SATELLITE PIRACY


Suwannee residents report-
ed to the Advocate on Tues-
day morning that Federal
agents were spotted at
Griner's Island "with a
huge trailer" at the home of
Thomas and Yvonne Holt.

The Holts run American
Cable TV Inc., the cable
television provider in
Suwannee and live in a stilt
house on Griner's Island,
on SE 205th Street in
Suwannee. American Ca-
ble TV has been operating
since 1984, and Griner's Is-
land has been in the Holt
family for years.

Apparently the warrant
claims that the Holts may
have been using pirated
satellite transmissions in
the cable business.

The FBI would not confirm
any specific details of the
investigation. No one has
been charged with any-
thing at this time.


Florida to declare
war on pythons

Florida Fish and Wildlife is
considering a plan that will
allow trained, supervised
people with permits to hunt
and kill pythons on state
land. South Florida
pythons have been the stuff
of urban legend for
decades, and a toddler was
tragically killed by'a family
pet last week, adding incen-
tive to get rid of the slither-
ing invaders.

Students at Ruth Rains
Middle School got a trip to
Skate Station in Gainesville
as a reward for earning 100
Accelerated Reading points.
These points are earned
throughout the year, and
are given when students
pass comprehension tests
on books that they've read.


This year 42 students were
rewarded with a pizza
lunch, skating, bumper car
rides, and rock wall climb-
ing.

Thanks to Macaele Wood,
for chaperoning and Chris-
tine Whitby for driving the
bus and chaperoning.

Tooth Fairy Visits Library


The tooth fairy was running .,Tf.-. ......'- ,
a little late due to her busy :I
schedule, but she took time
to explain to kids how im- 1
portant it is to take good .
care of your teeth.

She stressed the importance
of flossing every day and
brushing twice a day for at
least two minutes.

She gave the kids goody
bags with timers, tooth
brushes and cups to help
them remember her visit.

The children's program at
the library was attended by
hundreds of children and
was very successful this
year. Congratulations to the
library staff who worked so
hard on the programs.

One of those selected for
this year's institute was
Clare McDonald, a science
teacher at Dixie County
High School. Participation
in OIEE is highly competi-
tive; the 20 attendees were
selected from more than 80
applications.

Teachers learn the basic
principles of ecology in ter-
restrial and aquatic ecosys-
tems, methods for applying
this knowledge to lesson
plans and ways to develop
their own schoolyards for
environmental education.

At a follow-up meeting in
the fall, teachers will share
their experiences in imple-
menting what they learned
this summer and discuss
their continuing projects.


While Dixie natives are
holed up in the air condi-
tioning, and complaining of
the unreasonable heat, Mar-
tin Ohlendorf, of Berlin,
Germany was out enjoying
"The Sunshine State."

Mr. Ohlendorf is 34 years
old and is on the last leg of
his cross-country trip. He
started in Calgary, Canada--
where he had a run-in with
a bear-- and is on his way to
Key West. He expects to
cover the 5,300 miles in 9
weeks before returning to
Germany to start a new job.
He said that he "has had a
great time in the U.S."


He arrived in Cross City on
Monday via US 19 from Per-
ry and his next stop is Crys-
tal River, where he hopes to
see some manatees.

Dixie County is apparently
becoming quite a hub for
cross-country bicyclists be-
cause of the convenience of
the nature trail. A few.
months ago, a group travel-
ling from Celebration, Flori-
da to Los Angeles on a fund-
raising expedition stopped
to visit. The Advocate staff
wishes Mr. Ohlendorf a safe
and wonderfully memorable
trip.

A belated thank you


The Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans
Affairs recognize the existence of five branches of our mili-
tary These are the Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard and
Air Force. Recently, however, Congress has become aware
that another deserving group has largely been left out.

The United States Merchant Marine service consists of the
personnel who staff our commercial shipping vessels.
Theirs is a collective responsibility for keeping internation-
al trade going, both in peacetime and wartime.

That's right, Merchant Marine personnel don't stay in dry
dock when the shooting starts. And in World War II, their
service was especially important to our victory, both in the
European and Pacific theaters.

The.Merchant Marine-staffed ships do not duplicate the role
of the US Navy The Navy seeks out and confronts the ene-
my, sinking ships, launching artillery, missiles and aircraft
at land-based targets and getting our troops to overseas des-
tinations. The Merchant Marine gets commodities delivered
in peacetime and supplies to the troops in time of war.

