UF Fees to

go up

(again)

UF Trustees voted to
hike tuition 15% next
year. This is split up
into a 6% increase for all
students, and an extra
9% for freshmen and
sophomores. The 9% in-
crease was approved in
an effort to "recruit fac-
ulty and boost research."
FSU is cutting staff by at
least 200 positions, and
is limiting enrollment by
2,000 students over last
year due to a $31 million
reduction in state fund-
ing.

^"J sk Joyce Tarnow what
S she wants for Christmas
this year, and her an-
swer will be "being on
the November 2008 ballot." Ms.
Tarnow is a Dixie County resi-
dent who is a passionate propo-
nent of the Florida Hometown
Democracy movement. She's so'
passionate that she was once ar-
rested in a South Florida Publix
parking lot for getting signatures
on petitions. Luckily, she's had
no problems with local stores
like Foodland and Hitchcocks,
who have been more congenial.

The Hometown Democracy
Movement is a grass-roots at-
tempt to get an amendment to
the Florida Constitution that
would require that any change to
a county's comprehensive plan
be approved by the voters before
it is enacted. The idea is to limit
the ability of local governments
to subvert the intent of compre-
hensive plans--which were intro-
duced in order to limit willy-nil-
ly land development--by chang-
ing the comprehensive plan at


will, often with the idea of in-
creasing the tax base. The
Hometown Democracy Move-
ment says it's fighting back
against the fact that developers
seem to get a much louder voice
in public meetings than the actu-
al voting public does.

Out of the 820,000 signatures
statewide that have been collect-
ed, over 500 were from Dixie
County Unfortunately, accord-
ing to Ms. Tarnow, "The legisla-

Mrs. Pizza

Injured at Graduation


Mrs. Filliponi, wife of
"Pizza" Joe Filliponi,
was proud to be attend-
ing her granddaughter's
graduation at Dixie
County High School on
Friday, May 30, 2008.
However, at the end of
the ceremony a terrible
accident occurred.

According to Mrs. Fil-
liponi, she was on the
visitor's bleachers, in
the middle section, and
has stood up in prepara-
tion to leave. In the press


of people vacating the
bleachers, Mrs. Filliponi
was accidentally nudged
off balance. The result-
ing tumble landed her in
the hospital for about
five days.
She suffered, as the re-
sult of her fall, fractured
ribs and vertebrae, a
punctured lung, and nu-
merous bruises.
She commended para-
medics Clay Locklear,
and Marie Priola on
their heroic perfor-
mance in transporting
her to the hospital. She
was also pleased to re-
ceive a few calls from
Mark Rains, checking in
on her.
In all, Mrs. Filliponi is
recovering well, she says
the worst part is having to
wear a brace for 2 months.

Wildlife at the Library

dustry in thwarting our efforts
by passing legislation to deny
our right to petition and to have
our petitions fairly certified."

The Hometown Democracy
Movement filed a federal court
action in the Southern District
of Florida seeking the proper
certification of ballot status for
the FHD constitutional amend-
ment. The suit seeks placement
on the ballot as early as the No-
vember 2008 election through a
companion Motion for Prelimi-
nary Injunction filed with the
action. Ms. Tarnow is a plaintiff
in that suit.

Supporters of the FHD Petition,
including national ballot-access
expert Gary Sinawski, are opti-
mistic that the federal court will
object to what the State and its
allies in the development indus-
try have been doing to the citi-
zens' right to petition their gov-
ernment through the initiative
process, and will redress the bal-
ance in favor of the citizens be-
ing able to access the ballot with


FHD sooner rather than later.

According to Florida Hometown
Petition co-author, Palm Beach
attorney Lesley Blackner, elected
officials have been too easily
swayed by developers, and polls
have consistently shown that
when the FHD measure gets on
the ballot, it will be approved by
the required 60% of voters.

The measure is not without crit-
ics, however: Leonard Gilroy of
the James Madison Institute dis-
misses the ability of the voter to
understand complex zoning is-
sues, "Most voters can't possibly
do the research necessary to cast
an informed ballot oh every sin-
gle development proposal in
their community."

Ms. Tarnow places her faith in
the wisdom of the common citi-
zen, rather than "paid experts,"
and says that the movement is
simply "seeking justice for the
democratic process."


"BIG BROWN"

HAS ANOTHER BAD DAY


A pickup truck crashed into the back end of a UPS truck on Wednesday at the
intersection of CR 349 and Hinton Landing.
See BROWN page 3


DON CURTIS: BECAUSE HE-IS ONE OF US


She old adage, "To
whom much is
given, much is re-
quired", pretty
much sums up the call to
service that Don Curtis
sees as the reason why
he chose to get in the
race to be our next State
Representative for Dis-
trict 10. Curtis comes
from a family with deep
roots in agriculture, re-
calling the good times
spent while growing up
on his grandmother's
farm and learning values
that have made him to be
an independent conserv-
ative.

He is a forester by profes-
sion and owns a farm in
Lake Bird (Taylor Coun-
ty) where he cares for
horses, cattle, and timber
with his wife of 28 years,
Michele. Curtis is also
an avid hunter and
sportsman, frequently
fishing and hunting with
his two sons, Ray and
Clay.


Don Curtis owns The
Forestry Company, em-
ploying twenty people
and providing forestry
services to public and
private landowners in all
ten counties within
House District 10. He un-
derstands making a pay-
roll, paying his taxes,


and the rest of the chal-
lenges to making a busi-
ness successful. Curtis
also partners with the
state Division of
Forestry to help contain
wildfires..

