Suwannee Seawall Held up


In Bureaucratic Red Tape


-By Angel Lee

On February 10th, the Varsity
.Bears hit the road and trav-
eled to Chiefland to take on
the Indians in the District
Quarterfinal Game. To start
with, I'm very proud of our
fans coming out and support-
ing our team on this trip.
They stood behind our boys
and cheered them on the en-
tire game. Go Fans! The at-
Smosphere for this game was
insane, as both schools had
the gym rockin' before the
game even started.

At the 2 minute warning in the first, the In-
dians were holding onto a 1 point lead, 9-8,
and at the end, were still holding on to that
1 point lead, leading 11-10. The Bears started
their scoring attack, leading 16-11 with 6:46
left in the half.

The score changed hands a lot during this
game, and at halftime, it was the Indians
leading, 27-26. The 2nd half was just as ex-
citing as the 1st. with 5:34 left in the 3rd, the
score was all tied up at 30, and the Indians
took a 39-37 lead into the 4th quarter. The
4th was the most intense 8 minutes.

With 2:23 left to go in the game, Chiefland
grabbed hold of their 1 point lead again,

leading Dixie 50-49. The nears iougnt nara
and clawed their way back to the lead, as
they led 57-50 with only 1 minute left to go
in the game. The Indians just wouldn't go
away quietly, as they came from behind to
tie the score up at 57 at the end of regula-
tion and send the game into Overtime.

The Indians opened up at 4 point lead, 61-57
with 2:21 left, but with 24.2 seconds left in
OT, the Bears climbed their back'to the top,
and closed the gap to just, yep, you guessed
it, a one point lead for the Indians, 64-63.
The Bears played with determination and
heart, and played a great game, but the Indi-
ans came away with the victory, defeating
the Bears 67-63.


349 Brush Fire


A' small brush fire on Tuesday evening-burned approxi-
mately 10 acres of brush and grass on North CR 349 direct-
ly across from Forest Park Hills Road. Fire trucks were dis-
patched and the blaze was quickly extinguished with mini-
mal damage.


The Live Oak Regulatory
Field Office of the Army
Corps of Engineers has '
slapped a "Cease and De-
sist" order on the new sea-
wall underway at Suwannee.
The seawall project is de-
signed to protect CR 349
from erosion and is grant-
funded.

Although Dixie County
thought that it had jumped
through all of the permit-
ting hoops, apparently there
was one inadvertently
missed. The County engi-
neers applied for permits
with the Suwannee River
Water Management District
back in December of 2008.
SRWMD apparently submit-
ted the permit application
for the seawall to the Army
Corps of Engineers, but the
county was not aware that
the permit had not been re-
ceived. SRWMD issued the
"ERP" Permit in January
and work commenced on the
seawall.


On January 19,
the County re-
ceived a re-
quest for more
information on
the permit
from the ACOE,
and the County
immediately
overnighted all
of the informa-'
tion requested
to them. A rep-'
resentative of
ACOE told the
County that the project
should qualify under the Na-
tionwide Permit Program,
which authorizes permits
on a national basis. Howev-
er, a different ACOE agent
from another department
who was not privy to the on-
going discussion.and who
was in Suwainnee on anoth-
er matter decided unilateral-
'ly to shut down the project'
and to refer it to the Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-
tection. .


The resulting cease and,de-
sist order has stopped work
on the project, and all of the
people working on it have
been sent home. County
Manager Arthur Bellot stat-
ed that "this project is the
perfect definition of an eco-
nomic stimulus, and it's sit-
ting there, shut down."

The County is working
feverishly with the ACOE
and the DEP to get the pro-
ject back up and running be-
fore the deadline on the
grant money expires.

Gasoline: what it costs vs. what it's worth
The price of crude oil went close to halfway beyond the hun-
dred dollar a barrel mark last summer, and since the price of
crude is a significant factor in determining the price of gaso-
line, that meant upwards of four bucks a gallon.'Not surpris-
ingly, consumers complained. Loud and long.

And who could blame them? Nobody liked paying that kind of
money for a product that sold for 30 cents a gallon when John
F Kennedy was elected. You probably didn't complain.if you
owned stock in an oil company, but for folks who made hun-
dred mile round trips to work it was an unconscionable burden
inflicted, not by your corner gas station, but by speculators on
Wall Street who were betting the price would keep going up.

The only enijoymentI gbt oit of that whole situation was the
satisfaction I felt when the bottom finally dropped out of the
petrol boom, crushing the dreams of speculators'who had been
fantasizing about pricey new cars (with hybrid engines, of
course) and condos on the beaches of southern Florida.

Unfortunately, that development occurred right about the time
that the entire economy hit the skids in abig way One set of
"experts" (a job' description that doesn't seem to have suffered
any layoffs) told us that the economic decline caused the price
of crude to tumble, while others said the sudden drop in the
price of oil triggered the troubled times on Wall Street.

