Man arrested for Drummond Bank holdup


The Dixie County Sheriff's
office arrested Mark Am-
brose Fisher, age 50, of Old
Town, after the Gainesville
Police Department contact-
ed them and said that they
had a person who wanted to
speak to investigators con-
cerning the recent robber of
Drummond Bank.

The Sheriff's Office arid
FDLE traveled to
Gainesville and spoke to
Fisher. During the conver-
sation Fisher confessed to
robbing the Drummond
Community Bank in Old
Town.

After Fisher was released
from AGH, he agreed to
ride with investigators to
Dixie County and recover
items that were used during
the burglary


Mark Fisher

The bank was robbed on
June 29 around 4:00 pm.
Witnesses reported that a
white male entered the
bank and demanded cash.
The teller provided the cash
to the individual. The wit-
nesses described him as be-
ing approximately six feet
tall, weighing 165 to 185
pounds with


blondish/brown hair. The
suspect was wearing a
white t-shirt with a graph-
ics on the front a rear and
tan shorts, which appear to
have been cargo type shorts
and white tennis shoes. He
also had sunglasses hung in
the neck of the shirt. He
was wearing a white or
light colored cap with a de-
sign on the front.

The DCSO, FDLE, Cross
City police officers and
Cross City Correctional's
K-9 unit searched through
the night to no avail.

Fisher was arrested on the
charges of Bank Robbery
and Grand Theft.

Fisher is currently being
held in the Dixie County
Jail on a $400,000 bond.


Dixie's SHIP has sailed

Need emergency repairs? Don't expect any help from Tallahassee


Dixie County's SHIP pro-
gram was alifeline to elder-
ly and low-income people
who needed a new well, or a
wheelchair ramp, or emer-
gency home repairs. Al-
though Dixie received the
full $350,000 this year, the
program has been ham-
strung by Florida legisla-
tors, who stripped most of
the money out of the trust
fund that was to be used for
low-income housing and
spent it for other purposes.
Funds for emergency re-
pairs--Dixie's primary use
for the program-- have been
cut entirely

The $350,000 can only be
used to assist "first-time"
homebuyers--defined as any-
one who hasn't bought a


new house in the last three
years--who make less than
$75,000 a year. Homebuyers
get an $8,000 downpayment
assistance short-term loan
that must be repaid with the
homebuyer's tax return re-
funds in 18 months. If the
homeowner does not repay
the money, Rita Harris of
Harris Administrative Ser-
vices told the County Com-
mission, "We (the county)
will have to place a ten-year
note."

"We have to provide this,"
she said of the newly re-de-
fined SHIP program, "The'
question is how are we go-
ing to enforce these people
giving us their income tax
returns?"


Harris explained that the
emergency repair funds may
be back after December
first, but that it depends on
the Obama administration
and on Florida legislators.
Commissioner Hatch
replied, "This is all depend-
ing on Barack Obama and
his track record, so far, to
me, hasn't been that good."

SHIP emergency repair
funds were essential in the
last few years for very low-
income residents whose
wells went dry or became
unusable. Harris said, "In
Tallahassee they don't think
about people with (bad)
wells, how devastating that
can be, but we live it and
breathe it every day."


Local Conservationist meets

Clinton & Kennedys in NYC


Stan Meeks, and Mar
Stan Meeks, Suwannee
Riverkeeper, attended the
10th Annual Waterkeeper
Alliance Meeting in New
York City. The Waterkeep-
ers are a grass-roots move-
ment devoted to tackling en-
Vironmental issues that af-
fect waterways. Meeks is
probably best known as
"The Manatee Man," a Viet-
nam vet who now spends
his time rescuing and advo-
cating for Florida's gentle
giant on the Suwannee.

Former President Bill Clin-
ton gave the keynote ad-
dress at the meeting, and
Mr. Meeks was lucky
enough to have a few min-
utes of "one on one" time
with him, during which
Meeks informed him "about
the dire conditions facing
the Suwannee River and
Florida Water Wars." Presi-
dent Clinton seemed very in-
terested and Meeks joked
that "Now no one can ever
say again that nobody has
ever said anything good
about Dixie County on a
national level."


Suwannee to get new


electrical substation


Six property easements are
needed, and then Central
Florida Electrical Coopera-
tive will start construction
on a new electrical sub sta-
tion for the Town of Suwan-
nee. The owners of the
property over which ease-
ments are needed have thir-
ty days to negotiate with
the Cooperative before
CFEC takes legal action to
ensure the easements.

The substation will be locat-
ed at the corner of SE 424
Avenue and SR 349 South.

Suwannee has been having
electricity issues for some
time. Residents have com-
plained of shortages, and
Tim Hastings, Member Ser-


vices Supervisor told the
County Commissioners
Thursday that "We're
reaching capacity (in
Suwannee), but we're not
there."

Hastings told the Commis-
sioners that the new con-
crete poles along SR 349 will
look very similar to the
area on North 349 that was
completed earlier. Commis-
sioner Hatch asked hopeful-
ly, "Will there be any street
lights?" "No street lights,"
replied Hastings.

Construction on the project
is expected to begin in late
fall or early winter and to
be completed in approxi-
mately eighteen months.

He went on to say "we al-
lowed no public officials to
talk today and "spin" their
policies. We chose to have
well-informed citizens from
all walks of life to speak
about their concerns regard-
ing the direction of ever-ex-
panding government agen-
das."


Guest speakers covered the
right to bear arms, small

ment, faith and the impor-
tance of speaking out

On Saturday, June 27, 2009,
Pure Water Wilderness (Dix-
ie, Gilchrist, Levy Tourist
Development Board) held
their "1st Annual Suwannee
River Clean Up" event re-
moving nearly 20-yards of
trash.

