Secret Feline Ops in Cross City


by David Ryman

With the ab-
sence of the
Mayor on Monday
evening, the Cross
City City Council
heard from Dick Ed-
wards regarding the
2006 block grant
funding that had
been used for the
water plant. The pro-
ject is complete, but
due to not having to
use a granulated ac-
tivated charcoal
(GAC) system, a sub-
stantial amount of
the funds were not
required.

Burglar

ross City, Florida- On
C Tuesday, July 15, 2008,
Investigators with the
Dixie County Sheriff's
Office and Cross City
Police Department arrested
James Darren Corbin, age 20 of
Steinhatchee on charges stem-
ming from burglaries at Rick's
Seafood, New to You Consign-
ment Shop and Dixie Land Bar-
ber Shop.

The DCSO received a call in ref-
erence to a burglary at Rick's
Seafood, when deputies arrived -
they found where an unknown
person had committed a bur-,
glary by busting out the front
window of the building. The per-
son or person then destroyed nu-
merous items including five
vending machines. An investi-
gator was called who reviewed
the surveillance video and were
able to identify James Corbin as
the person committing the bur-
glary.


Busted

During this same
time frame the
Communications
center received
calls in reference
to the Dixie Land
Barber Shop and
New to You Con-
signment Shop be-
ing burglarized. The front win-
dows of both stores had been
busted out, numerous items
stolen and damages to the inside
of both buildings.

Investigators interviewed Corbin
on an unrelated warrant arrest
by the Sheriff's Office. Corbin
admitted to the burglaries at all
three businesses. The three busi-
nesses sustained $2,275 in dam-
ages and a total of $1,180 of
items stolen. Corbin remains in
the DixieCounty Jail awaiting
first appearance on 3 counts of
Burglary, 2 of Grand Theft, 7, of
Criminal Mischief and 1 of Pos-
session of Burglary tools.


Cross City gets new

traffic signal
Finally makes Dixie a five red-light county


City and County Officials, as well as representatives from the
Florida Department of Transportation gathered, this Tuesday, at
the site of Cross City's new traffic signal.


n Tuesday, July
15 a project that
has been more
than 10 years in
the making was declared
completed. The new traf-
fic light at Hwy 19 and
Continental Rd is to be
activated on July 16.

It was noted that the new
traffic light has been
much supported by the
community This just


IF- ri k- I tl~l~-)ID


To subs


goes to show that the
light has been sorely
needed, as new traffic
signals are usually met
with disdain.

The lights' supports
were mounted well clear
of the roadway so that
widening of the intersec-
tion could be performed
without having to relo-
cate them.

The intersection where
the new signal is located
the site of an acci-
many years ago,
FL HI resulted in the first
rgency helicopter
it out of Dixie Coun-
Qithout a doubt, they
prevent many future
.dents.


The paperwork has
to be adjusted to re-
flect this lower ex-
penditure before all
parties can sign off
on the project, and
Cross City can enter
the new funding cy-
cle and apply for fur-
ther funding to en-
able more improve-
ments to the Water
Plant. Mike Cassidy,
City Manager, will
be consulting with
the staff members at
the plant to identify
what the next pro-
ject ought to be.

A low pressure
waste water collec-
tion system is being


considered and the
council suggested
expansion of the wa-
ter supply to parts of
the city that do not
presently have the
option of city water.
The council ex-
pressed their appre-
ciation for all of Mr.
Edwards work on be-
half of the city, and
it was good to see he
is doing well after
his recent battle
with Cancer. He is
continuing his good,
works and will be
writing grants this
season.

Next up, Glenda Rob-
son addressed the


members, bringing
them up to date with
the project she has
been working on
since January
The project, cats and
the enormous and
growing population
of them throughout
the US and specifi-
cally in Florida,
where there are 10
million of them
roaming. Euthaniz-
ing them does not
work as attested to
by project in New
York and Chicago.
The best, and hu-
mane, way to do this
is by controlling
their breeding.