They can argue that point if it keeps them occupied, but here's
why the price of crude oil--and consequently gasoline--dropped
in a big way: It was an election year, and four dollar gasoline ,
had a major segment of the American public badly bent out of
shape. So, all of a sudden, politicians started talking about
how we needed to drill for oil in places like ANWAR and our
coastal waters, build new refineries, and establish nuclear pow-
er as our main source of electricity

This, of course, was stuff we should have been doing all along,
ever since the towel-heads invented OPEC back in the early
seventies. But when all of a sudden it started looking like it
might actually be getting dohe, that caused extreme consterna-
fion on the part of people who were getting rich(er) at the ex-'
pense of the American working class.

The caliphs of the cartel got together and threatened to reduce
the supply of crude to us infidels, but then a funny thing hap-
pened. They all thought it would be a good idea, but only if
just the other members of the group did that. So nobody made
any significant cutbacks and the price continued to slide, with
gasoline coming to rest in the vicinity of a buck and a half a
gallon, based on crude selling at under $40 a barrel.

Actually, leaving the price low was good for the oil merchants,
even though it wasn't what they wanted. As the price of gaso-
line dropped, the American public's attentimoifocused on other
economic factors and the demand for more oil" ploration died
down.

Then, we elected a President and a Congress who have bought
into the gospel according to Al Gore. The.chance of any ag-.
gressive pursuit of domestic petroleum has given way to wind
farms and solar panels. And while even the politically-correct
French are cool (in summer, warm in winter) with nuclear
power, American liberals cling tenaciously to the doctrine of
Jane Fonda and her Three Mile Island fantasies.Sinking oil
wells in Alaska and our coastal waters would actually invigo-
rate the economy through the private sector, as would building
new refineries and nuclear power plants. What government
would have to do is get rid of the prohibitive restrictions that
keep this from happening. That might not be easy, but it would-
n't cost a trillion dollars.

Since that's not going to happen anytime soon, given who we
have running the government, it should not surprise us that
the price of gasoline has crept back up to the vicinity of two
bucks a gallon, even as the price of crude remains below $40.
The Arabs understand that we won't be going after the AN-
WAR oil, while the oil companies are cutting back on refinery
output to keep their profit margin up despite a stagnant econo-
my

What gasoline is actually worth is about where the price bot-
tomed out late last year. But that doesn't mean itwon't keep
costing more in the weeks and months ahead.


Bread & Cir


y Kathy McKinney


*... Already long ago, from when we sold our
vote to no man, the People have abdicated our
duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out
military command, high civil office,
legions everything, now restrains itself
and anxiously hopes for just two things:
bread and circuses
--Juvenal, Satire X

Juvenal wrote that in the late 1st century in ancient Rome.
He was angry that the Roman people had sold out their po-
litical souls for free wheat handouts and some tickets to col-
iseum entertainments. Sort of like 'American Idol," Roman
edition, I guess. Instead of Simon telling you that you sing
like a drunken, asthmatic hippopotomus, they'd just bring

Well, the government passed the "stimulus"

I can't blame this financial fiasco entirely on
the government. The sad truth is, that the
American people are to blame. We've gotten intellectually
and politically lazy; we can't be bothered to keep up with
what our government is doing. We can't be bothered to read
about history or to understand the principles and ideals
upon which this country was founded, or to do research to
see which politician will best protect our interests.

Here are a few of the questions from the "Citizenship Test"
that the INS gives immigrants who want to be citizens.
These are considered basic knowledge for being an Ameri-
can. How many of we native-born Americans would pass?

It's not surprising that we're ignorant of politics and gov-
ernment. Who wants to watch CSPAN and congressional
hearings when you can flip over a channel and watch COPS?
It's too hard. It's boring. It's no fun. It's no wonder that the
government has run amok with our tax money; we're asleep
at the wheel. We've abdicated our responsibility to pay at-
tention. The big newspapers are dying because we're too
lazy to read. The evening news covers Hannah Montana


To the Editor:

Let's get something estab-
lished here before we go on
hollering about executive
pay and monstrous bonuses
shall we.

One of the biggest 'indus-
tries' in the United States
that supplies immense pow-
er to the U.S. economy not
only within our own borders
but across the entire planet
is our financial system. This
is an economic engine of al-
most unimaginable size and
power yet is in its own way
as finally balanced as a first
rate Swiss watch. Everyday
we have to listen to people ,
who moan about the loss of
jobs to foreign workers due

Dear Editor
When you're so stingy
that you won't share
your time with a person
of the opposite sex be-
cause you only want to'
do what you want to do,
then you must learn to
place your own toilet pa-
per on your own holder.
Does your father act like
that? .

Signed:
A Concerned Citizen

Dear Concerned Daddy, er,
Citizen:
No, my father doesn't act like
that. He's more than willing
to stop arranging and sort-
ing his towels by color and
thread count to put toilet pa-
per on a roll. (With the little
paper flap on the outside,
and folded in a neat triangle,
of course.) He is obsessive-
compulsive that way.

