Emergency Ser-

Tim Alexander
told County
Commissioners
Thursday
evening that the
safety of Dixie
County citizens
was placed at
risk by the
Progress Ener-
gy's slow re-
sponse time to
an accident on
June 16th. A
truck wrecked
on U.S. in Cross
City in.front of
the Dixie Realty
building, taking
Qut power lines
and shutting
down "all four
traffic lanes on '
U.S. 19."
S The tn
Alexander said
that dispatch staff
had extreme difficulty con-
tacting Progress Energy's
"Life Safety Line" and that
in frustration, he himself di-
aled the line at 21:50. It took
until 22:20 before anyone got
an answer on the line, and
",at that time Progress Ener-
gy could not verify how long
Sit would take to get a truck
on scene." At 22:40, dispatch
got a call saying that they
would have an ETA shortly,
that they could not find a
truck that was on duty
Alexander said, "When it
takes one hour and seven
minutes just to get an
ETA....my displeasure in
how they do'business is
right up there with Mr. Cas-

Dead fish deserve respect?

According to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
(PETA), the practice of "fish-flinging" is disrespectful and
should be outlawed, or at least relegated to the subject of
crude jokes on the Dave Letterman show.

Fish-flinging is the practice of...are you ready for this?
Flinging fish! That wasn't too difficult now, was it? It seems
that fish are being flung indiscriminately at the Pike Place
Fish Market in Seattle, Washington. The fish are decapitated
and eviscerated (sounds more gruesome than "cleaned"; .
PETA ought to like that). And the people who engage in, this
cruel sport are known as "fishmongers."

Specifically, the fishmongers toss the headless fish to one an-
other while crowds of voyeuristic spectators enjoy the bar-
baric spectacle. (I apologize for this graphic description, but
the public needs to be aware that this outrage is going on!) A
PETA representative explained that, "Killing animals so you
can toss their bodies around for amusement is just twisted!"

Not only is this gruesome practice going on at a fish market,
plans are reportedly underway to stage a "flying'fish" exhi-
bition at an upcoming veterinarians conference in Seattle.
PETA is considering staging a protest at this event, though it
appears that no celebrities have volunteered to show up
/ naked for the occasion, as some have done in support of past
PETA protests. .

Since the focus of PETA's objection to fish-flinging lies in
-the fact that it is disrespectful.to the deceased fish, some
have questioned whether dead fish are deserving of the sort
of respect we give dead people, or even deceased pets. It has
even been suggested that, once the fish has been caught, the
game is pretty well over for it anyway, so what's the differ-
ence if its carcass,gets tossed around before it goes in the,
frying pan? How insensitive!

A compromise of sorts would be to toss live fish around be-
fore returning them to the pond, river, ocean or whatever.
Sort of like catching a fish for the sport of it, maybe taking
a quick picture, then returning the creature:to the wild.
However, defenders of these.aquatic creatures object to the
practice because heartless fishermen actually use hooks to
secure their prey, and they sometimes impale Worms, insects
or smaller fish on these hooks in order to lure their prey
into their fiendish clutches!

What is perhaps even more troubling is a PISATeport that
the President of the United States--Barack Hussein Obama--
not only killed a fly during a televised interview, he actually
used his foot to shove the corpse out of his immediate pres-
ence: When our president sets this sort of example, we can
hardly expect more civilized behavior from the populace!

No doubt, this disrespect for departed fish, insects and other
creatures is due to tlhe coarsening of our culture. After all,
we raise chickens, hogs and cattle for no reason whatsoever
but to turn them into food. And this food is actually not good
for us! Any vegan (that's a vegetarian who has achieved a
higher degree of purity) will tell you that soybean flour
makes a very acceptable substitute for animal flesh, Just
think how happy and healthy you would be if you never pol-
luted your body with fat and cholesterol-laden meats!

Now, if you simply cannot stand to go on a vegetarian diet,
even though you support PETA's objectives, I would recom-
mend that you consider road-kill for your main course. That
way, you will in no re-
spect be responsi-
ble for the ani- U
mal's demise. R


On the other hand.
you would be de-
priving the buz-
zards of their sus-
tenance, so I ex-
pect PETA would
object to eating
road kill, too.