2007 Dixie County Advocate


Nice going, Jennifer
Here's a success story that couldn't have hap-
pened, at least not legally, in the United Kingdom, or
until quite recently, even in our nation's capital. The
story involves a 29 year-old woman living in Ocala,
Florida, who used the single mom's best friend to run
off two scumbags who broke into her house in search
of money, probably for drugs, but in any event as an
alternative to working for a living.
Jennifer Ann Hunley, who stands a mere 5
feet, inches tall, but who wields a .357 Magnum with
sufficient authority to preserve the integrity of her
home and quite possibly the lives of her daughter,
her boyfriend and herself.
One of the intruders hit Jennifer's boyfriend
in the head with a nail gun, knocking him down, and
both men started kicking him. When Jennifer saw
what was going on, she retrieved an item she keeps
around for just such occasions and fired a warning
shot, which sent the bozo with the nail gun looking
for a more cordial reception elsewhere.
However, the other geek had a gun that fired
real bullets,'and he got into an OK Coral-type ex-
change with Jennifer, with her emptying her weapon
with, unfortunately, less precision than the legendary
Annie Oakley A short time later, Marion County
Sheriff's deputies picked up 25 year-old Scott Beards-
ley as a suspect. They think they have their man,
however a more positive identification would have
been possible if he'd been sporting a couple of .357-
sized holes in his anatomy
Last we heard, they were still looking for the
other creep, but hopefully he'll have been picked up
by the time you read this.
In case you haven't figured it out by now, this
situation wouldn't have had a happy ending if it had
happened in Washington DC, at least not before a re-
cent Supreme Court decision reversing that city's vir-
tually total gun ban. Or in the United Kingdom, par-
ticularly London, since their ban on firearms in the
home took effect in 1997.
Burglaries are bad enough when they occur
while homeowners are somewhere else. Property
damage and vandalism result, but at least no one gets
physically hurt.
Home invasion robberies are a different mat-
ter. Criminals break into houses, usually packing
handguns. (Note: The criminal element tends not to
observe gun control laws.) Beatings, rapes and
killings occur in these situations, and they happen in
places where the criminal element is virtually as-
sured that his intended victims) will be unarmed.
This type of crime increased dramatically after pri-
vate ownership and possession of handguns was pro-
hibited in DC, the UK, and countless other jurisdic-
tions.
Often the most strident gun control advocates
turn out to be somewhat on the hypocritical side. The
late columnist Carl Rowan is one example. He lived in
Washington, DC, and once used a handgun to shoot a
young man who was only invading his swimming
pool. An influential liberal, Rowan was never convict-
ed of a crime, but the Gainesville Sun did drop his
column shortly afterward.
American politicians and Hollywood celebri-
ties who want gun control for everyone but them-
selves abound. In places like Florida, where firearms
laws are sensible and focused on protecting the indi-
vidual, the celebrity hypocrites are merely a nui-
sance. But in many other places, they're a threat to
the safety and security of every law-abiding citizen.
Getting back to Jennifer Hunley, you did the
right thing, Jennifer, and congratulations. But before
you encounter a similar problem again, let me sug-
gest that you invest in a few rounds of ammo, head to
the range in your spare time and work on improving
your aim.

Bless Big Men with Big Guns


WI by Kathy McKinney

It's 4:55 a.m. I'm fairly sure that most normal people
are soundly asleep, hogging the covers, snoring and
drooling. Me? I'm awake, cursing my constant insom-
nia and watching CSPAN in a fruitless effort to bore
my mind into slumber. Unfortunately, CSPAN, for
some reason known only to programming executives,
has decided to air a lecture by Vincent Bugliosi, a
lawyer who moonlights writing bad books.

Bugliosi makes his living writing true-crime books
like Helter Skelter, OJ Simpson tell-alls and books


whining about the 2000
election. Apparently
the market for paper-
back slasher novels
has worn a bit thin, so
Mr. Bugliosi has
turned his hand to
writing left-wing con-
spiracy theory books.

Classless. That's really
the first thought that
comes to mind when
you listen to him. He's


"War is an ugly thing, but no
The decayed and degraded state
feeling which thinks that nothing
worse. The person who has i
willing to fight, nothing which is m
own personal safety, is a miserable


books than any legitimate indignation on his part.

He says his book is going to be made in to a major
movie, but that they couldn't raise a "single penny"
for it in the U.S. (gee, go figure) so that they had to go
overseas to fund it. I wonder who did fund it; Tehran?
Beijing? Our "friends" the Saudis? Come on, Mr.
Bugliosi, tell us who was willing to shell out millions
to advocate killing a sitting president. He avoids that
question.

There's a sign over his head, quoting Martin Luther
King, Jr. that says "The Principal Objective of All Na-
t the ugliest of things. tions Must Be the Total Aboli-
t the. tion of War." It sounds nice, but
of moral and patriotic I refer you to the old saw about
g is worth war is much sheep passing legislation
against slaughter when the
nothing for which he is wolves are of a different opin-
ore important than his ion. Bugliosi and those of his
ilk want us to be sheep; un-
e creature, and has no armed and helpless in the name


chance of being free unless made or kept so by the of "peace."

not a guy you'd want '
to take to a Sunday dinner on the grounds He just
called The President of the United States a SOB on na-
tional television. He has a nasty mouth and an even
more unpleasant personality. He oozes venom. Appar-
ently it offends him that the Bush family was recently
filmed enjoying a family BBQ and was not mourning
and tearing out their hair at the deaths of innocent
civilians and soldiers in Iraq.

