/T"he Bears lost a
"t hard, tough game
to the Indians last
Friday night. When the
dust finally settled, the
Bears were on the bot-
tom 44 to 27. The Bears
started the first quarter
with Scott fumbling on
the first play. The defense
recovered and held Fort
White to four plays. The
Indians moving the ball
score first at six minutes
into the quarter. On the
kickoff return Rodney
Scott smokes the Indians
in an 89 yard foot race
for the touch down. The
Indians score once more
and then again on anoth-
er Scott fumble. Scott and
the Bears come back in
the second quarter to
score on a four yard dash
into the end zone. Cas-
sidy adds the extra point
and the Bears close the
gap 20 to 13. The Indians
score once more in the
second period. With less

than two minutes in the
half, Cassidy is called up
for a 33 yard field goal at-
tempt. Cassidy uncharac-
teristically misses and
the half ends with Bears
still trailing the Indians.

The second half starts
with the Indians scoring
on their first possession.
Seven plays later Scott


answers with a touch
down and conversion.
The score is 34 to 21. The
second half of the game
also was played under a
multitude of yellow flags
as tempers flared and
frustrated coaches tried
changing strategies as
the teams received at

JV Bears Run the Taylor Dogs


by John elley
he Dixie County
JV Bears took on
S the Taylor Bull-
dogs in Perry and
although they didn't win,
they gave the Bulldogs a
run for the money The
Bears started out slow
and failed to score in the
first half. They let the
Dogs take the lead 12 to 0
in the first quarter but,
held the Dogs in the sec-
ond quarter with the de-
fense allowing no points.
With forty -four seconds


to half-time the Bear de-
fense knuckled down,
held the line, and forced
a fumble, which they re-
covered. The offense took
over but, couldn't get
enough traction to score
before the half.

The Bear defensive line'
stepped up starting in
the second-half to hold
Taylor to seven plays.
Then the offense took
over. To make up for the
dismal first half, Charley
Jones made a fifty yard


dash to get to ball closer
to the red zone. Building
on the momentum, Al-
bach gets the ball a little
closer, and with less than
four minutes in the
third, Erik Schlusemeyer.
darts in for the score.
The Bears now have a
shot at coming back. The
defense at this point real-
ly gets their heads in the
game and stops the Tay-
lor offense, forcing an-
other fumble recovered
by Nathan Singleton.

"On behalf of Tri-County
Hospital, LLC I want to
take this, opportunity to
again thank the residents
of Dixie County, busi-
nesses, civic organiza-
tions, city and county of-
ficials. In regard to the
Dixie County Commis-
sion, the Commission
designated Buddy Lamb
as representative for as-
sisting in successfully ob-
taining approval to build
the hospital. Mr. Lamb's
tireless efforts for Dixie
County included numer-
ous meetings in Tallahas-
see and within the local
area. Commissioner
Lamb's effort's were a de-
termining factor in re-
ceiving a CpN (Certifi-
cate of Need) needed for
construction of the Hos-

all be proud and pleased
with the Quality of Care
that will be provided",

Enough is Enough:
Predator Arrested
on (Yet) Another Battery Charge


According to the Dixie
County Sheriff's Office, a
suspect in a sexual bat- .
tery case has been arrest-
ed in Old Town. The sus-
pect Gordon Keith
Roberts is on probation
and has been classified as
a Sexual Predator.
Roberts, age 44 of Old
Town is alleged to have
committed sexual battery
on the victim at his home
located at 23953 Highway
19 in Old Town.

The Sheriff's Office be-
gan to investigate
Roberts on October 7,
2008 concerning allega-
tions of sexual battery
when a victim reported
that she had been sexual-
ly battered on multiple
occasions by Roberts.
During the investigation,
consent to search the,
house was obtained and
numerous sexually ex-


plicit ma-
terials
were
found. It
was de-
termined
through
the State
of Flori-
da, Department of Cor-
rections, Probation and
Parole that Roberts was
not to be in possession of
any pornographic or sex-
ually explicit material as
a condition of his proba-
.tion.

Roberts was arrested on
October 8, 2008 for the
charge of Sexual Battery
and his Probation was vi-
olated by the Department
of Corrections shortly
thereafter. Roberts is
currently being held at
the Dixie County Jail on
no bond.


City approves new

Day Care Center


Kathy McKinney
although the
Cross City Coun-
cil meeting of
two weeks ago
was continued until the
13th due to overwhelm-
ing public outcry regard-
ing a Special Exception
Request made by Rita
Harris for the proposed
Day Care Center on CR
351 just north of the
Courthouse in a residen-
tial neighborhood, no cit-
izen input was permitted
at Monday night's meet-
ing. The meeting room
at City Hall was packed,
primarily with citizens
from Cross City's
African-American com-
munity who came to ex-
press their reservations
about the impact of the
new child care facility on
the existing Head Start
program.

The only dissenting vote
was Councilman Clay
Locklear. The motion to
approve the Special Ex-
ception was made by
Councilman Rick Good-
ing, and seconded by


Councilwoman Kay Hard-
en, with the proviso that
any improvements that
should have to be made
in the future to public in-
frastructure for public
safety reasons, including
street paving, lane addi-
tion or striping or school
crossing zones would be
at the sole expense of the
developer. Council mem-
bers Herbert Hurst and
Marcellus Dawson also
voted to approve the Spe-
cial Exception.