Items removed were 55-gal-
lon drums, tires, chairs, ta-
bles, steel, diapers, bottles,
cans and so much more.
Several of the participates
commented on looking back
along the banks of where
they had just removed trash
and seeing first hand the
different they had made.


What a team effort with
nearly 110 volunteers help-
ing some in canoes and
boats as well the land-lubber
crew helping with set-up,
entertainment, cooking,
serving lunch and removing
trash from the boats.

*The clean up began around
8:30 a.m. at various loca-
tions along the Suwannee
River (Hart Springs, Otter
Springs and Suwannee
Gables Motel) with everyone
gathering at Hinton Land-
ing in Dixie County for
lunch, live entertainment
and door prizes.

Friends of the ACLU


After a lot more debate than should have been necessary, the
Obama administration reconsidered its first impulses and
agreed with military experts that it would not be a good idea
to release photos of American military personnel "mistreat-
ing" captured Islamic militants. It was reasoned that the
photos would inflame-anti-US sentiment and further endan-
ger our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Even though the "tortures" depicted bore more resemblance
to college fraternity initiations than the atrocities of the
Spanish Inquisition--or for that matter, the treatment of cap-
tured American military personnel by Islamic terrorist
groups--they were perceived as being sufficient to create real
and potentially life-threatening problems for our personnel.
A good enough reason to suppress a few sensationalistic
photos, one would think.

However, that wasn't good enough for the ACLU and various
elite media outlets who said the public's "right to know" out-
weighed any considerations for the safety of our military
personnel. Actually, these groups don't give a rodent's poste-
rior extremity about the public's right to know. Liberal me-
dia outlets have seen fit to "spike" unflattering stories about
their favorites, and the ACLU doesn't seem to notice when
that happens. But if someone they don't like messes up,
that's front page news and not just for a day or two.

Sad to say, we expect this of the liberals who focus their ca-
reers on trashing our military These are people who, for the
most part, have never lifted a finger in support of this na-
tion's legitimate interests, military or otherwise. However
this sorry lot has been joined by one that is perhaps even
sorrier, simply because they cannot plead ignorance. Stupid-
ity, perhaps, but not ignorance.

I'm talking aboht three "veterans" groups who are petition-
ing the Obama administration to go ahead and release the
controversial photos. Why?'Because "...releasing the dis-
turbing images is crucial to national security and upholding
international law."

National security? Where do these bozos get that idea when
it has already been established that releasing the photos
would have the exact opposite effect? As for upholding inter-
national law, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out
that international law is all about blaming the,,nited States
for anything that goes wrong. Internationallta-ts cited by a
few countries when they find it convenihtntbut it carries no
actual authority toward any nation that chooses to ignore it--
which makes our own government look all the more foolish
when we defer to international law in situations wherein it
is not in our best interests to do so.

Incidentally, the aforementioned "veterans" organizations
are Veterans for Peace," "Iraq Veterns Against the War," and
"Veterans for Common Sense." Thought you might like to
know, because sooner or later you could be getting a letter
from one of these outfits wanting a contribution.

We need to understand that we are not dealing with armies
serving in uniform in the service of a nation that has agreed
to the Geneva accords. Captured Islamic terrorists are the
equivalent of hooligans with no more legitimacy than paid
assassins. Ask one for his name, rank and serial number
and, having no identification, he will give a false name. He
holds no official rank and terrorist groups do not assign ser-
ial numbers. Thus, you cannot even identify one of these
misfits in terms of international law, yet liberals lament the
fact that we keep them at Gitmo, rather than hiring them
lawyers and trying them in federal court like they were
American citizens.

As for the aforementioned "veterans" groups, they are in-
deed friends of the ACLU, and they dishonor the uniforms
they once wore as well as the country they took an oath to
serve.

American-Made Energy

By Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-FL)

I approach the energy debate
with the basic assumption that
our current energy policy is not
working. Nothing illustrated
this more than the energy crisis
of last summer when gas prices
in Florida climbed over $4 a gal-
lon. This spike in energy prices
was one of the major contribut-
ing factors of the current reces-
sion, making it clear that our de-
pendence on foreign oil is inex-
tricably linked to our economic
future. We are dangerously de-
pendent on foreign sources of
energy, and this dependence is
expensive. Our country sends
over $440 billion overseas each
year to buy crude oil from for-
eign countries. If we continue
this practice, we will forever be
beholden to foreign countries
for our energy needs and our
economic well-being will be at
risk. Now is the time to move to
American-made energy

To chart this path to energy in-
dependence, a new, balanced en-
ergy policy is needed one that
keeps costs low for North Flori-
da families, invests in renewable
and alternative energy sources,
and promotes innovative energy
technologies that will create
new American jobs. I gave a lot
of thought to the energy bill
that the House of Representa-
tives passed last week, and I am
convinced that this bill does all
of those things and is essential
to our region's and our coun-
try's economic future.

One of the biggest misconcep-
tions about the energy bill is
that it would impose thousands
of dollars in costs on the aver-
age household. This is simply


as




9


not true. The nonpartisan Con-
gressional Budget Office ana-
lyzed the bill and concluded it
would cost 48 cents a day for
families at its height in 2020 -
around the cost of a postage
stamp per day. These estimates.
did not even hiclude the savings
that would come from upgrades
to the energy grid, more effi-
cient homes, and advanced ap-
pliance efficiency standards.

