Bulldogs Down Bears

Sophomore Finnix Jackson knocked out, transported to hospital


'by John Kelley
he Taylor County
Bulldogs beat the
Dixie County
Bears in a run-away
game, 57 to 24, last Friday
evening in Cross City
The Bears got off to a
good start on the opening
drive of the game when
DC Quarterback.
Kameron Keen sneaked
into the end zone to
score. Zack Cassidy
kicked in the extra point
giving the Bears a seven-
point lead. On the kick
off return, Sophomore
Finnex Jackson is hit
hard and falls uncon-
scious to the turf. The
Dixie County emergency
staff rushes to his aid.
The stadium was silent
as the paramedics pre- -
pared Finnex for a ride to
the hospital and both
teams were huddled to-
gether in silent prayer for
the fallen player. The Tay-
lor County coach came
across the field to offer


his concern to the Dixie
coaching staff, in'this
scene strangely reminis-
cent of last weeks game
where another Dixie
County player suffered a
season ending injury The
game was resumed and
the Dogs score on their
first play, further demor-
alizing the Bears. The
Dogs continue to advance
their lead in the first


quarter with another
touchdown at the three
minute mark. The score
at the end of the first
quarter stands 15 to 7
Taylor leading.

The Second quarter
starts with the Bears in
possession of ball, ad-
vancing to field goal
range.

"Crack"down


in Cross City


C ross City, Florida- On Thurs-
day, October 23, 2008, the Dixie
County Sheriff's Office, Nar-
cotics Unit made an arrest in connec-
tion with an investigation that has been
on-going for three months.

The Sheriff's Office received informa-
tion concerning the sale of illegal nar-
cotics in the Cross City Area. The in-
formation was specific in that a particu-
lar residence was identified as being a
location where "Crack" cocaine was be-
ing sold.

Through numerous sources the Sher-
iff's Office was successful in purchas-
ing "Crack" cocaine from an occupant
of the residence.

Arrested and charged with one count of
Sale of Cocaine (Crack) was Sharyl
Williams, age 28, of Cross City.
Williams currently is being held in the
Dixie County Jail on a $75,000 Bond.


Sharyl Williams, of Cross City

The investigation is continuing and ad-
ditional arrests are expected.

Studies estimate that there were ap-
proximately 700,000 cocaine and crack
users in Florida in 2005, with 94,000 of


Florida Supreme Court

Upholds Anderson


those under the age of
17. 205,000 were estimat-
ed to be between 18 and
25 years old.


Ex-Commissioners

Indicted for allegedly

taking bribes

Additional indictments may be pending


q ormer Dixie Coun-
ty Commissioners .
,. A lton Lan d and
John L. Driggers,
along with retired Building
and Zoning official Billy
Keen were charged Thurs-
day with solicitation of
bribes in connection with
business pending before the
County*Commission, for
conspiracy to commit that
offense, and for making
false statements during a
federal investigation. All.
three pled not guilty

,.The indictment alleges that
from August to December of
2006, the three men took
money from a man "repre-
senting himself as Sean
Michaels," in re-
turn for ap- Read it fe
proval on pro-
posed Dixie The entire
County develop- is ;
ments, and for
attempts to in- www.dcai
fluence mem-
bers of the
Board to obtain.
approval for the develop-
ments.

Driggers and Land are
charged with one cotut of
making false statements;
Keen is charged with two
counts.

Additional indictments on
other people are believed-to
be pending; a representative
of the U.S. Attorney's office
declined to comment-beyond
the content of the current
indictments, and would not
state exactly what property
or properties were the sub-
ject of the alleged bribes.

The indictment alleges that
Billy Keen solicited $1,200 to
influence Driggers and
Land on August 9, 2006, and
that on August 23, Land ac-
cepfed $2,000 and Driggers
accepted,$3,000 with agree-
ments by both men to accept
a total of $5,000 "to influ-
ence other commissioners
to re-zone or approve the de-
velopment of property with-
in Dixie County" .

The indicted continues to al-
lege that on August 30, Land
accepted $2,000 and Drig-
gers accepted $2$000 on the
31st, Land accepted another
$1,000 on September 14th,
and then another,$1,000 on
October 26, 2006. The indict-
meht does not clarify why


the men allegedly received
.$6,000 instead of the $5,000
that was referred to in the
indictment.

The false statement charges
apparently stemmed from.
testimony that Keen gave in
February and August of
2008, and that Land and
Driggers made in July of
this year, denying that they
recieved any money from
Sean Michaels.

A search of county records
from that time made by the
Advocate showed no rele-
vant re-zoning or subdivi-
sion approvals that were
passed by the Commission,
except for a county-owned
boat ramp.
or yourself. Sean Michaels -
is listed as the
indictment Registered
available at Agent and
Manager of
dvocate.net Gideon Devel-
opment, LLC,
of Fort Laud-
erdale, which is
listed as an "inactive" Lim-
ited Liability Company in
the State of Florida. The
mailing address listed for
the company appears to be
an office suite occupied by
attorneys. The other man-
ager listed in corporation
records, Alan Steinberg of
Coral Gables was not men-
tioned in the indictment.