Kathy, live from Tehran, and (gasp!) unplugged


Remember that thunderstorm we had Thurs-
Sday afternoon? I was at the library for our
fiber group when it hit and we noticed the
hail bouncing off of the library windows. I grabbed my
camera and went outside (being an idiot, don't you know)
and started taking pictures of it. Fortunately, Cindy Bellot
has more sense than I do, and one big thunderclap went ka-
blam! and she ushered me inside for safety Little did I
know that while I was playing Weather Channel Reporter,
that self-same storm was at my house, frying my Hughesnet
modem.

It took me a while to figure out what it was, and about six
hours on the phone with "Bob" from India, plugging and un-
plugging, booting and rebooting, before he'd admit that it
was fried. So, in just 5-7 "short" business days, I should
have a new one, at no charge. Cool. Then it hit me: seven
days with no internet? OMG, what will I do? I'll tell you
what I'm doing. I AM. FREAKING. OUT.

Not having instant, 24-hpur a day access to the information
superhighway makes me feel like I am walk-
ing around with one arm tied behind my
brain. I, feel like I have a box over my head; I Mean n
feel like I've lost one of my vital senses. Fifty naturally dilv
times a day I think of something that I need (1) Those who

It's time for me to admit it: my name is Kathy these two
and I have an internet addiction. (Hi, Kathy!) every one w

I'm cut off from the world. Literally. One of
the things I've been doing over the last week mey will
is hanging out on Twitter, watching the Iran-
ian Revolution ufifold. When I joined Twitter,
even my daughter Casey played with it a while and said, "I
don't get it, what are you supposed to do with it?" She
dropped it. But I found watching thousands of strangers
talking to each other fascinating. Without Twitter, the Iran-
ian Revolution would most likely never have happened.

It started in bits and bytes. A few messages here,.and there,
about gatherings in Iran and the police crackdown. Nobody
in the mainstream media was paying attention. Twitterfolk
kept telling each other, "Re-tweet this! We'll make them pay
atte ntion!'#cnnfaiL CNNfail was a pretty popular hashtag
in those early days. (Ahashtag is just a way of categorizing
messages so that they're easy to find.) People started tinting
their pictures green to show support for the protesters. We
all changed our locations to Tehran to make it harder for the
Iranian government to track the bloggers who were keeping
the stories alive. American college students and geeks
stayed up all night, setting up I.P addresses that the Iranian
students could use to access the internet as the Iranian gov-
ernment shut them down, one by one.

It became sort of a community; as people just tried to help
each other. Republicans, democrats, people from all over,
Germany, Mexico, everybody, just trying to find one more
way to get the message out and to keep the Iranian bloggers
online for one more hour. Finally, even CNN picked up the
story after enough people got killed and hurt to make it
"newsworthy," I suppose. The news coverage couldn't give
you the immediate feel that Twitter does. It's one thing to.
hear a news anchor saying something like "Violence escalat-


Bondage is the normal

human condition

History confirms that
bondage or enslavement is
the normal human condi-,
tion. Our American "experi-
ment" is an exception.

Our founders proclaimed the
rights of the individual to be
derived from "Nature's Cre-
ator" rather than granted by
any ruler. They limited our
government so that it served
the people and was responsi-
ble to them. They derived
the rights of the government
from the consent of the
governed. Each individual
was set free to seek his for-
tune and, should he fail, to
try again or throw himself
upon the charity of his
neighbors.

Our founders, in their let-
ters, expressed concern that
corrupt politicians aided by
apathetic citizens would lead
the nation back to human
bondage. Were they to rise
up from their hallowed
graves and view America to-
day, they would be shocked


and greatly saddened. Free-
dom and individual liberties,
as.they knew them, have giv-
en way to dependency, igno-
rance and apathy Individual
responsibility, discipline
and ambition have given way
to a sense of entitlement for
a large segment of voters
who feel victimized by com-
petition and freedom it-
self.

The founders might ruefully
ask: Do Americans of 2009
deserve to be citizens of this
exceptional nation we found-
ed? Do they no longer ap-
preciate its greatness, their
freedoms and opportunities
denied citizens elsewhere?
Why have they not defended
their rights against serfdom
to the federal government?
What became of their
courage and self-sufficiency?
What became of accepting
responsibility for one's
choices and actions? Has
America become A nation of
self- indulgent, whining cow-
ards?

