City Council

Highlights

By David Ryman
A full house of Councillors attended the latest meet-
ing of the Council of Cross City In attendance were
Atty Beauchamp, City Clerk, Manager, Superinten-
dent, Police Chief, and an audience of two residents.
The first item tackled was authority to purchase a
new tractor for duties in the water plant and spray
fields. Out of the 3 quotes obtained, the lowest overall
quote was accepted after considering warranties, pur-
chase price and delivery charges. The selected vehicle
was a John Deere. Although no mention was made of
the country of origin, it would seem prudent in these
turbulent economic times to support US companies
like Deere and Company rather than channel more
funds overseas.
City Hall has mailed out 20 letters concerning non-
payment of occupational licenses, which are required
for companies who conduct business within the city
limits, and has received 11 responses so far.

Suwannee River Jam 2008

n Saturday, April 26, the Dixie County Advocate went to the 2008
LUwannee River Jam at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park.
t 1:00 P.M. the gates opened and fans rushed into the concert area
carrying their folding chairs and vying for positions close to the
tars.

T he show opened with Sun Country, who's rendition of the Mar-
hall Tucker Band's "Fire on the Mountain" was nothing less
h an amazing. After Sun Country finished up James Otto took
S ver the stage.

r. Otto put on quite a show, he performed songs from his new hit
record "Sunset Man", and even sang Queen's "Fat Bottomed
irls", the crowd loved every minute of it. After his performance
ames Otto greeted his fans and graciusly signed autographs. Up

Hillary's still behind,
but still alive

I've never been to Pennsylvania, and somehow I get
the idea that Barack Obama never spent.much time
there either. Otherwise, he wouldn't have offered up
that elitist remark about how the people in that state
are all caught up in things like guns, going to church
and not liking people who are different from them.
Incidentally, that's what northern liberals used to
say about people who lived in the South. I guess
maybe Barack doesn't figure he needs us, either.
Granted, Barack said that when he was talking to a
bunch of effete snobs at a San Francisco cocktail par-
ty But was he so naive as to suppose there might not
be an undercover conservative lurking in the shad-
ows-a spy from Hillary's.vast, right-wing conspiracy
who would tell all those Bible and gun-totin' working
class bigots in Pennsylvania what he said?
Give Obama some credit, he's pretty good at waffling
his way out of a severe attack of foot-in-mouth syn-
drome. His 20 year association with Rev. Jeremiah
Wright hasn't done him nearly as much damage as
would be experienced by a conservative Republican
who attended just one rally held by David Duke 20
years ago.
Unfortunately, when you're meeting one-on-one with
persons in charge of governments (or significant
movements) on our country's terrorist list-as Oba-
ma has said he would do-you're putting a lot more
than your own credibility on the line. Besides, his
party doesn't need a sitting president to do what a
geriatric ex-president is already doing.
When Hillary Clinton makes a "misstatement," she
does it up right. Like the business about landing in
Bosnia under sniper fire that never happened. But at
least that's not a put-down to working class people in
Pennsylvania and, by implication, everywhere else.
With the primary season rapidly winding down,
there's not much chance that Hillary could come up
with a majority of the committed delegates, but the
so-called "Super Delegates" could still pull it off in
her favor if they could be convinced that it would be
a good idea.
These are people who qualify as VIP's in the party,
and while some have committed to a candidate al-
ready, they are not legally bound to follow through
when the votes are taken at the convention. If they
see a disaster looming in an Obama nomination, they
could decide to buck popular opinion and go with the
candidate who would have the best chance of beating
John McCain in November.
The downside of that move would be that overruling
Obama's popular victory would alienate his base, that
being blacks, idealistic young voters and the extreme
left wing of the party The only way Hillary could put
the coalition back together would be to persuade Oba-.
ma to run as her VP, and even that might not work. In
any event, he's not going to settle for second banana
after being swindled out of the top spot.
Thus, we have Hillary Clinton unlikely to win the
nomination on the up and up, and not likely to carry
the party's base in the general election if she gains it
otherwise. And then there's Barack Obama with an
increasing accumulation of negatives that aren't do-
ing him all that much damage in the primary, but
which would leave him vulnerable in a general elec-
tion.
Have you noticed that, in recent photos of John Mc-
Cain, he seems to be smiling a lot more than he used
to?