The name Sean Michaels
was added to the corpora-
tion's paperwork as the
"Manager" on August 3,
2006, just six days before he
allegedly gave Billy keen
$1,200 in Dixie County.

The Advocate's phone calls
requesting comment from
Keen, Land and Driggers
were not returned.

An indictment is issued by a
a grand jury, and is a writ-
ten accusation charging that
an individual has broken
the law. Before any such in-
dividual may be convicted,
guilt must be proven in a
court trial "beyond a rea-
sonable doubt." The pur-
pose of an indictment is to
inform the accused of a
charge so that a defense can
be prepared. An indictment
is not a statement of guilt.

The trial was set for Decem-
ber 8th at the Federal Court-
house in Gainesville.

s was reported'
f earlier this year
in the Advocate,
' t Ie'&- e Anderson, Jr.,
ot Ande rson-Columbia,
and a resident of Old
Town filed suit against
The Gannett Company, Inc.
after The Pensacola News
Journal published a series
of stories back in 1998 con-
cerning the tragic death of
Mr. Anderson's wife in a
hunting accident a few
days after he filed for di-
vorce.

Anderson claimed that
the statements made in the
newspaper, although factu-
ally true, caused him emo-
tional distress and por-
trayed him in a "false
light." A jury awarded

him $18 million dollars in
2003, but an Apellate court
overturned the award.

On Thursday, The Florida
Supreme Court upheld the
Apellate Court decision,
writing'that "the danger
in unreasonably impeding
constitutionally protected
free speech," was their pri-
mary concern. This rul-
ing should put a quick end
to all such "false light"
cases in the state.

The Court Stated: "We ap-
prove the result of the
First District's decision in
Anderson, but not the rea-
soning to the extent it rec-
ognized that a cause
of action for false light ex-'
isted."

University of Florida law
professor Jon Mills was
Quoted in the Gainesville
Sun as saying "The origi-
nal (Anderson) case really
endangered some major
aspects of press freedom. "


Shelbi McCall participated in the

What happened to
the price of petrol?


I really never thought I'd be celebrating the
price of gasoline falling below $3.00 a gallon. Until
quite recently, I never thought it would get that high!
But under three is a lot better than over four, or well
over a buck a gallon below what it cost last summer.,
Still, it hasn't been that many years since a dollar a
gallon less would have meant it was free, or even enti-.,
tfled you to a complimentary oil change, so I hope it
hasn't bottomed out just yet. .


Why is this happening? I expect a lot of people
would tell you that it was the economic collapse that
hit Wall Street and caused financial institutions to
tremble, crumble and collapse. That was not good
news for anybody, except whoever it was who cleaned
up on the bad news, and we still don't know who that
might have been, and maybe we never will.

While there can be little doubt that the prob-
lems on Wall Street and elsewhere contributed to the
declining price of petrol, we would do well to remem-
ber that this development had its beginning before the
panic hit the market. The rapidly escalating price of
motor fuel came to a screeching halt as soon as Wash-
ington politicians started talking seriously about go-
ing after domestic petrol supplies in places like1AN-
WAR and our coastal waters, places the environmen-
talists had lobbied to keep off limits and to hell with
the US economy or the fact that we were sending bil-
lions to hostile countries, including sopie that were
supporting our enemies in the Middle East.

As the towel-heads at OPEC were wetting.
themselves over the prospect of America becoming en-/
ergy-independent, the Wall Street speculators also got
a little antsy not all that long after investing in real e -
tate quit looking like a good way to make a fast buck
And it was the Wall Street speculators more than e
supply and demand factor whose antics were pr3iari-
ly responsible for last summer's outasight gas prices.

The OPEC oil sheiks are hoping to agree on
production cutbacks that will keep the price of petrol
artificially high, but those people are greedy and they
want to sell that black gold. And if they/stay worried
about expanded American oil production, they'll want
to sell as much of the stuff as they can while we're
still buying.

Of course, that's only going to work in our fa-
vor if we go through with expanding production here
at home. With the recent drop in the price of gas, all of
a sudden this doesn't seem to be such a big issue; but
if we don't stay serious about accessing our own
petrol supplies, the high prices will be back and they'll
be higher than ever. And if that happens, the price of
consumer goods will take off like a striped a... .Well,-
let's just say they'll increase rapidly

The unfortunate result of spiraling petrol
prices will be inflation at a time when the economic
situation is not good, unemployment is up and the
housing market is mostly about foreclosures. To keep
this from happening, we need leadership that will get
serious about accessing our own petrol supplies, build-
ing new refineries, windmill farms in Senator
Kenniedy's back yard and increasing the use of nu-
clear power to generate electricity; but for the time be-
ing, the most important move has to be accessing our
own domestic and coastal oil reserves and getting that
project in motion without further delay.

Next Tuesday, you can vote for flowery rhetoric
and pie-in-the-sky promises, or you can get serious
and vote for a team that's prepared to deal with real
problems. I'm sure you know who I'm talking about. In
any event, it's your choice.

