he 2008 homecom-
ing game was a
sweet victory for the
Bears as they whipped
the Hamilton County Tro-
jans 28 to zero. The Bears
started sloppy as they
fumbled the opening
kickoff and the Trojans
recovered the ball. The
Dixie defensive line with
Markell Harris and Klint
Wood turned up the heat
and stopped the Trojans
in four plays. The offense
took over and five plays
later Keen hands the ball
to West for the touch-
down. Cassidy kicks in
the extra point and the
Bears takeoff. The Bears
held the Trojans on their
next possession regain-
ing the ball on a punt re-
covered at the Trojan
forty-nine yard line. Keen
works the ball between
Rodney Scott and
Michael West moving
only couple of yards.


Keen changes the run-
ning game to a pass play
and hits Stephen Godbolt
for a forty-plus yards
touchdown. Cassidy hits
the extra point, and with
two minutes in the first

For Joyce Davis,

Leaving office

"bittersweet"


Above all, Joyce davis would
like to be remembered as a
dedicated public servant.
With an impeccable history
as a Dixie County Tax Col-
lector, there is no doubt she
will be.

Davis began working at the
office in 1981 and enjoyed
working with Hunting and
Fishing, Occupational Li-
censes, and then as Tag and
Title Supervisor. When Tax
Collector Idelle C. Hatcher
decided to retire in 1996,
Davis was encouraged to
run for the job and won.


C f -~Ji 3 D T T
YL"eRvAOR i F-L. 3.
........


"It has always been
an honor to serve the
constituents of Dixie
County", Davis said.
"I have truly loved
it."

Working to make the
tax system easier for
citizens has been one
of Davis' goals wlfile
in office. She is proud of her
work to utilize new technol-
ogy and, begin a relationship
with software provider Man-
atron that has let to major
improvements.

Leaving office for Davis is
very bittersweet. While she
says she knows it is time for
her to move on, she will
greatly miss her role as a
public servant. Helping
solve problems for her cus-
tomers has been the high-
light of her career and she
loves interacting with peo-
ple. She jokingly told one of
her constituents, an elderly
gentleman in his eighties,
that they "grew up togeth-
er." He chuckled in agree-
ment.

The Dixie County Tax Col-
lector's office is focused on
teamwork and Davis says
that is the key component to
providing informed, excel-


lent customer service. She
could not be happier with
the way her employees work
together to serve the com-
munity.

Next up for Davis, after, re-
tirement, is local politics.
Not necessarily as a candi-
date, but certainly as a sup-
porter. She has always loved
local politics and plans to re-
main active in the scene.
She also promises she will
take some time to travel and
just enjoy life.

Considered as a "senior tax
collector" for the number of
years she has been in office,
Davis has-made a lot of
friends through the Associa-
tion. She is especially close
to her "Class of '97" and
continues to have special
friendships with that group.
Even though things will
change as she moves into re-
tirement, she hopes her
friendships will continue.

"I have had my season. I
have had my time, but I can
see it is time to move on,"
Davis said. "I hope others
will see me as a dedicated
and loyal tax collector that
put my obligations to the
public first."


That Dog Still
Won't Hunt
Commission rejects animal control contract, citing "threats"


C county Commisioners
rejected the Dixie
County Humane Soci-
ety's bid to gain control of
the County Animal Control
budget on Thursday The
contract was presented by
John Bowell. Commission-
er Troy Johnson referred to
"threatening" statements
written across, the copy of
the contract provided to
each Commissioner, saying
"It looks like to me you're
trying to pressure this
board. I don't feel like that
is an appropriate way to ask
for support." Mr. Bowell
replied, "I can assume this
is a vote of no." Chairman
Buddy Lamb retorted, "You
can assume whatever you
want. This Board didn't ask
for contracts." Citizen
Nicole Spencer commented
to the Commission that she
had done research, and that
no other area Humane Soci-
ety receives tax money. Ms.


Pamela Swanson of the Hu-
mane Society protested, and
Chairman Lamb told her,
"You can listen, or you can
leave." The Humane Soci-
ety members excercised the
"better part of valor" and
left the meeting.

In another action, the Com-
mission decided to return to
eight hour days on Novem-
ber 3 in order to maximize
worker and citizen safety -
due to decreased daylight.

School Official


ld Town, Florida -
On, Tuesday,
October 14, 2008
at approximately 6:24 pm,
the Dixie County Sher-
iff's Office responded to
the Dixie County School
Board Meeting Room to a
reported disturbance at
the School Board Meet-
ing.

