The JV.Bears took to the
road to play Chiefland on
Thursday evening. The
Bears presented a strong
defense, and used the of-,
fense to pressure the In-
dians throughout the
game.


county Mosquito,
Control Director,
Joe Ruth, has re-
quested Dixie County res-
idents to have a little pa-
tience with his mosquito-
spraying.trucks. Due to
the heavy rains and
standing water left cour-
tesy of Tropical Storm
Fay, demand for spraying
is peaking.

Mosquito control staff
must do "landing counts"
in order to document a
need for spraying. 12

A penalty in the fourth
quarter stopped a scoring
run, and let Chiefland get.
the ball, with less than,
minute on the clock. The
Indians scored, driving
the game into overtime.
The score was 12-12 going
into overtime, and the


Bears scored on the third
down. Chiefland lost the
ball on the last play after
the Bears batted it away,
ending the game at 18-12.
The JV Bears play New-

'Skeeter Spraying

Patience Urged


mosquitoes must land on
the worker in one minute
in order to justify that
day's spray. Alternative-
ly, 20 complaints from res-
idents about mosquito
populations can also al-
,low spraying. .

The County makes every
attempt to avoid morning
spraying so that children
waiting at bus stops will
not be affected, so often-'
times, workers must
spray on Sundays. The
insecticide used is very
costly; one typical day
is a half-barrel of the
ff at a cost of $950.
- H .
ankfully, the Depart-
nt of Agriculture
'ayed the county by air
Monday evening. The
squito outbreak is con-
-.tered a health hazard


and FEMA and the state
picked up the bill.

County mosquito trucks
have been updated with
equipment that allows a
steady flow of bug-killer,
regardless of the speed of
the truck, up to 25 m.p.h,
allowing the trucks to
cover a larger area faster
than was previously pos-
sible. "There are 86 vari-
eties of mosquitoes," stat-
ed Mr. Ruth, and spraying
can't be accomplished
during rain or wind.

Larvacide "briquets" tre
available to landowners
with non-stocked ponds
or standing water, and
county trucks will enter
private property and'
spray with permission.

tails.

he Chiefland Indians ended the
Bears long run, as champions in the
cross river rivalry, by beating the
Bears on the Dixie home turf. The
final score was Indians 28 to the Bears 21.
Both teams came into Friday night's big
game looking to start the season off with a
win, but the Bears, in a series of missed op-
portunities allowed themselves to be bested,.
by a tough playing Indian club. Coach Wilk-
erson commented that his squad had too
many turnovers and missed tackles. He also
said, "We just have to get better and not let
this slow us down, we have a long season
ahead of us."

The Bears did have some outstanding per-
formances during the game as Scott, Aiken,
and West helped the Bears hold off the Indi-
ans most of the night. The Bears drew first
blood in the second quarter on a long series
of plays, culminated by Scot scooting in the
end zone on a handoff from Keen. Fresh-
man Zack Cassidy looking like a seasoned
.pro, added the extra point for a Dixie 7-0
lead.

The Indians answered with three minutes
to go to the half, by posting their own seven
points to tie the game.

Swanson Returns


to Commission


(TV ixie County Hu-
Smane Society's ,
Pamnela Swanson
appeared again before
the Commission in her .
ongoing battle to obtain
control of the County's
Animal Control Budget.
She cited an editorial
published previously by
the Advocate, saying that
"The:editor of the Advo-
cate says we're barking
up the wrong tree; she
may be right. We may
have to cut this tree down
and plant another one be-
fore we can be success-
ful." Swanson stated, that
her attorney was draw-
ing up a contract for the
Commission to sign, and
then repeated a laundry
list of perceived inade-
quacies in current ani-
mal control procedures.

She stated that she has
abandoned the idea of
building her own facility
Then she presented her
requirements for using
the county's current fa-
cility, including the de-,
mand that it be fenced,
inmates be prohibited
from the grounds, and

City Announces
Logo Contest
The Town of Cross City
announced Monday
evening that it would be
accepting submissions
for a new city logo. The
Council prefers that the
design is round or oval,
and must include "The.
Town of Cross City," and
"Established 1924," in a,
double border around a
central graphic. The
deadline for submissions
will be November 24. The
winner will receive $100
and an invitation to the
City's safety party Sub-
missions may be dropped
off at City Hall.