My Sad Story-

By: Robert E. Savitz
Dear world,

The worst decision I've ever made, came about eight
and half months ago with a vengeance. I never
thought my life would ever slip back into the gigantic
black hole it was sunken into six years ago, but I al-
ways destroy everything worth losing way before it dis-
appears from my possession. I left this letter behind in
hopes maybe it will help someone refrain from screw-
ing their life up like I've twisted mine into tiny bits and
pieces of broken memories that don't even matter any-
more. In half a month, my life will change for the bet-
ter, or most likely will become much worse than it has
been. Therefore depression surrounds me everywhere
I'm at, and even greets me whenever I decide to go
someplace different. I'm one of those people out here,
who never sees what they were supposed to achieve in
the short time span we call life! I won't get to have
most of the experiences the norm al human gets to en-
joy
You see, I chose the drug METHAMPHETAMINE!
Hopefully this is a new word for you. If so, you will be
safe from the evil that Lucifer so graciously gave me
back when I was just twenty years old. If you've expe-
rienced this demon and you are free from the bondage,
stay away from this poison! Most of the people that
use Ice (or Meth, it's the same)never seem to be able to
get away from the lifestyle of a tweaker. Once you've
been hooked or strung-out on this garbage your brain
won't ever function the same as it did before. That's
the reason people have about a ten percent chance of
quitting, because their brain won't tell them to stop
when certain receptors in their brain were disintegrat-
ed only after a total of three to five occasions that
they used ice. So, if you've never experimented with
methamphetamine, for your future family's sake, stay
away from it completely! If you have, then my explana-
tion of why my life is getting taken away by the state
will most likely sound familiar, or I promise that it.will
be as if someone's reading your palm is telling you
about what to get prepared for real soon.
After my introduction to meth when I was twenty, I
soon developed a sense of degradation and found my-
self doing stuff I'd never dreamed possible growing up
as a child. I've yet to meet someone that told me they
knew at age ten they wanted to someday grow up to be
a junkie and a thief! I wasn't using maybe just four or
six months, and I was a full blown criminal who'd rob
you blind if you blinked in my presence.
First part to the long story In less than a year's time
of using, I managed to rack up three separate felonies
and was facing over a decade in prison time all because
I made a bad choice at age twenty! I ended up getting
one year in jail, with eighteen months probation upon
my release. I was spared by the criminal justice sys-
tem and the District Attorney and given a chance to try
a normal life on the outside of penitentiary walls as a
rehabilitated drug addict. I'm guessing my year stretch
in the slammer taught me to stay away from the evil
meth for almost four years, because I didn't use once
when I got released and told myself I never would use
meth again as long as I breathed air on this green


to KEEP. All of it. You would never again have to
keep a receipt "for taxes." It replaces the IRS with a
23% inclusive sales tax. The inclusive thing is a bit
tricky: it doesn't ad $23 to the price of a $100 DVD
player, it is $23 built INTO the price of the $100 DVD
player. We're already paying that much now, as con-
sumers, to compensate for all of the time and money
businesses spend complying with and trying to get
around the IRS. There is no getting around the Fair-
Tax. Everyone will pay it. Rich people, poor people,
churches, lawyers, even the government will pay it.
No exemptions. No special treatment
for special interest groups will exist.
The FairTax will stop the government
from trying to manipulate the citizen-
ry with tax perks. They will have to
try to encourage marriage, ethanol
production, and large home mortgages
some other way. It returns the power
to citizens: where it was supposed to
be, all along.

The economic implications of passing
such an act are amazing. Can you imagine how much
money will be freed up for businesses who no longer
have to spend 30% of their time worrying about the
tax man? Can you estimate the amount of money that
will be brought back from overseas tax shelters almost
overnight? Can you imagine the relief of family busi-
nesses when they realize that they don't have to sell
the farm to pay the death tax? Things are so bad right
now for the American economy; the FairTax might
just be the shaking up that we need. Remember this is
an election cycle year and we have more voice now
than ever. Ask your candidates where they stand on
fair taxation. You can read more about it at wwwfair-
tax.org. Oh, yeah, and try the fried pickles. You'll like
'em.


earth. To me, in my opinion staying completely meth
free for early fouryears is a good-thing after being a
junkie, and seeing none of your peers you ran with in
the past able to qui t for even one month.
People don't ever see those achievements, even being
meth free that long, when they catch you high again
like the old days. You can lose four years of trust and
respect faster than the amount of time it takes you to
put that pipe to your lips and relapse, and trust me
that's fast. I decided maybe after 'all that time clean I
was ready to try and see if smoking a little speed
(meth) could still afflict me with so much addictiveness
after abstaining from it so long. Well that's the rest of
this long and boring testimony to.you, and hopefully a
lesson comes to the lucky reader! Trying meth just one
time after four years ruined everything I worked hard
to get back in my life, from my previous meth addic-
tion!
After relapsing once, I began using every day and
soon lost my job that I'd kept for so long. As if that
wasn't bad enough, one of my so called friends left an
empty bag in the passenger side door pocket that the
state police found and charged me with meth posses-
sion for my third time! I'm not going to blame this per-
son for the simple reason that it is my fault that I start-
ed using again! Being my third felony charge, I'm fac-
ing a possible nine and a half years in prison if con-
victed. Did I mention my son is barely seven months
old? Hopefully I've been helpful to someone, listen to
my warnings! Don't mess with meth, or you will suffer
like me.
Thanks
Robert wrote this approximately 6 weeks
before he committed suicide.