2007 Dixie County Advocate


A few tips for McCain
Senator John McCain can look forward to a
hard-fought campaign between now and November.
Despite being the less than ideal choice for hard line
conservatives, he is facing an opponent who has posi-
tioned himself somewhere to the left of Al Franken,
and who has similar qualifications for the nation's
highest office.
Well, shouldn't that leave McCain in pretty
good shape? Perhaps it should, but it won't. Senator
Barack Obama has amassed a following not unlike
those who adored Elvis a half-century ago, the differ-
ence being that hero-worship of an entertainer who
actually served a hitch in the military and wasn't an
anti-war activist doesn't really have any adverse ef-
fect on national security .. :. .
Give John McCain a guitar and he might fig-
ure out how to pick "Wildwood Flower" after a few
weeks, but so what? We don't need an entertainer in
the White House. Bill Clinton came a lot closer than
necessary, but he was a Jeffersonian statesman com-
pared to Obama.
Senator Obama has a gift of gab, but thus far
about all he's had to offer is "change," and whenever
he has gotten more specific, his ideas sound down-
right Marxist. That resume shouldn't be all that hard
to beat; but as I have pointed out before, Obama is
more rock star than politician and commands a fol-
lowing who question not his questionable qualifica-
tions for the office he seeks.
McCain is right in staying the course in Iraq
and Afghanistan. Things look a lot better there than
they did two years ago, and we could still achieve a
positive outcome for our efforts. Obama wants to cut
and run, and if he is allowed to turn Iraq into anoth-
er Vietnam we will be feeling the repercussions for a
long time.
The price of gas and diesel has finally shot up
far enough, fast enough that the politicians can no
longer avoid talking about it. McCain has some good
ideas, one of which is to make the speculators who
have been driving the price up put at least some of
their money up front. They're betting on prices in-
creasing, let them take some risks while they're at it.
He also likes the idea of offshore drilling, but he's op-
posed to drilling in ANWAR. If he'd go up there and
look at that desolate place, he'd realize that a few oil
rigs would not be damaging any pristine wilderness.
Obama wants to raise taxes on the oil companies, like
that's going to result in cheaper gas for the American
consumer.
As for the economy, it's grinding down danger-
ously, whether or not anyone in Washington wants to
admit it. Meanwhile, inflation is taking off big-time,
largely due to the rapidly escalating price of crude.
oil. One more reason to drill offshore and in ANWAR.
Health care has become a major issue. Mc-
Cain says he has a plan for providing the advantages
of group insurance coverage to all Americans, which
sounds good, but we need to know some details. Oba-
ma, of course, wants socialized medicine, despite the
shortcomings of government systems in Canada and
Europe.
Illegal immigration is a problem that's getting
worse fast enough that some politicians are now pan-
dering to the illegals, obviously in anticipation of the
time at which these people will acquire voting privi-
leges. McCain currently represents Arizona in the
Senate, and that state is one of the hardest-hit by ille-
gal immigration. The senator needs to get a lot more
hard-nosed than he's been on that score. Drag out
some statistics on how much it costs to provide,
health benefits and bi-lingual education to these ille-
gals, plus what it costs to provide for the ones that
wind up in jail.
John McCain doesn't have a snowball's
chance on a hot July afternoon of getting the Islamic
vote, not when he's running against someone who has
already been endorsed by any number of Islamic
groups. He needs to hammer away on the danger of
an expanding Muslim population in this country and
mention the mess this has created in European coun-
tries. It can't cost him the votes of anyone who would-
n't have voted against him anyway.
Just a few ideas for the GOP candidate. If I
think of any more, I'll be glad to share them; and
meanwhile, I might come up with some for Senator
Obama.

Then Comcast. And now AT&T
is jumping on the internet me-
tering bandwagon. What does that mean? It means
that for $49.99 or whatever it is you're paying them per
month for your internet access, they will allow you
some internet. If you are a normal, under 30 user
who watches YouTube and maybe uses BitTorrent to
download music or video files, you'd better get out
your pocketbook. Anything that the company deems
to be "excess" usage will be billed extra. A single Net-
flix download would use up the entire bandwidth al-
lowance for a low-end Comcast user.

Did you know China has
faster, cheaper internet than
the U.S. does? So does Ice- r .I
land and Portugal, and heck,
even CANADA! We invented
it...at least Al Gore says he
did... and we're the slowest
kid on the block. Typical
speeds in Japan are 30
TIMES faster than ours. In-
ternet in France is 8 times
faster than ours. It's embar-
rassing. Japan, Korea, Fin-
land and Sweden have the
fastest internet in the world. *
Japan, Korea and Sweden "
also have the cheapest ser-
vice, at just under $1.00 per
month per megabit. The average U.S. cost per megabit
is FIVE TIMES that.

Three quarters of the internet in the U.S. is provided
by just five companies. Most places, like Dixie, don't
have a choice of high-speed provider. They're lucky if
they even have high-speed access at all. There is not
enough competition in most markets, and the big play-
ers are fighting tooth, nail ,and lobbyist to keep it that
way. Now the "big five" are going to start cutting us
.off. or slowing us down if we want to use what we're
paying for? They're even taking bribes from certain
sites and providers to make their data flow faster than
other ones....and therefore slowing down any site that
doesn't provide the extra "speed money" You, the con-
sumer, are never told that your surfing is being slowed
down so that someone else can get to a bribe-paying
site faster. Google the "net neutrality" movement if
you're interested in this phenomenon. It will make


Editor-
We do have an energy
crisis in this country, but
it isn't that we don't gen-
erate enough electricity
or have enough gasoline
or diesel fuel. Our crisis
,is that too many people
waste these forms of en-
ergy, or, in some cases,
shouldn't have any
amount of gasoline due
them. Do you think this
sounds extreme? Let's
just consider for a
minute.
Let's just forget about
all this equality nonsense
for now and look at some
examples. There are, af-
ter all, lots of very unde-
serving folk in these
United States of Ameri-
ca. Consider the follow-
ing. healthy males be-
tween 20 and 50 who have
never volunteered to
serve in the armed forces
of our nation. Any male
welfare recipient of over
two years duration. Any-
one who does not speak
fluid english. The truly
obese, those of over 40%
body fat. Those with twd
or more DUIs. All illegal
aliens. High school grad-
uates who can read but


have IQs under 100. Sin-
gle females over 22 except
for widows. Single males
over 22 years of age with
sufficient income to sup-
port two adults. Convict-
ed felons who have ever
used an illicit drug after
age 22. All drug addicts.
There, how many of
you think the world
wouldn't be a lot better if
those listed above could-
n't purchase one drop of
gasoline or diesel? If so,
you are definitely a liber-
al.
We definitely need gas
rationing. And we really
ought to have electricity
rationing, too. We do not
need size restrictions on
motor vehicles. If you
want to own and drive a
big Ford F-250 crewcab
pickup, that's fine with
me. Use your allotted
gasoline however you
wish, Vehicle types
would not figure into gas
allotment.
Provide incentives for
those who generate their
own electricity, or at least
some of it. A simple solar
oven is a decent stop to-
ward good citizenship.

