie County Tax Collector.

I am a daughter.of the late Rev. Harry F and
Irene Belyew, and daughter-in-law of the late
Rev. Elmer L. and Drewnetta Buzbee. Both
my father and father-in-law pastored church-
es in Dixie County.

I am Married to Elbert L. "Bert" Buzbee and
we have 3 sons, Evan (Ruthy), Jeremy (Shan-
non), Matthew (Shannon), and 10 grandchil-
dren.

I have lived in Dixie County for 47 years and
I'm a graduate of Dixie County High School.

My experience with the tax collector's office
began in 1984 under the Honorable Grady
Hires. It continued under the Honorable
Idelle C. Hatcher for the next 12 very pleasir'-
able years. My service to Dixie County con-
tinued in the office of the tax collector under
the Honorable Joyce H. Davis, giving me a to-
tal of 20 years of service to Dixie County in
this office. During this period I was fortunate
to be able to acquire the education and certifi-
cations necessary for
qualification as your
tax collector.

I believe my knowl-
edge of the internal
operation of this office
and its staff would as-
sist me in becoming
an asset for Dixie
County and...

How'd you like the debate?


Coming the day after the dreaded income tax filing dead-
line, the "debate" between Democratic presidential candi-
dates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama was an interesting
change of pace for TV viewers: Or at least it was something
different for the late night comedians to make jokes about.
Unfortunately, after two hours of Barack and Hillary, I was-
n't about to sit up and listen to a re-hash on the late news;
followed by hastily written jokes on the late night talk
shows.
However, I did pay close attention to the "debate," and I
will give ABC News commentators Charles Gibson and
George Stephanopolous high marks for not doing what I
was thinking they might do on this occasion. ABC isn't the
worst, but the major networks have a way of lobbing "soft-
ball" questions at liberal candidates on occasions such as
this.
Not George and Charlie, though. They hit on the hot topics
right from the opening bell, much to the surprise of ob-
servers on both the (political) right and the left. Barak got
nailed on his pastor-mentor of many years, the Rev. Jeremi-
ah Wright, who seems to think "G.D. America" is some-
thing it's all right to say in church, as well as his associa-
tion with left wing radical Bill Ayers, who is now a college
professor who remains unrepentant about his fire-bombing
college days.
Hillary didn't get off the hook, either. The favorite gaffe of
her critics at the moment is of course her yarn about being
under sniper fire when she visited Bosnia in 1996. Far from
being at risk from enemy fire, she was welcomed in a for-
mal ceremony, along with some show-biz celebrities.
Both candidates were questioned on issues relating to gun
control and the economy On the former subject, there was
much waffling, leaving one with the impression that nei-
ther candidate would emerge as any friend of the Second
Amendment. While neither was willing to take the aggres-
sive anti-gun stand that both had taken on past occasions
(even a liberal understands that stuff don't play well in '
Middle America), there was no indication that there would
be any top-level support for the rights of gun owners if ei-
ther of these candidates made it to the White House.
As for the economy, it seems like we heard very little be-
yond the failed campaign to raise taxes to solve all the myr-
iad economic problems our nation faces. Neither candidate
would commit to leaving the 15% capital gains tax where
it's at, rather than raising it, even though the current rate
has produced more tax revenue than previous higher rates
simply because it gets investment capital moving. Obama
even said he would favor raising the capital gains tax in
spite of this, because it would be "more fair."
With the country lapsing into recession, the dollar falling
drastically on the world market and inflation impacting a
lot more than the price of motor fuel, we need answers that
amount to a lot more than raising taxes on the rich.
Hopefully, the all-important question of what kind of fed-
eral judges Clinton or Obama would appoint will be ad-
dressed at some point before the November election. On
this issue, the ABC team gave the candidates a pass. That's
significant because neither Clinton nor Obama are lines up
with the voting public on issues like Second Amendment
rights, illegal immigration, partial birth abortion and gay
marriage; and either Hillary or Barack would likely ap-
point "progressive" judges who would ignore both the Con-
stitution and the voters in these areas.
Otherwise, the "debate" would lead one to think there isn't
a whole lot of ideological difference between these two can-
didates, but let's give the ABC team credit for making some
introspective inquiries of two politicians who probably
thought they'd be treated to a two hour liberal media love-
fest.

Card of



Thanks


We can't begin to express our gratitude for all of the
community support, concern and prayers during Mor-
gan's recent illness and hospitalization. We would espe-
cially like to thank Aaron and Allison with Dixie Coun-
ty EMS for your courteousness, professionalism and
for making the call to have Morgan sent to the hospital
via helicopter which helped save her life. We would
also like to thank our pastor Bobby Lindsey and'our
church family at Suwannee River Baptist as well as all
of the churches in the surrounding counties for hold-
ing Morgan up in your prayers. Finally, we would like
to say thanks to the staff at the Gilchrist and Dixie
County Health Departments for all of your visits,
phone calls, food, prayers and support during this time.
All of you have a special place in our hearts. By the
,grace of God, Morgan is home and doing much better.
We are truly blessed to live in such a caring and com-
passionate community. Once again, thank you from
the bottom of our hearts.

