Turkey List

The $300,000 Big Bend Wa-
ter Authority Wastewater
Treatment Plant Explan-
sion has been listed as a
"Budget Turkey" by Flori-
da Tax Watch. The reason
given for the "turkey" des-
ignation was that the pro-
ject was disapproved by
SFWMD Governing
Board, as not benefiting a
priority water body

Other "turkey" projects
included $75,000 to the Na-
tional Black Caucus of

$350,000 to a South Florida

ciation, 3.2 million dollars
for a mystery land acqui-

See entire article
on page 3


On Wednesday, May 25, Senator Bill Nelson stopped in
Dixie on his trip through the state. The Senator, along
with some of our county officials, dined at Smokey's
for lunch. Judge Koberlein said a prayer over the meal,
and the eating commenced. Once the serious business
of lunch was out of the way, Senator Nelson thanked
everyone for coming and set about listening to their
concerns,

Buddy Lamb raised the issue of today soaring gaso-
line prices, something that is on everyo'nes mind at the
moment. Senator Nelson attributes speculation in the
oil industry to our current prices. He also noted that
the dollar is weakening, in respect to other currencies,
and that is also part of the problem. The Senator also
mentioned Exxon's record profits in this year's first
quarter. He believes that additional taxes aimed at such
profiteering would be an incentive for oil companies to
keep their prices at a reasonable level.

When Judge Koberlein asked the Senator to explain
what congress plans to do to balance our nation's bud-
get, Senator Nelson didn't go into specifics. He did state
that congress will have to decrease spending, while in-
creasing their revenue.

Stabbing in Old Town-


Timothy R. Adams, age 44 of Old Town, was treated and transported
by Dixie County EMS to the Old Town Helipad and was flown to
Shands Teaching Hospital, Trauma Unit in Gainesville. The Sher-
iff's Office is continuing to investigate the stabbing incident.

According to Ms. Crownover, she stabbed Mr. Adams in self defense,
after he forced his way into her house and assaulted her. She stated
that they had been arguing for several days prior to the incident.

Other sources indicate that Mr. Adams may have suffering from the
onset of demencia, arising from ailments he suffers, or the medica-
tion he is prescribed.

Mr. Adams has been released from the hospital at the time of this
writing. At this time no arrests have been made pending further in-
vestigation.


Ms. Crownover

On Thursday, May 29, 2008 at approximately 4:27 pm, Deputies and
Investigators with the Dixie County Sheriff's Office responded to
single family residence belonging to Emma Crownover in Old Town
in reference to a stabbing. Upon arrival, deputies found a white
male, which had apparent multiple stab wounds.


1,400 acres of sawgrass

up for development if

bill not vetoed


n a strange twist that
puts Dixie shorelines
at risk, environmental
groups are calling on
Governor Crist to veto
CS/HB 7059. It was con-
sidered "the best pro-en-
vironmental bill to come
along," according to Stan
Meeks of the Suwannee
River Keepers, who is
urging environmentally-
minded residents and
Dixie County's coastal
dwellers to email Crist at
charlie.crist@myflorida.co
m. The bill threatens the
sawgrass that manatees
feed on, that cleans the
water and stabilizes the
bottom sediment. The
original goal of the bill
was to protect the sea-
grass, but Rep. Will
Kendrick slid in a last
minute amendment that
allows private developers
to create "seagrass miti-


gation banks" on state-
owned lands that will al-
low them to destroy other
areas of sawgrass on pri-
vate land to build mari-
nas, condos, and boat
channels by buying
"credits" from the "sea-
grass credit companies."
"Exchanging" already
protected state lands in
order to develop private
lands appears to be a
"bait and switch" move
that has environmental-
ists fuming.

According to the St. Pe-
tersburg Times Kendrick
misrepresented the bill to
lawmakers as a list of
protected species: "He
did not tell his fellow
committee members that
the amendment included,
far more than just a list
of sea grass species.."

T ruck drivers pay at-
Jtention: continuing
the greenhouse gas
rulemaking process initi-
ated last July, the Florida
Department of Environ-
mental Protection an-
nounces two upcoming
rule development events.
On June 19, the Environ-
mental Regulation.Com-
mission (ERC) will con-
duct a rule adoption hear-
ing to consider approval
of the department's pro-
posed rule for reducing
emissions resulting from
long-duration on-road
diesel engine idling.

The rule prohibits any
diesel vehicle over 8,500
pounds from idling for
"more than five consecu-
tive minutes." Unavoid-
able traffic conditions, ar-
mored vehicles, and
emergency vehicles are
exempted, but no idling is


allowed "solely for
the comfort of the dri-
ver." An exemption for
times when the driver is
sleeping in the berth will
expire on September 30,
2013. Dixie has a large
number of commercial
vehicles; what drivers are
going to do to avoid heat-
stroke in the summer af-
ter 2013 was not ad-
dressed in the rule.