When the Deputies ar-
rived, they made contact
with Mr. Schofield, the
Principal of Dixie Coun-

dent and employees of
the School System during
an expulsion hearing.

It is alleged that Devlin
then kicked a row of
chairs, causing one of
the chairs to strike Mr.
Schofield on the arm and

and exited the parking
lot at a high rate of speed
in his vehicle. Devlin left
the area and fled to
Gilchrist County before
the Deputies could make
contact.

The Sheriff's Office was
able to obtain a warrant
for Devlin and also ob-
tained information on a
possible location of De-
vlin. Devlin left the area
and was residing in Tren-
ton, where he was arrest-
ed by Deputies on Thurs-

General Powell's
endorsement


Last weekend, we were treated to the news that Gener-
al Colin Powell has endorsed Barack Obama for Presi-
dent. This occurred after weeks of sitting on the fence
and subsequent assurances that he also "admired"
John McCain.

Through a long and distinguished military career,
General Powell mastered the art of being non-parti-
san. He also got to be a four star general and Chair-
man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, which does require a
modicum of. political talent, even for a military man.

Powell attained his military apex through an appoint-
ment by former President George H.W Bush, and his
appointment as Secretary of State from President
George W. Bush, serving in that capacity for one term.
The general has largely remained a "nominal Republi-
can" since.

Colin Powell has stated that one of his reasons for en-
dorsing Obama was McCain's choice of Sarah Palin as
his vice-president, and this owing to her lack of expe-
rience; whereas Obama's choice of Senator Joe Biden
was more appropriate to the assignment.

All right, Joe Biden is an old hand on the Washington
political scene. For that matter, so is Ted Kennedy, if
time-in-grade counts for all that much. So is West Vir-
ginia Senator Robert Byrd.

The salient point here is that John McCain also has a
wealth of experience in Washington politics, preceded
by a distinguished military career, and he's running
for the top spot. Sarah Palin is running for vice-presi-
dent, and her governmental credentials are at least as
good as Barack Obama's, but he's planning on taking
over as president on day one.

General Powell also doesn't like the idea that a Repub-
lican president would likely appoint two or three con-
servative justices to the Supreme Court. Well, that
sure won't happen if Obama gets elected. We'd get
Hillary Clinton or maybe Bill, and no telling who else,
but for sure nobody of the caliber of Scalia, Thomas,,
Alito and Roberts. And just why doesn't the general
want a solid conservative majority on the high court?
Does he actually view the Constitution through a lib-
eral lens? Does he think that magnificent document
should be overruled by whatever's cool on the west
coast and in the coffee houses of European Socialists?

General Powell also insists that his endorsement of
Obama has nothing to do with race. Really? As Rush
Limbaugh observed, the General doesn't seem to have
endorsed any inexperienced extreme liberal candi-
dates who were white.

Racism has not entirely disappeared from the Ameri-
can scene, and perhaps it never will. But at this point
in time, the racism of Jeremiah Wright is a much
greater danger than that of David Duke.

There will be black voters who will vote for Obama be-
cause of their shared racial identities, though I expect
there will be more voting against him for better rea-
sons than the "experts" anticipate. There will also be
whites voting against Obama strictly because of his
race, but a lot more that will be voting for him simply
because they fear that it would be "racist" to do other-
wise. Frankly, I wish both groups would stay home on
election day.

Colin Powell has stated that he will not campaign for
Barack Obama. However, through his endorsement, he
already has. It is disappointing that a man of Powell's
stature has been thusly compromised after his years of
service to our country.

'...our advertisers. No, really. I've met almost every single
person who is running campaign ads with us, and as a
group, they're nice, fair-minded folk. If you see their ads in
these pages, you'll know that they're basically well-meaning
people, who will put the needs of the people above any sort
of good-old-boy, I'll-sgratch-your-cousins'-back-if-you-
scratch-mine sort of politics as usual. Vote for any of them,
but remember, if you don't vote, you can't complain! (And
complaining is fun, so don't miss out.)

I've had several people ask me to do an editorial explaining
how they should vote on the amendments that will beion the
ballot in November. It's boring, I know, but it may be actual-
ly helpful. So many of them are worded in such a way that
the normal person can read it and have no earthly idea, what
they're voting for. (Gee, you think they plan it that way?)
I'm not'going to tell you how to vote, but I will tell you how
I'm going to, and explain why

AMENDMENT ONE: This one is easy The people behind this one
want to remove the part of the Florida Constitution that al-
lows the Florida Legislature to "oversee" the ownership of
Florida real estate by "aliens ineligible for citizenship. The
phrase has been there for-like 100 years and the Legislature
has never bothered to use it. I'm going to vote NO on this
one, because I think we should keep an eye on the ability of
foreigners to buy our land, and two, because I think "if it's
not broke, don't fix it." Let's not change the Constitution
just to make the PC. police happy.

