tation & Health Center

ried out by the staff.

Again".

The 2
Floridas?

The North Lauderdale,
FL City Commission
wasnts Florida to be di-
vided into two different
states: North Florida
and South Florida.

North Lauderdale Com-
missioner Rich Moyle
claims that the resolu-
tion is based on lrustra-
tion due to the state Leg-
islature ignoring cities
in South Florida.

They reckon the bound-
ary line to run from
Palm Beach County
through Monroe County.

Moyle doesn't think the
idea stands a snowball's
chance in Florida. How-
ever, he may have failed
to realize that we might
want to get rid of them
too.


Bears visit former coach


elled to Mariana, FL on Tuesday April 29, to visit with
former Bears Head Football Coach Al Parris. Coach
Parris was one of four residents being honored bby the
rehabilitation center where he is currently staying.
The former Bears' players and manager making the
trip were standing from left to right: Jerry Karr, Tom-
my Hamilton, Steve Hardman, Randy Corbin, Louis
Overstreet, and Mike McCaskill. Coach Al Parris and
Tommy Cooper are seated in front. The entire group
enjoyed the evening of rememberances. The old plays
and results were vivid as if they had just "recently" oc-
cured. Coach Parris and his family were very happy
that the former Bears were able to make the trip.


Commission Highlights
By David Ryman
(In May 1, the Board's attention was drawn to "Brownfield" grants made avail-
able by both Federal and State Government to provide funds to clean up sites
that can then be turned to productive use again. Two categories are defined, being
petroleum and non-petroleum clean up. The board and its entourage could list at
least 3 unused gas stations in Cross City and Old Town that could benefit. On the
same day, ExxonMobil announced an $11 billion 2008 first quarter profit. Exxon-
Mobil is a direct descendent of Rockefeller's Standard Oil, which is responsible for
replacing our dependence on whale oil with a dependence on fossil fuels. We now
find ourselves paying too much for our fuel of choice and seeking another alterna-
tive 'whilst we continue to clean up the residual mess of our current addiction
without the assistance of our supplier.

The new Suwannee water plant is online and, apart from a checklist of items to be
completed, is finished, marking the end of a project that started in 2001. It is said
that Rome was not built in a day, well neither is Dixie County's infrastructure and,
step by step we are getting there. The $9m Shired Island Highway is now on the
Commission's radar.

Solid waste management, charged with the task of mosquito control, are trying a
new chemical which appears to be as effective as the previous mixture but without
the smell, although recent cooler weather may also have had an effect. Direct any
comments to Joe Ruth as a decision on which will be used in the future will be
made soon.

Black Bear Spotted


On Horseshoe


Highway

heila Mays, her husband and three children were
on their way home from a fishing trip at Horse-
shoe and spotted this big black bear crossing
Horseshoe Highway on Sunday

Highways often pass through bear habitat, and bears
cross the roads while searching for food or mates. Ve-
hicle collisions with bears have increased since 1976,
due to increased traffic and increased numbers of
bears. In 2006, over 136 bear-car collisions were
recorded, almost always involving the total destruc-
tion of the vehicle. The southern tip of Dixie County '
is a secondary range for the black bear, so drive 0 -
slowly when travelling in wooded areas.


Family Center

Groundbreaking


Handicapped Fishing Weekend
at Shired Island


Jake Cravey, Pastor of Bethel
Baptist Church in Trenton,
Florida officiates at the
ground breaking ceremony for
a 10,000 square foot Family Life
Center. The building will be
constructed directly behind the
existing Church building on 9
acres purchased in 1991.


The construction of this build-
ing became possible as a result of a-donation from Mr. and Mrs. Spurgeon Cheek.
' The Family Life Center will contain a full size basketball court, classrooms, and a
large food preparation area. The AWANA program at Bethel has grown to such an
extent that this space was needed to accommodate all the children on Wednesday
nights.