Thank You
Oh, what a difference a day makes! United Christian
Services was closed for three'weeks after Christmas
and re-opened at the end of January

These fine folks started with wall-to-wall bareness and
empty shelve. Once again, the fine people of Dixie
County have stepped forward and replenished the
building. Donations of food, clothing, and money have
been given by many people to help those less fortunate
than themselves.

Businesses, churches, and many individuals have
made this program successful again. Clothing of all
sizes, household goodies, bread and pastries, and fruits
an vegetables are all back.

Add to those items smiling, friendly Christianvolun-
teers and we have the complete package that the pro-
gram strives for.

This is a public thank you, and if any of you get the
chance, stop by and thank these fine people for their
public service.

May God Bless You,

Fried pickles. That's what
S^ started me thinking. Well,
actually, Doug and I had gone
to Huckleberry's for our Sun-
day the-ex-has-the-kids-so-we-can-eat-out-in-peace day.
My favorite thing at Huckleberry's is the fried pickles,
dipped in ranch dressing. OK, I know it sounds weird.
Trust me, try it. (No, this is not a paid advertisement,
Huckleberry's doesn't run ads with us. Hey, Mike!
Why don't you run ads with us?
Call me!) Anyhoo, spray-painted
on the side of the bar-b-que build-
ing was a "FAIR TAX" sign. I kept '
looking at it while I was waiting on
my pickles.
, "' , 4 ; . ', ' *
What exactly does Fair Tasq mean? .
I wasn't sure, really. I've heard
Neal Boortz mention it on his show |. ,
a few times, and I'd seen the little
yard signs that seem to be popping
up everywhere, but I honestly didn't know enough
about it to compose a logical thought. So I loaded up
and went to the Cross City library where I seem to
spend so much of my free time lately, and picked up a
copy of "FairTax: The Truth" by Neal Boortz and Con-
gressman John Linder. I also did a bit of googling.

It is a revolutionary idea. The FairTax Act (HR 25 S
1025) is a complete re-thinking of our tax collection
system. It totally abolishes the IRS, annual federal tax
forms, the payroll tax (you know, that gigantic chunk
of your paycheck you never see because of 'Medicare
and Social Security), the estate tax, the alternative
minimum tax, and all of that record-keeping, receipt
collecting, and the constant search for tax write-offs.
That's the revolutionary thing: what you earn, you get

Post 383 to host


open house

American Legion Post 383, Old Town, located at 397 NE
82nd Avenue, will be hosting an open house on Satur-
day, May 3, from 11:00 A.M. until 2:00 P.M. In conjunc-
tion with the Sons of the American Legion and the
American Legion Auxiliary, they will inform the resi-
dents of the community of the aims and purposes of
the organization. Complimentary hot dogs, hamburg-
ers, and soft drinks will be served. The Auxiliary will
also be holding a yard and bake sale starting at 9:00
A.M.

The Legion and the Auxiliary each have a program
called Boys State / Girls State in which juniors in high
school are interviewed to be eligible to participate in a
week long program conducted at the Florida State Uni-
versity in Tallahassee. There they learn how our gov-
ernment is run at the local and state level. It is a week
of intense learning and hands-on participation. They
hold sessions in the state capitol building and meet
with state senators, representatives and members of
the state judiciary. All these activities are closely moni-
tored and the Florida Highway Patrol provides the se-
curity of their dorms. Except for any personal expendi-
tures, all expenses and transportation are paid by the
American Legion and the American Legion Auxiliary

The Sons of the American Legion are also active in
supporting local and state activities such as the Boy
Scouts of America and helping to fund the Boys State
Scholarships.

All tree parts of the legion family participate in pro-
grams aimed at helping veterans and their families, the
children of our communities helping at schools, and
reaching out to educate our youth on Americanism.

We welcome everyone to our open house to learn more
about our programs.