The Council also had the

ing Resolutions on set-
ting the rollback rate for
property taxes at 6.746

County Attorney
Leenette McMillan re-
peatedly and patiently
stated to Ms. Swanson, as
she did at the previous
meeting, that "We have to
go through a bid process:
it's impossible to consid-
er this proposal without
going through the bid
process." Ms. Swanson
did not defer to the coun-
ty's insistence on stick-

to beat Obama in November. Give it up, and learn the art of social manipulation
and back-room negotiation, which is necessary in


What finally got Ann on McCain's side was his
choice of Sarah Palin for VP. There is absolutely no
way that Ann Coulter could get mad at Sarah Palin, a
gun-totin' frontier gal type with the smarts to get
elected Governor of Alaska and clean up one of the
most corrupt political machines that side of Chicago,
raise five kids and still stay good-looking after forty.
Like a number of other conservatives, Ann didn't
count John McCain as her favorite Republican con-
tender. He "wasn't conservative enough." Perhaps,
but he was quite possibly the most electible candidate
in the GOP mix. The reason that matters is that the
only way Republicans can win presidential elections
is by persuading independent voters and conservative
Democrats to get on board. As a senator, McCain has
proven that he can work across the aisle to get things
done, not all of which I would agree with, but the
point here is that this broadens his appeal to non-
committed voters. A good example of that ability is
his endorsement by Senator Joe Liberman, an "old
school" Democrat-turned-Independent after Democ-
rats in his home state (Connecticut) spurned him for
his support of the war effort.
Ann's non-support of McCain was qualified by her
contention that she would vote for Hillary She never
extended that to Obama, to whom she refers as "B.
Hussein Obama," emphasizing a middle name that
the candidate doesn't seem to want emphasized. And
now she appears willing to vote for McCain because
Sarah Palin is on the ticket. I guess all's well enough
that ends pretty good.
And then we have Oprah Winfrey, the queen of after-
noon TV She could change her mind, but the way it
looked last weekend was that she wasn't going to put
Sarah Palin on her show. Sure, she's made her mark
in the industry by interviewing high-profile guests,
but she's willing to make an exception in Palin's case
because she is supporting Barack Obama and has
been just about ever since he decided to run for presi-
dent.
Perhaps Oprah has bought a controlling interest in
ABC-TV with the millions they've paid her. Other-
wise, I really don't know how she gets by with using
her show to promote her favorite candidates, while
keeping others who would boost ratings from appear-
ing. (She even kept Supreme Court Justice Clarence
Thomas off her show.) After all, ratings are what ad-
vertising rates are based on, and that's what brings in
the revenue. Sarah Palin could pull astronomical rat-
ings, but Oprah is sold on helping Obama, so no dice.
Well, at least not before the election, when an ap-
pearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show could benefit
Sarah Palin. But Oprah would just love to have her on
after the election. At which time, I would hope that,
win or lose, Sarah Palin would have the integrity to
tell Oprah Winfrey to put her offer'where the sun
don't shine. (And of course, I'm talking about the
north slope of Alaska in December.)


small towns. This ain't New York, and that guy you
threatened and blustered at yesterday is going to be
behind you in line at Foodland tomorrow. Be nice.

FAMILY IS JOB ONE. In small towns, it doesn't mat-
ter if you are the richest guy in thecounty: if you
treat your family shabbily, you are pond scum, and,
everybody will talk about you behind your back. Like-
wise, you will lose no social points if you throw ambi-
tion to the winds to work at a dead-end job your entire
life so that you can live in a trailer in your mama's
front. yard so that you can help hernhow that she's not
getting around so good anymore. If you cheat or beat
on your wife, be prepared to face the wrath of her
brothers or daddy If you put your elderly parent in a
nursing home, take over the homestead and go to
spending her money, people will shun you at Sunday
school. You vote and campaign for your cousin, even
if you know his "paddles don't quite hit the water,"
because he's family, and that's what matters. We
"small town folk" hire relatives instead of outsiders.
Family sticks together. That's just how we roll.


Eyesore

To the Editor:

Recently I had the opportunity to travel to Tallahassee
and back from my home in Dixie County. I was remind-
ed again of the beauty of our area, from the capitol,
right through to the Suwannee nature at its best!

