The American flag was too
tall. Too large for the
room's ceiling, it slumped
forlorn in the corner where
Representative Alan Boyd's
Assistant Travis Hart
placed it after giving up on
the effort of making it
stand tall at the Women's
Club in Cross City where
Alan Boyd held a Town Hall
meeting on health care on
Monday morning. The
Stars & Stripes was ob-
scured by the TV camera
crews, the reporters, the
politician and his en-
tourage, but the citizens of
Dixie verbally took up the
Colors, each one speaking in
favor of liberty and freedom
and against the proposed
government takeover of the
health care industry.

In the standing-room only
crowd that spilled outside,
not'a single voice was heard
in favor of House Bill 3200,
"America's Affordable
Health Choices Act of 2009."

Not one.

After several warnings
about being polite and al-
lowing civil discourse, Rep.
Boyd told the packed room
that "Of all the town hall
meetings I've done in this'
,area, I've never had one
with this many people." He
gave a short talk outlining
his belief that the current
health system is too ineffi-
cient, citing insurance com-
panies who refuse coverage,
for pre-exiting conditions
and the rising costs involved
in health care. "I'm con-
cerned about the debt, too,"
he said, as someone in the,
audience erupted in laugh-
ter. He continued, "We don't
like someone telling us-
where we can get our health
care--we like that--and we're
going to keep that." He held
up a copy of HR 3200 as a ,
prop and said, "I cannot
support this bill in the ver-
sion it is now," and said
"'We can do better."

He then outlined the re-,
quirements that the "Blue
Dog" democrats claim that
they will require out of any
health legislation that they
support. First, that "If you
have a plan you like, you get
to keep it. Second, it must
stop the "spiraling" costs of
health care. Third, that it
must be deficit neutral, and
last, that it must cover, the
estimated 46 million Ameri-
cans who are currently
uninsured. He then allowed
questions from the audi-
ence.

�'-" -' saw was when you were standing back of C
after signing Cap & Trade and you looked li

good-looking man." Boyd replied, could
- say that last part louder?"

Citizens from Suwannee, Cross City, Horseshoe, Old Town,
Keaton Beach, Trenton...even Pumpkin Swamp...packed the Women's
Club Building to express their views on health care reform.


Margery Schneider, of
Cross City referred to those
uninsured, asking "Why are
we not enforcing the law
with these illegal aliens?
Our Sheriff should be able
to check their ID's just like
he checks ours. Are you go-
ing to assure me that
they're not going to get tax-
payer-funded health care?"
Rep. Boyd told her that ille-
gals will not be covered un-
der any health care bill.

Environmental activist
Joyce Tarnow followed up,
saying that "even though
that line you read (in HR
3200 saying that illegals
wouldn't be covered) is in
there, it's in some of the
bills. Congress has not en-
forced E-verify and has
stripped the powers from
the stimulus bill to protect
against illegals, and Num-
bers USA gives you a failing
grade on immigration. If
our congressman won't
stand up for us, then we're
lost."

Boyd replied to her concern
with "I've read to, you from
the bill where it says illegals
won't be covered." A voice'
in the crowd said that "12
million of the 46 million
uninsured are illegals."
Rep. Boyd said, "No, they're
not." However, according to
the 2006 Census that 46 mil-
lion uninsured does include
around 20-30%, or 10 million
non-native or non-natural-
ized people currently living
in the US, i.e. illegal immi-
grants.

Keith Roberts of Horseshoe
said "I promised my family
that I was coming to your
first Town Hall meeting and
that my job was to get
thrown out." Mr. Roberts
didn't get bounced, but he
did express his distaste for
the "cofldescending" and
dismissive form letters that
he receives from Boyd's of-
fice after voicing his opin-
ion. He also asked, "What
has the government
done that you think
that is so good that
we're going to pat-
tern,it (health care) -
after? Amtrak? So-
cial Security?
Medicare? Rep. Boyd
replied, looking Mr.'
Roberts up and down,
* and asked his own
question, "How old
are you?" Mr. Roberts
replied, "Sixty-six."
Boyd said, "So you're
on Social Security
and Medicare?" Mr.
Roberts said yes and
Boyd moved on to the
next question with-
out answering him.

Jennifer Boyles of
Suwannee, a nurse at
the VA, said, "The VA
g I ever system wastes a lot of
Dbama money I know. I've
ke you been there a long
a time." She also said
you that she wanted peo-
ple to understand
that in govern-
ment health care,
that "The govern-
ment is allowed to
use foreign doc-
tors who don't
have an American
license. They
work at the VA."