Many also complain about the
costs associated with the cap
and trade.program in the bill
that addresses carbon emis-
sions. Those who do not believe
in climate change or that the
world population is affecting cli-
mate change will disagree with
me, but I believe that failure to
begin reducing carbon emis-
sions will leave a diminished,
economically vulnerable world
for our grandchildren. What is
indisputable is that our future
on the current path leaves us
with zero control over energy
prices. American-made energy
will be critical to our country's
economic future, to controlling
energy costs, and to maintaining
our quality of life.

The cap and trade program
would require utility companies
to reduce carbon emissions by
17 percent by 2020. Under this
program, companies would be
required to reduce their emis-
sions or purchase allowances in
order to exceed these caps. This
will incentivize large utility
companies to shift toward clean
coal technologies and other re-
newable sources of energy Iur-
al electric cooperatives (co-ops)
in North Florida would receive
free allowances to help ol'set en-
ergy costs and keep prices af-
fordable.

Another key component of the


today?" Well, Ivan, see, I was talking to Steve-Ramesh and
we had it figured out but he disconnected me and I just
need to talk to him again so that we can finish up our call.
"I am sorry for any inconvenience that that your disconnec-
tion may have caused. How may I help you today?" At this
point, I admit, I was ashamed to notice a pleading tone
creeping into my voice. Please please please just let him give
me back to Steve-Ramesh. I felt the vein over my eyebrow
start to throb. I took a deep breath, and said well, Ivan (if
that IS your real name), my internet's not working and
Steve-Ramesh says that I need a new modem. Ivan sounds
more like the computer Hal from 2001: A Spacey Odyssey
than an actual human being as he recites the Hughesnet
mantra, "I am sorry for any inconvenience that your lack of
service has caused you. May I put you on hold while I do
some tests on your modem?" Without waiting for an answer,
I'm thrown back to La Isla Bonita. I begin to wonder if it's
too early for an adult beverage.

I'll spare you the details of the rest of the call, as Ivan
forced me to repeat all of the same dance-steps that Steve-
Ramesh had put me through: plugging, unplugging, pinging,
re-wiring my computer, doing the
Macarena....I'll just say that at the end of
Everyting is funny yet another umpteen La Isla Bonitas, he,
s it Is happening to too, decided that a new modem was in or-
somebody else. der and that I should get one in "five to
--Will Rogers seven business days." Oh, and he re-
minded me to ship the old one back, at
gghg~mghghghh y expense, or I'd be charged an outra-
ghgh ghghgh geous sum of money for it. At that point,
--Kathy McKinney I didn't care. I would have promised him.
almost anything just to get my email


Well, 'Steve,' (Who are you kidding? We both know your
name is Ramesh and they make you use a made-up angli-
cized name just to make we xenophobic, Ango-Saxon folk
more comfortable)...but anyway, my cheap, but yet hugely
overpriced plastic modem isn't working. You remember two
weeks ago when I. called, and spent an hour waiting on you
while I was on hold because I had no service and you told
me that your satellite was down and to wait for a few hours
and it'd be back? It's like that, except it's not going away
this time.

"I am sorry for any inconvenience that your lack of service
has caused you. May I put you on hold while I look at infor-
mation about your account?"

Yep. At this point, I sigh a deep sigh of resignation, because
I know I'm going to spend twenty minutes listening to a stat-
icy Dollywood rendition of Madonna's "La Isla
Bonita" over and over and over. It seems to be
the ONLY song on the Hughesnet customer non-
service hold tape. I'm beginning to break out in as long
hives every time I flip past it on the radio, I
swear.

Four times. I listened to it FOUR times before
Steve-Ramesh came back. "I am sorry for the ARRmrrg
long hold. I am checking information on your
account. What is the problem?"

Well, Steve-Ramesh, I don't have any internet!! You know,
that service I'm paying you close to $100 a month for? Yeah,
that. It's not working. Kaputt. Dead. It is an ex-internet. It
has shuffled off the mortal coil. It has gone to meet it's
maker. It is pushing up daisies. (OK, unless you're familiar
with Monty Python's "Dead Parrot" sketch, this is going to
make no sense. Go get the DVD. Seriously)

"I am sorry for any inconvenience that your lack of service
has caused you. May I put you on hold while I do some tests
on your modem?" Sigh. Back to La Isla Bonita again. The
static is so bad, it sounds like a Cuban AM radio station at 3
AM. At times the voice goes away entirely, and I'm listening
to pure nerve-jangling static. At about the fifth repeat, I pop
my head in the living room to see that the kids are fighting
over a Nintendo DS and that the dog is eating the sock I've
spent the last two days knitting. My blood pressure starts to
make the roots of my hair tingle. Five more trips to La Isla
Bonita later, and Steve-Ramesh comes back. "I am sorry for
the long hold. I am testing issues with your modem." He
then runs me through a series that I've become so familiar
with over the last year: unplug the modem, unplug the
router, reboot the computer. Did that work? No. Now plug
the modem directly into the computer, skipping the router
and reboot everything again. Did that work? No.

At this point, I try to break through his robotic repetition of
the "fix it" steps, and say, "Hey, Steve-Ramesh, I know what
it is. We had a big storm and I'm fairly sure it got hit by
lightning." Steve ignores me, and presses on with his check-
list. We ping. We ipconfig. We're becoming fast friends and
I'm beginning to toy with the idea of naming my next kid
Steve-Ramesh. TWO HOURS LATER, and God only knows
how many more "May I place you on hold" time periods,
Steve-Ramesh says, "I think your modem may be defective,
may I place you on hold so that I can check your account to
send you a new one?" Sure, Steve, why not. What's four or
five more Isla Bonitas now between friends? "Thapk you,"
says Steve-Ramesh. And then he places me on hold.