If you don't quit writing
nasty letters to the editor I'm
going to come put a blue tow-
el in with your pink ones
and eat some of your olives.

The vast majority of these
lost jobs are in what econo-

that are no longer forward

high growth potential. In
other words they are indus-

way of the buggy whip.

What congress is proposing,
while not only illegal but
also delusional, is to begin
the murder of one of the
most powerful economic en-

So many people can't even be bothered to vote, unless some-

ft's "bonehead" math: fewer working and productive people
supporting larger and larger numbers of non-productive A
people. This is just not a sustainable trend. .

I wish I had some cheerful spin of all of this, but the truth !
is, it scares me. I do not see any quick or easy way out of
this financial mess, and I can easily imagine the tax load
that my kids w ill face in order to pay off the high-speed "
train from L.A. to Las Vegas and the riew parking at Miami ''
stadium. "'

The only bright spotthat I can see is that the ridiculous ',
waste of money has finally kicked the Republicans in the '
butt and reminded them what "conservative" means. Maybe,
they'll remember a bit about other old-fashioned words like ^
"honesty" and "honor" and "responsibility", too. Maybe the
concept of "civic duty" will come back into vogue, before ,
the country goes down the drain. If not, we have only our-
selves to blame.


I understand that there are
many Americans out there
who, in their anger, couldn't
care less about the rights of
some over-paid executives
but they should!! Once you
accept such legislation as be-
ing just fine by you the door
opens for further attempts to
retroactively write laws that
will eventually effect even
those people directly.

In their haste to do some-
thing, anything, so as to be
seen as leading, our govern-
ment is going off in scatter
shot directions without a
clue as to the long term ef-
fects of what they are doing.
By the time those effects are
known it will be too late to
close the barn door.

Keynesian economics of the
type practiced by FDR did
NOT end the Depression de-
spite what has become al-
most holy writ to the liber-
al/socialist wing of the De-
mocratic Party over the last
70+ years. It did, however,
open the door to the accept-
ability (by both parties) of
the concept of deficit spend-
ing by the government as a
way in which to engineer
any number of real or imag-
ined social, political, and
economic problems. It has
led us to this point in our
history where it is accept-
able to EVERYONE at
EVERY level to spend more
then we have for whatever
reason we can think of. In
fact we have begun to think
in terms of not only spend-
ing more then we have right
now but more then we will
EVER HAVE in our life-
times. I've seen suggestions
for 60, 80, and more years
for home mortgages. In oth-
er words indebtedness that
passes to your children.


That's exactly what the vari-
ous enacted and proposed "
deficit spending measures .
presently before us will ac-
complish for our children. It
will leave them and probably ,
.their children as well to pay ?
for this generations inability
to live within it's means for ,,
the past 50-60 years. That's a [
sorry epitaph for our gener- i
national marker...." Here Lies'
The Generation That Bank-
rupted The Future"


Bob Minor, Old Town, FL


Mr Minor:
We are in total agreement. '
When the government makes
the rules, nobody can be al-
lowed to win, so we all lose.

Ronald Reagan once wrote a
letter "to Richard Nixon about
Kennedy that could have been
written yesterday about our .
new President & his danger-.
ous old "new" ideas:

"Unfortunately, he is a
powerful speaker with an
appeal to the emotions. He
leaves little doubt that his
idea of the 'challenging new
world' is one in which the,
Federal Government will
grow bigger and do more
and of course spend
more....One last thought -
shouldn't someone tag Mr. -
Kennedy's bold new imagi- -
native program with its
proper age? Under the tou-
sled boyish haircut is still
old Karl Marx first
launched a century ago.
There is nothing new in the,
idea of a Government being'
Big Brother to us all. Hiter :'*
called his 'State Socialism'
and way before him it was
'benevolent monarchy."'

Former Shipping Executive Sentenced To 48 Months

In Jail For His Role In Antitrust Conspiracy
Sentence Is Longest Jail Term Ever Imposed for a Single Antitrust Violation


WASHINGTON -A former high-
level shipping executive was sen-
tenced.today to serve 48 months in
jail and to pay a $20,000 criminal
fine for his role in an antitrust con-
spiracy involving the transporta-/
tion of goods to and from the conti-
nental United States and Puerto
Rico by ocean vessel, the Depart-
ment of Justice announced today
This is the longest jail sentence
ever imposed for a single antitrust
charge.

Peter Baci of Jacksonville, Florida,
pleaded guilty on Oct. 20, 2008, in
the U.S. District Court in Jack-
sonville for his role in the conspira-
cy, which began at least as early as
May 2002 and continued until as
late as April 2008. Baci was charged
with engaging in a conspiracy to
suppress and eliminate competition
in the coastal water freight trans-
portation services between the con-
tinental United States and Puerto
Rico by agreeing to allocate cus-
tomers, agreeing to rig bids submit-
ted to government and commercial
buyers, and agreeing to fix the,
prices of rates, surcharges, and oth-
er fees charged to customers.

