If you happened to ride by
the football field late in'the
evening this past week, you
probably wondered what
was going on, and I'm sure
you could hear the noise a
few blocks away All the ex-
citement was coming from
the Freedom Fest revival.

Eddie James Ministries de-
livered the word during the
first part of the week, then
Pastor Shaun Campbell
from Ohio
took over
for the rest
of the
week. Fun "
was had by
all, as over
50 people
were
saved, and
dedicated
their lives
to the
Lord.

Thursday
night's
crowd had
to be the
biggest as
we had a
special '
guest
speaker.
Most of the crowd was
decked out in orange and
blue as the special guest
was Florida Gators Quarter-
back Tim Tebow. Timmy de-,
livered a very powerful and


meaningful message. Pastor
Shaun Campbell delivered
very powerful messages and
stayed as long as he needed
to, as people were being
moved, touched, healed and
saved during the week.

The Revival was over as
soon as it started it seemed,
and the Freedom Fest team
is looking to keep this go-
ing, as they are looking to
start having meetings and
plan more special events
such as the Freedom Fest, to
keep God's
word out
there, to let
everyone
know that
God is in
deed in
charge.
Thanks to
everyone for
w putting this
., on, and
putting in
the count-
less hours
and the time
it took to get
this going.

M'' Thanks to
OW Those who
had the vi-
sion for it,
and those
who prayed that the Lord
would bless us with such a
great .event!

Celebrity in perspective

Last Thursday began with the untimely death of Farrah
Fawcett among the top news stories on a day when North
Korea and Iran were saber-rattling big time with the nuclear
weapons they have or are working on, the economy isn't get-
ting any better and what's happening in Washington is like-
ly to make it worse.

I have no problem with that. Farrah was an admirable per-
son, especially in the context of today'scelebrity entertain-
ers. And her death from cancer at age 62 did not crowd
everything else out of the news cycle.

Alas, the day was hot over before the late Farrah Fawcett
would be reduced to an asterisk by virtually every news out-
let in the country. The transition began with the news that
singer/pop star Michael Jackson had been rushed to a hospi-
tal. Not long thereafter, the word reached us that Jackson
had died of "unknown" causes, though we soon learned it
was likely that drug abuse was at least a contributing factor.

By the time you read this, a lot more of the details surfound-
ing Jackson's death will have been made public, so there's no
point in pursuing the matter at greater length here. However
I believe it is important that we consider the extent to which
this unfortunate matter dominated the news for at least 48
hours, with coverage abating gradually since but by no
means getting scarce, let alone going away

Even FOX News, which I expected to cover the story but in a
more rational manner than the major networks, put every-
thing else on the back burner to drag out every available de-
tail of Jackson's demise. We expect a certain amount of rep-
etition as coverage of a major story unfolds, but this was
getting ridiculous.

While I don't
doubt that some
S will disagree
te with me, I don't
t h in k Michael
Jackson was the
soirt of person
who) deserved
the adulation
usually re-
set~%,dbfor the
wo (thiest
among us, and
not just the
ones who sell
the most
records. It is
true that, in 2005, Jackson was charged but later acquitted of
child molestation; but beating this rap also appears to have
cost him a lot more than even the best lawyers in the land
would have charged. I'm not necessarily saying that the
prosecution's star witness was bought off, but I'm not con-
vinced that Jackson's fondness for young boys was of a
wholesome nature. I'd certainly never have allowed any kid
of mine to go on an overnighter to Neverland, and I can't
help wondering what kind of parents would, though obvi-
ously some did.

While Jackson was having his legal problems, that got plen-
ty of media coverage. Too much, perhaps, but at least it was
not 24/7 and it didn't crowd everything else out of the pic-
ture. The last I recall anything to equal the coverage of Jack-
son's death was the 9/11 terrorist attack in 2001, and the last
individual whose demise rated this much coverage was in
1968, when Martin Luther King was assassinated. And John
F Kennedy's assassination in 1963 provoked sign on to sign
off news coverage, but Kennedy was a US president and
King was the leader of the civil rights movement.

Regardless of how anyone might have idolized him, Michael
Jackson was only an entertainer; and one of somewhat ques-
tionable character at that. I'd say it's about time the media
and the public alike got over it and started paying attention
to the events that are.having a real world impact on our na-
tional security, the economy, and our lives in general.

to take to the fireworks at Stephenson's field. Last year was
my first fireworks out there and it was big fun; Prior to
that, I'd always taken the kids to Steinhatchee. I love the
Steinhatchee fireworks, but Stephenson's is much closer to
home for me and the sand gnats don't nibble off your ex-
tremities while you're there.