There's no music. There's no static. HE'S DISCONNECTED
ME!!!! So I call back. I maneuver my way through the auto-
mated service, asking for technical support. "Hello, this is
'Ivan' at Hughesnet technical support, how may I help you


energy bill is the establishment
of a reasonable new standard
for utility companies. Under the
bill, the major Florida utility
providers would be required to
generate 20 percent of their en-
ergy from renewable sources by
the year 2020, while co-ops,
which serve many North Florid-
ians, would be exempt from
meeting this standard. The
state of Florida could also lower
the 20 percent threshold on large
utility companies by requesting
that 8 percent of the standard be
met through conservation mea-
sures, such as energy efficiency
improvements. These standards
are designed so that the con-
sumer benefits from the gradual
incorporation of locally-derived
energy and reasonable, corre-
sponding rates.

For utility companies to meet
the remaining 12 percent renew-
able energy requirement, the en-
ergy bill expands biomass and
nuclear programs both critical
aspects of Florida's energy ca-
pabilities. I fought hard to make
sure that biomass and nuclear
programs were included and
promoted in the energy bill.
This is a significant win for our
state and a large reason for my
support of the bill. Both bio-
mass and nuclear energy are a
vital part of' Florida 's energy
future, and investments in these
areas will create new jobs and
new industry in our state.

In addition to biomass and nu-
clear; the energy bill invests in
clean coal. Our country has ap-
proximately 27 percent of the
world's coal supply. Any work-
able energy policy must recog-
nize the substantial role that
coal will play in creating new
jobs and making our country en-
ergy independent, and the ener-
gy bill does this by investing in


technologies that will help make
coal cleaner..

We are a long way from enacting
a new, national energy policy
into law. The Senate also must
draft an energy bill, and then
the differences between the
House and Senate bills must be
reconciled. While the House-
passed energy bill may not be
perfect, it reflects our long-term
energy needs and responds to
our collective responsibility to
ensure a better world for future
generations. As Congress con-
tinues to move forward and de-
velop a national energy policy, I
will be looking for a final bill
that works for our state and sets
the stage for long-term econom-
ic prosperity and a secure na-
tion that is energy independent.

Congressman Boyd:
I have to respectfully disagree.
This bill is a bureaucratic horror
and you have done a grave dis-
service to Florida by votingfor it.
Our real estate market is bad
enough now. Just wait until Cap
and Trade kicks in and you can't
sell your 30year old home with-
out a passing inspection from "a
federal energy inspector:" And if
your house doesn't measure up?
Thefeds require you to fix all of
it, regardless of cost, before you
are ALLOWED to sell your own
home. It covers everything: where
your outlets can go, whether or
not you're allowed to replace a
window or not, and what kind of
lamps you can buy. This is not
an environmental bill, it's an un-
constitutional attempt to regulate
every aspect of American life.
Where in the Constitution does it
give thefederal government the
right to mandate a national
building code? If this legislation
scares you, please contact our
Senators: at this point they're our,
only hope. --editor

And on the Seventh Day, the new modem came, via FEDEX:
(Cue the angelic choir) And after another hour and a half of
installation and some cursing, I looked upon the connection
and it was good. And there was email, and I looked upon it
and declared it good, too. And it kept coming, and coming,
and coming. I think I had stored up 1000 emails over that
week with no service. What was amazing was that almost
NONE of them were actually for me. Most of them were
trying to sell me something, or Nigerian diplomats letting
me know I've come into an inheritance. I got it all, checked
my Facebook and Myspace and went to bed.

We woke up the next morning and the kids went to do their
online homeschool work. Mitchell came to get me, saying
that his reading lesson wouldn't load. It was running so
slowly that it was unusable. Apparently, all of those "buy
Viagra" emails used up my 200 megabyte a day bandwidth
'and Hughesnet cappedd" me. That means they slow you
down for 24 hours to about half of dialup speed--slightly
slower than a drunken snail sliming across sharp gravel--to
punish you for using all the service you paid for. So I have'
yet another day of internet non-service to wade through.
Enraged, I gripped the phone.

"Hello, this is 'Bob' at Hughesnet technical support, how can
I help you?" He robotically recited "I am sorry that you
have been subjected to our FAP policy because you had no
service for 2 weeks. You must wait 24 hours and your ser-
vice will be restored. How else may I help you?" I'm sure
Bob spent his lunch break telling his co-workers Steve-
Ramesh and Ivan over a lovely curry vindaloo about the
crazy white woman who called him and then did nothing
but scream, long and wordlessly into the phone, like some-
one staked out and being eaten alive by fire ants. I'm sure
that it's not the first time somebody got pushed over the
sanity ledge by the robotic answers, the lack of anybody
authorized to actually do anything, and the total lck of
customer service.

I look at it this way: It could have been worse, Bob. I could
have sung La Isla Bonita at you.

GAINESVILLE MAN WHO SOLICITED
"MOTHER" FOR SEX WITH HER
CHILDREN GETS MAX SENTENCE

TALLAHASSEE, FL- Attor-
ney General Bill McCollum
today announced that an
Alachua County man has re-
ceived the maximum sen-
tence recommended after he
was convicted of soliciting a
"mother" for sex with her
two young children.
Seth Jerchower was sen-
tenced to just over 27 years
in prison and will serve
lifetime supervision as a
registered sex offender upon
his release. He was
arrested in December 2007
by law enforcement with the
Attorney General's
CyberCrime Unit and was
prosecuted by the U.S. Attor-
ney's Office for the
Northern District of Flori-
da.

tion, Jerchower, 47, ap-
proached an undercover
CyberCrime investigator in
an internet chatroom and
began chatting with the
investigator. After speaking
for only a few minutes with
the investigator, Jerchower
began soliciting sex with
the "mother's" children and
continued to explicitly dis-
cuss his intentions with the
investigator throughout the
day The "mother's" children
were allegedly nine and 11
years old.

