Oh My! Bears win 61-52


f y John Kelley
he Bears broke their
losing streak in a
spectacular game against
the Williston Red Devils
Friday night at Boyette
SStadium in Cross City
The Red Devils were
looking to burn the
Bears at home to avenge
a loss last year at Willis-
ton, but instead found
them selves facing a
much more focused and
intent Bear team that
wasn't going to be
bowled over. Friday
night's game became a
real slugfest of team
strength and ability as
both teams ran up an im-
pressive score with the
Bears winning 61 to the
Devils 52. This has to
have been one of the
highest scoring games
played atDixie County in
recent memory


The Bears started Friday
night's game by taking

Rough time Thurs-
Sday night with the

posted another loss as
the Devils won, 44 to 22.
The Devils took control
of the game early on
scoring once in the first
quarter. In the second

Bears scored on a five
yard run to tie the score.

kicked to the Devils and
stopped them after four

Devils. The Bears score
again on a pass to Albach
with Schlusemyer on the
conversion to lead 16-8.
The Devils with 56 sec-
onds left in the quarter,
tie the score into half
time. At the start of the
second half the Devils
take control of the game
as the Dixie offense
stumbles. The Devils
take advantage of two
turn-overs to score back
to back touch downs,
making the score 30 to


plays. Keene using Scott
and West moved the ball
to around the Devil forty
yard line. West on a hand
off from Keene busted his
way into the end zone for
six.

their lead 44-16. During
the fourth quarter the
Bears recover two Willis-
ton fumbles but cannot
catch the Devils. The
Bears never gave up even
scoring once more on a
Roberts keeper in the
last 47 seconds of the
game. The Bears travel
this week to face the In-
dians at Fort White. GO

front right side of his ve-
hicle.

The passengers in Mr.
Whitfield's vehicle were a
bit shaken, but otherwise
unharmed. Ms. Jackson
was transported to North
Florida Regional Hospital


for treatment of a poten-
tially broken arm.

A witness at the scene,
Mr. Jason Perdue, told of-
ficers that he has seen
Ms. Jackson's car pull out
in front of Mr. Whitfield,
causing the accident.


On.Friday, September
26, 2008 at 1:35 P.M. an
'89 Chevy van driven
by Robert Pierson of
Mariana, FL over-
turned on highway 19,
just South of the Jena
turnoff. According to
the Florida Highway
Patrol Mr. Pierson's
van left the road on the
right shoulder. It appears
that he overcorrected to
the left, causing his vehi-
cle to veer across both
northbound lanes. Mr.
Pierson then attempted
to regain control of his
van, but caused it to spin
in a clockwise fashion
and overturn.

The van rolled two and a
half times, causing the
vehicle's roof to come off


and ejecting Mr. Pierson
through the top of the
van. The van came to rest
facing East, Mr. Pierson
was found laying face-up
a few feet away

Highway 19 was blocked
for about 30 minutes
while AirMedic One
landed and Mr. Pierson
was prepared to be air-
lifted. He was flown to
Shands to be treated for
serious injuries.

On Thursday, September
25, 2008 a dog named
Buck was laying at the
end of his owners' drive-
way on Suwannee Av-
enue in Old Town. Some,
time between 1:30 and
2:00 in the afternoon a ve-
hicle pulled up and shot
Buck with a .243 caliber
rifle at point blank range.
The round "blew a large
portion of the poor crit-
ter's chest clean off. "

Now, it might be under-
standable had Buck been
out running the neigh-
borhood creating mis-


chief, or threatening peo-
ple. In this case the dog
was minding his own
business. Furthermore,
Buck was well-known in
his neighborhood and
well-liked as well. Ac-
cording to his owners he
had never even threat-
ened to bite anyone. Or,
as Ms. Anderson put it
"He wouldn't bite a bis-

Buck is like a child.

How to bail out the economy

Redneck economics being one, of my specialties, I was hav-
ing some difficulty in applying the concept to the current
economic problems we are experiencing here in the good ol'
USA. And then, a friend of mine sent me an item by an indi-
vidual who must be the greatest Redneck economist since
Jesse James.