Time for some soul food


I don't know about you, but I am up to here with politics.
I've had enough. I'm tired of listening to the predictions of
upcoming Republican doom and I'm horrified at comtem-
plating a possible sequel titled "The Jimmy Carter Years
2.0, starring Barack Obama as The:President." I want to
think about something else. I tried getting excited about
Halloween (normally my favorite holiday), but it's just not
doing it for me this year. My asthma is going crazy and I'm
wheezing in my sleep, which is keeping me up and making
me very cranky I was getting mentally overwhelmed at
work with all of the ads and work piling up, and appraisal
projects on my desk I need to get done. I've
been working all day, and then coming home
to work all evening. It's been too much! So, I H
went on strike. I took a few days just to stay
home, play with the kids, arid to do all of athe6
those things that I never seem to have time to
do anymore.

I did enough laundry so that the kids don't
have to run naked. (Katie, at least, seems de- t
termined to run naked, anyway.) I did dishes.
I mopped until I ran out of Swiffer juice. I if he bi
built one of those neat muscle-relaxing bags
that you warm up in the microwave. Instead
of rice,'I filled mine with apple-flavored deer
corn; trust me, it's the way to go. The corn
has more mass, and therefore stays warm
longer, and the apple smell is heavenly. I
worked on knitting another pair of socks. (Oh, by the way, I
did finish my last ones...I put a picture up on my Myspace
page, if you're interested. Yes, I know the yarn color is
ugly....but it was on sale! Half price! Half price is never
ugly.)
I let the-kids play outside all day I bought stuff to make
candy apples. The little cousins came over to spend the
night. (That's five kids pnder the age of nine, if you're
keeping count.) We threw the leftover deer corn to the pi-
geon..yes, pigeon...that has showed up and is living in my
barn. He's very friendly and likes to sit on the roof of the
house and watch us watch him. He has a leg-band, so if you
know anybody who is missing a pigeon, call me.

But maybe most importantly, I cooked. It seems like the
kids and I have been living off of frozen pizza, microwave
dinners and various "Helpers" of one sort or another for '
months. I'm always working late, or there's a meeting, or we
have to do our walking for Dixie Walks...there's always some-

Mothers. don't let your children go into the Shired
Island Hunting Club Area.There are drunk men with guns
in there.The reason I know this is I had the privilege of
spending the day enjoying the fishing ponds and nature at
its best in the Shired Island Hunting Club area.I was really
disappointed at all.the trash around the pits,for that matter
everywhere we went,beer cans and bottles were just tossed
out My daughter and I spent most of our time cleaning up
around us.Can collectors could get rich picking up the
hunting club.Idon't know the president of SIHC or I would
personally call him and suggest he roimd up all the mem-
bers for a clean up day.IT will take more than one day I'M
sure. If you have to drink beer while hunting,then load up
your trash and take it with you There is a dumpster just
down the road.

Thank You
We the people of District #1 would like to take this opportu-
nity to thank our County Commissioner Buddy Lamb fr his
dedication and hard work. He is prompt to handle any prob-'
lems that may occur, all you need to do is contact him. He has
been keeping District #1 clean and growing. We are looking
forward to more urban growth in our district. He had the
beautiful boat ramp and park built at Turner Point, and he
makes sure the grounds stay well maintained. Our communi-
ty center is well kept and open for all of us to use. The new
EMS building is in'a 'great central location for our district.
The roads in our area are well maintained and kept clean.
Great job Buddy, we are looking forward to having you with
us next term.

Thank you,
The People of District One
America at the Crossroads
America has faced a great many perils in its 232 year history,
however, our beloved country is now facing an imminent dan-
ger the likes of which it has never faced before. With the ex-
ception of the Jihadist attack on the WTC in 2001, most of
America's enemies have been uniformed, identifiable, sol-
diers.
The immediate threat to our nation comes in the form of an
individual who may very well become the next president of
the U.S., Barack Obama. While John McCain falls short in of-
fering true conservatives all those qualifications they might
desire in a presidential candidate, he certainly is head &
shoulders above B.O. McCain is solidly pro-lifem while B.O. is
the most anti-life candidate who has ever run for the presi-
dency He promised Planned Parenthood that his first order of
business as president would be to sign the Freedom of Choice
Act. This act would make abortion a national law, which it is
not now, & would overthrow all restraints & limitations now
in existence.
Make no mistake about it, the judgement hand of God is
upon America for its commitment to abortion. Multiplied
millions of innocent unborn babies have been sacrificed on
this heathen altar. B.O. is fully committed to expanding abor-
tion throughout America.
God-fearing Americans should do all in their power to op-
pose & defeat this most heathen practice. Read what hap-
pened to King Manasseh of Judah in 2 Chronicles 33 & Jere-
miah 7:29-31, God never commanded child sacrifice. Pray fer-
vently for America.

thing that keeps me from getting home and having time to
cook real food. There's only so long a person can live on
that sort of thing without having a stomach mutiny It's edi-
ble, and fairly nourishing, I guess, but it's just not....fulfill-
ing. Eating that stuff on a constant basis keeps you from be-
ing hungry, but it leaves you empty

So, I dug the Le Crueset pots that were mama's, and made
dinner every night. Nothing fancy, really: some spaghetti,
chicken and yellow rice, a pot roast with all the trim-
mings....home-cooked comfort food, I suppose. And it was:
comforting, I mean. I feel much better. The kids ate better.
The critters loved the leftovers. I think maybe I can face an-
other work-week of "instant" gro-
.. a, ..< series now.