Sadly, the first real sight of this great river is totally
erased when the "private landfill" is spotted directly on
the opposite side. We all know this spot,.It has been a
graveyard of old mobile homes for quite some time.
Now, however, it has become an EYESORE!

Who owns this parcel? Why has this property not been
cited? Do we have a county code enforcement agent?
What about the Health Department? I'm sure at some
point the County Commission for this area drives past
this disease of garbage.

The property owners) should be made to clean this
up, and cited if.not. The county has the means (equip-
ment) and man power to do this! Bill the site owner for
the expenses, and if they don't pay place a lein on the
property Imagine how the County could then use that
spot as a scenic wayside rest stop for all travellers
through our area. At the very least the powers that be
need to use their authority to get this cleaned up.

I'm writing this on Saturday afternoon, for a change,
out lazing in the hammock on my trusty MacBook
while the kids play water guns all over the yard.
(Which, thankfully, Robert Owens came and mowed
this -week, so the mosquitos aren't eating us up.
Thanks, Bobby!!)

I normally write on Sunday, when the kids are gone
and its quiet, but I've really just had enough of fold-
ing laundry and the endless chatter on
television...lurking hurricanes and politicians telling
me that they are all about "small town values." I
mean, really, what are small town values, anyway? Do
those of us who live out here in the world of dial-up
internet, electric co-ops, and taking our own garbage
to the dump have a corner on morality somehow?

By "values," I don't think they mean "morals" or
"ethics," as you would think. What they really mean

BE YOURSELE. There's no point in "putting on airs"
in.a small town. We know who you really are, anyway.
Everybody in town knows about that time in the tenth,
grade when you got caught by the Highway Patrol
with the case of beer and the cheerleaders in the back
of your daddy's truck. Everybody knows you're in
debt up to your eyeballs and the bank is getting ready
to repo your car (again.) We know you grew up in a
trailer, wearing hand-me-down clothes. (And we don't
care, because most of us did, too.) Wearing fancy
clothes, expensive jewelry, driving a car that costs
more than a doublewide or living in a big fancy house
is not going to impress people here. Again, those $400
shoes may be all the rage in Palm Beach, but if you
wear them to go eat mullet and swamp cabbage on Fri-
day at the Cypress Inn we're going to laugh at you and
mock you as "uppity" Like John Cougar Mellencamp
says, "I can be who I am in a small town." There's no
point in trying to be anybody else.

town America. While it's not neces-

cal sacred thing is, you don't spend
a better subject your time tearing it down. You don't

William Penn handcuff yourself to deer stands in
the name of "animal rights" and you
bow your head and pray (or pretend
......................................... to) when everybody else does, even if
you're an atheist. You may think the Ten Command-
ments Monument in front of the courthouse is a bad
idea; if you do, shut up. We don't want to hear about
it, and if you go on Fox News or to the ACLU com
plaining about it, be prepared for public (and private)
condemnation.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR OWN. In small towns, we have
to look out for each other; nobody else is going,to do it
for us: We can't depend on some huge, faceless chair-
ty to take care of people, so that we don't have to be
bothered. We call our elderly neighbors to make sure
they're doing all right after a bad storm, we buy Girl
Scout cookies so the kids can go camping, and we
gather up baby clothes for single moms when their
houses burn down. We feed stray dogs. We fiercely
defend our county when outsiders (and sometimes, in-
siders) try to make us look stupid and "country" We
support local businesses when we can. We sponsor
soccer teams, and join Rotary and give our change to
the firemen with the boots at the redlight. We send
Myspace bulletins to all of our "friends" asking for
prayer for a sick child. We feed grieving families,
when maybe the prayer didn't seem to work.

We may not be sophisticated or popular on the Wash-
ington cocktail circuit, but this year, the people who
are, are paying attention to us. Our "small town val-
ues" may not make us rich, or famous, but they do
make us very special in this world of "me first" and
"dog eat dog." Maybe it's time to celebrate them a lit-
tle bit more.

