Home Destroyed : Cat saved


n Sunday, November 23, 2008
just before 2:00 P.M. Dixie
County'EMS responded to a
house fire on NE 694th
Street, which is off of 351, near
where it intersects 349. When they
arrived they found the home to be a
raging inferno. Relatives of the
homeowner, who lived next door,
were on the scene trying to combat
the blazewith a garden hose. As
you can see in the accompanying
photos, the house is very much'the
worse for wear. A poor little cat, ap-
parently belonging to the house-
hold, seemed to be a bit frightened
by all of the firefighters and flash-
ing lights. It decided to try to seek
refuge in the house, which must
have looked perfectly safe to it. For-
tunately a vigilant emergency
worker who wishes to remain
anonymous (see inset at left) pre-
vented the cat's entry, saving it
from certain immolation. The kitty
was not to be dissuaded so easily,
however, and at the first opportuni-

To subscrih Ill,

On Saturday, November 22, 2008 bikers once
again flocked from miles around to gather in
Chiefland at Bell's Restaurant for the annual
Toys for Tots charity run. Just like last
year's event, the ride ended at Charlie's Bar,
right here in Dixie. These-folks braved the
biting cold weather on their motorcycles to
help support the Toys for Tots program,
which helps bring Christmas magic to many
of the less-fortunate children in our area.
Quite a few people turned up this year for
the noble cause. Keep up the good work
guys!

Former DCSO Deputy arrested


by Eli Loy
Former Dixie County Sher-
iffs Deputy, Mark Garcia,
who is currently working
with the Levy County Sher-
iff's Department. was
placed under arrest on No-'
vember 18 on charges of
criminal mischief. Accord-
ing to the Dixie County
Sheriffs Department on Oc-
tober 17, 2008. Garcia had
been drinking, and accord-
ing to persons in whose
company he'd been in was
allegedly quite drunk. He
had asked James "Buddy"
Smith to give him a ride to
his house in Levy County.
'On the way he asked Mr.
Smith to stop at various
bars to locate one Melanie,
who he said had his keys
'and his wallet. After a
sweep of the bars, Garcia
stated to Mr. Smith that he
knew her'to.be at the house
'of a Mr. Snellgrove, and re-
quested to be taken there.
Arriving at the house that
Mark Garcia had indicated,
Mr. Smith states that he
parked outside of a locked
gate outside of the property,
and pointed his headlights
at the home so as to provide
light. At this point, Garcia
requested to use Mr. Smith's
flashlight. Mr. Smith stated
that he saw the flashlight
move about he property, but
didn't think anything was
wrong, he was in the truck
listening to the radio.
When Mark Garcia re-
turned to the vehicle he told


Mr. Smith that he "...would-
n't have to worry about that
dope dealer." and that he,
"...took care of him." While
records maintained at the
Florida Department of Cor-
rections show that one Cur-
tis Snellgrove is on drug of-
fender probation for charges
related to the sale or manu-
facture of methainpheta.
mine, no evidence has at
- this time is available pro-
vide any veracity to the
statements allegedly made
by Garcia.
Smith asked Garcia what he
had done. To which Garcia
laughed and replied that he
had torn up the washing
machine and the dryer, and
that he'd'turned on a water
hose and placed it in the
dwelling.
When police investigated
the scene of the crime, it
was found that the waterline
on the pump had been bro-
ken, the satellite dish had
been pointed straight up-
wards, the security system
had been tampered with, a
rock had been thrown
through a window in the liv-
ing room, another had been
thrownagainst the back
door, causing damage, and a
picnic table, along with
various other outdoor furni-
ture had been overturned.
Garcia turned himself in
when a warrant was issued
for his arrest. He was re-
,leased on his own recog-
nizance.


Decorating Dixie










' A sign painter by trade, Gene Rondeau, with the help of
Dori Miller, has been drumming up a little extra Christmas
funding and beautifying our community at the same time.
If you have driven recently through Cross City you may
have noticed the festive array of wonderfully painted win-
dows that many local businesses are sporting. Well, we can
thank Mr. Rondeau for helping to bring in the holiday sea-
son with style.
While he enjoys painting wreaths and poinsettias very
much, he is open to suggestions and loves to paint whatever
a customer would like upon their storefronts. Each of his
creations are unique, not stenciled, an individual work of
art. A Chiefland resident, he paints pretty much every-
where within a 50 mile radius of there. If you would like to
get in touch with Mr. Rondeau, you can call him at his busi-
ness, Signs by Gene, at (888) 490-7782. I'm sure he'd love to
hear from you.

I am not'a turkey


by Kathy McKinney

Well, that's something to be thankful for, I suppose. With the
stock market diving, unemployment numbers skyrocketing,
and the ongoing chaos that is my life as a singleparent with
three little kids, I've fallen into a sort of doom-and-gloom
way of thinking lately I'm half-sick, with that cough that
everybody seems to have, and it makes me cranky I have a
nasty swollen bruise on the top of my left foot. My checking
account balance is laughable. My dishwasher is acting .
squirrelly. I have lots to complain about. But, hey, at least
I'm not sitting on a Butterball farm, waiting to become
Thanksgiving dinner. It could always be
worse. "Givel


And really, no matter how bad things may unju
seem, I have so much to be thankful for. I had unhappines
the great luck to be born in the best country
in the world, and the even greater luck of be- am del
ing raised a small-town southerner. I don't sometimes
have to worry about my children suffering sometimes
from malnutrition or being taken in the mid- by, ho
dle of the night to join the army of some mil-
itant dictator. I can go to the grocery store, I hav
and buy food on totally stocked shelves, and
not worry about dodging rape gangs or being
mugged on.my way home. I can sit down in
any restaurant in town and order.sweet tea,,
and they'll bring all I want, in gigantic glasses full of sweet
iced southern goodness. I sleep in a house with air condi-
tioning and heat. I can say anything I want to say without
worrying that I'll be "disappeared" in the middle of the
night. There are s6o many people in the world right now who
cannot say that. We have it so good, and we forget, how
lucky we are.