Getting everything from guns to grub to the troops means
getting these things to where the troops are. And that means
going where the enemy are, too, which involves negotiating
mine fields and dodging enemy fire. The enemy knows that,
absent these essential reinforcements, our advancing forces
would soon be stopped or forced to retreat. Sinking a mer-
chant vessel is as important to the enemy as torpedoing a de-
stroyer when there's a war on.

During World War II, we had troops to supply from almost
every ocean on the planet, and that often meant sailing into
hostile waters. But the Merchant Mariners were not hesitant
to engage the enemy in defense of their cargo. Their ships
were outfitted with guns and their personnel were trained in
their use. The Mariners actually sustained a higher percent-
age (not to be confused with a higher total number) of casu-
alties than any other branch of service, with one in 26 being
killed in action.

This in no way diminishes the heroic service of Army, Navy
and Marine Corps personnel (the Air Force was part of the
Army during World War II), this is simply to point out that
Merchant Mariners experienced combat-related risks in de-
fense of our country similar to those experienced by other
service personnel. ;

While Franklin D. Roosevelt was President, plans were re-
portedly in the works to extend veterans benefits to Mer-
chant Mariners who served in combat zones; but FDR died
four months before World War II ended. As it turned out,
with a handful of exceptions, the Mariners received little
more than a thank you letter from the government for their
wartime service.

After earlier efforts to compensate World War II Mariners
for their efforts didn't make it through Congress, Represen-
tative Bob Filner (D-CA) earlier this year introduced HR 23,
which seeks to grant specific benefits to Merchant Seamen
who saw action in World War II. The bill passed by a voice
vote and is now before the Senate. For the benefit of the cost-
conscious, granting a monthly stipend of $1,000 to each sur-
viving Merchant Seaman who qualifies would set each indi-
vidual American back about a buck and a quarter a year. In
terms of our current federal budget, this barely even quali-
fies as pocket change.'

Senator Bill Nelson's address is 716 Hart Office Building,
Washington, DC 20510. Senator Mel Martinez can be reached
at 356 Russell Senate Office Building, Washington DC 20510.
The House of Representatives has passed the bill, now our
Senators need to hear from you.

I'm sure there will be a lot of details to be worked out, par-
ticularly with regard to how we determine which Merchant
Seamen qualify, but I'll be glad to share what information I
have. You can contact me at (352) 498-1246, or if you have a
computer, simply Google H 23.


They got $787 billion, you got $13 a week


by Kathy McKinney

S *-, I can't find it right now, but I was going to
pull up the first column I wrote about the sec-
ond 787 billion dollar "stimulus" package--Bush
had the "little" one, remember at only $168 billion--and
quote myself on how it was a bad idea and how it had no
chance of working. I think I wrote something about how it's
only design was to payback political cronies and to grow
government (thereby creating more political cronies), and
that the normal working stiff wouldn't benefit at all. At the
risk of sounding childish, nyah nyah nyah nyah. Even the
liberals have figured it out by now: I was right. I told you so.
Like the bumper sticker says, "How's that hope n' change
working for you?"

Now some of the more idiotic voices in Wash- "A man's I
ington are making noises about "needing an-
other stimulus," because the first two weren't pas
"big enough." Oh sure we do. Because send-
ing all of our hard-earned money to govern- mo. To uUl
ment fatcats who look at us much the way fox- wasteful squ
es look at chickens just makes us oh-so-happy. the poor m
We don't need money Please. Just make sure
Nancy Pelosi gets to go back on another week- ts sure
long jaunt to Italy on our tax dollar. It just
makes a tingle run up our legs to see the Oba- urgent tasks
mas jetting around Europe while we're home
working two jobs trying to support our fami-
lies....and them. We don't need vacations. You
let our "representatives" have them. (Yeah,
O.K., I'm feeling a little sarcastic today.)

It didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the "stimu-
lus" wasn't going to work. Let's do a gut check, seeing as
you and I are the salt of the earth: consumers, you know, the
little people, the unwashed masses who make the economy
go. If it excites us then the odds are, it will "stimulate" oth-
er consumers and it will help fix the economy, right?

Scenario A: The government decides to spend 787 billion
dollars to help the economy come back. Common sense pre-
vails and someone smart figures out that there are around
103 million households in the country They split the 787 bil-
lion dollars equally and send every house in America a
check for a little over seven thousand dollars. Whaticould
you do with seven grand? If you're fairly average, you could
pay off all your credit card debt. Would that stimulate your
spending? Would it make your life better? Would it untie
that little knot that's always there, worrying at you when
the mail comes? Oh you bet it would. Or maybe you don't
carry plastic. Could that pay off your truck? Help you get
that abcessed tooth fixed that you've been trying to ignore
for months? Maybe you could add a deck to your house, or
buy new carpet, or a boat, or take a trip somewhere with
your family. Maybe you could just put it in the bank, and
sleep a little better knowing it's there, just in case.