Buck, Jana, Brenna and Morgan Land


THANK




YOU


I had a misfortune Friday night, April 18th, and could
write pages explaining why it happened, but the main
point is that it did happen aqd there were a lot of good
people who helped me get through the problem.

I do not know the names of the people who came by
and the ones who stood by, but I would like to thank
them also those who tried to pull my truck out, 2 differ-
ent vehicles, and especially those who helped to correct
the problem, even getting wet in the process. Also,
those who made phone calls to get wrecker service on
the way, and the person who offered the warm comfort
of her car when she saw I was wet all over and cold;
who I refused 2 or 3 times out of respect for her car be-
cause I know what wet does to the car. furniture.

To all these people I give my wholehearted thanks,
many thanks because you have shown that there are a
lot of good people here in Dixie County and the neigh-
boring counties. I have used this particular boat ramp
many, many times, even as far back as when there was
a restaurant on Sired Island. There have been many


than the ill-fated cactus.

That's one blessing that we have, as a rural people.
Most of us have the land and the knowledge of how to
provide some of our own food. Like Hank, Jr. says,
"He can skin a buck, he can run a trout line, and a
country boy can survive." Darn good thing, because I
have the unnerving certainty that we're going to need
some of that self-reliance in the days ahead. Do your
family a favor; plant something. Just in case.



Support the



troops



Last night ( 4/17/08 ) on both NBC and ABC news, it
was reported that some 300,000 US Troops are suffering
from major depression or post-traumatic stress from
serving in Iraq and Afghanistan and over 320,000 of
our troops have brain injuries.

This was a study by the Rand Corp. and has not be
challenged. Also on NBC news last night a report on
the new US Embassy in Iraq. It is the largest of it kind -
and one of the largest building in the world. Est. cost
of operation per year at two billion.

It would be nice to have two billion a year for medical
care of our brave men and women who have serviced
our country so well. Please write your US representa-
tives and tell them to really support the troops by in-
creasing funds for the VA and military hospitals.

changes over the years, mostly to the good, but that
does not keep a person from backing too far on a boat
ramp when his rear tires drop off the end of the ramp
into a hole or soft area. After 9 P.M. with spring tide
coming in - it can raise 2-3 feet in a very short time. My
cell phone was not reaching out, my vehicle was not
able to pull up over the ramp end, and even the assis-
tance of 2 other vehicles were not able to pull the truck
and trailer up the ramp. These people offered to call a
wrecker service, and to notify my wife. At that time I
would have gladly paid for the tries of 2 wreckers if it
should happen that way

I sat on the side of the ramp, waiting for wrecker As-
sistance, watching the tide rise up to the floorboard, up
to and onto the seats, and higher. Seeing my truck
lights come on, then the horn starts to blow. Continu-
ous for a couple of minutes, then quietness. Then,
more people came to see what was going on - calling to
see if the wrecker was on its way, trying to comfort me,
standing by until the wrecker service came, helping
"Red Top" hook up to my truck, even getting wet. All
the people there knew Red Top and liked him, and most
of them knew how to help him. I knew him, but this is
the first time I have used his service. I too like Randy
Riels, but I hope I never need his service again. I sup-
pose all of us dom but it is good to have his service
available when it is needed.

TALLAHASSEE - Gregory R. Miller, United States At-
torney for the Northern District of Florida announced
today the indictment and arrest of thirty-two defen-
dants on federal and state drug charges stemming from

early March 2007, the Drug Enforcement Administra-
tion, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Levy
County Sheriffs Office, Dixie County Sheriffs Office,
and the United States Attorneys Office for the North-
ern District of Florida initiated an investigation into.
the large-scale distribution of cocaine base, commonly
referred to as "crack cocaine," by an organization oper-
ating primarily in Levy and Dixie Counties.
On February 26, 2008, a federal indictment was re-
turned against seven individuals on the charge of con-
spiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to dis-
tribute more than 5 kilograms of cocaine and more
than 50 kilograms of cocaine base, in violation of Title
21, United States Code, Sections 841(a)(1),
841(b)(l)(A)(ii) and (iii), and 846.

Bear Baseball Honors Seniors

Another tough loss to Bell for Varsity

JV wins 13-2

by Angel Lee
In front of a bigger -
crowd than usual,
the Bears hosted the
Bell Bulldogs in . *
their final regular.. ..,' -
season game. The . .
Bears also honored '
their 3 seniors, Ko- :
rde O'Steen, Buddy .
Philmon, and Colton .
Richardson. It was a . .. -'
tough game, but the .
Bears fought hard .
the whole game. Bell
jumped out front
scoring 2 in the. .
First, and the Bears
added a run in the
bottom of the in- Seniors Colton Richardson, Korde O'Steen and Buddy Philmon
ning. Bell added 2
more in the 2nd and in the 4th inning, Bell added 5 more, and the Bears pushed 2
more runs across the plate.