Maybe President Obama and
his cult-like supporters have
it right after all. Perhaps we
have become a nation of

ed today in Tehran as the government cracked down on pro-
testers," and it's a totally different experience to read a
"tweet" from @Persiangirl that says "OMG, they're throw-
ing the students out of the upper dorm windows. My broth-
er is there. Plz pray for us."

The Iranian government tried to stop it. They set up fake
Twitter accounts, and had moles in the #iranrevolution
feeds posting fake information and propaganda. They were
almost instantly rooted out, and placed on posted lists of
people to shun. Iran tried cutting off the telephones, the in-
ternet, cell phones...but the tech-savvy kids, weaned on
Facebook and Flickr, worked around them and sent their
photos and videos out into the ether in the hopes that some-
body would watch. The world is watching now, and the mul-
lahs can't stop it. The oppressive Iranian regime is being re-
strained by the freedom that technology gives its people.
For the most part,.Iran is using water cannons and tear gas
instead of bullets. Without Twitter and the worldwide atten-
tion it achieved, I suspect Iran would have committed a mas-
sacre that would have made Tiananmen Square look like a
Chinese square dance.

Big Government doesn't like freedom.
They don't like it when the "rabble" are
able to communicate, to share informa-
tion and to coordinate. That's why
they're so hot to control the internet, cell
phones, and the airwaves. That's why
they like the Fairness Doctrine. That's
why Obama is always whining that FOX
news exists and why Bush so hated the
New York Times. ABC, NBC and the oth-
ers are BHO's lackeys; they jump at his
command. They produce his infomer-
cials and propaganda. FOX mocks their
boot-licking and calls it what it is: media
corruption. Governments HATE to be
mocked. Freedom of speech and of
thought disrupts their sense of control.


"'m4 U ., f -u"a I suspect that's the reason Obama was so
Declare themseles, slow to put out any statement of support
-Thomas Jeff eson for the protesters: given a choice, he'd
rather deal with the existing dictatorship
than the hordes of everyday Iranian folk, standing up for
some measure of freedom. Obama and the mullahs speak
the same language that all government does. The language
of control, of suppression, and of pacification of the
"sheeple." Big Government says, "Life is too hard for you.
We'll give you everything you need; we'll take care of you.
We'll provide your health care, your pension, your job...we'll
take care of your babies with 'free' day care, we'll educate
your children to be the kind of citizens we want, we'll even
feed them 'free' lunch, you just-be good little sheelp, send us
your tax money, watch television and don't think to- much."
Above all, don't rock the boat or ask questions: We think
we're free because we get to vote which pack of wolves is in
charge this election cycle. Some of us will be at Tea Parties
on July 4th, standing up for OUR freedom here in the U.S..
Most of us will be home, sitting on the couch, or grilling
ribs, enjoying the liberty we're too lazy to keep.. The majori-
ty of us are sheeple, indeed.

I may be cut off from the Twitterverse and from real cover-
age of what's going on in Iran this week, but I support the
people there who are willing to stand and possibly die for
freedom. I support the 20-something guy I saw in the green *
GAP tee shirt with only his Nokia cell phone as a weapon,
standing up against the dark forces of religious oppression
and demanding that his country join the 21st century The
American Government is willing to stand safely on the side-
lines and wait for it to be over so they can cut deals with the
victors. Luckily, the "common folk" online are ready and
willing to help the cause of freedom, wherever it is found.


losers, and incompetents.
Poorly educated by our pub-
lic schools, lacking in confi-
dence, discipline and
courage, many no longer be-
lieve they can work hard,
compete and be successful.
To them it makes sense, as
Obama suggests, to have the
government take money
from productive citizens (the
ones who are derided as
greedy, uncaring and im-
moral) and use it to help
out the rest.

One wonders what will hap-
pen when Congress raises
taxes on the producers.of
wealth to the level where
they no longer have an in-
centive to work and support
the country Many will re-
tire. Some will relocate busi-
nesses to wherever there is
more economic freedom.
Those who must remain in
America and have not accu-
mulated the wealth to
retire will find ways to
spend less and work less.The
American standard of living
will fall. As always, those on
the bottom rungs of the
economic ladder (clamoring
for "hope" and "change")
will suffer the most.