W U ui ap and

st: Serve him

a fine meal,

:hen ask him

believes there

is a cook.
--unknown


My daughter Casey always swore that
she was not going to learn to cook as
long as there were restaurants. It's
funny how her tune changed after a
few months y at school. I started
getting phone calls about how to cook
cube steak, or how to make mushroom
gravy, and even emails on Facebook
from her friend Justin Cotman (hey, .
fatbaby!) who wanted my spaghetti
recipe. She had eaten enough Ramen
noodles, Sushi and Domino's. She
craved real food.


There's this great book called Julie
and Julia about a woman who decides during a stressful
time of her life to spend a year cooking every single recipe
from Julia Child's French cookbook. It worked for her, and
she got a book out of it. Apparently I'm not the only one
who finds solace in the kitchen. So why aren't kids learning
to cook anymore?

I guess it's for the same reason that I can't find time to cook
a real meal during the week; everybody is just too busy.
Moms and dads are working all day, and then taking the kids
to soccer practice or whatever...it's no surprise that most
kids think that food comes out of drive-through windows.
That kind of quick food may feed the stomach, but it starves
the soul. So, here's your call to action this week for when
the news and the economy is getting you down: turn off the
television, put on an apron, and cook your family dinner.
Not out of .a box, real dinner. Cook a chunk of meat. Cook
some collard greens. Make biscuits or cracklin' cornbread
from scratch. Eat your vegetables. Sit at the table. Talk to
your kids. You'll feel better, I promise.


Letter to the Editor


To all the voters in Dixie County, especially those who have
and love their pets. We with the Humane Society, and the
Dixie County Voters Union have been convinced for some
time that the County Commissioners have no intention of
contracting animal control to the Huf'nane Society! Rather
than just declare this opinion to the voters, we wanted to
demonstrate that they were saying they .were fore us, while
acting against us! It appears that they wanted to keep post-
poning any action until after Nov. 4th. To find their true in-
tentions I pushed for a contract now!

In their anger they blurted it out, from the horse's mouth,
and quoted in the headlines of both newspapers! The Coun-
ty Commissioners reject the Humane Society's request for
animal control!

For any hope of a no-kill policy we must vote out these in-
cumbents! On your way to vote, stop by the dog pound and
see if you can see a need for change. I ask you to support
Mr. Higginbotham, and Mr. Edmonds!

Respectfully,
Pamela Swanson
President D.C.V.U
Old Town, FL

RE: -To all the critics of "my opinion" article in a recent
Dixie County Advocate edition.

You can make all the excuses you Want about why and
when these businesses are closed. They are still symbolic of
the near depression that our County is in. As long as we are
near the bottom in per-capita income, and bear the stigma
of one of the poorest Counties in the state, I will always ad-
vocate the removal of the incumbents, and I don't care how
much time they do or don't spend in Tallahassee, asking
for federal and state grants, or other subsidies. I believe we
can do better than this! We must do better, because I believe
these freebies are going to dry up! If we are not self-sustain-
ing [economicly] as a county, then I am afraid we are look-
ing at some hard times!! We need creative leadership!

Again I say -lets throw them out!!

With respect,
John Bowwell
VP.---D.C.V.U

On the afternoon of 10/21/2008, two observant citizens no-
ticed Blevins at a residence and felt certain that Blevins had
no reason to be on the property. From this location in the
Holly Hammock Subdivision, they followed Blevins to proper-
ty in the Skyline Heights Subdivision and reported his activi-
ty to the Sheriff's Office. Deputies were dispatched to the lo-
cation in the Holly Hammock and to the location in the Sky-
line Heights where Blevins had traveled. The deputy re-
sponding to the location in the Holly Hammock, discovered
that a shed on this property had been burglarized and the
pump to the water system had been taken along with damage
to the system during the theft.
Deputies later located Blevins and after during their investi-
gation learned the location of the pump. Blevins was arrest-
ed for Burglary, Grand Theft and Criminal Mischief and
transported to the Dixie County Jail.

Sheriff's Office Participates

in Red Ribbon, Week

Supplies Distributed to School

Dixie County, Florida- The students attending Schools in Dix-
ie County recently received a visit from the Dixie County
Sheriff's Office with supplies to be used to remind students ,
to Say No to Drugs. This visit is planned every year in honor
of Red Ribbon Week.

Red Ribbon Week now in its 20th year of national obser-
vance was launched in 1988 by the National Family Partner-
ship as a grassroots campaign to encourage kids and commu-
nities to stay drug free and to uphold a standard for Ameri-
cans everywhere. The movement was inaugurated after the
tragic death of Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)
agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena, who was kidnapped, tor-
tured and killed by Mexican drug traffickers after successful-
ly disrupting a major narcotics operation.