For God and country,
Paul Sommer, Past Commander Post 383

matter is pursued through the legal system.
A mysterious underground structure was discovered
around 25th April. Located next to the Greenway near
DQ on a tiangular piece of land, is a barrier with MAS-
TEC painted on it, under which is a manhole opening
and a 10 foot drop into the unknown structure. It ap-
pears to belong to BellSoitth, or AT&T as it is now, and
Mastec, a construction partner to the telecom industry
have been contacted but, as of this writing, nothing has
been done to re-cover the hole to protect residents and
visitors from the danger it presents. City workers re-
frained from investigating further as water is present
and no-one seems to know whether the cables down
there are live or not, or where the cover went.
Good news for both the City and the County The Sen-
ate in Tallahasse signed off on two state tunes Thurs-
day 24th April, naming "Old Folks at Home" the state
song and "Florida, Where the Sawgrass Meets the Sky"
the state anthem. Perhaps we can petition for "Florida,
My Florida" to be the state ditty
On the suggestion of Councillor Gooding, the 2nd
Council meeting of each month will now take place in
the evening starting at 7PM instead of 2:30PM. On fur-
ther discussion it was decided that the Council will re-
vert to having a single meeting each month at which it
will then be decided whether a second meeting would
be of benefit. The next meeting will be the normally
scheduled one on 5th May, with the 26th May meeting
cancelled, unless they decide otherwise on the 5th.
Concideration is being given to installing further traf-
fic calming measures, in the guise of 3 or 4-way stop
signs at selected road junctions. It has been decided
that the City can undertake this work without needing
the cooperation of the DOT or any other government
body, so the cost will be kept to a-minimum. The only
issue is where to introduce these measures. If you have
any suggestions as to where this signage would be valu-
able and effective, then let the council know at the next
meeting.
The Police Chief pointed out-that the legal speed limit
on city streets with no posted speed limit sign is
30mph. In order to introduce an enforcable limit lower
than 30mph requires undertaking a traffic study and
submittal to DOT for there approval or not, as was the
case with the 20mph zone north along 351,
Although the currently underway annexation of a few
more residents and the water plant spray field will af-
fect the city's area, it will not affect the population by
much. Councillor Gooding raised an interesting point,
that being, once the City's resident population exceeds
5,000, then State law requires that the Planning and
Zoning board must be separate to the City Council, cur-
rently they are one and the same. It appears we are
1,700 away from that mark now, but each pek we get
closer, it will soon be time to investigate 'at other op-
erational and organizational changes will need to be
made to take Cross City to the next level.

.... lighter note
So far we have lighter note
learned many of
the ways that the Internet can cause your head to hurt. We have also, hopefully,
learned some ways to prevent that from happening. So, if the Internet can cause
your computer to break, why would you even want it? One answer is all free (or
cheap) stuff! Of course, not all of the Internet's wealth of services are free (or
even cheap), but, this week we will look into some of the free things that the Inter-
net can provide you with.
The Internet is sometimes referred to as the information super-highway. That is a
very accurate moniker for it. Much of the information you can find on the Inter-
net can be (gasp!) misleading, inaccurate, wrong, and quite often disgusting. So,
you'll have to be careful what you search for, and where. You'd also be wise to
check more than one source when doing your research. One of my personal fa-
vorite sources for information of the factual nature is wikipedia.org
(www.wikipedia.org). It is a free encyclopedia maintained by Internet users touted
as "The Peoples Encyclopedia." As I said, it is compiled and often corrected by the
actual people who are reading it. You can even change entries, and add informa-
tion yourself. It does (as does everything) have a few errors, but these tend to be
corrected promptly, and is, in general, a reliable source for information. Wikipedia
is available in several languages.

Looking for useful programs? Now, let's get one thing straight. Lots of programs
that you can download from the Internet are copyrighted material. Downloading
them without the author's consent is illegal. You CAN find free downloads of soft-
ware, (games, music, utilities, etc.) that you are supposed to pay for, but that are
broadcast over the Internet by persons known as "pirates". By downloading pro-
grams of this nature you are, in fact, stealing. Internet crime ig rampant, due to
the fact that you can get valuable merchandise for free, simply by clicking your
mouse from the comfort of your chair. No gun/mask required.
Chin up, dear reader! Many of those programs that you are itching to obtain have
a free counterpart that will burden neither your bank account nor your con-
science. These programs are know as freeware. Here's a wonderful example, I
typed "buy Adobe Photoshop" into Google, among the results returned were
"Adobe Photoshop CS3 for Windows $563.20 from RoyalDiscount.com." Yikes! That
much-sought-after program could set ya' back a little. Well instead of stealing it,
(yes it can be done), you could just use "The GIMP" (GNU Image Manipulation
Program) which is found at www.gimp.org. It works well with windows, does much
the same thing as Photoshop, and on top of all that the price tag reads $0.00! As I
mentioned in a previous article, sometimes programs are free just because the au-
thor(s) are honestly good people. Gimp.org also has several help files to help you
get it up and running (it is a bit harder to install than Photoshop, but I have faith
in you).
If your computer use is more business oriented, you may find that you'll need
spreadsheet programs, text editors, etc. in order to get the most out of your sys-
tem. OpenOffice.org (OpenOffice.org) might be right up your alley (I'm using it to
type this), A full suite of office programs that is comparable to such suites as the
more familiar Microsoft Office. According to OpenOffice.org's mission statement
their goal is: "To create, as a community, the leading international office suite that
will run on all major platforms and provide access to all functionality and data
through open-component based APIs and an XML-based file format." (I found that
on wikipedia). It's components are as follows: Writer: a word processor similar to
Microsoft Word, Calc: ba spreadsheet similar to Microsoft Excel, Impress: a-presen-
tation program comparable to Microsoft's PowerPoint, Base: a database like Mi-
crosoft Access, Draw (I'll let you guess what that does), and Math: a tool for creat-
ing and editing mathematical formulae, similar to Microsoft Equation Editor. To-
tal price $0.00. Just to see if I could find Microsoft Office at a comparable price, I
typed "Buy Microsoft Office" into the ever-useful Google. Returned to me was
"Microsoft Office 2007 Basic OEM $197.99" once again from RoyalDiscount.com. I
think OpenOffice.org won me over in the pricing portion of the contest.
Well, that's all for now. So remember, fellow users of the Internet, keep reading.
the Dixie County Advocate, and we'll help you keep your computers (and your
noses) clean.