Fireworks really are cool, aren't they? Sometimes I wonder,
though, if it wasn't for the fireworks, if Americans would
celebrate July Fourth at all. I can't help but wonder if it
would fall down into the "forgotten holiday" category with
President's Day, Veteran's Day and Memorial Day. Ask the
kid standing next to you what Memorial Day is and the odds
are he'll say, "Huh? I dunno." The patriotic holidays just
seem to have been left by the wayside: an excuse for a day off
or a bar-b-que, nothing more. We know how to do holidays
with presents, or with candy..even long after we've stopped
practicing the religion behind those days...but for most of
us, holidays seem to have lost the "holy" part. We've lost the
sense of celebrating a sacred day; a day with meaning. The
attitude seems to be that if it's not a "commercial" day with
lots of consumer junk to buy, what's the point?


\F Fit st thing: Bob from India lied and my
Hughesnet modem is still not here. This will
be my second weekend with no internet access. I've sort of
gone through the whole grieving process, from denial, then
anger, and now I've sort of settled into a sort of numb accep
tance. It will either come tomorrow or the next day. I have
no control over that. If it doesn't, though, I may just call
Bob and explain to him that I'm going to walk to New Delhi
and feed him his stupid telephone headset in a curry if he
doesn't get me some internet access like, NOW! (OK, I'm los-
ing it, I really am.)

I have to admit I'm getting more done without the internet
to distract me. I finished a pair of socks I was knitting"in
record time and started another. I've been re-reading The
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, and I've been
watching more CSPAN and FOX News than is probably
healthy for a sane human being. I wrote my brother a long
letter. I gave my sister some badly-needed time off and took
all six kids for a few days.

I loaded them all up in the Monster Truck The sec
and took them to the movies, to see Up in 3D. will be e m
We were going to see Transformers, but that
thing is like two and a half hours long! In e history
There's no way the little kids could have sat to believe tha
still through that one, even with a bushel bas- by succeed
ket of buttered popcorn. It worked out for the gea
best, I have to.admit. UP was fantastic, be- gh
t ought to
yond my wildest expectations. I don't nor-
mally recommend movies to people, and espe- the day of d
cially cartoon movies, but this one is amaz- acts of deo
ing. It ought

The story has depth that will engage adults,
action and humor for the kids, and to be hon- game
est, I teared up a bit at the end of it. (If you bonfi/rs, am
tell anybody, I will SO deny it.) The story one end o
was sweet, and a little sad, and not childish at
all. There is not a half-naked, impossibly
skinny long-haired Disney princess singing
syrupy songs to forest creatures or an ounce
of crude, adult potty humor in it. The stars
are a grumpy old widower, a short fat kid, and a dog. It's
brilliant. Borrow somebody's kid if you feel weird about go-
ing to watch "cartoons" and go see it. You won't be disap-
pointed. End of commercial.

On the way home from the movies, we stopped at Publix and
I did what I always do when I get the chance to stop there: I
loaded up on imported cheeses. They say every woman has
her price, and unlike most women, for me it's not chocolate,
- it's big fat hunk of blue-veined Stilton or the cheddary ,
yumminess of, Double Glouchesten-rPublix is way too expen-
sive for normal groceries: I'd rather shop locally anyway.
But for cheese....it's like....cheese heaven. Whenever we do
family parties or get-togethers, I'm always in charge of the
cheese tray. It takes a long time to cut up all that lovely
dairy goodness, especially when it goes something like "a
piece for the tray, a piece for me, a piece for the tray, a piece
for me." Also, it's a little known fact'kept secret by genera-
tions of cheese experts worldwide, but the last piece--the
piece that's too small or too awkwardly shaped and is left
over after you're done cutting up the big chunk--it has ab-
solutely NO calories. It's true. Therefore, you must eat that,
too.

I'm trying to save this cheese for the fourth of July I'm go-
ing to do sort of a picnic with cheese, crackers, and drinks


Take a look at the quote by John Adams
over there to your left. You'll notice he
only uses the word "celebrate" once, and
the word "solemn" twice. The Founding
Fathers understood what a serious, mon-
umental thing it was to finally achieve
our freedom. Sadly, a thing that we "suc-
ceeding generations" seem to have forgot-
ten for the most part. (You'll also notice
that we celebrate on the fourth instead of
the second. That's because the Declara-
tion of Independence was adopted by a
committee on the second, but wasn't sent
to the legislatures of the States until the
4th.) Americans are up for the party and
the fireworks, we just don't remember
what the party isfor anymore. We're in-
t6llectually and physically lazy. We don't
know our own history, and we don't care
to learn it. It's "too hard." We have our
republic, like Ben Franklin said, if we
"can keep it."


Judging from all the stuff I've been watching on the news,
we're not even willing to exert ourselves to do that. We're
allowing our elected representatives to put their party poli-
tics and their re-election interests above our interests.
They're voting us into a permanent economic recession
with this disastrous Cap and Trade bill, for instance, that is
expected to double the prices we pay for gas and electricity
while having almost no affect on the environment. It's a
"green bill'* that really is a "communist red bill" in dis-
- guise...it will regulate every aspect of business and totally
kill off the little bit of economic freedom we have left. And
yes, in case you were wondering, our representative toed the
party line, threw us to the wolves, and voted for it.

