Move-over

Law
A press conference was
held Monday to bring at-
tention to the Move Over
Law. The law requires
Florida drivers to move
over--away from stopped
EMS or Police vehicles
and to slow down to 20
miles below the stated
speed limit. Two law en-
forcement officers have
been killed in Florida
since 2002, and 131
pedestrians or officers
have been injured while
standing on the side of
the road.

law this week

Don't buy that new ex-
pensive pool pump just
yet: if Crist signs a new
law, all new pool pumps
will be required to have
two speeds: one for maxi-
mum filtration and one
lower speed. This
echoes a similar law in
California, designed to
save electricity

he Board heard and ac-
cepted 3 applications.
The first will allow Kaboom
Fireworks LLC to sell fireworks
at Hitchcock's Foodway and the
Bridge in Old Town from June
25th to July 5th this year, provid-
ed that the fireworks are legally
allowed in Florida and that they
clean up the areas afterwards.


The second provided an amend-
ment to the County's Compre-
hensive Plan that will allow a
'density of 12 units per acre
where said units are connected
to both central water and sani-
tary sewer systems. This applies
to the Coastal High Hazard Ar-
eas only.

The third again amended the
Comprehensive Plan to encour-

action was required by the
Board but to give its blessing to
the enterprise.

A port released by
the Cross City Po-
lice Department,
two arrests have
been made in the battery
on Doug Ward and Jere-
miah Branch that took
place on June 14th.

Jamario Teague and
Richard Jenkins were
positively identified by
Branch and Ward as
members of the group
that attacked them on
NE 118th Street in Cross
City.

In a sworn interview
with Investigator Robert
Owens, Teague claimed
that Richard Jenkins was
the "person who beat and
robbed" Ward and
Branch, inside a building
referred to as "the Cas-
tle." Teague stated that
although he was present
at the scene, that Jenkins
acted alone. Teague also
stated to Investigator
Owens that Jenkins had
told him prior to the inci-
dent that "he was going
to rob" Ward and
Branch,


Ms. Emma Glenn passed
away on Saturday. She
was was a beloved matri-
arch of her family; the
mother of 13 children,
102 grandchildren, 106
great grandchildren, 109
great-great grandchil-
dren and 7 great, great
great grandchildren.

She was born in Dixie
County in 1908 and she
was a Sunday school


. teacher and a member of
the Eastern Star. She
was a member of Pick-
ens Temple United
Methodist Church.

She had many jobs over
her long lifetime. She
worked at the Suwannee
Gables Motel, cleaned
houses, baby sat and did
farm work.

The Advocate inter-'
viewed Ms..Glenn back
in September of 2007.
She said she loved Dixie
County because "of the
small community and
everyone where I lived at
in Old Town seemed like
family."

Services will be held at
'DCHS on June 28.


Branch denied ever be-
ing inside the "castle"
building, and stated that
the fight'had begun on
the street. Ward said
that he was struck with
some type of "blunt ob-
ject" that caused injuries
to his left eye and cheek
and was knocked uncon-
scious almost immedi-
ately. Ward required
medical attention and
has scheduled recon-
structive surgery
Branch was not severely
injured.

According to the report,
numerous items were
stolen from Branch dur-
ing the attack.

Both victims stated that
there were two or three
other African American
males who took part in
the attack, but who have
not yet been positively
identified. An investiga-
tion is ongoing.

Both Teague and Jenk-
ins are currently incar-
cerated in the Dixie
County Jail..

Some pointers

for Obama


Having advised John McCain on campaign strategy
last week, it seems only fair that I should do the same
for BarackObama-not that either candidate is likely
to be influenced by your humble correspondent.
Senator Obama started his campaign by sounding
like the uniter, insisting that this campaign is not go-
ing to be about race. That was a good move, and ex-
actly the right thing for the first serious black candi-
date to be saying. He took too long to disassociate
himself with Rev. Jeremiah Wright, but he needs to
cull his circle of friends and associates even further.
He's not just running in Chicago this time,
A smart move was hiring a script writer for Michelle
Obama. Intemperate remarks by a.candidate's wife
are harder to overlook than those uttered by his
preacher. Barack is a good speaker and he would be
wise to assign a low profile role to his bride. Consider
John Kerry's dilemma four years ago.
Candidate Obama also needs to get real about some
of the major issues. The "change" mantra might
make some teeny-boppers swoon and liberal journal-
ists get tingly feelings, but it's not going to get over
with working class Americans who are concerned
with, among other things, how much it costs to gas up
the pickup to get to work.
People who work for a living frankly don't give a
damn if we poke a few holes in the frozen tundra (I'm
talking about ANWAR, not Lambaugh Field) and sink
a few oil derricks out in the Gulf. They want some re-
lief from high gas prices and the resultant inflation of
food and other commodity prices. It doesn't take, a
certified economist to figure out that taxing the oil
companies' profits and their product to the consumer
will only make filling up more expensive than it al-
ready is.
The war in Iraq is going better now than it has in a
long time. American casualties are way down, the
Iraqis are assuming a greater role in fighting the ene-
my, and things are generally going our way Pull out
now, and all that goes down the drain. Worried about
our nation's image abroad? Why would anybody trust
the United States if we abandoned Iraq to the terror-
ists at this point?
Obama needs to be very, very careful about doing,
business with Hillary Clinton. A year ago (and a long
time before that), she considered herself heir-appar-
ent to the presidency and was anticipating a corona-
tion at this year's convention. She is giving lip ser-
vice to supporting Obama, but she is not a happy
camper.
Look at it this way: If Obama loses this elec-
tion, his superstar status will have faded in four
years, President John McCain will be a geriatric 76,
and Senator Hillary Rodham.Clinton will be a com-
paratively youthful 65.
Thus, it seems reasonable to suppose that
Hillary doesn't really want Barack Obama to win the
White House this year. If he got in, did a credible job
and won a second term, that would leave Hillary ap-
proaching geriatric status herself by 2016. If Barack
didn't win a second term, she'd be facing an incum-
bent Republican in 2016, assuming she could even get
the nomination by then.
Would selecting Hillary as his vice-presidential can-
didate help Obama? Perhaps, but her proximity to her
dream of the presidency would carry its risks. His
wife doesn't like her, and in this case, perhaps Barack
needs to heed Michelle's counsel.
Some of his critics have accused Barack Hussein
Obama of being a "closet" Muslim. I don't know if
that's true, but if not he needs to become more con-
vincing on that score. Likewise with border security
In short, Barack Obama needs to realize that he will.
not be performing exclusively for a stadium full of
adoring admirers between now and November.