I was lucky to be born to my parents. ,My mother made sure
I had.every educational thing she could get her hands on,
and kept me full of collard greens and spaghetti, even
though daddy hated it, and didn't strangle me when I was
an obnoxious teenager. Daddy spent hours cutting out little
paper footprints so that when I woke up on the morning af-
ter the full moon, that I could follow where they led, all over
the house, up to the freezer where an ice cream sundae wait-
ed,, brought by the "good witch" who brings treats from Can-
dyland to all good little girls and boys on the full moon.
(What, the Good Witch didn't visit you? You must not have
been a good little kid like me. ) He told me Sinbad stories
and read "The Yearling" to me. He has bailed me out of bad
situations caused by my own stupidity more times than I
care to count. Oh, yeah, I'm a lucky girl.

I am lucky that I have a sister who has built her life around
our shared schedules so that we can both work, and I can
homeschool, and so that none of our kids have to be in day
care. And lucky she has a husband who works so many
hours that he's never home long enough to get overly irritat-
ed with a house full of munchkins. I can't imagine what my
life would be like now if she didn't live here. (I'm sorry I

think. :D)

I am lucky that I have four healthy, smart, sweet kids. I am
thankful for my three girls, eerie carbon-copy "mini-me's"
who are so serious and focused and yes, weird like me, and
my little boy, Mitchell, who has such a gigantic, gentle heart
and who still isn't embarrassed to snuggle with his mama.

I am lucky beyond imagining to have family and a few good
friends (you know who you are) who put up with my stub-,
bornness, geekiness and my rampant social anxiety disor-
der. They know I am squirmy around hos-
the amount of pitals, funerals, gatherings of more than 2
people, and any sort of public display of

in the world, I work around my strangeness. They put

Dennis Prager Putting out a newspaper is the most fun
I've ever had. Don't get me wrong, there
have-been some bumps in the road, and still are every now
and then...but day in and day out, I can't imagine a better
way to spend my'time than this. I've met so many people
that I wouldn't have (that social anxiety disorder, remem-
ber), and I hope that I've even been able to help a few people.
I am thankful that the paper has had such a great year, and'
that our sales are up a little more every week. I'm thankful
that we have such loyal advertisers and readers.

And really, that is what I'm most thankful for: you. All of
you who read this column, every single person who stops me
in the. grocery store, or on the nature trail, or in the middle
of a parade (Hey, Wes!) to tell me that you are reading, and
that you like it. The lady who brought me the gigantic box
of yarn, just because she read that I was knitting. Scott
"Dude" who came and fixed my heat on a freezing Saturday,
and wouldn't take any money, and just said, "keep writing
those articles." All of you from all over the place...the man
from Tennessee, and the Touchtons who don't live here any-
more, Ms. Thelma Lord, Jim Evans in Tampa, Prince Oliver,
and everyone else who took the time to send me a letter or
an email and tell me to keep writing, that you're interested
in what I have to say, even if you may not agree with me and
think I'm wrong-headed (Gee, thanks, daddy) That's an
amazingly humbling thing...to know that people spend their
precious time listening to my silly rambling. It keeps me go-
ing on those bumpy days, and it's better than any paycheck I
could ever get.

Thank you.


DECEMBER


If you haven't already done so, take a stroll outside and
breathe in some of that fresh crisp fall air. While you are at
it, get your exercise by picking up those broken fallen
branches and raking a few of the gazillion leaves that have
hit the ground. All of the above will jump start a compost
pile ready to nourish your garden come next spring. Trim
off your perennials that got frost bit and discard the cut-
tings so as to avoid the insect pests attracted by the decay-
ing material.

If you have any tropical plants designated out of our zone
8, you need to either waltz them inside to a'warmer climate
or use some type of a protective cover. One of the best high
tech products available is called a FROST BLANKET. This
blanket is made of a semi-permeable material that allows
s. unlight in, keeps.some of the cold air out, and allows your
tree or shrub to breathe as it protects. Nylon tarps and plas-
tics protect only against the wind factor and will actually
suffocate the plant if left over the top of it for more than a
few days at a time.

Here are a few tips about protecting YOUR special plants
(even citrus trees) from a prolonged frost:

1. Watch the weather forecasts closely and then water freely
as close to the actual time of the freeze as possible.

2. Pile mulch, pine needles or even hay around the base of
the tree to create an insulating barrier as well as a way to
retain moisture in preparation for the frost.

3. Citrus and other mature trees can be wrapped with pipe
insulation material to protect their trunks from death, even
though the leaves may get burnt and drop due to the frost.

4. Do NOT fertilize at this time of the year. New growth is
very sensitive and will be vulnerable to cooler weather.

5. Those tiny miniature Christmas lights can give your tree
just enough warmth to save its life if it is possible for you
to reach all of its branches.