The hearing will be held
in Conference Room A of
the Douglas Building,
3900 Commonwealth
Blvd., Tallahassee, begin-
ning at 10:00 a.m.

At the June 19 ERC meet-
ing, the department will
also brief the commis-
sion on its rule develop-
ment project for adoption
of the California motor

dards. This rule will add

This is not about


Willie Nelson
Please understand that I have nothing against Willie Nel-
son. He's a fine musician, singer and song-writer, and I've
even heard it said that we look alike. I'd prefer that my mu-
sical talents resembled his, but that's another matter.
What rm getting at here has to do with the problem of ex-
pensive motor fuels caused by the rapidly increasing price
of crude oil and the corresponding, failure, of, eiter goyern-
ment or the private sector ,tq come up with a workable solu-
tion through alternative fuels.
You see, Willie Nelson isa confirmed environmentalist.
But instead of writing songs about the environment that
nobody wants to hear, he has a tour bus that runs on dis-
carded cooking oil that restaurants are glad to give to him,
just to get rid of it.
Now, before you start pouring extra-virgin olive oil into
your gas tank, let me point out that I believe Willie's tour
bus was designed to run on diesel fuel, and that it might re-
quire some modification for even a conventional diesel en-
gine to burn something else. Nonetheless, Willie's bus runs
on discarded cooking oil and that sure doesn't cost close to
five bucks a gallon like the diesel fuel you buy at the corner
filling station.
Thus, the question arises, when Willie Nelson can come up
with a dirt cheap way to fuel his tour bus, why can't some-
body do something similar to replace gasoline as a fuel for
the internal combustion engines more commonly used in
automobiles and light trucks? (And don't even mention
growing corn to make alcohol and raising the price of
everything from whiskey to cattle feed, while having no per-
ceptible effect on the price of motor fuel.)
What would be wrong with hydrogen? There's plenty of it,
as it is an essential component of water, including seawater.
And there's not much demand for it since the Hindenburg
blew up back in 1937.
Water is described in chemistry class as H20, meaning it
contains two parts of hydrogen to one of oxygen. Separate
these, and you are left with one highly-combustible gas (hy-
drogen) and another very useful gas (oxygen), which could
be put to good use keeping recovering smokers alive.
Separating the components of water involves a process
known as "electrolysis." It requires the expenditure of suf-
ficient energy to create an electrical current, for which rea-
son it was considered impractical when gasoline cost 30
cents a gallon, but at four bucks and rising, perhaps it
needs to be reconsidered.
In any case, electrolysis does'not involve any process that
could be construed as environmentally unfriendly, so the
customary gaggle of protesters would be hard put to oppose
the practice. Furthermore, we wouldn't have to buy seawa-,
ter from the Middle Eastern sheikdoms or the Latin Ameri-
can banana republics. Shux, with synthetic motor oils, we
wouldn't even need crude oil to keep the motors lubricated.
No doubt, there is something to the rumors that efficient
hydrogen motors have been designed, but the patents have
been bought up by the oil companies which, for obvious
reasons, don't want any such innovation to get off the
ground. Still, I don't expect that the technology to make one
work is on a level with rocket science, considering the fact
that the conventional internal combustion engine would
probably require no more than peripheral modifications.
Considering the way information gets disseminated on the
Internet, one set of workable plans would fall into the
hands of at least a few hundred capable shade tree mechan-
ics with efficient workshops in a matter of days, and a few
more semi-pro chemists who could manufacture hydrogen
from wells in their back yards.
I'd sure like to see what Henry Ford or the Wright Brothers
would have done with an opportunity like that.

t's a miserably hot Satur-
day; too hot to work in the
garden, so I turned on the
sprinkler and finished up some appraisals I had hold-
ing and decided to do a little laundry and entertain
myself by watching the Democrats fight on CSPAN
over our Florida votes. (Well, not my vote, but the
vote of anybody who voted for a democrat.) Yes, I ac-
tually watch CSPAN. I'm geeky
enough not to be ashamed to admit qt is alway
that I watch it all the time. Don't intention
get that look; it's not as boring as intention
you'd think. Today it's as funny as work
anything else on the idiot box. ~OsC

They're all horribly busy and serious explaining to
each other that although they said that Florida and
Michighn votes wouldn't count; they really, really
want to win in November and they've changed their
minds. In short, they're making the old standard
politician's argument that the ends justify the means;
that my word is my bond.. .until it benefits me to
change my mind. You'd think that someone would
stand up and say, hey! Let's just do what we said we
were going to do for a change. Instead, they're bicker-
ing over how to split up the booty Ugh. That's
enough of that. If I hear the words "reconciliation" or
"unity" one more time I'm going to become ill on my
Mac keyboard. These people can't even come back
from LUNCH when they say they promise to...they
were supposed to be back an hour and a half ago. On
national television. That's just embarrassing.