The Planning Council's
report that stated that
the new facility would in-
crease traffic on already
busy C.R. 351 by 37% dur-
ing peak evening times,
but that that increase
was within recognized
limits. Councilman
Locklear defended his
"no" vote, saying "I think
a traffic count needs to
be done. In the morning
you can't pull out onto
that street. I want to see
a true. count, not a projec-
tion."

2008 Dixie County Advocate


Is this guy now an expert
on the economy?


The gentleman who observed that the numbers
were goofy and the whole idea wouldn't work anyway
was absolutely right. My purpose was to illustrate that
any economid'"bailout" that Washington could come
up with would be a bad solution to a problem we
shouldn't have, so we were both right. It's just that giv-
ing the bailout money directly to the taxpayers seemed
like such a novel idea.. .not that it's ever going to hap-
pen.
Thus, I am nominating Mr. Queensbury for
recognition as an honorary Redneck Economist, and I
welcome his well thought out observations on any
comments I make in this publication, or even in the
Wall Street Journal in case I ever make it that far.
The individual .whose economic expertise I am
questioning is someone who should have an apprecia-
tion of Redneck Economics but apparently does, not,
and that is former President Jimmy Carter.
Last week, while on a stopover in Brussels, Belgium,
the world traveler told a group of European socialist
admirers that our nation's -and apparently the
world's-whole economic mess is all George Bush's,
fault. '. .,
If some enterprising liberal would take the
trouble, heicould make, a few bucks (which he could
donate to the ACLU, ACORN or some other worthy re-
cipient) by having a bunch of bumper stickers printed
up that read, "It's all George Bush's fault!" Nothing
more specific would be necessary They'd get over
great in places like San Francisco because they would
apply to the liberal position on any significant issue of
the moment.
But let's get real about James Earl Carter's ad-
ministration. He took office in January of 1977 after
losing a close election to Republican incumbent Ger-
ald Ford. Congress remained solidly in the Democrats'
control, where it had been since the early 1950's.
During Carter's single term in office, Iran got
away with overrunning our embassy in Tehran and
imprisoning more than a hundred United States citi-
zens. That in itself was an act of war, to which Carter
responded with a failed rescue attempt. And he didn't
do any better with the economy By the time he left of-
fice, the country was experiencing unprecedented in-
flation during an economic recession.
Wait a minute, isn't that what Carter is blam-
ing on Bush today? Isn't that pretty much where the
Carter administration was his last year in office? Only,
Carter had his own party in charge of Congress, while
Bush must deal with the party of Pelosi and Reid.
Don't get me wrong, I fully agree that George
W. Bush has made mistakes, and I haven't been hesi-
tant to criticize him. I just like to keep things in their
proper perspective, and to do that we need to evaluate
Carter's own perspective in dealing with our nation's
economic problems.
The fact remains that we did not have our pre-
sent economic problems two years ago, when the GOP
still had a majority in Congress, even though some
members of that astute body-such as Senator John
McCain-were warning of serious problems if some-
thing wasn't done to rein in irresponsible lending poli-
cies.
It was a matter of bipartisan neglect, but a
year ago the economy was still in great shape, and as
recently as six months ago there were only hints that
trouble might be on the horizon. About the only good
thing for working folks to come of this is that the
price of gas'has dropped a significant amount.
Of course, I'm the guy who's always wanting to
sell shares on the Suwannee River bridge. Well, now I
might even be willing to part with some Wachoyia
stock. Give me a call at BR-549.

Turning the Heel


by Kathy McKinney


I'm weird, I know I am. I've always had a tendency to
become obsessed with bizarre hobbies: for instance,
there were the years I spent, dressed up in Italian Re-
naissance or Celtic wench garb, camping in the woods
and studying medieval history with the Society for
Creative Anachronism. I got a lot out of it. I can
- brew honey mead, embroider my own coat of arms,
shoot an arrow from a longbow, weave on an inkle
loom and can make chain mail. Yep, like daddy would
say, "And then with a dollar, you can buy a cup of cof-
fee." I collect "useless" archaic skills, I guess.

So it's not so surprising that I've started knitting
socks. While it may seem silly to spend hours and
hours (not to mention $20 for wool-and-silk sock yarn)
knitting something that you can buy at Walmart in a
jumbo pack of 8 for $6.00, I think it's a good use of my
time and money Besides, I was knitting sweaters,
hats and scarves, but you may have noticed, this is
Florida...I can't remember the last time anybody I
know actually wore a scarf.

Knitting socks is complicated. It's a little like yanking
a piece of hair out of your head and then trying to
knit it into something with four toothpicks. "If it was
easy then everybody would do it..."
That old adage is true. Sometimes, "The p
things are fun to do because they
are hard. The most satisfying part acceptance, app
about knitting socks is called appreciation and
"turning the heel," where you use our human co
a little knitting magic to turn a
square of knitting into a curved not understand
and contoured heel. Its quite a feat fellowship is r<
of engineering, and there's some-
thing immensely satisfying about need for fo
doing it just right. It makes you through 1
want to stand up on the couch,
wave your arms in the air like
Rocky, and scream "AHA!! I have genuil
turned the heel! I can do it! Now I
will take over the universe and
bend it to my will! Muahaahaaa- Jos
haha!" (OK, not that I do that,
mind you, but I know this girl who does stuff like that
sometimes. Not me. It's somebody else, I tell you.)