Becoming aware of gas prices

Obviously, I am not talking about working
class consumers when I mention "becoming aware"
in terms of gasoline (and diesel) prices. Those of us
who rely on the stuff for getting to work, to school, to
the supermarket and other such routine necessities
have been aware of this problem at least since the
OPEC ripoff began back in.the 1970s. The apparent
sudden awareness of which I speak has to do with
politicians.
At the present time, we have four significant
candidates remaining in the presidential race. Sena-
tor John McCain has emerged as the presumed Re-
publican candidate, while Democratic Senators
Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama
continue to slug it out for their party's nomination. I
will also continue to consider Ralph Nader a serious
candidate until such time as someone can convince
me that he had nothing to do with the outcome of the
2000 presidential election.
Senator McCain wants to suspend the federal
gas tax for the summer. That sounds pretty good, ex-
cept that it would be a fiscal "Band-aid" on a econom-
ic compound fracture. Another problem is that it
seems to assume that gas prices will subside after the
summer season as they have in years past. Unfortu-
nately, that is not what's driving the price of petrol at
the present time.
Senator Clinton wants to sock the oil compa-
nies with what might be termed an "excess profits"
tax. Sure, the oil companies are making big bucks,
but as a percentage of sales their profit margin isn't
really out of line. It's just that they sell a lot of their
product and the demand is increasing all the time. It's
the OPEC cartel that controls the supply and thereby
the price.
What additional taxation would do is give
more money to the federal government. Need Imen-
tion that this is not the same as putting more money
in the pockets of working class taxpayers? Think
about it: What does a business-any business, not just
the oil companies--do when it incurs an additional
expense, be it a tax or anything else? It passes that
cost along to the consumer.
If Senator Obama has a solution to the prob-
lem, I expect it must be hidden somewhere in the
amorphous concept of "change" with which he has
enamored millions during this campaign. Can't say
that I blame him; after all, if you can sell an idea
without telling anybody what it is, why not do it?
Ralph Nader hasn't said what his solution to
high gas prices would be. For that matter, I'm not
sure what ticket he'll be running on. I would imagine
that he would prefer that we all ride bicycles, though
I don't know if he even owns one. Don't get me
wrong, I like bicycles, but they do become a little in-
convenient when applied to a 50 mile trip on a rainy
day.
President Bush has an idea of his own. He has
authorized several hundred dollars to each taxpayer
(even those who don't pay taxes, as long as they file).
This is designed to give the sagging economy a shot
in the arm; but since oil prices are a large part of
what's causing the economy to sag, I expect it should
apply In any event, it's nothing that will create an
economic recovery or get the price of gas back to the
realm of reality.
I understand that, because my Social Security
number ends in 97,1 I won't get mine till July But
that's all right; the way things are going, I'll need it
more by then anyway.

People say that all the time, I know, but it doesn't hit

leaves this big gaping place that is forever void.

My mother and I never got along, I was too hard-head-

so, she was my mama and she put up with my disdain
and my teenage selfishness and antics and she loved
me and taught me the stuff that she knew. She's been
dead now for almost ten years, and I still catch myself
thinking that I need to ask her how to make her bis-
cuits, or to find out the name of that Indiana cousin I
used to play with. Lots of unfinished business. And
yes, a certain amount of guilt.


A Big


Thank You

We just wanted to say a big thank you to the Old Town
Tavern and its crew,, the wonderful people that donated
the food, their time for doing the cooking and serving,
and the band that played the great music for the benefit
of Ron Giles.

My family would like to say a special thank you to all
the Wonderful patrons and citizens that came out and
joined us and their generous donations.

We love you all. Thank you so much.

Happy 52nd Birthday

and mother's day

Harriet Jones
We thank God for blessing you with 52 years of 'life.
God has been good to you. We thank God for bringing
you into our' life. A loving mother is the greatest gift
that God can give a child. Always being there when she
is needed, no matter what. We thank you for your love
and devotion, your kindness, your patience, your un-
derstanding, your gentle care, and always wanting the
very best for us. We would like to wish you a happy
birthday and a very happy mother's day.

Love always, lavon, Shavon, Le'youna, and Xavier.


James Joyce We spend hours of time sorting out
border disputes that would make
Condoleeza Rice's head spin. "He
took my seat!" "No, it's mine!" "I always sit there!" "I
want the blue plate!" "No I do!" "Me! Me!" At least at
the end of her day of negotiations, Condoleeza gets to
go home to her swanky, quiet Washington flat. We
moms just hope we get to go to the bathroom by our-
selves just this once. (One time when she was around
four, Georgia popped into the bathroom where I was
seated, put her hands behind her back and primly
said, "Do you want me to sing for you?")

Sure, we get the bathroom serenades, but mostly it's a
long, hard thankless slog. So, on Sunday, think about
all of the hours that your mother spent on you. Pull
out the stops and give her a day to remember: this
may be the last chance you get.