This frontier financier goes by the name of T. J. Birken-
meier, and he calls himself, "A creative guy,and citizen of
the Republic," A modest title, indeed, for one with such phe-
nomenal insight into the economic uncertainty that con-
cerns us all.

As most of us know by now, the federal government is plan-
ning to invest(?) billions of taxpayer dollars to rescue some
of the major financial institutions whose failure, it would
appear, could cause an economic collapse of the sort not
seen sirice 1929. The only issue in Washington at this point is
who gets rescued and who gets hung out to dry% other than
the individual taxpayer, who is not even being mentioned
among those who might possibly be spared the agony of de-
feat.

T. J. Birkenmeier to the rescue. He says leave the big finan-
cial institutions to lick their wounds and give the money to
the people. And here's how this would work:
T. J. figures our total population to be about 3SQmillion, of
which approximately 200 million are legal (18 & older)
adults.

Working with a figure of $85 billion (with a B) for the pro-
ject, we would allocate $425,000 to each recipient. As one
might expect, this stipend would not be tax-free, and the IRS
would recoup

$127,500, assuming a tax rate of 30 percent, still leaving each
citizen with a hefty windfall of $297,500. This, in turn, would
leave the government with a $25.5 billion return on their in-
vestment in the American people.

Well, actually that would leave the government out $59.5 bil-
lion, but in terms of the return government usually gets on
their investments, it really ain't all that bad.

So, now you've got 200 million people, each of whom has
nearly 300 grand to spend. And you think that wouldn't get
the economy back on its feet?

Intriguing as T. J.'s idea is, it does present certain problems.
For example, the qualifying age of 18. Let us suppose the pol-
icy were to take effect on March first of next year. Now, let's
suppose that you (and several thousand other people) were
born on March 2, 1991. You would have missed the gravy
train by one day Consider also how many millions of other
teen-agers were born a few days or even a few years too late.
If you think we have unruly teen-agers in our midst today,
imagine what would happen given that scenario.

Of course, the benefit could probably be pro-rated back to
the day you were born. And after all, $85 billion, is a drop in
the bucket compared to the figures that are being tossed
around in Washington these days, so the entire benefit could
be quadrupled and still leave the politicians a few billion
with which to amuse themselves while the rest of us are en-
joying the cash flow back in our direction for a change.
"Birk," as our philosopher/friend calls himself, did specify
that recipients of this unique largesse be U.S. citizens, so I
am assuming the illegals wouldn't be getting a piece of the
action. So, of course they'd protest, but so what? They're al-
ways protesting as it is, so nothing much would change.

Who knows? It actually might work. In any event, it would
stand a better chance of putting some long green back in the
pockets of the people who earned it than anything the Wash-
ington politicians are likely to come up with.


Pretty is as pretty does.


Sby Kathy McKinney


Sure, sure, I kndw the financial industry is sinking
and dragging us all down with it like DeCaprio in that
horrid Titanic movie, but who can be depressed with
weather as beautiful as we've been having lately?
This is my favorite time of year; I love it when there is
a little chill in the evening, it's OK to turn off the A/C
and open the windows wide to the distant smell of a
neighbor burning leaves...with the promise of Octo-
ber, L.L. Bean catalogs and Halloween candy corns in
the air. Life doesn't get any better than this. Simply
yummy

I did, however, drag myself out of the hammock to
watch the Presidential debates Friday night, and all of
the endless analysis on all the news channels about
who won, or didn't win, and who was relaxed, and
who stuttered, who had on the prettiest tie, etc. that
has been a constant drone on news television since
then. The main thing I took away from all of it was a
simple question: "What's wrong with you people?"

It sounded much more like an episode of "What Not
To Wear" than in-depth political analysis of the facts.
A female "expert" journalist on one panel I watched
said that since Obama hadn't done anything obviously
stupid, that he won the debate, be-
cause he was the tallest and the "What a strange
most well-spoken. The tallest? W*
...excuse me? Another one went on suppo:
to say that McCain looked "old and goodness! A b
tired," like that was something im-
portant. Since when did style be- utters absur
come more important than sub-
stance in how we select the man
who is going to be the next leader the
of the democratic world? When
did it become more important how
smoothly someone says something
than what he says? Are we, as a Leo Nik
nation, truly that shallow? If Oba-
ma wins, will it be because he's
tall, slim and good looking, or be-
cause McCain is short, balding and battle-scarred? Do
we place having symmetrical facial features and a
Bowflex body above true character and grit? If it is,
then we, the American people, surely deserve whatev-
er socialistic nightmare of a welfare society that we
get.