Dear Editor,
I have just come to the scariest
realization. I have been trying
to buy ammunition. I do not
hunt but enjoy target practicing.
I also have a gun for self-protec-
tion and hold a concealed hand-
gun permit.

It has become increasingly hard
to find ammunition. Wal-Mart
has said they cannot get it any-
more. Other gun shops are
telling me the same. A few have
a limited supply, but are not con-
fident that this will continue.

I have just spent two hours on
the internet and site after site
say "temporarily out of stock".
Others say they are backordered
and it will take over 2 weeks to
send an order.

What is happening? The ru-
mors amongst dealers and the
like are saying they are afraid
the U.S. Government may have
something to do with the short-
age. Are they afraid that the or-
dinary, law-abiding citizens will
take up arms in protest? The
government is becoming larger
every day. They want to own the
banks, car industry, and they
want to manage healthcare.
They cannot make a profit with
the US Post Office; Medicare is
full of corruption and misman-
agement. Why would any rea-
sonable adult believe they could
run anything? When will it
stop?

I strongly believe in my 2nd
Amendment rights. I will not
stand for our government or any
other government telling me
that I cannot own a firearm.
Maybe their strategy is...you
can own a firearm but we will
not let you buy ammunition.

I am by nature not paranoid but
after stopping at several gun
shops and hearing the same
thing, I am becoming worried.

If I am worrying for nothing,
please let me know. If I can buy
ammunition from you, please


give me a call. If this is just a
shortage in materials, etc. Let
me know.

I am extremely worried about
our present government leaders.
Our president believes he is a
celebrity a movie star and is
only interested (in my opinion)
in campaigning for his next
term, raising taxes and making
it almost impossible for our chil-
dren and grandchildren to expe-
rience what we have lived. We
have enjoyed INDEPENDENCE,
FREEDOM, THE UNITED
STATES BEING THE LEADER
OF THE FREE WORLD, FREE
ENTERPRISE, FREEDOM OF
RELIGION (the extreme liberals
have taken the separation of
church and state to an all new
level) and THE FREEDOM OF
CHOICE. Will it just disappear?

Our children and grandchildren
will only experience an over-
grown government wanting to
control everything. Do they
consider all of us stupid? Do
they believe we are incapable of
making our own decisions? Ap-
parently, you must be among the
elitist to have these privileges.
Our children will eventually ex-
perience taxes so high that they
will never be able to get ahead.
The country that I love will be-
come The Socialist USA.

We can no longer worry about
what party we register. Republi-
can, Democrat, or Independent.
What we need to worry about is
all of us being citizens of this
great country and keeping it the
greatest on this earth. Do not
let our elected officials run our
lives. Don't believe for a second
that they know better. Stand up
for what you believe in. Do not
just sit back and watch them de-
stroy us.

Speak up, petition, demonstrate,
do something. We have to be
heard.

Sincerely,
Chris Parr
Suwannee FL

Scenario B: Somebody smart figures that instead of sending
out checks, it would be easier and cheaper and would still
add up to 787 billion to just to let everyone keep all of their
tax money....all of it....for nine months. You would get to
bring home your entire paycheck. If you're one of the self-
employed people who pay quarterly because you have your
own business, what could you do with all that money? You
might be able to hire somebody else, or to buy some new
equipment, or to pay off some debt. If you're a working
stiff, wouldn't it be nice to get all of the money you work
for? You could maybe upgrade your satellite service and get
HBO and Showtime. You could save it up and pay your
mortgage a few months in advance. You could get the cat
neutered, or go to Foodland every week without obsessively
counting the items in your cart, worried that you'll "go
over." You could stop worrying so much
bor Is not only his about the electric bill. Maybe you could
capital but his Ife. get your hair or nails done every week.
Maybe you could spend Saturday fishing

William Booth


Feel that? Feel your head spinning
around, thinking about all the possibili-
ties? It's sort of like buying a lottery tick-
et. It's worth the $1.00 just for all the fun
of imagining what you'd do with the
money if you won.


Quite, er.....stimulating, isn't it?