Jerchower, of Gainesville,
was taken into custody by
law enforcement
officers with the Cyber-
Crime Unit. The arrest was
assisted by the Gainesville
Police Department, the Fed-
eral Bureau of Investigation
and the Alachua County
Sheriffs office. The sentence
was handed down yesterday
inthe United States District
Court in Gainesville.


Due to circumstances
beyond our control the
reopening of the All
Veteran's Memorial
has been postponed
until 20 July 2009
(the anniversary of the
First man on the

We apologize for any
inconvenience this
may cause.

Wagon train

adventure along the

Suwannee to be aired

on TV

Television viewers will get
a chance to see local horse-
back riders on national TV
next week. The "Best of
America by Horseback"
program will feature a wag-
on train ride along the
Suwannee River and the
groundbreaking ceremony
for the R.O. Ranch Equestri-
an Park.

The show is scheduled to'
air on July 9 at 1:30 p.m. and
July 11 at 11 a.m. on the
RFD channel. RFD is cur-
rently unavailable on cable,
but viewers who have satel-
lite may tune in on channel
231 on DISH NETWORK and
on channel 345 on DI-
RECTV.

Segments of the show may
also be viewed at www.ro-
ranch.org. The show was
taped in 2008 and originally
aired in March.

The first segment of the
program will feature a
three-week trip, during
which several local horse-
back riders in wagons trav-
eled the entire stretch of
the Suwannee River from
its headwaters in Georgia to
the Gulf of Mexico. For
John Paul Schneider, of


Suwannee County, who led
the adventure, riding along
the trail was a life-long
dream that he fulfilled with
friends.

On their journey; the wagon
train traveled through sev-
eral tracts of land managed
by the Suwannee River Wa-
ter Management District
(District). Along the route
riders enjoyed seeing the
great outdoors, as they
came in contact with deer,
turkeys and wild hogs.

The wagon train gang did-
n't wind up their adventure
before attending a ground-
breaking ceremony at the
R.O. Ranch Equestrian Park
south of Mayo. The R.O.
Ranch is a 2,500-acre eques-
trian park being developed
by R.O. Ranch, Inc. and the
District. The park is a long-
time dream of Frank "Red"
and Olive Schulte, who
wanted to share their love
of the environment and
mules with the public.
When the District estab-
lished R.O. Ranch, Inc., a
Florida nonprofit corpora-
tion, the couple gave a $3.5-
million endowment to fund
the ranch's operations.

The park is currently open
for day use. For more infor-
mation visit

recreational opportunities
available to the public on
District lands.

"Summertime and the liv-

of songs of summer, and if
you'll pardon the pun, there
are some "hot" tunes
around. Summer has ar-
rived with the usual hot and
humid days. Days that make
us a wee bit lazy, looking for
the air-conditioning comfort
of our homes. In those fa-
mous words of
Tracy Bird,
"too hot to

does not plan
rides for July
and those dog days of Au-

that some of our members
will get together for early
morning rides during the
summer. I applaud your ef-
forts, and I hope you will
have a terrific time! I would
love to hear of your adven-

tall tales with us? What in-
credible things did you see
on your journey? What was
blowing in the wind, or was
that just you, trying to catch
a breath? Did you see some
extraordinary wild life? Do
tell!

All this heat has me looking
forward to the fall. I am
dreaming of campfires, and

and have a great time after a
wonderful "cool" adventure-

The Cross City Lion's Club received its Charter from Lions
International last Tuesday The District Governor of Dis-
trict 35L, Dr. Rafeal Mendez, presented the Charter to Lion
President Fred Koberlein (our County Judge) during the
meeting.

The meeting, held at First United Methodist Church of
Cross City, was opened with a Benediction by Lion Jody
Strunk followed by the Pledge of Allegiance lead by Vice
District Governor Elect Dick Richards. After the Lion's
Toast, a fine ham dinner prepared by Joe Weatherwax was
enjoyed. Following dinner, the Keynote Speaker, Lion Tom-
my Dover, a Past District Governor was introduced. His
fine talk included a challenge the new club to "work in its
own locality" Lion President Fred remarked that that issue
had already been brought up during formation meetings.
"The current club membership is dedicated to Cross City
and Dixie County" he said.

The Club Officers who were installed were: President Fred
Koberlein; Vice President Keith Brayman; Secretary Angle
Bush; Treasurer Debbie Dembo; and Tail Twister Michael
Osteen. Other local Lions present were Glenda Brayman,
Starlet Cannon, Dewey Hatcher, Holly Houghton, Robert
Lee, and Briar Osteen.

The Club was presented startup gifts from other clubs.
Among those were cash gifts, a beautiful handmade podium
and a Banner (parts of a banner, the rest is coming). Presi-
dent Fred thanked each donor on behalf of the Club. He
also thanks all of the Lions who put the dinner together, es-
pecially, Lions Keith and Glenda who were the hosts.
"Without them, the evening may have been a flop." he said.
"The successful evening was the result of many people
working together."

Lion Fred says that a special thanks goes to Lion Rosemarie
Watson, a Past District Governor who has attended almost
every startup meeting. "She was instrumental in putting
together the program. We
look forward to having her
at our meetings as our Co-

Southern Pine Beetle
Program Signup

The Southern Pine Beetle
prevention cost share pro-
gram is in full swing again
this year. This program pro-
vides qualified landowners
with assistance for several
management techniques.
Landowners can receive
cost sharing for pre com-
mercial thinning, first pulp-
wood thinnings, mechanical
underbrush removal
through use of a gyrotrac or
mowing, prescribed burn-
ing, and planting costs asso-
ciated with planting Lon-
gleaf pine. The Longleaf
pine planting includes cost
share for seedlings and
planting labor but will not
pay for costs associated with
site preparation.