The debate wasn't easy to watch. Both candidates
kept repeating themselves. Both took turns mindless-
ly hammering at the "talking points" they had oh-so-
obviously been trained to repeat at every opportunity.
It can't be just me that found this behavior both in-
sulting and annoying. Apparently the people who run
campaigns think that the American voter is so stupid
that you must beat them over the head with a bat in
order to drive your message home. Maybe they figure
that most voters are too lazy to actually watch the de-
bates, so they must try to get at least some part of
their message to fit into a 10 second CNN sound byte.

Whatever their reasoning, it was obvious that Obama
at least was erring on the side of promising "bread
and circuses" to the voter in exchange for votes. It's a
time-honored political ploy, to be sure, but you would
think in this age of information-at-your-fingertips
technology, that no voter worth his hanging chad
would fall for it. Any time I hear a politician (no mat-
ter what party he works for) going on and on about
the "needs of the American family," I put on my men-
tal hip-waders, because I know the manure is about to
start piling up.

Quoth Obama: "And there are folks out there who've
been struggling before this crisis took place. And
that's why it's so important, as we solve this short-
term problem, that we look at some of the underlying
issues that have led to wages and incomes for ordi-
nary Americans to go down, the -- a health care sys-
tem that is broken, energy policies that are not work-
ing, because, you know, 10 days ago, John said that the
fundamentals of the economy are sound."

OK, can somebody send me a kid who made a C+ or
better in Logic 101? Anybody? (And maybe an expert
in manners, because I found it extremely rude that
Obama kept calling McCain "John" while McCain
called him "Senator Obama.) Because just looking at
this one quote, you can't help but wonder how the me-
dia isn't jumping on rambling and unintelligible state-
ments like these. Since I guess I'm the media in this
case, I'll give it a go. I covered health last week, so I'll
skip that one. The things that have caused American
wages to drop are a) unchecked illegal immigration b)
companies outsourcing jobs overseas because labor
unions make it too expensive to make products state-
side, and c) environmental, employment and tax regu-
lations in the US that make it more expensive to run a
business here, and d) the pathetic state of the Ameri-
can education system. It doesn't take a rocket scien-


e illusion it is to
se that beauty is
beautiful woman
cities: we listen.


tist to realize that all of these things,
with the exception of the Bush ad-
ministration's depressing record on
immigration reform, arethe fruit of
years and years of liberal, democrat-
ic whining.


Where do paychecks come from?
and we hear not Businesses, of course. What's a busi-
absurdities but ness? An entity that makes a product
or service and then sells it in order to
wise thoughts." make a profit. Very good, boys and
girls. Those were easy ones. So tell
olaevich Tolstoy me, why, when you call tech support
at Dell, does "Bob" in India pick up
the phone? Because it's cheaper to
hire Bob, with his Master's Degree in
Engineering in Bhopal, than it is to hire a kid who
squeaked through State U in seven years with a BA in
Medieval French Art in Kansas City, that's why. Bob
is better trained, has better math and science skills
because his non-unionized teachers had serious de-
grees in actual academic subjects instead of "fluff"
degrees from "Schools of Education," and Bob doesn't
Demand a two hour lunch break because his Union
says so.

If you're running a business, you want to make your
widgets as cheaply as you can, in the most business-
friendly environment that you can. Due to years of
democratic "reform," the US is not the manufacturing
powerhouse that it could (and should) be, and the
workers here are suffering for it. As for energy policy,
who is it that has fought offshore drilling, new nu-
clear plants, new oil refineries and clean coal? Who
demanded that Fannie & Freddie make home loans to
questionable risks in the name of "hbmeownership"
and "diversity?" Oh, yes, that would be the democrats
and theirliberal environmental wacko buddies. In
short, Mr. Obama, what is driving down the wages of
the American worker and what helped put us in this
energy mess is good-looking, smooth-talking, Harvard
Law School educated guys like you, who "care' so
much for the American family that you're starving us
to death.