He wants the president tried for murder and "placed
on death row" for the Iraq War, against a country that
was "not our enemy" (hey, dude, there was a reason
we were doing all those fly-overs) and for "lies," along
with Condoleeza Rice,
Dick Cheney, and al-
most anyone else who
works in the Bush

gress who voted for. ...
the war is off the

Letter to the Editor:
Real Men
I have been enjoying Kathy
McKinney's youthful exu-
berance. Her columns are
humorous and topical. I
know, however, that she is in
another age bracket from
myself when I read her list
of "manly men."
Not only did I not know two
of them, there were some
real omissions from a list
that I might have compiled.
Since she asked for more
"top tens," from her readers,
here goes:
Clint Eastwood (he could be
the whole list).. .Dirty Harry
and Senor No Name from
the Spaghetti westerns be-
ing perhaps his most notable
roles in film and Rowdy
Gaines in television. My all
time favorite role though
has to be Josey Wales.
Sean Connery the only
real 007
Paul Newman Hud, Hom-
bre, Butch Cassidy and the
Sundance Kid, Hustler, Cool
Hand Luke, Cat on a Hot Tin
Roof...those ice blue eyes.
Robert Redford Butch and
Sundance again, Three Days
of the Condor, The Way We
Were, The Natural, the
Horse Whisperer. Quiet
strength and just gorgeous!
Gene Hackman He ain't
pretty but you can't take
your eyes off of him when
he is in a scene. Remember
The French Connection,
Hoosiers, the Unforgiven,
Behind Enemy Lines. And a
Marine too.
Robert Duvall Lonesome


on


Dove...can I say more? But
of course there's Apocalypse
Now, Tender Mercies, The
Great Santini. He served in
the Army and was awarded
the National Defense Ser-
vice Medal.
Clark Gable My dear, I sim-
ply don't give a damn.
Lee Marvin Another Ma-
rine and recipient of the
Purple Heart, almost his
whole unit was wiped out at
the Battle of Saipan. Who
can forget The Dirty Dozen,
Death Hunt, Emperor of the
North, the Big Red One and
even Cat Ballou.
Burt Lancaster The
Train..rent the DVD, Elmer
Gantry, From Here to Eter-
nity, The Killers, Trapeze,
Rocket Gibraltar. Amazing
manliness.
Kirk Douglas Spartacus,
and all those westerns. A
Navy man.
Gregory Peck Twelve
O'Clock High, Duel In The
Sun, The Guns of Navarone,
Moby Dick, To Kill a Mock-
ingbird. Variety and
strength.
Anthony Quinn a Mexican
who everyone just knew had
to be "Zorba the Greek,"
Lust for Life, Viva Zapata,
Barabbas and also Guns of
Navarone...
Kevin Costner Open Range
comes to mind, Dances With
Wolves, the Untouchables,
Wyatt Earp, Waterworld, the
Guardian...hmmm, almost
too pretty to be manly but
heis anyway!
Tommy Lee Jones another
Lonesome Dove real man,
No Country for Old Men,
Men in Black ( a modern


ter men than himself." He speaks of our heroes in Iraq:
John Stuart Mill young men and women who
have volunteered, who want to
defend our country: he de-
scribes them as victims who have been "duped" into
joining the military and an "illegal war based on lies."
To speak of those brave young people as hapless,
brainless victims is insulting and I find myself wish-
ing that I'could send him a bumper sticker that's par-
ticularly popular on Myspace right now: "If you don't
stand behind our troops, you're welcome to stand in
front of them."

I wonder what those hostages who were just rescued
out of the Columbian Jungle would say to him about
the judicious use of big men with even bigger guns.
Without our American Special Ops, those folks would
still be sitting in captivity No
S. "aggressive diplomacy" would
have gotten them out. It took
heavily armed men willing to
butcher some
bad guys to save
the innocent.