2007 Dixie County Advocate


Dear Editor,

Please, to anyone it may con-
cern. How can our court sys-
tem and child-support system
be so screwed up?

Listen to our story Hopefully
someone may have an answer
or two!

In 2005 my stepson came to
live with my husband and our
family Yes, at this time he
was paying support to the De-
partment of Revenue to settle
his debt to the mother for our
son.

In Jan: 2006 we went to court
in Alachua County Child sup-
port was stopped and arrears
were set. With out any pay-
ments coming from the moth-
er. Yet we still paid on our
debt to her every month..

In March 2007, after paying
for fifteen months and a tax
intercept, the mother went
and signed a "Request for Clo-
sure". At this point we
thought it was over, case
closed, they took no more
money for our household.

Fearing that the mother may
leave the state with our son,
and the fact that custody was
never established, we filed
December 2007 in Dixie for
custody of our son. We got a
fast hearing by default "The
mother never responded to
the petition." My husband
was given custody in Febru-
ary 2008. In this order is stat-
ed 'Any child support obliga-
tion that the father owes. the
mother is hereby terminat-
ed."


This is after showing our:
Judge this Closure Request
the mother signed off on in -
March of '07. With still no or-
der for the mother to pay sup-
port to us.

In March '08 one year after,
we receive a letter from the
Department of Revenue stat-
ing that my husband once
again is going to have to pay
on arrearages.

It seems that the mother who
has not had, nor helped with
the wellbeing of my son was
able to walk into her local
welfare office and request
that the case be reopened
while she receives Public As-
sistance, (Taxpayer monies,
your money).

My husband and myself have
taken, faxed, certified mailed,
and called that lovely 800
number; no one will or can
help.

So far the only thing we have
received was a letter from the
Department of Treasury in
June '08, (Four months after a
court order), stating they had
sent our full stimulus check
to the Department of Revenue
to be disbursed to the mother,

We have been waiting two
months to get a court hearing
to get this fixed and it took
this mother all of thirty min-
utes to get Public Assistance.

Where is the Justice for my
son and our family? Any
ideas please contact us.

Thank you,
Cynthia Crowley
Cross City, FL

S by Kathy McKinney

Have you read Sen. Dodd's
Housing Bailout bill? No, and he's counting on it
that you haven't, and that you won't. Aside from the
ugly fact that he's presenting a bill to give gazillions
of your tax dollars to Countrywide, the lender who
gave him a "special VIP deal" on his personal mort-
gage, there are other dirty deeds afoot.

A new provision was slipped into the bill this week
that has nothing to do with mortgages....but lets the
government track your personal credit card use. The
Senate Bill summary says:

Payment Card and Third Party Network Information
Reporting. The proposal requires information reporting
on payment card and third party network transactions.
Payment settlement entities, including merchant ac-
quiring banks and third party settlement organizations,
or third party payment facilitators acting on their be-
half, will be required to report the annual gross amount
of reportable transactions to the IRS and to the partici-
pating payee. Reportable transactions include any pay-
ment card transaction and any third party network
transaction. Participating payees include persons who
accept a payment card as payment and third party net-
works who accept payment from a third party settle-
ment organization in settlement of transactions. A pay-
ment card means any card issued pursuant to an agree-
ment or arrangement which provides for standards and
mechanisms for settling the transactions. Use of an ac-
count number or other indicia associated with a pay-
ment card will be treated in the same manner as a pay-
ment card. A de minimis exception for transactions of
$10,000 or less and 200 transactions or less applies to
payments by third party settlement organizations. The
proposal applies to returns for calendar years beginning
after December 31, 2010. Back-up withholding provi-
sions apply to amounts paid after December 31, 2011.
This proposal is estimated to raise $9.802 billion over ten
years.