6. If you decide to bring that special plant inside, remember
to get it back into the natural sunlight as soon as
possible.Bringing it inside protects it from the cold and
wind, but it needs the sunlight to make energy for its sur-
vival.

Allow me to take this opportunity to extend our best wishes
from our A & K Nursery family to yours this holiday sea-
son. As you take your holiday walks in your garden, dwell
on the positive aspects of life, remember those less fortu-
nate than yourself and be thankful for all we do have.
Happy Holidays to all,

Art, Karen and Grace A & K Nursery Hwyl9 CrossCity,Fl.

"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant:
if we did not sometimes taste of adversity,
prosperity would not be so welcome."

As I see it

By Rodney Barreto,
Chairman
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission

Wildlife needs wild lands and
caring landowners

Most Floridians are aware
of the state's purchase of
the Babcock Ranch Preserve
and know some about its im-
portance for conserving
wildlife. However, the 74,000-
acre is more valuable to
wildlife conservation than
many of us may realize.

A golden web of intercon-
nected public and private
lands, consisting of some-
where in the neighborhood
of 200,000 acres, stretches
through the center of the
state from Sarasota County
east to Lake Okeechobee.
Here, wildlife has a real op-
portunity to flourish, even
in the face of significant hu-
man intervention in the sur-
rounding areas.

On the western end of this
belt, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) and its part-
ner agencies, the National
Resources Cbnservation Ser-
vice (NRCS), the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District and Sarasota Coun-
ty, have forged numerous
conservation partnerships
with private landowners.
The partnerships have creat-
ed a web of wildlife habitat
stretching well, to the west of
the Babcock Ranch Preserve
- into the heart of the Myak-
ka River Basin.

This belt is the cornerstone
for conservation of wildlife
species that live north and
west of Florida's River of
Grass. Importantly, areas of
this size are essential to the
survival of wildlife popula-
tions, because wildlife re-
quires large amounts of con-


tiguous, quality habitat if
native species are to remain
viable and healthy Areas
like this one also provide
resting spots and sustenance
to large numbers of migra-
tory birds funneling
through peninsular Florida
as they travel down the At-
lantic flyway. Passerines in
particular must maintain
high numbers, because the
long, arduous migration
takes a significant toll on
their populations. Only
large habitats can support
the number of birds needed
for species survival.

At the forefront of the
FWC's private-partnership
efforts is the agency's
Landowner Assistance Pro-
gram (LAP). LAP biologists
throughout the state enroll,
fund and work with private
landowners and other agen-
cies and conservation
groups to ensure wildlife
gets the things it needs --
land that is managed proper-
ly for the benefit of wildlife
and people.

One such private cooperator
is Buster Longino, whose
ranch is in eastern Sarasota
County Longino is a well-
known, forward-thinking
agribusiness man and for-
mer Sarasota County Com-
missioner. Of his 8,000
acres, fully half are enrolled
in conservation programs.

At the direction of Longino,
ranch manager Cliff Cod-
dington employs best man-
agement practices for
wildlife that complement the
4,000-acre cattle operation.
Programs in which the
ranch is enrolled include
wetlands mitigation and
restoration programs and a
quail restoration program
that uses prescribed fire to
encourage restoration of na-
tive plant species.

The ranch is also an ap-
proved recipient site for re-
located gopher tortoises.
The forestry management


program, of which Longino
and Coddingtor take great
pride, is based on the natur-
al regeneration of native
pine trees. In addition, the
ranch manager employs best
practices for rangeland
management, and drip irri-
gation is used to conserve
water in the modest orange
grove.

Because of careful planning,
with conservation in mind,
the ranch remains a viable
Economic entity as well as a
safe haven for wildlife popu-
lations of both game and
nongame species. Turkeys,
quail, deer, gopher tortoises
and pine lilies, a rare plant
species, abound. Better yet,
many of Longino's neigh-
bors have enrolled in
landowner assistance pro-
grams with.the FWC and
NRCS. Together, private
and public land managers
are mapping out the future
for wildlife in this state, and
that future looks very
bright.


Dear Editor:

It was brought to our at-
tention just a short
while ago that "Jerry
Prater' who writes your
"Right to the Point" Col-
umn was involved in a
motorcycle accident.
We would like to send
him our wishes for a
speedy recovery We al-
ways have enjoyed
Jerry's column and his
company as well.

Get well soon Jerry

Paul and Pam Johnson,
Old Town.


And I to my motorcycle
Parked like the soul of the junkyard
Restored, a bicycle fleshed
With power, and tore off
Up Highway 106, continually
Drunk on the wind in my mouth,
Wringing the handlebar for speed,
Wild to be wreckage forever.
~James Dickey, "Cherrylog Road"


Here is a turkey recipe that also includes the use of pop-
corn as a stuffing -- imagine that. When I found this recipe,
I thought it was perfect for people like me, who just are not
sure how to tell when poultry is thoroughly cooked, but
not dried out. Give this a try

8 15 lb. turkey
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is best)
1 cup uncooked popcorn (any brand)
Salt/pepper 'to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush turkey well with
melted butter salt, and pepper. Fill cavity with stuffing and
popcorn. Place in baking pan with the neck end toward the
back of the oven.

Listen for the popping sounds. When the turkey's butt
blows the oven door open and the bird flies across the
room, it's done.

Continued from Front Page...another attempt. After
being once again thwarted, no more attempts were
made by the befuddled feline to enter the burning
dwelling.