Scenario C: The government decides to spend the money on
"infrastructure"...basically, they send it down the line to all
of the little politicians under them. Senators get new furni-
ture. Governors buy new limos and spray-on-tan machines.
You may get a road out of it, or a new water plant (that they
were going to have to build anyway), or Tallahassee may get.
a bridge for turtles, or Miami might get a new stadium. The
influx of cash will help replace the revenue lost to govern-
ments because of the economy, so that they (unlike us) won't
have to tighten their belts much. They can keep going on
"conferences" in fancy resorts, paying themselves and their
flunkies six-figure salaries, giving jobs to their sons-in-law
and buying themselves outrageous pensions on our dime. A
few construction companies and engineers make some mon-.
ey, but it probably won't affect you directly. All that money
is primarily used so that political types can say "look what I
did--vote for me!" during the next election. Chunks of it
goes to pay off political groups like ACORN, unions, and the
only people who get hired are consultants hired to write
grants to....wait for it....get more stimulus money. Is that
how YOU would have spent your $7,000? Are you feeling the
excitement yet? Do you feel the urge to go shopping? No,
me either.

We don't need a new "stimulus." What we need is a new
bunch of politicians. who realize that we the people can
spend our own money better than they can. Vote 'em out.


Dear Congressman Boyd:

My name is Caroline Dauzat,
I was born and raised in
Graceville, Florida. This let-
ter is to inform you of my
disappointment in your re-
cent support of the Ameri-
can Clean Energy and Secu-
rity Act (H.R. 2454). Your be-
trayal of your constituency, I
pray, will not go unnoticed. I
don't believe you can consid-
er yourself a Blue Dog De-
mocrat, anymore. North
Florida is not an area that
identifies with the policies
created and promoted by the
likes of Nancy Pelosi. Please
start listening to your con-
stituency.

As a member of a family
business that owns lumber
manufacturing facilities in
the Panhandle of Florida, I
want to ask- do you realize
what a horrific impact this
bill will have on the forest
products industry? Accord-
ing to the Florida Depart-
ment of Forestry, the forest
products industry in Florida
generates approximately $'
16.7 billion in output, $7.0
billion in value added in-
come, employs 89,000 per-
sons, and is a leading eco-
nomic engine in many rural
counties especially in our
part of the state. According
to the Heritage Foundation
research on this bill (H.R.
2454), the forest products in-
dustry will be one of the
most negatively impacted
sectors, losing almost 70,000
jobs by 2035. Do you realize
how valuable the forest prod-
ucts industry is to your con-
stituency?

Beyond the forest products
industry, the simply, the sim-
ple impact this bill will have


on all Americans is onerous,
including higher utility
rates, higher gas prices,
higher costs to sell one's
home, and all the added cost
that businesses will be
forced to pass on to us, the
consumer. This additional
burden, combined with the
out of control spending that
is occurring in Washington
leads me to believe you are
completely devoid of the val-
ues your constituency hold
important. We are in a reces-
sion and added bureaucracy
is not the answer. Higher
taxes are not the answer.
Growing the government is
not the answer. Belt tighten-
ing and returning to policies
based on personal responsi-
bility are the answer. Shun-
ning entitlement programs
is the answer. Committing to
limited government is the
answer. Maintaining low tax-
es to promote innovation
and investment in our coun-
try, that is the answer.

Furthermore, it is being
widely reported that you and
your colleagues did not read
this bill. Why are we the peo-
ple paying you for this in-
competence and lackluster
performance? It is your job
to understand and read
these enormous life chang-
ing bills that this adminis-
tration is promoting, you sir,
need to be voted out of of-
fice. It is time for the term
"career politician" to expire.

Thanks to your lack of prin-
ciples, we now have to fight
this bill in the Senate. It nev-
er should have made it this
far because it is bad policy

Sincerely
Caroline McRae Dauzat

Trail /i ers

By Bonnie Wilson
I have enjoyed many great
trail rides over the years
with the Levy County Horse
Club. This week I'd like to
share one more of my fa-
vorite places to trail ride
and that is San Felasco. By
going north on Highway 349
to Highway 340. Turn right
on highway 340 heading east
until you dead-end at the
stop sign at highway 27/41
in High Springs. Turn left to
the traffic light, highway 27,
and turn right which will
take you onto highway 441
to Alachua. You'll travel
past 1-75 approximately2.6
miles and go over an over-
pass with railroad tracks be-
low. The first road on your
right will be Progress Blvd.
that leads you through an
Industrial Park onto a non-
paved road to the entrance
of San Felasco Hammock
Preserve State Park.