Unless the laws govern-
ing economics un-
changed over the past
two thousand years -
are wrong, this admin-
istration's move to man-
S age the economy will
fail. Miserably The na-
tion and the people will
bethe
worse for it. There will
be more poverty, more
pain and renewed calls


for "change." Historically,
the "change" is ultimately to
dictatorship of
some sort with loss of indi-
vidual freedoms. Germany,
for example, was an intellec-
tually vibrant nation with
representative government
before socialism and eco-
nomic collapse gave rise to
national socialism (Nazism).
We delude ourselves who
think this cannot happen in
America.

Can seizure of the economy
and most other aspects of so-
ciety by the "governing
class" be reversed? Is there a
Ronald Reagan out there
who can speak the truth
about government in a fash-
ion understood by
all as he did in the dismal
Carter years? Probably not.
The task falls on lesser tal-
ents, yours and mine. We
must speak out and fight
against the taking of our

.Peregrine falcon delisted as an
endangered species

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) approved re-
moval of the peregrine fal-
con from the state's list of
endangered species on
Wednesday.

"Today is a time to cele-
brate peregrine falcons,"
said Rod-
ney Bar-
reto, FWC
chair-
man.
"This is a
tremen-
dous suc-
cess sto-
ry."

Through
the ef-
forts of. ';
wildlife
managers
and indi-
viduals,
the pere-
grine fal-
con has
become one of the best ex-
amples of how wise conser-
vation practices can assist a
species to come back from
the brink of extinction.
DDT usage in the United
States nearly wiped out en-
tire populations of birds
decades ago, including the
peregrine falcon. Fortunate-
ly, before the peregrine fal-
con became extinct, the use
of DDT was eliminated.

As a result of pesticide reg-
ulations and captive breed-
ing-and-release efforts, the
peregrine falcon made a
dramatic comeback from
precipitously low numbers
in the 1970s. Peregrine pop-
ulations dropped from
about 20,000 birds prior to
the 1940s to 650 birds in
1965. Of the two popula-
tions of peregrine falcon
that pass through Florida,;
there are now at least 3,100,
breeding pairs. The U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service
delisted the species in 1999.

Whenever the FWC delists a
species, a management plan
must be in place, with
guidelines to ensure the
continued conservation of


the species. The Commis-
sion also approved the final
Peregrine Falcon Manage-
ment Plan on Wednesday.
The peregrine will still be
protected by the federal Mi-
gratory Bird Treaty Act.

"The peregrine falcon is a
success story showing what
well-coordinated conserva-
tion can accomplish for a
species," said Robin
Boughton, the FWC's pere-
grine fal-
con man-
agement
plan
leader.
"The
manage-
ment plan
ensures
the con-
tinued
success of
peregrine
Falconss"

The ap-
proved
plan ac-
.. knowl-
edges that
pesticide contamination is
an ongoing threat through-
out much of the wintering
range of the species be-
cause many South and Cen-
tral American countries
lack the pesticide regula-
tions that have been enact-
ed in the United States.
SWhile peregrines do not
breed in Florida, they are
commonly seen in the state.
Many peregrines migrate
through in the fall and
some may stay here during
the winter. The plan's objec-
tives stress the need to en-
sure coastal habitats, par-
ticularly those in the mid-
dle Keys, are preserved.

The Commission will con-
sider allowing peregrines to
be used for falconry when it
meets aggin in September
in Howey-in-the-Hills.

The, peregrine falcon is
known as the world's fastest
bird, averaging 25-34 mph
during normal flight and
reaching speeds in excess of
150 mph during dives for
prey, which include doves
and ducks.

FWC makes changes
to captive wildlife
rules

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) approved
changes to laws regulating
captive wildlife during its
SJune meeting at Crystal Riv-
er.

The FWC approved the new
rules after hearing staff rec-
ommendations and gather-
ing input from 46 individu-
als who requested an oppor-
tunity to address Commis-
Ssioners on the subject dur-
ing Wednesday's session.
That's on top of four ypars
of the FWC gathering input
from individuals, groups
and government agencies.

S Some participants in the
meeting expressed concern
about compliance with fi-
nancial responsibility re-
quirements enacted by the
Florida Legislature and
whether they are adequate.
FWC'Chairman Rodney Bar-
reto said the agency will
work with the Legislature to
revise requirements if ap-
propriate.