Like Jack Nichol-
son in "A Few
Good Men," I'm
Sa darned glad that
N there are men
*who will stand
on that wall at
night so that we
can sleep safely
at home in our
Sbeds. Well, those of you who
nbat Camera Center Iraq. can sleep, anyway.


real man), the Three Buri-
als of Melquiades Estrada,
The Fugitive...really smart
too.
Telly Savalas Kojak was
enough but he is another
manly actor who stole the
scenes..Kelly's Heroes, Cape
*Fear, Battle of the Bulge,
Dirty Dozen. Another Army
guy.
Nick Nolte When he's not
misbehaving off screen, he's
pretty good on it. Cannery
Row, Prince of Tides, North
Dallas Forty, Jefferson in
Paris...(Thomas Jefferson
was a real man too)
Russell Crowe .... come
on...he's the manliest out
there at the present
time...Gladiator, L.A. Confi-
dential, Master and Com-
mander the Far Side of the
World, Cinderella Man. Of
course he should refrain
from throwing phones at
bellhops.
I have to note Al Pacino,
Robert DeNiro, James
Cagney, Humphrey Bogart
too. Just Heat and Godfa-
ther put DeNiro and Pacino
in there and Bogart and
Cagney were the original
tough guys. Stature wasn't
the most important thing
back then.
I am sure there are many
more that some of your oth-
er readers have sent in.
Love to see the list! Maybe
Burt Reynolds and Patrick
Swayze will make some-
one's.

To the Editor:
The candidates' speaking
and "meet and greet" that we.
held on July 7 was a smash-
ing success- in spite of the
torrential downpour which
cut the event short. The
event's success was only pos-
sible due to the many volun-
teers who selflessly donated
their time. We would like to
acknowledge the contribu-
tions of these fine citizens.
Human Bill did a fine job
(as always) with setting up
and running audio. Al Neu-
bert, Charles Wilbur, and
Fred Carpenter handled the
parking supervision. Albert
and Julie Squires are to be
thanked for allowing us to
use their property for sur-
plus parking. Thanks to the
Dixie County Historical Soci-
ety for providing snacks and
drinks. A special thank you
to Southland Gospel Quartet
who performed an inspiring
show to warm up the crowd.
Thank you to this fine news-
paper for advertising the
event; the turnout certainly
would not have been as good
without your coverage.
We would like to thank all of
the candidates that made
time to appear. We were par-
ticularly pleased that so
many candidates for state of-
fices showed up. Florida
House District 10 covers all
or part of eleven Florida
Counties, yet all four
prospective Representatives
found time to appear here in
Dixie County
Most importantly we would
like to thank the voters of
Dixie County who braved the
impending storm to learn
about their candidates. Your
dedicated interest in our
democracy makes an endeav-
or such as this worth all of
the expense and work that go
into its presentation.

have to apply in the county you
live in?
Can a minor apply for a
license?
A: Yes and no. There is
normally a 3-day waiting period
as of January 1, 1999 However,
if both parties have taken a
4-hour premarital preparation
course given by a minister or
counselor registered with the
Clerk of the Circuit Court, the
waiting period is waived, and the
license fee is reduced. If only one
applicant took the course, the
waiting period is still required.
if neither applicant is a Florida
resident, the waiting period is not
required. If one applicant is not a


Florida resident, and the other is
a Florida resident and has taken
the premarital course, the waiting
period is still required. Blood tests
have not been required since this
test was abolished October 1,
1986. A marriage license may be
applied for and solemnized in any
Florida county.
Minors, who under oath, swear
that they are parents or expectant
parents of a child may apply. In
addition, the pregnancy must be
verified by a written statement
from a licensed physician.
A previously married minor
may also apply.
A person age 16 or 17 may
apply with the consent of both
parents or guardian, unless the
parents are divorced and only
one parent has full custody.

Monit


So, you are looking for a new monitor.
Well, you are in luck, as I am going to
describe some of the pros and cons of
the two major types of computer moni-
tor.

Let's begin with the good old CRT type
monitor. CRT stands for Cathode Ray
Tube. Sounds scary when you put it like
that doesn't it? A CRT monitor is one of
the standard-issue heavy, bulky moni-
tors, I am sure most of you are familiar
with. I use one at home as well as at
work. Some of the main disadvantages
of CRT monitors are noticeable without
ever opening the box. They are big and
heavy. A CRT monitor will consume
more power than an LCD monitor with
the same viewable area, CRT monitors
generally have a lower refresh rate thpn
LCDs and as such, you may notice an ir-
ritating flickering of your screen. This
results in headaches.