The article "Bridge Dog Needs Forever Home", really
points up the need in Dixie County for a County sup-
ported Humane Society Instead of spending some
$135,000 plus each year to gather, then euthanize ani-

you mad, guaranteed.

I have satellite internet at home. Satellite internet
companies promise "blazing fast speeds" and mine is
pretty fast, but what the annoying chick in the com-
mercial doesn't tell you is that you're subject to what
they call a "fair use" policy This means that if you
use more than 200MB (for reference, one 10 minute
YouTube video is about 100MB) ,a day, they slow you
down to dial up speed. For 24 hours. It stinks, but if
you live in the boonies, it's all you can get, and I un-
derstand, their satellite can only do so much. (One
would think, though, that they would legally have to
make sure that they're not making like an airline and
overbooking their capacity).

makes you...not afraid, but
conscious that clicking on

It stifles productivity and

Our own


"Slick Willy"


Florida is special. Dixie
County is very
special.And now with
the, behind the back, last
minute attempt by Rep.
Will Kendrick to put a
target on our fine coastal
areas for the Developer
chums of his to once
again grab for them-
selves. The term Special
Interest comes to mind.
Rep. Kendrick, aka:
"Slick Willy" should be
ashamed of himself for
this blatant attempt at de-
ceit and trickery, not
just of Florida Folks, like
you and I, but of his fel-
low legislators as well.
Have we not learned
our lesson when it comes
to destroying the Coastal
Sea Grasses that help
protect us all from storm
damage.
Sounds easy to the shal-
low minds that want to
grab the unspoiled coast
and put up developments
and then when a storm
comes along and they get
kicked in the pants, we,
Taxpayers, once again
will be requested to dig
in our puny pockets to
cut another check to the
chums of Rep. Kendrick,
and his ilk cause they
took a hit. I for one am
tired of it. And sneaky
people like Mr. Kendrick.,


Thanks to some sharp
eyed DIXIE FOLK, this
dishonest attempt to sub-
vert the intentions of a
well written piece of leg-
islation has seen the light
of day
Id like to see Mr.
Kendrick, Slick.Willy,
come to DIXIE COUNTY
and explain his reason-
ing for his shameful ac-
tions towards the very
people he is supposed to
represent. The Court
House steps in front of
The Ten Commandments
, (Thou Shalt Not Lie)
would be a nice place to
chat. Watch for lightning
strikes, though.'
Rep.Kendrick does not
represent me, at all, in
this matter. Nor many of
my neighbors and
friends. Just who does he
represent ?
Voting time will be
back soon and I wont for-
get this deceit by him.
Please contact Gov.
Crist to veto CS/HB 7059
at charlie.crist@myflori-
da.com
It only takes a minute. I
know I will let my voice
be heard. Maybe a quick
message to SLICK
WILLY KENDRICK is in
order, also.

Bad Day


On Wednesday. June 11, 2008 at 11:47 A.M. a UPS
truck had stopped at the intersection of 349 and 346a.
The truck had been travelling southward was prepar-
ing to execute a left turn onto 346a when a '96 Ford
Ranger failed to stop and collided with the rear of the
UPS truck.

The driver of the Ranger, a Mr. Beck of Pasadena,
CA, received minor injuries and was not transported
to the hospital. The driver of the UPS truck was tak-
en to North Florida Regional Hospital to be treated
for non incapacitating injury

Mr. Beck was issued a citation for careless driving.

CFO Sink returns six-figure check to
Gainesville Resident
GAINESVILLE Florida Chief Financial Officer
Alex Sink today returned a check for nearly $160,000
in unclaimed property to a Gainesville real estate de-
veloper along with a reminder about the importance
of regularly checking Florida's unclaimed property
Web site, www.FLTreasureHunt.org.
As CFO, Sink oversees the state's Bureau of Un-
claimed Property, which holds nearly eight million,
unclaimed property accounts valued at $1.5 billion.
"With millions of accounts, the chances are good we
are holding your cash or the cash of someone you
know," said CFO Sink. "We do our best to find and
notify owners, but I encourage all Floridians to visit
our Web site to see if we are holding your cash or
property."
G.W. Robinson, owner of G.W. Robinson Builders,
Inc., in Gainesville, was contacted by CFO Sink's .
bureau in March of this year regarding $159,403.19
in unclaimed cash, mostly from dormant securities
that had been turned over to the state. "I am so
grateful to CFO Alex Sink and her staff for reuniting
me with my unclaimed funds," said G.W. Robinson.
"I hope Floridians will take note of my story, and
check to see if the state of Florida is holding lost
treasure for their friends and family members."
Florida is considered orie of the nation's most effec-
tive and efficient unclaimed property programs, re-
turning nearly $172 million last fiscal year to Floridi-
ans on more than 254,000 approved claims.
Currently there are 82,582 unclaimed property ac-
counts for a total of $9.2 million in Alachua County,
7,963 accounts for $782,531 in Bradford County, 55,960
accounts for $6.9 million in Marion County, 1,698 ac-
counts totaling $156,242 million in Union County,
6,275 accounts totaling $1.1 million in Gilchrist Coun-
ty, and 10,883 accounts totaling $1.1 million in Levy
County. Unclaimed Property can be claimed free of
charge, at any time, by visiting
www.fltreasurehunt.org, or by calling 1-88-VALU-
ABLE.
Until claimed, unclaimed property is deposited into
the State School Trust Fund, and allocated by the Leg-
islature for education. More than $1.5 billion has
benefited Florida public schools since the program's
inception in 1961.


Quit Doc Research and Education Foundation to
Form Tobacco-Free Partnership in Dixie County


The Quit Doc Research and Edu-
cation Foundation is spearhead-
ing the effort to limit youth expo-
sure to secondhand smoke in Dix-
ie County by forming a Tobacco-
Free Partnership among local
businesses and community leaders.
"The purpose of the establishing a to-
bacco-free partnership is to look for cre-
ative ways to reduce the amount of to-
bacco smoke that children are exposed
to at home and in public places," reports
Dr. Barry Hummel, a Pediatrician, and
co-founder the non-profit foundation.
"The vast majority of secondhand
smoke exposure occurs in homes and
cars. We need to do a significantly bet-
ter job of educating parents about the
dangers of secondhand smoke, and the
health problems that occur in children'
that are exposed to tobacco smoke."
Dr. Hummel went on to add that "local
business and community leaders can
help to educate the public in two ways.
First, and most importantly, they can ex-
pand smoking restrictions on their busi-
ness property that go beyond the current
restrictions mandated by the Florida
Clean Indoor Air Act. For example, they
can choose to prohibit smoking within
50 or 100 feet of their business entrance,
or even ban smoking altogether in pri-
vately-owned parking lots. While public
smoking represents a fairly small per-
centage of secondhand smoke exposure,
these types of restrictions do help to re-
inforce the idea that smoking is not so-


cially acceptable."
"The second way that business
and community leaders can help
is by displaying posters or other
materials that help educate the
public of the dangers of second-
hand smoke. Such materials explain the
reason behind the decision to expand
smoking restrictions on their business
premises. Unless we do a better job as a
community of delivering that type of in-
formation to parents, it will be very hard