Politicians of all sorts worry me, not just democrats.
Gov. Crist is scaring me this week. It hasn't really
made the news, but he's about to place all Floridians
under the permanent boot of the environmental nut-
jobs who run California. Coming up on June 19,
they're having a meeting to adopt California's emis-
"ionis standards for the State of Florida.: (They're also.
passing rules that you can't idle your diesel engine for
more than five minutes on that date...see the story,
front page.) If you just sort of scan the surface and
read the press releases; it sounds like a good thing. It
forces automakers to build special cars that meet
tough emission standards; it forces power plants to
limit the amount of emissions they can produce; it
sounds environmental and green and good. It's not;
it's a bureaucratic nightmare that we won't be able to
escape. They're legislating by executive fiat; there's


Letter to the Editor

I would like to use this letter as a means of clearing up
some confusion that has come about. In a recent issue
of the Advocatem an article stated that I was stepping
down as Mayor. Later in the article is was explained,
however, I feel the need to explain it further. My term
as Mayor ends on the 31st of December 2008, regardless
of the outcome of the November election. I am not
seeking re-election as Mayor, instead I am concentrating
on my bid to become the Supervisor of Elections. Flori-
da Statute Section 99.012(3) ststes "No officer may qual-
ify as a candidate for another public office (whether
state, district, county, or municipal) if the terms or any
part thereof run concurrently with each other, without
resigning from the office he or she presently owns."
Therefore I am not required to resign, I will continue to
serve the people of CroSs City to the best of my ability
for the remainder of the year. Thanks for this opportu-
nity to explain my situation. If anyone has any further
questions, please call me at 498-5700 or e-mail me at
vote4tank@bellsouth.net

Keneth "Tank" Lee
Mayor Town of Cross City

To whom it may

concern:

My name is Melissa Waldron, I have lived in Dixie ,
County for 22 years. I am a 1995 Dixie County High
School graduate. I have three children in the Dixie
District School System. My middle son Jaxon, a third
grader at Anderson Elementary School, has'been a vic-
tim of bullying for his entire third grade year. It has
been heartbreaking to watch my son's demeanor
change as he has lost his self esteem and has gone
from loving school to hating it. His grades are lower
now at the end of the school year than they were when
school started in August. My husband and I have gone
through all of the "proper" administration for help
which has been to no avail and I am now at my wits
end. My son has received death threats in one instance
and has been physically attacked on numerous occa-
sions and has been placed on hospital homebound by a
physician for two weeks to six months due to a situa-
tional anxiety disorder from being attacked and bullied
at school and has been referred for counselling to help
build his self esteem and "fix" what has been broken


been no vote, and the people running this auto show
will not be elected or subject to the voters. (Can you
say taxation without representation?)

Arthur Bellot brought it to my attention and tried to
explain to me why it concerned him. (In small words,
because I'm not that bright, sometimes.) He said that
it would increase the cost of our electricity. Remem-
ber the rolling blackouts in California a few summers
back? Nobody wanted to spend
s with the hest the money and wade through the
paperwork required in California
that te worst to build power plants. That could
is dcone. be us in a few years under this
ar WiCle plan. It would also discourage'
new business. We've lost Georgia
Pacific already; can we afford to lose other industries
who may have some sort of regulated emissions when
they move two hours north to Georgia who doesn't
have strict regulations? Can we afford to lose one
more job? Can we afford to pay California prices? Can
we afford to pay "emissions" police to sit on the state
border and turn back any vehicle that doesn't pass in-
spection? Do we want to?

Arthur mentioned that it would not only increase the
price we're paying at the pump (oh, sure, stick it to us
some more, we're made out of money), due to the re-
formulated gas and ethanol standards in the rules; it
will make it almost impossible for us to buy heavy
trucks. A quick internet search showed that some-
body has calculated that complying with California's
rules will add around $2,000 to the price of a new
truck. It will probably be more. Arthur also men-
tioned that it would hurt local auto dealers, too...any-
body who wants a big truck will just drive over to Val-
dosta and buy one there. I googled that, too...but no,
they won't be able to do that either. California rules
don't allow you to register any vehicle in the state un-
less it meets the current environmental guidelines.
There will be no getting around the expensive red
tape. Not even FARM TRACTORS will be exempt.
Floridians can't afford this kind of "green." Especial-
ly in this economy

down over this school year. There havb been more
days than I can count that he would cry and tell me
different things like 'Tm a good kid, mom," "I don't
know why everybody picks on me," "Please don't make
me go to school," he would say that he was sick and beg
me not to send him to school. All of this because he
was truly in every sense of the word AFRAID of what
would happen to him the next time he went to school.