Commissioner Ron Berg-
eron said the new size re-
qquirerents for captive
wildlife facilities will elimi-
nate future issuance of per-
mits to inadequate facilities.
However, he indicated he be-
lieves the permit application
process should require noti-
fication of neighbors.

New regulations provide
that U.S. Department of
Agriculture-registered re-
search facilities must main-
tain a detailed research pro-
pos.al and meet the strength'
requirements for cages and
enclosures. The provision
does not include bison kept
for production of meat,
skins or hides, or propaga-
tion. Bison, when kept for


out here, they can do
it.
Quilting is going
on in all the quilts in
the frames. B J has a
third of the Dresden
Quilt done at home.
Dinner was great,
corn chowder, chick-
en, mixed vegetables,
mustard greens, but-
ter beans, corn, green
beans, potatoes; sand-
wiches, salad, water-
melon, cantaloupe
and cup cakes


propagation only, are ex-
empt from licensing and
caging requirements.

Certain wildlife species will
be reclassified from Class II
to Class I, including the
cougar, cheetah, hyena and
aardwolf. Class I designation
means the species is among
the most potentially danger-
ous to humans. Class II ani-
mals are less potentially
dangerous but still repre-
sent a threat to public safety
if not kept in suitable condi-
tions.

A "grandfather clause" in
the rule provides that any-
one possessing Class II
wildlife for personal use will
not have to obtain additional
permits when their animals'
classification changes to
Class I. All Class I wildlife,
except those for exhibition
or sale, must have perma-
nent identification devices
(microchips; photographs of
identifying distinct features,
such as tattoos, etc.).

Jones told Cdmmissioners,~
that.although the new rules
will take effect in August,
the animal owners will have
until Jan. 1, 2010, to comply
with the permanent identifi-
cation requirement.

Certain wildlife species will
also be reclassified from
Class IIIto Class II, includ-
ing the American alligator,
patas monkey, giraffe, okapi,
tapir and certain wild
species of the bovidae (cow)
family.

Wild or domestic hybrids
that are indistinguishable
(having more wild charac-
teristics than domestic)
from the wild animal will be
regulated as wildlife. A per-
mit is requ ired for personal
possession of brush-tailed
opossums and personal pos-
session of wild foxes,
Skunks, bats, raccoons and
white-tailed deer is prohibit-
ed under the new rules.


'The experience require-
ments for Class I and II
wildlife possession have
changed to require docu-
mented experience in caring
for the specific family of the
animal except for crocodil-
ians, which require experi-
ence with animals of the
same biological order. Docu-
mentation of experience for
corporations also have been
clarified; and a U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture license
is a requirement for posses-
sion of Class I wildlife for
exhibition or sale.

Barriers must be in place
when unconfined Class I or
II wildlife are on exhibit to
the public. Also prior writ-,
ten approval from the FWC
is a requirement for certain
Class I wildlife for inciden-
tal contact with the public,
such as when the animals
are under supervision and.
control of the permit holder
or handler but are subject to
spectators touching them.

Animal owners must main-
tain records of animal ac-
quisitions, sales and trans-
fers for three years. Owners
of Class I and Class II ani-
mals must also maintain
records of animals' births
and deaths.

New regulations are in place
for captive wildlife sanctuar-
ies providing lifetime care
for unwanted or informed
captive wildlife. These
sanctuaries must be not-
for-profit, wildlife must be
permanently identified,
and public contact with
such wildlife is prohibited.

Persons possessing per-
forming wildlife that can
no longer perform due to
age or physical condition\
may continue to possess
the wildlife for lifetime
care under the exhibi-
tion/sale license. These
animals must also be per-
manently.identified.

Transportation of wildlife
must be in a cage or enclo-
sure labeled "Live Ani-

mal," and the list of the
number of specimens and
their common and scien-
Stific names must be in the
cab.

A rehabilitation permit is
not a requirement for re-
habilitating nonnative
Species. For rehabilitation
of native wildlife, a time-
line for rehabilitation is
required. The comingling
of sick and injured non-
native wildlife in the same
cage or enclosure with
sick or injured or other-
wise impaired native
wildlife is illegal. Nonna-

Local


District to develop

plan for water supply

LIVE OAK, FL, June 22, 2009,
With northeast Florida
groundwater levels in de-
cline, the region's two water
management districts are
now working together to de-
termine why it's happening
and what can be done to re-
verse the trend.