Bronson Opens Fresh From Florida

^ Program To Tomato Industry


.'ALLAHASSEE Florida
agriculture and Consumer Ser-
* ""_ ces Commissioner Charles H.
r son is reaching out to growers, dis-
tributors and retailers of Florida grown
tomatoes to help restore confidence in
the state's tomato crop.

In an effort to assist with the sale of
Florida tomatoes now that the areas in
production have been declared safe, the
Department will offer Fresh from Flori-
da labels and/or point of purchase ma-
terials upon request. Anyone involved
in the production or sale of Florida
tomatoes can call the Division of Mar-
keting and Development at (850) 488-
9948 or e-mail: fapc@doacs.state.fl.us.
The logos are also temporarily being
placed on the Department's web site:
www.florida-agriculture.com for distrib-
utors and retailers to download. There
will be no charge for the requested ma-
terials or for

be available
for ten days.

logo, busi-
nesses are
encouraged
to contact the
Division of

Agricultural


Promotional Campaign (FAPC) mem-
bership information.

On Tuesday, the Food and Drug Admin-
istration put the areas of Florida cur-
rently in tomato production on the
"safe to eat" list indicating they could
not be the source of a salmonella out-
break that has impacted predominantly
western states. Tomato harvesting is
currently underway in the Quincy, Pal-
metto and Ruskin areas.

Bronson says he wants to be proactive,
in getting the word out that these toma-
toes are safe, wholesome, and grown un-
der the strictest regulations in the na-
tion. He says by using the logos, retail-
ers can show consumers that the toma-
toes came from Florida.

"We want to reach out to make sure
our tomatoes.not only make it to the re-
tail shelves but also into consumer's
shopping carts." Bronson said. "When
they see the Fresh from Florida logo,
they will know exactly where the toma-
toes were grown."

The Department's Division of Fruit and
Vegetables has been busily issuing cer-
tificates with each shipment of toma-
toes, indicating the harvest date and lo-
cation. Nearly four million 25 pound
cartons have been certified since Tues-
day afternoon.
"That is indicative of the popularity of
Florida tomatoes," Bronson said. "I'm
pleased these tomatoes were put on the
"safe to eat" list, it would have been a
tragedy if they had been wasted."

Mayo Student
enters ALEx
program

Aaron Lindsey of Mayo, a
Lafayette High School
grad and FSU student, is
attending A.L.Ex., the
Academy of Leadership
Excellence program with-
in the Florida Department
of Financial Services.

"I commend the 2008 inau-
gural class of the A.L.Ex.
program for their academ-
ic achievement and their
commitment to public ser-
vice," said CFO Alex Sink,
who oversees the Depart-
ment of Financial Ser-,
vices. 'As a state, we need
to do everything we can to
encourage and mentor
our young people, provid-
ing a pathway for public
service and a lifetime of
success."

The Academy of Leader-
ship and Excellence pro-
gram will provide real-
world work experience,
professional development,
and career opportunities
in public service for Flori-
da's best and brightest
university students. Stu-
dents will receive substan-
tive and challenging work
assignments from their
assigned mentor and have
their work evaluated on a
professional level.


."This is a great opportu-
nity for our students to
gain experience that will
help give them a competi-
tive edge," said FAMU
President James H. Am-
mons. "The students rec-
ognized today by CFO
Sink are some of our best
and brightest. We are
hoping that they will seri-
ously consider careers in
Florida and in state gov-
ernment. These are stu-
dents who have the poten-
tial to become the future

If your kid is typing like
the above, odds are they
are not uberl337 hackers,
they are just trying to
seem cool. The above
translates to: My grand-

were wondering...

If you kid can type and
read like this, you might
need to worry. As you can
see, (or can't?) it looks
like an unintelligible
sting of random charac-
ters. It takes time to type
like this, and is usually.
done to hide something.
It would be worth looking
in to. The translation for
the above is "You call
that a barrel roll? This is
a barrel roll!"

If your kid has an exten-
sive knowledge of leets-
-peak, you might want to
keep an eye on their in-
ternet habits, just to be
safe. Leetspeak does not
constitute being a hacker,
it simply shows an inter-
est in the subject.

Wow! That took more
space than I thought it
would... Well, we'll call
this the end for now. Just
remember, jumping.to con-
clusions and overreacting
won't solve any budding
hacker problems. Next
week I'll provide some
ideas that might.

A THANK YOU FROM THE HEART

Words cannot begin to describe the gratitude and ap-
preciation that our family has for the people of Dixie
County On May 3, five young men came to the aid of
our daughter, Kara markham. Were it nor for their
courageous efforts and the expertise of Dixie Coun-
ty's Paramedics, kara might not be with us today.
Their efforts, along with the many prayers from peo-
ple the county and country over, Kara's life was
saved. Jason Wilde, Matt Beckham, John "Buddy"
Corbin, Riley Corbin, and Michael Phelps, you guys
have Kara's and her family's gratitude and sincere
thanks for all you did for her that early morning. You
young men are to be commended for your efforts and
in our eyes, you are angels. Thank you so much for
all you did for her until the Medical Response ar-
rived. As we understand, Gary and Sabra Nave, along
with Brian Wright and Leslie Brannin, were the ones
to arrive next and attend to Kara. We thank you all
for your knowledge, training, and the care you gave
Kara. Dixie County is truly blessed with a great Am-
bulance Service. We are also grateful that our county
has access to an emergency flight program so that
Kara was able to get to the hospital as fast as possible.