Related antitrust charges remain
pending in the U.S. District Court


in Jacksonville against three other
shipping executives: R. Kevin Gill
and Gregory Glova, of Charlotte,
North Carolina; and Gabriel Serra,
of San Juan, Puerto Rico. A related
obstruction of justice charge is also
pending against a fifth shipping ex-
ecutive, Alexander Chisholm, of
Jacksonville.

"Today's sentencing should make
clear that individuals who violate
the antitrust laws will be prosecut-
ed to the fullest extent of the law,"
said Scott D. Hammond, Acting As-
sistant Attorney General in charge
of the Department's Antitrust Divi-
sion. "Significant jail time will be a
consequence of harming con- "1 !,
sumers and competition in both the
continental United States and Puer-
to Rico."

Baci worked for a large U.S. compa-
ny that provides freight shipping
services to customers transporting
goods between the continental Unit-
ed States and Puerto Rico. These
companies transport a variety of
cargo shipments, such as heavy
equipment, medicine, food and con-
sumer goods. Sales of freight ser-
vices in the United States to Puerto
Rico shipping lane total hundreds
of millions of dollars every year, as


ocean shipping is a primary way for
people in Puerto Rico to receive es-
sential goods.

In June 2004, Congress raised the
maximum sentence for antitrust
crimes from three years imprison-
ment to 10 years imprisonment.
While longer jail sentences have
been imposed against individuals
who violated the antitrust laws to-
gether with other crimes, this case
represents the first time that an in-
dividual was sentenced to more
than three years for a single an-
titrust charge,

,:'The'current prosecution and pend-
'ing charges arose from an ongoing
federal antitrust investigation into
bid rigging and other anticompeti-
tive conduct in the shipping indus-
try, which is being conducted by the
National Criminal Enforcement
Section of the Antitrust Division
and the Jacksonville Field Office of
the Federal Bureau of Investigation
(FBI). Anyone with information
concerning the focus of this investi-
gation is urged to call the Antitrust
Division's National Criminal En-
forcement Section at 202-307-6694, or
the FBI's Jacksonville Field Office
at 904-721-1211.


WASHINGTON -'A federal jury in
Jacksonville, Fla., found Paul Tillis,
a former Florida Department of
Corrections officer, guilty on Jan.
16, 2009, of a felony federal civil
rights violation for an August 2005
assault on an inmate.
The evidence at trial showed that
on Aug. 14, 2005, Tillis assaulted the
victim by pouring a bottle of scald-
ing water onto the victim's chest.
Tillis was on duty as a supervisory
corrections officer at the Florida
State Prison in Raiford. During his
shift, one of the inmates in his' cus-
tody allegedly feigned injury by ly-
ing on the floor of his cell. In re-
sponse, the defendant filled a bottle
from a nearby dispenser that pro-
vided water at near-boiling temper-
atures, theh poured the scalding
water onto the victim's chest. Tillis
also failed to arrange for medical
\,^^

fered second degree burns on his
chest as a result of this assault.
. "It is important that corrections
officers realize they may not use
their positions of authority to in-
flict physical harm on inmates as
punishment," said Acting Assistant
Attorney General Loretta King for
the Civil Rights Division. "While
the vast majority of law enforce-
ment officers carry out their diffi-
cult duties in a lawful and profes-
sional manner, the Department of
Justice will continue to vigorously
prosecute those who cross the line
and commit this type of unlawful;
act."
Tillis faces a maximum punish-
ment of ten years in prison and a
$250,000 fine. A sentencing date has
not yef been scheduled by the court.

Confederate Monument Proposed for Courthouse Hallway


Youth conservation centers open children's eyes


The Sons of Confederate Veterans, rep-
resented by Joe Sparacino, will be ap-
pearing before the Dixie County Board
of County Commissioners on Thursday
evening at 6:00 to request that a "Special
Recognition Plaque" be placed in the
courthouse hallway.
The Southern Mercury, the publication of
the SCV, claims that it is in a fight
against the "War on Southern Culture."
The group has been criticized by
Pulitzer Prize-winning Civil War histori-
an and Princeton Professor James
McPherson who said "They are dedicat-
ed to celebrating the Confederacy and
rather thinly veiled support for white su-
premacy" However, he later retracted
those remarks saying that he did not
mean to imply that all SCV members or
chapters promote a racist agenda.
The group began with the campaign to
preserve Chickamauga and Chattanooga
National Military Park. Its stated mis-
sion is to "preserve the history and lega-
cy of (Confederate) heroes, so future
generations can understand the motives
that animated the Southern Cause."