AMENDMENT TWO: This is a touchy one. This is the "Florida
Marriage Protection Amendment," that definesimarriage as
one man and one woman and prohibits any other sort of def-
inition. While this is a highly personal moral issue, one of
the main arguments for it is that if the Supreme Court were
to lose its mind (like, say, under an Obama administration),
it could force Florida to recognize all of those California,
Hawaii and Michigan marriages under the "full faith and
credit" clause of the Constitution. I don't like the idea of
the federal government bossing us around, and I really don't
like the idea of any more of our laws being written in Cali-
fornia; (Thanks, ohso much, Charlie Crist...what were you
thinking?) The best argument against.it is that long-time
partners could be denied such simple things as hospital visi-
tation or being able to make end-of-life decisions for their
loved ones. This argument could be easily fixed by a much
simpler statute requiring that hosptials accept written in-
structions or contracts regarding such matters, and then for.
couples to plan in advance, with written directives...hot to
r. mention a little common decency and humanity on the part
of the hospital-visitation gestapo. All in all, I think this is a
good idea that will encourage marriage and protect chil-
dren. I will vote YES on this one.

AMENDMENT THREE: This one allows the Property Appraiser to
ignore the value of solar panels or upgrades made to homes
to increase wind resistance. This is a no brainer. Any little
tax incentive to help reduce our energy dependence or to
make a home. more hurricane proof (and thereby, to save the
taxpayers from having to rebuild it) is a good thing, that
should be encouraged. YES.

AMENDMENT FOUR: This one allows a property with a perpetual
(forever) conservation easement to be property taxfree....for-
ever. There is a second part that requires that land used for
conservation be taxed based on its character and use. I had
to think about this one a long time, because on the surface,
it sounds good. Conservation is a good thing, right? But
think about it...this would allow people with huge tracts of
very expensive land in Dixie, but who live and pay taxes
somewhere else, who use Dixie property as their personal
hunting club or waterfront playground to avoid paying any


To the Editor:

I would like to thank the Dixie County Advocate for print-
ing my recent letter concerning the mobile home eyesore
on South US 19. That lead to questions asked by our Coun-
ty Commissioners, and answers found by our Building and
Zoning Representatives. Thanks to all involved! And
SHAME on that contractor for his dirty business dealings!
His company's name--if revealed--would perhaps prevent
future rip-offs.

In the beginning, I considered going directly to the
Commissioner's meeting, but given all that they already
have on their plates--the dog lady, the wildflower seed guy,
and not to mention the debate over the newspapers--(Kathy,
you go girl! I am such a fan!) I wrote the letter instead. .If
only all my questions could be answered so quickly!
Again, thank you!
Kathy L. Soares, Old Town

property taxes on it....forever....while the guy living in a
trailer on the two acre lot next door has to scrape up his tax-
es, regardless, to pay for the roads & services used by the
rich "conservation" guy. Dixie has lots of conservation
land, and we can't afford to lose any more tax revenue.
Georgia has a similar law, but they provide rural counties
with a safety net: if the county loses more than 3% of tax
revenue due to conservation easements, the State of Georgia
picks up half of the loss..,this .Florida amendment has no
such safety net. Dixie will lose, and lose big. The second
part is a great idea, and would allow people who live on the
water in modest homes to avoid being taxed as if their land
was going to be a condo site. This amendment needs to be
split in two parts before I could vote for it. NO.

AMENDMENT FIVE: This "tax swap" is one of those pig-,wearing-
lipstick (sorry, Sarah) amendments. They're selling it to us
as a "property tax cut," that will help schools with funding,
but what it does is leave the legislature with no option other
to increase the sales tax and to impose a sales tax on ser-
vices (and THEN they can still jack up your property taxes,
anyway) I've read some estimates that say it'll require al-
most 50% increases in sales tax revenue. Every other option
is excluded from the bill. Unless you want to pay sales taxes
on going to the dentist, your lawyer, or your hairdresser, this
one is an easy NO.