To be eligible for funds un-
der this program a landown-
er must own at least 10
acres and no more then 5000
acres. Landowners can re-
ceive a maximum reim-
bursement of. $10,000. Cost
share amounts vary by prac-
tice and are designed to help
defray the costs a landowner
will incur while conducting
these activities.


Slash pine is resistant to
Southern Pine Beetle but
the best way for a landown-
er to make sure they do not
occur on their property is to
keep a well maintained
stand. Factors that can re-
duce the chance of an out-
break include maintaining
an open understory and re-
ducing competition among
older pines by thinning.
This program was designed
with those principles in
mind and also takes into
consideration the historical-
ly poor pulpwood market.
Landowners conducting a
first thinning are eligible
for a payment of $50 per
acre. This is designed to
counteract the low pulp-
wood prices by making it
more economically feasible
for a landowner to conduct a
thinning at the proper time.
Practices completed prior to
acceptance into the pro-
gram will not qualify for re-
imbursement.

Enrollment in this program
opened on July 1st 2009 and
will end on August 12th
2009. Landowners can re-
ceive more information by
contacting the Dixie County
Forester at (850)838-2286.

Five loggers from Dixie
County were recently
awarded the designation of
Florida Master Loggers.
Master Loggers are logging
professionals trained in en-
vironmentally sound, safe
and efficient logging prac-
tices. A total of 34 loggers
from around the state re-
ceived the Master Logger
designation following com-
pletion of the three-day edu-
cation program held in Per-
ry, June 10-12.

The Master Logger course
includes training in safety,
business management, rules
and regulations, timber se-
curity, environmental con-
cerns, ethics and public re-
lations.

These loggers now return to
their businesses with en-
hanced credentials to offer
logging and forestry ser-
vices in this growing seg-
ment of the local and state
economy Forestry con-
tributes $193.2 million to the
Dixie County economy. Ap-
proximately 1,728 employees
work directly in the coun-
ty's forest industry, which
generates a $57.5 million

Why Do Cats Spray?

Cats are territorial crea-
tures. They may use a vari-
ety of signals to mark their
territory and set clear
boundaries to other cats. Fe-
line marking codes include
scratch marks, scent rubbed
off their skin, uncovered fe-
ces, and urine sprayed in
strategic locations.

It is perfectly normal for un-
altered males to make terri-
torial claims by spraying.
This behavior begins with
sexual maturity and is trig-
gered by hormonal changes.
With time, however, it can
become
an inher- -
ent part .
of the
cat's be-
havioral
reper-
toire.

Females
in heat
also tend
to spray.
This is
Thisis Nappin' b
apparent-
ly a form of
announcement. The female
lets the males in her vicini-
ty know that she's in heat by
releasing special scents in
her urine and spraying it in
key locations.

Spraying can occur even
with neutered males and fe-
males. Some people prefer to
wait and neuter a male cat
after he has reached sexual
maturity. By then, spraying
may become a fixed behav-
ior the cat will spray sim-
ply out of habit.

Spraying is connected with
territorial marking. A cat
may sometimes begin to
spray when he or she per-
ceives a territorial threat.
This threat may be a new
cat or dog, or possibly feral
cats that come near the
house. Often, the threat is
less obvious the cat is gen-
erally insecure, or is over-
stressed for some reason,
and reacts by spraying.
How to Deal with Spraying

There are several things you
can do to try and solve the
problem:

The first thing you
should do is have the cat ex-
amined by a vet. Any prob-
lem that involves changes in
urinating habits may indi-
cate one of several medical
conditions that need imme-
diate veterinary attention.
Further actions should be
taken only after the.vet
gives your cat a clean bill of


u


health.
If the cat is unaltered,
you should get it neutered
as soon as possible. In many
cases, this will completely
solve the problem.
If you suspect that the
reason for the spraying pat-
tern is some perceived
threat from another cat or
dog, analyze the problem
and try to accommodate
your cat with the space and
privacy it needs. If the prob-
lem has to do with cats that
are outside the house, you
should minimize your cat's
exposure to those cats.
Sometimes spraying is a
reaction to general stress
not necessarily related to
territorial is-
S sues. You
should try to
lower the
cat's stress
by maintain-
ing routine
and keeping
his environ-
ment relaxed
and calm.
Never
punish your
iddies cat for spray-
ing. Never
hit the cat or
rub its nose in the urine.
Cats cannot be taught by
punishment. In fact, punish-
ing the cat will probably
cause him more stress, thus
making the problem worse.
The smell of urine may
encourage the cat to spray
again on the same spot. You
should clean the stain thor-
oughly by using special
products that completely
neutralize any odors rather
than just covering them up.
Avoid products that contain
ammonia, since these may
actually remind the cat of
the smell of urine.
There is a special prod-
uct called Feliway, which
can be very effective when
dealing with problem spray-
ing. Make sure you read all
the instructions and use it
properly to get the best re-
sults.
If the problem persists,
try to consult an animal be-
haviorist. Spraying can be a
difficult problem to solve.
It's better to call in an ex-
pert quickly rather than let
the problem get worse. Your
vet can usually refer you to
a local cat behaviorist. In
some cases a behaviorist or
a vet will recommend a
course of medications to
calm the cat down and re-
duce its stress level.

What will Senate Bill 2080 mean for Dixie? You decide.