It's also great if you have big, flappyy frog feet, "like I
do. You can customize your socks to fit your feet. My
daughter Casey has these weird'bumps on the sides of
her ginormous size 10 feet. If I could get her to actual-
ly wear socks (she lives in flip flops or high heels), she
would love the way hand-knit socks hug her feet and
fit perfectly I have narrow heels, long feet, and prefer
ankle socks. No problem. I can make 'em any way I
want. Something designed in China and programmed
into a sock-making machine just can't do that.

There's something timeless about a woman sitting, do-
ing the tasks that women have always done for their
families: shelling peas, mending clothes,.or knitting
socks. The quiet, repetitive motions are peaceful and
almost meditative. It makes me think of the summer
afternoons my sister Liz and I would spend with
mama and granny at Aunt Annie Butler's house. We


PET OWNERS BE AWARE


Do you know what happens to the many unwanted pups
and kittens,that you ,the owner .have allowed to come into
this cruel world? Just because some money has exchanged
doesn't necessary mean they are going to a loving caring
home. Many end up as shark or snake bait'or whatever man
has decided with their fate. IF you love your pet,as you
should, then take care and responsibility for it. Don't allow
it to reproduce unwanted litters to give away to the mercy
of the world. There is so much meanness out there ,IF you
don't believe it then you have your hdad stuck in the sand
Pull it out and look around...Be aware of whats happening
in your neighborhood. Whether its children, elderly or pet
abuse ..abuse is abuse IF you know of anyone or any thing
being abused ,Please, Please, report it to the proper author-
ities. Together, we can make a difference.Now, its off my
chest hopefully into yours. I can'tistress enough how impor-
tant it is to have your pets spayed or neutered.

The Dixie Humane Center offers discounted health care
and spay and neutering for cats Hopefully in the very near
future they will be able to offer the same for dogs. PLEASE
DONATE TO YOUR LOCAL HUMANE SOCIETY.

THANKS,

Quote, "The board voted un animously to renew county at-
torney Leenette McMillan's contract." This action, without
any input from the voters, that I am aware of! I know that
every member of our union would have opposed this!

Normally this would be enough for me to call for all encum-
bants to be voted out! However, I will wait to-make that call
next Thursday, if our' contract for animal control is reject-
ed.

kids would chase chickens through the hydrangeas,
pick itchy-sweet scuppernong grapes and play up un-
,der the quilt frame (except the corner where Aunt An-
nie kept her spit cup....ewww!) while the women
talked and worked on the quilt. It's peaceful, conge-
nial work that lends itself well tQ,a little gossip and
woman-talk. It seems like people just don't have time
to do stuff like that anymore. There's notime or *
space for quiet, friendly talking and working on pro-.
jects in this world we've built full of blaring televi-
sions, video games, and endless "activities."

I've noticed that since I've started knitting socks that
my daughter Georgia, in particular, is more inclined
to go get her knitting, too, and to sit with me to talk
about the stuff that nine year olds think about. I like
the thought that maybe one day when I'm gone she'll
teach her daughter or granddaughter to knit, and tell
her that "my mama taught me." That's a better sort of
immortality, I think, than any statue in a town square.

We spend too much time being "entertained" by elec-
tronic boxes these days, I think. We're losing our con-
nections to friends and family and replacing them
with television characters and video games. We're not
teaching our kids the skills that our grandparents
taught our parents and then that our parents taught
us. How many kids these days can
mary joy of life is make biscuits from scratch? How
val, the sense of any spend their time learning to
oval, the sense f embroider pillowcases or to build
ompanionship of something useful from wood? Par-
es Many men do ents are too "busy" to take the time
to do such things, these days.

fashioned gentle work and fellowship.

An editorial, by definition, is supposed. to end with
some sort of call to action. I don't really have one for
you, other than: Sit down. Unplug. Turn off the tele-
vision blaring about the economic collapse and our
world hurtling toward inevitable doom (or an Obama
presidency, as if there's any difference) and switch off
the computer. Make something. Teach your kids to
make something. Take them for a walk. Take them to
the Homecoming parade. Do something difficult and
satisfying. Go to the football game. Talk to people you
haven't seen since high school. Re-connect with your
friends and family. That is, after all, why we live in
the country, isn't it?


In response to John Bowwell, in last week's MY OPINION
Urifo-tunately, in our county and.in the country things are
bad. Financially things have not been this bad since the
30's. Most are blaming the President of the United States. I
personally blame the Democratic Senators. They have
been in complete control for the past 2 years.

I've done a little research and found out that the Great Bear,
Ind. that Mr. Bowwell wrote about, went out of business 15-
18 years ago. The person that owned it also had a plant in
Lake Butler. Both plants were closed and moved out of the
country, I think to Mexico. The Georgia Pacific did shut
down. I believe it to be because of the overall building
slump that has encompassed our nation. Restaurants and
small motels are going out of business all over the United
States, not just here in Dixie County I find it narrow mind-
ed and naive to blame a County Commissioner for every-
thing that is happening in the World.

I too have heard Buddy Lamb's campaign speech. He is
very passionate about Dixie County Doing what he can to
get things done. Sometimes that means going'to Tallahas-
see. I am glad that we'have a Commissioner that is respect-
ed and welcome in our Capitol.

Commissioner Lamb has worked hard for Dixie County. I
am from Suwannee where most of the time we are just sim-
ply forgotten. He is always available to answer phone calls,
talk to us when we have concerns, provide services when
we did not think anyone else was going to help. Buddy
Lamb is a full time Commissioner, very well qualified, hon-
est and only 1 of 2 Dixie County Commissioners that has
completed an educational course that gives him the title of
Certified County Commissioner.