Kara and her family are so thankful to live in a coun-
ty that has praying people. To all of you who send
.prayers heavenward for her, we can never than you
enough. Pastors David Downing and Vaughn Farnell,
we thank so much for coming to the hospital and
praying for her and her family We firmly believe it
was the power of all the prayers from everyone that
helped Kara recover so fast. She is home and is doing
as well as can be expected for someone with her in-
juries. She, as her doctor, stated, has many, many
broken bones. Praise be to God, they are all healing
and she is making progress each day. She still has a
long way to to to be back on her feet and independent
again but we know that God will heal her completely
when He is ready We are just so thankful to have her
here with us, that broken bones seem small in rela-
tion to what could have ben. Thank you to all those
who have prayed for Kara. We ask that you continue
to keep her and her family in your prayers. May God
bless all of you as He has blessed Kara and her fami-
ly

We would also like to thank all those who visited with
Kara and her family while she was in the hospital, at
the rehab hospital, and at home Those visits helped
each of us to deal with our trauma a little better. To
the women of Central Baptist Church, Geraldine Fil-
mon, Haley Herring BoKaye and Nathan Wright, and
Dorothy Cassidy, we appreciate the meals that you
cooked for ug. Dixie County is also blessed with good
cooks. Thank you again for taking thetimef'to dothisg
service for us. It was all deeply appreciated. Leon
Wright and Adam Stinson, we thank you for the ramp
you took time to build for Kara, it was been well used.
We appreciate all that you did to help make things
easier for Kara. Leon and Dixie Wright, thank you
for the mattresses and the pump plus the extras, it
was all used and appreciated. Jenny Herring and
Terrie Markham, thanks for what you supplied to
help our hospital time be more comfortable.

A very special thanks to the Church of Christ of
Cross City and 5th Street Church of Christ in Crystal
River for your donations of money They came at a
much needed time. May God bless all of your people
for caring enough to give. Also we wish to express
our appreciation for all the help that Buddy Lamb
gave our family during this time. Kara says, "Thanks
Uncle Buddy, I love you!"

Kara and her family wish to express our thanks to all
who visited, prayed, sent cards, made phone calls,
sent food, gave money, and time to Kara and her fami-
ly during our time of need. We can never thank
everyone enough for caring for us to do all that you
did. If we have left anyone out that we haven't per-
sonally thanked, please forgive us and know that we
do thank you for whatever you did. Our prayers are
the God will bless each and everyone who cared
enough about Kara and her family to do whatever you
did. Please know, each and every one, that our sin-
cere gratitude is given to all and we will never forget
that you cared.

God's Blessings to all,
With love, Kara Markham and family

tinuing to receive Cran-
ioSacral Therapy from a
CST trained, licensed
massage therapist in
High Springs, Florida.
The Hamilton's insur-
ance company, AvMed,
continues to refuse to
cover this viable therapy
AvMed refuses to ac-
knowledge this therapy
even though the state of
Florida's Board of Profes-
sional Licensure ap-
proves this therapy for
it's state licensed mas-
sage, occupational and
physcial therapists. The
Hamilton's are having to
cover the expense of this
therapy on their own'.

Every year in the United
States, roughly 20,000
Harrington rod implanta-
tion surgeries are per-
formed on patients with
scoliosis. Mariah's
surgery that AvMed
Health plans approved to
cover would have cost
that company $250,000.
Therapy for Mariah is a
fraction of that cost. Yet,
AvMed denies coverage
despite the risks to Mari-
ah's life.

Every year, about forty
percent of the people
who have this surgery for
the correction of scolio-
sis are legally defined as
permanently disabled for
the rest of their lives.
Even worse, follow up x-
rays performed on these
individuals reveal that,
an average of 22 years af-
ter the surgery was per-
formed, their scoliosis


has returned to pre-oper-
ative levels.

The Harrington rods in-
serted into these individ-
uals spines will either
bend, break loose from
the wires, or worse,
break completely in two,
necessitating further sur-
gical intervention and re-
moval of the rods. Once


the rod is removed, cor-
rosion (rust) is found on
two out of every three.
"Post surgical complica-
tions include the syn-
drome of inappropriate
antidiuretic hormone,
pancreatitis, superior
mesentaric artery syn-
drome, ileus, pneumotho-
rax, hempthorax, chy-
lothorax, and fat em-
bolism. Urinary tract in-
fections, wound infec-
tions and of course the
above mentioned hard-
ware failure. Orthopedic
surgeons do not address
these complications with
their patients because
they happen so often".
Curr Opin 2001 Feb;13:13-
14.

Mariah's parents, Chad
and Shana Hamilton,
have had to research very
carefully all the risks as-
sociated with the recom-
mended surgical treat-'
ment of scoliosis with
Harrington rods. The
couple found that surgi-
cal treatment for scolio-
sis should be the last re-
sort after all other op-
tions have failed. Sur-
geons won't tell you that
there are other options to
explore. Their focus is
on surgery Also, insur-
ance companies do not
cover those other op-
tions.

It is not uncommon for
insurance companies to
pay all or a large part of
a very expensive surgical
procedure such as Har-
rington rod and spinal fu-
sion. Of course, the end
result of surgery is not
always the best result. In
fact to assume that insur-
ance reimbursement of a
particular procedure or
medical service is tanta-
mount to.it being the
best treatment can be
very costly assump-
tions in terms of
health. Insurance com-
panies are not medical


or diagnostic entities. In
fact their ultimate goal is
to their share holders not
to their policy holders.
Mariah's parents are ulti-
mately responsible for
her health and well-be-
ing. Chad and Shana
Hamilton have found the
other option for treating
Mariah's scoliosis, Cran-
ioSacral Therapy


CranioSacral Therapy is
Mariah's choice. Cran-
ioSacral Therapy is a
gentle hands on approach
to release any restriction
or pressure within the
spine, from the cranium
down to the sacrum. The
function of the cran-
iosacral system has a di-
rect impact on our
health. CranioSacral
Therapy improves the dy-
namic activity involving
cranial bones, meningeal
membranes, cerebral
spinal fluid, the intracra-
nial vascular system, the
movement of body fluids
and the function of total
body connective tissues.

Massage therapists, occu-
pational therapists, phys-
ical therapists, chiroprac-
tors, acupuncturists and
medical doctors are the
licensed professionals
that receive training and
certification through the
Upledger Institute. John
Upledger, D.O., O.M.M., is
the President and Med-
ical Director of The Up-
ledger Institute based in
Palm Beach Gardens,
Florida.