John Adams wrote in his diary, "I am but an ordinary
man...yet some great events, some cutting expressions, some
mean hypocrisies, have at times thrown this assemblage of
sloth, sleep, and littleness into rage like a lion."

If the changes that have occurred in this country in the last
few months bother you, if you're ready to throw off the in-
dolence and laziness of habit and "rage like a lion," at the
"hypocrisies" of our government overlords, I can't imagine
a better time. There are Tea Party Protests in Perry and
Bronson on the Fourth. I'll bring the cheese.

DUCT because children will
be attending and we don't
need to show them how NOT

Northern Florida
Perry, FL There will be a
T.E.A (Taxed Enough Al-
ready) party to be. held on the
4th of July at Forest Capital
Park in Perry, Florida, on
U.S. 19 from 10:30 a.m. until
noon.
Hundreds of T.E.A
parties will be held across
America on Independence
Day for the sole purpose of
telling our elected leaders
"WHOA!!! We the people do
not want a $10 trillion dollar
deficit and the future taxes
required to pay for massive
spending." According to TEA
Party organizer, Bob Root of
Perry, "we didn't elect the
folks in Washington to bank-
rupt our children's future.
It's time they listened to the
voices of hard-working, tax-
paying Americans."
The TEA Party in
Perry is being held for resi-
dents of Jefferson, Madison,
Suwannee, Lafayette, Dixie,
Levy, and Taylor Counties.
Guest speakers include Paul
Tanner from Indian River.
Mr. Tanner is a Community
Outreach leader for various
faith-based charities. Also,
Apryl Marie Fogel, Second
Amendment advocate and
former staff for the National
Rifle Association's Institute


speak on the importance of
actively defending our Sec-
ond Amendment rights.
Richard Schwab will address
"Small Businesses the
Backbone of America and
Who's Bailing Them Out."
Pastor Jeremy Lundy will
speak about "In God We
Trust the faith upon which
our country was founded."
Penny Staffney will round
out the speakers with why it
is so important to be heard.
According to Penny, "When it
comes to Government action
- SILENCE IS CONSENT."
Music, food, and
plenty of tea will be served.
Everyone is encouraged to
bring a sign expressing their
point of view. Those interest-
ed in participating can visit
the website of http://taylortea-
party.com or call the organiz-
ing committee at 850-584-4404,
850-584-4455, or 850-223-1266 X-
0028.
Local organizers,
Charles Parker and Jan Hop-
kins, summed up the event
best by stating "We want
everyone in North Florida to
celebrate Independence Day
by coming to Perry and mak-
ing your views known. Re-
member "WE THE PEOPLE"
can influence our govern-
ment when we speak out.
United we stand, divided we
fall."

FWC to boaters; divers:
'Be dive-flag aware'
Rob Murphy 26, sur-
faced from the depths of the
Atlantic five miles offshore
of Stuart, enjoying what he
loved best scuba diving. Al-
though he had been diving
for just over a year, he dove
three days a week, accumu-
lating about 400 dives under
his belt by that January 2009
day.
Murphy recalls that
as he was treading water at
the surface, he realized a
boat was heading directly
for him. He tried to swim out
of the boat's path, but the
diver and the boat collided.
Murphy lost both of his legs,
below the knee. "I just hoped
I would live," Murphy said.
Now, he is dedicated to edu-
cating others. Murphy and
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) are on a mission to
make boaters and divers
aware of what a dive flag is
and how it should be used.
In the past five years, 22
divers in Florida's waters
have been killed or injured
by boats. Many of these inci-
dents could have been avoid-
ed had the boaters been on
the lookout for divers-down
flags, or if the divers had
properly displayed the dive
flags to alert boaters to their
presence.
"It's a plague in this
area," Murphy said, speak-
ing of the Palm Beach and
Jupiter area. "There are
divers, charter fishermen,
recreational boaters, all us-
ing the same place. Some are
unaware, and some simply
don't care."
June 27 marks the
beginning of Dive Flag
Awareness Week. Lt. David
Bingham is an FWC watch
commander stationed in


arybocdy


South Florida. He conducts
law enforcement details tar-
geting divers-down flag vio-
lations. He works with Mur-
phy to promote dive flag
awareness.
The law requires
that a vessel display a
divers-down flag whenever
divers or snorkelers are in
the water. The divers-down
flag is red with a white diag-
onal stripe. It must be at
least 20 inches by 24 inches
and displayed at a high point
where it can be observed 360
degrees around the vessel.
When divers are not from a
vessel, a divers-down flag
towed on a float must be at
least 12 inches by 12 inches.
It must have a wire or other
stiffener to hold it open.
Divers and snorkel-
ers must make every reason-
able effort to stay close to
their flag. When they exit
the water, the divers-down
flag must be taken down.
Though Murphy is
not fully recovered and will
forever be haunted by the
day when he lost his legs, his
love of diving has brought
him back to the water. With
prosthetics, he is able to
dive.
"It's my passion nothing
will keep me out of the wa-
ter," Murphy said. "But, I
don't want anyone to go
through what I'm going
through. Just look for divers
and give us some space."
All vessels must
make a reasonable effort to
stay at least 100 feet away
from a divers-down flag
within a river, inlet or chan-
nel. In open waters, vessels
must make a reasonable ef-
fort to stay 300 feet away
from a divers-down flag.
Within those prescribed dis-
tances, a vessel may operate,
but at idle speed.