I personally do not know Mr. Higginbotham, I'm sure he is
a fine person. However, what I do know is that Dixie Coun-
ty cannot have 4 or 5 new Commissioners on the Board:.
You cannot totally get rid of all the old and bring on the
new and expect it to work, as it should. Just think about it.
No one will know what is going on.Please think before you
automatically throw out the old and say "in with the new".
Vote for the right man. Vote for Buddy Lamb on November
4th.
Respectfully submitted,
Christine Parr

The Facts Concerning County'
Commissioner Buddy Lamb!
This article is written in respect to Mr. John
Bowwell's opinion he wrote in last weeks edition of the
Dixie County Advocate concerning our incumbent, Mr.
Buddy Lamb.
Mr. Bowwell, please let me take this opportunity to
inform you and all other voters of Dixie County with
the following list of many accomplishments that Buddy
Lamb initiated for this county and it's citizens during
the past years:
*He's continuously involved in making a Tri-County.
Hospital a reality in our area.
*He's fought against the reduction of our hunting and
fishing rights.
*He's fought against large scale mining of our natural
resources without local input.
*He's integrally involved in acquiring a grant and land
for the new Dixie County
Senior Center.
*He's a member of the steering committee to bring
Central Florida Community
College to the Tri-County area.
*He's involved in acquiring the new prison annex that
will provide many new jobs to Dixie County
*He's a full-time County Commissioner (his full time
and attention is devoted to improving the quality of
life for Dixie County and it's citizens).
*He's fought to keepa 250 bed migrant labor camp out
of our neighborhoods.
Mr. Bowwell, this is just a few of Buddy Lamb's
achievements. I also would like to voice my opinion on
why Mr. Lamb spends so much time in Tallahassee.
Personally, I'm glad to know that Buddy Lamb is the
kind of County Commissioner working for me and all
citizens of Dixie County in Tallahassee. He's an active
voice representing all of us while in Tallahassee and
I'm proud he's there on my behalf.
Oh, Mr. Bowwell, as far as restaurants going out of
business, restaurants are supported by local citizens, if
people do not eat at restaurants, obviously, the estab-
lishment closes it's doors. (It's called a poor economy!)
Also, concerning Georgia Pacific's closing, if you.
haven't noticed Mr. Bowwell, the housing industry is a
bust!! This means houses are not being built so lum-
ber is not needed. (I believe that's also called a weaken-
ing economy!) Mr. Bowwell, I would like to know, when
did Buddy Lamb become solely responsible for the
falling of our economy? Furthermore, I see a great
business opportunity for you, purchase Suwannee
Gables Restaurant and save that landmark for our citi-
zens.

Four DCHS Students Arrested
for Marijuana Possession

Cross City, Florida- On Monday, October 13, 2008, four
Dixie County High School Students were arrested for
possession of marijuana on DCHS Campus. An em-
ployee of the High School alerted the on-campus School
Resource Deputy to the area of the Girls' Softball Field
concerning possible illegal activity and the fact that
the students were in an unauthorized area.

When the School Resource Deputy arrived from the
Front Office, the school employee told the Deputy that
she observed the four juveniles, all white males, sitting
in the softball dugout smoking marijuana. The four ju-
veniles admitted to smoking and being in possession of
the marijuana, which was found in the dugout.

The four juveniles were arrested and transported to the
Dixie County Jail, where they were processed and re-
leased to their parents by the State of Florida, Depart-
ment of Juvenile Justice. The School Board and the
Sheriff's Office have a Zero Tolerance Policy for illegal
drugs and activity on school property.


Sheriff's Youth

Ranchers Enjoy

Day of Fishing

Cross City, Florida- For the fourth year running,
Ranchers with the Florida Sheriff's Youth Ranches
-were hosted to a day of fun on Saturday, October 11,
2008 by Sheriff Dewey Hatcher and Dr.'s Hank and Lin-
da Stoddard of Shamrock Veterinarian Clinic.

The day started early for the Ranchers as they loaded
into vans in Live Oak and traveled to Cross City, where
they were greeted by numerous volunteers who had
planned a morning of fishing for the Ranchers at the
Shamrock Veterinarian Clinic pond. While they did
not catch many fish, they enjoyed being out in nature
and having fun.

After fishing and having fun, the Ranchers were treat-
ed to a noon meal and then they departed back to Live
Oak. Sheriff Hatcher stated, "I would like to thank the
numerous volunteers who took time out of the day to
make a difference in a child's life, without their hard
work, assistance and dedication this event would not
have been possible." Sheriff Hatcher and the Sheriff's
Youth Ranch would like to extend a special.thank you
to the Stoddards for allowing the Ranchers to use their
facility.