Shooting in Bobo's


Trailer Park


On Saturday evening at approximately
7:30PM, deputies with the Dixie County
Sheriff's Office responded to SE 148 Av-
enue of Old Town in reference to a possi-
ble shooting. When the first deputy ar-
rived on scene he discovered to-Hispanic
males lying on the ground. Both males
had injuries to their head area and at
least one of the males had what ap-
peared to be a gunshot wound to the
head.
EMS and additional deputies soon ar-
rived and the victims were transported
to Gainesville hospitals. During the
course of the investigation, deputies


were able ascertain a suspect vehicle de-
scription while conducting a neighbor-
hood canvass of SE 148 Avenue. A short
time later one of the deputies was able
to locate the suspect vehicle and during
a subsequent search found items of evi-
dence that might indicate a connection
to the case. The vehicle was impounded
along with these items for continuing in-
vestigative purposes.
One of the victims has since been re-
leased from the hospital and has been in-
terviewed by law enforcement. The sec-
ond victim was awaiting surgery and his
injuries do not appear life threatening.


Intentional
Head-on
On Friday night, at
around 7:40 PM Cynthia
Cobb and Thomas
Phillips got into an argu-
ment in the area of Indi-
an Trails Road in the
Old Town Hammock.
The two, who were dri-
ving vehicles, separated,
apparently in opposite di-
rections. Mr. Phillips, ar-
riving at the intersection
of NE 305 Ave and 544 St,
realized that Cynthia
Cobb had turned around
and was heading
straight for him. He
tried to move his van out
of her path, but she
steered her '87 Dodge
into his vehicle, in
which were an adult pas-
senger and three juve-
niles.
Two persons were re-
portedly transported to
the hospital, one was air-
lifted. Ms. Cobb has been
charged with 5 counts of
aggravated battery, but
no arrests have been
made at this time.

Previously, co-defendant Jose Navarrete
entered a guilty plea for conspiracy to
harbor and to harboring undocumented
foreign nationals for financial gain as
well as possession of false documents,
identify theft and re-entry after being de-
ported. Jose Navarrete faces up to 37
years in prison.

The prosecution of human trafficking
offenses is a top priority of the Justice
Department. In the last seven fiscal
years, the Civil Rights Division, in con-
- junction with the U.S. Attorneys' Offices,
has increased by nearly seven-fold the
number of human trafficking cases filed
in court as compared to the previous
seven fiscal years. In fiscal year 2007, the
Departmentobtained a record number
of convictions in human trafficking
prosecutions.

This case was investigated by agents
from the Bureau of Immigration and
Customs Enforcement, the Federal Bu-
reau of Investigation, and investigators
from the Collier County Sheriffs Depart-
ment. Victim assistance was provided by
the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and
the Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center.
This case is being prosecuted by Trial
Attorneys Susan French and Adriana
Vieco of the Justice Department's Civil
Rights Division and Chief Assistant U.S.
Attorney Doug Molloy of the Middle
District of Florida.

A.Message from Matt,

From Above
One month ago I was trying to get
home to my family I don't know
where you were going, but I paid the
ultimate price for your mistake. They
said it was a hit-and-run. I in my
thoughts lying there on the side of
Sthe road, on Hwy 349, was making God
to forgive you. On the other hand, this
Continues to be hard for my family.
You have not shown yourself. Why?
,, :From heaven, I know who you are
and so does God. But my family does-
n't know who you are. They want to
know why you left me to die like the
dogs that uncaring people drop off. As I look down from heaven, I see the pain in my
family's hearts. Can you sleep at night? I'm just wondering... because they can't.
How do you feel in the mornings when you wake up? Do you think of me? They do.
As you are eating your lunchm do you think of me? They do. And at night, when my
kids are being tucked into bed, without me being there, do you think of me? They
do. I can hear their prayers. Carl you? If you could, then the right thing for you to do
is come forward to justice and answer these questions. When you are alone, do you
think about me? To let you know a little about myself, my name is Matt. Maybe
Maybe you might have been onw of those people I helped with your flat tire, or
maybe your brother's friend's car needed a jump. That might have been your mother
that ran out of gas. It could have been your sister who had car trouble one day I
made sure they were on their way home to their loving family As now, I only look
from heaven to see.
This is someplace I wish you would be able to see one day If that was left upto my
family, they wouldn't think you .deserve to be here. As we all know, we do have a for-
giving God. And I know my family, they too are able to forgive. But right now, only
God and myself know who to forgive. My family doesn't know who you are. They
want to be able to talk to, you. They want to be able to tell you what they have lost.
And then their hearts will be filled with forgiveness.
As you think about me, I can feel your guilt. Listen to me... this guilt will overcome
you. Please, give your heart and soul to God, and when you find God, he will guide
you. Then you will be able to have what I have now, which is pure love and happi-
ness.
See you again someday,
-Matt

The Black Diamond, lo-
cated just outside of Fan-
ning Springs on US 19,
has re-opened under the
direction of Chef
Jonathan, of England.
Jonathan, who has been
working in the restaurant
business for the last 47
years, has a keen eye for
truly great food. While he
was in England he had
the pleasure of serving
such notable figures as
Sean Connery, and even
the Queen herself.