At their first joint
public meeting,
held in Gainesville
last week, staff


tions of Baker, Columbia,
Bradford, Union and
Alachua counties.

"The drawdown may impact
the health of the natural
systems and future water
supplies in the basin," Car-
los Herd, SRWMD water
supply project manager, told
the audience.


Among those attend-
ing the meeting
were representatives
from local govern-
ments, utilities, re-
gional planning
councils, environ-


from the Suwan l, quier is mental consultants, '
nee River (SR- occuring in a ,and special interest

The basin lies within the

The water supply plan for
the USFRB is scheduled for
adoption by the SRWMD


governing board in Decem-
ber 2010. Once the plan has
been adopted, local govern-
ments iti the basin will have
18 months to incorporate al-
ternative water supply pro-
jects into their comprehen-
sive plans.

The SRWMD also is assess-
ing other water bodies in or-
der to evaluate future water
supply needs. The state's
five water management dis-
tricts are statutorily re-
quired to have plans in place
to meet water supply de-
mands over the next 20
years.

The SJRWMD water supply
plan for the northeast re-
gion is also scheduled for
adoption in December 2010.
The St. Johns and Suwannee
districts will host a series of
joint public meetings to al-
low opportunities for the
public to participate in the
planning process prior to
adoption of the plans.

The next public meeting is
set for July 9. Times and lo-
cations for the meetings will
be posted at www.mysuwan-

Troatl Rers
By Bonnie Wilson
Summer is upon us, the heat
index will only rise. Let's
hope our blood pressure
doesn't! I like to think of cool
running brooks, quiet shady
trails and my best four-
legged buddy. This keeps my
blood pressure in check and
my horse in shape too.
It's all too common for us to
wish for cooler weather in
the summer and warmer
weather in the winter. Mostly'
in Florida we have the best of
both worlds. The tempera-
ture is generally good for
trail riding no matter what
the season..
Levy County Horse
Club (LCHC) is a non profit
organization that is a trail
riding group. We have mem-
bers of all tri county areas
and then some. We ride at
different speeds and on many
different types of horses.
From quarter horses to Paso
Finos, we have a wide range
of taste, and it truly is as
they say; "Beauty is in the
eye of the beholder".
We schedule 2 club
rides a month. However it
has been know for members
to -call on each other in be-
tween our scheduled rides
and gather at an appointed
trail head just for fun. I for
one have never had too much
fun! We camln out mainly in
the fall when the weather is
cooler. Bonfires at a camp
sight are a beautiful sight to
behold. Singing round that
same camp fire gives one an
incredible feeling of being
connected to something pret-
ty powerful. Good friends
who share the same interest
become even better friends.


We also have some
very talented members who
bring their guitars and sing.
Now that is an evening that
you carl not pass up. They do
the picking and we do the
grinning!
LCHC has one (1)
cherished fund raiser that we
do and have done faithfully
for the last nine (9) years.
The Breast Cancer Aware-
ness Ride in conjunction
with Forest Awareness and
Greenways and Trails Month
which is held at Tidewater
Trail Head in Goethe Forest.
This year it will.on Oct 24th.
We work closely with the
Shands Cancer Center and
they make sure our fund
raising monies stay in our
counties to help our neigh-
bors who may have become
victims to this disease. It is a
labor of love that tugs at
your heartstrings and one
that we have been very proud
to be apart of for these past
nine years. Yes it is difficult
these days to come up with
money for most any benefit,
however with the support of
our friends, neighbors, and
local business owners we
manage to make a difference
in our pledge to this cause.
If you love horses,
camp fires, trail rides.
through some of Florida's
most beautiful forest imagin-
able and getting know people
who also share your love, you
should check us out. Take a
look at us on the web page at
www.flahorse.com from there
you can click on Ichc and
drop us a note. We can an-
swer all your questions and
then some. You'll be glad you
did!
d Until the next time,
happy trails!


SPRINGHOUSE
QUILTER'S NEWS

The second week of the 4-H
sewing camp began on Mon-
day with a good group of sec-
ond year sewing 4-H mem-
bers returning to learn more
about sewing and quilting.