From Dyals, page one
and Marion Barber McK-
inney, who has also been
employed with Dixie
County in the Clerk of
Circuit Court, Tax Collec
tor and with the Dixie
County School Board.
My grandparents are the
late Warren and Olive
Barber, who both served
Dixie County as County
Commissioner and Coun-
ty Clerk.

I am married to Al Dyals,
son of the late Sheriff
Glen Dyals and Georgia
Lea Dyals. Together we
have four children: buddy
Dyals, Micalea Prigeon,
Jordan and Morgam
Philmon and three grand-
children. I am an active
member of New Prospect
Baptist Church and a
member of the Dixie
County FFA Alumni. I
am also a commissioned
Florida Notary Public.
My career in the Dixie
County Tax Collecto's of-
fice began in 1983 under
the Honorable Grady


Hires during my senior
year of high school. Af-
ter graduation from
DCHS in 1984,1 I worked
under the Honorable
Idelle Hatcher until 1985,
. when the position I held
for two years was cut due
to county budget cuts.
From 1985-1988, my ca-
reer continued to serve
the public at the Sears
Catalog Store, JM McKin-
ney, Jr.'s real estate office
and PRIDE of Florida at
Union Correctional. In
1989 I1 began working
with the Department of
Health and Rehabilitative
Services and continued
there until the birth of
my children in 1992 and
1994 at which time I re-
signed to be a stay at
home mom with my chil-
dren. In 1998 when my
son Jordan started
kindergarten I went to
school with him as a sub-
stitute teacher and con-
tinued there until 2001
when I went to work at
the Advocate under Sid-
ney Dosh. In 2002 with
both my children settled
well in school, my career


took me back to the Tax
Collector's office under
Hon. Joyce H. Davis
where I am currently em-
ployed. This gives me a
total of 25 years of public
service, 10 of those years
in the Tax Collector's of-
fice. I have held the titles
of Hunting/Fishing Su-
pervisor, Tag and Title
Supervisor, and am cur-
rently employed in the
Property tax department.

I feel my experience and
knowledge of the Dixie
County Tax Collector's of-
fice will be an asset to the
county Over the next few
months, I look forward to
meeting and speaking
with as many residents
as possible. If I do not ac-
complish this task, I urge
you to take a look at my
experience and qualifica-
tions and take me, Joy
Dyals, into consideration
as your next Tax Collec-
tor. Please feel free to
contact me anytime after
5:00 PM at 352-498-3034 if I
can answer any questions
you may have.
Thank you!

From Johnson, page one

I am an active member of New Prospect Baptist
Church where I serve as Church Clerk. I love Dixie
County history and genealogy which led me to be-
come an active member of the Dixie County Histori-
cal Society in 1992 where I have served as secretary
since 1996. I currently serve on the Board of Direc-
tors for the Dixie County Chamber of Commerce and
chair the Student Guest committee for the Dixie
County Rotary Club.

I was elected to the office of Clerk of Courts in No-
vember 2006 and I have 17 years of previous experi-
ence in the Clerk's office. I am working toward the
required 240 hours to be a certified Clerk of the Cir-
cuit and County Courts. I have hands-on knowledge of
all areas of the office including official records, small
claims court, circuit and county criminal courts, traf-
fic infractions, child support, bookkeeping, tax deed
and foreclosure sales, preparation of county commis-
sion minutes, county payroll, accounts payable and
county budgets. I have been selected to serve on the
Services Group Committee for the Florida Associa-
tion of Court Clerks. This is a state wide seven mem-
ber board that oversees the function of all Clerks of
Court.