Dixie County farmer
among award recipients
for
environmental
stewardship by
Suwannee and Santa Fe
River basin farmers and
ranchers

LIVE OAK, June 29, 2009 -
Life around the farm is
about more than plowing
the field and planting crops
these days. Technological
advances to-irrigation and
fertilization help take the
guess work out of crop pro-
duction. And they help save
the environment, too.

Just ask Timmy and Mickey
Tuten, of Madison County
Their farm was one of 26
this-year recognized for en-
vironmental stewardship as
part of the County Alliance
for Responsible Environ-
mental Stewardship
(CARES) program. The
Florida Farm Bureau and
the Suwannee River Part-
nership created CARES to
highlight efforts by farm
owners to improve natural
resource management in the
Suwannee River Basin.

The Tutens are committed
to improving the environ-
ment by implementingBest
Management Practices
(BMPs). BMPs help conserve
water and reduce nitrate
pollution in groundwater
that can result from animal
wastes and from fertilizers
that aren't applied properly
Whether planting potatoes,
tomatoes, onions or squash,
the Tutens use low-pressure
center pivots and drip irri-
gation. The systems not only
help conserve water but are
also cost-effective for the
farmer.

Joel Love, of the Suwannee
River Partnership, said low-
pressure irrigation gives a
more efficient, uniform ap-
plication of water.

"There are less evaporative
losses because you don't get
the mist as with a high-pres-
sure system," Love said,
adding some of the new low-
pressure nozzles simulate
rainfall.

Drip irrigation can also be
used to apply fertilizer. It
spoon feeds the crop near
the root and applies just the
right amount of water and
fertilizer needed. This en-
sures that nitrogen from fer-
tilizers is efficiently used by


water. But not applying
enough water can result in
crops not utilizing fertilizers
that have been applied.
Eventually those fertilizers
will also get washed into the
aquifer.


to put out the next week,"
said Gerald Coggins.
The Tutens and the Coggins
family were recognized at
the 9th Annual CARES din-
ner held at the Dwight
Stansel farm in Suwannee
County on June 25.


Gary Jones of Dixie County was among 26 Suwannee and San-
ta Fe River Basin farmers and ranchers who were recognized for
their superior natural resource stewardship


The Tutens want to ensure
visitors who come to their
farm to pick produce that
they care about the crop and
the land in which it was
grown.

"I see people face to face
every day," said Timmy
Tuten. "When they ride up
and you got a pretty crop, it
sells itself. Participating in
the CARES program, I want
people to know that I care.
That I care about them and
that I'm conscientious in be-
ing a good steward of the
land."


The Coggins
family of Cog-
gins Farms, in
Hamilton Coun-
ty, feels the
same way Man-
aging natural
resources is just
as important to
them as tending
crops. That's
why, theirs, too,
was designated
this year as a
CARES farm.


Other Suwannee and Santa
Fe River Basin farmers and
ranchers that were recog-
nized include the following:
Michael Dukes, Union;
David Echeverria, Levy;
Gary Jones, Dixie; Jack
Meeks, Levy; John Parrish,
Levy; Roland Parrish,
Union; Kelly Philman,
Gilchrist; Don Spradley, Co-
lumbia; James Tallman,
Bradford; Big Trees Planta-
tion, Inc., Alachua; Bud and
Judy O'Quinn, Columbia;
Ross, James and William
Terry, Columbia; Bryan and


"I love drip
Irrigation because
I'm targeting where
I want to water...
You save on
fertilizer and you
save on water."


-TImmy Tuten


A worker man-
ning a machine that fertile:
izes crops can be seen dri-
ving through rows of peas at
Coggins Farms. But it is not
just any sprayer. It's fitted
with GPS equipment which
determines which crops
have already been fertilized
and which ones have been
skipped over.

"It maps the field and if you
overlap, it cuts the nozzles
off," said Mike Coggins.


Mike Coggins of Coggins Farms cuts a fresh tomato from his field tl
was grown by using the method of drip irrigation


the plant so little excess will
be left to enter the ground-
water.