With Elaine Faison and.
Anna Gilliam leading the 4-H
group, the young people
started by reviewing the es-
sential parts of the sewing
machine and then it was off
to cutting, sewing and start-
ing a rag edge quilt. The
sewing machines were put to
the test as the young people
worked on the squares to .
make their quilt. The lead-
ers were available for assis-
tance but most of the youth
had complete control of their
sewing machines.

in the Florida Legislature has serious implications to our daily lives and those of our children and grandchildren. I take this
responsibility very seriously as your State Representative.

The 2009 Legislative Session was in a word challenging. The fragile nature of our economy and the shortfalls in our state
revenue have made providing for the needs of our communities difficult. And,frankly, the Legislature missed some opportunities
to reprioritize our spending and run a more responsible, accessible and accountable state government.


While the session provided its share of challenges, it also provided some opportunities. For instance, I was proud to sponsor
successful legislation that:

Protects our agricultural community from the threat of plant pests and disease.
Provides our small and fiscally constrained counties with significant tax relief .
Revises confidentiality laws for clinical psychologists to better protect the public interest

Additionally, I am pleased that the Legislature restored $21 million in library funding that is critical to our small counties, as well
with thefurther development of a $20 million ethanol research project andfacility in our district that is expected to create250 jobs.

I introduced a number of key amendments that improved other bills during the legislative process. I also weighed in on many
important issues through questions and debate on the floor of the House of Representatives.

It is very important to me that my fellow legislators have the opportunity to know and understand our issues and values in
District 10 so they can better understand our rural attitudes. I made it clear that I supported few, if any, new fees or taxes for
my constituency. ,

I want to hear your concers and share information and ideas. Please call or stop'by our legislative offices in Madison,
Chiefland or Tallahassee. '

/ To maintain proper funding for our local law enforcement, fire rescue and Department of Corrections employees
V Protect state workers from pay cuts in the budget process
V Allow our school systems the flexibility they need to make it through these tough economic times

THE APPLETON MUSEUM
ANNOUNCES

'ART OF THE

CHOPPER'
EXHIBITION OPENING
OCT. 10


( --
OCALA, Fla.) June 17, 2009
The definition of a chop-
per is any conceptualized,
one-of-a-kind, handmade
motorcycle of exceptional
design and originality, and
that perfectly describes the
30 ostentatious yet beautiful
custom bikes that will be
presented in "Art of the
Chopper" at the Appleton
Museum of Art of Central
Florida Community from
Oct. 10 to Jan. 10, 2010.
Admission tickets for the
exhibition go on sale July 15
at the museum and online at
www.AppletonMuseum.org.
Prices are $12 for adults; $10
for seniors 55 or better; $8
for members, youths age 10-
18 and college students with
ID; $5 for children 3 to 9.
Children under 3 are free.
For information call the Ap-
pleton at 352-291-4455 or vis-
it
www.AppletonMuseum.org.

"Art of the Chopper" strives
to present motorcycles as
both sculptural art and arti-
facts of American culture.
During the exhibition, the
Appleton will showcase 30
choppers, each accompanied'
by a series of photographs
and display panels featuring
background information on
the bike's builder. Among
the well-known names will
-be Indian Larry, Rick Fair-
less, Jerry Graves, Ron
SFinch and Mike BrowAvn.A
series of special events and
motorcycle-related pro-
grams will be presented at
the museum on weekends
during the three-month ex-
hibition.

As the first collection of
custom motorcycles created


explicitly as contemporary
art, "Art of the Chopper" re-
cently concluded its debut at
the William J. Clinton Presi-
dential Library in Little
Rock, Ark. Director Terry
Garner said, "These motor-
cycles are, when curated
correctly, works of contem-
porary art. We fondly refer
to them as
Rolling
Sculp-
tures be-
cause the
'chopper'
is a uniquely American
icon, a creation that de-
mands remarkable design
and engineering while clear-
ly expressing the artistry
and personalities of their
builders and owners."

In addition to "Art of the
Chopper," guests will enjoy
the Appleton 's permanent
collections of European,
American, Asian and Con-
temporary art and artifacts.
Regular daily admission to
the Appleton Museum,

of the Chopper," is $6 for

better and students 19 and
over; $3 for youths 10-18; and

dents, children 9 and under,

nel and their immediate
families.