My experience as your Clerk of Court includes the
continuation of clerk training and each deputy clerk
has had the opportunity to attend training to further
their ability to be dross trained in each department. I
have a user-friendly website that is kept up-to-date
and I use the latest computer software that allows ac-
cess to our public records, our latest court informa-
tion, tax deed and foreclosure sale information. The
website also includes historical records such as
deeds, marriage licenses, civil and criminal indexes.
I strive to keep Dixie County at the forefront of new
laws and legislation that affects our every day lives.
Please allow the knowledge I've gained over the last
17 years as a deputy clerk and the last year and a half
as your Clerk to continue to serve you.

The Clerk's office is open Monday through Friday
from 8:30 am until 5:30 pm. Thanks to the Dixie
County Board of County Commissioners and County
Manager Arthur Bellot the Clerk's office has four lo-
cations in the Dixie County Courthouse. Our main
office handles recording of official records, probate
matters, child support and family court. The office
directly across the hall from the main office takes

from Driggers, .page one

Working in a business serving the public, with my fa-
ther, for 17 years, and subsequently becoming a self-
employed businessman has given me the ability to
manage a budget, adapt to budget cuts and today's
precarious economy. My mother's 18 years' experi-
ence as a teacher in Dixie County Schools has afford-
ed me a close perspective on our students' needs.

After having graduated from Dixie County High
School, I attended Lake City Community College
where I received an Associate of Arts degree, and
went on to attain a Bachelor's degree in criminology
from St. Leo University

The constant advances in my business of automobile
technology have taught me flexibility to keep up with
the changes-an asset I can readily apply to the ever-
changing education requirements of our young peo-
ple in today's fast-paced society

Family-oriented community organizations are essen-
tial auxiliary components of our children's educa-
tion, and I am honored to be president of the Dixie
Horseman 'Association; aclub whichencourages ed-
ucation by awarding scholarships to its high school
senior members. In addition, I have been involved in
the Dixie FFA Alumni for 13 years, and am active in
the Dixie County Historical Society

My wife, Cassie Johnson Driggers, and I have two
children, Grant and Rilee. Grant attends Anderson
Elementary School, and both children are involved in
the Dixie Horseman's Association.

Our Dixie County young people deserve the very best
from our school system so they can succeed in the
world and, in turn, contribute to Dixie County's fu-
ture. I feel sure I can make a positive contribution to
our school system, and am prepared to give my all to
help our students; your support and vote will give me
the chance to accomplish these goals.

Feel free to call me at 352-498-2783; I am always avail-
able to discuss your concerns that affect the lives of
our children.

. I have eight years of work experience at the Dixie
! County Tax Collector's Office. I began my service
with Mrs. Idelle Hatcher and continued working for
Mrs. Joyce Davis until 2004. At that time, I made a
* decision to stay at home with my small children.
While I was employed by the Tax Collector's office, I
worked in all areas of the office. I was the Tag and
Title Supervisor as well as Supervisor of the Old
Town Branch Office. I also attended many training
and courses offered by the Florida Department of Mo-
tor Vehicles and the Florida Department of Revenue.
This enabled me to further my education and knowl-
edge of the duties and responsibilities of the Tax Col-
lector's Office.

During my service, I feel I gained the valuable experi-
ence needed in order to manage and operate the Tax
Collector's Office in an efficient and professional
manner. Now, I humbly ask that you consider my ex-
perience and qualifications and elect me, Michelle
Fowler Cannon, to serve as your next Tax Collector. I

From Lamb, page one

She is currently employed as Business Office Manag-
er at Cross City Rehabilitation and Healthcare. We
have two children, jimmy and Ashley, both are gradu-
ates of DCHS and we are the proud grandparents of
three grandchildren. Doreen and I are both members
of Rock Sink Baptist Church. I am a member of Jop-
pa Lodge #4, F&AM.

After election to the Board of County Commission-
ers, I immediately enrolled in a voluntary program
offered by the Florida Association of Counties. This
college-type program has better prepared me to serve
the citizens of Dixie County by becoming more
knowledgeable of the duties and responsibilities of a
County Commissioner. I was one of only two Com-
missioners from Dixie County to ever complete the
course. In 2006, I completed the Advanced County
Commissioner Education Program; an advanced lead-
ership program designed for graduates of the Certi-
fied County Commission Program. Only 26 Commis-
sioners from the entire state have received this desig-
nation. I continue to attend numerous workshops
and seminars to keep me abreast of continuously
changing State and Federal regulations that affect
Dixie County and the State of Florida.