AMENDMENT SIX: This is really like the second part of Amend-
ment Four, above. It lets the Property Appraiser tax water-
front businesses on the basis of the actual use, not the
"highest and best use." It's good for fish houses and fisher-
men in Horseshoe, Suwannee, and Jena. We need those jobs.
The only mark against it? Homes are excluded. I'm voting
YES, anyway

AMENDMENT SEVEN: Prohibits the government from barring an
entity from a public program based on religion and deletes
the provision against using public money in aid of any
church-related organization. This will allow Florida to give
drug-treatment contracts, aid organizations, and charter
school status to religious groups. This is a good thing for
parents who desire choice, and people who would prefer to
get faith-based help. The only downside may be for the
churches themselves, who may find themselves having to
satisfy government "diversity" requirements. That's their.
problem, though: they can always turn down the money
YES.

AMENDMENT EIGHT; Allows local governments to impose (yet)
more sales taxes to benefit Community Colleges. I'm a big
fan of Community Colleges,-but enough with the taxes al- -
ready!! Fire some administrators if you're short on
cash...or here's an idea, make them actually TEACH a few
classes. NO.

AMENDMENT NINE: Amendment nine limits the amount that a
school system can spend on non-classroom expenses to 35%
of the budget, and allows (but does not require) state money
to be spent on private schools. 65% of the budget must be
spent on classroom instruction. This seems like a reason-
able minimum to me, and it might allow a few obvious cor-
rections like paying a great math or science teacher at least
as much as a desk-warming "supervisor." I also like that it
allows movie school choice for parents, by allowing voucher
programs to give kids a chance to get out of failing schools.
Parents should be able to "vote with their feet" (and to take
their tax money with them) when it comes to the best
method of educating their own children. I can hear the
teachers' union screaming already: but it will take money
out of our public schools! You shouldn't be allowed to do
that! In my opinion, when the welfare of the government
school system is considered more important than the welfare
of the students, something is horribly wrong. (Disclaimer:
my kids are homeschooled.) I'm voting YES.


This coming election is a very important one. I hope all cit-
izens take notice to it and vote. I have listened with an
open ear to all the debates and all the rhetoric that has gone
on. The conclusion I have come to is, that everything this
country has been and will be in the future is hanging on the
edge. Neither candidate is perfect. Both have voted for and
against many issues that they have believed in. Good or
bad.

What has gotten to me in just this past week is that one of
them believe in a communist vein. My mother came from
the country of Latvia. She came here alone and knew not
the English language; to people she did not know. When
Latvia finally won its independence she was to old to make
it back there. I have a cousin who did. What he saw was a
country that had been'raped and pillaged. The people in
poor conditions. What was the family farm had no bound-
aries left to tell where you were. You see they believed in
take from one who may have had something, togive to
those that didn't. Large tracks of land were used for gov-
ernment co-ops. The people themselves got very little of
anything produced. When my cousin went over there just 2
years ago, some of the family had just gotten indoor plumb-
ing for the first time. Outhouses were the norm. To think
that this could be at this time was a shock to me. They had
very hard times and were just starting to get out of them.

My point is this, there is a candidate that stands on this.
Because there are some that may have more than others
and have worked hard to get what they got, they now are go-
ing to have it taken away to be given to people who don't
have as much. This is the very core of communism. Those
in power will have, while those of the "regular guy" or "Joe
the plumber", will have not. If we wait long enough history
will repeat itself. Why? Because those who lived through
the times are dying along with the memories of what had
taken place. The Bible teaches about what is going to hap-
pen in the end times. I believe we are in these times right
now. Not some distant point but right now. We cannot stop
this train that is coming at us at a high speed now. I just
pray that we can survive the impact. It is going to come to
the time that we have only each other to rely on. Neighbor
helping neighbor. Family sticking together for the good of
the whole. Is this going to happen? or is it going to be
"every man for himself'? I pray for the first, because if it is
every man for himself, we will not survive.

DCHS Student Arrested for
Marijuana Possession

Cross City, Florida- On Thursday, October 16, 2008, a
Dixie County High School Student was arrested for
possession of marijuana on DCHS Campus. A routine
check of the High School Parking Lot with the Dixie
County Sheriff's Office, K-9 Unit and High School Staff
revealed that one of the vehicles in the parking lot pos-
sibly contained an illegal substance.

When the School Resource Deputy requested to look
into the vehicle the student told the Deputy where mar-
ijuana could be found in the vehicle. The Deputy found
several smoked marijuana cigarettes and one un-
smoked marijuana cigarette.

The juvenile was arrested and transported to the Dixie
County Jail. Where the juvenile was processed and re-
leased to his 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.