PS. To Mr County Motor Grader Guy who was work-
ing on the road behind Poor Boy's old store--thank you!
It was above & beyond, and I appreciate it!!--ed

FHP's Corporal Richard
Nardiello arrests
a suspect with a
loaded AR-15.
When Corporal Richard
Nardiello saw the driver
of a 2008 BMW M6 ille-
gally parked in a handi-
capped space, he asked
him for identification.
The subject produced an
expired concealed
weapons permit to use
as I.D. Trooper Nardiello
then asked if he had any
weapons in the vehicle.
The subject responded
that he had a gun next to
him on the seat of the
car. Corporal Nardiello
saw a fully loaded 9MM
next to the subject in an
open holster between the
seat and the driver, and
asked if he had any oth-
er weapons. The subject
said "No." Corporal
Nardiello conducted a
driver license check that
revealed 20 suspensions
since January 2008.
The suspect was imme-
diately placed under ar-
rest and the vehicle
searched. When the
right front passenger
seat was moved forward,
a fully loaded AR-15 with
a laser mounted on the
front of the weapon was
found. A small amount
of cannibas residue was
also found on the floor-
board and rear bup hold-
er attached to the center
console.
The suspect was
charged with two counts
of Carrying a Concealed
Firearm Drivin while
License Suspended, Pos-
session of Drug Para-
phernalia, and Improper
Parking in a Handi-
capped Space.

MIAMI A French citizen was sentenced
here today to 62 months in prison fol-
lowed by three years of supervised re-
lease, $200 special assessment, and an or
der of restitution for conspiring to
transport four stolen paintings and visa
fraud-after joint investigation by U.S. Im
migration and Customs'Enforcement
(ICE), Federal Bureau of Investigation
FBI), French National Police and the
Spanish National Police
The conspiracy charge of Bernard Jean
Ternus stemmed from the August 5, 2007
armed robbery at the Musee des Beaux-
Arts, also known as the Museum of Fine
Arts, located in Nice, France. The armed
robbers stole the following four original
paintings: "Cliffs Near Dieppe," by
Claude Monet- "The Lane of Poplars at
Moret," by Alfred Sisley; "Allegory of
Water" and "Allegory of Earth," both by
Jan Breughel the Elder.
Ternus previously admitted in open
court during a plea hearing that from
August 2007 through June 2008, he and
his co-conspirators worked to sell the
stolen paintings to undercover agents of
the Federal Bureau of Investigation and
an undercover officer of the French Na-
tional Police.
According to documents filed in court,
Ternus had several meetings in the fall
of 2007 with undercover FBI agents dur-
ingwhich he negotiated the sale of the
stolen paintings. During these meetings,
Ternus told undercover FBI agents that
his associates stole the paintings and
that he needed to find abuyer for the
paintings which were then located in
southern France. On January 5, 2008
Ternus arranged with undercover FBI
agents to meet in Barcelona, Spain with
the people in France who were holding
the stolen paintings.
On January 19, 2008 Ternus met in
Barcelona, Spain with undercover FBI
agents and an unindicted co-conspirator
who had traveled from France to
Barcelona for this meeting. There, Ter-
nus and his unindicted co-conspirator
negotiated a two-part transaction with
the undercover FBI'agents. They would
sell all four stolen paintings to the un-
dercover agents for a total of 3 million
(Euros). Two of the paintings would be
transferred in exchange for 1.5 million
(Euros), and the remaining two paint-
igs would be transferred on a separate
date for 61.5 million (Euros). The defen-
dant and his unindicted co-conspirator