"I was with working at
'The Old Windmill' in
South Hanningfield when
we received a call from
Mr. Connery's agent, who
made a reservation, and
requested the biggest,
Maine lobsters that we
could get," said Chef
Jonathan. "Maine lob-
sters were a bit difficult
to procure, in South Han-,
ningfield at that time, but
I managed to get three of
them between three and
six pounds each. When
Mr. Connery arrived,
they were all dressed in
Califdrnia attire, I told'
them that they would
have to wear a jacket and
tie, as per our dress code,
and provided them with a
few from our rack. They
proceeded to put on the
coats, but put the ties on
backwards! There was
nothing in our dress code
that'said that the ties had
to be forwards, so they
ate the entire meal like
that."

Jonathan was sent to
Fort Lauderdale, FL circa
1975 by his partners, his
mission was to open a


is Back

restaurant which would-
be supported by the part-
ners, and run by him.
Upon Chef Jonathan's ar-
rival in Florida, his busi-
ness associates promptly
backed out, effectively
stranding him. Undaunt-
ed, Chef Jonathan
opened his first restau-
rant, iLittle John'si in
1976. Since, he has owned
and operated several
restaurants here in Flori-
da, and most recently has
opened The Black Dia-
mond once again for busi-
ness.

"Enough of the Chefs
life story," I'm sure you're
saying now, so I'll move
on to the food. The first
thing I had at The Black
Diamond was a sample of
their fine shrimp. The
shrimp, which was
served chilled, was ex-
quisite. They were, in
fact, some of the. largest I
have seen in quite some,
time, they were cooked to
perfection and served
with an excellent cocktail
sauce. Of course, we all
know that shrimp are
rather hard to spoil. I
then tried the iBangers
and Mashi which was one
of the more simple menu
items. iBangers and
Mashi translates from
Irish into American.
roughly as iSausages and
Mashed 'Tatersi but don't
let the seemingly com-
mon nature of the fare
fool you. The meal stood
far above any I've recent-
ly had the pleasure of
eating. The sausage was
of the highest quality, the
gravy was superb, the
mushrooms that rolled


about the plate were also
cooked perfectly, not over-
done as is so commonly
seen in the cooking of
mushrooms, and the
mashed potatoes, well I've
never seen their match.
To my dismay, I found
that the vegetables that
were served with the
meal were peas and car-
rots. Allow my to be quite
clear, I don't like peas and
carrots. Being a fair per-
son, and one with a bit of
an adventurous streak, I
tried the peas and car-
rots... I was amazed. It ap-
pears that I was wrong in
assuming that I disliked.
peas and carrots. It seems
that they just have to be
cooked properly. Like all
of Chef Jonathan's veg-
etables, they were fresh,
and cooked just enough
to leave them with a de-
lightful texture. I actually
had to force myself away
from the vegetable mix-
ture that previously been
an object of disdain, in
order to save room for the
very ample portions of
everything else.

The Black Diamond
restaurant is one of the
finest eateries I have had
the pleasure of ever
walking into. The decor
is subtle, the atmosphere
subdued and very person-
al. The waitresses are of
the highest calibre in the
area. The menu is filled
with such a variety of de-
licious meals, that the
hardest part of your visit
will undoubtedly be de-
ciding upon the nature of
your feast.

nious bit of the idea is
this: the station is de-
signed to produce its own
electricity... somewhere
in the 30 megawatt range.

These floating systems
will use the power of the
waves to rhythmically
rock a ~1 square kilome-
ter array of pontoons
with electrical generators
attached to them. As such
a large, compacted com-
puter system will invari-
ably produce a large
quantity of heat, heat-ex-
changers will effectively
use the ocean itself as a
huge heat-sink, using sea-
water to cool the comput-
ers. The systems could be
used for a multitude of
purposes, ostensibly
shortening the length of
thewires that data has to
traverse to get to certain
locations. With the kind
of computing power that
these floating processing
banks will invariably
have at their beck and
call, other uses could be
devised. One of these sta-
tions could effectively \
handle telecommunica-
tions for a small country.
In the event of a disaster
a electrically self-suffi-
cient communications

equipment and the wrong

they seem.