Dr. Upleder was named
the 'Most Innovative
Physician' of our decade
by Time Magazine, April
2001 issue. John Upledger
was the assisting surgeon
in a very delicate neuro-
surgery During the oper-
ation he was able to pal-
pate a very distinct pulse
separate from the heart
rate and lymphatic sys-
tem. After the surgery
was completed, Dr. Up-
ledger discussed his find-
ings with the Neurosur-
geon he was working
with.


This "new pulse" in-
spired Dr. John Upledger
to commit the past thirty
years of his life to re-
searching the effects that
this rythm has on the hu-
man body He is the
founder of CraniOSacral
Therapy and the Up-
ledger Institute.

The Upledger Clinic
treats patients from
all over the world. Pa-
tients that come to
this clinic can be
treated with CST in
an individual therapy
session, or attend a
..' week long intensive
program. The Inten-
sive Program, or I.R
has helped Mariah's
spine to start to un-
wind. She has had
four to six licensed
therapists working
with her at one time.
Mariah's spine was al-
- ready compromised
from her congenital
scoliosis, she has abnor-
mally shaped vertebrae.
The surgery she endured
last year just exacerbated
the spinal curvature.

Surgery of any kind is
traumatic for the human
body It should always be
a last resort. Mariah has
endured 14 major correc-
tive surgeries. During
those operations, sur-
geons have positioned
Mariah's body for con-
vienance and access. She
lay restricted for extend-
ed periods of time until
the surgeries were com-
pleted. Each time she has
been intubated for
surgery and put on a ven-
tilator this has jammed
her vertebrae, like a
jammed boxcar effect on
her spine.

CranioSacral Therapy
has helped release the re-
strictions through Mari-
ah's entire craniosacral
structure. The Upledger
clinic treats not only pa-
tients with scoliosis or
post surgical trauma, but
also treats clients that
are experiencing central
nervous system dysfunc-
tion; (ie, fibromyalgia,
cerebral palsy, head in-
juries, siezure disorders,
to name a few).

It is still to be seen
whether AvMed Health
Plans will cover this ther-
apy for Mariah. Please
call, email, or write your
local lawmakers and re-
quest some help for Mari-
ah in her fight for insur-
ance coverage. She is
growing taller, proof that
her spine is responding
to the therapy of her
choice.

From CURTIS, page 1

He has served as the As-
sistant Director for the
Division of Forestry
along with being a volun-
teer firefighter prior to
starting up his own busi-
ness. His past public ser-
vice for the Division of
Forestry includes over-
seeing 1,000 employees
with the responsibility
for managing public
land, wildfire suppres-
sion, and emergency dis-
aster support.

Curtis has also felt the
sting of rising fuel
prices, but sees longer-
term opportunity for
north Florida. "We have
the land, the water, and
the know-how to make o
this part of Florida vi-
brant with newer ways to
secure energy so we do
not have to depend so
much on Middle East
oil", says Curtis. "These
new sources of fuel do
not require corn or other
food stock but are taken
from wood and various
plant materials. Without.
a doubt,, there is an enor-
mous amount of industry
potential that can help a
lot of families in District
10."

When

he sees
that a
strong connection exists
between job growth and
better education. In fact,
while serving on the
board of the Aucilla

acting as an advisor with

ty College, Curtis has -
seen firsthand the issues
and challenges facing our
young people and the
skills they need to com-

and Floridians in the ur-
ban areas have consis-
tently sought our water.
Last summer, Don Curtis
was appointed by Gover-
nor Charlie Crist to the
Governing Board of the
Suwannee River Water
Management District.
That experience has
shown that we need his
leadership in the Legisla-
ture to keep our water

area of the state.

Curtis' background and
experience in business,
government, and volun-
teer duties has prepared
him to serve the people of
North Florida. The
Florida Forestry Associa-
tion and Forest Landown-
ers' Association have
both endorsed Don Cur-
tis. Senator Charlie Dean
and the Florida House
leadership have given
their support to Curtis'
candidacy as well. Sena-
tor Dean said in an earli-
er release: "the choice in
the 10th House District
ultimately comes down to
judgment and integrity,
and in my view, Don Cur-
tis has an undeniable
edge. I wholeheartedly
endorse Don Curtis for

look for-

Curtis
wants to give back to his
community what he has
been given and relying
on God's help with family
and community support,
he hopes to serve as our
next Representative for
District 10.

Don is a member of
Pleasant Grove Baptist

He knows that the con-

THIRD CIRCUIT BAR

HOLDS

ANNUAL MEETING


On Friday evening (June
13) in Live Oak, the Third
Judicial Circuit Bar As-
sociation gathered at
Camp Weed for the
group's 2008 Annual
Meeting and Dinner.
There were approximate-
ly 150 attorneys and
guests in attendance at
the annual event. The
Third Judicial Circuit
Bar Association is a
group made up of attor-
neys and judges who are
members of the Florida
Bar and who practice in
the Third Judicial Cir-
cuit. The Third Judicial
Circuit encompasses Co-
lumbia, Dixie, Hamilton,
Lafayette, Madison,
Suwannee and Taylor
counties.

The Third Circuit Bar
had a memorable evening
as it celebrated a home-
coming of sorts. The
theme fo teeVin'g's
festivities was "Celebrat-
ing the Past, Present and
Future." The group rec-
ognized those attorneys
who have been members
of the bar for 30+, 40+
and 50+ years. The group
paid special recognition
to its two longest practic-
ing bar members, Her-
bert Darby and John Nor-
ris. Mr. Darby and Mr.
Norris have been mem-
bersof the Florida Bar
and practicing attorneys
for 59 years. Mr. Darby is
a partner in the Lake
City law firm of Darby,
Peele, Bowdoin and
Payne. Mr. Norris is a
partner in the Lake City
law firm of Norris and
Norris.

The bar also passed a
Resolution honoring the


legacy of another one of
North Central Florida's
legal icons, Ernest Page,
Jr. of Madison. Mr. Page
passed away in,June of
2006. Mr. Page's son,
Ernest Page, III (of Madi-
son), and grandson,
Ernest Page, IV (of Dowl-
ing Park), are also attor-
neys practicing in the
Third Circuit. Both were
present at the event, as
well as Mr. Page's widow,
Margaret, to accept the
Resolution in honor of
Mr. Page.