Fortunately, no one was physically injured in the fire.
This close to the holiday season, though, the loss of a
home is most unfortunate. The cause of the fire is sus-
pected to be a bucket of coals'that were on the porch,
having been recently removed from the home's fire-
place.

Dixie's New County Officials

The Advocate sits down with some of the newly-elected County Officials to talk about their plans and challenges


Starlet Anderson, Supervisor
of Elections

Ms. Anderson is not
new to the Supervisor
of Elections Office.
but was re-elected in
the last election. She
said that she was
very pleased with the
election, overall, and
particularly with the
very high turnoutt.
"Despite the limited
space we have to
"work with in the of-
fice, it went very
smoothly; the maex iu-
mum waiting time for .
any voter was an hou:" She said that she hopes to
expand her available office space in the future to bet-
ter accommodate the increasingly-popular early'voting.
She hopes to continue in her efforts to educate county
residents and children on election laws and changes.
She plans no staff changes. She has been lucky that
budget cuts have not yet hit her office. She says that,
the office is expecting some new election equipment
in 2010, but that details of that would not be available
until after the upcoming December conference.
When asked if Dixie County saw any of the election
problems with fraudulent voter registrations from or-
gahizations like Acorn, she stated that "We've got a
good check and balance systeni here in Florida, and
we had no problems like that here in Dixie." She con-
tinued to say that her staff worked above and beyond
the call of duty this year, sometimes working holi-
days and extra hours to keep the election running
smoothly, and that she was very proud of the results
from that hard work.

Michelle Cannon Fowler,


Tax


Collector
I am so honored to have been elected to serve as your next
Dixie County Tax Collector and I am looking forward to be-
ginning my term on January 6, 2009.
As I prepare to take office, I will be attending a New Tax
Collector Orientation in Tallahassee on December 9th and
10th. This orientation will provide me with valuable infor-
mation that will help me to transition into my role as Tax
Collector.


My main goal for the
Tax Collector's office /
is and will always be
to provide profession-
al and courteous cus-
tomer service. Dur-
ing my campaign, I
had the privilege to
have met and spoke
with so many won-
derful Dixie County
citizens. Through
those conversations I
feel I gained insight
into what the citizens
expect when coming
into the office. I am
committed to work-
ing with my staff to
exceed those expecta-
tions and achieving cus-
tomer service excellence.


Other important aspects of the office that I will be focusing
on is the budget, taxes, records management, policies and
procedures and the management and operation'of the Tax
Collectors office in an efficient manner. By working in the
Tax Collector's office for eight years, I realize my job as Tax
Collector would be impossible without a capable and knowl-
edgeable staff. I will work closely with my staff to promote
a positive work environment and to provide the leadership
necessary to have a successful office.
Thank you for this opportunity and feel free to contact me
with any questions or concerns at 498-5437.


Dana Cannon
Johnson,
Clerk of Court

Although not dressed in her
trademark pink, Ms. Johnson
was wearing her trademark
smile when she sat down with
The Advocate. "My main goal
will be to run the office as effi-
ciently as possible," she said,
while maintaining a friendly
professional environment for
county residents.
She said that the Office's budget is "holding its own," but
that with "the economy the way it is, I can't be sure what
the future holds." In that spirit, her office is part of a
statewide initiative to improve collections. "I'm trying to
get every workstation in the office upgraded with newer
equipment and computers," she stated. In her prior term,
the entire office received badly-needed remodeling. Ms.
Johnson says that she plans no either mnajir changes, but
that she will,strive to maintain an office of which Dixie can
be proud.

Suwannee River Shrine Club Annual Cane Grinding

Continued from Front Page....The cane was then fed .
through a mill (manufactured circa 1910), and the juice was .
collected. The raw cane juice is then filtered and pumped into -: ... ..
two 80 gallon, propane-fired kettles and brought to a boil. i.
While all that juice was being boiled, Leo Blackwood and
Lloyd Landrum were at work skimming any impurities off of'
the surface of the vats. Cooking 80 gallons of cane juice down
into about 10 gallons of purd cane syrup takes about 3 ,/.
hours from the time the kettle comes to a boil. When the
syrup is nearly finished it turns from a pale color to a nice
golden-brown. Near the very end the rendered syrup starts to
"jump" up out of thekettle. These globs of hot sugar can get
quite a ways up out of the kettle, and at about 220 degrees
could cause some pretty bad burns if one is unfortunate'C
enough to gei splashed. ,
Of course, you can't have a cane grinding without lunch. t artswi e harveste sugarcane. 'e cane isa an ces co ect
But food was standing at the ready with all sorts of delicious




enough, but not so thick that it would crystallize. Once the '
viscosity has been verified to be syrupy enough, the freshly
made cane syrup is scooped out of the kettle and placed into
the bottling vat, where it is cooled down to 200 degrees so that i '
the bottler, capper, and labeler can handle it. .
Of course, cane syrup cannot be made without sugar cane.
Many thoughtful people have helped the growing of the cane
along. Junior Kelly, who was tragically killed during a recent ...
home invasion, always helped to plant the cane, donated trac-
tors, trailers, and did everything he. could to'help the yearly iom t e in ejs there an pumped.. ... into a kettle to begin the bioling process.