There are no words to express how helpless you feel as
a parent, the protector and nurterer of this little life
that you have been blessed with when you can't protect
him. You have to explain to him how mean people ex-
ist and we have to learn to cope. I feel like they (the
students) are having to behave as adults and their
childhoods are becoming shorter and shorter because
NO ONE is there to fix this and the other problems
,that exist in our public school system. There is not
enough being done to STOP the bullying and harass-
ment. I am now searching for HELP not just for me
and Jaxon but for other students and parents going
through the same nightmare. I plan to rally with other
parents, caregivers and. guardians in this community
to STOP the violence in our school system so our chil-
dren can learn and grow in a SAFE environment. I am
one voice for my so and may not be heard as well as a
whole community to represent our future and protect
it as we forge forward for better things to come. I
know that I do not stand alone in this matter and Jax-
on's story is' -NOT the only one. I will be working with
the School Board and others locally and on the State
level to bring change to our public school system and
in turn our local community. I would like to hear from
members of our community and ask for support in this
matter because together our voices will be heard and I
truly believe that positive change will happen!!
If you would like to show your support and or share
your story please send me an email at
mlsswldrn@aol.com or give me a call at 352-318-5534.
Thank you so much!
Sincerely,
Melissa Waldron

A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to the three angels for
being there to help my soil when I could not. Justin
Hart, Ivey Sapp and Liza Fowler, all three of you are
HEROES for standing up to the child that attacked
Jaxon at school on April 29,2008. It takes something
special to endanger yourself without much thought to
the consequences that you may suffer simply to pro-
tect a friend. .

Senator Visits


Dixie
Continued from Front Page...
Joyce Davis expressed dissatisfaction over her vote not
being counted. She also opined that our President
should be more accountable for his actions. While Mr.
Nelson did not have a ready answer on the issue of '
Presidential accountability, he did say that he was dis-
tressed about the ruling'regarding Florida's Democrat-
ic votes, and said that he had done everything in his
power to prevent the situation.

"We depend on our water resources," said Buddy
Lamb, "We've had historic lows on the Suwannee river
this year. We're scared to death of our water being
transferred." Mr. Lamb pointed out that, in years past,
the cost to transport and treat the water from the
Suwannee was too high. Now, however other areas
would bear the cost just to stop the infusion of salt wa-
ter into their aquifer. He asked if the Federal govern-
ment has any plans to fund desalination.

The Senator said that he was unaware of any pro-
grams to fund desalination. He is, however, aware that
the cost of desalination is very prohibitive. SRWMD
Executive Director David Still said that some of the
cost of desal is in the disposal of the brine. Currently
the EPA considers the brine that is leftover from desali-
nation a pollutant. He proposed that if the EPA would
change the brine's classification, desalination might
become a more realistic alternative. Senator Nelson
promised to look into the matter.

When asked about our nation's possible withdrawal
from Iraq, he said regardless of which president is
elected, a gradual withdrawal from Iraq will occur. The
time-frame is the only aspect in question.

LIVE OAK, Fla. (May 28, 2008)- Senator Bill Nelson
joined Suwannee River Water Management District
(District) governing board members and staff on an ed-
ucational excursion down the Suwannee River on
Wednesday The eight-mile outing began at Fanning
Springs and ended at Manatee Springs.

Prior to boat departure, Nelson also attended a meeting
hosted by the District in Cross City, where various en-
vironmental groups were given the opportunity to ex-
press their opinions and concerns regarding state and
regional environmental issues.

"I want you to educate me," Nelson said in regard to
the specific issues affecting this area.

Concerns addressed during the hour-long meeting in-
cluded water transfer, protection of the springs and-
Suwannee River and opposition to. water bottling along
the Santa Fe River. Nelson listened to suggestions made
by several groups, such as Save Our Suwannee, who
suggested giving the Suwannee River a special designa-
tion under federal law that would make it more protect-
ed and less vulnerable to external pressures.

The meeting concluded with Nelson thanking the atten-
dees for enlightening him on the important regional is-
sues that directly affect our area and assuring the audi-
ence that he would do his best to assist the District
with its mission.

Following the meeting, Nelson and his staff made their
way to Fanning Springs to get a first-hand look of what
pure beauty North Florida has to offer.

District staff explained to Nelson that this area of the
state 'is the last piece of natural Florida that exists, and
without proper preservation and protection, it will
slowly vanish. Staff asked for financial and political
leadership to preserve, restore and protect the areas
natural resources.

At the end of the tour, Nelson said he thoroughly en-
joyed the boat outing and now has a deeper under-
standing of the troubles affecting our area.