Shired Island News


County Commissioner Valentine strikes a pose in front of the new septics


In 2006 Shired Island made headlines as the dirtiest,
beach in the Nation. As we have all heard there were
elevated bacteria levels in the water during the win-
ter months. DNA testing indicated a high probability
that the bacteria was derived from migratory birds
and water fowl that reside at Shired Island.

Dixie Soil & Water Conservation District and the Dix-
ie County Board of County Commissioners have been
hard at work to improve this wonderful habitat that
is enjoyed by many residents and visitors-of Dixie
County With a risk of bacteria entering the enviro-
ment a new septic and drain field was placed at the
camp site area along with a new RV Dump station,
this was achieved with a grant that was given to the
Dixie Soil & Water Conservation District from Suwa-
nee River Water Management District.

The next two projects that are in the works are the
new bathroom facilities and of course a much needed
new road. For a peaceful moment and a look at what
nature is really about take a trip to Shired Island and
enjoy the beauty Thanks go out to BOCC, DOH, SR-
WMD and all the supervisors and employees with
DSWCD.

by Art Wyckoff
Recession, politics and
hurricanes have been the
main topics of discussion
these days. The hurri-
canes and tropical
storms have brought on
some significant rainfall
that has influenced our
daily lives, depending
upon. what storm cell
passed over our own
house.
I thought I would take
the opportunity to ad-
dress a few issues that
present themselves in
your garden during this
type of weather. WIND
DAMAGE: Check for any
branches or limbs that
have broken off to deter-
mine the extent of the
damage. If the bark is
torn or shredded, be sure
to cut off all of the affect-
ed part. If you do not
trim these wounds, un-
wanted pests and disease,
may follow which could
.slowly destroy your tree
or shrub. You may want
to consider applying
medication to the wound
in the form of tree paint
to seal the cut and pre-
vent infections. LOSS OF
LEAVES: Due to the high
winds, your shrub may
have'had a large amount
of its leaves stripped off
and / or they turned
brown and stressed. Mon-
itor the shrub during the
next few days, give it a
snack of liquid fertilizer
which takes effect quick-
ly This should replenish'
some of the nitrogen that
was lost during the heavy
rains and wind. POTTED
PLANTS: Potted plants
and patio versions of
planters present their
own challenges during
these stormy days. Re-
member, windy condi-
tions dry out the leaves
exceptionally fast and
rob the plant of its mois-
ture. A potted plant relies
on YOU to care for it
more than if it was plant-
ed in the ground. The pot
itself is exposed to the
surrounding air and the


Valk in the

garden"

shape of the pot increas-
es the surface area ex-
posed to the climate.
What difference does that
make? A plants' roots
grow outward toward the
inside edges of the pot
which places them close
to the heat or cold weath-
er outside with little or
no protection. Where as
ground planted material
has the soil protecting
the roots and only needs
to deal with the trunk
and branches that are left
exposed. WATER
DRAINAGE: One major
problem, for potted plants
is with water drainage.
Compacted soil and root
bound plants create the
lack of proper water
drainage which leadsito
fungus, root rot and even-
tually death of the plant.
When you transfer any
plant to a decorative pot,
please remember to
check for proper
drainage and use a light-.
ly packed soil and maybe
pebbles at the very bot-
tom of the pot. In fact,
make sure you check
those beautifully colored
ceramic pots for drainage
holes period, as many are
made without the holes!
If you do purchase one
and get it home only to
find no holes; have fun
drilling holes in that.
cured ceramic.
As a final note for Sep-
tember, plan on fertiliz-
ing your trees and shrubs
one last time before win-
ter arrives; preferably
early in the month, so as
not to promote new leaf
growth for the November
frost to kill. Please keep
an open mind during
these days of recession,
hurricanes and polities
as there are many in-our
community that need a
special touch and word of
encouragement. "Give a
plant--- sow a friendship!"
Enjoy your walk in
YOUR garden and EN-
JOY life! Art and Karen

Small Farms

and

Alternative

Enterprises

Conference

Coming to

Florida


Small farms in Florida
have traditionally repre-
sented a quiet, little-
known part of the agri-
culture industry Led by
consumer demands, re-
cent changes have trig-
gered many new opportu-
nities to direct market
specialty products
throughout the state. Be-
cause the small farm in-
dustry in Florida has not
been highly visible, the
small farmers themselves
are not well defined.