Other highlights of the
evening included recog-
nizing the Third Circuit's
past Florida Bar Board of
Governor's Representa-
tives, and the election of
the 2008-09 Third Circuit
officers and board. Greg
Parker who has served as
the Third Circuit's Board
'of Governors Representa-
tive since 2002 handed
that honor over to Clay
Schnitker of Madison.
Todd Hingson, an Assis-
tant State Attorney in
Lake City, was elected
President of the associa-
tion. A.J. Decker, of the
Decker Law Firm in Live
Oak, was elected Vice
President. Kyle McLeod,
of the Public Defender's
Office in Live Oak, was
elected Treasurer, and
Kendra Hinton, of the Of-
fice of Criminal Conflict
and Civil Regional Coun-
sel in Lake City, was
elected Secretary

The Third Judicial Cir-
cuit Bar Association is
dedicated to promoting
professionalism and con-
geniality among the bar
in North Central Florida.

FWC offers
unique
hunting
opportunities

The FWC is providing
sportsmen mobility-im-
paired hunts, supervised
youth hunts, family
hunts, quail hunts, and
track vehicle and airboat
hunts on wildlife man-
agement areas (WMAs).
Worksheets for these quo-
ta hunts are available
from FWC regional of-
fices and at
MyFWC.com/hunting
under "Quota hunt per-
mit worksheet." Applica-
tions for the random *
drawing may be submit-
ted beginning at 10 a.m.
(EDT) June 25 to July 9.
These applications may
be submitted at wildlifeli-
cense.com, at tax collec-
tors' offices or at any li-
cense agent.

Mobility-impaired hunts
are for people who re-
quire special equipment.
These hunts are not in-
tended for hunters, who
have Florida Disabled
Person Hunting and Fish-
ing Certificates, but
rather for those who are
permanently confined to
a wheelchair, people who
require the use of me-
chanical aids (crutches
and walkers) to walk or
those with complete sin-
gle-leg amputations.
Another unique hunt is
for hunters 8-15 years old.
Camp Blanding and An-


drews WMAs in the
North Central Region of-
fer opportunities for non-
hunting adults to super-
vise young hunters on
public hunting areas
where the number of
hunters and the hunting
areas are rigidly con-
trolled to provide an opti-
mum learning experi-
ence and maximum safe-
ty

Family hunts are offered
on select WMAs. Appli-
cants age 18 or older may
apply for a permit. The
permit holder is required
to bring from one to two
children, ages 8-15. Un-
like the youth hunt, the
family hunt enables the
adult supervisor to hunt
with the children.

Permits to operate track
vehicles on the Roten-
berger, Everglades, Fran-
cis S. Taylor and Holey
Land WMAs and permits
to operate airboats on the
Everglades and Francis
S. Taylor WMAs are is-
sued in two random se-
lections.

A quota hunt permit will
be required to hunt quail
on the Blackwater WMA
Field Trial Area in the
Northwest Region. There
are two four-day hunts on
the Field Trial Area, with
a quota of three groups
per hunt. A group may
consist of up to three
hunters. Shooting hours
end at 3 p.m., and the bag
limit is 12 quail per
group per day.

Stealing from CVS


Not broke, but Seriously bent
A money-stretching column

By Kathy McKinney


"==Now a., .


I find that I actually save more money and spend less
on groceries and household items if I shop locally.
(Yes, this is a plug! Support your local grocery stores
who advertise with US!) But, if you're going to
Chiefland anyway, gaming the CVS system is fun and
is a great way to teach your kids frugality My
daughter Georgia LOVES to go to QVS and to figure
out the best deals. It's our special mother-daughter
shopping time.

If you're interested in reading up on the CVS system,
check out their website, or go to www.moneysaving-
mom.com. It's a great frugal website. She covers all
of the stores, not just CVS. You can find deals on
stuff at Walgreens, Winn Dixie, etc.

An extra freebie this week for those of you with.
high-speed internet at home (not at work, I'm not ad-
vocating goofing off!) Check out www.adperk.com.
It's a website that lets you earn magazine subscrip-
tions for watching little 30 second commercials. Af-
ter you've watched about 24 of them, you can sign up
for a free subscription to Popular Science, or Better
Homes and Gardens, and other popular magazines.
It took me about ten minutes to get my free subscrip-
tion to Popular Science. I figure that's a pretty good
deal!

O.K., it's not actually stealing, but sometimes it can
feel like it. The.CVS system can seem a little compli-
cated at first, but once you learn how it works, you
can stock up on toiletries and household items at
rock bottom prices, and sometimes for free.

The first thing to do is to sign up for a CVS card. You
can do this online, or at the store. After you become
a card member, CVS will start sending you sale pa-
pers and even email you. special coupons from time to
time.

Read the sale paper. You'll see it talk about "ECBs."
You want to buy the products that you need that will
give you the most ECBs and then pair them with the
best coupons that you can find.

An ECB is an "Extra Care Buck," a coupon that
prints out on your receipt after your CVS purchase.
You can spend an ECB buckat CVS just like real mon-
ey. The trick is to pair manufacturer's coupons, with
your ECBs to get items for the lowest price possible.

For instance, this week you could Buy 1 Tylenol
Arthritis, 8 hour, rapid release, extra strength, or EZ
tabs 20-24 ct at $3.99-$4.49), Get $2 ECBs (Limit 1)
Use $2/1 (that means, $2.00 off of one item) coupon or
$1/1 from recent inserts and stack with $1.50/1
coupon currently printing out from the card scan- ;-
ners in the store. Your purchase turns out free plus
possible overage after coupons and ECBs! Whew!
That's a little complicated!

Here's another idea: Buy 2 Cross Action Toothbrush-
es at $5.99 and use B1G1 (Buy one, get one free)
coupon from 05/17 insert (in the Gainesville Sun)
You'll pend $5.99 plus tax and get $6 ECBs back. You
made a penny profit!

Lots of times, CVS will make it simpler for you. This
week you can buy one Listerine Smart Rinse at $3.49
and get $3.49 in ECBs back. It's free! That's pretty
easy If you have a coupon, you could actually make
a dollar or two.

There are only two big caveats: one is, don't buy any-
thing you didn't go to get. If you start wandering
through the store, you'll find something not on your
"coupon list" that will make you end up spending
more money than you intended. The second thing is
to not make a special trip. It's not worth the savings
to drive all the way to Chiefland just to save $2.00 on
mascara!