So, why would you get one of these an-
cient dinosaurs and connect it to your
computer? Well, the answer is simple...
OK, no it isn't; but, there is an answer.
First and foremost, they are cheaper.
That is a great selling point right there.
Then there is the fact that they are "
more versatile inthe resolution depart-
ment. That means that no matter what
resolution you set them at (up to their
maximum rating), you will not lose im-
age quality. An LCD monitor must be
used at its native (maximum) resolution
for best quality For this reason, many
people who are in to video games will
prefer the CRT, as the optimal resolu-
tion on an LCD may not provide a very
good frame rate, resulting in a choppy,
gaming experience. Also, the viewable
angle of the monitor is wider, so you
can see the image from, virtually any-
where to the front of monitor.
Now, lets take a look at the newcomer.
An LCD monitor is very lightweight
when.compared to a CRT monitor with

NEW Mini Implants

Stabilization of Dentures.


117 NE Hwy 351 -*. Cross City, FL


Citizens of Dixie County,

It has been a very busy week. I have listened and answered a lot of
questions and concerns. One of the questions I have been presented
is about experience. Over the years, I have worked faithfully in sev-
eral capacities and businesses that give me a unique advantage over
my fellow opponents.
I have over 10 years experience in banking. Currently, as a Bank
Teller II with Capital City Bank, Bank Teller with First Federal Sav-
ings & Loan, and a Trust Operation Specialist with United Carolina
Bank in North Carolina some years ago. With UCB I was entrusted
with custodial accounts worth millions of dollars in stocks and bonds
and I received several advancement positions while on their staff.
I have experience working in a Chiefland real-estate office as a
bookkeeper and was promoted to Office Manager. I took classes in
Ocala, FL at a technical school and graduated 2nd in my class of 23
students as a Medical Assistant. I was one of the two in our class to
pass the State Radiology Exam.


Tech the same viewable area.
They consume much less
Y power. They have a small
footprint (take up less
space on your desk) as they
o rs are much smaller than the
CRT. Another great feature
of the LCD is.that they are very stylish.
Looking at them side-by-side, it is no
wonder that LCDs seem to be heading
for the dominant share of the market.
LCD monitors are not affected by mag-
netism, and therefore the speakers used
with the computer can forego the ex-
pensive process of magnetic shielding,
thereby reducing the cost of the speak-
er. LCD monitors also do not emit elec-
tromagnetic radiation, as CRTs do.
While, the CRTs lead laden glass shields
you from much of the radiation, some
does get through. Some people prefer
LCDs simply for this reason.

However, LCD monitors are not all sun-
shine and rainbows. They tend to have
lower response rates than CRTs, caus-
ing image "ghosting", although this has
been nearly eliminated in newer mod-
els. Their cost can be prohibitive. Even
though they consume less electricity,
they may be worse for the environment
that previously thought.

It has recently come to light that a gas,
Nitrogen Trifluoride, is used in the
manufacture of some LCD monitors. It
seems that at the time of the ratifica-
tion of the Kyoto protocol the gas was
manufactured in such low quantities
that is got under the radar. Now produc-
tion has increased dramatically, and
manufacturers are looking to produce
more next year. While a particular safe-
ty sheet on the chemical quite clearly
states "No known ecological damage
caused by this product" on the next line
it lists its "Global Warming Factor".
C02 (carbon dioxide) has a factor of 1.
NF3 (nitrogen trifluoride) has a factor
of 8000. Some manufacturers don't use
the chemical in their monitors. Per-
haps, as the chemical is replaceable,
other manufacturers should be encour-
aged to follow suit.
Well, that's all I have room for right
now, next week I'll try to find out how to
properly dispose of computer parts.

Upon returning home to Dixie County, I was fortunate to get a posi-
tion in the Clerk's office. My title was Administrative Assistant/Deputy Clerk serving as Clerk Assistant to the Board of County
Commissioners. I had many responsibilities. My main duties was to prepare the agenda, handle resolutions and ordinance records, at-
tend meetings, prepare and copy minutes into official record books, help employees or public citizens with searches, advertise zoning
changes, assist Sub-Division records update, handle correspondence regarding decisions made by the BCC or the Clerk regarding.
BCC matters. I worked in close contact with the County Attorney, County Coordinator, Commission Chairman, Building & Zoning
Official, thus, making me familiar with county government and county regulations.
Processing Tax Deed applications was another of my responsibilities which consists of collection of fees, advertising, notify owner,
mortgage holders, adjoining owners as instructed by application from the Tax Collector, hold sale, issue tax deedtand keep records on
file. I.handled the Value Adjustment Proceeding for the Clerk the last year of my employment,
I am cross-trained and have experience in County Court proceedings, Evictions, Recording of Official Records, and procedures for

of supplies and equipment. I served on copnmittees for the Clerk and County Commissioners. J also have experience doing payroll,
processing workers compensation claims, federal reports (retirement, social security, etc...), data entry, working with the Develop-
ment Planning Council, airport development and construction projects.
Experience, it does entail a lot. The most experience is not one that has been in one county on one job for a longperiod of time but
one working in different capacities of responsibilities. I am proud of being a Dixie County resident and a graduate of Dixie County