To celebrate the Dixie County Sheriff's Office involvement in
keeping students drug-free, the Sheriff's Office provided ban-
ners for the schools, backpack with an anti drug message,
pencils, stickers and other supplies reminding the students
that there are other things to chose to be "cool" other than
drugs.

Sheriff Hatcher said, "This is the perfect opportunity to re-
mind students, teachers and parents of the need to remain
drug free. It is the goal of the Sheriff's Office to continue to
fight illegal drugs using all types of avenues, from enforce-
.ment, prevention and education. I thank the School System
for allowing us to partner with them."

Dixie County, Florida The Dixie County Sheriff's Of-
fice in cooperation with the Dixie District Schools com-
pleted the first class for the newly established Teen Dri-
ver Challenge. The event was held at the Dixie County
High School and the Dixie County Transportation Fa-
cility located in Cross City
In the classroom students participated in a four-hour
session that covered
the topics of teen crash facts, knowing your vehicle, us-
ing your senses, vehicle dynamics, safe driving habits,
alcohol and driving, aggressive driving and driving ex-
ercises.
On the driving range students participated in an eight-
hour session that covered vehicle operations. The dri-
ving range covered the following exercises figure 8,
threshold/emergency braking, backing, cornering, for-
ward serpentine, reverse serpentine, off road recovery
and evasive maneuvers.
The participants in the program had fun on the driving
range. Ashley Osteen said, "I loved the class and really
like the instructors. I learned how my car will react
while taking evasive action. I had fun and learned a lot
during my time. I would recommend the class to every-
one."
The Sheriff's Office is currently taking applications for
the next Teen Driver Challenge Program. For more in-
formation, please visit the School Resource Deputy at
the High School, the Dixie County Sheriff's Office in
the Court House or the website at www.dixiecountysh-

The Trojans fail to hang 6n 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 begins with Keen
handing off to Scott for a long sprint to
the end zone, but the TD is called back
for holding in the backfield. The Tro-

Dear Dixie County Citizens,,
As the election nears, I would like to take this opportunity to ask for your vote and support on
November 4th. I am seeking the office of Tax Collector because I enjoy serving YOU, the citizens
of Dixie County and feel that my qualifications prepare me for the responsibilities of being your
Tax Collector. I would like to give you three reasons why you should put your trust in me by vot-
ing for and electing me to serve as your next Tax Collector.
The first reason is my experience. I began working in the Tax Collector's'office in 1996 with Mrs.
Idelle Hatcher then continued with Mrs. Joyce Davis for a total of 8 years. During that time I
served as the tag and title supervisor and the supervisor of the former Old Town Branch Office.
Working in the office for 8 years gave me the opportunity to work in all areas of the office. My
experience and knowledge of the duties of the Tax Collector's office gives me a deeper under-
standing of the responsibilities that comes with being tax collector. These are responsibilities that
I am ready to assume and excel in.
The second reason is my education. I received my AA degree from Lake City Community College.
My AA degree classes were focused on Business Administration. While working in the Tax
Collector's office I feel those college level courses helped me to better perform my duties. Also,
while working at the office I attended many workshops and courses offered by the Dept. of Rev-
enue and the Dept. of Motor Vehicles. In fact, if elected I'm only three weeks away from
becoming a Certified Florida Collector. A few years ago my husband and I made a decision for
me to stay at home with our small children. While I was staying home duringthe day, I returned
to college at night and completed my Bachelor's Degree from St. Leo University graduating with
the highest ofhonors, Summa Cum Laude.
The third reason is my ability to manage and operate the tax collectors office in a professional and
efficient manner. I will make sure my staff is properly trained so that you can trust that your
personal transactions are being completed correctly. And the most important thing that I will do
as your tax collector is offer courteous customer service. I know what I expect when I walk into
any office or place of business and that is to be treated in a respectful and friendly manner. If
elected customer service, YOU, will always be my top priority. My views on this stems from my
parents teaching me to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. This is a rule that I
have always lived by and will continue in life and in business.
In closing, I just want to say that my heart has always been in Dixie County. Dixie County has
been my home for the past 30 years, now my husband and I are raising our two daughters here.
It is my desire to take an active role in our community and to serve as your Tax Collector.
Running for tax collector has been a dream of mine that I have thought and prayed about for
many years so I'm very excited about this opportunity. Now, I sincerely ask that you consider my
experience, education and ability and put your trust in me by voting for and electing me, Michelle
Fowler Cannon to serve YOU as your next Tax Collector. If you have any questions or'concerns
please feel free to call me at 352-498-5437.
Sincerely,
\j'e~ c' we^ft~~