Whew! That's a lot of legalese, but what it means is,
that any time you buy or sell anything on Ebay, or use
Paypal, or use your credit card ANYWHERE, the
credit card company will be sending a copy of that
transaction to Uncle Sam, via the IRS. Every single
one, with no pesky warrants or judges required. Sell-
ing your used books on Amazon? The government
will know. Making a little money on the side selling
your used electronics on Ebay? Using epassporte to
load your PokerStars Account? The government is go-
ing to be knocking at the door, wanting their tax mon-
ey, because Ebay, Amazon and Paypal will have to tell
them who you're doing business with and how much


No-Kill


Policy

It may be a while before we have a no-kill poli-
cy by animal control in Dixie County Why? I
believe, it is because animal control, in Dixie
County, has not been run as well as it could be.

For example when was the last time a request
has been made for a grant or a.donation for
low cost spay and neutering (like Alachua has
just received)? Low cost spay and neutering is
a necessary step on the t'oad toward a no-kill
policy! At present, animal control, here in Dix-
ie County, is under the sheriff's dept., and in
defense of the sheriff's dept., I can understand
that animal control is way down on the list of
priorities, and rightly so, for the sheriff's dept. '
has many more urgent matters to attend to.

For this reason I will attempt to met with the
sheriff and ask him to reccommend to the,
County commissioners that animal control be
turned over to the Dixie County Humane Soci-
ety so that we can give it top priority! Then
shortly after I will go before our County Com-
missioners and request that they contract ani-
mal control to the Dixie County Humane Soci-
ety

Now, I ask all members of the Dixie County
Voter's Union and all animal lovers to "stay
tuned". I will keep you informed of my
progress. If these representatives of the people
will not bend to the will of the people, we may
again have to show our strength, as we did at
the last election!

With respect,
Pamela (mad-dog) Swanson
President Dixie County Voter's Union

your customer spent. How far behind the IRS do you
think the State of Florida will be, wanting their sales-
tax money, too? Big Brother will be watching you
while you're at home, doing business on the 'net in
your pink Tweety Bird jammies. (Oh, no wait, that's
just me.)

Privacy groups are screaming to the high heavens,
quite rightly protesting that the identity thieves will
have a field day with this database. Most people doing
' business through Paypal and similar services are
small companies who use their personal social securi-'
ty numbers to do business. The Center for Democracy
and Technology says that "At a time when concerns
about both identity theft and government spying are
paramount, Congress wants to create a new honey pot
of private data that includes Social Security numbers.
This bill reduces privacy across America's payment
processing systems and treats every American small
business or eBay power seller like a criminal on pa-
role by requiring an unprecedented level of reporting
to the federal government. This outrageous idea is an-
other reason to delay the housing bailout legislation
so that Senators and the public at large have timeto
examine its full implications."

Notice that the legal wording includes an exclusion
for amounts under $10,000 and under 200 transactions
for THIRD PARTY transactions. That's only compa- '
nies like Paypal. Your credit card usage will be fair
game to any federal busybody who wants to take a
gander.

President Bush has promised to veto this bill. De-
mocrats will scream that he's dooming the "poor
American homeowner" to foreclosure. We know bet-
ter. He'll be telling the banks to clean up their own
messes and telling the government to butt out of our
shopping.

Fatal crash in


Levy County

On Saturday, June 21, at 2:10 P.M. Ms. Sheila Walker
was driving North on Highway 19 in the left turn lane
preparing to turn onto NW 160th Street. A semi was
headed South in the left lane of 19 at the time. Ms.
Walker turned in front of the semi, but didn't realize
tha. Another vehicle was travelling in'the right lane
as her view was obstructed by the semi.

She collided, head on, with Kristopher Strickland.
Ms. Walker was ejected from the cab of her truck.
Emergency workers transported both victims to
Shands, where Ms. Walker was pronounced deceased.

Mr. Strickland received was seriously injured in the
collision, Neither he, nor Ms. Walker were wearing
their safety belts.

Three fenders bent in

Cross City


On Monday, June 23, Wilmer Phipps had parked his
van in front of the Dixie County Advocate's office, and
was waiting for one of his friends. Suddenly, he was
pressed back against his seat as his van was pushed
forward by another van that was parking behind him.
His van skidded a few feet before bumping into the car
that he was parked behind.

According to the lady driving she was attempting to
park behind Mr. Phipps' van when her gas pedal be-
came stuck.

All three vehicles involved only sustained minor dam-
age. There were no injuries.


Let's Elect Mark Rains For
Dixie County School Superintendent
"The Way To A Child's Mind Is Through The Heart"


Mark's Priorities...