say that though the loss of Mr. Kelly hurt them greatly, they ...
will continue in his memory to render sugar cane into cane .
syrup. Mr. Kelly wasn't the only one to help the Shriner's
cane operation, Sunnyland, in Sanford, donated the fertilizer
for the crops, and Larry Grant, a watermelon farmer, donated J
an underground irrigation system to water the cane.
Monies made from the sale of this cane syrup goes to help -
the Shrine Club continue to run. Any money left from that is
donated to children's hospitals, last year a sum of $13,100 was .
sent to help the kids. That is quite a chunk of change. -' .
Also on the day's itinerary was the craft sale. Loads of hand .
made jewelry, baked goods, and arts and crafts were on dis- '.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER

Suwannee Water & Sewer District Has Levels of Disinfection
Byproducts Above Drinking Water Standards
Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Al-
though 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 contami-
nants. Testing results we received from samples taken September
2008 and averaged for the past four quarters show that our system
exceeds the standards, or maximum contaminant levels (MCL), for
Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs), which includes Total Tri-
halomethanes (TT'HMs) and Total Halo Acetic Acids (HAA5s). The
standard for TTHM is 80 micrograms per liter and the average lev-
el of TTHMs over the last year was 212.6 micrograms per liter. The
standard for HIAA5s is 60 micrograms per liter and the average lev-
el over the last year was 231.9 micrograms per liter.
What should I do?
Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in ex-
cess 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 halo acetic acids in ex-
cess 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 alternative sources of water foringestion
What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been,
notified immediately.
WInat is being done?
This is what we are doing to lower our DBP levels: On April 7, 2008
the District began distribution of the water from the new Reverse
Osmosis Water Treatment Plant. Most recent testing yielded the
following results; HAA5s 3.3 micrograms per liter, the MCL is 60
micrograms per liter; TTHMs 5.72 micrograms per liter, the MCL
is 80 micrograms per liter. We anticipate that the next set(s) of
samples will continue to indicate very low amounts of TTHMs and
HAA5s and that the sample average will be at or below the MCL
when the samples for the 1st quarter of 2009 are averaged in. The
District will also begin the replacement of the distribution system
in the 4th quarter of 2008.
For more information, please contact: Tony Johns, at: 352-542-7570
Please share this information with all the other people who drink
this water, especially those who may not have received this notice
directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing'hoines,
schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in
a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
This notice is being sent to you by Suwannee Water & Sewer Dis-
trict. State Public Water System TD# 2151140.

New Scouts in Town


Troop 977 is a brand new Girl Scout Troop in Cross City.
We are a combination troop of both Daisy and Brownie Girl
Scouts. We have a total of 39 members; 9 Daisies, 13 Brown-
ies, and 17 Adult Members, 3 of which are the troop leaders.
October was the start of a busy year for our troop. We were
very excited to be starting the first series of Journeys for
the, New Girl Scout Leadership Experience "It's Your'
World, Change It!" Our Daisies started their journey by
planting some lettuce in their very own mini garden. Our
Brownies started their journey by going on a scavenger
hunt and gathering clues to help them learn'the Girl Scout
Law and Promise.

November- We had a pizza party to celebrate Juliette Low's
birthday and earned our first two fun patches; the Pizza
Party Patch & the Juliette Low Birthday Patch. Our Little
Daisies continued caring for their mini-garden and earned
their first award in the Daisy Garden Journey Book; The
Watering Can Award. The watering can award represents
girls being responsible for what they say and do. Our
Brownies also earned their first awardin the Brownie
Quest Journey Book; The Discover Key The Discover Key
is awarded to girls for discovering their special qualities
and talents and the. special qualities and values of their
families.

At our last meeting the Girls earned two more fun patches;
the Thanksgiving Patch and the Community Service Patch.
They each brought in canned food items to be donated to
the less fortunate and enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving
Dinner specially prepared by our very own troop chef, Mrs.
Nancy Kight.

Looking ahead .at December, we have our Investiture and
Rededication Ceremony scheduled. We have a Christmas
Caroling trip planned and a community service project
lined up. Then, we will be getting ready for our cookie
sales, which start in January!!!

a labor force of 9,361,000.
The unemployment rate is
0.4 percentage point higher
than the September rate of
6.6 percent and is up 2.7 per-
centage points from the Oc-
tober 2007 rate. Florida 's
October 2008 unemployment
rate is the highest since De-
cember 1993, which was also
7.0 percent. The state's cur-
rent unemployment rate is
0.5 percentage point higher
than the national unemploy-
ment rate of 6.5 percent.

Florida's annual nonagri-
,cultural employment
growth rate for October 2008
is -1.9 percent. The rate rep-
resents a loss of 156,200,jobs
from October 2007, for a to-
tal employment level of
7,875,800. This is slower
than the national rate for
October which is -0.8 per-
cent. The October 2008 job
growth rate continues the
trend of negative'over-the-
year growth that began in
September 2007, primarily
due to declines in construc-
tion.

"The Agency for Workforce
Innovation and our partners
throughout the workforce
system are reinforcing our
efforts to, provide a wide ar-
ray of programs and spe-
cialized assistance to help
job seekers gain meaningful
employment," said Monesia
T. Brown, Director of the

vation. "One of the many
valuable resources available
is the Employ Florida Mar-
ketplace web site which pro-
vides a powerful online job-
matching tool for both job
seekers and employers. It
provides job seekers with
immediate access to nearly
200,000 job openings ranging
from entry-level to executive
talent."
The state's 24 Regional
Workforce Boards are work-
ing hard to serve the em-
ployment needs of the peo-
ple of their communities by
working closely with local
economic development, edu-
cation, and business part-
ners to help employ Floridi-
ans. To learn more about lo-

DIXIE COUNTY SCHOOLS

CELEBRATE VETERAN'S DAY


Students all around Dixie were honoring and remembering
United States military Veterans on Tuesday, November 11,
2008.
At Anderson Elementary School, students partici-
pated in coloring contests, poster contests, and essay con-
tests all designed to learn more about the brave individuals
who serve our country in wartime and peacetime. Mr. Ken-
neth Baumer offered inspiring remarks to honor our veter-
ans.