Prairies, Forests, and
Swamps, oh my!
Now at 7,000 acres with the
newly acquired Fox Pond
site, the San Felasco Ham-
mock Preserve State Park is
one of the finest examples
of the climax mesic ham-
mocks remaining in Flori-
da. The park is located to
the northwest of
Gainesville, in north Flori-
da's Alachua County The
limestone outcrops and ex-
treme changes in elevation
provide conditions for at
least 18 biological communi-
ties within the hammock,
including areas of sandhill,
hydric hammock, upland
pine, and swamp. Thanks to
the region's karst topogra-
phy, sinkholes, steephead
springs, ponds, and small
lakes dot the landscape.
Blues Creek, Turkey Creek,
and Cellon Creek all enter
San. Felasco from outside
the park boundary and flow
through the park. finally
dropping into swallows,
which drain back into the
aquifer.


My friends and I have en-
countered a few bicycle rid-
ers as our paths cross on
our adventuresome trails
however we have discovered
our horses do not mind
them as long as they can see
them coming. Although our
paths do cross on occasion,
they are definitely on sepa-
rate paths. One of our fa-
vorite trails is the orange
trail. It winds up through


some of the beautiful and
hilly tree lined trails that
are exceptionally wonderful
to climb. I also love the ride
down to the creek and
through the woods. It is tru-
ly astonishing and inspir-
ing. The crossing of the
creek is great for the horses
to grab a drink of water and
splash and play for a mo-
ment. Dusty, my blue-eyed
wonder horse, loves going
through water and when
ever someone's horse refus-
es to cross the creek, Dusty
is more than happy to lead
the way.

One particular time I clear-
ly remember was a few
years back when San Felas-
co was covered in water. My
friends and I all agreed that
a little water was no prob-
lem. So we all headed out on
the trail. However it became
apparent that there indeed
was more than a little water.
I soon discovered that it was
more like a lake. I was a bit
intimidated by the amount
of water I saw. Dave, my
husband said; "just keep
looking at the tops of the
fence posts, which was all
that was visible, and do not
look at the water to your
left." Well, to my left was an
ocean, and I do not swim!
Oh boy! Telling me to not
look left was like telling our
child "don't touch that" and
you know every child does,
including me! The water -
was now up to Dusty's belly
and rising. Oh dear! I tried
to keep my eyes focused on
the fence post ahead of me
and continued forward. We
did make it to dryer land
and I was very thankful. I
guess it wasn't as bad as I
thought but I just promised
myself next time I'd pack a
pair of water wings just to
be on the safe side! The wa-
ter on the trails that we en-
countered on this ride is not
the norm, but was due to
heavy rains and flooding in
the area.

San Felasco is an extraordi-
narily awesome place to
trail ride and I know you
would enjoy its beauty and
charm if you get an oppor-
tunity to visit. I feel ex-
tremely lucky to live in
northern Florida and be
able to not only own horses
but to be able to ride in our
remarkable state forest and
state parks in Florida.
There is so much to see
right here in our own back-
yards. You just need to be a
little adventuresome. Until
next time, Happy Trails!

Active bears roam for

food and mates in the

summer

A woman in Lehigh Acres in
Lee County had a surprise "
Monday morning when she
encountered a black bear
outside of her work. Del
Bagwell told officers 'with
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) she was working at
Country Cleaners in the
Sunshine Plaza when she
went outside at approximate-
ly 7:20 a.m. A
black bear .- -77
came running
around the
corner of th vl ..
building aidd '
bumped into
her.

"She was not
knocked to
the ground or
injured," said
FWC Officer
Joanne
Adams. "She
said she
looked at the bear, and the
bear looked at her. Then she
raised her arms and backed
up slowly to the store door."

Bagwell then went inside the
store and the bear ran off,
-Adams said.

"M' Baei adidldthe right-
thing," said Dave Telesco,
FWC Bear Management Pro-
gram coordinator. "She did
not panic or run; she backed
away slowly, giving the bear
a clear escape route to run
away"'.

Seeing a bear in unfamiliar
surroundings can be a sur-
prising phenomenon. Even
though the Florida black
bear has increased in popu-
lation in the past few
decades, it is still considered
a threatened species in
Florida. As development en-
croaches on its habitat, it is
not unusual for bears to be
seen near human popula-
tions, but it is highly unusu-
al for humans to come face-
to-face with a bear.

However, if you do en-
counter a black bear at close


range, take the following
precautions: Remain stand-
ing straight up; back up
slowly; speak in a calm, as-
sertive voice; do not run or
play dead; and leave the bear
a clear escape route.