NEW PROSPECT BAPTIST
NEWS

Each day in God's house evokes the memory of a
song of a few years ago entitled "Sweeter As the
Days Go By," a fitting description of life when one
is grounded in Jesus. It does indeed grow sweeter
as the days go by. On Sunday, we were again
blessed with the beautiful singing of our choir and
some excellent preaching by Bro. Gene, as he chose
his texts from Luke 19:1-10 and 1st Peter 5:6-11
morning and evening, respectively. We're glad to
report that Bro. Billy is still up and about, as he
continues to regain his strength.
There will be an Associational Sing at Mt. Nebo
this coming Saturday, Feb. 21st, at 6:30 PM. The
following Saturday, Feb. 28th, the Community Sing
will be held at New Prospect, beginning at 6:00 PM.
Please join us at one or both of these events for
some good gospel music and singing!
As Bro. Robert, Sis. Tracey, and group prepare for
and embark on their mission trip to Honduras ear-
ly Thursday, Feb. 19th, please keep all of them in
your prayers, that they will have a safe and fruitful
trip as they go about doing the Lord's Work. Please
be praying also for all the folks on the church
prayer lists here at home, our people in the mili-
tary, and our political leaders. We were very
pleased to have Visitors again Sunday, and extend
you a special invitation to come back anytime,
along with all others who might favor us with a vis-
it. Have a good week, and may God bless and keep
you safe.


By Rodney Barreto, Chairman
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission
The day is coming when to-
day's youngsters will take
over control of the fate of
Florida's fish, wildlife and
habitats. We must first in-
troduce them to these trea-
sures before we step aside,
or we risk entrusting them
with things they have never
learned to love and protect. B ,
We talk about this a lot in
the conservation communi-
ty, especially at the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC). We
have so isolated our chil- .
dren from nature, out of
fear for their safety, that we '
have been a barrier between
children and the birthright nature offers
them. We don't let them climb trees any-
more or catch tadpoles or even play in the
woods.
The FWC is teaming up with partners and
mobilizing volunteers to develop and oper-
ate new facilities where families and chil-
dren can interact with nature and learn the
skills that will open a whole new world of
adventure for them. The first one already is
operating. It's the Beau Turner Youth Con-
servation Center, about 30 miles east of Tal-
lahassee. More are on the way.
The Beau Turner Youth Conservation Cen-
ter offers kids the opportunity to see, hear,
smell and touch the face of Mother Nature.
Kids can catch fish there and learn hunting
skills and hunter safety The center offers
summer day camps, and it's all accessible to
handicapped individuals. Everything at the
center runs entirely on solar energy Parents
can register their 12- to 16-year-old children
for a variety of free classes, for which the
FWC will provide all the necessary equip-
ment and materials. The FWC is deeply
grateful to Turner and his family for turn-
ing the center into a reality
Meanwhile, my fellow FWC Commissioner
Dick Corbett is spearheading a team to re-
search potential locations for more youth
conservation centers in other parts of the
, state, including the Tenoroc Fish Mlanage-
ment Area in Lakeland. Tenoroc already has
nature trails, fishing ponds, an archery
range and shotgun and rifle ranges that will
reduce the startup costs for a new center
there. Danon Moxley, Tenoroc's manager,
has developed strong working relationships
with stakeholders and volunteers to make
the center a reality I


The vision is to offer regularly scheduled
programs to get youths actively involved in
the outdoors. The centers will be places
where young people and families participate
in outdoor activities and share experiences
that will strengthen their connection with,
and support for, fish and wildlife conserva-
tion. That's what we must accomplish before
we pass the cause of natural resource stew-
ardship on to the next generation.
The FWC's Office of Recreation Services has
developed facilities concepts and plans, so
construction can move ahead as soon as we
can find funding for the centers. We will
search high and low for funding, and we are
counting on part of the money to come from
the Wildlife Foundation of Florida.
Those of us who love Florida and want to
be part of this effort should consider mak-
ing a donation to the foundation to support
the FWC's youth conservation centers.
Too many of today's kids have never caught
a fish, and too many have never experienced
the special kind of bonding that takes place
within families on an outdoor adventure.
Yet, they stand to inherit natural treasures
they won't even recognize or understand. We
have to change that, and the time is short.
You can make a tax-deductable contribution'
to the foundation by sending a check or
money order to Wildlife Foundation of
Florida Inc., P.O. Box 11010, Tallahassee, FL
32302 or by visiting the foundation's Web
site at www.wildlifefoundationofflorida.com.