The Bears fought hard and never gave up, but took a very hard loss, losing 16-3.
Emotions ran high, as tears were shed after the game. Parents, Family, and
Friends all let a few tears fall for the 3 seniors who played their final Baseball
Game as Dixie Bears. I think even a few players might have let a few tears fall, but
you'll never get them to admit that I'm sure! The Bears played hard all season
long, and we will surely miss the seniors. We're all looking forward to the rest of
the team coming
back next year,
and playing just
as hard and win-
ning even more
games next
year!!!!!

The JV team also
hosted Bell in
their final game
'of the season, and,
took home a big
win for the Bears,
beating the Bull-
S . dogs 13-2. Way To
%' Go Boys!!!

Dixie Resident witnesses historical event
Florida Democrats Throw Temper Tantrum


The Florida legislature doesn't do filibusters; so when House Democrats didn't
get their way on an education bill, they invoked an obscure clause of the
Florida Constitution that let them demand a full reading of each bill present-
ed on the House floor. That clause hasn't been utilized in over seven years.

Casey McKinney, daughter of the editor, is working as an aide in the House this
term and got a front-row seat for the shenanigans. According to Casey, one of the
higher-ranking staff called her out of a committee meeting to
watch the goings-on, saying to "come watch history." It all started
when Rep. Bendrqss-Mindingall, a Miami Democrat, tried to
amend a curriculum bill, but she was put off for another vote on a
different curriculum bill. Minority leader Dan Gelber got angry
and after a huddle with other dems, demanded the full reading
when the Republican leadership called for a vote on the second
bill. After the Dems requested that each bill be read in its entire-
ty, young clerks, stood and began taking turns reading the long,
tedious bills around 11:30 in the morning. One Miami Republican
gave the staff a break and took a turn reading in Spanish.

The Democrats who had demanded the reading were ignoring it, Casey
roaming around, chatting on their cell phones, text messaging, surf-
ing the internet and sending pages for snacks. The House Speaker, Marco Rubio, a
republican from Miami, grew so angry at the disregard that the dems were show-
ing for the staff he locked the doors, forcing all the members to sit down. He cut
off the food delivery After a while, he got fed up and did the unthinkable: he cut
off their internet.

The dems were not deterred, however, and the legislative gridlock went on for
more than 16 hours. According to the Miami Herald, Rubio stated in an e-mail, "I
could understand if our motion to limit debate was part of a pattern of behavior.
But this was the first and only time we have ever done this. To respond with an un-
precedented procedural obstruction was simply a temper-driven overreaction."
Rubio also explained that "The only time I got upset is when I felt they were being
disrespectful to the readers. These kids were really the ones that got the brunt of
this."


Historical Society Open House


In the summer of 2000,
the Dixie County Histor-
ical Society hosted a Re-
union to bring together
former Old Town Ele-
mentary students. Thus
the beginning of years
of work to restore the
building that was built
in 1909. That was a
GREAT day! The Histor-
ical Society has added to
the "great day list" with
the Open House that
took place last Saturday
at the Dixie County Cul-
tural Center in Old
Town.

There were guests from surrounding
cities, including Cross City, Chiefland,
Trenton, Gainesville, Lake City, Live
Oak, Tallahassee, and Jacksonville. We
opened the doors early because inter-
ested people were there before the
scheduled time. We did not mind. We
are very excited to see the interest in
our museum and the restoration of this
"first brick building" that was built in
Dixie County There were lots of mem-
ories and pictures shared and friend-
ships renewed. A great time was had
by all. We did not want to see it end,
but end it did. We are already making
plans for another celebration at our
Dixie County Cultural Center. If you
were unable to attend this past Satur-
day, we would like for you to stop by to

We do regret that two people who have

project could hot be there. We want
Evonne Cline and Cindy Chewning to

A big "Thank You" goes to those indi-

us not forget the young people that

HOSA Thanks The Community


DCHS Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) attended the 30th State
Leadership Conference and Competition in Orlando on April 9-13. There were
over 1600 students from across Florida in attendance. Students had the opportuni-
ty.to compete in many competitive events. DCHS HOSA had two winning teams at
the SLC: Kiya Schrader, Ashley Abney, and Christy Brannin won first place in
Medical Reading and Mandy Cannon and James Blacketer placed 2nd in the EMT
competition.

It takes practice to compete well but it also takes community support to allow
these students to compete. DCHS HOSA would like to thank Capt. Chad Reed from
the Dixie County Sheriff's Office for contributing the scenario in the Forensic
Medicine Category

Thank you to Ray Snook at Centerplate in Gainesville for allowing us to earn mon-
ey at the soft drink and lemonade stands. We would also like to thank the follow-
ing merchants for contributing prizes for our drawing to earn money to go to state
competition: Kings Oil, Advance Auto Parts, Smokey's, LA Salon, 7th Heaven Day
Spa and Mitch's Gold and Diamonds.

The winners of the HOSA drawing were Tammy Rollison-Advance Auto, Lori Ab-
ney-King's Oil, Shelly Cannon-LA Salon, Debra Hodge-Smokey's Danny Herring-
7th Heaven Day Spa and Rudy Wolf-Earrings from Mitch's Gold.