Arrest made in


aggravated assault case


First District, Florida- On June 2, 2008, the Dixie County Sheriff's Office investigat-
ed a complaint by Barton D. Mauldin of First District concerning the theft of over
six hundred dollars in auto parts. Mauldin told Deputies that William T. Fincher, III
returned the auto parts to Advance Auto Parts in Cross City without his permis-
sion. Deputies were able to verify the return based off of evidence they obtained
from Mauldin and Advance Auto. During the course of the investigation Deputies
attempted to make contact with Fincher, but they were unable to locate or make con-
tact with Fincher.

that he was going to shoot her father. Mauldin told the Deputies that he was con-
cerned for his safety as well as the safety of his family After a thorough search,
Fincher was located in First District at camper. Inside the camper, Deputies recov-
ered a small caliber handgun that Fincher had obtained earlier in the day

Attorney General launches "Most Wanted"
fugitive website
TALLAHASSEE, FL Attorney General Bill McCollum today launched a new
website featuring most wanted fugitives being pursued by the Attorney
General's law enforcement officers. The website will highlight dangerous
criminals on a nationwide level and will have information provided by the
Attorney General's Medicaid Control Fraud Unit, Office of Statewide
Prosecution and CyberCrime Unit.

"Sometimes the most valuable information provided to our law enforcement
comes from concerned citizens within our communities," said Attorney
General McCollum. "With the help of this website and its viewers,
dangerous criminals with serious charges can be located and brought to
justice quickly"'

The website will feature suspects and convicted criminals who are wanted
on serious charges including drug trafficking, cybercrime, organized
criminal activity, racketeering, and failing to appear for sentencing
after conviction or plea agreement. Each fugitive listing will include an
informational summary of the individual's charges and potential threat as
well as an option to access a full-page profile with additional details
such as the fugitive's last known whereabouts or any known aliases.

Information on reporting tips to local law enforcement and local Crime
Stoppers organizations will be available on the website. Viewers can also
access the tip line contact information by clicking on the 'View all' link
on the Crime Stoppers Tip Line page. Citizens are advised to refrain from
taking any action to apprehend the individuals and to report all

A gentle wind blew across the land
Reaching out to take his hand
For on the winds the angels came
Calling out a father's name.
Left behind. his children's tears,
Loving memories of the years
Of joy and love, a life well spent
And now to God a Father's sent.


On angel's wings, a heavenly flight
The journey home, towards the light
To we who weep, a life is gone
But in our hearts, our father lives on

What is "Digital Audio"
you ask? Well, my
friends, it is the best
thing to happen to music
(not to be confused with
the music INDUSTRY),
since Elvis. It allows the
highest quality of sound
to be reproduced time
and time again with no
evident distortion. I'm
sure you've heard it. You
listen to digital audio any
time you pop a CD into
your CD player, the audio
on your favorite DVD is
digital as well. But, forget
about the astounding
quality, what makes it the
greatest thing ever is its
portability.

Now, I'm sure I am going
to get sued for this, so all
of you loyal readers start
saving money for my
lawyers (just kidding),
The Recording Industry
Association of America
(RIAA) is not the friend
of portability According
to them, if you purchase
a CD, and then copy it
onto your computer you
are a thief (their words,
my friends, not mine).
Now, this may seem rea-
sonable, but what you
have to understand is
how easily your CD can
be destroyed. A tiny
scratch, and that CD you
payed $15 $30 for is ru-
ined. If you had copied it
onto your computer, you
-could use a CD burning
drive to make another
copy of it. Scratches are
not your only foe, fellow
audiophiles, I have actu-
ally had CDs decompose,
that's right, they ROT! As
far as I am concerned,
when I go out and pur-
chase a CD, I am not buy-
ing the silly little plastic
disc. I am buying the mu-
sic contained on the disc.

Granted, the RIAA has a
valid argument against
file-sharing networks. If
you take someones copy-
righted works without
paying them, or asking
their permission, you are
stealing. I don't feel that
maintaining an archive
of music that I did, in
fact, pay for is stealing
though. Not only that,
how in the devil are you
going to get said music
onto an MP3 player, or
other portable device,
without first copying it
onto your computer.
Their answer is to pur-
chase the music from a
music-vending website.
In my humble opinion, if
you are able to purchase
digital audio from a web-.
site and have it on your
computer, then the the
digital audio you pur-
chase at Wal-Mart can
also go onto your comput-
er. Well, that's enough of
me ranting about the
RIAA, if you want to
know more about THEM,
you should check out

Digital Audio


en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R
IAA.

Anyhow, audio from a
CD can be, and frequent-
ly is, copied onto a com-
puter. Having your music
library on your computer
has many advantages.
For one, you don't have to
hunt through more than
9000 CDs to find your fa-
vorite Hank Williams
song, you can just run a
search for it. I am going
to presume that you are
using Windows XP from
here on in. Now, all the
1337 h4xx0rz (<--- I'll ex-
plain this in a future is-
sue) are going to laugh at
me for this, but they don't
need to read this anyway.
I use Windows Media
Player 10 to maintain my
music library There, I
admitted it. While there
are many other music
managers and players
out there, most notably
Winamp
(www.winamp.com), Win-
dows Media Player conve-
niently comes with Win-
dows, so I use it. If you
have never used Windows
Media Player before, be
sure to check out its help
file, it will get you going.
The program has just
about everything you
need to get started build-
ing a digital audio li-
brary on your computer.