Football


From RANGERS, pg 1
The Rangers get fired up
on their next possession
when Javonta Jones
sprints downfield 50
yards to score. The con-
version is good and the
Rangers close the gap,
ending the third quarter
only four points behind.
The Devils closed the
door on the Rangers dur-
ing the fourth quarter
with a touchdown, eight
plays after-the kickoff
and an on-side kick re-


cover, leading to another
touch down/extra point
combo making it 25-8.
The Rangers on the next
three plays, score on a
long pass from Mackie
McFall to Kendall
Copeland, with the con-
version completed bring-
ing the Rangers a little
closer to closure in the
game, but with less than
a minute they couldn't
catch the Devils.
The final score was 25-8

From BEARS, page 5
The Trojans fail to hang
on and the Bears recover
a fumbled ball. Keen
gives the ball to Godbolt
for a thirty-nine yard
touchdown. Cassidy adds
the extra point for a 21-
point lead. During the
next ten minutes of play,
both teams swap the ball
back and forth, neither
gaining over the other.
Fourth quarter action be-
gins with Keen handing*
off to Scott for a long
sprint to the end zone,
but the TD is called back
for holding in the back-
field. The Trojans take
over on downs, but are
held tight by the Bear de-
fense on the Hamilton
twenty-eight yard line.
The Trojans make four
plays then punt the ball.
Scott blocks the punt and
even though the Trojans
recover their ball, the
Bears take over on downs
at the Trojan eleven-yard
line. As the play ends,
Cody Spurlin collapses
on the sideline. He is im-


mediately surrounded by
the Dixie County para-
medics and staff. As they
prepared him for trans-.
port to the hospital, the
whole stadium is hushed,
and the team kneeled in
silent prayer for their
teammate. (As it turns
out our prayers were an-
swered, Cody was re-
leased after a short stay
in the hospital.) The
game resumed and on the
next play, Scott adds six
more points to his season
total and Cassidy does
the same with his kick.
The 2008 homecoming
game goes down in the
books with the Dixie
County Bears 28 and the
Hamilton Trojans score-
less.
The Bears take on the
Taylor County Bulldogs
next in Cross City, for a
district game. This is an
important game for the
Bears as they look for-
ward for a chance to a
district playoff game.
Come out and support
.your favorite hometown
high school. GO BEARS!


Cddy Spurlin was
injured during the
game, but
continued to play
until his injury
forced hLm from
the game and
into the hospital.

He returned to
the hospital for a
check for brain
injuries early this
week.

GENE.



HIGGINBOTHAM





"A common man for the common people."
Hello,
My name is Gene Higginbotham, and I am seeking the office of County Commission District 1. I am the son of Wade and Betty Higginbotham, and married to Darlene. We have 5 children and 6 grandchildren.
I am a fourth generation resident of Dixie County and District 1.
*After graduating Dixie County High School I served 4 years in the United States Air Force.
*I've worked 23 years for the Department of Corrections at Cross City Cl, 5 as a Department Head
el have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management
*I have taught computer, business, and management classes for 12 years.
|was in charge of the "Florida Computers for Kids" program for 3 years, donating over $120,000 per year in computers to Florida schools and organizations for children.
ol am a member and State Director of the Florida Cattleman's Association.
*1 am the President of the Dixie County Cattleman's Association.
*I am a member of the Dixie County Horsemen's Association, FFA Alumni, Historical Society, Quarterback Club and-the Take Stock in Children mentoring program.
I1 have been a buyer at the Suwannee River Livestock Fair since my children were in school..
*I have, and will continue to. be an advocate for the Youth of Dixie County. Sponsoring and supporting them is an investment in our future.

If elected, my goals will be the same as I have consistently stated. They are concerns that YOU have voiced to me over the past eight months.
*I will Lower the High Impact Fee.
*I will cut excessive and wasteful spending
o*I will work to bring jobs and industry into Dixie County
*I will protect our natural resources.

Remember, I will listen to YOU and be open to your suggestions. I've always believed a quote. "There is no limit to what can be done. if it doesn't matter who aets the credit." Working together
we can make a difference. If we all work together, listen and learn from each other, whether it be what we want to hear or not, WE can make a difference.

When Harry Truman became President, Sam Rayburn took him aside and told him, "From here on you're going to have lots of people around you. They'll try to put up a wall and cut you off form
any ideas but theirs. They'll tell you what a great man you are. But Harry, we both know you ain't. This quote says a lot. We can profit from constructive criticism or be ruined by praise. Criticism
is tough to swallow, but in either case, we should value those who speak the truth to us.