Letter To The Editor:
Just another opinion: In response to Mr.
John Bowwell's letter.
I believe that the voters of Dixie Coun-
ty are a pretty savvy group of people.
Let me explain.
The housing industry started a severe
down turn in the last half of 2006. Geor-
gia Pacific here in Dixie County was in
the business of supplying lumber to that
industry Nothing new here that the vot-
ers of Dixie County or any other county
in Florida do not already know. Almost
any business directly or indirectly de-
pendent on the health of the housing in-
dustry is suffering. Georgia Pacific, and
about 90 of Dixie County's people em-
ployed by GP, suffered,
The Suwannee Gables Restaurant, The
Carriage House, and the Dixie Drive In
were all in the food service business.
Could any of these businesses have been
hurt by the high cost of gasoline? Are
other businesses like them now finding
it hard to survive for the very same rea-
son?
The national average for miles driven
by a two-car working family is OVER
24,000 miles per year. In the past two
years our country has seen gasoline go
from the $2.00 per gallon range to the
$4.00 range. Two cars with an average of
20 miles per gallon increases family ex-
penses by $2400 per year after taxed dol-
lars. I agree with you that Dixie County
is a poor county on a per-capita income
basis, but not the poorest. Not that that
makes it any better. This increase in
family living expenses has hurt the food
service businesses like restaurants. If
you don't agree, go to the horses mouth,
ask the the restaurant owners, they
might just have an opinion on the sub-
ject.
Great Bear Industries They have been
closed for how many years now? 10, 12...
Mr. Lamb has been in office eight years.
It seems to me that you are a computer
age type of guy and you believe in hard
work. I believe in working smart. Maybe.
that's because I'm 63 years old. County
Commissioners have to work smart, not
hard. Thay work for the hard working
people of Dixie County like the road
workers, logging and construction peo-
ple, and, maybe the hardest working
class of all, the mothers who must go to
work just to help their husbands make
ends meet and get their children
through school. These and many others


are hard working!
,Dixie citizens pay taxes to the county,
state, and federal governments. A very
large portion of the county's operational
budget comes from the state. Special
grants and, in some cases, county
monies must be added to these grants.
Grants that:build things like the new
addition to our prison (that will create
over 120 new, good jobs with pensions)
and the new EMS facility, are all or in
part, funded by the state.Ever hear the
saying "the squeaky wheel gets the
'grease"? 66 other counties in Florida all
want their share, and a little bit more, of
the tax dollars paid in. It could be Dixie
County's tax dollars that go to Dade or
Broward or some other county if we are
not well and continually represented
in Tallahassee with experience. Mr. lamb
is the squeaky wheel for Dixie County
He is already respected in Tallahassee
and that does not happen overnight.
What you are criticising, Mr. Bowwell, is
called NETWORKING, a term that found
its beginning with the computer age!
I have one final thought, and I stand to
be corrected if you see the need. I attend
every county commission meeting that I
can. I have seen you there a few times.
With such a passion for the needs of Dix-
ie Counhty why do you leave immediately
after your single and only interest in
this county is addressed? I have never
heard you address the commission with
job concerns, growth, ot the advance-
ments that the computer age might
bring to our county
Our commissioners have responsibili-
ties to provide and maintain necessary
services, get our children the best educa-
tion possible, support a safe and secure
place for Dixie citizens to live, help our
not so fortunate, and then with what is
left over bust their butts trying to find
the funds for growth and new jobs. If
you stick around throughout the meet-
ings you will see that this is what they
are doing.
Yes, I am a supporter of Buddy Lamb,
but I do not see how Mr. Higginbotham
embraces your views, or does he? .Mr.
Higginbotham, I believe has more re-
spect for the voters of Dixie County
We should not sell the voters of Dixie
County short. They will vote and they
will' decide on who is elected. Not how
you or I write.
With all due respect for your first am-
mendment rights,
Charles Fornaciari

From CITY, pg 1

Councilman Dawson
seemed resigned to vot-
ing for approval for the
facility, in opposition to
the voices of the African-
American community,
saying that he didn't feel
that the City could win a
lawsuit on the subject,
and that "There's no use
to keep fighting an issue
that we're going to lose."

Mrs. Harris thanked the
council, saying that "If it
takes a study, I'll do it."
She also joked with the
council that she was dri-
ven to open the center be-
cause she's excited to be
expecting three new
grandchildren in the next
few months. She stated
that her family would be
constructing the facility,
"Because that's the only


way we can afford to do
it," and that "my family
knows that they'll always
have a job there, because
that's what family is all
about."

Mr. Patel, owner of Cross
City Smoke & Spirits, ap-
peared to request the re-
moval of special excep-
tion conditions that pro-
hibit him from display-
ing Christmas gift pack-
ages in the store. That
matter was held over un-
til the City attorney
'could present an opinion
on the best way to re-
move the restrictions.
Gary Land also appeared
with an offer to sell 68
cemetery plots back to
the City for $350.00 each.
The city sells the lots to
the public for $500.00.


From JV Bears, Page 1
The DC offense takes
over with drive moving
into the fourth quarter.
Albach and Roberts
move the ball to the one
yard line where Jordan
Philmon takes the ball
into the end zone. The
Bears have tied the
score with the Bull-
dogs, 12 to 12. The de-
fense again stalls the
Dogs, and on the third
play Galen Hill makes
an interception giving
the offense another'
shot. The offense get-
ting serious moves the
ball downstream.
Hunter Higginbotham
completes the reception
in the end zone for the
score to put the Bears
ahead by six with less
than two minutes to
play. The Bear defense
takes over, determined
to spoil the evening for
the Dogs. The Dogs
work the Bears down to
thirty-four seconds on
the play clock and ,
move the ball within
the Bear twenty-five
yard line. As the clock
winds down, the Bears
receive a questionable
penalty to place the
Dogs within five yards
of the goal line. The
Dogs manage to score
and then proceed to add.
the conversion beating
the Bears 20 to 18.

"We weren't flashy and
we weren't fast" com-
mented Coach Bennett,
"We played with heart
in the second half, with
the defense staying to-
gether and the offen-
sive line really coming
together. I am proud of
all of you, it was a good
effort".