What an awesome week of
VBS! Pastor Holden said this
is the best year ever! Thank
you, thank you for all the peo-
ple who decorated the great
"Crocodile Dock" theme! You-
all did a great job with a life-
like swamp atmosphere! Every
child's journey in VBS was
greatly enhanced last week!
We appreciate Garry Lamb
teaching our VBS children
this year! A special thank-you
to Freddie Hires and her many
helpers working in the
kitchen. We ate some dero-li-ci-
ous food: her homemade bis-
cuits, chicken-n-dumplins',
spaghetti, highlighted with
salads, vegetables and fried
chicken! It was fried by the fa-
mous FIDDLERS RESTAU-
RANT, owned by Jim and
,Joyce Hunt down on Riverside
SDrive!

We especially "thank you"
for frying those 200 pieces of
chicken for all of us to enjoy!
We wish to express our
thanks to Mason's Market for
three bags of chicken! All our
church folks that gave of their
love, time, energy for Bible
stories, games, cooking, arts &
crafts, teaching, songs and
service! The children collect-
ed over six hundred dollars
for our Missionary David Mc
Elwains serving in Alaska!
SThank you kids! And thanks
to our ladies for the yummy
finger foods and desserts for
our family night too! May
GOD bless you as you have
faithfully served HIM!


Some will be going for tests
this week, some for surgery
and we ask that you remem-
ber them all in prayer. God
knows who they're and
what their needs are, so all
we need to do is pray for
them.

We look forward to seeing
you again next week.


Praise GOD for our Christ-
ian dads, grand-dads, yes our

NEW PROSPECT,

BAPTIST NEWS

Thanks to the blessings of
God and the work of many
dedicated people last
week, our VBS was a re-
sounding success, as more
souls were added to God's
Kingdom. All reports in-
dicated a joyful time of
seeking, learning,
andgood
fellowship'
throughout the
Sweek..

SOn Sunday,
it was
'good to be
in God's
house on
another '^
Father's Day,
listening to the songs of
praise and worship so ably
done by our choir and
musicians, and the forth-
right preaching of God's
Word by Bro. Billy The
latter chose his text from
Luke 15:11-16 and admirably
portrayed the
abundant love of another
father who lived many,
many years ago.


Randall Brewer, Vince
Marchant and Mike Blakely!
Our specials in music for our
Father's Day were: Gilbert Ma-
cias from Miami playing a
medley of beautiful hymns on
.the piano, what a blessing we
received both the morning and
evening service. Also Harry
Gatlin singing:" I Want To
Stroll Over Heaven With You."
In loving memory of the dads
we have loved and lost, I sang:

Can!" JUST A THOUGHT: Par-
ents; do not merely spend time

you see the goodness in
someone, you see God:"

He is also very strong in his
belief that forgiveness is a
key component to a life of
faith and redemption, even
amidst the profiteering and
fraud that seems to run ram-
pant in the marketplace.

"You cannot get into heaven
with hate in your heart," he
said. "You see, if some peo-
ple would turn down the
hate and exercise love, we
can overcome. The first
thing people should do is
learn how to forgive one an-
other."


About Joel George

Joel George was born in
Lancaster, South Carolina
and comes from a family
with 10 sisters and brothers.
His journey that led him to
explore his relationship
with God began when he fell
out of a tree while at work.
He hopes that others can
take his cue and be open to
finding God the way he did -
without warning, and with
absolute joy

lished lawn and landscape
would only be allowed to wa-
ter once weekly during the

In either case, landscape ir-
rigation would not be per-
mitted between the hours
of 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
S Conservation for all
users: Users in each type of
water use class would need
to implement a water con-
servation plan.

Implementation of alter-
native water supply: This
would allow District staff
to recommend or require
large water users to imple-
ment alternative water sup-
*ply when it is feasible. Al-
ternative water supplies
are necessary where water
sources are inadequate to
meet demands over the
next 20 years.
S Permit duration and
five-year review: This
would give District staff
better criteria for establish-
ing permit duration. It
would also provide a five-
year review of the permit
to ensure better compli-
ance.

The public will have 21
days after the proposed
rules are published to
object or request a
hearing.

The proposed rules may be
obtained by contacting Lin-
da Welch, Rules Coordina-
tor, SRWMD, 9225 CR 49,
Live Oak, FL 32060. You
may also call 386-362-1001 or
email lgw@srwntd.org.