SAFETY AND SECURITY

-Global positioning system (GPS) installed on all school buses gives speed and lo-
cation of bus. (Law enforcement quick response... parents peace of mind.)
-Re-instate driver education- 1 teenager dies every 12 seconds on our highways. Ed-
ucation can make a difference when our children are on the highway.
-Install campus camera systems at Ruth Rains Middle School and Old Town Ele-
mentary (DCHS and AES currently have camera systems). Nothing is more impor-
tant than student safety
-Implement a mass notification emergency system through text messages to all par-
ents and stakeholders.
-Reduce discipline problems on our campuses -our children deserve to be safe at
school. I have the confidence and courage to make the changes necessary to remove
disruptive and violent students.

RELATIONSHIPS
-Hire people who love children and want to make a difference in their lives.
-Change will only take place if employees work together -TEAMWORK!
-Utilize an existing space for a Superintendent's satellite office in Old Town with
specific days and times I will be in the Old Town office for your travelling convenience.
-Change the way we work with all agencies -county city prison, and sheriff's office. In a small
county we must pull together and share resources.
-I will represent Dixie County at the regional and state level in a manner that you would ap-
prove. I will aggressively fight for our children and see that our County receives its fair share.

ACADEMIC PROGRESS

-Change and improve communications from the Administration to faculty staff and parents.
-Increase the involvement of faculty and staff concerning selection of software programs,
textbooks and major curriculum decisions, Input and evaluation from all concerned is impor-
tant.
-Expand dual enrollment and vocational offerings at Dixie County High School. Each child
deserves every opportunity to be successful.
-In these extremely difficult budget times, we must find ways to increase teacher and staff
salaries. I have 18 years of day to. day experience in dealing with school finance on a regular
basis and I am ready willing, and able to make the changes necessary to build a strong school
system.
-I believe quality facilities improve student performance. In my current role as Executive Di-
rector of Support Services, I am aggressively pursuing special facilities funding for a new
high school campus in Dixie County I strongly believe I can make this dream a reality if elect-
ed as your Superintendent of Schools.
-The Governor has forecast an additional 4% budget cut for all Florida school districts
in November 2008.1 I will make changes and cuts at the administrative level while pro-
tecting the teachers and students at all costs.

Redneck Tech
by Eli Loy

Protecting The

Internet From


~T- 2F
So, you think Your chil
your child might
be using the inter- Part
net for nefarious
purposes. What are you going to do
about it? Well, here are some things to
consider.

First, if your kid IS getting into hack-
ing, installing programs that deny them
access to sites that provide them hack-
ing utilities sounds like a good idea.
There are several of these programs
available, some for free. However, what
you should remember is that your bud-
ding hacker may have already learned
many tricks to get around security Af-
ter all, that is what hacking is. So, in-
stalling a program that requires a pass-
word to access certain sites or pro-
grams will likely just encourage them.
Knocking down the password you set up
is just as tempting to them, if not more
so, as messing up the kid next door's
myspace page.

So, I reccommend that any program
you use to against your kid's nefarious
networking skills, should be of the type
that doesn't actually have a graphical
display that could alert them. To this
end, what you should do is find and in-
stall a nice keylogger. Many keyloggers
will run in the background, meaning
that no one will know it's even there.
With one of these nifty programs run-
ning, you can tap into the most potent
weapon in a parent's arsenal... surveil-
lance. That's right, you will know what
they have typed into the computer, and
from that, you may deduce their com-
puting habits. If you catch them at
things that you don't approve of, quite
simply take the computer away.

Now, when installing a key logger, keep
in mind that they are, generally, consid-
ered a virus. Your antivirus program
may go ballistic and request that you re-
move the program, if you do, it won't,
of course, work. It is an interesting con-
cept though: a virus that does what you
want it to do. One that I have used in
the past is the KGB Free Keylogger, if
you type "KGB Keylogger free" into
google, you should be able to find it.


dren

2


If your young hacker
seems able to get around
the software keylogger, you
can purchase discreet hard-
ware keyloggers that work
nicely as well. Or, you
could just stand over their
shoulder while they are on
the computer, of course,
they will notice that.


The down side to a key logger is that
the kid will still have access to every-
thing they were trying to get from the
internet. YOU, however, will have a
record of all their web usages, and can
subsequently banish them from the
computer with a clear conscience.

Another way of keeping your children
out of places-they have no business
surfing to, is to have your computer ac-
cess the internet through a proxy A
proxy is a computer that your computer
can connect to and request data from
the internet. Many proxies don't filter
the content, and are primarily used to
mask a users location, thereby keeping
them anonymous. Some proxies,
though, will filter out any content that
the administration deems inappropri-
ate. I can't really give you any addresses
for proxies, due to legal concerns, but,
if you google "free proxy", I'm sure you
can find some. I happen to know that
any proxy operating out of Saudi Ara-
bia (don't ask) will filter out pretty
much everything you or I would consid-
er elicit. If you are going to use a proxy,
you should get the owner of that
proxy's consent before using it.

Also, keep in mind that some "open"
proxies can be used by the proxy's ad-
ministration to record any data that.
goes through it. That can include credit
card numbers, and any other informa-
tion that your computer transmits to
the internet. So, if you are using your'
computer for banking, make SURE you
trust the proxy server, or else disable it
when you make transactions involving
sensitive data.