If Elected, I promise you this:

*I will work for YOU.
*I1 will listen to your concerns and be open to your suggestions.
*I will be your County Commissioner no matter who you are or where you live.
*I have the education and management background needed and the ability to make
tough decisions necessary during rough times. But I also know the need for,
gold old common sense and to listen to the people.

I am just a common man, for the people of Dixie County. Please go to the polls on November 4th.
Help me to become YOUR County Commissioner. Your concerns will be my priorities.

tality, time and consideration given to me, while I was visiting.

Steinhatchee River
Coastal Cleanup

Volunteer a morning to
clean up the river and
roads in Steinhatchee
and Jena.'

Saturday October 25th is
the day Mark your calen-
dar and come down to the
Steinhatchee Community
Center at 8:00 A.M. Bags
will be provided and
Hungry Howie's has once
again agreed to donate
its delicious pizza for all
workers! You must sign
in!

If you have access toa
boat and can clean the
banks of the river, it real-
ly needs some "tender
loving care." Remember
every bit of line and de-
bris that is removed form
our water means one less
turtle, pelican, manatee
or fish that might die
from the man made haz-
ards.

Road clean up is equally
important because the
cellophane, plastic, paper,
bottles, cans and you
name it that get thrown
out of the cars and
trucks finds its way to
our water eventually.
Plus, of course, it is
tacky to look at our vil-
lage and see the litter.


Be part of the solution,
not the pollution!

You will be finished and
fed by the Noon football
games or still have time
to attend the Taylor
County Forest Festival in
Perry! So put on your
work clothes, wear a hat,
gloves and shoes, not san-
dals, and help your com-
munity be a little cleaner
and brighter!

This is a once a year en-
deavor. Give part of
yourself for your commu-
nity for a few hours. It
will matter and also be a
great example for our
youngsters, who will also
be participating.

If you cannot come the
day of the "official"
cleanup, call me and I
will give you bags for you
to use 'in an area of your.
choosing or in an area I
can suggest.

The weather will be glori-
ous. The camaraderie
will be great. There will
be no political speeches!
No TV No advertise-
ments. Just the blue sky,
the green water and the
removal of a lot of junk.

Keep Steinhatchee Beau-
tiful!

'utrp Pored


The Lundeen family is gath-
ering for Thanksgiving for
the first time since' Dad died
'lat winter. Carl (Gregory
Mercier), the middle-son, ar-
rives to find that Mom (Jan-
ice Grant) is having prob-
lems with the loss of her
husband of 35 years. He is
surprised to find that Dad
(James Woodham) has re-
turned, as a ghost that only
he can see and hear and he
really wants no part of dead
Dad's urgent need to finally
tell his wife that he loves
her. The rest of the family,
Michael the doctor (Mitch
Mercier), his wife Jill (Alix
Spurlock), and Stacy (Krys-
tal Wimberly) have not been


Ti mi irT


their selling of more
bandwidth than they have
is simple. Everyone isn't
going to be using the in-
ternet all at the same
time. Everyone isn't go-
ing to use 100% of their
bandwidth all of the time.
So, they can get away
with selling more product
than they have. But, what
happens when everyone
tries to use what they
paid for up front simulta-
neously? No one gets
what they paid for.

I mean, if an automaker
were to sell 4000 cars that
aren't built yet, could
they get away with only
building 2000 cars? Every-
one won't be driving their
cars at the same time,
and they won't always
use all of the trunk space.
So why not? I don't think
that would go over very
well. Of course, airlines
do this very thing regu-
larly I personally find it
appalling. You should not
sell something that you
don't have. If internet
service providers were to
actually sell the band-
width that they are really
capable of supporting, in-
ternet congestion would
not be a problem. What
would be a problem, you
ask? Well, if the compa-
nies were to do that, there
wouldn't be enough inter-
net connections to go
around. But then again,
there aren't enough inter-
net connections to go
around as it is. I have a
friend who is currently


around too much in the lasi
ten months since Dad died.

waiting for one of his
neighbors to move out,
discontinue their inter-
net account, or buck the
kickit just so he can get
an internet connection,
So, by selling only the
bandwidth that an inter-
net service provider has,
that problem would get
worse. However, the peo-
ple who actually can get
high-speed internet
would get what they are
paying for.