At Old Town
Elementary School,
veterans were invited
to an assembly in
which students hon-
ored them with songs
and speeches. The
5th grade class sang
the preamble to the
constitution which is
the very foundation
on which our democ-
racy was formed over
230 years ago. Mr.
Kenneth Baumer also
spoke to OTES stu-
dents.

Ruth Rains
Middle School.stu-
dents hosted many
veterans in a school-


wide assembly in the gym, which included honoring Mr.
Charlie Combs, a prisoner of war during WWII. Mr. David
Osteen, a former RRMS student, was recognized for being
the youngest veteran in attendance. He is now serving his
2nd tour in Iraq. Mr. Mike Cassidy, in uniform, was the
guest speaker and ended with a moving poem about Old
Glory
Dixie

Veteran's
Day and the

Ta o, Veteran's
parade. Un-
der the
leadership
of Mr. Will Garrett, the band provided patriotic music from
each branch of the military Well, done Band!

Students can feel proud of how they honored the
men and women who have served in the Armed Forces.
Thank you, Veterans, for serving us!

Thanksgiving canned food drive. We raised over 1000
canned foods and non-perishable boxed items with the help
of our generous student body and the wonderful patrons
who stocked our canned food drive displays at Hitchcocks
in Old Town and Foodland in Cross City We were able to
put together 15 food baskets full of goodies that included ei-
ther a turkey or ham, potatoes, and a bag of fresh fruit and
greens. All of the surplus food was donated to United
Christian Services.

We wish to give a special thank you to following businesses

those mohawks, doc martins
and studded belts and join
us for a great time!


Band Semi-Final Results


RedIoats bring another "Superior" home to Dixie















On Saturday November 22nd, the Dixie County Marching
Band attended the 11th annual EM.B.C. Statd Semi-Finals,
in Bradenton for the second time in a row.

This alone was a great accomplishment for these young
members. Only 24, 1A high school marching bands in the
state made the grade this year. However always striving to
be better the band wanted more, and left it all on the field.

So at 10a.m. with weather against them at a chilly 40.de-
grees, and the wind gusting to 20 mph. The "Redcoat Regi-
ment" put on a technically flawless, amazing performance,
and left the rest in the hands of the 10 judges they had nev-
er met. The judges agreed and the band acquired the Supe-
rior Rating that had eluded them, with a score of 70.6.

Along with the band the guard had been rated best in class,
and superior all year, but still wanting to be the best gave it
all they had and with one final push accomplishing it with
a'score of 85.5. A Distinguished Rating, the Highest rating
you can achieve.


This was a
great end to
a fantastic
season start-
ing way back
in August.


The "Red-
coat Regi-
ment" knows -r
that this
could have -
never have
been done
without the ...
help of the
entire communityand would like to thank everyone who
has supported them in their endeavor, including:

Irrigation


Having gone to the
Suwannee River Shrine
Club for their shindig,
(see page 16), I found
their irrigation system
very interesting. The sys-
tem was donated by a wa-
termelon farmer by the
name of Larry Grant,
and is highly efficient.

The system feeds water
directly to the plant's
roots. Underground tub-
ing runs through the sug-
arcane patch, with drip-
pers imbedded in the tub-
ing. This greatly-reduces
the amount of water lost
through evaporation. As
the agriculturalist does-
n't have to apply all of
that extra water to com-
pensate for evaporation,
much less water is used.
In times like these, with
our water tables low, sys-
tems like these help to
keep our wells from going
dry.

What's more, the grid-
like system of tubing al-
lows the plants to be wa-
tered more evenly. Other
variations of the system
include a system similar
to hydroponics where
each plant would have its
own feeder hose. When
fed from holding tanks,
fertilizer could even be
applied through the sys-
tem, reducing the amount

Copy Protection

I hate copy protection. It
isn't that I am a avid digi-
tal privateer, either. Heck,
if I want to copy a movie
I seriously doubt a stupid
little line of code would
stop me. What I hate
about copy protection is
that it can sometimes pre-
vent the lawful enjoy-
ment of copyrighted me-
dia.

Here's an example you
may have. seen yourself.
Many people are entirely
baffled by this phenome-
non, and it is pretty com-
mon. Have you ever no-
ticed that certain DVDs
fade from light to dark re-
peatedly while you are
viewing them? Well, I've
seen it numerous times.
When I worked at Radio
Shack I'd had several cus-
tomers return their DVD
players due to the prob-
lem. Back when that
started I personally
looked into why some of
these DVD players were
being returned. It turned


"You Name It, We Lay It"
Concrete foundations, sidewalks, driveways,
block, brick, stone, glass block, fireplaces, etc.


No money needed up front!
Licensed, Insured, W/C
352-486-3133


out that all of the re-
turned players had been
connected through a
VCR. AHA! I'd found it. It
was a copy protection
system. The player's man-
ufacturers denied such
programs being in their
players, they were not ly-
ing. The thing is, out here
in the sticks, many peo-
ple have older TV sets,
and there are no A/V
ports on them to connect
newer electronics. The
answer is to connect your
DVD player through an
RF Modulator, or get a
new TV with the ports.