"I love drip irrigation be-
cause I'm targeting where I
want to water," said Timmy
Tuten. "You save on fertiliz-
er and you save on water."
To gauge whether their
crops are getting the right
amount of water, the Tutens
can hook up a laptop to a
soil moisture probe that
reads moisture levels for
certain areas of the field.
They also use portable de-
vices to test moisture levels
anywhere on the farm.
Love said applying the right
amount of water is key
Over watering can wash fer-
tilizers away and result in
nitrate pollution to ground-


"That's a big savings."
Not only is it a savings to
the farmer, it also saves our
waterways and the aquifer.
Love said the more fertilizer
that's put out at one time,
the greater the risk a heavy
rain will come and wash it
into groundwater.
Workers at Coggins Farms
also field test for nitrate con-
centration. All it takes is
just clipping some of the
plants' leaves and sending
them off to a lab. After the
nitrate levels are read, work-
ers know whether they need
to apply more fertilizer or
less.

week and then we prescribe

Fox bites Lake City

resident at LCCC

A fox bit a Lake City resi-
dent early Wednesday on the
Lake City Community Col-
lege campus.

Richard McGlew, 42, was sit-
ting on a bench on campus
near Building 9 when the fox
came up behind him and
grabbed his pant leg, accord-
ing to Capt. Roy Brown, area
supervisor at the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission's (FWC)
Lake City office.

"He attempted to dislodge
the fox and grabbed its tail.
The fox released the man's
pant leg and bit his hand.
The fox wouldn't let go,"
Brown said.

Another student came to Mc-
Glew's aid and attempted to
help dislodge the fox. The
student got McGlew's pock-
etknife and cut the fox's
throat. The animal released
McGlew and ran into the
bushes.

"Columbia County Sheriff's


Deputy Brian Rix was able to
track the fox about 100 yards
into the brush where he
found the fox's body The
sheriff's office called the
FWC, and I went out to re-
trieve the fox," Brown said.

Brown took the fox to the
Lake City Animal Shelter
where it will be held until
the county health depart-
ment can pick it up for test-
ing.

"The animal will be tested
for rabies," Brown said.

The FWC and county health
department officials are
looking for the-student who
came to McGlew's rescue.

"We need to find out who the
Good Samaritan was who
helped. We don't know if he
was bitten or scratched. If
the fox tests positive for ra-.
bies, the man who assisted
Mr. McGlew will also need
treatment," Brown said.

Anyone with information
about the student may call
the FWC's Lake City office at
386-758-0525 and ask for Capt.
Roy Brown or Karen Parker

wife will be teaching inter-
mediate math at no expense
except for supplies; i.e., pa-
per, pencil, folder, HUGE

struction on Mondays from
8:00,AM until 12:01 PM at
the Trail Rider's Club. The
instruction will last approx-


imately one year with a

tem resumes for the 2010
academic year. If anyone is
interested in signing their
child up for the free tutorial
instruction please contact

T roi/ iers
By Bonnie Wilson

Our June trail ride was held
at Ross Prairie State Forest
located in southwestern
Marion County approxi-
mately 18 miles southwest of
Ocala.

Ross Prairie is a diverse
mixture of Florida's natural
communities, which include
longleaf pine, sandhill, oak
hammocks, and freshwater
marshes. These various
ecosystems support wildlife
habitat for species such as;
white-tailed deer, wild
turkey, Florida
scrub jay, bob-
cat, and active
gopher tortoise
population.

The primary
trailhead is lo-
cated on the
northern end of
the forest on
Cross Florida
Greenways
State Recre-
ation and Con-
servation Area.
Camping facili- ..
ties are also .
available at this
site. Hunting is also permit-
ted during designated sea-
sons.

Levy County Horse Club
was delighted with our June
ride at Ross Prairie due to
the non-existence of those
ugly little bugs that some-
times spoils a good trail
ride. Due to the plant life
and vegetation they are vir-
tually non-existence. The fo-
liage growing there is a de-
terrent to those pesky little
flying eating machines that
bit you and your horse. I
won't say I've never seen a
horse fly there but I've
rarely ever been bother.by
anything and that is certain-
ly a big plus on my riding
schedule in warmer climate.

There were about 10 of us
who came out to ride this
particular morning. Riders
up and heading out on the
trail by 9:30 was a great
start. My blue-eyed wonder
horse better know as Dusty,
was eager to start. We head-


Bay scallop season opens
July 1
The recreational harvest
season for bay scallops be-
gins July 1 and continues
through Sept. 10. Open scal-
loping areas on Florida's
Gulf coast extend from the
west bank of the Mexico
Beach Canal in Bay County
to the Pasco-Hernando coun-
ty line near Aripeka.

You can take bay scallops
only within the allowable'
harvest areas. It is illegal to
possess bay scallops while
you're in or on state waters
outside the open harvest ar-
eas, or to land bay scallops
outside the open areas.

There is a daily limit of 2
gallons of whole bay scal-


ed east on the trail through
some beautiful wooded
shady scenery. There were a
few white-tailed deer that
leaped in the near distance
to my enjoyment. What a
marvelous morning this
was. I always find myself in
awe at how beautiful our
state of Florida is. The sky
is always so blue, clouds are
extra fluffy white, trees gen-
tly swaying in the breeze; it
makes me feel humble to be
a small part of this life on
earth as I ride through the
forest.