I currently represent Dixie County as a Board mem-
ber and serve on the Executive Committee of the
Suwannee River Economic Council. I also represent
Dixie County on the program committee of the North
Florida Regional Planning Council and as a Director
and a member of the Executive Committee of the
North Central Florida Rural Areas of Critical Eco-
nomic Concern. I serve on numerous committees in
the Florida Association of Counties. I am Chairman
Elect of the Small County Coalition which represents
and lobbies for the interest of small counties in the
state. I serve on the steering committee of Central
Florida Community College, which is in the process
of bringing a campus to the Tri-County area.

Active participation in these different organizations
allows me to be more knowledgeable in what is avail-
able or what is becoming available that Dixie County
can utilize as Grants, Land Acquisitions, Healthcare
and Educational Opportunities. This active partici-
pation also keeps me abreast of any adverse legisla-
tion that could be harmful to our county such as our
water rights, limiting our hunting and fishing rights,
and protection of our natural resources we have long
enjoyed.

During my tenure, I have acquired excellent relation-
ships,-with Legislators who directly represent Dixie
County at the State and'Federal levels. I accom-
plished the construction of an ambulance station in
the First District, a new boat ramp and park at Turn-
er Point Landing, grant approval for a new boat ramp
reconstruction on CR 340, construction of new re-
strooms at Gornto Springs, and the resurfacing of
County Roads 351U, 351A, 353, Forest Park Hills Road,
Gornto Springs Road, and the current resurfacing
and widening of Spillers Highway. These road and
park projects were accomplished with Board support
and I will continue to support projects throughout the
entire county.

Most recently, I helped to secure a grant for a Senior
Center to be constructed in Dixie County through my
post on the Suwannee River Economic Council. Con-
struction is to begin by the end of this year. I also
helped to obtain a Certificate of Need for a 60-bed
hospital to be built in the Tri County Area. This hos-
pital will play an important role in reducing the cost
to our individual citizens as well as cost savings to
our EMS services in fuel and travel in obtaining ma-
jor healthcare. Groundbreaking is projected for Octo-
ber or November 2008.

'I have been a full time Commissioner, working a pub-
lic job only three and a half months in the last six
years. I have devoted my full time and attention to
the betterment of this County. If yoi will support me
in my re-election bid, I will continue to represent Dix-
ie County with the same honor, integrity and enthusi-
asm as I have for the previous eight years. As always,
I will listen to anyone's issues or concerns and an-
swer any questions. Feel free to cal my home at 542-
9353. Thank you, Buddy

Words of Wisdom for an Election Year
(Thanks, Ben!)

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

You cannot strengthen the weak by
weakening the strong.

You cannot bring about prosperity
by discouraging thrift.

You cannot lift the wage earner up by
S pulling the wage payer down.

You cannot further the brotherhood of man
by inciting class hatred.

You cannot build character and courage
by taking away men's initiative and independence.

You cannot help men permanently by
doing for them, what they could and should do for
themselves.

From Wright, page one
I now reside in Old Town with my husband and son.
I am the daughter of John and Linda Dyals, I have
two brothers and four sisters.

I am a graduate of Dixie County High School where I
participated in the Co-Op program which allowed me
to work part time at the Tax Collector's Office. Upon
completing High School, I was hired full time as a
Tag and Title Clerk and eventually became the Tag
and Title Supervisor. I then began to work in the
property tax department and assisted with the daily
processing of tax payments as well as the procedures
and requirements set forth by Florida Statute.

I attended a real estate class at Santa Fe Community
College which provided me a better understanding of
deeds, legal descriptions and other items pertaining
to real estate. I became eligible for and passed the
state exam to become a Licensed Sales Associate, al-
though I have not pursued a career in that field. I
have also expanded my education through attending
classes offered by the Department of Revenue. I've
since earned the certification of a Certified Florida
Collector's Assistant. I am currently employed as the
Assistant Tax Collector for the Dixie County Tax Col-
lector's Office.

I have been given the opportunity to work closely
with budget matters and the general operation of the
office and have a firm grasp on the expectations and
responsibilities of this position. I am confident that
my experience and knowledge of this office would en-
able me to serve as your Tax Collector.

I offer the people of Dixie County my word that I will
be available as an elected public servant, to conduct
myself with honesty and integrity, always keeping
your best interest at heart. I will be out in the com-
munity to meet with as many of you as possible to
discuss my intentions and any concerns or sugges-
tions you may have. I would like to extend an invita-
tion for you to give me a call at 352-542-1256. Please
leave a message if you reach my answering machine
and I will return your call as soon as possible. I look
forward to speaking with each of you.
It would be my honor and privilege to serve as your
Tax Collector. I would like to ask for your support
and express my sincere gratitude for your considera-
tion.