Summer is a very active
time for bears. They are
searching for a variety of
fruits and other seasonal
foods that grow throughout
their range. Summer is also
breeding season, when bears
search-far and wide for
mates. Also, in late summer,
juvenile bears disperse from


their mother's home range
and look for new habitat. All
of those factors can bring
bears into populated areas
where they normally would
not venture.

When wildlife appears in
residential communities, the
FWC urges residents to re-
ffioV~pqprsecure anything
that might attract animals,
such as garbage cans, pet
food, birdseed, outdoor grills
and compost bins. If a bear
continues to come into an
area after all attractants
have been removed and cre-
ates problems for residents,
then the FWC will consider
trapping the bear. Capturing
bears is an option in circum-
stances where bears are
causing a conflict or there is
a safety risk.

Residents may call any FWC
regional office, if they-have
any questions about bears,
or they may call the FWC's
Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-
404-3922 to report wildlife
conflicts.

George "Teddy" Kight, was a wonderful man. He was a de-
voted husband, father, brother and grandfather. He left a
legacy to our family that will live on forever. His life was
enriched by the presence of so many great friends; friends
he left behind to help our family through this very difficult
time. We would like to express our heartfelt thanks and
gratitude to each and every one of you for the many flow-
ers, cards and phone calls and most especially your prayers
in our time of need. Each of you have such a special place
in our hearts and now he lives on in all of our hearts.
Sincerely,
The Kight Family


Ban on commercial harvest of
freshwater turtles goes into
effect July 20
Reports of large turtle har-
vests from a lake in Central
Florida approximately 18
months ago led the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) to
pass the most restrictive tur-
tle harvest rule in the nation.
On July 20, commercial tur-
tle harvesting will no longer
be legal in Florida.

"We determined there was
the possibility the species
could not withstand the pres-
sure from unchecked har-
vest," said Tim Breault, di-
rector of the FWC's Division
of Habitat and Species Con-
servation. "This new rule
will conserve Florida's di-
verse turtle population in
perpetuity"


'Individuals will be allowed to
take one freshwater turtle
per day per person from the
wild for noncommercial use.
People cannot'transport
more than'one turtle per day.
The rule prohibits taking
turtles from the wild that are
listed on Florida's imperiled
species list. Individuals can-
not take species that look
similar to the imperiled
species; these include com-
mon snapping turtles and
cooters. In addition, the ban
includes collecting freshwa-
ter turtle eggs.
Some turtle farms depend on
collection of wild freshwater
turtles. With the new rule,
turtle farms, under a tightly
controlled process, will be al-
lowed to collect turtles to es-
tablish reproduction in cap-
tivity so that farms can be-
come self-sustaining to
lessen their dependence on
collection of turtles from the
wild.


SMickey D & Friends Put On An

Amazing Show





- '.* a "

- n-











The benefit concert put on by Mike Desmond, Hardee Mey-
er, Roger Talley, Chuck Scarberry, Randy Wiers, & Charly
Wilber was a great success.
The food was yummy, and the entertainment was fun. Sue
Ice won the 50/50 and in a great show of charity, turned
around and gave it to the Dixie County Music Department.
Mickey D & Friends are planning another show, so keep
your eye on the Dixie Advocate for future dates.


Wyatt and Braxton Knight showed off their fishing skills
on a recent trip on the Gulf with their Papa Wayne. Both
boys caught their first redfish!
Although Braxton's wasn't quite big enough to keep, (17"),
we were able to get thsi picture before having to throw it
back in the ocean. Wyatt's fish was 24" long, and fried up
real nice that evening. Wyatt also caught his first trout that
day measuring a total of 19" long! Greatjob, boys!

(1) Do not walk behind me,
for I may not lead. Do not
,walk ahead of me, for
I may not follow. Do not
walk beside me either. Just
pretty much leave me
alone.

(2) It's always darkest before
dawn. So if you're going to
steal your
neighbor's newspaper, that's
the time to do it.

(3) Don't be irreplaceable. If
you can't be replaced, you
can't be promoted.

(4) Always remember that
you're unique. Just like
everyone else.

(5) Never test the depth of
the water with both feet.

(6) If you think nobody
cares if you're alive, try
missing a couple of car
payments.

(7) Before you criticize
someone, you should walk a
mile in their shoes.
That way, when you criticize
them, you're a mile away
and you have their
shoes.

Cross City Clean
Project Set For July
25
Former outstanding Dix-
ie County athlete and Uni-
versity of Florida place
kicker; John Williams, is
stepping up to support the
"Cross City Clean Project".
Mr. Prince B. Oliver and
other alumni of Oliver
Training School are also
helping with this wonderful
project.