On this morning I feel a
great connection to my fel-


low riders as we ride
through a narrow trail made
only wide enough for a one-
horse lane. Up a hill, and
down a ravine through some
dense wooded areas and
over several fallen trees,
now this is trail riding!
Dusty and I are doing fine as
we continue heading east.
Despite the temperatures
rising with the morning
quickly leaving us, I feel
comfortable; it seems cooler
in the forest and I'm actual-
ly glad we made it out today.

My best friend Bennie is
ahead of me and she and
her horse Willie want to
take a different path. Per-
haps it's a short cut, but I'm
not sure and I.suddenly no-
tice I've left some of the
group behind. I say to my
friend that she and some of
the others ahead should go
on but that I think that I'll
wait for the rest and just fol-
low the trail. However it
seems that Dusty wants to
follow Willie. I say no and to


lops in the shell or 1 pint of
bay scallop meat per person
during the open season. In
addition, no more than 10
gallons of whole bay scal-
lops in the shell or one-half
gallon of bay scallop meat
may be possessed aboard
any vessel at any time.

You are allowed to harvest
bay scallops only by hand or
with a landing or dip net,
and bay scallops may not be
harvested for commercial
purposes.

Unless otherwise exempt,
you will need a regular
Florida saltwater fishing li-
cense when using a boat to
harvest scallops. If wading
from shore, starting Aug. 1,
you will need a regular

whoa, but Dusty whinny's to
Willie and stomps his front
feet. Humm... he's acting
like a spoiled child that
doesn't get his way. I firmly
say no again and make him
walk in a circle until he
calms down. I again tell him
to whoa and he does, stand-
ing in place as the good boy
I know him to be. So I reach
in my horn bag and give
him a horse cookie, pat his
head and praise him for
stopping when I tell him to
and once more he is my
blue-eyed wonder horse.
Dusty is an 11-year-old white
Tennessee Walker. We have
been partners since he was
four and we have
grown gracefully
together. I could
search the world
over and never
find another like
him.
Now the group
has caught up
with us and
Dusty is ready
and eager to go
again. Down a
hill and around
another corner
of foliage and
over a few more
fallen logs we no-
tice the markers
Essay west as we
head back to the trailhead.
Suddenly around another
bend and off in a shady area
we spot Willie and the rest
of our group which makes
Dusty a happy "trail rider".

Just as quickly we are sud-
denly back at the trailhead
and we all remove the sad-
dles and bridles from our
horses and give them plenty
of water. Ross Prairie pro-
vides a four slot concrete
wash area to hose our hors-
es down from their morning
adventure. I suddenly feel as
though I could use a hosing
down too! But I quickly re-
cover after making sure
Dusty is taken care. We all
gather together at a picnic
bench and table under the
trees with ice cold drinks
and food from home. What a
day, it has been an incredi-
ble one.

Until next time....happy
trails!

The Cool Down Lap:
Logano lucky at Loudon

by Alan Ross
Lucky Logano. Sounds like
some underground gangster
kingpin. But Sunday, in the
reverse of a thug slowly
backing out, guns drawn
with the loot, Lucky
Logano, the racecar driver,
quickly backed in and stole
the Lenox Industrial Tools
301 in Loudon, New Hamp-
shire.

A huge tire mark outlined
the driver's side door of
Joey Logano's Home Depot-
car, a remnant from an ear-
lier scrap in the day's bat-
tles that lay like a tattoo
branded over the 20 car's
sponsor decals. For Logano,
the cylindrical marking will
forever remind him of the
day's unusual and surprise
crowning-the 19-year-old
driving prodigy's first
Sprint Cup win. The New
Hampshire victory was yet
another gift from NASCAR's
biggest spoiler-rain, which
randomly handed the non-
contending Logatialtrip to
Victory Lane. This time it
was Jeff Gordon who was
robbed. The 24 car, far and
away the top performer of
the day, was the natural race
leader, if you were going by
pit stop cycles. Four times
Gordon beat the field on
restarts following cautions,
but the rain, like an un-
wanted party guest, meted
out a different ending, halt-
ing the race after 273 of the
scheduled 301 laps. "Lucky"
Logano, running second be-
hind fellow out-of-cycle com-
petitor, Ryan Newman,
came to the head of the field
when Newman broke off for
gas three laps before the
llth and final caution flag
flew on Lap 266. It was not
the ending that NASCAR
fans wanted to see, regard-
less of Logano's rising pop-
ularity Cheap victories are
a poor substitute for real
racing. Again, the rain tire,
gentlemen.