Congratulations to these students for a job well done!


SPURLIN FAMILY
SAYS THANK YOU

How do we even begin to
say how grateful we are
to so many generous peo-
ple? We aren't' going to
even try to name each of
you because first of all,
this paper couldn't hold
all of your names. Also,
there were so many indi-
viduals, families, busi-
nesses, and churches that
gave so much we wouls
surely miss someone and
would be extremely sor-
ry. So, we want to begin,
by saying THANK YOU
from the bottom of our
hearts to everyone who
called, visited, sent flow-
ers, sent food, cards,
money, and most impor-
tantly everyone who has
and continues to pray for
us all...we are stren-
thened by your prayers.
We miss Cricket every
minute of every day and


only find comfort in
knowing we will be with
him again, one day soon,
in heaven.

I want to thank all of you
with the Town of Cross
City..Cricket loved his
job and loved y'all. He
would be so grateful to
know how good you all
have been to me and the
boys. And my work fami-
ly, Dixie District Schools
and RRMS, ou must
know how appreciative I
am for the calls, visits,
food, flowers, cards, mon-
ey and prayers. It is un-
believable how many
days you onated to me so
I can take the time I need
to get everything done. I
know that you gave days
you needed for your ba-
bies, so I could be here
for mine...Thank you!

We would like to thank
each of you that have
worked on our house.


This house is Cricket and
my dream house and it
overwhelms me to see it
almost complete, This
would not have been pos-
sible without each of you
who volunteered your
time to cault, paint,
sweep, hang baseboards,
clean windows, lay floor-
ing and the list goes on
and on. A special thank
you to Flying Haw, Flori-
da Foest, Dixie Appli-
ance, Steinhatchee Hard-
ware and Wayne Wright
Plumbing for donating so
many things for the
house.

Last but not least, the
dinner that so many hard
working people made
possible last Friday...we
love you all. Each of you
that planned, prepared,
cooked, served, delivered
and cleaned up you truly
have a heart of gold and
your rewards in heaven
are great.


Biker gang rides


through Cross City




-v-A













Pictured from left to right are Dot Halvorsen, Mayor Tank Lee, Kristy Halvorsen,
Myrian Steinbaugh (who came from Brazil to make the trip), Jan Schaeffler,
Sharon McQueen, Carla Monnin (Driver of their support vehicle), Karen Freeman
(owner of Acme Bicycle Shop), Peggy Nederveld, Priscilla Edwards, Laurie Graeb-
ner, Shirley L. Young, Maria Baily, and Rose Gatto. Have a wonderful trip!

On Monday, April 21, 2008 a group of bicyclists passed through the town of Cross
City The ladies were enroute to Punta Gorda, FL, having pedalled from Port Char-
lotte, and were kind enough to stop for a moment to meet our Mayor and allow us
to interview them.

This is their second year making the trip. Karen Freeman, the owner of Acme Bi-
cycle Shop in Punta Gorda, came up with the idea. She wanted to start a group for
women bicyclists to ride cross-country. They ride for their health, for fun, and just
to show that they can. Ages in the group range from 39 to 65+. No boys allowed.
"Several men have asked to ride with us," said Ms. Freeman, "we tell them they
can come, but they have to shave their legs first."

When they arrived in Cross City they had already been riding for 100 miles. Dot
Halvorsen met them at Subway with a bag of chocolate chip cookies, Mayor Tank
Lee welcomed them to our town and stood for some photographs, but unfortunate-
ly had to decline their offer to ride with them, as his back was "acting up".

The entire trip is about 350 miles long, and takes 6 days to complete. Casualties so
far were one tire and one inner-tube. The group tends to ride at a more leisurely
pace than some of their counterparts. "Riding slower, we see a lot of things the
faster riders miss," said Ms. Freeman.

The bicycles they are riding are made from varying materials, ranging from alu-
minum, to an ultra-light carbon composite. Most of their cycles were of the more
familiar design,but they had one recumbent cyclist. A recumbent bicycle allows
the rider to pedal from a seated position, with their back supported, and t eir feet
at about the same elevation as their seat. As you cannot "push off" very well from
such a position, it can be difficult to get started.

If you would like more information on their trip, or on cycling in general, check
out the Acme Bicycle Shop's website at www.acmebicycleshop.com

PRIGEON, continued from page one

I have been in the trenches, I know our students,
their concerns and needs. I personally know the ma-
jority of the administrators, teachers, and support
staff in our schools and I am comfortable with and
willing to listen to and talk with them about issues af-
fecting our classrooms everyday.
Young people are my passion. You, and they, can
rest assured that with every decision I make as a
school board member, I will have their best interest in
mind.
I will be out-and-about trying to see as many of

CITYFUNDING...from page one

Escar Thomas addressed the Council suggesting that
the new park be named for Prince Oliver, Clifford
Clark, Emma Dawson, Eugene McDowell and Carrie
Daniels. The consensus opinion of the Council is that
naming anything for individuals can cause problems,
preferring to place a memorial dedicating the park in
memory and appreciation of community contribu-
tions given by individuals. Placing a memorial wall at
both parks and alternating additions of notable per-
sonage between sites might solve many of the issues
involved.