Rain? What Rain?
Volunteers for the Stein-
hatchee River Coastal
Cleanup did not let the damp
weather put a damper on
their enthusiasm last Satur-
day. Over thirty volunteers.
came out to "Keep Stein-
hatchee Beautiful." Both the
roads and the river were the
targets.
Mother Nature provided a
cool overcast morning albeit
a bit wet. Taylor County Sol-
id Waste Department provid-
ed a dumpster for the picked
up items. Hungry Howie's
provided delicious pizza. Ann
Boy organized the "food and
drink" department. Ronnie
Hill and Jimmy Mason used
their trucks for picking up
the bags and trash collected
by the workers. And most
important of all: the volun-
teers who walked the roads,
got into boats and cleaned the
banks of the river and gener-
ally made our town a nicer
place to call our home.
Students who participated in-
cluded Rodrigo and Jennifer
Martinez, Crissie Mason and
Jena Gibson. Their leader
was Patricia Hurd, a teacher
at Steinhatchee School. They
cleaned the Bridge road ar-
eas. Megan Huyck, another
student, worked with Jeanne
Black and cleaned the river-
bank west of the bridge.
Several couples worked to-
gether on cleaning other
parts of the river. They in-
clude: Charlotte and Don
Gambel, Stan and Jean
Ridgeway, Mary and Julius
Cooey, Bonnie Heaton and
Allen Fink, and Peggy and
John Glass.
Freddie Love Hires worked
Riverside Drive for the Gar-
den Club. Judy Gantenbein,
Char Chauncey and Sue Pol-
hemus worked Hwy 51 from
,.Cooey's Island to Tri County
Electric'fof AARP. Jack-
sonville residents and week-
end Steinhatchians, Jane
Feber and Tee Bayley worked
6th, 7th and 8th Streets.
Last Thursday Gail Bartlett
and Susan Curtis worked
School House Road from Ma-
son's to, 6th Street. Bob
Emery came by and took
their 120 pounds of trash to
the dump. Such a nice ges-
ture!
Next year you might like to
volunteer your morning to
have a good time with friends
as you work to beautify your
environment. Cleaning the
water saves the wildlife too.
It is a lot like voting, if you
don't do it, don't complain!

Dixie County a POSITIVE CHANGE and cuts in the budget. He is the only candidate that has demonstrated a true concern for the people of Dixie County and they
deserve nothing less.
David will take immediate and obvious steps as soon as he takes office, to let the people know that he is keeping his word to make the changes necessary for a
more effective and efficiently run office.

the people and taxpayers is SAVINGS. His first task is to save a minimum of $100,000 the first year and more if possible. This should be an eye opener for taxpay-

IT'S TIME FOR A


CHANGE ,

The citizens of Dixie County are my primary
concern. Your wefl being and safety will be the ..
essence of my focus. Therefore it is my mis-
sion, and the mission of the Dixie County
Sheriffs Office to enhance the quality of your
life by reducing both crime and the fear of
crime throughout Dixie County.

It is my goal to have the Dixie County Sheriffs
Office provide the highest level of service to
the citizens of the county. Furthermore, it is
my responsibility to look outside of the box where it pertains to the typical reactive law
enforcement role, to protect and serve. I will be the extension of you, your ideas, values
and suggestions as citizens of Dixie County. In this role, the members of the Dixie Coun-
ty Sheriffs Office will improve the quality of life for you, your family, and visitors alike.

As a public service agency, we will streamline and remove barriers that are typical of in-
accessible bureaucracies. My door will always be open to you. I will work with the com-
munity in obtaining.assistance and resources from other agencies both public and pri-
vate. We shall provide a public service, and through that endeavor, establish the Sheriffs
Office as a facilitator for quality of life uses- not just as providers of basic law enforce-
ment service. I will be resourceful, imaginative and aggressive in my approach to crime
and by doing so, encourage the public to become an involved partner.

As your Sheriff, I will be dedicated to a safe community through. professional law en-
forcement. I personally welcome your input and insight on what your needs are as a
community and your suggestions on how we can best serve those needs. If you would
like to share information on a crime, neighborhood problem, or any other matter that
you feel requires law enforcement attention, you will be able to contact me in person at
anytime to discuss these issues.

As your Sheriff, every effort will be made to be cost effective in the day-to-day operations
of the Sheriffs department and the jail. The current administration including the Sher-
iffs pay is at an all time high and is "top heavy", I will do everything in my power as your
Sheriff to eliminate this situation and therefore allow for more street patrol units to be
assigned to serve and protect the citizens of Dixie County.

Let my 17 V2 years of Hands on Experience
and Knowledge work for you,
On November 4TH Vote For and Elect Richard Baker
For Dixie County Sheriff

Rotary Student Guests


The Dixie County Rotary Club Student Guests for the
month of October were Taylor Corbin, daughter of Jeff and
Julie Corbin, Kristen Ellison, daughter of Richard and
Shannon EUison and Nicole Papale, .daughter of Linda and
Rosario Papale. The Rotary Club invites senior students
from the Dixie County High School to attend weekly meet-
ings and learn about this community service organization.