I'd forgotten this when I
recently got a new VCR to
watch some of the older
movies I still have. As my
TV only has one set of
ports, I had to loop the
DVD through the VCR.
The DVDs then began to
fade in and out. Not will-
ing to buy a modulator, or
a new TV, I looked into
how this copy protection
actually works, I finally
found out, but there real-
ly still aren't any new so-
lutions. It turns out that
copy protected DVDs
have frames alternating
between light and dark,
these frames are inserted
between the frames that
you view, and you do not
see them. your VCR does.
VCRs have Automatic
Gain Control, so when
they think a picture is
too dark, they brighten it,
and vice-versa for too
light. When they detect
these copy protection '
frames the automatic
gain control kicks in, ru-
ining your viewing
whether or not you are
trying to copy the movie.
Isn't technology great?

SPRINGHOUSE
QUILTERS NEWS

Several members of
Springhouse Quilters
have been making quilts
using the X-Block pat-
tern as their guide.
This is a very quick and
easy method of making a
serviceable and pretty
quilt. The block pattern
is made from the use of
strip piecing and then
cutting blocks to make
the X-Block design. The
block size can vary from
3 1/2 to 7 1/2 inches and
can be either a small or
large quilt depending on
the number of blocks
made for the quilt. Mary
Kay Lucas has been the
'teacher for this project
and is doing a great job
in getting several mem-
bers to finish their quilts.
A quilt can be made us-
ing only three different
fabrics.

Springhouse members
will be holding their
Christmas party the first
of December at the
Suwannee Valley Quilt
Shop thanks to owner
Stephanie Metts. Spring-
house has approximately
100 members from the tri-
county area. Some mem-
bers like Onnie Colson-
Fowler has been a mem-
ber since Springhouse be-


-gan in 1982. Thanks to
members like Ms. Onnie,
Springhouse has contin-
ued to grow and continue
teaching new quilters
how to quilt.

For most of December,
Springhouse members
will be working on their
Christmas projects and
will not be holding their
regular meetings. Now is
a great time for those in-
terested in joining
Springhouse to become a
member for 2009. If in-
terested, call or contact
Lois Scott, 463-2207. The
next regular monthly
business meeting for
Springhouse will be the
second Tuesday in Janu-
ary

FLORIDA HIGHWAY
PATROL INCREASES
ENFORCEMENT FOR
THANKSGIVING
TRAVEL PERIOD
Efforts aim to reduce the
number of crashes caused by
holiday travel ~
TALLAHASSEE The
'Phanksgiving holiday'is a
peak travel period for fam-
ilies joining together, but
far too often the holiday
celebration turns to
tragedy because of failure
to drive carefully and
wear
seatbelts. Since Thanks-
giving always produces a
high volume of traffic, the
Florida Highway Patrol... .
will increase its presence
on Florida roadways dur-
ing the upcoming five-day
holiday period. All sworn
personnel on the patrol
normally assigned to ad-
ministrative duties will be
reassigned to patrol duties
oni high volume roadways.
In addition, Auxiliary and
Reserve troopers will vol-

troopers during the height-
ened holiday enforcement
period.
"The Thanksgiving holidays
are typically times of heavy
traffic as people travel to
spend time with their fami-
lies, so we urge everyone
driving on our highways
during the holiday period to
drive carefully," said
Colonel John Czernis, direc-
tor of the Florida Highway
Patrol. "Allow yourself
plenty of time to reach your
destination safely, drive
sober and buckle up on each
and every trip..The holi-
days are a time for celebra-
tion, but we cannot forget
safety behind the wheel."
The Florida Highway Patrol
reminds motorists of'Flori-
da's Move Over Law. The
law requires motorists to
move over when a patrol
car, emergency vehicle or
tow truck/wrecker is
stopped on the side of tie
road with lights flashing.
Motorists are required to
change lanes away from au-
thorized emergency vehicles
if able to move over safely
or slow down while main-
taining a safe speed. Viola-
tors of the Move Over law
will be issued a citation.
Motorists are encouraged to
use their cellular telephones
safely. FHP urges all drivers
to call *FHP (*347) to report
drunk or aggressive drivers.
They can also use this num-
ber if their vehicle breaks
down or they need assis-
tance. Motorists needing im-
mediate emergency services
should dial 911.
The Department of High-
way Safety and Motor Vehi-
cles encourages anyone.
with a valid Florida driver
license or identification
card to go online to
www.flhsmv.gov and enter
their emergency contact
information. This vital in-
formation gives law enforce-
ment immediate access to
this information in
cases of an emergency,
which makes it easier for
them to contact a family
member or friend.

ATTORNEY GENERAL AN-
NOUNCES SETTLEMENT IN
DEBT RELIEF SCHEME THAT
VICTIMIZED
THOUSANDS

TALLAHASSEE, FL Attorney
General Bill McCollum today an-
nounced a judgment has been en-
.tered in the lawsuit against a se-
ries df companies accused of de-
frauding thousands of con-
sumers who sought assistance
for debt management. The judg-
ment permanently bars Florida-
based defendants Laura L. Hess
and her affiliated companies
from engaging in debt
settlement and/or debt manage-
ment-related services.