Both the Police and Fire Chiefs reported that state
and federal funding are being reduced and have been
over the last 8 years, whilst the issues they face are
becoming more complex. A case in point being vehic-
ular accidents were occupants need to be extracted
from the wreckage rapidly Before the advent of side
impact airbags, the 'Jaws of Life' could be used to cut
sections away to allow access. Now, crews have to be
aware that cutting in the wrong place can cause the
airbag to deploy with explosive force endangering the
survivors and the rescuers attending.

Reduction of funding at all levels is a major concern
at both city and county levels as it is pervasive, effect-
ing all areas of our lives. Legislative resolutions man-
date actions be performed at the local level but the re-
sources, given initially, are withdrawn leaving a fi-
nancial shortfall. In these grim economic times the
onus is either placed on citizens to fund the deficit or
services have to be reduced in either quantity or
quality

A further side effect of the economic downturn is
that, having a volunteer fire service, crew members
no longer have the time to donate to the community
as they have to fulfill their family obligations first by
working more to pay the bills. Back in the day you
put your name on a waiting list to volunteer, now
they have to take whatever they can get. If you have
ever considered becoming a volunteer fire-fighter
now is the time to put your name on that list.


Councilman Locklear posed the question of curb-side
recycling. "We had it, now we don't, can we get it back
?" Mike Cassidy, City Manager, will be looking into
how Waste Pro can assist with curb-side recycling
and alternate arrangements for trash containers at
the parks so that trash is not strewn around the area.
He will also be investigating additional signage, in-
cluding City limit sign on 351, stop signs for addition-
al 4-way stops to calm traffic in residential areas
where children play and a new sign for Martin
Luther Boulevard, which is the new alternate desig-
nation for Leon Street.

The park availability signs are now posted and as
soon as locks are acquired, the Police will be enforc-
ing the opening hours.


High Springs has recently enacted resolutions involv-
ing the location of adult stores within their city, our
council will be looking into instigating similar codes.
An unappreciated aspect of local government is elect-
ed members having to constantly 'watch our backs' re-
garding upcoming legislation. In many cases state
and federal officials are enacting laws that could have
devastating effects on our rural environment. The on-
going issue of permitting qf strip mining within Dix-
ie County by anyone who applies to the state for ap-
proval, bypasses county authority completely, unless
the county effect resolutions that override it. A simi-
lar issue was addressed at the City Council meeting
whereby they will be required to follow guideline as
to the protocol used for their meetings, under the
guise of open and fair government. The City already
has public meetings where members of the public
can address the council with any concerns or issues
they may have. All that is required is for them to for-
inalize the protocol and write it into the books. This,
of course, deflects them from their goal of making
the city bigger and better so that it can continue to
live up to the slogan "The biggest little city in Dixie".



Open Ceremony for Little League has been pushed

Dillon Raker Elected

Florida Beta President



This is the third con-
secutive year that
the Florida Beta
President has been
from the Dixie Beta
Club. Dillon's cam-
paign slogan, "Dill
or No Deal" was
based on the popular
game show "Deal or
No Deal". The cam-
paign skit to get Dil-
lon elected was just
as popular as Dillon
himself, winning a
remarkable first
place award in the
campaign skit cate-
gory. The banner, which depicted a beautiful cruise
ship sailing on the "Ocean of Opportunities," also
took home first place. This is the first time Dixie has
ever won first place in the banner competition. The
group talent this year was a concoction of beachy
music and bright costumes as Dixie sang and danced
to the music of legends such as Jimmy Buffet and
The Beach Boys. Their group talent won an impres-
sive third place.

This year's convention was also a time for Dixie to
shine academically. The quiz bowl team won fourth
place, Will Gove won 2nd place in Science, and Brit-
ney Parks won 2nd place in Social Studies. Tyler
Johnson (who was largely responsible for the first
place banner) took home 2nd place in On-Site Colored
Pencils, while Alyssa Jenkins placed 2nd in On-Site
Acrylics and Buddy Philmon, this'year's outgoing
State Beta President, placed 2nd in Black and White
Sketching.