It started when .the
Bears intercepted an In.
dian pass and took off
downfield to score, the
touch down was called
back due to a flag in the
backfield for clipping.
The team and the coach-
es protested the call and
the officials came to the
sideline. While in a heat-
ed discussion with the
Dixie coaching staff two
more flags were thrown.
Head coach Wilkerson
was then
"...no Bear singled
out by
coach has the offi-
been cial and
ordered
removed off the
field and
from the out of
game in the stadi-
um. This
recent was an-


the
Bears as no Bear coach
has been removed from
the game in recent mem-
ory The assistant coach-
ing staff regrouped, set-
fled the team down and
again attempted to play
ball. Fort White is given
several more chances to
score when the Bears
turned over the ball on
fumbles. By the end of
the third quarter the
Bears and the Indians
were receiving penalties
almost every play as the
Indians forced the Bears
into a passing strategy
Fort White-scored with a
field goal late in the
third to push the score
37-21. The fourth quarter
turned out to be a defen-
sive battle for both
teams. Fort White finally
scores with around three
minutes left to play. The
Bears even in defeat still
play as tough as ever, not
giving ii. The offense
takes the ball and Keen
connects a 70 yard pass
to Scott. Scott drags two
Indian defenders into
the end zone to score one
last time for the Bears.

The Coaches and the
fans who attended the
game agreed the Bears
played with heart. Coach
Wilkerson told the team
"We have gotten better,
but put this game behind
us and make Homecom-
ing count next week for
the seniors, and then we
have to get after Taylor."
Homecoming next week,
come out show some
spirit, watch the seniors
play in front of the
hometown crowd as they
dismantle the Trojans.
GO BIG RED!

NEW ATTORNEY SWORN IN


On September 29, 2008, Vicki Waronicki, a 2008 gradu-
ate of Nova Southeastern University Law School who
recently passed the Florida Bar Exam, was sworn in
as an attorney by Dixie County Court Judge Freder-
ick Koberlein. Vicki, a resident of West Palm Beach,
FL, made a request to Judge Koberlein to have her
ceremony take place at the Dixie County Courthouse
as most of her family resides in Cross City including
her mother, Barbara Knapp, sister and brother-in law,
Karina and James Quinn, and their four daughters:
twins Jasmyne and Winter, 8 years old, Coral, 6 years
old,.and Laila, 4 years old.

Additionally, Vicki's sister from Tallahassee, Kristi
Knapp, came to town to attend the ceremony in which
Vicki's husband, Brett, also an attorney, held the
Bible while Judge Koberlein administered the oath.
The entire family wishes to thank Judge Koberlein
for taking time out of his busy schedule to make the
experience so memorable for everyone, particularly
Vicki's four nieces who he even let sit behind the
judge's bench!

dence has grown so much. In fact, he wants to be on

your picture and signature
ID-such as a Florida dri- ,
very's license-to the polls
with you. To ensure a quick
process, any changes to
your name, address or sig-
nature since the last elec-
tion should be updated with
the Supervisor of Elections
office prior to Election Day.

you much vote a provisional
ballot.
Third, when you arrive at
your precinct, a poll worker

I pretty sure I've gone
over this subject before,
but Christmas is coming
up again. So, this is for
those of you who don't
faithfully save every sin-
gle word I type...

First, you need to figure
out what you want a com-
puter for. Do you want to
play the latest games? Do
you just need to be able to
type or check your email
on the go? Do you want it
for a portable entertain-
ment center? Depending
on the use to which the
computer will be put
there are several factors
you'll want to consider.

If you are planning to
use your computer for
school, you really won't
need a top-end system un-
less you are going to be
doing high-end graphics
or audio editing. For
most online courses
you'll just need a comput-
er that can view websites.
An older, used computer
will do that just fine. If
you'll be lugging the com-
puter around with all of
your school books, you
may want to forgo that

must-have feature for
.most of your on-campus
personal computer activi-
ties. Needless to say, if
you are shopping for a
desktop computer, weight
isn't so much of a consid-
eration. Desks rarely get
back strain.

Now I'm going to reiter-
ate some of the numbers
that you'll be looking at
while shopping for a com-
puter. Firstly, lets remem-
ber our metric system.
1 Giga = 1000 Mega.
Therefore a 3 GHz
(pronounced gigahertz)
Processor is far faster
than a 900 MHz
(pronounced megahertz)
processor... don't let those
zeros fool you 3 GHz writ-
ten in MHz would be 3000
MHz. When it comes to
processor speed, the high-
er the number the better.
The same applies to
RAM. You want as much
RAM as you can get. If
you want to play the
newest games you'll need
at least 1 GB (gigabyte) of
RAM. For you business


that are
available to Taylor County
school families. Each ses-
sion will last approximately
20 minutes.

PIT and SAC members have
planned a supper of hot
dogs, baked beans, cole slaw
and desserts at no cost to
parents. Each family is
asked to bring a 2 liter soda,
fruit juice or iced tea.

SAC MEETING:
The School Advisory Coun-
cil is a team of people repre-
senting the.community, par-
ents, teachers, students, ad-
ministrators, support staff,
business people and other
interested cor~munity mem-
bers. The purpose of the
SAC is to assist in prepara-
tion and evaluation of the
results of the school im-
provement plan and to as-
sist the principal with the
annual school budget.

These meetings operate un-
der the Florida Sunshine
Laws and all parents and
the public is welcome to at-
tend. Agendas are available
in the front office 7 days pri-
or to each meeting.