Odds are that you'll be '
mostly seeing MP3s. An
MP3 is a compressed au-
dio file. It has reasonably
high quality, and a small
file-size. Just about any
computer will be able to
handle this format. An-
other audio format you
may encounter is the
WMA. WMA stands for
Windows Media Audio.
Most computers running
a Microsoft operating
system can handle these.
Macintosh computers
don't like WMA files so
much. There are too
many digital audio for-
mats to list here, so we'll
get to the important bits.
If you find an audio file
that your computer can-
not read, you may need to
install a Codec. A Codec
is basically a set of in-
structions telling your
media player how to read
a particular file type. A
good way to find a codec
is to type the file exten-
sion (IE: .WAV .OGG
.MP3 .PAM or whatever
is after the i.i)into
Google, along with the
word codec. Another op-
tion is to convert the file
to a type that is recog-
nized by your media
player. You can find vari-
ous utilities to do this at
www.freewarehome.org. I
am currently checking a
few of them out myself,
and will let y'all know
what I think of them in
the next issue.

'Till next time!


30 years

I just wanted to thank God for everything he
blessed me with and the 30 years of being
with Hardees, and all the customers who say
"Helo" every day Hopefully there will be 30
more years to come, 'cause I'm-not going any-
where no time soon. Thanks to everyone, and
especially God for keeping me going strong all
these years. Oh, by the way, i've been working
at Hardees in Old Town from 78 to 2008.

Thanks,

Dora iliizaDetn Buuer
the Spring of 1938


Valentine ready for a ride in


Dora Elizabeth Butler Valentine was born March 25,
1919 at the Butler Homestead, Dixie County, (at that
time it was in Lafayette County). Dora was the daugh-
ter of John Robert and Elizabeth Overstreet Butler. She
was the tenth child of twelve children. Dora attended
school at the old Butler School, located n her father's
property. She and her husband Lester Valentine made
their home on this site. Dora Butler married Lester
Valentine on January 7, 1938 in Cross City, Dixie Coun-
ty, Florida. Dora and Lester had three children,
Evonne, Steve, and Frayne "Smokey"; eight Grandchil-
dren, seventeen Great-grandchildren, and 2 Great-
Great Grandchildren. Dora and her husband moved
their family to Gainesville in 1948. They kept their
home in Dixie County with the intentions of returning
home. The home made a wonderful vacation and family
retreat. She retired from the Alachua County School
System and they joined their children that had already
moved back to the old Butler Homestead. Dora loved
the woods and liked to go for "buggy" rides and cook-
outs. She loved the wild flowers and always came back
with an arm full of flowers. She had planted (at
Lester's last count) 151 azalea plants in her yard.
Spring is still a carpet of color at her home.


Dara Chewning holding her Great Grandmother's
urn and her Mother Cindy Chewning .
When Dora's first Grandchild was born, she became
MOOMA and will always be MOOMA. Each Grandchild
was very special to her. She had a way of making each
feel that they were the only one. She could pick out
thorns etc and never cause pain. She patched skinned
knees etc, and.always finished off with a cookie. Her
cooking was the greatest! If you stopped by for a visit,
you always got fed. She loved to cook and feed people.
Lester always said she could start with nothing and
still put the very best meal on the table.
Coming from a large family had given her plenty of
practice. Dora love animals, especially horses. She had
helped with her father's cattle round-ups as a young
woman and had a horse until she moved to Gainesville.
She passed her love of horses on to her children and
grandchildren. In her last years you could ask her how
she was and she would say "I'm fine. I'd ride a horse if
they would let me." Dora died April 9, 2008 at her home.
She got her last horseback ride on the day of her
Memorial. Her Granddaughter Cindy Chewning and
Great granddaughter Dara Chewning saddled their
horses and took Mooma to visit her old home (Butler
Home) and her and Lester's home before binging her to
the Butler Cemetery to rest beside her beloved hus-
band, Lester.

We, her family, thank each of you for your love and
concern, and Rev. James Butler, Jonathan Sherill and
Rev. Billy Robson for your wonderful words of love.