Redneck Tech

by Eli Loy


Mac iSmacks iCracks


The Apple corporation has filed a
suit stating that people who modify
their iPhones are committing an
act of copyright infringement.
Now, modifying the code on a DVD
so that you can redistribute it is
copyright infringement. Installing
programs on your cellular phone
that were not written by the origi-
nal equipment manufacturer can
hardly be grouped with software
piracy

According to Apple, their iPhones
rely on a "chain of trust" and peo-
ple installing programs that are
not Apple approved on their device
can cause errors and make the
company look bad. To me, that's
like saying that putting a super-
charger on your Ford can cause the
engine to malfunction (read "ex-
plode) if it's not done right, and
would make the car company look
bad. Ridiculous. I can see voiding
the warranty on the device, but Ap-
ple is pushing for jail time, up to
five years, in fact. Of course that is
entirely disproportionate to the al-
leged "crime" of modifying a cell,
phone, and likely won't go through.
What Apple fails to remember is
that here, in America, when you
buy something, it's yours. If you
want to buy a car and change out
engine parts to make it go faster,
get better gas mileage, or even
sound different, you can. I'm pretty
sure the same things apply to elec-
tronics. If you buy a computer, you
can change as many of the parts in
it as you want, put whatever pro-
grams in it that you want, and if
the original manufacturer doesn't
like it, well they. can refuse to hon-
or the warranty Unless they can
show that your tinkering caused
them actual damages, that's all
they can do.

I doubt the Library of Congress
(that's where the\hearing is at) will
rule in Apple's favor, but who
knows? Either way, it seems to be a
public relations nightmare. I guess
they'll have to stop picking on Mi-
crosoft now.


End User License Agreement
(EULA)

Modern companies are under the
(seemingly correct) assumption
that they can make the end-user
(you) agree to whatever obscure
terms they put in the EULA when
you open the box. This is the basis
for the iPhone suit. There is a sim-
q.psolution, STOP BUYING their
products.

Don't like the fact the the iPhone
won't let you modify it's propri-
etary software? Get a.Google G1
from T-Mobile. The Gl runs on the
Android OS, and is a part of the
Open Handset Alliance. The OHA
wants you to have open source cell-
phones. Android OS. source code is
available for download from their
developer website. Now, several re-
views of the G1 have found it lack-
ing in the media player depart-
ment, and have pointed out that
there is no standard headphone
jack. Well, the lack of the standard
headset jack is an unfixable prob-
lem, so if you REALLY need one,
you'll need to get a different phone.
While the G1 works with mono
bluetooth headsets, stereo head-
phones are not yet supported.'
There is hope though, the Android
OS is working on its "Cupcake" re-
lease, which will include better
email support, stereo bluetooth
support, and fix many other com-
plaints with the OS.

Right now it looks like T-Mobile is
waiting to release the "Cupcake"
update to its phones. There were
rumors of the update (RC31) being
released at the end of January, but
this was apparently just a rumor.
Still, if you want to modify your
cellphone, the G1 looks like the
way to go. As previously stated, it
is open source, so you are encour-
aged to modify it; unlike the
iPhone, which Apple is trying to
make punishable by up to a 51 year
prison sentence for modding.

If you are a serious developer you


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson today unveiled a new program to
increase the amount of locally grown produce' avail-
able to Florida schools. The "Farm to School" program
is designed to help Florida school district food service
officials locate local farmers who want to sell fresh
produce directly to schools.

"Every year, Florida schools spend millions of dollars
for fresh produce," Bronson said. "The Florida 'Farm
to School' program is intended to keep more of those
dollars within the state. It also promotes healthy eat-
ing habits among students and assists small local farm-
ers."


can get the Android Dev Phone 1.
The Dev Phone 1 is a hardware-un-
locked, SIM-unlocked cellular
handset. You hack and tweak the
phone to your heart's desire.
What's more, you can use the
phone on virtually any network.

So, if you want a superior media
playing device, get an iPhone. Keep
in mind that Apple is getting pretty
heavy-handed about people pulling
any electrical wizardry on their de-
vices. While it is unlikely they'll
win their copyright suit, why take
the chance? If you want to tinker
with your phone, get one that en-
courages tinkering.

And now for something
completely different...

Did you hear about the-French
nuclear submarine and the British.
nuclear submarine that collided in
the Atlantic? Sorry, there is no
punch line, it really happened. Two
gigantic, state of the art, nuclear
driven, atomic missile armed,, sub-
marines, with (allegedly) advanced
sonar scanning capabilities actual-
ly collided with one another.

Granted, the things are designed
to aviod detection, I suppose that's
the point, and they were apparently
sneaking around in the same hid-
ing place, but really man... How
can your sonar not pick up a huge
wall of moving metal until you col-
lide with it? The French, not being
a member of NATO don't report
their submarine's locations to oth-
er navies. It turns out that only two
people on each sub knew their ac-
tual location, due to military en-
forced sneakiness measures.
The collision, which was deemed
minor due to the low speed that the
subs were travelling at; caused'
about 50,000,000 worht of damage.
Fortunately neither reactor
breached, thus averting a potential
crisis. The outcome could have .
been much less fortunate. Had the
either of the reactors been
breached the lives of the subma-
rine's crew would have been almost
certainly forfeit, and while the nu-
clear warheads weren't really in
jeopardy of being detonated, they
are certainly not the kind of thing
you want littering the ocean floor.
We seem to be seriously concerned
about North Korea or Iran getting
nuclear weapons. Perhaps we
should be concerned about the
numbskulls that have them already.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
"What we don't know
can hurt us"

Dear Editor,

I've recently learned of the tire
incinerator planned for Dixie
County and as air pollution
won't stop at the county line, as
a resident of the southern part
of Taylor County I'm con-
cerned for the health of Dixie
and Taylor County residents.