SPRINGHOUSE QUILTER'S NEWS

Springhouse Quilter's night group had a treat and a
challenge last Tuesday night as Mary Kay Lucas and
Lois Scott, shared information on making an "X
block" quilt. A designer has developed these special
rulers for cutting and shaping a quilt using either.
nine-patch blocks or 3 1/2 inch strips to make these
wonderful, easy, fast blocks that are similar to a
stack-and-whack quilt. Even the cut-away fabric is
used in the quilt which results in very little, if any,
waste from cutting up the nine-patch blocks or the 3
1/2 inch strips. It sounds difficult but these quilts are
quick to make and are very easy to match seams and
corners. Fifteen of the night group members enjoyed
the demonstration with some of. the ladies getting
into making the quilt by cutting and sewing the fab-
:,ric into blocks. This is a project that can be complet-
ed quickly since after the cutting all sewing is done
by machine. The waste fabric from cutting is all
pieced together and used in making a border for the
quilt.

Springhouse always welcomes quests and has enjoyed
a 100 membership 'year. The beginner classes this
year were full and there are currently new members
now waiting for the next new-member class. The
class will be scheduled when enough new members
join the guild to fill a class which will probably be af-
ter the new year begins.

Beverly Shobe, special project leader, reported during
the last meeting that Springhouse has donated over
100 pillow cases for use by children cancer patients at
Shands. This is a volunteer project which has been
very successful this year. The guild is also donating
lab quilts and quillows to Another Way, a program for
helping abused individuals.

For information on Springhouse Quilters, contact
Lois Scott, 352-463-2207.

PoicaAdvertisement PaidobrandAppmvedbyDana Cannon fohnson,
Democrafor Clerk of Cout,


On June 18th, the Dixie
County Senior Beta Club
headed to Myrtle Beach,
South Carolina to the
Twenty-Eighth Annual
National Beta Club Con-
vention. The club compet-
ed and placed in several
areas; in the area of on
site art Alyssia "AJ"
Jenkins placed 5th in the
On-Site Acrylic Art com-
petition where she had to
interpret the colors of
Beta, Brittany Parks com-
peted in the Social Stud-
ies competition and
placed 6th and Lee Good-
son, Tyler Johnson, and
Lysha Martin brought
their first-place state ban-
ner to nationals and
placed 9th nationally.
This is the first time stu-
dents from the Dixie
County High School Beta
Club have placed nation-
ally in the art, academic
and banner areas. In ad-
dition, Tyler Johnson
competed in the On Site
Colored Pencil competi-
tion and Dillon Raker ran
for Natiohal President.

The club's main goal was'
to elect Dillon Raker Na-
tional Beta President.
Dillon is currently the
State Beta President of
Florida. Now this was no
easy task to accomplish
Dixie County has had
only one previous Nation-
'al Beta President Todd
Mitchell in 2001 and one
National Beta Vice Presi-
dent Robert Robinson in
2004. Dillon's campaign


slogan was 'Dill or No
Deal', playing on the pop-
ular game show 'Deal or
No Deal'. Dillon and the
club did an amazing job
campaigning, but unfor-
tunately in the end it was
a girl from Missouri who
was named National Pres-
ident. Even though Dil-
lon didn't win National
President, the club stilA
feels thankful that they
have the State Beta Presi-
dent of .Florida to lead
them through the upcom-
ing school year.

The Dixie County Beta
Club would like to thank

There is not a regular business
meeting in July for the Dixie
County Historical Society, but
we are planning to gather at the
Cultural Center for a genealogy
session.
We invite anyone interested in
sharing or learning more about
their ancestors to join with us
at 5:00 PM at the genealogy
room on Monday, July 21th. Af-
ter our last business meeting,
we held a round table informa-
tion exchange on the Preston
Brooks Chavous family We
have not decided on a family
name to feature at our next in-
formation exchange, so maybe
it could be a name that you are
interested in. Stop by and see us
any Friday from 10:00 AM to
2:00 PM and the first and third


Saturday of each month, same
time.
Our interest is in helping oth-
ers do research for their family
tree. If you have ever wanted to
start filling in your family tree,
wondered how to get started,
needed some encouragement,
we do hope that you will stop by
and visit us. We are building
our library of research infor-
mation and tools for your use.
Please consider joining us. We
would sure like to see you there.
Our Cultural Center is located
at the corner of S 349 and 55A
in Old Town. The phone num-
ber is 352-542-0047 or you can
call Beth Palmer (498-2201), Bet-
ty Mikell (386-935-4842) or Sher-
ry Ragsdale (542-7410) Hope to
see you soon.