Oh, yes. The title up
there '"Application Agnos-
tic" that's what they are
calling their new internet
traffic cop routines. The
way it works is this, they
don't actually monitor
WHAT you are sending,
just HOW MUCH of it
you are sending. Thus
during periods when
their wires are reaching
their maximum capacity,
they target the users that
are using the most band-
width and slow them
down. The thing is, those
users are usually paying
more money for their ex-
tra speed, so by paying
extra, ultimately they are
just throwing their mon-
ey away. Oh yeah, most of
the information I gave

Florida Supreme Court
Committee to Host
Meeting on Future of
Florida Courts at
Local Library
Think of the changes Flori-
da has undergone in the last
two decades and imagine
the changes that will take
place in the next two
decades.
As Florida changes, so too
must Florida courts. Sheer
population growth will in-
crease the number of cases
coming into the courts. Sig-
nificant changes in demo-
graphic and societal trends
will alter the kinds of cases
that the courts must resolve.
Economic changes will im-
pact the resources available
to handle cases. Emerging
technologies will change the
ways people interact
with each other and with
the courts.
Florida's judicial branch is
working on a long-range
strategic plan so that the


courts can respond to new
challenges and stand firm
as a strong cornerstone of a
well-functioning society and
a healthy economy. And it
wants to hear from people
around the state as it devel-
ops its plan.
The Supreme Court Task
Force on Judicial Branch
Planning will hold five more
meetings around the state.
The Task Force is inviting
citizens and local officials to
share their thoughts on
trends and conditions that
they believe will impact the
ability of the judicial
branch to carry out its mis-
sion over the next 20 years.
The current strategic plan
for the Florida judicial
branch, which can be found
at
www.flcourts.org/gen.pub-
lic/stratplen/index.shtml,
includes the mission and
vision of the branch.
The Suwannee River Re-
gional Library will host a fo-
rum on this Wednesday, Oc-
tober 22nd 5-8pm.

SPRINGHOUSE
QUILTER'S NEWS

Twenty of the Springhouse
Quilters completed their
Round Robin and brought
them to show at the meeting
last Tuesday. The robin
quilt tops were all hung out
around Springhouse for a
full viewing. They were all
very beautiful. The partici-.
pating members were all .
very pleased with the Round
Robin project. The owner of
the center block of the robin
got their original center
block back with extra bor-
ders having been added to
create unusual quilt tops.
Now it is time for the own-
ers to sandwich these tops
and finish the quilting. The
complete Round Robin pro-
ject may be viewed on the
Springhouse web page at
www.springhousequilters.or
g.
In addition to the Round
Robins projects there were
plenty of completed quilt


projects for
show and tell.
Even though it
was not a new-
ly created quilt,
Joyce Snoddy
showed an ear-
ly (1930's) quilt U
top she recent-
ly received
from a family *
member. This UL
top is a one-of-a *
kind quilt and
is a prized possession of the
Snoddy family.
Springhouse members vot-
ed to begin planning for the
2009 quilt show during their
meeting. To be able to pre-
sent a great show with lots
of quilts, members now will
begin to get the show plans
started.
Word was received late on.
Sunday that a former mem-
ber of Springhouse Quilters
and a resident of the Tren-
ton area for many years,
Edna Barron is in the hospi-
tal. Ms. Edna moved away


from Gilchrist County about
a year agc to be near her
daughter. Well wishes and a
speedy recovery is extended
to Ms. Edna and the Barron
family.

house Quilters meets each

of quilters consists of those
who work and want to be a
part of the Springhouse
Guild

My Statement to


You


"I am totally committed to bringing you the best law enforcement possible. You deserve and I will provide comprehensive
coverage that will be impartial and I will enforce the laws of the State of Florida to insure that you, your children, grandchildren,
friends and neighbors will feel secure in your homes and community. Drug dealers, thieves and lawbreakers beware; you will feel
the presence of law enforcement and the presence of a law-abiding community to bring you to justice!
To show that my commitment to you is genuine and sincere, I pledge the following; Upon being sworn in as your Sheriff, I
will donate back a portion of the Sheriff's salary to the County for use in other important areas. The present Sheriff's annual sal-
ary is $102,000. Under present Florida law, I must accept this salary, but I can and will donate back to the county a total of
$30,000 during the course of the year. What I am trying to say to you is that I am committed to doing a quality job for you, regard-
less of the payl You deserve the very best in law enforcement and I assure you that I will put forth every effort to see that illegal
activity in this county, regardless of who it is, will be stopped!"