Configuring proxies can be confusing,
so in the next week I'll try to explain
how it is done.



See Y'all around!


WHAT EVERY
CONSUMER SHOULD
KNOW ABOUT THE
END OF ANALOG
BROADCAST
TELEVISION

At midnight February 17,
2009 television will under-
go the biggest advance
since the introduction of
color: all over-the-air tele-
vision stations will turn;
off their analog broadcast
signal and switch over to
100 percent digital broad-
cast. With this change
quickly approaching, con-
sumers across the nation,
are faced with confusion
and misinformation about
the digital television con-
version.

FIVE THINGS EVERY
CONSUMER SHOULD,
KNOW ABOUT THE DTV
CONVERSION:

1. It is Unavoidable:
The government has man-
dated that old analog tele-
vision transmitters cease
broadcasting television
signals in February of
2009. -Although many peo-
ple are aware of the tran-
sition, they may not be
aware of what they need
to do. Households may not
realize that they need to
buy a converter box for
any analog television not
connected to a cable or
satellite service and in-
stall it by February 17,
2009 to continue to receive
free, over-the-air televi-
sion. According to a cur-
rent Association of Public
Television Stations
(APTS) survey, 25 percent
of over-the-air households
said they "don't know"
what steps they will take
for the transition, and 19
percent said they would
"do nothing."

2. It Won't Impact Ca-
ble or Satellite Reception:
The DTV conversion will
only affect non-digital TV
sets receiving signals via
rabbit ears or a rooftop or
attic antenna. With rare

exceptions, all TVs can be
converted to digital, even
black and white ones, but
since technical under-
standing varies, many
people mistakenly believe
they will need to purchase
an expensive HD televi-
sion or begin cable or
satellite service.

3. There are Two Ways
of Continuing to Receive
Over-the-Air Television: A
great deal of confusion re-
mains about the differ-
ences between HDTV and
standard digital televi-
sion. While both are digi-
tal formats, the cost impli-
cations of equipment are
significant and con-
sumers need to know
what questions to ask be-
fore they buy a new televi-


sion or sign a cable, satel-
lite or broadband TV con-
tract.

a. Expensive Method:
Buy a new digital HDTV
and a digital antenna.
b. Cheaper Method: Get
a $40 dollar coupon from
the government to help
you purchase a $70 con-
verter box that will turn
digital signals from your
antenna into an analog
stream for your old TV

4. $40 Coupons are
Available: Government
coupons are available to
help consumers purchase
converter boxes for old
televisions. For informa-
tion, visit www.DTVan-
swers.com.

.06 Gas Tax Renewal

By David Ryman


sioner Johnson pointed
out that, in the private

the lowest gas tax rates
in the state.

A reduced board of Com-
missioners sat early
Monday morning to con-
sider action on continu-
ing the County's 6 cent
gas tax. They had the op-
tion to increase the tax
up to 12 cents.

The public audience of
one asked what the gen-
erated revenues are used
for. Arthur Bellot, the
County Manager, in field-
ing the question made
the following points:-
All gas tax revenues col-

Energy succeed in their
requests to increase their

25% increase in all our

The road budget often re-

From COMMISSION, page one

The Board wishes Jim Brown a speedy recovery from
the serious injuries he sustained recently that has ne-
cessitated his resignation from the board of Suwan-
nee Water and Sewer Management.

Suwannee Water has had a bad rap over recent years.
But due to the work of Mr Brown and others, the wa-
ter quality now reported to be exceptionally high. Un-
fortunately the toll exacted on the protagonists has
also been high, so that we now have a situation where
none of the existing board members are seeking re-
election. There are two candidates so far running for
the 5 seats. I am not saying the job is easy, but much
of the hard work has been done, and if you are eligi-
ble, please think about running.

Jerry Prater presented a specification for a new PC
for use by Veteran's Services. The board took it under
consideration and will investigate funding options.
Tim Alexander, Emergency Services Director, wants
to remind everyone that Hurricane Season is here
and HAVE A PLAN, BE PREPARED. Bid packs have
been sent out regarding the proposed new Emergency
Operations Center. With all the recent rain, it is not
expected that a burn ban will be needed between now
and July 4th.

As reported in the Advocate last week, Propane gas
containers, as used for gas grills etc., are appearing
with a blue or greenish tint on the brass opening. The
cause of this is probably due to contact with ammo-
nia when used in Meth labs. If you have a propane
container check for this tint and return it asap, it
could explode. ..

Three new road resurfacing contracts have been ap-
proved a has B&B Demolition services as a new con-
tractor.

As the years grant funding cycle starts in July, Dixie
has $9M approved for next year, up from $4M in the
current year and $8M in the previous year. $21M are
to be spent on road improvements over a 3 year span.