ment in the event anyone was arrested
upon the sale of the first two paintings.
If this occurred, they intended to use the
remaining two paintings to bargain for
-the release of anyone who was arrested.
After the January 19 meeting in
- Barcelona, Ternus returnedto South
Florida and had several more meetings
with undercover FBI agents to discuss
the terms, structure, and logistics of the
transactions. Then, on April 16, 2008, two
of Ternus' unindicted co-conspirators
arrived from France via Madrid, Spain.
Two days later, on April 18, during two-
hour meeting with undercover FBI
Agents aboard a boat docked in Broward
County, Ternus and the two unindicted
co-conspirators reviewed the details of
their sale of the stolen paintings to the
undercover agents. One of Ternus' unin-
dicted co-conspirators said he hid the
Monet and the Sisley paintings separate-
ly from the two Brueghel paintings, and
suggested that they couldthreaten to
tear up the Monet and the Sisley if po-
lice surrounded them after the first
transfer. Following a second meeting on
April 20 2008, involving Ternus, the two
unindicted co-conspirators, and under-
cover FBI agents, the two unindicted co-
conspirators returned to France. Shortly
thereafter, one of Ternus' unindicted co-
conispirators arranged to have the trans-
fer of the stolen paintings and the trans-
fer of the purchase money occur in
southern France.
On May 16, 2008, one of Ternus' unin-
dicted co-conspirators met in Carry le
Rouet, France with an undercover offi-
cer from the French National Police who
was believed to be a representative of
the undercover FBI agents. He showed
the stolen Sisley painting and one of the
stolen Brueghel paintings, "Allegory of
Water," to the undercover officer. The un-
dercover French National Police officer
agreed to purchase the stolen paintings
on behalf of the undercover FBI agents.
On June 4, 2008, when the final transac-
tion was to occur, the French National
Police arrested Ternus' co-conspirators
in southern France, FBI and ICE agents
arrested Ternus in Cooper City, FL and
the French National Police located and
Recovered all four stolen paintings from
inside a van in Marseilles, France.
In addition to the conspiracy charge re-
lating to the stolen artworks, Ternus
also previously pled guilty to a visa
fraud charge before U.S. district Court
Judge Cecilia A. Altonaga in Miami, FL..
Durmg the plea, Ternus admitted that
he fraudulently concealed his French

From BEARS, page 1 point attempt is blocked
and they settle for six


Cassidy goes to work
again and the Bears lead
at the three minute
marklo-0. Godbolt and'
Harris put tremendous
pressure on the Williston
Quarterback and the
Bears have the ball back
in four plays. With just
under two minutes, Scott
breaks out to mid-field
and sets the stage for
Keene to hold the ball and
sneak it downfield for the
touch down. Cassidy
makes the easy kick and
Bears increase their lead
to 17 unanswered points.
The first period is down
to less than one minute
when the Devils catch
wind and score them-
selves to bring the Bears
back.to reality The extra


points at the end of the
first quarter.

Dixie County has the mo-
mentum built from the
first quarter and at 11:49
in the second Rod Scott
rings the bell and scores
for his first six of the
night. The Zack attack is
unleashed for one more
point and the Bears are
leading 23-6. The Bears
kick off to Williston and
on the second play Wilker-
son of the Bears, recovers
a fumble. Keene gives the
ball to Scott who just
dances into the end zone
for six more Bear points.
Cassidy receives his first
failure of the night when
his point after attempt is
blocked but the


Should'l she be woikil(J?


Bears are leading by a
comfortable margin of 30
to 6. The kick off to the
Devils is caught and with-
in seconds the Devils
score, closing the gap by
seven to make it 30 to 14.
Five plays later the Bears
add to their side of the
score board, 37 to 14.The
clock wound down to the
last two minutes of the
first half. The Bears are
covering the Devil receiv-
.er and tip the ball away
right into the hands of an-
other Devil player who
scores. The Devils, closing
the gap again on the
Bears, are closer 37 to 22.
The Bears receive the
kick off, six plays later
Keen on a keeper gets the
first down in Williston
territory Scott moves the
ball to within 30 yard line
with less than
four seconds
left in the
half. Fresh-
men Kicker
Zack Cassidy
easily boots
in a field goal
from 38 yards
and the half
S ends with
Dixie in firm
control of the
game 40 to 22.