ROADSIDE RANTS: Both
NASCAR and the IndyCar
series ran afoul of poor


tracks last weekend. Watch-
ing caution flag after cau-
tion flag come out on the
flat, one-mile circuit of New
Hampshire Motor Speedway
raised a valid question:
Should NASCAR be racing
at Loudon? If green-flag rac-
ing is the goal of any venue,
Loudon failed miserably,
producing just two green-
flag stretches of more than
16 laps....The IndyCars took
to .75-mile Richmond Inter-
national,Raceway on Satur-
day night, as viewers got to
witness a dramatic compari-
son between how NASCAR
cars and open-wheel cars
negotiate the same small
tight track. A short two
months ago, the big tanks
were on RIR-one of the
NASCAR drivers' favorite
stops-looking-reasonably
comfortable circumnavigat-
ing the D-shaped oval.
Sharply contrasting
NASCAR's level of relative
physical stability was the
IndyCars' white-knuckling
two-hour effort Saturday
night to keep their land
rockets from flying off the
track. New Zealander Scott
Dixon claimed his third vic-
Story of 2009, his second ca-
reer win at Richmond; and
19th overall to tie Sam Hor-
nish Jr. for most all-time
victories in the series. But
it's difficult not to feel that
IndyCar, which presents an
entertaining race package
for spectators but, like
NASCAR, smothers viewers
with an insufferably long
prerace program, won't be
seeking venues in the future
that better align to the cars'
immense capabilities. RIR,
however, is not one of them.
Compare the fastest lap time
speed of a NASCAR Car of
Today at Richmond-127.131
mph-to that of an-Indy-
Car-167.315-to quickly
size up the gaping differ-
ence. In addition, due to
tight turns and a single rac-
ing line, RIR offers IndyCars
virtually no opportunities
to pass.

4 million fry produced

at

Blackwater this

spring

The staff at the Blackwater
Fisheries Research and De-
velopment Center has been
busy this spring producing
more than 4 million fish for
Florida waters.

Dave Yeager, one of the se-
nior fisheries biologists at
the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
.mission (FWC) facility near
Holt, said the fish include
striped bass, white bass, hy-
brid striped bass and large-
mouth bass. The fingerlings
were either stocked in Pan-
handle waters or taken to
the Florida Bass Conserva-
tion Center in Webster or
the Welaka National Fish
Hatchery in Palatka.

"In the past when we pro-
duced hybrid striped bass
we collected wild white bass
and stripers from our rivers
or lakes, but this past year
we held both species in
tanks at our facility," Yeager
said. "Maintaining the fish
on site saved us significant
time and effort."


Although the emphasis was
mostly on species other than
largemouth bass, Yeager
said the hatchery produced
and stocked 35,000 fingerling
largemouth bass in Lake


Talquin. All of the bass are
tagged with small, metal mi-
cro-tags. He said the micro-
tags will be useful in the fu-
ture for looking at survival
rates.


"The moment we

begin to fear the
opinions of others ana
hesitate to tell the
truth that is in us,
and from motives of

policy are silent when
we should speak, the
divine floods of light

and life no longer flow
into our souls."

BRONSON ANNOUNCES
AGREEMENT WITH OTHER
STATE AGENCIES TO
PROTECT PUBLIC ON
FLORIDA HIGHWAYS.

TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son today announced that yel-
low road signs that read "Pre-
scribed Burn" and "Fire, Smoke
Area" will soon be appearing
along major roadways when a
prescribed burn is taking place.

A revised agreement with
Bronson's Division of Forestry,,
the Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles,
Highway Patrol, and the De-
partment of Transportation
will enable prescribed burners
to place the yellow signs along
highways when warranted.

Bronson emphasized that the
yellow signs should not be con-
fused with the orange "Reduced
Speed, Smoke" or bright pink,
"Reduced Speed" warning signs
that are currently used when
smoke already has reduced vis-
ibility along a roadway.

"The purpose of the new yellow
signs is to let motorists know
that because a prescribed or
controlled burn is taking place
in the area, a shift in wind
could affect visibility" Bronson'
said. "And we also want to in-
form drivers that there's no
need to call 911 because the fire,
is already being managed."

Bronson said drivers should
use caution when they see any
of the prescribed burn or
smoke-related warning signs as
smoke can produce whiteout
conditions almost instanta-
neously with a sudden shift in *
wind direction.

If motorists encounter smoke
on highways, they should slow
down but avoid slamming on
the brakes, turn on low-beam
headlights, leave extra space
between vehicles and turn on
flashers if forced to pull off the
road.

Drifting smoke tends to settle
in low-lying areas after dark,
which is why most smoke-relati
ed accidents occur in the early-:
morning hours. To find out
more about wildfires, pre-
scribed burning and issues re-
lating to smoke on highways,

Richard James Staber Sr., of Old Town, Florida, 76, died peacefully
on Thursday, June 18, 2009 following a cancer related illness, at the

member of the Cross City branch of The Church of Jesus of Lat-
ter-day Saints.