Way to go DCHS Betas for all your hard work! A big
"Thank You" is owed to all of the parents and chaper-
ones that helped make this year's convention a suc-
cess. We hope to see similar results at the National
Beta Convention in Myrtle Beach on June 18-22.

teen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of
the written notice, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), Florida
Statutes, however, any person who has asked the Department for notice of
agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such no-
tice, regardless of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at
the address indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person
to file a petition or request for enlargement of time within fourteen days of
receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request
an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding ini-
tiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer
upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Ad-
ministrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Depart-
ment's action is based must contain the following information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner;
the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner's representa-
tive, if any; the Department permit identification number and the county in
which the subject matter or activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice
of the Department action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's substantial interests are
affected by the Department action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are
none, the petition must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner contends warrant re-
versal or modification of the Department action;
(f) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as
the rules and statutes which entitle the petitioner to relief; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating pre-
cisely the action that the petitioner wants the Department to take.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to for-
mulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Depart-
ment's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this no-
tice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final
decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to
the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner
may elect to pursue mediation. The election may be accomplished by filing
with the Department a mediation agreement with all parties to the proceed-
ing (i.e., the applicant, the Department, and any person who has filed a
timely and sufficient petition for a hearing). The agreement must contain
all the information required by Rule 28-106.404, Florida Administrative
Code. The agreement must be received by the clerk in the Office of Gen-
eral Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, within ten days after the
deadline for filing a petition, as set forth above. Choosing mediation will
not adversely affect the right to a hearing if mediation does not result in a
settlement.
As provided in Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, the timely
agreement of all parties to mediate will toll the time limitations imposed by
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, for holding an administra-
tive hearing and issuing a final order. Unless otherwise agreed by the par-
ties, the mediation must be concluded within sixty days of the execution of
the agreement. If mediation results in settlement of the administrative dis-
pute, the Department must enter a final order incorporating the agreement
of the parties. Persons seeking to protect their substantial interests that
would be affected by such a modified final decision must file their petitions
within fourteen days of receipt of this notice, or they shall be deemed to
have waived their right to a proceeding under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes. If mediation terminates without settlement of the
dispute, the Department shall notify all parties in writing that the administra-
tive hearing processes under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes, remain available for disposition of the dispute, and the notice will
specify the deadlines that then will apply for challenging the agency action
-and electing remedies under those two statutes. 17

T. L. Moore .
Our Diana lookalike Banquet was held March 30 at
Petrollo's Restaurant. The designs included six T-
shirts: titled Princess Diana, Spirit of the Suwannee,
Confederate Men, Cow Mechanic, On the Suwannee
and Alpha Angel.

There were two calf-length wedding dresses, one of
pastel lightweight tapestry with baseball cap style of
same fabric and mid-back veil with hearts woven into
the design. The other short dress was of washable
white satin with a silver braid running down the left
side of the dress from sparse straps triangle neckline
to the hemline. A silver and crystal crown was the
headpiece. The full length gown's skirt was a circle of
white marshmallow fabric and the top was a hich-
neck halter of the same fabric.

A hip-length long sleeved floral quilted jacket was
worn,over the dress. There were three Dixie County
jumpers to be worn with just as charming blouses.
Equestrian and boating outfits were also shown.
Imaginationwas revealed in a cotton shopping dress
with manatees against a blue-green background with
cheerful river flowers. A mixture of suede spandex,
and rayon crepe made an unuaual lovelyhooded out-
fit. Designers were Dorothea De Veer Smith, Lady
Barbara Moore, Tina Celia LaLonde and VP. Perruzi.
Clare MacDonald brought her hand made gems in her
own designed exquisite jewelry. We were very fortu-
nate to have the display of such gifted talent. The
April meeting will be Thursday the 24th at the "Club
House," our Vice President's Florida home, 74 SE 870
St, Old Town. (One half mile on the right from
Maria's Dixie Nut HOuse, corner of Hwy 19/98 and
CR 55A. We'll have light soup and sandwiches, tea,
coffee and ice cream at 6:00 pm.

We expect to have our private Tighe Laurest Moore
Memorial Research Library open around the second
week of July, 2008.

From the Wall Street
Journal: Gun owners are
happiest people in the US

In 2006, 36% of gun owners said
they were "very happy," while 9%
were "not too happy" Meanwhile,
only 30% of people without guns
were very happy, and 16% were
not too happy

In 1996, gun owners spent about
15% less of their time than
nonowners feeling "outraged at
something somebody had done."
It's easy enough in certain
precincts to caricature armed
Americans as an angry and mis-
erable fringe group. But it just is-
n't true. The data say that the
people in the approximately 40
million American households
with guns are generally happier
than those people in households
that don't have guns.

Department of Environmental
Protection
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE
PERMIT

The Department of Environmental
Protection gives notice of its intent
to issue a permit (File No. 15-
283096-001-El) and authorization to
use sovereign submerged lands
owned by the Board of Trustees of
the Internal Improvement Trust
Fund (Board of Trustees) to Jim
Brown of Alabama, INC to construct
a 15 slip commercial dock that will
preempt 6,682.10 square feet of
sovereign submerged lands.

The activity is located at 6898 358
Hwy, Steinhatchee, Dixie County,
Section 26, Township 09 South,
Range 09 East, Latitude 29 degrees
40' 4.0162", Longitude -83 degrees
23' 12.8526", Steinhatchee River,
Class III Waters, not an Aquatic
Preserve, not a Shellfish Harvesting
Area, not Outstanding Florida Wa-
ters.