What promoters of tire inciner-
ators fail to mention in their
promotional materials is that
,tire incineration under any cir-
cumstance creates pollution
that makes the air dangerous to
breathe and causes harm to the
environment.

Not revealed to Dixie County
residents is the fact that Dixie
Waste Services, using another
nIame of Pasco .County Synergy
LLC attempted to cite their tire
incinerator near Masryktown,
but failed due to opposition
from the citizens and local
elected officials. Incinerators
typically generate controversy,
yet it seems that very little is
known about Dixie Waste Ser-
vices by the residents of Dixie
County.

It is common knowledge that
burning tires in is extremely
harmful to human health and,
the natural environment. The
fumes emitted are packed with
the many toxic chemicals that
tires contain (including volatile
organic compounds such as
benzene, metals such as lead,
polycyclic aromatic hydrocar-
bons such as benzo(a)pyrene,
and synthetic rubber compo-
nents such as butadiene and
styrene). Additionally the chlo-
rine content in tires leads to


CFO SINK
ANNOUNCES
LEGISLATION TO
HELP SAFEGUARD
FLORIDA SENIORS

~~ Bi-Partisan Legislation
Sponsored by Senator Mike
Bennett (R-Bradenton) and
Representative Keith
Fitzgerald (D- Sarasota) -~~

TALLAHASSEE In 2006,
Bonnie Madden, 81 from
Port Richey, purchased two
annuities from insurance
agent Randolph Kahl-Win-
ter.

A year later, her agent en-
gaged in a practice known
as "twisting" when he false-
ly.inflated Madden's net
worth and converted her an-
nuities into one annuity pol-
icy with a different company
in order to generate a
$52,000 commission for him-
self. The agent's action
would have cost Madden
nearly $300,000 of her life
savings if the Department of
Financial Services had not -
Sintervened.

Chief Financial Officer Alex
Sink said it is because of
Madden, and others like her,
that she has teamed up with'
key lawmakers to push for
tougher penalties for un-
scrupulous agents who de-
fraud senior investors and
establish better disclosures
and protections upfront for
seniors who-invest in these
products.

Sink said her department
has heard from hundreds of
seniors and their families


the creation of dioxins and fu-
rans (which are extremely toxic
chemicals) when tires are in-
cinerated.

Yet, tire incinerator proponents
want you to believe that their
incineration process is harm-
less. Scathing critiques by rep-
utable scientists like Dr. Nell
Carman and Dr. Seymour I.
Schwartz in response to the
"junk science" and stacked sta-
tistics behind the rubber-stamp
approval of tire incinerators
have not been revealed to Dixie
County residents. These ex-
perts, along with-othersteIei-
tists, ecologists, and public in-
terest groups, have Uncovered
the truth behind the propagan-
da -- that tire incineration by
any method is NOT safe.

The test data in the Dixie Waste
Services DEP permit is not an
accurate measure of the actual
day-to-day emissions of a given
plant. Trial burns are generally
considered a poor indicator of
operation on a daily basis: dur-
ing trial burns when regulatory
authorization is at stake and
government officials are at the
site, variables such as'waste-
feed, temperature, oxygen flow,
and pollution control device ef-
ficiency are carefully main-
tained to optimize perfor-
mance. On a day-to-day basis,
emissions may be considerably
higher.

Dr. Schwartz also notes that .
"Virtually nothing is known
about the dose-response func-
tions for important categories
of health effects, particularly.
disruptions to the hormone sys-
tems of humans, which could
produce life long damage in de-
veloping infants. Also, virtually
nothing is known about the
health effects caused by combi-
nations of toxic chemicals that
are emitted when burning tires.
Without such scientific knowl-,


who say they were con-
vinced to liquidate annu-
ities, CDs, stocks and sav-
ings accounts to fund new
annuities only to discover
these actions robbed them of
their savings.

"The number of complaints
from Florida seniors about
annuities has nearly
quadrupled in the last three
years," said Sink, whose de-
partment has opened 474 in-
vestigations on financial
fraud involving seniors,
with approximately 70 per-
cent of cases related to an-
nuity and life insurance
transactions. "Better finan-
cial protections for our
growing population of se-
nior residents and tougher
consequences for those who
defraud our seniors demand
our immediate attention."

Florida is currently home to
more than 2.9 million
Floridians over.the age of
65. The state's senior popula-
tion is projected to grow by
as much as 30 percent, and
many of these seniors will
look into investing in annu-
ities.

An annuity is an insurance
contract that offers a guar-
anteed series of payments
over a period of time. Se-
niors may consider purchas-
ing an "immediate" annuity,
where payments begin right
away or "deferred" annu-
ities, which accumulate sav-
ings over a period of time
before payments begin.