Manatee Deaths over July 4th

Holiday Emphasize Threats


Between Friday July 4th
and Monday July 7th,
2008, six manatees were
recovered and confirmed
to have died from water-
craft collisions through-
out Florida. The mana-
tees were recovered in
Brevard, Citrus, Duval,
Pinellas, and Sarasota
counties, with two of the
watercraft mortalities oc-
curring in
Pinellas
County


Another

carcass re-
covered on
July 7th was
identified at
necropsy as
Dundee, a
manatee be-
ing tracked
by the Man-


[One of the M


atee Rehabili- I
station Partnership
(MRP). Dundee was born
in captivity in 1986 and
was first released into the
wild in 2006. At necropsy,
a large tangle of monofil-
ament fishing line, plas-
tic, a lead weight, and a
metal swivel were found
in Dundee's small intes-
tine.


This material caused a
formational change in


the small intestine, which
then resulted in a block-
age that ultimately
caused his death.

Holidays are not the only
dangerous times for man-
atees. On June 29th, a
manatee mother and her
calf were rescued in
Crystal River after the
mother suffered a water-


by Florida's manatees

to these documented cas-

reported in Florida,
which are near-record to-

From CITY, page one

Ms. Robson has started a
grass roots project to
trap, neuter and release
as many as she can get
her hands on. Starting
with a colony of 50 in
Cross City, she has found
a clinic which will neuter
for $35 per animal, and
has a retired veterinary
who will work for the
greater good. Currently
they are handling 8 to 10
per month with the help
of City Hall, who have
provided a location for
the required surgeries.
The location is being kept
secret as the fear is that
irresponsible owners will
drop animal off nearby
and run away, thus exac-
erbating the problem.
Ms. Robson wishes to
continue her, as yet un-
paid, work and has
reached a point where
she needs to expand.

Other communities,
Alachua and Cedar Key,
are having success' with
these programs and it is
hoped that the city coun-
cil will be able to offer
some financial support in
the future. Mike Cassidy
informed us that when
city workers have had to
deal with these issues it
costs time and money
and detracts from their
other important work, so

zens at-
tended, in-
cluded Mr.
Henry,
who, out
of con-
cern for public safety,
brought to the council's
attention the current
state of Peppers park and
the adjacent roadway,
Oliver Street. The park,
will be cleared, buildings
and all, as soon as work
crews are available and
' Mr. Green, the city super-
intendent, will inspect
the road and initiate the
necessary pot hole filling.
Mike Cassidy informed
us that the park has been
re-fenced 6 times over his
4 year tenure and every
time has been destroyed.
This is in part why the
new park is where it is.
The City is making a pos-
itive stand, if any of the
city parks, which have
been constructed using
substantial amounts of
your tax dollars and are
there for the enjoyment
of all, are vandalized,
they will be closed until
proper repairs can be
made. You abuse it, we all
lose it.

Mr. Henry also addressed'
the ongoing issues with
youngsters not having ac-
tivities available to them
during the summer. Mike
Cassidy responded that
there are programs with-
in Dixie with over 1,000
opportunities every year
for youngsters to partici-
pate in sporting activi-
ties. These include his
own, extra curricular, ef-
forts with the soccer pro-
gram. Little league, foot-
ball and basketball are
also thriving programs
available within the
county


necessary paperwork in '
preparation for the next
election, and an ordi-
nance abolishing the po-
sition of Mayor as of Jan:,
uary 1st, 2011. The curry
rent Mayor Lee has al- -
ready been assigned pa-
rade duties and the other i
responsibilities of the of-
fice will be administered
by the Council's Presi- F
dent and vice-president. i

Consideration is being
given to omitting light
bars from future purchas-,
es of police vehicles in an,
effort to reduce fuel con-
sumption. ,

To assist Mr. Green with I
his increased workload,
the council are looking
into hiring some help for
30 40 days during the
summer. Work crews who'
do much of the clean up
work around the city are
redirected to perform f
maintenance around the *
schools which can only
be done while they are
out of sess.ip9.,,, j,

Waste Pro have requested
that the annual increase
of $1, negotiated under
contract with the city,
scheduled for October on,
residential pickups be
moved forward by 1 or 2 ,
months, and that a 15%
increase be attached to
commercial pickups to
assist them with their in-
creased fuel costs. The
contract was approved
under city ordinance and;
would therefore require
public hearings to be
amended.