To my mother
Mother, you have really, truly been a blessing in my
life. I don't believe I would have made it this far if I did-
n't have you by my side to inspire me, as well'as en-
courage me. I'm certain beyond a shadow of a doubt I
wouldn't have made it this far mama. I love you and I
want you to know that you're sent from heaven above.

From your daughter, Teva Tyson Tegue, to my mother
Mary E. Mays. Lots and lots of love.

In loving memory on

mother's day

Our mother, grandmother,

great grandmother, and wife
We really, really, miss you very much. Wish you were
here. We thank God for everything you did for us. Mom-
my you gave us all we needed as children and adults.
You were always there to lend a helping hand. When
there was a problem, you gave us some wisdom on how
to get through it. You taught us how to love and how to
serve God.
God called you to your heavenly home. Even though
we are apart, we can still feel your love in our heart.
Whenever we need to talk to youm we can still hear
your voice in our ear. No you are at peace in your heav-
enly home. Your love lives within us, we are never
alone. We are blessed to have you as out mom.

Love,
Ralph Sr., your children, grandchildren, great
grandchildren, and your great great grandchildren

accident on


C.R. 351


On Saturday, May 3, 2008 at 3:50 A.M. Kara K.
Markham was traveling northbound on Coun-
ty Road 351. For unknown reasons her vehicle
veered right onto the shoulder of the road,
and then spun out of control, crossing CR 351.
Upon reaching the southbound shoulder of
351, the car began to overturn, travelling
north through a fence and striking several
trees before finally stopping. An estimated
$12,000 in damage was done to the vehicle.

Ms. Markham was seriously injured in the
accident, and was transported to Shands of
UE

Charges may be pending. The incident is be-
ing investigated by the Florida Highway Pa-
trol.

2007 "Phlegmmy

Awards" Identify the

Smokiest Films

of the year
The SmokeScreeners have compiled their list of the
ten films with most tobacco use as rated by students,
parents, and educators, and Hairspray, tops this year's
list as the Worst Movie of 2007.
"Hairspray, a PG-rated musical, depicted tobacco use
by teens, tobacco use by teachers around students in
their school, and tobacco use by a pregnant woman,"
said Dr. Barry Hummel. "Sadly, these negative images
reinforce the idea among teenagers that tobacco use is
normal and safe."
The SmokeScreeners program was developed by Dr.
Hummel, a Pediatrician, as a way of highlighting the
problem of tobacco use in films marketed to children
and teenagers. "Even if you exclude product place-
ment, smoking by actors in movies is a form of sublim-
inal advertising for the tobacco industry," says Dr.
Hummel. "The sad reality is that over half of all
teenagers who smoke say that they lit their first ciga-
rettes because it looked cool in a movie." The Smoke-
Screeners program teaches children and teenagers to
be more aware of the issue of onscreen smoking, and
provides families with information on the smoking
content of films marketed to their children.
The entire Top Ten Phlegmmy Awards for 2007 include:
1. Hairspray (PG)
2. The Simpson's Movie (PG-13)
3. Wild Hogs (PG-13)
4. Ocean's 13 (PG-13)
5. Ghost Rider (PG-13)
6. 1408 (PG-13)
7. The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep (PG)
8. Epic Movie (PG-13)
9. Balls of Fury (PG-13)
10. Across the Universe (PG-13)
The films are rated using a standardized score sheet
which takes into account the importance of the cast
members seen smoking, the amount of smoking, the lo-
cation of the smoking, and the perceived message of
the smoking scenes. The worst ten films are then se-
lected using a formula that takes into account the
film's smoking score, the MPAA rating, and film's tick-
et sales.
The Quit Doc Research and Education Foundation has
been awarded a grant from the Florida Department of
Health to provide tobacco education programs, such as
SmokeScreeners, throughout Dixie County. All pro-
grams are provided free-of-charge to participating
schools or organizations. Interested groups or individ-
uals can obtain more information, or schedule a pro-
gram, by calling 866-355-7848. Additional information

Governor Crist directs

state agencies to create

"officer down" alert


TALLAHASSEE - Governor Charlie Crist today signed
an Executive Order directing the immediate broadcast
of information to the public relating to offenders who
have allegedly killed or seriously injured a law enforce-
ment officer in the line of duty. Governor Crist signed
Executive Order 08-81 today during the Law Enforce-
ment Officers Memorial Service held in the Capitol
Courtyard. The broadcast information will appear on
highway message signs and other advisories, alerting
the public to report information about suspects.