A Conservationist Says:


On June
30th, Gov-
ernor
~ Charlie
Crist
signed Sen-
ate Bill
2080, relat-
ing to wa-
ter re-
sources,
into law. Although the bill is
not perfect, it is my firm be-
lief- a belief that I ex-
pressed to the Governor -
that this bill should be
signed for the many benefits
it provides to both to the en-
vironment and the people of
Florida.

Although the new law re-
quires the Governing
Boards of the state's five
water management districts
to delegate authority to ap-
prove permits to their exec-
utive directors, each of the
water management districts
have been and will contin-
ue to be committed to open
government and transparen-
cy

The simple fact is nothing
in Senate Bill 2080 diminish-
es, alters, or limits the abili-
ty of the public from inquir-
ing or obtaining informa-
tion about a permit applica-
tion or objecting to an appli-
cation.

While much attention has
focused on delegation, many
other aspects of the bill of-
fer greater protection for
Florida's water resources
that have gone largely unno-
ticed. However, these
changes will help ensure the
protection and conservation
of Florida's water re-
sources. They include;

Changes to Florida
law regarding environmen-
tally-friendly landscaping.
The use of Florida-friendly
landscaping and other mea-
sures by homeowners is an
effort to conserve Florida's


water resources, which is in
the best interest of all
Floridians.

Expands lands eligi-
ble to receive compensation
to local governments. This
provision puts into Florida
law a commitment of the
South Florida Water Man-
agement District to ensure
the smaller Glades commu-
nities are not adversely im-
pacted by the U.S. Sugar
land acquisition.

Streamlines govern-
ment and saves taxpayer
dollars allowing meetings
to be conducted via technol-
ogy and authorizing the use
of certain long-term per-
mits.

Provides fiscally
sound policies that ensure
the water management dis-
tricts do not overextend
their financial commit-
ments.

Every drop of water makes
a difference to Florida's fu-
ture, and we must continue
to protect and wisely man-
age our water resources.
There is no doubt that Flori-
da's environment is better
protected when all stake-
holders are involved in the
decision-making process. As
a result, I am committed to
preserving the public
process throughout this
next year. I will continue
working with the executive
directors of the state's five
water management districts
to ensure openness and
transparency In addition, I
look forward to working
with the 2010 Legislature to
develop a process that sus-
tains transparency and
stakeholder participation.

Michael W Sole
Secretary
Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection


Secretary Sole:

Your are quoted in your de-
fense of Senate Bill 2080 be-
coming law as saying "that
It is my firm belief a belief
that I expressed to the Gov-
ernor that this bill should
be signed for the many ben-
efits it provides to both to
the environment and the
people of Florida. "Busi-
ness as usual' would be good
news to environmentalists,
who decried passage of the
bill.""

SSDD (Same Stuff, Different
Day) is what we called it in
the military.

During the last legislative
session the strongest and
most far reaching environ-
mental protection bill
reached the senate floor,
passage was assured; when
at the last minute, truly at
mid-night, lame duck Rep-
Will Kendrick attached two
amendments. One amend-
ment would give the entire
1,400 mile long Florida coast
into the hands of urban
sprawl developers with little
or no oversight. That
amendment was a deal
killer of the best Floridian
environmental protection
bill ever written and having
almost assured passage, it
went down in flames.

This legislative session;
they have taken our funda-
mental, individual right
from underneath the land
on which we stand. Our
rivers and springs, includ-.
ing private lakes, springs,
ponds, puddles and the mud-
dy water in tire ruts; any
fresh water on top of and
below ground is controlled
by a faceless, politically ap-
pointed bureaucrat and he
is shielded from all outside
contact by the Water Man-
agement Districts.

But we have not legal re-
course to express our posi-
tion in any manor to the
man who directly controls
our water. According to
some of the legal rhetoric I
found in the Bill indicated
that this "water czar"
should be kept in anonymi-
ty from the public. Sounds


like a fascist U& a
or commu-
nist laws in-
stead those
that are
made to gov-
ern a free
society to
me, but any
way you cut
it a very
tiny'group of people have
control of all of Florida's
fresh water, above and be-
low ground.

The local water manage-
ment districts say trust us
blindly and without y9u
having any voice in the mat-
ter, we will save your water,
your time and make money
What do you think they will
do with complete control of
our water? Return the State
to La Florida Land.of
Flowers or make every pen-
ny that they can, regardless
of the environmental loss.

I expect that within three to
five years, the quality and
quantity of current local
and state waterways will
suffer severely from passage
of the bill.

Mr Sole's valuable "Other
Components of Senate Bill,
2080" include transferring
water from Lake Okee-
chobee to the Everglades
National Park in an effort to
preserve the state wetland.
Also, the bill carries a
clause that allows home-
owners to convert their
lawns into "Florida-friend-
ly" yards, shielding them
from previous loopholes, in
addition to the reenactment
of Florida's five water man-
agement districts for the
next five years.

These "other components"
of the Bill are ho where
near the value of the indi-
vidual's right to control the
water on his own land.

We have lost complete con-
trol of the most valuable
commodity in our lives.

Obituaries and Faith


- Doyle Crockett Hand

DOYLE CROCKETT HAND, age 73, of Old Town, Flori-
da passed away Sunday, June 28, 2009, at his home sur-
rounded by his family and partner Sally Sanchez, after
a courageous battle with cancer.

Doyle was born in Columbiana, Alabama.
August 5, 1935. He was the son of Ibrey
Hand and Tommy Lucille Lindsey -

He was preceded in death by his wife, --
Daphna Hand, parents, Ibrey Hand and .-
step-father William Ralph Lindsey and
daughter Anita Darlene Hand.