The Devils
come out in
the third
quarter and


in five plays score a touch
.down. The conversion is
blocked and the score is
40-28. At the start of the
forth quarter The Devils
close the gap with 36
Points to the Bears 40.
This is where the game
boils doWn to the last ten
minutes of play Keen us-
ing Scott and West man-
age to get within scoring
distance. Keen gives the
ball to Scott who scores,
Cassidy hits it again, and
the Bears pull ahead by
seven more, 47-36. On the
kick off the Devil receiver
turned on the speed and
runs the ball back for a
TD, narrowing the score
to within three painfully
close points. Keen and
company step up to the
task and at the six minute
mark Scott gets another
touch down. Once more
Cassidy hits the uprights
and the Bears pull away
53 to 44. The Devils re-
ceive the ball and deter-
mined to close down the
Bears, score in five plays,
this time they add seven
to their side, closing to
within two points of the
Bears. This places Dixie
County in a tough spot,


four minutes left ei-
ther to score or con-
trol the ball to the
end of the game.
Dixie holds the ball
for nine long plays,
helped along by four
penalties, they final-
ly give the ball back
to Williston. The
Bears defense ab-
solutely stops the
Williston drive and
the Dixie offense
take the ball with
two minutes to play.
On the first down Keen
gives the ball to Scott for
the touch down and as
you might have guessed,
Cassidy shoots from the
hip to boost the Bears to
61-52. The Bears con-
trolled the game from
here on out to best the
Devils one more year. The
final score 61 to 52.

Coach Wilkerson com-
mented that Williston was
a good team, fast as any-
one they had.played this
year. He said "We played
hard and I'm proud that
we hung in there. Our de-
fense play good and over-
all we are getting better.
We played better, tackled


harder and Keen played
real good. I can't remem-
ber such a high scoring
game." In the post game
stats, Scott posted 332
yards in 31 carries West
had 12 carries for 107
yards and Keen had 72
yards passing.

Next week the Bears face
the Jefferson County Pan-
thers in Monticello. The
Panthers will be looking
to win their first game of
the year in front of the
home crowd. Let's disap-
point them Dixie County
style. GO BEARS!


Oops! They
Did It Again...

Rangers Beat
Bradford

28-20

The Ranger's are
now 4-0 as they continue on
their journey to SMAC. It
was 4 tough 1st quarter for
the Ranger's. Penalties were
called and they had to punt.
They didn't regain posses-
sion of the ball until the 2nd
quarter.
Then it opened up.
Hunter Robson came in for
a sack. Daniel Thomas got
behind the line for two
sacks. After a hard battle
during the 2nd quarter,
Bradford slipped in for a
touchdown and their 2-point
conversion was good. They
had us 8-0 just seconds be-
fore half time.
After half time, it
was on. The Ranger's came
back strong and willing to
take over the game. Javonta
Jones had an explosive run
for a 55-yard touchdown and
Heath Montgomery in for 2
points. Dakota Hunt opened
up the defense with a quar-
terback sack.

P- .j6~ir


Bradford didn't give
up...they scored on a kick-
off return but their extra
point was no good.
Well they didn't
have anything on
us...Javonta Jones ran for a
60-yard touchdown and
again Montgomery in for 2
points. Now at the end of
the 3rd quarter the Ranger's
were up by 2 points.
Just when you
thought the Ranger's would
not score again, they put a
hurtin on Bradford. Jones
ran for a 50-yard touch-
down, our extra point try
was not good. Then Jones
scored our final touchdown
with a 45-yard run and un-
fortunately, no extra point.
Bradford went in
for their final score with
about 3 minutes left in the
game and the Ranger's
fought hard to hold them for
the win. As you can see,
Bradford is the only team
that has given the Ranger's
a run for their money. Join
us next Tuesday night in
Chiefland, Oct. 7. at 7 p.m...
GO RANGER'S
The Rangers played Oak
Hall this past Tuesday
night. See next weeks story

Florida dove
hunters get
unexpected bonus
with higher bag
limit

When Florida's first phase of
the mourning dove season
opens Saturday, Oct. 4,
hunters will find an unex-
pected bonus -- an increase in
the bag limit from 12 to 15
birds.
The daily bag limit is a com-
bined bag limit and applies
to both mourning' doves and
white-winged doves.
Prior to the 2008 hunting sea-
son, states had the option of
going with a higher bag limit
but fewer days of hunting.
This year the U.S. Fish and


Wildlife Service said states
could increase bag limits
without giving up hunting
days.
Florida's three-phase dove
season runs 72 days. This
year it's Oct.. 4-27; Nov. 15-30;
and Dec. 13- Jan. 11, 2009.
Hunting during the first
phase is legal from noon to
sunset. Hunting is allowed
during the latter two phases
from 30 minutes before sun-
rise to sunset.