"Today we honor the fallen officers who have given
their lives in service to the people of Florida, as well as
their families who bravely face each new day Without
their loved one," Governor Crist said. "I am honored to
sign this Executive Order to help ensure that those who
would seek to do harm to our officers are brought to
justice."
The Executive Order directs the Department of Trans-
portation, the Department of Highway Safety and Mo-
tor Vehicles and Florida Highway Patrol to coordinate
with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to
use technology similar to what is already being used
for AMBER Alerts, which notify the public when a
child is reported missing. As a result of the alerts, the
public has played a vital role in helping law enforce-
ment to safely recover children.

Today's ceremony, hosted by Florida State Lodge Fra-
ternal Order of Police, honored the 16 Florida law en-
forcement officers who lost their lives in the line of
duty during 2007. Fallen officers honored during the

Stan Ridgeway announces

candidacy for Taylor

County Commission
I would like to introduce myself to the folks of Taylor County My name is Stan
Ridgeway and I am running for County Commision Seat, District three. I grew up in
Kansas, the middle son of a mechanical contracting family I entered the US Navy in
1955. In 1961 I1 married a Florida girl named Jean and we are still together. We have
three children and four grandchildren that all live in the Gainesville area. In the
mid 1970's, my wife and I started a small manufacturing company in Pomona Park,
Fl (near Palatka). We built fiberglass pipes, tanks, and miscellaneous fabrications
for the pulp and paper industry, power plants, water and waste-water plants, and
other industries located in the Southeastern US. We also planted a 25 acre citrus
grove in the early 1990's.
While calling on Buckeye Cellulose during the 1970's. I was fortu- ,.
nate to find a hunting and fishing camp on Spring Wa f-rior
Creek. We spent many weekends here while our kids were
growing up. Every time we came to Taylor County it was re- . ,
inforced upon us that the people and the lifestyle fit our out- , .
look on life.
We retired in 1999 and moved to Steinhatchee. Current- \'/
ly I am a director on the Board of the Big Bend Water
Authority. I am active in the Waterfronts Florida
Partnership program and our local AARP. I am a
Methodist. I would like to serve on the County'
Commission to help preserve the lifestyle, culture, -
and heritage that make Taylor County a great ,
place to live. ' "


SRedneck Tech
by Eli Loy

Operating Sysems



My first computer did not have, in the traditional sense, and Operating System
(OS). I was about 6 years old, and my parents found it in the trash. What they
found along with it was a "Beginner's Basic" book. The book showed you how to
hook up the computer (to a TV), and then told you how to write programs. If you
wanted a video game, you wrote it. Instructions for programming databases and
such were contained in this ancient tome. Anyone who has operated one of these
system can tell you just how easy it is to operate a modern computer.
Modern computers, built for the average computer user, generally come preloaded
with thousands of programs. One could argue that this makes them more compli-
cated than the computers of old. Although technically true, you do not have to
teach a person an entire programming language for them to use the computer.
Modern Operating Systems (OS) have a nice clean point-and-click interface. You
need only know how to use a mouse. All of this pointing, clicking, icons, windows,
etc. that you see are the multipart program known as your Operating System (OS).
Most computers you will be using today will have Microsoft's Windows XP. In the
last few years most consumer computers were shipped with Windows XP already
installed on them. It is easy to use, and, for the most part, easy to install. Inserting
the CD-ROM containing the OS and turning on your computer will usually launch
an installation program with step-by-step instruction on what to do next to in-
stall/repair your copy of Windows. Some of you may be running Windows 98, Win-
dows NT, or Windows 2000. These Operating Systems are fine for the things most
people want to do with a computer, checking e-mail, typing letters, browsing the
internet, ans such. Persons seeking a higher-performance computer experience,
should generally upgrade to a machine running Windows XP. Just FYI, if your
computer IS running Windows 98, be sure to check out your system before you go
out and buy XP. Your computer may not run it very well. I reccomend having at
least a 1.4 GHz processor (I'll explain all of this hardware in later articles), and 512
MB of RAM. Faster processors and more RAM will speed things up nicely Many
new computers are coming with Windows Vista installed. I am not currently mak-
ing any reccomendations regarding Vista. It is new, and I haven't gotten into the
guts of it quite yet. When it was first released I decidedly didn't like it. But as it
gets its updates, and I get more experience with it, I begin to see features that I
like. Keep in mind, when Windows XP came out I hated it. I said that I would never
upgrade from Windows 98. After the release of Service Pack 2 for Windows XP, my
mind was changed, I run XP on my personal computer now.
If you have simple computer needs, Macintosh OS-X is a really smooth and easy-
to-use OS. There are many useful programs available for the Mac, this newspaper
is produced every week on a Mac. Mac OSs are far less likely to become infected
with a virus.
For the advanced user, Linux may be for you. If you have never used or installed
Linux, you should experiment on an older, "disposable" computer. You can mess
your PC up with Linux if you don't know how to install it properly. Many pages of
documentation can be found at www.linux.org..For the first time Linux-installer,
Ubuntu Linux is one of the easiest installations out there. You gan download
Ubuntu at www.ubuntu.com, you should download it on a high-speed internet con-
nection, as it is 700MB and would take a loooooooong time on dial-up. The best
thing about Linux, is that it is free. Many programs for Linux are similar to Mi-
crosoft, or Macintosh programs, but are free of charge. If you like free things, and
are an advanced computer-user, Linux may be for you.
Well, I'm out of space for this week, check back next week for another exciting
addition of "Redneck Tech."
Note:.If you have a special question or problem, and you would like to submit it to
"Redneck Tech, "you may e-mail me at eli@dcadvocate.net, or mail your inquiry to
Dixie County Advocate Redneck Tech, PO Box 5030 Cross City, FL 32628. Please, no
phone calls regarding computer problems.