Doyle attended Holy Cross Mission of Cross
City, Florida. During his time of active service
in the Air Force, Doyle served in Okinawa, Germany
and France. In this area, he worked for the Levy Coun-
ty Housing Authority and retired from Cross City Cor-
rectional in 1997. He went on to work at the Tri-County
Nursing Home. Doyle's passions were traveling, camp-
ing, his family and blue grass music. His pleasures
came from sitting around a campfire, enthusiastically '
cheering during his grand daughters softball games on
the CAAA league, family gatherings, and an evening of
playing cards or dominos. He loved blue grass festivals.

Doyle gave a helping hand to everyone. He didn't agree
with being judgmental of anyone.

He is survived by his partner, Sally; brothers, Wayne
and Larry Hand; sisters, Norma Jean Anderson, Gwen
Sanders and Brenda Griffin; son, Steve B. Hand; daugh-
ters, Donita Tapp and Susanne Goss; step daughters,
Cheryl Twambly (Jeff) and Kathy Culhane. He enjoyed
grandchildren Jeremy Dale, Tamica Faye, Stephanie
Dawn, Megan, Chelsea, Jared, Austin Jacob and Emma
Rose.

Committal services will be held at the Florida National
Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida on Thursday, July 9, 2009
at 2:00 PM and a Memorial service at the Holy Cross
Mission in Cross City on Friday, July 10, 2009 at 11:00
AM.Arrangements were placed under the care of the
Rick Gooding Funeral Home, Cross City, Florida, 352-


498-5400.



FAITH BAPTIST
CHURCH NEWS
What a Mighty God we
serve. He gave us a gor-
geous day today for this
wonderful 4th of July Week-
end when we honor our ser-
vice men who have fought to
defend our great country,
those who lost their lives
and the ones who are still
there defending us.
Our crowd was large and
we had a lot of visitors. We
want our visitors to know
they are very special people,
we love them and invite
them to join us if they're
looking for a church home.
If you were just traveling
and passing through, we in-
vite you to come back and
worship with us anytime.
Most of our people who
have been sick, had surgery,
etc., were back and well
mended. God hears and an-

planted them, fertilized, put
out the herbicide and GOD
sent the sunshine and rain
to make them grow for the
beautification of HIS House!
Thanks Lawrence!
We are thankful for what
looks like a gooood scallop

needs this! Thank you LORD

cian and we thank Him for
answering our prayers.
Wednesday night will be
our regular monthly busi-
ness meeting. As members
of Faith, it's our duty to be
there and take part in God's
work.
Remember this week to
pray for the lost, the less for-
tunate, the sick and those
who just need some encour-
agement from us Christians.
Most people watch us and to
some, we may be the only
Bible they read, so let's set a
good example and encour-
age them to come to church
with us. Invite someone to
Sunday School and Church
with you and if you've been
missing Sunday School,
we've been missing you, so
dome back and bring some-
one with you. Until we meet
again, may God keep you
safe, healthy, and happy.

CALVARY TEMPLE NEWS

Over the next 2-3 weeks I,
Pastor Jim Hurst, will be
preaching a series of mes-
sages that I suppose could
be called "A Survival Se-
ries." The series is titled
"Prosperity Now" and has to
do with God's abilities and
provisions in difficult times.
We will discuss exactly what
the will of God is concern-
ing prosperity -- what it ac-
tually mens to prosper -- and
what true prosperity
really implies.

Unfortunately most people
still relate prosperity to fi-
nances and materialism
only which short-circuits
the provisions of God con-
cerning True Prosperity Al-
though these things are
surely a part, they are not
the sum and we need to
know that. Times just ahead
will prove to be the most dif-
ficult ever faced by the pre-
sent generation. Nuclear
war is now a serious and
very real threat. It is no
longer a question of "if' but"


Please study the plan of

"when" and when it occurs
life as we know it today will
be drastically changed.
When the Mideast oil supply
is cut-off and our dollar
folds it is imperative that we
understand God's.plan of
prosperity True prosperity
will always be relative to the
present need whatever
that need might be at the
time.

Nuclear war nor economic
hard-times have any
effect on God's ability to
provide for those who trust
in Him. Unfortunately it
will be the lack of knowl-
edge (Hosea 4:6) that will
cause many, even God's
children,,to perish. I nor-
mally do not pump a mes-
sage unless I have a sense of
urgency and that is exactly
what I am sensing at pre-
sent. Please, for your own
well-being consider joining
us for the next few Sunday's.
I promise that you
will leave the service feeling
a lot better than you did be-
fore you came. Our
services begin @ 10:30am.

NEW PROSPECT

BAPTIST NEWS
Sunday morning, it was
good to be back in church.
Our choir and musicians
did another admirable job of
getting things underway
and, with God's help, Bro.
Billy brought another fine
message, choosing his text
from Genesis 12:1-2. Later
during the day, many of our
members converged at An-
derson's Campground on
the Suwannee (old KOA) to
get our annual River Retreat
going, where evening ser-
vices were later held. Each
year, the Retreat is antici-
pated as a good time of fel-
lowship with other Christ-
ian families, and always
lives up to its name.

Next Sunday, July 12th, Bro.
Andy and Sis. Katrina will
begin a Christian Growth
class, starting at 6:00 PM
each Sunday and running
for six weeks; a very worth-
while endeavor, and you're
invited. On Wednesday


with a great message from
Pastor Dave Douglas recent-
ly. He and his wife Jeannie
are missionaries in the All
Nations Outreach Ministry!
He is leaving for the mission
field next month, please pray
for them! Also sharing their
blessing as to what GOD has
done for them were the Hap-
piness Hills Home for some
fine young ladies. They
shared their testimonies of
some difficult trials, troubles
and difficult experiences
they have had in the past!
Call the church office if your
church would like to be
blessed with these special
forgiven young ladies!