The 2008-2009 migratory bird
regulations for aove, snipe,
woodcock, rail, moorhen,
crow and early waterfowl
seasons may be obtained by
contacting the FWC's region-
al offices, or may be viewed

usual, it will be election

Governing
Board

Approves FY
2008-09
Budget,
Work Plan

LIVE OAK, FL, Septem-
ber 25, 2008 The Suwan-
nee River Water Manage-
ment District governing
board adopted its FY
2008-09 Budget and Work
Plan at its meeting Tues-
day in Live Oak.

The approved budget
calls for a millage rate of
0.4399 mills, or about 44
cents per $1,000 of as-
sessed property value.
This rate remains un-
.changed from FY 2007-08.
There are no new staff
positions; therefore the
District's staffing level
will remain at 68 for the
18th consecutive year.

The total approved FY.
2008-09 budget is $69.8
million, reflecting a de-
crease of more than $12
million or a 15 percent
decrease from FY 2007-08
budget of $81.9 million.

This year's budget high-
lights several programs
of interest to the District
including:

Implementation of
The Ichetucknee Partner-
ship (TIP) involving lo-
cal, voluntary and incen-
tive based initiatives to


support wise springshed
management within the
Ichetucknee Springshed.

Update and automa-
tion of digital Flood In-
surance Rate Maps
through funding provid-
ed by the Federal Emer-
gency Management Ad-
ministration (FEMA).

Continuation of the
land acquisition and
management program
which includes funds for
the Suwannee River
Wilderness Trail, R.O.
Ranch equestrian center
and restoration projects.

Continued develop-
ment of potable water,
stormwater and waste-
water systems through
the Quality Communities
program for 34 communi-
ties in the District.

Continued support
for the Suwannee River
Partnership cost-share
program to aid farmers
in protecting springs and
other water resources
through reducing nutri-
ent loads and improving
water conservation.

Work will continue to es-
tablish minimum flows
and levels (MFLs) for
rivers and springs, as
will data collection for
the District's rainfall,
groundwater and surface
water monitoring net-
works.

Support Our


Local Students


Kathyn McInnis, President of the Dixie Education
Foundation. Inc. and treasurer, Carol West, attended
the Consortimn of Florida Education Foundations
meeting in Orlando on September 26th. Membership
in the Consortium provides the opportunity for our
local Foundation to apply for matching grants of pri-
vate monies raised for special projects. Last year
members raised $12,500.00 which was matched 100%.
A total of $25,000 was presented to the Dixie District
School Board to be used towards the Kaplan progress-
monitoring program.

As with many funding requests, the budget for the
Foundation Matching Grant Program was cut from
$4m to $1.8m. However, your Dixie Education Foun-
dation has applied for $10,000 which MUST BE
MATCHED WITH PRIVATE FUNDS. So when you
are contacted by a Foundation members requesting
support for this program, remember your contribu-
tion is matched with State funding 100%. Funds are
expected in early Spring, so all monies must be raised
quickly

Make plans to attend the November 10th annual meet-
ing of the Dixie Education Foundation to find out
more.


CORRECTION AND MEA CULPA: In last week's city
council story,, remarks were attributed to Ms. Buggs
that were made by another party. We regret the error.

BRONSON
ANNOUNCES NEW
RULE REGULATING
IDENTIFICATION AND
MOVEMENT OF SHEEP
AND GOATS

TALLAHASSEE -- Flori-
da Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bron-
son today announced the
upcoming implementa-
tion of a new rule regu-
lating the identification
and intrastate movement
of sheep and goats. The
rule, effective October 10,
is designed to prevent the
spread of scrapie, a fatal,
degenerative disease of
the nervous system in
these animals.

The rule requires that all
sheep and goats moved
intrastate for any reason,
or when there is a change
of ownership, must be
identified by their


flock/herd of birth, or if
that information is un-
known, by the flock/herd
from which they originat-
ed. Only identification
methods approved by
the United States De-
partment of Agricul-
ture (USDA) can be
used. These include offi-
cial USDA ear tags, iden-
tification tattoos, or im-
planted electronic mi-
crochips.