Haven Hospice honors

Chiefland area volunteers for

dedicated service

LaVerne Long, Gret'n Daughaday. (Back): Bill Beinlich

Hospice recognized outstanding volunteers in the
Chiefland area during a luncheon on Apr. 30 at the
Tri-Counties Hospice Care Center. At the luncheon,
themed "Volunteers plant the seeds of caring," the
volunteers received praise for their time and dedicat-
ed service to Haven Hospice as a part of Volunteer.
Appreciation Month. Volunteers in other areas were
recognized at separate luncheons in April.

The Dr. Raymond Fitzpatrick Outstanding Volunteer
of the Year Award recognizes a special individual
who has shown outstanding leadership and is a role
model to other volunteers. The award, named after
Haven's volunteer medical director from 1979 to 1984,
was presented to Barbara and Bill Beinlich. This hus-
band-and-wife team spends time in a very rural part
of Haven's service area, and they always go the extra
mile. They truly are role models to Haven's volun-
teers and staff.

The Administrative Volunteer Service Award, given
to a volunteer who assists Haven Hospice staff in an
administrative role, doing anything from handling
paperwork to greeting visitors, was presented to LaV-
erne Long, Long is a reliable volunteer and brings a
smile to everyone she encounters.

The recipient of the Care Center Volunteer Service
w,,ard ,ret'n, .ghaday,,d., W is ir eceen,
terkevery Monday and Friday to.eip pas s butlinch
trays and ted patients. She always provides an ear
when a patient or family member wants to talk.

Betty Rapp, recipient of the Volunteer Liaison Volun-
teer Service Award, started at Haven as a patient-and-
family volunteer three years ago. As a volunteer liai-
son, she is an extension of the volunteer staff and
wears many hats. One of her duties is scheduling vol-
unteers to assist staff.

The Community Outreach Volunteer Service Award
recognizes a volunteer who has helped educate the
community about Haven Hospice and the services it
provides. Ann Chewning received this award. Not
only does Chewning visit patients during the week,
but she also spends time on the weekend assisting
events held in the Tri-Counties area. Rain or shine,
Haven can always depend on her!