A Walk in the Garden -
June 2008

- y Art Wyckoff
.' The month of June has been ear-
Sarked for years as the month as-
"-, *,, . sociated with weddings, Father's
Say, and graduations. This month I
would like to step out of the Gar-
den box a little and offer my con-.
gratulations to the hundreds of area 2008 graduates.
As a retired educator, I am thankful for all of the
young people who made the choice to stick it out,
learn as much as they could and receive their diplo-
ma in recognition of their efforts. Just as the harsh
winter dealt a crude blow to several hundred trees at
our nursery, I felt the need to focus on the ones that
made it through the tough times. So it is with the
graduates, that we must be reminded to be positive
and focus on their potential which will become the
history of tomorrow. .
Graduates, may I encourage you to consider a career
in the huge Florida agriculture industry(over $15 bil-
lion in 2007, according to the data from the Florida
Nursery Growers and Landscaping Association). Ca-
reers range from farmers to landscape architects and
irrigation specialists to golf course superintendents.
The complex environment and our limited water sup-
ply are now international issues for which expertise
and studies will be necessary to provide creative tech-
nology Lake City CC, Santa Fe CC, FSU, U of F, and
FAMU, can all provide a tremendous base of knowl-
edge to launch you into a specialty career. Check out
the web at HORTJOBS.com and see current agricul-
tural job listings. Fifth grade words like CONSERVA-
TION and RENEWABLE RESOURCES have turned
into high paying careers developing bio-digestors, de-
salination equipment, recycling tools and waste man-
agement facilities. Whether you desire to become a
bio-chemist or just want to grow a few tomatoes in a 5
gallon bucket; think positive, do the best job you can,
persevere, think for yourself, but think OF others
along the way

So as the June storms roll through:
Find a new flower, shrub or tree,
plant it close to your porch with some TLC.
Bring it food when it looks oh so sad,
add a sprinkle of water to make it feel glad,
that it has someone who sees it's potential to grow,
from a seed-Lto an adult, they're the same don't you
know! Enjoy your walk in the garden as you now
see all of the potential before your eyes!

their hard work and dedication to the team all season,
and for everything they done for the boys. (Thanks
for the shirts Coach Whitt! We appreciate it!)

The season may not have gone the way we all wanted
it to, but it was fun. The Bears fought hard all season,
never gave up and played their best. They took a lot of
hard falls during the season, but continued to work as
a team. I'm sure they are all going to practice harder
next year, continue to play hard and give it all they've
got, and come away with more wins next year!
To The Seniors, we are all going to miss you guys,
and wish you the best of luck in what you choose to
do.

Anderson Elementary Science Fair Winners


Julia Chesser, Grand Prize
Winner K-2


he Science Fair recent-
ly held at Anderson El-
ementary School was a huge
success. Students in Kinder-
garten through fifth grade had
a chance to show off their
knowledge of "Science in Our
World" by creating projects
that demonstrated how science
is involved in everything we
do. Students learned about
magnetism, plants, chemical
reactions, the human body,
and many other categories.


.. .' Awards were
given for the first, second and third
place winners in each grade level
and also two grand prize winners
(one for Kindergarten- Second
Grade and another for Grades 3-5).
Judges, Ms. Jeanine Collins, and
Ms. Holly Houghton had a very
hard time choosing the winners
from all the innovative entries. We
are grateful to the judges for their
donated time and expertise. Con-
gratulations to all participants
(and their supportive.parents and
families) for a great effort.

at Salatiga. In May they started orientation, then will
start the Language Study There are 9 levels of lan-
guage study. They have been through some culture
shock and still experiencing it. Karen says they have
fans but no AC., but it is pretty cool at night. They,
are beginning the dry season and they live near two
volcanoes! Keep John and Karen in your daily
prayers as they give of their lives to spread the Word
and do GOD'S will in Indonesia!
Our folks celebrating their births in May are: Brian
Ellison, Wayne Craig, Blake Boyington, Tripp
Mitchell and Wooduck (Herman) Wood! We have two
couples celebrating their anniversary's: Jeff and
Yvette Cooper and Wayne and Marcia Craig! Happy,
happy, happy to all :0)
Our youth Sunday School Teachers are Jeff and
Yvette Cooper! They pile bean bags around on the
floor and learn about GOD together. Pray for all our
youth as they struggle with the worldly life and the
walk of a Christian! Some of our young people have
been preparing the Sunday School breakfast for the
mixed adults class too! A special thank you to Timo-
thy Holden, Donnie Morrow, Leon and Brittany Hold-
en, and Brent Hoffman for preparing sausage bis-
cuits, huge sweet rolls, breakfast burritos, bacon, egg
and cheese biscuits, and other ggrreeaatt combina-
tions!
And who is' Stephanie Leavins? She came and truly
blessed each of us last week! She is an angel sent to
us from GOD, on this earth, to teach us to be thankful
for everything HE has given each us! Stephanie Leav-
ins was not suppose to live. Her doctors said when
she was born 21 years ago, she would not live through
the night! But GOD reached down, touched her little
life and made her. special! HE had a definite purpose
for her life! Stephanie was born with Muscular Dys-
trophy, and has spent her entire life in a wheelchair.
She has two arms and two legs, but has never had the
muscle control to use them. Stephanie has never
been able to.eat any foods.She has had a feeding tube
since birth! She has used this opportunity to inspire
and encourage audiences all across the country Her
courage and the joy she has in her life is contagious.
Her ministry is one of hope and encouragement for
all! She is thankful for her Mary Kay pink wheelchair
too! Stephanie said," GOD, her parents and that
wheelchair ga ve me a life"! She said her parents has
made her believe, she could do anything! She said the
one thing she wants to do when she gets to Heaven
one day is... not walk, but to hug her Mom and Dad!
We gripe, complain and fuss about so many things!
Stephanie shows us how to be content with what we
have and not to regret what we do not have. Her lov-
ing, humbles, thankful attitude. And shares her tal-
ent of singing with all of us!
Lots of love, hugs and smiles Sandy Coleman