"Instead of the assistance they
were promised, thousands of
cash-strapped consumers found
themselves even deeper in debt,"
said Attorney General McCol-
lum. "By shutting down these op-
erations, we're sending a strong
message that the Attorney Gen-
eral's Office will not tolerate
scam artists who prey on the vul-
nerable."

The Attorney General's Econom-
ic Crimes Division filed a lawsuit
against Hess and her companies,
Laura Hess & Associates; P.A.;
Hess Kennedy Chartered LLC;
and the Consumer Law Center
LLC in February, accusing them
of signing thousands of credit
card debtors up for debt manage-
ment services and claiming her
law firm would provide legal ser-
vices to cancel debts for pennies
on the dollar. Consumers were
falsely told they did not have to
pay creditors, which led to law-
suits and other actions against
numerous debtors.

As a result of that lawsuit, Lau-
ra Hess and'the Hess Kennedy
companies are currently in re-
ceivership under Receiver Daniel
J. Stermer and last month, at the
Receiver's request, a Broward
County judge ordered Hess's
companies be liquidated and set-
tlements be reached to help pro-
vide restitution to affected con-
sumers. Shortly after that ruling,
Capital One announced a $1.8
million settlement forgiving the
credit card debt of approximate-
ly 18,000 consumers nationwide,
including nearly 1,900 Florida
residents, who contracted with
the Hess Kennedy companies for
the fraudulent services. Pur-
suant to a separate settlement

Beulah Lee Tripp


MRS. BEULAH LEE TRIPP passed away Saturday, No-
vember 22, 2008. She was born June 19, 1923, in Clara
Florida (near Steinhatchee where she grew up) to parents
John.M. and Susan Johnson. The oldest of nine children,
she is survived by three sisters, Catherine Drawdy, Chris-
tine Lycke and Ruthie Nielson, all of Steinhatchee, Flori-
da and a brother, Dalton of Fort Worth, TX. On July 7,
1943 she married Charles Tripp of Lancaster, Ohio, a ca-
reer navy man and later a police officer. They were mar-
ried over 42 years until his death on February 26, 1986.
She and Charlie had four sons, all of whom survive her
today; Dr. Fred Tripp and Dan Tripp, Sr., of,Monroe,
Louisiana; Mike Tripp, Sr. of Raleigh, NC, and Jody Tripp
of Middleburg, Florida ('near Jacksonville). She is also
survived by 13 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren,
as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

A housewife, "Bobbie", as known to her friends and fami-
ly, was very active throughout her life. She was a cub-
scout den mother, active in church, including being the
church treasurer and a choir member. She and her broth-
er and sisters used to sing as a group in church and in
other venues. She participated in Beta Sigma Phi and
worked for the Meals-On-Wheels program. A great cook,'
she was especially famous with her family for her noo-
dles, which she hand-rolled and cooked with chicken and
served over mashed potatoes, and they loved her-chili as
well. Fellow church. goers and those at her Johnson/Mc-
Call family reunions enjoyed her noodles and her choco-
late delight dessert...both of which would be gone quickly
from the-big spread on the tables at the community, cen-
ter.

Bobbie Lee had a big heart and opened her home to fami-
ly and served friends in many ways. A loving grandmoth-
er, who always enjoyed having new babies around and
rocking them and taking care of them, will be missed for
her many prayers and ways of making all of us who
knew her during her 85-plus years feel at home.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, November 29, 2008
at 10:30 AM at Friendship Church of God in Steinhatchee
with Rev. Tom Shields officiating. Burial will follow at
Waters Memorial Cemetery A visitation will be held Fri-
day evening, November 28, 2008 between the hours of 6

NEW PROSPECT BAPTIST NEWS

It was a privilege to be in God's house again Sunday as our
choir sang beautifully and Bro. Billy so ably brought the
Word to us, choosing his text from Psalms 100:1-5 and
Psalms 103:1-2, morning and evening, respectively We were
most pleased to have visitors once again, and encourage
you to come and fellowship with us anytime; you're always
welcome at New Prospect!

We thank God for all His wonderful blessing throughout the
year but, during this special time set aside for giving
thanks, we emphasize more heavily the Source for all our,
blessings...thank You, Lord! This past Sunday, we held a
Home Dedication at the beautiful new home of Bro. Cody
and Sis. Chasity Lord; may God continue to bless this
young family.

From New Prospect Baptist Church, we wish everyone a
safe and Happy Thanksgiving! As always, please be in
prayer for all the people on the various prayer lists, our
President and military, and the precarious condition of our
'world. May God bless and keep you safe.

Suwannee Gives Thanks


IL


Congratulations to our $50.00 gift certificate winners, Savanna Beckham and Blake
Apodaca! Blake was photographed for this story, but somebody forgot to make sure
there was a memory card in the camera. Sorry Blake! Winners were drawn at
random by the first kid who came into the Advocate on Tuesday morning. Thank
you to all of the kids who colored turkeys! We'll do another contest for Christmas,
so get your crayons ready.


The members of the Suwannee River Chamber invited the community of Suwannee to
join them on Tuesday November 18th, for a dinner of turkey and dressing at the recently
renovated community center. The fall decorations and time of visiting was followed by
President Miller expressing our appreciation to Arthur, his staff and the Dixie County
Commission for the tremendous improvements to the community building and the
Firehouse Gym. While there are some finishing touches yet to be completed on both
places, the majority of, thework has been completed. Thanks to all who helped make
this possible.