The Home Care Volunteer Services Award, given to
Val Hutchinson, recognizes an outstanding volunteer
who spends time in patients' homes. Hutchinson ex-
hibits an outstanding level of patience, care and com-
panionship for patients and families. She is always
available when a caregiver needs a rest.

that you came by. Our next Saturday to be open will
be May 17th from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Hope to see
you there!

mation exchange", which should start about 7:30 PM

Relay for Life


Anderson Elementary's Relay for Life team in conjunc-
tion with Dairy Queen experienced another successful
night with our "Chill Out for a Cure" event. This was
the second year that Mr. and Mrs. Bloodworth and their
staff joined our Relay team in raising awareness and
money for the Dixie County Relay for Life Event. This
year's event raised over $700.00 for the American Can-
cer Society

Tracy Lee, a second grade teacher who partici-
pated in the event, had a chance encounter during the
night that epitomizes what Relay for Life is all about.
A little girl and her grandparents stopped in for a bite
to eat. Overwhelmed by the bustling crowd, they asked
Tracy what all the buzz was about. She informed them
it was a fundraiser involving teachers from a local ele-
mentary school. After the visitors were seated, they
continued to inquire about the event's purpose. As
they left, they stopped to share their story with Tracy.
The granddaughter had a tumor the size of a baseball
removed from the top of her spine just last year. They
live in Perry and were returning from a therapy ses-
sion in Gainesville. She continues to struggle with her
physical movement but is first and foremost a survivor.
They shared their appreciation for us helping such a
worthy cause, and wanted Tracy to pass the message
on to those who were involved. This story sums up
why our phenomenal community gets behind such a
worthwhile event.

The AES Relay team would like to thank John &
Melanie Bloodworth and all their staff for "putting up
with us" again this year...hopefully our skills are im-
proving. Thank you also to Cross City Florist for their
balloon donatio-. Congrafiulations to Mrs. McCaskilrls
and Mrs. Frost's classes for having the highest percent
attending. They were treated to an ice cream cake,
compliments of Dairy Queen. Special thanks to our
community for their continued support of all the Dixie
Relay teams and don't forget to join us at OTES on Fri-
day, May 9th for the Dixie County Relay for Life event.


Thank you!
RRMS Jr. Beta Club gives a big thank you to all of the com-
munity for letting us wash their cars and for donating
money to the American Cancer Society We also thank you
for buying raffle tickets. Those proceeds will also go to the

Of all the schools in the nation that participated in
this art contest (schools affiliated with Achieve 3000)
Kimberly is the 3rd Grade winner. Kimberly's ex-
tremely proud teacher, Mrs. Marchant, conducted a
brief art study in her classroom earlier this year
when Achieve 3000 posted the contest and rules. Her
students reviewed several examples of art and
artists' techniques from such artists as Van Gogh,
Rembrandt, Dali, Picasso, and Monet to name a few.
Students then chose the art that most captivated them
and sacrificed a couple days of PE. to paint using
their favorite artist's technique.

Since the students were unable to travel for inspira-
tion, Mrs. Marchant brought the inspiration into the
classroom by choosing pictures from the Better
Homes & Gardens magazines, such as, landscapes
and flower arrangements. Kimberly's favorite artist
was Van Gogh. Along with her painting, a still-life of
sunflowers, Kim also had to submit a brief essay ex-
plaining why she chose Van Gogh as her favorite
artist. Parents and students can view all of the win-
ners nationwide if they log in to the KidBiz or Teen-
Biz site. Way to go Kimberly!

Opening Your Pool for

the Season: What You

Need to Know



i la i J Ai la i 3.- S .. ... . '-:-


(ARA) - With warm weather rapidly approaching and
Memorial Day falling early this year, it is time for
homeowners to think about getting their swimming
pools in shape for the season. Summer is a time to en-
joy warm weather and have a relaxed attitude.


From Commission, page oner

Commissioner Valentine presented a check to the
board for over $8,000 which represents Dixie County's
refund from our Solid Waste program. This brings
the cost down by $2 to $41 per ton. For environmental
reasons, Dixie County does not have a landfill of its
own and has partnered with other counties to share a
landfill 80 miles away from us. To level the playing
field for all concerned, Dixie, having the longest dis-
tance to travel pays less in landfill charges as they
pay more in fuel costs. Other members of the alliance
have, in recent months, attempted to re-balance this
agreement and to the credit of Commisioner Valen-
tine, have failed.

Synergy Solutions presented the proposed site plans
for the Yellow Jacket Park and Fish Camp, Suwannee
River Hideaway R/V Park and Spurgeon Cheek Fish
Camp. The intention is to purchase these properties
using Florida Communities Trust's acquisition grant
program and with subsequent ecologically sensitive
development, produce more areas of natural beauty
within the County to attract visitors and provide resi-
dents with a nice places to play

A Walk in the Garden


by Art Wyckoff


The second week of May is designated as NATIONAL WATER CONSERVATION
WEEK. Even though Dixie County is one of the few counties in our state that
presently does not have water restriction laws we still need to be reminded of the
word conservation. Whether we have our own well or depend on the city/county
to provide our water, we have the obligation to be good stewards of our precious
water supply.