The new rule is being
done in conjunction with
the USDA's Scrapie Erad-
ication Program, which
provides standards for
state and federal govern-
ments and the industry to
monitor, control and
eradicate the disease
from domestic flocks and
herds in the United
States. The USDA regu-
lates interstate movement
of sheep and goats but
the state rule was neces-


sary to ensure the same
standards are followed
for animals moved within
the state's'borders.

"It is imperative that the
federal government and
all the states work togeth-
er on this eradication
program," Bronson said.
"In today's marketplace,
animals are often moved
to many locations. It's im-
portant to be able to
quickly determine where
they are from if they are
diagnosed with scrapie."

Code Rule 5C-29, the
scrapie rule, contact the

Animal Industry at (850)

NEW PROSPECT.

BAPTIST NEWS

It was a blessing to be back in church
Sunday. It was also good to have Bro. Billy
back with us who, with leadership from on
High, delivered a very fine message from
Luke 18:9-14. Our choir and musicians also
did a very good job in setting the tone for
the worship of our Heavenly Father, and we
very much appreciate all the beautiful'
singing and playing.

As October opens up, we look forward to a
new church year and more opportunities for
serving our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

On Sunday, Oct. 5th, there will be a LIFE
CHAIN at Cross City First Baptist Church

What a pleasure it is to have visitors with
us...as always, we extend a standing invita-
tion to all! We urge you to be diligent in
your prayers for our country, our President
and other leaders, 'all our military person-
nel, and all those on the church prayer lists
here at home. Have a good week, and may
God bless and keep you safe.


"I have not placed
reading before praying
because I regard it
more important, but
because, in order to
pray aright, we must
understand what we
are praying for."

-Angelina Grimke


Old Town United Methodist

The Old Town United Methodist Church Choir will
present the cantata, "God Bless the USA" at two per-
formances on Sunday, November 9. The first perfor-
mance will be at 9:30 AM as a part of the Sunday
morning church service. The second performance
will be at 4:00 PM. "God Bless the USA" is a patriotic

the USA," "America the Beautiful," and "You're a
Grand Old Flag," as well as some new ones that will
surely become favorites too. The public is invited as
the choir offers this time of honor to our Veterans.

medals. Please join us on November 9th as we honor
our Veterans.

On October 10, 1926, a group of local citizens came to-
gether in worship, on what became Kenneth Street,
(Now 271 Street) and organized the Cross City Church
of God. The church has continued in this same loca-
tion until the present, sharing the love and message
of Jesus Christ to the Dixie County Community.

Sunday, October 12, 2008, the congregation of the
church extends an invitation to everyone to join us
for a time of celebration and praise as we commemo-
rate 82 years of faithful ministry to our community
The service will feature a special message by Florida
SAdministrative Bishop, Dr. J. Martin Taylor, along
with annointed gospel singing followed by a fellow-
ship dinner that is second to none. The service be-
gins at 10:30 am.

Pastor Ed Ivey urges everyone to join with us for this
special day.

Prayer


You who solve 'all problems, who
lights all roads so that I can
obtain my goals. You who give
me the Divine gift to forgive and
to forget all evil against me and
that in all instances of my life,
You are with me. I want in this
short prayer to thank You for all
things and to confirm that I
never want to be separated from
You, even and in spite of all
material illusions. I wish to be
with You in eternal glory
Thank You for Your mercy
toward me and mine.
The person must say this prayer
for three consecutive days.
After three days the favor
requested will be granted even
though it may appear difficult.
This prayer must be published
immediately after the favor is
granted without mentioning the
favor, only your initials should
appear at the bottom.

Continued from Front Page...young men in a dark
blue pickup truck. iIf they'd shoot a poor, little dog like
that, just imagine what else they'd do.i Says Ms. Ander-
son. While sometimes a dog must be put down, in this
case it was an act of senseless violence. Wanton acts of
cruelty are something that this county can do without
any more of. To you that have committed this act, and
you know who you are, shame on you,