The next meeting will be
held Wednesday
i '.^ '* '


users, web-surfers, and
college students, odds are
that you can get away
with 512 MB (megabytes)
of RAM, but you'll see
drastically improved per-
formance with more
RAM. Once again 1 GB is
twice as much as 512 MB.
Graphics cards will come
in handy for gaming. If
you're getting a system
for gaming make sure the
motherboard has at least
one AGP (advanced
graphics port) slot. Into
the AGP slot should be
placed a graphics card
with the most video mem-
ory that you can afford.
Graphics cards video
memory is measured in
bytes, like RAM. A 512
MB graphics card should
be pretty good, but once
again, the more the mer-
rier. Hard disk space is no
longer as important as it
once was. Not saying that
it is unimportant, you
should get as much hard
disk space as you can af-
ford, it'll always come in
handy; but if you happen
to run out of disk space,
you can always run down
to Wal-Mart and get a
nice external hard disk
drive. Hard disk drive
(HDD) space is measured
in bytes as well. Many
computers have sur-
passed the GB (gigabytes,
again) range and are now
in the TB (terrabytes)
range. 1 TB = 1000 GB.

One of the most impor-
tant bits of your new
computer will be the op-


Dixie County,

Historical.

Society News

The Dixie County Historical
Society had a wonderful
time at the Dixie Music Cen-
ter Anniversary Bash last
Saturday. We had an op-
porunity to communicate
with some local folks and
spread the word that we are
interested in having them
become members of our so-
ciety. We also had some do-
nations of items that we sold
to help our non-profit orga-
nization keep our bills paid.

We want to send a BIG
THANK YOU to Foodland for
their donation of peanuts,
Hitchcock's for drinks, and
Dixie Music for the water.
Also, a thank you to Ferrell
and Betty Mikell for boiling
the peanuts and making
some delicious peanut brit-
tle, to Beth Ann Palmer for
the ice to keep the water and
drinks cold, to Claudia Cal-
houn for baking and donat-
ing some Friendship bread
(which was also delicious)
and to Gini Schneider for
the donation of the Florida
Fire hot sauce that is an
original receive from the


rating system (OS).
From the looks of things
now, if you buy a new
computer, it'll likely have
Windows Vista on it. I
still don't like Vista, my-
self. Others, of course,
may disagree. I expect I'll
change my mind in a few
years. If you can talk
your computer-seller into
putting Windows XP on
your new system, by all
means do so. On the other
side of the computing
scrimmage-line there is
the Mac. The more I use
these systems, the more I
like them. They are per-
fect for most users that
aren't looking to play
games. If you are using
your computer for col-
lege, make sure the
course can be taken using
a Mac before you rush
out and buy one.

Be sure to check out
how many USB ports are
on your new system.
Those are the little
square slots that pretty
much all MP3 players,
and other accessories use.
I've seen a few that had
four USB ports, but they
didn't have PS/2 ports for
mice and keyboards,
therefore a USB mouse
and keyboard had to be
used, thereby reducing
the number of available
ports to two. Two free
USB ports, you will find,
is almost NEVER enough.
I have 6 USB ports on my
computer, and had to get
a hub due to all of the nifty
gadgets I can't live without.


Overstreet family Also,
THANKS to Society mem-
bers Ferrell and Betty
Mike]J, Beth Ann Palmer,
Nina Johnson, Joyce Jones,
and Robert Robinson for be-
ing such a support in selling
these items.

We would also like to say
THANKS to the following
people who donated to our
Computer Fund: Faith Hill,
Dolphus Currie, Hal Chewn-
ing, Jr, Maxie Chewning,
Mark Rains, Dana Johnson,
and Ferrell Mikell. Our
dream has now become a re-
ality Special THANKS also
to Mr. Tom Thornton for get-
ting us online and ready to
move forward.

Also, let us not forget Mrs
Joyce Hamilton who donated
a quilt for our raffle on No-
vember 1st. Thank you! And
that brings me to reminding
everyone that our first annu-
al Quilt and Craft show is
coming up. Do not forget the
date! It is Saturday, Novem-
ber 1st from 10:00 AM until
2:00 PM If you have any
quilts or crafts that you
would like to sell or display,
please contact Evonne Valen-
tine Cline at (352) 498-3128.

Daily headlines.reveal more and more dirt
being uncovered in political circles. For
honest citizens it is our hope and prayer that
this dirt will not only be uncovered, but
removed.


I want to offer my services for removing a
different kind of "dirty." I have been in the
business of "cleaning up Dixie" for over 20
years through myPRESSURE WASHING

business. I clean homes, mobiles, roofs,
driveways, patios, pool decks, etc. I remove
mold, mildew, spiders, dobbers, etc. I also do
all types of painting and have a long list of

credible references.


I promise you that I will do the best job
possible at a reasonable price. I will be
appreciative, courteous, professional, and I
will keep my appointments.


When you "select" someone for your next

greatly appreciate your vote of confidence.