The Board
voted in fa-
y has one of vor of a res-
gas tax rates solution at
,in the state. their last
meeting to
join with
the 34 counties in the
Small Counties Coalition
in an effort to put pres-
sure on the Florida Leg-
islature to do something
about fuel costs. This ap-
pears to be more of a
symbolic gesture as there
cannot be many people in
the country that do not
realize high fuel costs ef-:
fect almost every aspect.
of our lives, and if some-
thing can be done then
the sooner the better. But
you still have to fill in the
paperwork!!

The bottom line is that
the tax is likely to gener-
ate less revenue for the
county than in previous
years as consumers cut
back on their fuel usage.

From FOWLER, page one

Due to my Instructor
qualifications I quickly
progressed within the de-
partment, in 1995, I was
promoted to Training Su-
pervisor at Mayo C.I.. A
few years later, I was pro-
moted to my current po-
sition. As the consultant
and academy coordinator
for five institutions, I am
responsible for the super-
vision and instruction of
up to fifty officer recruits
at any given time. Train-
ing courses include Poli-
cy & Procedure, Opera-
tions, Emergency Pre-
paredness, Communica-
tions, and Interpersonal
Skills & Human Diversi-
ty To better serve you as
your Dixie County Tax
Collector I possess and
utilize all of the above
skills daily I really take
pride in the Human Di-
versity and Interpersonal
Skills section of training.
In our ever-changing so-
ciety it is important that
we focus on all people
and the needs that each
possess.

Prior to joining the De-
partment of Corrections,
I was the office manager
and a designer at Marie's
Floral Designs, in Cross
City For eight years, I
supervised up to sixteen
employees and kept the
office running smoothly
My first job out of school
was clerk at Cross City
Office Supply Several
years later I opened and
operated Photography by

Golden Rule. In both
campaigning and with
your support, serving as
your Tax collector, there
is nothing more impor-
tant than the Bible adage:
Treat others as you
would have them treat
you. If each of us treat-
ed our fellow citizens as
we would like to be treat-
ed, wouldn't the world be
a far better place? With
your help, when elected,
my office would strictly
follow this policy As a
public servant, this is of
utmost importance.

Perhaps you've noticed,
at the Dixie Kwik Pik we
make it a priority to in-'
still in our employees an
attitude of servitude.
The first thing we tell
our workers is to always
be friendly, smile, and
genuinely say "Thank
you, please come back to
see us". We tell them,
that we would like to be
known as the friendliest
store in town. I am a
great believer in being
gracious, polite, and as
helpful as possible in all
situations. This brings
me to a point that my
mother made as I was
discussing my candidacy
with her. "Lisa," she
said, "You will either
WIN the election and be-
come the Dixie County
Tax Collector or you will
WIN friends through
meeting and greeting the
great citizens of this
county and having this
invaluable experience.
Either way you'll be a
WINNER."


I am not afraid of new
challenges or hard work;
actually, I thrive on both.
5 If you know me, then you
&' know how true this is. It
would be an honor and
Smy pleasure to serve you
in this capacity I appre-
ciate your time and will-
ingness to get to know
me a little better and am

Valdosta, GA- Once in a
great while, a song comes
along that transcends
musical boundaries to
speak to people's hearts.
The band MercyMe did
just that with their very
first single, "I Can Only
Imagine," back in 2002
and their music has been
an inspiration for mil-
lions around the world
ever since. Wild Adven-
tures welcomes Bart Mil-
lard and crew to the park
on Saturday June 28th for
a powerful night of song
and praise.

According to the band's
bio, it has been a long
and sometimes very
bumpy road. Soon after
the professional success
of their first and second
album, personal tragedy
struck the band as the
members lost several peo-
ple who were very close
to them. During the next
two years, the band strug-
gled to juggle their tough
touring schedule, making
albums and coping with

The process produced an-
other beautiful anthem in
"Homesick," a song writ-
ten in homage for those
lost.
After the emotionally
draining time, the band
withdrew to spend some
time reflecting and work-
ing on their fourth al-
bum, which was entitled
appropriately enough,
Coming Up to Breathe.

"We just wanted to take a
break and surface and
take a gasp of air," says
front man Bart Millard.
"We just wanted to stop
for a second and kind of
let our hair down."

The time off proved to be
good, as the album pro-
duced three hit singles
and led to the develop-
ment of their latest pro-
ject, All That is Within
Me, released in Novem-
ber of 2007. Along the
way, MercyMe has per-
formed around the world,
garnered numerous
awards and started The
Go Foundation, which
funds mission trips

with every step of the
way, the band gives all
glory praise and success
to God.

Washington, DC Today,
Liberty Counsel is filing
an amicus brief with the
United States Supreme
Court in the case of
Pleasant Grove City, Utah
v. Summum. Liberty
Counsel's brief is being
filed in support of Pleas-
ant Grove City, which re-
fused to display Sum-
mum's Seven Aphorisms.
Summum argues that its
Seven Aphorisms should
be displayed, since the
city displays a Ten Com-
mandments monument
donated by the Fraternal
Order of the Eagles.