The Dixie County Cultural Center was buzzing with
excitement on Friday, April 25, 2008. The walking
field trip of the fifth grade classes from Old Town Ele-
mentary School was the cause for all the excitement.
Mrs. Gail Rains coordinated the effort to have the stu-
dents visit our facility. The first group arrived at
10:00 AM, with the other groups following at different
intervals of time. All students got to stop and read
the Historical Marker
on the grounds, see the 7.

then on inside for their . rn,
tour of'the auditorium, h
museum, and the ge-
nealogy room. Iw4

The museum was a top
priority Students were
very interested in the I
items that they were
able to view and they
were getting a history lesson as well. The volunteers
from the membership of the Dixie County
Historical Society were there to answer the students
questions and listen to their comments. We heard
them say things like "This is awesome!' and "This is'
some neat stuff" and "How was this used?" They got
to see arrow heads,
handmade cow bells, pic-
tures that some of them
-\ir had taken as an assign-
V'. ~ ment over
4 J spring break, irons be-
fore electricity, a replica

fHawkinsville", old news-
papers from 1945, old
I books, Putnam Lumber
Co. items, items from
Cheek Drug Co. from
years gone by and items
of interest from the Wars that are part of our history

The students visited the genealogy room where they
were given some information about starting their
own Family Tree. We hope that they will join with us
in preserving their heritage and our history. It was a
very exciting day for all of us.

We want to say
'Thank You" to all the
students and teachers
who came~6 VisitV We - -

most fascinating
family of animals in -
a live program pre- ~ . . - 1
sented by Bruce __
Shwedick. Since ...
1974, Bruce has -
shared his fascina-

forgettable look at
the world of rep- -
tiles.

The Reptile Discov-
ery program provides an opportunity for our children
to meet, learn about and enjoy members of the rep-
tile family from all over the world. Their natural his-
tory, geography and conservation are presented in a
manner that students can enjoy and understand. The
importance of reptiles in nature is emphasized and
their impact on the lives of people was discussed. The

We praise God for all His wonderful blessings during
the past week! Once again, it was great to be in
church Sunday, listening to our choir and musicians
as they blessed us with worship in song, and Bro. Bil-
ly as he brought a very timely and stirring message
from Acts 16:25. We were pleased to have visitors,
and always look forward to having you with us.

On Friday, May 2nd, our annual Men's Rally will be
held at Pickett Lake, beginning at 6:00 P. M. We are
looking forward to our 108th Homecoming at NPBC
on Sunday, May 4th, complete with "dinner on the
ground." On Friday and Saturday, May 9th and 10th,
the American Cancer Society's "Relay For Life" will
begin at Old Town Elementary School, 6:00 P. M.

Have a good week and, as always, please keep all
those on the prayer lists in your prayers, and remem-
ber that you're always welcome at New Prospect for a
visit or a lifetime! May God bless and keep you safe.


FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF
STEINHATCHEE
We were blessed to hear little Bradlyn Chastine
singing her first solo for GOD'S glory! She sang "I feel
Like Traveling On". Also we were blessed again to
have Harry Gatlin playing his guitar for us in our
church services and also during our choir practices.
He sure is an addition to our music program! Harry
and Leon Holden sang, "I Saw the Light". With Leon
playing that piano and Harry strumming that guitar
we felt like we were "glory bound" for sure!

The Ladies meeting for May 3rd has been postponed!
The new date will be announced.Our prayers go out
the the Arthur Southerland family in the loss of, his
precious wife, Bob Puckett, the unspoken request
mentioned Sunday, the Jim Chesser family, Billy
Blakely serving in Iraq, Rachel Henley( Mrs. Fred-
Tdie's grand-daughter) and all our visitors that we saw
on Sunday.. may they never let today's burden erase
yesterday's blessing! Thank you for blessing our day
with your visit!

Come hear Stephanie Leavins on Sunday night, May
18, at 6:00 P M. She will be sharing her talent, that the
LORD has given her! Oh, what a glorious day we
shared with the folks at Charity Baptist at Perry, last
Saturday We heard the gospel group, "Crimson Flow"
singing and praising the LORD, as they always do!!
Pastor Jon Edmisten and Jenn has enlarged their
house by "two feet", a few weeks ago they were-
blessed with a son, Gabriel Titus Edmisten! Congrat-
ulations to all of you!

Last, but certainly not least, Brad Paisley stepped onto AA
the stage as the crowd went positively ballistic. Folks of
all ages were straining to get closer to the stage. People. .

An amazing show it was. The big stars were great, and
the park staff was friendly and helpful. I certainly look
forward to the next show.