Under this intent to issue, the permit
Is hereby granted subject to the ap-
plicant's compliance with any re-
quirement in this intent to publish
notice of this intent in a newspaper
of general circulation and to provide
proof of such publication in accor-
dance with Section 50.051 of the
Florida Statutes. This action is final
and effective on the date filed with
the Clerk of the Department unless
a sufficient petition for an adminis-
trative hearing is timely filed under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the
Florida Statutes as provided below.
If a sufficient petition for an adminis-
trative hearing is timely filed, this in-
tent to issue automatically becomes
only proposed agency action on the
Application, subject to the result of
the administrative review process.
Therefore, on the filing of a timely
and sufficient petition, this action
will not be final and effective until
further order of the Department.
When proof of publication is provid-
ed, if required by this intent, and if a
sufficient petition is not timely filed,
the permit will be issued as a minis-
terial action. Because an adminis-
trative hearing may result in the re-
versal or substantial modification of
this action, the applicant is advised
not to commence construction or
other activities until the deadlines
quoted below for filing a petition for
an administrative hearing or request
for an extension of time have ex-
pired and until the permit has been
executed and delivered.

Mediation is not available.

A person whose substantial inter-
ests are affected by the Depart-
ment's action may petition for an
administrative proceeding (hearing)'
under Sections 120.569 and 120.57
of the Florida Statutes. The petition
must contain the information set
forth below and must be filed (re-
ceived by the clerk) in the Office of
General Counsel of the Department
at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Flori-
da 32399-3000.

r Henry Allen


HENRY ALLEN, 64, went to be with the Lord on

1944 and raised in Ocala. He was a saved, baptized
member of New Beginnings Church in Horseshoe
Beach, FL. He also attended the First Assembly of
God Church in Belleview during the past two years.

24 years. After retiring, he went on to work 16 years

Faith Baptist Church News

Little Miss Kyleigh Landrum did the special music
in the morning service and what a wonderful job she
did. If you weren't there to hear Kyleigh you truly It
blessed us all. In the evening service, the Doziers
from West Virginia did two songs and blessed our
hearts. Debbie Phillips and Dot Britton finished up
the special music and they did a good job as well. If
you missed either service today, you truly missed a
mighty blessing.
There will be a Men's Rally at Middle Florida Bap-
tist Assembly on May 2nd with Bro Eddie Gandy from
First Baptist Church in High Springs as the key
speaker. Supper will be served and will cost $7.50 a
plate if you sign up and let Bro. Jackie know you're
going by the 22nd of April so he can call it in and tell
them how many to expect. After April 22nd, tickets at
the door will be $10.00 per meal. Faith Baptist
Church will pay for the meals for the members going
from our church, so be sure you let Bro. Jackie know

New Prospect Baptist News

To continue a line of thought from last week, it truly
seems that each day spent in church worshiping our
Lord DOES get better! Sunday was no exception, as
our choir and musicians blessed us with worship in
song, and Bro. Billy excelled in delivering two fine
messages from God's Holy Word. If you're feeling bat-
tered by the trials of this world, please consider pay-
ing us a visit at New Prospect and see what God
might have in store for you at this point in your life.

Please don't forget the Community Sing to-be held
Saturday evening, April 26th, beginning at 6 PM at
New Prospect. If you like good gospel music and
singing, this is your chance to enjoy some of the best!
On Monday, April 28th, our Ladies' Ministry will hold
their monthly meeting.

Once again, we stress that all visitors (and stayers)
are welcome to come fellowship with us anytime...the.
Lord loves you, and so do we! Have a good week and,
as always, remember to pray for all those on the
church prayer lists, our military personnel in harm's
way, and our President and other leaders. May God
bless and keep you safe is our prayer.

Springhouse Quilters News.

Last Tuesday was a very busy day for Frances Williams. She was the leader get-
ting both the day group and night group of Springhouse Quilters making "Quil-
lows" to be used as the community service project for this year. Each year, Spring-
house selects an organization needing assistance by providing them with a
sewing-quilted items to be used by their clients. This year, Another Way has been
selected as the recipient of our lap quilts and "quillows." A quillow is a twin bed
size quilt which can be folded and tucked into a pillow that is attached to the quilt.
Approximately 30 Springhouse members joined together to make the "quillows." It
was a fun day and each of the ladies finished at least one "quillow."
The beginner classes have all finished for this session. The day and night classes
this year were full. There are now another new group of eager quilters just wait-
ing to get started on their next project.

The night group of working ladies made their first round-robin swap during their
meeting last week. There were 9 members who signed to participate in this fun
project. Each person participating places one quilt block in a brown bag. The bags
are numbered and then participants select one bag to add a "round" for the month.
The bag is due in the next month at the regular business meeting and the bags are
again swapped. At the end of the swapping period, the block is returned to its
owner for final bordering, quilting and finishing.
The day group will make their first swap at the first meeting in May.
For information on Springhouse Quilters, contact Lois Scott, 463-2207.