What is a small farm?
The U.S. Department of
Agriculture defines a
small farm as one that
has gross annual sales of
$250,000 or less. The small
farm debate traditionally
has been over the value of
sales versus the farm's
acreage. The value of
sales basis is probably.
more appropriate, espe-
cially for Florida. This is
because very high-value
enterprises or products
such as greenhouse orna-
mentals or vegetables, cut
flowers or culinary herbs
can easily have a value of
more than $250,000 on
less than five or 10 acres.
Because Florida has so
many opportunities for
producing high-value
products, the classifica-


tion based on gross sales
is much more appropri-
ate. So, based on the
USDA definition, 90 per-
cent of the more than
40,000 farms in Florida
are small farms. The oth-
er common characteristic
of these operations is
they are family-oriented
farms dependent upon
the family for manage-
ment and labor. The
USDA further classifies
small farms based on the
family's primary motiva-
tion for farming. These
categories include: pri-
mary income, retirement,
lifestyle or limited re-
sources.

New consumer demands
for the development of
community-based food,
systems and specialty
products such as organic,
heirloom, hydroponic,
grass-fed beef, pastured
poultry, ethnic meats and
vegetables all provide op-
portunities for small
farmers to sustain a prof-
itable enterprise.

The opportunities are re-
sulting in a heightened
awareness of the small
farm industry A very
popular Web site for
small farmers was recent-
ly developed by the Uni-
versity of; Florida's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences and Flori-
da A&M University to
provide information on a.
wide variety of alterna-
tive enterprises, how to
get started on the small
farm, and a calendar of
events specifically for
small farmers. The site,
http://smallfarms.ifas.ufl
.edu, receives more than
70,000 hits month.


Additionally, a series of
regional small farm con-
ferences are held annual-
ly through the state,
reaching nearly 2,000 at-
tendees in 2007. This ris-
ing demand for informa-
tion has led to the organi-
zation of an even larger
event to bring small
farmers together. The re-
sult of these discussions
between farmers, related.
industry and educators is
the first Florida Small
Farms

and Alternative Enter-
prises Conference, Aug. 1-
2, 2009, at the Osceola
Heritage Park, Kissim-
mee, Fla. This event will
feature a large exhibitor
area, six concurrent edu-
cational sessions,(includ-
ing live animals in the
livestock arena), lunches
featuring local products
and a keynote speaker.
The event is being
planned by individuals
from throughout the in-
dustry, including farm-
ers, marketers, re-
searchers, Extension
agents, commodity orga-
nizations and industry
leaders. The conference
Web site is available at
http://smallfarms. ifas. ufl.
edu. This event will help
farmers network, learn
about new methods, bet-
ter organize as an indus-
try, develop plans to im-,
prove policy, and cele-
brate small farms.

Questions regarding con-
ference sponsorship, or
being an exhibitor, may
be directed to Extension
agent Bob Hochmuth,

NEWS
Wedding bells will be ringing at 5:00 P.MI. this Satur-
day for Kyle Welsh and Brittany Jones! Kyle is the
son of Marcia and Phil Bratcher, Wesley and Glenda
Welsh all of Steinhatchee. Brittany's parents are
Ricky and Janet Jones from Cross City! Their recep-
tion will be held in the fellowship hall!

Living in the U. S. we are experiencing global disas-
ters. The hurricanes are affecting us each year with
the damaging winds, rain, flooding, land slides, fires,
lightning and loss of lives. Maybe we can think of be-
ing a Christian is like being a boat out in the ocean.
That boat floats along through life, oh so happy,enjoy-
ing the sunshine, blue clear skies and beautiful rain-
bows! But, this boat has a tight heavy rope that goes
down to a strong anchor, it gives it strength! Just like
GOD holds us as Christians! Always there as our
strength! But, we will experience these storms of life
such as health problems, financial burdens, deaths,
divorce, a family crisis or serious disappointments,
sooner or later! Are you anchored tight? Is your an-
chor in life holding you up and ready to meet the
storms? Does the sin of the devil cutting your life-
line? Our worldly life may be cutting that rope that .If
so that boat will go into the endless sea or totally
sinks with no hope! Let's keep our life saving anchor
in GOD's word, GOD's promises and GOD's plan!
When we become a Christian, GOD buries all our sins
in the deepest sea... then HE posts a big sign that
says; NO FISHING! Yes the winds of love and grace
are always blowing but we have to raise the sail! Re-
member...The darkest clouds and storms often bring
the thickest showers of blessings. If you are looking
for a church home, we invite you to share ours! We
can praise GOD together! Build your life on the solid
foundation-JESUS CHRIST!