Pleasant Grove City has
11 displays
and monu-
ments in Pio-
neer Park. The
displays and
monuments '"
were donated
by private per-
sons or organi-
zations over a
period of
more than 80
years. The dis-
plays and
monuments
have come
from local peo-
ple or organi- .- --
zations and de-
pict the histo-
ry of Mor-
monism and
the city In
1971, the city
accepted a do-
nated monu-
ment of the Ten Com-
mandments from the Fra-
ternal Order of Eagles.
The city owns, maintains
and controls the displays
and monuments. The city
may remove, modify, re-
make, or sell the monu-
ments.

Summum is a religion
and philosophy that be-
gan in 1975, as a result of
Claude "Corky" Nowell's
alleged encounter with
certain "beings" he de-
scribes as "Summum In-
dividuals." Summum
practices "Modern Mum-
mification." The Seven

Aphorisms include what
Summum calls Psychoki-

mum states that its teach-
ings are similar to Gnos-
tic Christianity

When Pleasant Grove
City rejected Summum's
Seven Aphorisms on the
basis that Summum was
not a local organization
nor was the gift associat-
ed with any history of
the city, Summum filed
suit, claiming the city
must permanently dis-
play the Seven Apho-
risms because the city


displayed other donated
monuments, including
the Ten Commandments
donated by the Fraternal
Order of the Eagles some
thirty years ago. Incredi-
bly, the Tenth Circuit
Court of Appeals agreed
with Summum and ruled
that the city must perma-
nently display Summum's
Seven Aphorisms. The
American Center for Law
and Justice represents
the city and requested the
U.S. Supreme Court to re-
view the decision.

By accepting donated dis-
plays, the city did not


open a forum for every-
one wishing to display a
monument in the public
park. The city owned the
donated displays, and the
city could remove, modi-
fy, remake or sell any of
the displays. If the gov-
ernment were required to
accept any conflicting
message anytime the gov-
ernment spoke through a
donated display, then the
Statue of Liberty would
need to make room for
the Statue of Tyranny or
perhaps a statue of Stalin
or Adolf Hitler. It would
not make senseto force
the government to in-
clude a display devoted to
atheism every time it dis-


plays a Nativity scene.

Mathew D. Staver,
Founder of Liberty Coun-
sel and Dean of Liberty
University School of Law,
commented on the case:
"The Summum group has
no legitimate interest in
displaying its Seven
Aphorisms. If the govern-
ment had to display con-
flicting and confusing
messages every time it
displays a donated mes-
sage, the Statue of Liber-
ty would have to make
room for the Statue of
Tyranny."

Not broke, but seriously bent
A money-stretching column

By Kathy McKinney

DAVE RAMSEY KNOWS DEBT


Do you watch Dave Ramsey on CNBC? Have you read
the Total Money Makeover? If you haven't, run,
don't walk to the library and get Mrs. Bellot to give
you a copy Or, if you're too lazy for that, I'll give you
the quick low-down on his system.

The whole Money Makeover system is based on sev-
en baby steps. They're really simple, and are de-
signed to give you the psychological impetus to keep
yourself getting out of debt: Ramsey says that you
must do the steps in order.

Baby step one: make a serious commitment to get
yourself out of debt. Ramsey calls this being
"gazelle intense," like a gazelle running from a chee-
tah. He advocates selling everything; cars, boats,
kids' toys...whatever it takes to get you on the path to
financial security He is a proponent of the "beater"
car: "unload your car payments on that expensive car
and buy a cheap, $1000 car with cash"...is one of his
most common statements. But you think you need
that fancy car?


Ramsey says "You
have to live like no-
body else, so that
later, you can live
like nobody else."

Bab# step two is
starting a
"baby"'cash emer-
gency fund, usually
$1,000, so that if
you have an emer-
gency like a failed
transmission or a
trip to the E.R., you
don't have to add
credit card debt to
take care of it.


Get Gazelle intense!


Where to get this money? Dave recommends selling
"so much stuff that the kids are scared that they're
next."

Baby step three is where things start to get fun:
paying off all that debt, in a "debt snowball." Unlike
many financial gurus, he doesn't tell you to pay off
the biggest interest rate first, but the smallest loan .
amount. So, if yott have a $200 credit card balance at
18% and a $3,500 one at 10%, he'd tell you to pay off
the $200 one first. He says that getting rid of that one
will motivate you to tackle the bigger 6ne. Then,,
placing the money that you were paying towards the
$200 debt towards the bigger one until you get that
one paid for, and so on.

Baby step four involves saving three to six months
of your household expenses in a savings account.
This is.so that if you lose your job or some other un-
expected thing happens, you're covered.

Baby step five is saving 15% of your total household
income into a retirement savings account, like an
IRA. You don't do this until you have completed the
first four steps and you're totally out of unsecured
debt.

Baby step six is funding your kid's college. Again,
your retirement savings comes first. There will be


lots of opportunities for
'"Modern man drives a your kids to get scholar-
ship money for college; no-
mortgaged car over a body is going to give you a,
bond-financed highway on scholarship to retire.
credit-card gas." Baby step seven is to pay
down (or off!) your mort-
-Earl Wilson gage, as quickly as you
can.