Our gardens are a good place to start practicing water conservation. Check your
faucets for leaks, replace garden hose washers when needed, attach a shut off
valve or sprayer to your garden hose, so you don't waste water needlessly, and wa-
ter only during early morning hours or late afternoon to avoid midday evapora-
tion. One good idea about what plants to use would be to consider Florida native
varieties, particularly designated for our zone. Xeriscape, a funny word
which means to use drought tolerant plants; plants that can survive on little or no
extra water to get their root systems established before they are "good to go" with
just the daily water God provides.

After you have these drought resistant plants in the ground, you can add to their ,,'
health by tucking them in with a nice bed of mulch. A layer of 2 - 3 inches of
mulch provides a dual function in your garden. First, it retains the moisture level
of your soil thus aiding the root development. Second, a thick layer discourages
weed growth from below. But, let's be realistic, some common pesky rascals like
Nut Grass and Palmetto seedlings will still need to be dealt with, however, most
unwanted sprouts can be easily plucked from the surface.

Now, that all of your water problems are resolved, add a light fertilizer to your
perennials this month, pick a few of those early blueberries for a snack, pull up
your porch rocker and smell the roses that are loving life at this time of year.
ENJOY!

Your filter is a very important part of your pool's
maintenance program. You must make sure this is
working properly

* Assess the pool itself. You will want to remove any
large items by hand or with a net and any remaining
dirt, sand, algae or other small debris should be vacu-
umed.

* After the pool filter has been running between eight
andl2 hours, you must test the water. There are simple
test kits for this. Test the pH, total alkalinity, calcium
hardness, etc., thoroughly and then add any necessary
chemicals in the proper sequence to balance the water
chemistry Retest the water to see if any adjustments
have to be made.

* Make sure to test all fences, locks, handrails, ladders
and diving boards for wear and damage. Safety should
always remain a top priority

* Dive in to a stress-free summer!

Opening your pool should be fun, not tedious. Doing it
right can mean the difference between a summer of
enjoyment and a summer of headaches! Follow these
steps from the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals
to guarantee your water is sparkling ready for an en-
joyable season:

* Remove leaves and debris from the pool cover and
the deck.

* Pump any standing water off the cover, making sure
not to drain dirty water into the pool.


* Take off the cover, give it a quick clean and store it
in a dry place that's free of debris and protected from
the sun and weather.

* Fill pool water up to the proper level. Your pool must
be filled to the middle of the skimmer opening to prop-
erly circulate.

* Make sure all of the equipment is clean and in work-
ing order. Hook up pool pumps and filters and recon-
nect all hoses and electrical connections. Start the cir-
culation system and remove all debris from the pool.

~Syanish 'Proverb


FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH

We' had two wonderful services today and if you
missed either one of them, you truly missed a bless-
ing. God sent two great messages to us through Bro.
Jackie and in the morning service, Sis. Chris Lord
and Tommy McQueen did the special music, singing
"Without Him". They did a splendid job. In the
evening service, Buddy and Dot Britton sang "Since
Jesus Came Into My Heart" and they did their usual
great job as well.
Next Sunday is Mother's Day and let's all remember
to honor our mothers on her special day Their love,
sacrifices and the tender care and attention they gave
us all through our lives is just a small sample of what
they've done for us. Call your mother if you can't go
see her, tell her you love her and how much she has
meant in your life. It's the best Mother's Day gift she
could get.
Remember to pray for the less fortunate this week,
the ones who have lost loved ones, the ones who are
sick, the ones in the hospitals, the ones whose hearts
are burden and broken for one reason or another,
and just all of those that need a special touch from
God. God knows who they are and what their needs
are and He wants to hear from you requesting His
love and understanding to fill that void in their lives.
He will bless you for it.
If you were visiting with us today, we pray that you
were made to feel welcome and loved and that you
went away saying "it was good to be in the house of
the Lord". If you're looking for a church home, we in-
vite you to share ours, and if you were just passing
through, we invite you back anytime.
Until we meet again, may the Lord keep you safe,
happy and healthy and we will be looking for you at
the next appointed time.