We are praying for our Pastor Leon Holden as he con-
tinues to under go tests this week. We do continue to
pray for Joe Hall, Bob Puckett, Wayne Craig, Joy En-
rich, Sylvia Green, Dewey Hatcher, Jodi Shipman's
Dad, the un-spoken and Dear LORD all our loved ones
that are in the path of these hurricanes. By faith we
call out all the names mentioned in church, to you
LORD! Jeremiah 33:3 says; Call to ME, and I will an-
swer you, and show you great and mighty things,
which you do not know! Many prayers, hugs, bless-
ings and smiles Sandy Coleman

The Cool
Down Lap:
Testing 1,2...
Testing 1,2
by Alan-Ross
Clint Bowyer punched his
ticket while David Ragan
and Kasey Kahne got, well,
chased, as the final stand-
ings for the Sprint Cup
postseason got osted after
the checkered flag fell at
Richmond. As Jimmie
Johnson grabbed his sec-
ond victory in a row and as
Tony Stewart threw yet an-
other barb at his crew, I felt
it might be timely to revisit
a topic that has been the
most troubling subject this
year for NASCAR: the em-
barrassing tire fiasco at the
Brickyard that wound up
inflicting apair of black
eyes not only on the sport's
vaunted tire manufacturer
but stock car racing's pre-
mier organization itself.
As we have learned in the
aftermath of the Brickyard
400, which contained an un-
precedented six competi-
tion cautions, the problem
wasn't just the exclusive
fault of Goodyear engi-
neers. NASCAR had its
paws in there as well, since
we now know that the erst-
while Car of
Tomorrow/Car of Today is
equally at fault with its de-
sign that chews up right
-side tires like a paper
shredder.
The problem lies with the
issue of testing. It's diffi-
cult to believe the paltry
testing setup NASCAR has
in place for its participat-
ing teams. Current just
six annual tests at Sprint
Cup tracks are available to
Cup teams-at Daytona,.
Las Vegas, California,
Pocono, and Charlotte
(twice) during the entire
2008 season. You will note
there was no testing con-
ducted at Indianapolis,
where all the tire flack oc-
curred. More atrocious is
the fact that often when
teams test they don't even
use Goodyear tires,
NASCAR's official tire!
While Cup crew chiefs mull
over options recently pro-
posed by NASCAR, ranging
from more testing at Sprint
Cup tracks (most testing is
conducted at tracks simu-
lating the Cup circuits) to
no-limits testing I'm won-
dering why Goodyear isn't
out at the Brickyard every
week, in light of the fools
they were made out to be at
the 2008 Brickyard 400,
which relegated the crown
jewel race to a series of 12-
lap heats.
If there is that much dis-.
parity between the chassis
design of the Car of Today
and Goodyear's pitiful at-
tempt to place a competi-
tive tire on the famed two-
and-a-half mile track, I say
they should bivouac at Indy
until they fix it! To date,
Goodyear has only two test
sessions (in September and
again in early October)
scheduled at the Brickyard
for this calendar year.
That's a preposterous lack
of commitment to the race
teams in specific and to the
sport in general. And if I
was on NASCAR's side, I'd
be feverishly working not
only with my own chassis
designers but with.
Goodyear's engineers to
come up with a tire that
won't unravel come next
July at Indy.
Accountability means
everything,.when you think
about it. NASCAR's fixa-
tion with creating an equal
playing field for aNl its
teams is admirable up to a
point. When logical steps to
correct a glaring problem
aren't undertaken with
complete dedication, espe-
cially after a debacle like
this past Brickyard 400, ac-
countability is in order.
Come on NASCAR-and
Goodyear-make this thing
happen. It's eating away at
the crux of your sport.