Awards


LE~ In


The last nine weeks of school brought an end to the
second successful year of Kidbiz at Anderson Ele-
mentary School. One hundred forty-nine students in
grades 2-5 passed at least eighteen tests (least,80% ac-
curacy) and were presented prizes from the last conti-
nent on the trip around the world, Australia! Outback


hats were distributed and worn with pride as the stu-
dents were awarded at their grade level end-of-the-
year ceremonies. There were four classes that had
100% of the students meeting the goal: Mrs. Karr's
fourth grade and ALL three of Mrs. Durham's fifth


grade blocks! These 4 classes of students have had
100% participation during all four marking periods-
outstanding effort!


The faculty and staff members at Anderson Elemen-
tary are very proud of the effort that all second-fifth
grade students put forth and appreciate the year- long
support from their families. Kidbiz will be available
for students to use throughout the summer, at *
http://www.kidbiz3000.com. using their current log-
in and password information.

Congratulations again and have a great KIDBIZ sum-
mer!

RRMS Science Fair

The students at Ruth Rains Middle School participated
in a school-wide science fair. Much time was spent in
the research and application of these projects.

The Best of Fair project was done by Blake Apodaca.
Blake tested fluidized sand for security using three
variables: an air compressor, shop vac, and leaf blow-
er. The shop vac proved to be the most successful.

The Reserve Best of Fair project was done by Daniel
Thomas, who tested the human body for bacteria
growth. Congratulations to these and all the students
who participated in this year's fair.

BOYD: CORPS' TRI-STATE WATER
PLAN DOES NOT BALANCE NEEDS
OF ENTIRE ACF SYSTEM

Boyd to hold Congressional Forum on the impact of the
drought and low flows on Apalachicola River and Bay,
North Florida communities


WASHINGTON, D.C.-Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) expressed disappointment today with
the Biological Opinion released by the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service (USFWS) on the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers' Revised Interim Operations Plan (RIOP)
for water sharing between Florida, Georgia, and Al-
abama along the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint
(ACF) system. In the Biological Opinion, USFWS de-
termined that the water plan, allowing for flows as
low as 4,500 cubic feet per second (cfs), would be in ef-
fect for the next five years.

The new water plan also allows for more storage re-'
tention in upstream lakes to the detriment of down-
stream users. Additionally, both the Corps and US-
FWS have stated that the demands along the ACF sys-
tem are significant and those will only increase; yet
the new tri-state water plan fAils to address demand
management along the system.

"I am deeply concerned that the potential for histori-
cally low flows to the Apalachicola River for the next
five years could have devastating effects on our river,
our bay, and the people of North Florida," said Con-
gressman Boyd. "The Corps' most recent tri-state wa-
ter plan does not even come close to balancing the
needs of all of the users along the ACF system, and
that is what we should be working towards, instead of
interim approaches that reward the state of Georgia
for failing to plan for their water needs. The Fish and
Wildlife Service has even said that this RIOP is not
the answer for how water along the ACF should be
managed or allocated over the long term."

On Monday, July 21, 2008, Congressman Boyd will be
holding a Congressional Forum in Chattahoochee,
Florida, on the impact of the southeastern drought
and low water flows on the Apalachicola River and
Bay and North Florida's communities. Representa-
tives from the Corps and USFWS will be at the Con-
gressional Forum to hear from Florida's stakeholders
and local experts on the ACF system.

"The people of North Florida who depend on the
Apalachicola River and Bay for their livelihood must
be heard," Boyd stated. "I am eager for the Corps and
USFWS to hear firsthand from our oystermen,
shrimpers, and others along the river and bay who
have a tremendous stake in the ACF issue. Those of
us in North Florida are committed to making sure
that Florida's resources are protected. After years of
disputes, I will continue working and pushing on a lo-
cal, state, and federal level to see that a reasonable
and long term water management solution for the
ACF system is developed."