Please don't feed the
pelicans

There's a new rule from the Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) about feeding
pelicans. Don't do it.
Brown pelicans, due to their social,
nature, become dependent on dis-
carded fish and fish scraps. The
birds will often congregate in
places where the scraps are readily
available and rely on the scraps as
a major source of food.

In places where fish scraps are
available, such as at fish process-
ing facilities or fish markets, the
pelicans will arrive day after day to
eat, becoming habituated, accord-
ing to FWC biologists.

"Pelicans can become so used to
their daily "free" meals that they
won't migrate south during the
winter, and as a result become sick,
suffer frostbite on their feet or die
as a result of exposure," said
James Rodgers, a research biolo-
gist at the FWC's Gainesville Labo-
ratory

Another problem arises at fishing
piers or other spots where people
are cleaning fish or where fisher-
men toss the birds a few fish from
time to time. The large ones left
over after filleting a fish can get
stuck in the throat of the pelican,
eventually choking or starving the
bird.

"Hanging out at the piers can de-
velop into a further problem when
pelicans get caught with fishing
hooks while trying to steal fish di-
rectly from the fishing line. It's not
unusual to see a pelican with a
hook embedded in its pouch and
fishing line trailing behind it,"
Rodgers said.
Embedded hooks can cause the soft
skin of the bird's pouch to tear.
Such injuries can sometimes be-
come infected, which can lead to

experts to concluue
these "free meals"
were affecting the overall health of
brown pelican populations.

"To counter this problem, the Com-
mission passed a rule that is in-
tended to stop the feeding of large
numbers of pelicans. This rule is
considered necessary to maintain
healthy wild populations of brown
pelicans in Florida," Rodgers said.

The new rule states that the inten-
tional feeding or the placement of
food that attracts pelicans and
modifies the natural behavior of
the pelican so as to be detrimental
to the survival or health of a local
population is prohibited.


It is no longer permitted under
this rule to dump or discharge
large amounts of fish scraps, by-
catch or comparable materials
from a fish house or similar facili-
ty which-attracts large numbers of
pelicans to that area and causes
changes in the behavior of the peli-
cans. Though indirectly feeding
the pelicans, such large scale activ-
ities can have a detrimental effect
on a brown pelican population by
inhibiting migration and leading to
cold weather induced illness and
injury

Under the new rule, it is no longer
permissible for organized groups
of people or organizations to feed
groups of pelicans at regular
places and regular times when the
pelicans are not restrained or not
directly under their care.

Public fishing piers and
beaches which attract
large groups of fisher-
men may want to consid-
er creating scrap chutes
where folks can dump the
leftovers to keep them
out of the way of peli-
cans.


--- The intent of this
rule is not to regulate the occasion-
al or the casual feeding of individ-
ual pelicans. Individuals who are
out fishing and happen to hand a'
scrap to a begging pelican will not
be cited for their behavior. This
rule provides an enforcement tool,
to resolve situations when large
scale feeding could negatively in-
fluence the health or survival of a
pelican.

"However, you can help keep peli-
can populations healthy by not
feeding them. One person feeding a
pelican one fish may not harm the
bird, but problems do occur be-
' cause usually there are. many peo-
ple feeding that same pelican every
day," Rodgers said.

Another way to help is to use fish
scrap repositories at piers and
docks, if they are available. If they
are not available, discard your fish
scraps in a garbage can or at home.


"Your efforts will help keep pelican
populations wild," Rodgers said.
Brown pelicans in Florida
Brown pelicans are large, shore-
dwelling birds, about 48 inches
long, with a 6-7 foot wingspan.
They weigh in at about 8 pounds.
They are strong swimmers and
graceful flyers, but are rather
clumsy on land. They are long-
lived -- the oldest individual on
record died at 43 years of age. Peli-
cans can be seen along coasts from
North to South America.

MCCALL'S WEEK OF CELEBRATION

We start with our VBS at 6:00 on Monday the 23rd
with a light snack, and then off to the Jerusalem
marketplace, and this will be the pattern through Fri-
day.

This is a new concept in Vacation Bible School. We
invite everyone to come and journey with us each
evening. If you regularly attend another church send
the kids anyway. They can never learn enough about
Jesus.

On Saturday the 28th we will host a Methodist Clus-
ter Sing at 5:30 pm. If you are not Methodist, come
anyway IF you, or your group, or choir would like to
sing, or play your instrument, give us a call.

On Sunday the family harmony of One Voice will be
with us in concert at the 11:00 AM service. They are
a Southern Gospel oriented bother and sister duo
from Kentucky

We are located at 7755 South S.R. 349, Branford.

Kentucky (Dixie Co?)
Commandments
1I
Some people in Kentucky have trouble with all those
"shalls" and "shall nots" in the Ten commandments.
Folks just aren't used to talking in those terms. So,
some folks in eastern KY got together and translated
the "King James" into "Pike County" language.... No
joke, read on...
The Hillbilly's Ten Commandments (posted on the
wall at the City Hall in Pikeville, KY.)
(1) Just one God
(2) Honor yer Ma & Pa
(3) No tellin' tales or gossipin'
(4) Git yourself to Sunday meeting'
(5) Put nothing' before God
(6) No foolin' around with another fellow's gal
(7) No killing'
(8) Watch yer mouth i
(9) Don't take what ain't years
(10) Don't be hankerin' for yer buddy's stuff

Local Couple Explores

Russia and the Baltics

Gene and Linda Dumas were generous enough to
share their memories of their recent trip to Russia
and the Baltics with the Advocate. They flew from
New Yor City to Helsinki, and went into Russia and
then through the former Soviet states of Belarus ,
Lithuania, Latvia, Bosnia, and then back to Finland.
They crossed the vast Russian plains, and visited
Novgorod, the oldest city in Russia. They also went
to St. Petersburg, where they visited The Winter
Palace, home of The Hermitage Museum, which
houses the works of great masters such as Da Vinci,
Michelangelo, Matisse and Picasso.
While at the monastery, the Dumas experienced a
chorus of monks. The Russian Orthodox faith does
not allow mechanical instruments, and the a capella
music was truly inspirational!
One of the most memorable places of their visit was
Red Square. Dominated by St. Basil's Cathedral, it
also houses Lenin's Tomb.
"It was a wonderful trip," said Gene," one of the most
memorable experiences of my life, and I thank God
that I live in a country where I am free to make such
a journey"
The Dumas' next trip is planned to be a venture to
Italy with their twin grandsons.