This community-wide
clean-up project, started by
Williams, is committed to
restoring pride and respect
back to the community
Your help is needed in what
will be the first stage of this
process. A fund is being set
up at Bank of America to
help with this project and
everyone is encouraged to
give. There will be a clean-
up and community fun day
held July 25th beginning at
8:00 a.m. and going until 7:30
p.m.

Clean up will start at 8
a.m. going until noon. At
2:00 p.m., John Williams will
speak to the youth and


will eat for a day. Teach him
how to fish, and
he will sit in a boat and
drink beer all day.
(10) If you lend someone $20
and never see that person
again, it was
probably a wise investment.

(11) If you tell the truth, you
don't have to remember any-
thing.

(12) Some days you're the
bug; some days you're the
windshield.

(13) Everyone seems normal
until you get to know them.

(14) The quickest way to
double your money is to fold
it in half and put it
back in your pocket.

(15) A closed mouth gathers
no foot.

(16) There are two theories
to arguing with women. Nei-
ther one works.

(17) Generally speaking, you
aren't learning much when
your lips are moving.

(18) Experience is some-
thing you don't get until just
after you need it.

(19) Never miss a good
chance to shut up.

cumstances, take a sleeping
pill and a laxative on
the same night.

eclipse on the 21st may bring
changes in a relationship.

Gemini

for excitement and opportuni-
ties, Gemini. Good luck follows

revelation may come from out of
nowhere around the solar
eclipse in Cancer on the 21st!

Virgo
A full moon and lunar eclipse in
Capricorn on the 7th may pro-
vide a memorable emotional ex-
perience. At the least, it will be
a good time for friends and fami-
ly fun. Great opportunities in
your career occur between the
5th and the 31st. Allow yourself


to be confident without being
too self-critical.

Libra
There may be sudden and unex-
pected events around the two
eclipses this month. Go with the
flow, Libra! Your career is high-
lighted with favorable results
equal to your efforts. The solar
eclipse on the 21st in Cancer
may provide just what you want!

5th boosting your sex appeal!

things, what you're known for,
and this month provides that

and a solar eclipse in Cancer on
the 21st.Be confident, and use
your powerful intuition to nego-
tiate surprisingor sudden

garding the big picture this
month. A lunar eclipse on the

noticed around this moon, so
gracious, agreeable behavior

lar eclipse on the 21st may bring
clarity to an issue at work. Sud-
den change-is possible!


Aquarius
Others may seem a bit too emo-
tional at times due to a lunai
eclipse on the 7th and a solar
eclipse on the 21st. Diplomacy
will serve you better than con-
frontation. Look forward to
Venus' transit in Gemini from
the 5th until August 1st. You be-
come a people magnet, Aquar-
ius!


Pisces
July may offer some surprises,
Pisces, compliments of a lunar
eclipse on the 7th in Capricorn

subject matter of any dreams
around these moons. Relation-
ships and your creative abilities

NATION'S FIRST REGULATION BANNING
ADDITIVES IN HONEY

TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son today announced that his de-
partment has instituted the first
regulation in the nation and
perhaps the world prohibiting
any additives, chemicals or adul-
terants in honey that is pro-
duced, processed or sold in Flori-
da. The regulation, which takes
effect July 14, provides the first-
ever "Standard of Identity" for
honey.


"We want to assure consumers
that the product that they are
buying is pure," Bronson said.
"Too often in the past, honey has
been cut with water or sugar,
and sometimes even contaminat-
ed with insecticides or antibi-
otics. In the future, when you're
paying for honey in this state,
pure honey is what you will get."

State Rep. Alan Hays, of Umatil-
la, has been a major advocate of
the new regulation, which is sup-
ported by Florida's honey indus-
try, and joined Bronson at a
press conference here today to
unveil the new rule.

"I am pleased that the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services
is leading the way
for all America in Hi
establishing this
standard by which
all honey may now
be measured," Hays
said. "Commission-
er Bronson and the
leaders of the honey
industry beekeep-
ers and honey
processors are to
be applauded for t|
their leadership in
protecting not only
the health of Florid-
ians but also in pro-
tecting this industry
which is so vital to
the production of
food products for all
mankind." CES.
DVI
Under terms of the
new regulation, hon-
ey containing any-
thing other than the
"natural food prod-
uct resulting from
the harvest of nec- ij
tar by honeybees" is % ".a:
considered an adul-
terated or inisla-
beled product. Such
products are subject FREE
to a "stop sale" order

in which a manufacturer, proces-
sor or merchant would be served
with an order prohibiting the
product's sale. Rppeat offenders
would face fines of up to $500 per
violation.