Richard was born in Hollywood, Florida on July 11, 1933 to parents
Court Robert Staber, (who was born on June 10,
1895, in Leiptzig, Germany and died on Oct. 20,
1980 in Old Town Florida) and Matilda Doothy
Ferguson Staber, (who was born on Jan. 25,
1901 in Boston Massachusetts, and died on
Oct. 26, 1969 in Tampa, Florida). They were
-married on Jun 17,1920, in Providence,

dolph William Staber, who died on May 26,
1999, in Dade City Florida. And an older
brother, Robert Joseph Staber, who was born
,on Oct. 12, 1922, in Providence, Rhode Island,
and died on July 19, 1981, in Old Town, Florida.
Richard's older sister, Dorothy Janet Staber Caldwell,
also of Old Town, Florida, was at his side as he passed through the
veil into the spirit world and was reunited with his father, mother,
brothers, and other family members who preceded him to the spirit
world, and were awaiting Richard's return to heaven, to be with
them and a very loving Father in Heaven.

Additional survivors include his loving wife of fifty-three years,
Doris Monzell Tompkins Staber, also of Old Town, Florida, who
was hospitalized at the time of Richard's passing. They were mar-
ried on Sept. 28, 1956, in Tampa, Florida, where they raised their
three children until they retired to Old Town, Florida in 1986. Oth-
er surviving family members include their oldest son, Richard
James Staber Jr., of Orlando, Florida, grandsons Christopher Glen
Staber, and Corey James Staber, and their mother Cynthia Ruth
Siron Staber, all of Tampa, Florida. Richard and Doris Second son,
Robert Edward Staber also resides in Old Town, Florida. Their
daughter, Karen Doris Staber Laube, her husband, David Allen

NEW PROSPECT

BAPTIST NEWS
Once again; it is time for
our annual NPBC River Re-
treat! We will have services
at the church on Sunday
morning, July 5th, and
evening services that day at
Anderson Campground on
the Suwannee River, kicking
off our River Retreat, which
will run July 5th through
Saturday, July 11th. We look
forward to a great week of
Christian fellowship with
family and friends, learning
more about our Lord and
His works, fun on the river,
and good food.

This past Sunday, it was
good to be back in church,
as always. With God's help,
Bro. Billy delivered two
very fine messages and,
during the evening service,
we were treated to some
beautiful playing and
singing by Bro. Buron Rev-
els, who always does an out-
standing job-in his calling.

ployed to those wars. Also
the number of home foreclo-

four times the national' aver-
age! Times are tough for
everyone, but returning
troops and veterans, the
sluggish economy and weak
job market are especially
hurtful to all those that gave

July 2009
by Art Wyckoff
July is officially the first month of SUl
MER, however,-Mother Nature.showed
powers by sending us unusual heat alr(
in June: Lemonade, sweet tea and bottle
water sales are at record levels, as well
fans and AC units despite our deep rec
sion.
Heat and high humidity can have advel
fects on your plants; mainly wilting an
gus growth. On top of these problems,
weeds have been benefitting from our i
ed showers. Oodles of garden pests froi
worms, grasshoppers and beetles to ap
and white flies have been doing their ti
too. As an experienced gardener, you n
keep reminding yourself that irradical
and extermination will NOT happen w
the twitch'of your nose. The key goal s
be to "keep them under control".


Here are a few local reme-
dies. For weeds; try a vine.
gar or citrus juice sprayed,
directly onto the weeds in
the hottest part of the day
Trick is to get 'em when
they are small before they
seed out. For roaches and a
few other creepy crawlers;
try sprinkling dry laundry
soap around the base of your stairs, founda-
tion and shed. Wet down the soap enough to
get it to soak into the sub-soil. Boraxd and
boric acid also work. For whiteflies(now ap-
M- pearing on local crepe myrtles), mix one ta-
her blespoon of non-perfumed dish soap (alco-
eady hol is bad for plants too!) to each gallon of
ed water. Spray onto all the leaves; top and un-
as derneath as well. Repeat the process in 10
es- days to kill the newly hatched larvae.These
are all pet friendly non- toxic ways to keep
them under control.


rse af-
d fun-

m cut

Fungus on rose leaves, African violets and
marigolds are common when humidity is
high. Try watering them from below or at
the ground level instead of applying water
onto the leaves.
What about fertilizing in July? My advice is
to limit your feeding during heat waves.
Just as you and I do not feel too energetic
when it is 95-100 degrees, neither do the
plants. Keep them moist, but be careful not
to over water. Too much water can cause


root rot and other maladies that can lead to ,
disease or plant loss. .E i


Beat the heat with a positive attitude! Set
some fun goals for yourself: add on a new
porch, a swing, a garden bench, a calming
water feature, or maybe even a new / an-
tique rockin chair. Then make some time to
swing, sit or rock as you watch the birds and
butterflies fluttering through your garden.
While you're at it, send up a few thoughts
and prayers for our armed forces as they are
at work protecting OUR freedom so we CAN
celebrate Independence Day.