At the October 15th meeting the students gave a speech
which will qualify them to earn a Rotary scholarship. Tay-
lor, who plans to attend college and become an occupational
therapist, gave her speech on "Leadership." Kristen, who
plans to attend UF or Santa Fe Community College and ma-
jor in Occupational Therapy, told about "What BETA Club
means to me." Nicole, who plans to attend the University of
Florida and become a surgeon, spoke on "Transposition of
the Greater Arteries." The Dixie County Rotary Club
would like to thank the students for their interest in Rotary
and their community.


are often implemented on
new versions of the prod-
uct. Thus, an inventor
creates a product, people
like it, people improve it,
and the future versions of
the product are even bet-
ter tailored to their target
market. All this at a mini-
mal cost to the creator.

Getting back to the
whole lack-of-a-patent
thing... As you may or
may not know, many
manufacturers have lots
of nifty toys with which
to "reverse engineer"
your invention. When
your product hits the
market, there is a chance
that another company
will buy one, analyze it,
and then build a million
of them cheaper than you
can. This can happen
even if the schematics
are a carefully guarded
secret. So publishing the
schematics doesn't really
do that much damage. If
Unscrupulous, Inc. wants
to rip off your invention,
they'll do it. So, in light of
that, go ahead and let
them have. the informa-
tion that they'll get any-
way, and take advantage
of all the free help that
you'll get from the legions,
of techno-geeks and hard-
ware hackers.

new one, or repair the old
one at a fee. I'll not men-
tion any names. With
Open Source hardware,
the manufacturer is less
likely to receive a re-
turned invention for re-
pair. This is due to the
schematics and other in-
formation begin readily
available to the end-user.
This could be the begin-
ning of another era of
DIY repairs. Since you
have the diagrams, you
can fix it yourself,or find
another geek who can.
Also, as they are not look-
ing for the revenue that a
repairs department
would generate, the pro-
ducer is more inclined to
make the unit more
durable, even (gasp) user-
repairable. You know, like
in the old days, when
your radio broke, you
could find the burnt-out
tube and replace it. Or,
like in the slightly-less
old days, when the color
on your TV Went wacky,
you could take the back
off of it and adjust the
yoke. That, of course, was
well before the modern
practice of "bonding"
(breaking, really) the
yoke on your television's
picture tube.

Open Source products tend
to be .cost-effective. They're
easily-tailored to your needs,
and just all-around cool.
Don't take my word for it
though, just Google "Open
Source Hardware" and see
for yourself, and remember
stay. Open-minded.

My Statement to You 1

"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 tobring 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 Sheriffs 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
$3,000 duringthe course of the year. What I am trylgto sayto you is that lam committed to doing a quality job for you, regard-
less of the pay! 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 I"

'Administrative costs and personnel associated with your Sheriffs Dept have risen at an alarming rate and add nothing to the bottom line of havingdeputies
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
A 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 fcr an economical operation."

THE SAFETY OF YOUR FAMILY AND FUTURE GENERATIONS IS AT STAKE. PLEASE TAKE THE TIME
TO UNDERSTAND THE ISSUESAND THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS ELECTION. OUR COUNTY IS AT THE
CROSSROAD OF CHOOSING A COURSE FOR THE FUTURE I WIL PUT FORTH THE EFFORT TO IN'
SURE IMPARTIAL LAW ENFORCEMENT. I WILL GUARD THE SAFETY OF THIS COUNTY THE SAME AS
GUARD THE SAFETY OF MY FAMILY. YOU HAVE MY WORD ON IT!

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

First Baptist of Steinhatchee News

We had Victory Sunday with Pastor Jim Fellure,
director of the Victory Baptist Press at Milton Flori-
da. They print Bibles in 9 languages. They are dis-
tributed to 34 countries throughout the world and in
every state in the United States. Over half of the
world has never seen or heard of a Bible, over 3 bil-
lion people! But by printing the Bible in their lan-
guages, GOD'S WORD can be spread to other coun-
tries. The average cost of one roll of paper is $1,
000.00! A whole load of paper can cost $31,000.00! But
we can all help to print these Bibles! The cost of a
Bible is about 25 cents! Could you help? Yes, please
pray about it. One bag of potato chips could cost
$3.00, that could print 12 Bibles, or carton of cokes
could print 15 Bibles, money America spent on can-
dy last week could have purchased thousands of
Bibles! We serve GOD by sharing HIS WORD!

* Our special prayers go out to the Jim and Mary
Fellure family, Bill Lawson, Chris Holden, Billy
Houck, Bryant Morgan, Mamie Lou Futch, Dorothy
Wood, Gwen and Mile Altman, Billy Blakely as he re-
turn to Iraq, the unspoken, all those on our church
prayer list read on Wednesdays, and our coming elec-
tion, please vote GOD'S way!

What a treat to hear Fred Mitchell play his banjo
and singing "Would You Pray For Me", assisting him
with his guitar was Leon Holden 111! Fred is an-
swered prayer, after an elevator accident over a year
ago! Also singing; "Wipe The Dust Off The Bible" was
Harry Gatlin. Thank you guys!!