Florida is the fourth-leading
honey producing state in the
country with cash receipts to
beekeepers of more than $15 mil-
lion in 2008 and an industry that
has an economic impact estimat-
ed at $40 million a year. It em-
ploys more than 500 Floridians.

As a result of a flood of adulter-
ated honey from overseas into
Florida in 2006, a petition was
submitted to the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) later
that year by five major honey
producers and processors, ask-
ing the federal agency to estab-
lish a U.S. standard of identity
for honey. Two years later, the
FDA responded that due to other
pressing matters, it would be un-
able to review the petition.

At that point, the industry asked

GROUNDBREAKING

SETTLEMENT IN

MORGAN STANLEY

GAS PRICE GOUGING

INVESTIGATION

TALLAHASSEE, FL (July. 13,
2009) Attorney General Bill
McCollum and Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson today announced
a groundbreaking $2.275 mil-
lion settlement with Morgan
Stanley Capital Group Inc.
and a subsidiary, TransMon-
taigne Product Services Inc.
The settlement resolves a
price gouging investigation
into price increases for fuel
in the aftermath of Hurri-
cane Ike last September.
The multimillion dollar set-
tlement is the largest ever
paid under the state's price-
gouging law and may be the
largest price gouging settle-
ment obtained nationally to
date.

"Price gouging victimizes
people already dealing with a
disaster, and big business
needs to be held accountable
for any involvement in this
behavior," said Attorney
General McCollum. "I appre-
ciate Morgan Stanley's
efforts to resolve this matter
and set a high standard for
the rest of the fuel suppliers
in the state."

"The message here is that
we will confront any in-
stances of our citizens
being exploited during an
emergency," Commissioner
Bronson said. "And if
we find that a retailer is sim-
ply passing on artificially in-
flated costs that he or she has
had to incur, we will continue
digging until we get to the
source of it."

Morgan Stanley is a whole-
saler of motor fuel in Flori- -
da, and TransMontaigne pro-
vides marketing, storage and
transportation services for
Morgan Stanley's gasoline.
Last September, during a de-
clared state of emergency for
Hurricane Ike, fuel prices in
Florida increased by $1.60 a
gallon or more virtually
overnight, triggering thou-
sands of complaints to both
Commissioner Bronson and
Attorney General McCol-
lum's price-gouging
hotlines. Investigators for
the two offices determined
that for the most part, retail-
ers were simply passing on
price increases that they
were forced to pay by their
suppliers.

Today's settlement is be-
lieved to be the first case in
the nation in which a fuel
supplier and not a retailer -
has agreed to pay unjust en-
richment and civil penalties
for increasing fuel prices
during a declared state of
emergency. Because no gaso-
line retailers were associated
with the investigation, con-
sumer restitution from retail-
ers was not possible.

Ruth Akins


Ruth (Sayler) Akins was born on May 12, 1941 in Free-
man, South Dakota and passed away on
July 9, 2009. She was the second of
five children born to Ruben and
Martha Sayler. Her siblings include:
Roland Sayler, Violet Korn, Marion
Auch and Ramona Hoff.

On September 2, 1962, Ruth was
united in marriage to Stanley Mar-
ion Akins. She had her first of
three children on December 2, 1964.
Scott Allen. Her second son, Russell
Leonard was born March 19, 1968.
Sharon Magdalena, Ruth's baby girl.
joined the family on March 28, 1970.

Ruth was very proud of her children's choice in spous-
es. Kim & Edgar were more like a daughter and a son.
They gave her three beautiful grandchildren, Courtney, -
Cody and Shelby. Her life revolved around her family
and friends and the Lord. Ruth was a member of Bethel
Church of Christ.

She will always be remembered for her brilliant smile,
generous nature, her laugh, and opening her kitchen to
anyone. She was a beautician by profession, but as we
all know, she was more than a hairdresser. She was the
best friend anyone could ever have, she was everyone's
second mama, and has been responsible for feeding vir-
tually everyone in Gilchrist County at one time or an-
other. Her pots, her kitchen, her home and her heart
were always full.

She was preceded in death by her son, Russell, her fa-
ther Ruben Sayler and her mother, Martha Sayler.

Funeral Services will be held on Monday, July 13, 2009
at 10:00 A.M. at Bethel Church of Christ with Mr. David
Halter conducting the service. Interment to follow at