Baby step eight is to build your wealth and to give
your money away Yep, give it away According to
Ramsey, this is the MOST fun you will have; giving
your money to help others. This is also the time to
start seriously investing, and enjoying your life.

You can catch Dave Ramsey on CNBC or check your
local church: Dave hosts a thirteen lesson seminar
called "Financial Peace University" that is held at
churches and clubs periodically He also has a web-
site online at www.daveramsey.com.

FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH NEWS

We thank God for all His blessings, and especially
' for the wonderful rain He sent us this week. Today
was a glorious day in the Lord. Bro. Jackie delivered
two good messages God had laid on his heart. In the
morning service, Bro. Jim Fisher sang in the morn-
ing service, doing a wonderful job of singing "I'd
Rather Have Jesus" and in the evening service the
Britton/Crenshaw Quartet sang "What A Lovely
Name". If you missed either service today you truly
missed a blessing.

Next Sunday June 29th will be our 5th Sunday ser-
vice with 5th Sunday dinner in the fellowship hall.
Bring your favorite covered dish and join in the fes-
tivities. Then that night will be our 5th Sunday night
sing. If you want to sing, play ar. instrument or use
your talents in any way for the Lord, get in touch
with Bro. Jim Fisher so he can get you on the list. We
have lots of talent in our church and we'd love to have-
you share yours with us.

The morning of July 13th there will be a men's
breakfast at 9:00 AM. If you plan to attend, be sure
you see Bro. Jackie and sign your name on the sign-
up sheet so the cooks can know how many to plan for.
Then on Sunday night, also July 13th, our Vacation
Bible School (VBS) begins- and will go through Friday
night the 18th. If you feel led to help with VBS, see '
Cheryl Lord. All help is always needed and appreciat-
ed.

Remember this week to pray for the sick, the ones
who have lost loved ones, the ones in the hospital and
especially the lost. Invite a friend or relative to come
to Sunday School and Church with you. Our Sunday
School attendance has been down lately as well as our
' Wednesday night attendance. Next week, let's make
an effort to attend ALL services. We'll be looking for
you and may God bless you.

NEW PROSPECT BAPTIST

NEWS


We thank God for the much-needed rain with which
He has been blessing us recently. He always knows
just what we need, and His timing is flawless; His
works are wondrous! On Sunday, it was a privilege to
be in church fellowshiping with other Christians, lis-
tening to the hymns of old, and hearing God's won-
derful messages straight from His Word. Bro. Billy
delivered two very fine messages, one from Luke 21:1-
4 and the other from Matthew 9:18-26, morning and
evening, respectively.

Don't forget our monthly Fellowship Supper Wednes-
day evening...as always, we're looking forward to
some good "vittles." On Saturday evening, June 28th,
6:00 PM, there will be a Community Gospel Sing at
NPBC; if you like good Gospel singing, come on out
and share in the joy! In upcoming news, we are look-
ing forward to our "Retreat at the River" during early
July.

It is always good to have visitors so, if you've been
thinking about visiting a local church, please give
NPBC a try..we would love to have you with us! As
always, please be in prayer for all the folks on the
prayer lists, our President and other leaders and, es-
pecially, our people in military service. We hope
you're having a good week, and may God bless and
keep you safe.


ANCIENT WISDOM FOR MODERN LIFE
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down:
for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
Psalm 37:24 (KJV)
As sinners, we tend to
stumble a lot. We lose
our tempers, say
crummy things,
hurt others' 74
feelings and so
forth.
Fortunately,
God is always
there to pick us
up, dust us off
and get us
moving again.
God is our
cheerleader, and
ever time we
fall. He is there to
catch us. Wyhal a
relief to know that
God is on our side.

In Closing


I would like to take this
opportunity to thank ALL
the people of Dixie County
who in the past weeks gave
me the support and
encouragement to seek the
that office of County Com-
mission District 1. It is

Several months ago, Mr.
Gene Higginbotham came to
me and we discussed several
issues regarding the changes --A'.
needed in the county. He
asked me if I was going to
seek this office. Due to the
uncertainty of my wife, Tracy, being sick at the time, I told him that I had not made a final
decision but that I would not run against him.


Due to overwhelming support on Friday, June 20, 2008,1 I went to the Supervisor of
Elections office and paid my qualifying fees to run as a non-partisan candidate. That would
allow me to see what the outcome of the first primary would be. This was the only way I
could do this and not directly run against Gene, since he and Buddy Lamb had already
qualified under petition cards as Democratic candidates and have their signs out stating
that fact. If the voters elected Gene, I could still keep my word to him and withdraw from
the November election.


With less than an hour left in qualifying, Buddy Lamb withdrew his petition as Democratic
and switched to non-partisan. After discussing it with the Supervisor of Elections, this
change made it so that Buddy, Gene and I would all be on the November ballot. That
would force me to go back on my WORD to Gene.


As many of you already know, I AM A MAN OF MY WORD, so I humbly withdrew my
candidacy immediately. I can assure ALL of the fine people of Dixie County that if.
positive changes are not made, I will be there for you in four years.
Si. erely,