PUBLIC NOTICE OF
INTENT TO ISSUE TITLE V
AIR OPERATION PERMIT
RENEWAL

Florida Department of Environmental
Protection

DRAFT Permit Project No.: 0290004-
011-AV
Suwannee Lumber Company
Dixie County

The Florida Department of Environmen-
tal Protection (permitting authority) gives
notice of its intent to issue a Title V Air
Operation Permit Renewal to Suwannee
Lumber Company for the facility located
at SW of US 19 on Highway 351-A, West
of Cross City, Cross City, Dixie County.
The applicant's name and address are:
Mr. Daniel Dickert, Suwannee Lumber
Company, Post Office Box 5090, Cross
City, Florida 32628.
he Title V Permit Renewal is being is-
sued in order to 1) incorporate the terms
and conditions of previously issued air
construction permit Nos. 0290004-007-
AC, and 0290004-009- AC), and 2) re-
new the Title V Operation permit for this
facility. The permitting authority will is-
sue the PROPOSED Permit, and subse-
quent FINAL Permit, in accordance with
the conditions of the DRAFT Permit un-
less a response received in accordance
with the following procedures results in a
different decision or significant change of
terms or conditions.
The Permitting Authority will accept writ-
ten comments concerning the Draft Title
V
Permit for a period of 30 days from the
date of publication of the Public Notice.
Written comments must be received by
the close of business (5:00 p.m.), on or
before the end of this 30- day period by
the Permitting Authority at Florida De-
partment of Environmental Protection,
Northeast District Office, 7825 Baymead-
ows Way, Suite B-200, Jacksonville,
Florida 32256. As part of his or her com-.
ments, any person may also request that
the Permitting Authority hold a
public meeting on this permitting action.
If the Permitting Authority determines
there is sufficient interest for a public .
meeting, it will publish notice of the time,
date, and location on the official web site
for notices at Florida Administrative
Weekly (FAW) at
http://faw.dos.state.fl.us/ and in a news-
paper of general circulation in the area
affected by the permitting action. For
additional information, contact the Per-
mitting Authority at the above address or
phone number. If written comments or
comments received at a public meeting
result in a significant change to the Draft
Permit, the Permitting Authority shall is-
sue a Revised Permit and require, if ap-
plicable, another Public Notice. All com-
ments filed will be made available for
public inspection.
A person whose substantial interests are
affected by the proposed permitting deci-
sion may petition for an administrative
hearing in accordance with Sections
120.569 and 120.57, F.S.
The petition must contain the information
set forth below and must be filed with
(received by) the Department's Agency
Clerk in the Office of General Counsel of
the Department of Environmental Protec-
tion at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,'
Mail Station #35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000. Petitions filed by
any persons other than those entitled to
written notice under Section 120.60(3),
F.S. must be filed within 14 days of publi-
cation of the Public Notice or receipt of a
written notice, whichever occurs first.
Under Section 120.60(3)' F.S., however,
any person who asked the Permitting
Authority for notice of agency action may
file a petition within 14 days of receipt of
that notice, regardless of the date of
publication. A petitioner shall mail a
copy of the petition to the applicant at
the address indicated above, at the time
of filing.

The failure of any person to file a petition
within the appropriate time period shall
constitute a waiver of that person's right
to request an administrative determina-
tion (hearing) under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this
proceeding and participate as a party to
it. Any subsequent intervention (in a pro-

od as established at 42 U.S.C. Section
7661d(b)(1), to object to the issuance of
any Title V air operation permit. Any pe-
tition shall be based only on objections
to the Permit that were raised with rea-
sonable specificity during the 30-day
public comment period provided
in the Public Notice, unless the petitioner
demonstrates to the Administrator of the
EPA that it was impracticable to raise
such objections within the comment peri-
od or unless the grounds for such objec-
tion arose after the comment period. Fil-
ing of a petition with the Administrator of
the EPA does not stay the effective date
of any permit properly issued pursuant to
the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C.
Petitions filed with the Administrator of
EPA must meet the requirements of 42
U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be

NEW PROSPECT BAPTIST

NEWS


The Holy Spirit was with us Sunday, as we came to-
gether for the 'soul' purpose of worshiping our Heav-
enly Father, and encouraging others to do likewise.
Our choir did a fine job of praising Him in song, after
which Bro. Billy very earnestly proclaimed His Word
from the pulpit, choosing Numbers 1:52 as his text. It
was good to be in God's house, and we thank Him for
adding two new members by letter to our church fam-
ily.

Our monthly Fellowship Supper at NPBC on Wednes-
day has been cancelled in lieu of our upcoming Fall
Festival at Brannin's Camp on the evening of October
25th. In other news, don't forget the Youth Rally at
Pickett Lake on Saturday, October 18th, 6:00 PM.

As always, we encourage you to visit with us at New
Prospect anytime. In fact, we welcome all visitors
AND additions to our church family alike! Have a
good week, and please remember to pray for all those
on the church prayer lists, our President and other
leaders, and all our military personnel. May God
bless and keep you safe.

items that are allowed in these shoe boxes on the
table in the entrance and we beg of you to fill a shoe
box with these items for some poor child who might
not otherwise get a Christmas gift at all. If you don't
want to buy these items and fill a box, you can donate
money and the box will be done for you.

will flow as they will, and that you will
flow with them, to your great delight

Letter to the Editor
RE: Letter on 10/08/08 from Mr. John Bowwell
Why wait until November 4th. If you have issues with
the Chairman of the Dixie COunty Commissioners
(Mr. Hoyt "Buddy" Lamb), and the time that he spends
in Tallahassee for the betterment of this County, then
you should come to the commissioners meeting and
face him man to man. You might be surprised and
amazed at the business that is taking place concerning
your issue with him being in Tallahasseem as he does


announce very clearly (even you would understand) as
the the business he conducts in Tallahassee.
The other point I would like to address with your ar-
ticle, who and when were you elected to represent the
voters of Dixie County (VP. Dixie County Voters
Union)? Possibly the same 13 that voted you V.P. of the
Humane Society!
Respectively,
Ms. B. Gregory
Old Town