Under the legislation, the
act of "twisting" an annuity
to a senior consumer would


edge, and because some toxic
pollutants increase from burn-
ing tires, there is no scientific
basis for the Board to conclude
that burning waste tires is
safe."

The evidence clearly demon-
strates that tire incineration re-
leases a variety of toxic pollu-
tants into the air, posing dan-
gerous and potentially deadly
threat to human health and they
environment. A study recently
released, "Cleaner Air Equals
Longer Life" shows that drops
in fine-particle pollution corre-
late with increases in life ex-
pectancy. An article on that
study is online at:
http://health.usnews.com/arti-
cleg/health/health-
day/2009/01/21/cleaner-air-
equals-longer-life.html

Tire incineration is dangerous,
and it is also unnecessary
There are a number of much
better solutions to the tire
waste crisis. Tell Dixie Waste
Services that reuse and recy-
cling, rubberized asphalt con-
crete, devulcanization,
monofills, and source reduc-
tion, are better, safer ways to
use waste tires.

COMMITTEE SAYS

MAKING FLORIDA

USE CALIFORNIA CAR

STANDARDS

"VIOLATES STATE

CONSTITUTION"


A legislative committee
declared Monday that
the Governor Crist's un-
popular proposal to en-
slave Floridians to Cali-
fornia's "green" regula-
tions violates the State
Constitution by delegat-
ing enforcement to an-
other state.

The committee action
does not kill the rule. It
can be recommended to
the Legislature by the
DEE

"The vesting of authori-
ty in a California official
to make decisions that
would be automatically
enforceable under Flori-
da law constitutes a vio-
lation," the staff report
stated. "By adopting a
rule that incorporates by
reference numerous Cal-
ifornia regulations,
some applicable to Flori-
da and some not, DEP
has made it practically
impossible to determine
with certainty which
provisions apply"


The rule is backed by
the Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection,
bitt car manufacturers
are fighting it, tooth and
nHil.


DiXIE COUNTi'YIAS BEEN "

FOOD AND SHELTER
NATIONAL BOARD PROGRAM

Dixie county has been chosen to
receive $8876.00 to supplement
emergency food and shelter pro-
grams in the county.

The. selection was made by a Na-
tional Board that is chaired by the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency and consists of represen-
tatives from The Salvation Army;
American Red Cross; United Jew-
ish Communities; Catholic Chari-
ties, USA; National Council of the
Churches of Christ in the USA;
and, United Way of America. The
Local Board was charged to dis-
tribute funds appropriated by
Congress to help expand the ca-
.pacity of food and shelter pro-
grams in high-need areas around
the country.

A Local Board made up of the
Mayor, elected county officials, lo-
cal representatives of several
charities and a cross-soction of
the population will determine how
the funds awarded to Dixie Coun-
ty are to be distributed among the
emergency food and shelter pro-
grams run by local service agen-
cies in the area. The Local Board
is responsible for recommending
agencies to receive these funds
and any additional funds available
under this phase of the program.

Under the terms of the grant from
the National Board, local agen-
cies chosen to receive funds
must: 1) be private voluntary non-
profits or units of government, 2)
have an accounting system
3)practice nondiscrimination, 4)
have demonstrated the capability
to deliver emergency food and/or
shelter programs, and 5) if they
are a private voluntary organiza-
tion, they must have a voluntary
board. Qualifying agencies are
urged to apply.

Dixie County has distributed
Emergency Food and Shelter
funds previously with United
Christian Services of Dixie Coun-
ty, Inc. participating. This agency
was responsible for providing
mortgage or rent payments for 27
families, and utility payments for
17 families in 2008.

cies interested in applying for
Emergency Food and Shelter
Program funds must contact
Martha Jane Osteen at PO Box

Church News

Today was an especially
Blessed Day at Faith. Our
crowd was not as large as it
usually is, but the Spirit
was moving among us and
we felt the presence of the
Lord in our midst.

Bro. Jackie delivered two
good messages, the special
music was very special as
usual and it was just a
great day If you missed ei-
ther service, you truly
missed a blessing.

We had visitors and we
want them to know that
they were truly a blessing
to us. We pray that our peo-
ple made you feel welcome
and loved. If you are look-
ing for a church home, we
invite you to share ours,
and if you were just pass-
ing through, we invite you
to stop in and worship with
us anytime.

Lots of our folks were out
sick and we ask you to re-
member them in your
prayers this week., Some
are in the hospitals and
need our prayers.

Our hearts go out to the
ones who lost loved ones to-
day and we pray that God
will touch them and fill
that void with His love as
only He can do. Just re-
member to pray for the
sick, the bereaved and espe-
cially the lost in the coming
week.

Next Saturday night will be
the Associational Sing at
Mt. Nebo Baptist Church.
Come join us for that and
God will bless you for it.

Until we meet again, may