"Administrative costs and personnel associated with your Sheriffs Dept. have risen at an alarming rate and add nothing to the bottom line of having deputies
on the road, ready for dispatch upon your urgent call." My goal, as your sheriff will be to decrease administrative personnel and increase the number of
deputies on call for your security. Not counting the sheriffs salary, over $500,000.00 is spent annually for administrative positions. This includes investiga-
tors, sergeants, captains, lieutenants, majors and chief. Under my budget plan, we can perform the same services currently being provided at over
$500,000.00 for under $360,000.00. The difference, $140,000.00 will be used to place three additional deputies on the road. (amount includes fringe bene-
fits, retirement, health insurance, etc..) This savings is just from the law enforcement side of operations. There are additional savings that can be imple-,
mented on the jail operations side. The jail should be a place where a person who has broken the law is placed and kept under strict guidelines. Fair, but
firm and without the freedoms that law abiding citizens enjoy. It should send a message that when you break the law, you will do the time. It will not be a
hotel atmosphere. Your tax dollars can be conserved with a well run jail and my plan calls for an economical operation. "
S = .. ,," ,, - - . f : ._ . . . , 'd '' : : . '-. ..' '.. ;.- .


THE SAFETY OF YOUR FAMILY AND FUTURE GENERATIONS IS AT STAKE.
TO UNDERSTAND THE ISSUES AND THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS ELECTION.


PLEASE TAKE THE TIME
OUR COUNTY IS AT THE


CROSSROAD OF CHOOSING A COURSE FOR THE FUTURE. I WILL PUT FORTH THE EFFORT TO IN-
SURE IMPARTIAL LAW ENFORCEMENT. I WILL GUARD THE SAFETY OF'THIS COUNTY THE SAME AS
I GUARD THE SAFETY OF MY FAMILY. YOU HAVE MY WORD ON IT!

FOR THE SAFETY AND SECURITY OF OUR
FUTURE GENERATIONS, I HUMBLY ASK FOR
YOUR VOTE AND SUPPORT

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR

DRINKING WATER
Town of Cross City Has Levels of Disinfection By-Products Above
Drinking Water Standards

What happened?

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is
not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened,
what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.

We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing
results we received from samples taken August 12, 2008 show that our system ex-
ceeds the standards, or maximum contaminant levels (MCL), for Disinfection By-
Products (DBPs), which includes Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and Haloacetic
Acids [Five] (HAA5s). The standard for TTHMs is 80 micrograms per liter ( g/L).
and the average level of TTHMs over the last year was 91.86 g/L. The standard
for HAA5s is 60 g/L; the average level of HAA5s over the last year was 121.1
g/L.

What should I do?
Some people who drink water containing TTHMs in excess of the MCL over
many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous
system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

Some people who drink water containing HAA5s in excess of the MCL over many
years may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs may choose al-
ternative sources of water for ingestion.

What does this mean?

.This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified imme-
diately.

What is being done?

This is what we are doing to lower our DBPs levels: The Water Treatment Plant
design modifications were completed in August. While the most recent lab re-
sults were over the maximum level, significant reductions were made. The next
quarterly results should reflect the plant's potential to meet requirements; howev-
er, you will continue to receive these notices until our water system's previous 12-
month average is within limits.



For more information, please contact Mike Cassidy at
(352) 498-3079
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, es-
pecially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people
in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by post-
ing this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

This notice is being sent to you by Town of Cross City

youth, and folks that stayed cleaning up the gym,
moving all the tables and chairs, cleaning the floors
in that big gym, carrying everything back and forth,'
working in the kitchen! A special thank you to Pas-
tor John Edmisten from Charity Baptist in Perry for
that morning message! It has been stated that he has
the fasting growing church in Perry! He not only
preached, he played his. harmonica, guitar and sang

playing her fiddle! Others singing for the LORD
were: Janice Morrow, Stephen Reed, Sarah Holden,
Harry Gatlin, Libby Gray, Emily Ellison, Jessica
Dowwney, Leon Holden III, Chris Holden, Donnie
Morrow, Jennifer Ellison! We were also proud to see
Little Anna and Brian Ellison quoting their Bible
verses for us! Jessica Downing did her first perfor-
mance playing her qui tar! Praise GOD for the talents
given to our folks! You-all do a.great job and we ap-
preciate everything you do for the LORD! We can not
possibly name all of GOD'S helpers to make out 78th
Homecoming such a memorable day! We're all in
"GOD'S service" as believers. And serving HIM is a
sheer delight. May our lives be a "show and tell" for
GOD"S glory!

Don't for get choir practice will resume this week
at 4:30 PM. Victory Sunday with Pastor Jim Fellure

age groups for you to learn about GOD's love for each
of us. Tell your parents to bring you for the Awanna
activities. If you need a ride call 498-2108 and our