* Last week in Awanna, the Sparks club had "crazy
hair" night! Everyone who dressed up, got a prize. In
TNT the clubber who says the most Bible verses will
be rewarded with a special prize.And our Cubbies
had a great "pizza blast"! Kids come on out to Awan-
na on Wednesdays! You will have an awesome time!
Parents remember... if our children are to find their
way to GOD, we must point the way! Many prayers,
blessings, hugs and smiles! Sandy Coleman '

NEW PROSPECT BAPTIST
NEWS

From all reports, everyone really enjoyed our Fall
Festival down at the Brannin Camp Saturday
evening, with plenty of fun and good food. We really
appreciate Bro. Robert, Sis. Pam, Tracey, and Kelly
for hosting this spectacular event for our enjoyment.
Sunday morning, it was good to be back in church as
our choir and musicians did such an outstanding job
praising our Heavenly Father in song, and Bro. Billy
was no less inspiring as he delivered God's messages
from John 10:10.

On Saturday, November 1st at 5:00 P. M., the wedding
of Mr. Gene VanAernam and Ms. Shirley Cooper will
be held in the NPBC annex. On Saturday night, don't
forget to set your clocks back an hour, as Daylight
Savings time ends early Sunday morning, and Tues-
day, Nov. 4th, don't forget to vote!

Enjoy the cooler autumn days and, as you go about
your daily life, encourage those you meet to visit with
us at New Prospect. It was good to have visitors
again Sunday, as always. Have a good week, and
please keep your prayers going for all those on the
prayer lists, our President, our military personnel,
and the upcoming election. May God bless and keep
you safe.

School and our Homecoming service. /
Next Sunday, Nov. 2nd, will be our homecoming ser-

coming message, followed by lunch in the fellowship
hall. Bring your favorite covered dish and join in the
lunch and sweet fellowship. The special music will be
done by Southland. Some have asked if we will have
church again that night and Bro. Jackie announced
that there will be church. Some will be there and oth-
ers will not, but if you wish to attend there will be
services that night. The AWANAS will meet at 6:00
PM as usual.
Remember this week to pray for-the sick, the; travel-
ers, the ones who are cold and indifferent about our
church's welfare and especially pray for the lost. Call
someone who wasn't there this week, tell them you
missed them and invite them back next week.
Until we meet again, may God keep you happy,
healthy and'safe.

Open letter to the Citizens of Dixie County


: Dear Citizens,


1 would like to take this Opportunity to thank you for allowing me to serve you for the
past eight years. During .these years, I have worked hard to uphold the confidence and
trust placed in me by representing you with honor, integrity, and professionalism.
Since the start of this campaign and especially with the recent events here in Dixie
County involving former County officials, there is a flood of unfounded rumors and mali-
cious lies being circulated about me and my family. I have not been. nor am I going to
be arrested. indicted, or am I in any way involved in the ongoing legal proceedings in
our county. Rather than giving credibility to these lies, please examine the work I have
done for Dixie County/and the things I have helped bring to you and your families for
the betterment of our county. I have the knowledge and leadership skills to help pull
'Dixie County through tihe tough times we are now facing.
If allowed, I will continue to represent all of Dixie County with the same hard work, hon-
or and enthusiasm I have done for the past 8 years. I will continue to work hard to bring
honor to my county, my friends, and my family.

T: hank you,
Buddy Lamb,
County Commissioner District 1

SPRINGHOUSE
QUILTER'S
NEWS

Springhouse members
have started planning for
their 2009 quilt show.
Hopefully, the show will
be a community event for
early fall and will feature
many of the quilts made
over the last 2 years En-
tries are always accepted
from other quilters in the
area to give the show
some added variety This
will be a judged show;
however, this does not
mean that quilters are ac-
tually competing against
each other. The purpose
of judging is to learn new
ideas and techniques
that will eventually make
the person a better quil-
ter. The judge will eventu-
ally select the best con-
structed quilts to be
awarded ribbons.

In Closing


J. Hal Chewning, Jr.
P.O. Box 501
Cross City, FL 32628

' ,Dear Friends,
I come before you and ask for your vote, one last time... but not for me.
'Y', My request is that you vote for Robbie Lee as our next Dixie County Property
Appraiser. J.,-
A few years after I became Property Appraiser, I recruited Robbie to
t,,.., work for me. He agreed, and even took a rather severe pay cut to become a
A', Deputy Appraiser. That in itself shows that his heart is in public service, as
many of you already know.
done I know how vital it is that the Property Appraiser's job gets done, and
done in such a manner that the tax paying citizens are well served. The
SY. Property Appraiser is the only person standing between the tax payer and
4!} the people in Tallahassee who would have your taxes raised drastically.
'. Robbie has stood with me against those Tallahassee bureaucrats for over 10
^'=. years. He not only knows how to fight the battles that will certainly come, he ',
knows how to win, in order to better serve you, the taxpayer.
Let's keep the advantage we now enjoy by allowing Robbie to continue
the fight for us. Take it from one who has fought the battle for 13 years...we
cannot afford to do otherwise.
7,, Please join me and let's elect Robbie Lee for Dixie County Property
Q'-; Appraiser. He truly is the right man for the job.
,r'.Yours tr ,