Lots of people, like my crunchy, organic friend Shana
Hamilton, don't like chemicals for some reason or an-
other. Bug sprays from the store are also really ex-
pensive. If you don't want to spend $7.00 the Deep
Woods Off, try these make-it-yourself insect repel-
lents with stuff from your kitchen and bathroom cab-
inets,

, eMosquito Spritzer:
Lemon and/or orange peels
Mint leaves and/or sage leaves
Rubbing alcohol or witch hazel

Make a strong tea with the citrus and leaves. Leave
it to soak overnight in a covered pot. Strain it the
next day and mix it half and half with the alcohol or
witch hazel and put it in a spray bottle. Use it to
spray yourself before you go outside at dawn or dusk.

Dog Flea Repellent (not for cats!!)

Citrus peels
Water

Boil your leftover citrus peels just like for the mos-
quito spritzer, above. Let them soak overnight, and
then give your dog a bath and pour the "tea" over the
dog as a finishing rinse and rub it in. Your dog will
smell great and it'll repel and kill fleas.

For an extra kick, you can add pennyroyal oil to ei-
ther mixture, but not if you're pregnant or want to
be so. Lavender essential oil is also good.


We wouldlike to thank the Stephensonfor fire works diy -
playput on fr are whole community to enjoy, it made a
great evening. It was very thoughtful to provide thisfor us
all we all had a lot offum,


Thank you, Tim andLindaBartell

Road, which is of the highest priority,
and the turn lane projects on SR 349

well. Mr. Henderson responded this is
one of the things DOT is looking at and
paved road shoulders are a very impor-
tant project because they save us mon-
ey in the long run. Mr. Henderson re-
minded the Board he was here to re-'

industry fills the
airwaves with the

most virulent,
scurrilous, wall-to-wall

character
assassination of
nearly every political

practitioner in the

country and then
declares itself puzzled
that America has lost

trust in its politicians.

FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH NEWS

We had a very large crowd this morning, Bro. Jackie
delivered his usual good messages, the special music
was superb and the Spirit was very strong among us.
We had two people move their letters to Faith and
join our fellowship. In the morning service, Heather
started the service with "Thank God for My Christian
Home", then later in the service our all male trio con-
sisting of Jim Fisher, Kacie Crenshaw and Tommy
McQueen sang "The Old Ship of Zion". In the
evening service the Brittons sang "I Want to Stroll
Over Heaven with You". All did outstanding jobs.
Our Vacation Bible School started tonight and we had
about 30 young folks, plus the teachers and other
workers in the back. God continues to bless Faith.
If you missed either service today, you truly missed
a blessing. We'd like to invite you to come out next
week and join in with us. Sunday School starts at
9:45 AM, Church at 11:00, then Sunday night our
evening services start at 7:00 PM. Come out and join
us for all the services.
Vacation Bible School goes through Friday night
the 18th and that will be the commencement service
for the little ones. Come out and support them with
your attendance.
Remember this week to pray for the sick, the ones
in the hospitals, the ones having surgery, and espe-
cially the lost.


Please study the plan of

NEW PROSPECT BAPTIST

NEWS
According to all reports, our Retreat at the River last
week was again a huge success, with good Christian
fellowship, prayer, recreation, and plenty of good
food. Again, we thank Sister Michelle and all the oth-
ers who helped with the organization and implemen-
tation of this much-anticipated annual event. On
Sunday, it was good to be back in church at New
Prospect. Our choir and musicians were in near-per-
fect sync, and Bro. Billy delivered two of God's mo-
mentous messages with much Spiritual inspiration,
choosing his texts from Hebrews 11:16 and 1st
Corinthians 15:1-11 morning and evening, respective-
ly

Our monthly Church Business Meeting is scheduled
for Wednesday night, this week. On Wednesday

Community Gospel Sing at NPBC...mark your calen-
dar, please come out and listen to some good gospel
music and enjoy the fine fellowship!

Our world situation seems precarious at best, all the
more reason to keep praying to our Heavenly Father.
Please pray for all those on the various church prayer
lists, our military personnel, and our President and
other leaders on national, state, and local levels. Re-
member, we would love to have you visit with us at
NPBC...all welcome! Have a good week, and may God
bless.