Behind an Ivory Mask by Lady Marrie
Local Author Published

Frederick, MD April 18, 2008 -- PublishAmerica is proud to present Behind an
Ivory Mask by Lady Marrie of Cross City, Florida.
At the age of forty Lady Marrie decided to try out the internet world. "I became a
different person online simply because no one knew me," she said. "I became, as
my book will explain, Ivory Mask a woman full of mystery and intrigue. Thus the
name of my book, Behind an Ivory Mask. After ten years online and the loss of
my husband to cancer, I began writing to beat the depression. There were times
when my reality and my fantasy world collided. To help heal and find my way, I
wrote what I felt, but in words that everyone could understand. My book will re-
veal many journeys in time. From fantasy worlds to reality, I don't hold anything
back. You will laugh, cry, and agree to things I'm sure you thought no one else
could understand. Even when we feel no one listens, we are not alone."
Lady Marrie is fifty years old, a widow, mother and a grandmother. After the death
of her husband and many years on the internet; she began writing to heal herself.
She writes from her heart, laughing and crying.

DO YU NED HELTH NSURNCE?


Redneck Tech
by Eli Loy

A Firewall:

your perimeter

defense

Previously, we
discussed programs tP remove that pesky virus and spyware that is sure to get
into any computer connected to the Internet. This week we are going to learn how
to prevent many of those programs from infecting your computer in the first
place. Sounds fun, doesn't it?
The programs we will be using to achieve this end are collectively called firewalls.
A firewall is a program that sits between your programs and your Internet con-
nection. Anything on the Internet wanting access to your computer, and every-
thing on your computer wanting data from the Internet will have to pass through
the firewall program. For the money, (it's free for personal use), Zone Alarm is an
excellent choice. You can download a copy at www.ZoneAlarm.com.
Once the firewall is installed, Zone Alarm will start generating pop-up windows
in the right hand corner of your task bar whenever access to the Internet is at-
tempted. At first you will see programs you recognize and trust in these windows.
If it is a program you regularly use, and that you want to always have Internet
privileges, you may select the "Remember this setting" check box in the window
before clicking "Allow", after this, that particular program will no longer have to
ask permission to access the Internet. If it is a program that you are sure you do
NOT want accessing the Internet, you may select "Remember this setting" and
click "Deny". The first time you deny a program access, I recommend that you
don't select "Remember this setting". That way, if it turns out to be a program that
needs the Internet, you can just reboot the computer in order to restore its Inter-
net access.
Now, let's make one thing clear, this is an advanced program. You can disallow a
program's access to the Internet permanently, thereby potentially preventing it
from functioning properly If you happen to do this, (I.E. you selected "Remember
this setting" and then clicked "Deny" on a program you want to access the Inter-
net), you can change it back in the "program control" section of the Zone Alarm
program.
Now, let's recap. We now have a firewall (ZoneAlarm) to prevent unauthorized ac-
cess to our computer from www.zonealarm.com. We now also have an anti virus
(AVG Free) from free.grisoft.com, and anti spyware (Adaware, and Spybot Search
& Destroy) from www.lavasoft.com, and www.safer-networking.org, respectively.
With your firewall in place, and your other programs regularly updated, and run
on a regular basis, your should have all the tools you need to keep your computer
healthy and operating smoothly.
Be sure'to tune in again next week for another
informative issue of "Redneck Tech".

Alexander seeks re-election


To the residents of Dixie County, my name is Timothy W. (Tim) Alexander and I
would like to announce my intention to seek re-election as School Board Member
for District Two.
I am 40 years old, and my wife Brenda and I have one daughter Ashton, who is a
recent graduate from the Dixie County School System and is currently attending
Lake City Community College preparing for
the medical field. -s am


For over 18 years I have served the residents of
Dixie County as an EMT, Paramedic, Flight
Paramedic and currently have the priviege to
continue my career as Director of Dixie Coun-
ty Emergency Services.


A couple in a boat attempted to come into the run, right on top of the new mother.
Meeks waved them down, explaining the situation, and they were very polite and
understanding and slowly backed out of the spring area. "The locals are usually
very considerate," Meeks stated, "It's the out-of-towners, with their...well, with
their weekend drinking and partying who don't care."


The adult manatees in the spring showed multiple signs of that carelessness.
Nirvina, a large female who has
been frequenting Fanning
Springs for years, has a huge
chunk missing out of her tail
and propeller marks along her
right side. Each manatee is dis-
tinctive, unfortunately: they're
easy to identify because they're
each scarred from years of be- :;
ing hit by boaters. Not a single
manatee visible at Fanning
Springs was unmarked.


New human babies have a "soft
spot" or fontanel in their skulls
when they're small. Newborn
manatees are like that all over.
A new baby like the one in Fan-
ning Springs wouldn't have a
chance against the boats that fly
up and down the river on a weekend.

SNirvina's tail shows signs of previous run-ins with
boaters.


There were over 12 manatees in the Fanning Springs area on Thursday through
Saturday On Friday, Meeks had to chase down two speeding boats that almost ran
over the manatees. One was a pontoon boat, and the other was an older man on a
jet ski, who sped through the mouth of the run and was only five feet from hitting
a surfacing manatee.
So, please, if you're out enjoying the good weather we've been having on the river,
slow down and remember that babies may be sleeping nearby