Rep. Boyd expressed his dis-
belief of this and Ms. Boyles
said incredulously, "You
didn't-know that?"

Leslie Fafard told the story
of re-financing her home to
pay for a surgery and ex-
plained that her surgeon's
bill was 1/3 of what it would
have been if she had had in-
surance. "I want to have my
relationship with my doctor,
not the government," she
said, "I want anyone in gov-o
ernment to have to partici-
pate in whatever plan is
adopted." The crowd erupt-
ed in applause at this.
Rep. Boyd explained that the
federal government, "like
any other large employer,
like the military, Homeland
Security.. the Department of
Agriculture...there are a
number of private sector,
plans that the employees
can choose from."


"WE WANT THE SAME
PLAN AS YOU!" burst from
a member of the crowd.
"Come up here," Rep. Boyd
told the speaker The man
introduced himself as Den-
nis, from Cross City, and re-
peated, "We should have the
same insurance that you
have." Rep. Boyd asked
him, "Who do you work
for?" Dennis replied, "I'm
unemployed; I lost my job."
He then explained that he
was covered under his
wife's policy He repeated to
Rep Boyd," I didn't get an
answer." Boyd said. "If
you're in a plan you get to
keep it."

Henry Richstine'of Old
Town started-to get heated
when he asserted, "There is
some assumption that we're
bound to pass some sort of
health care reform. NO.
WE'RE. NOT!" He added
that "Abortion is not health
care!"

Pastor Ed Ivey also chimed
in, chiding Rep Boyd, "Your
voting record of 96% walk-
ing in lockstep with the de-
mocrats does not represent
the Second District." He
then asked if tort reform for
trial lawyers would be in-
cluded. Boyd replied that
"Tort reform should be on
the table."

Joe Anderson, of Anderson-
Columbia asked "Where are
our great-grandchildren
gonna get the money to bail
us out of debt? If we let
Pelosi and people like that
direct us, we're doomed. I
thought that the Blue Dogs
was guarding the henhouse,
but that ain't been the case
this year. You can't do that
with that bunch of
scoundrels." Boyd didn't re-
ply directly to this but
dodged off into a discussion
of oil dependency

Illegal drug bust


As part of the continuing
investigation of the illegal
sale and distribution of
pharmaceuticals, the Dixie
County Sheriff's Office ar-
rested an additional four in-
dividuals


for their
activity
involving
illegal ;,;
drug
sales.

On Mon-
day, Au-
gust 17,
2009; the
following
were ar-
rested:


Joshua
Briah
Reeves,
23yoa, Cross City - Two
counts, Sale of a Controlled
Substance

Troy E. Rollison, 47yoa,
Cross City - One count, Sale
of a Controlled Substance


Town Hall: Dixie County

tells Boyd "No" to Obamacare


And another one...


As part of an ongoing nar-
cotics investigation that was
begun in June of this year,
Colby R. Driggers of Cross
City was arrested on.a war-
rant in connection with the
investigation. Driggers who
was employed as a Correc-
tional Officer with the Dixie
County Sheriff's Office in
August 2008 was arrested by
Dixie County Investigators
at approximately 2:30PM on
August 13, 2009 and booked
into the Dixie County Jail.
Driggers was charged with
three counts of Selling a
Controlled Substance, in
this case, Oxycodone. Bond
was established at 150,000.

Driggers will remain in the,
Dixie County Jail pending
first appearance or bond.
Due to his recent employ-
ment with the Sheriff's Of-


fice, if
Drig-
gers is
unable
to bond
after
first ap-
pear-
ance, he
will be
trans-
potted
to an-
other jail facility pending
court appearances.

At this time there is no indi-
cation that the narcotics of-
fenses charged involved any
activity associated with his
employment at the Sheriff's
Office. All three of the al-
leged offenses occurred
when Driggers was off-duty.
and away from the Sheriff's
facilities and jail.


And yet another...


An additional arrest was
made on the morning of Au-
gust 18, 2009 as part of .a
continuing investigation
into the illegal sale of phar-,
maceuticals. Walter C.
Willoughby, 24 years old, of
Old Town was arrested this
morning. Sheriff's officials
have been working diligent-
ly in an effort combat the il-
legal sale of pharmaceuti-
cals which have affected so
many individuals recently
This problem has not only
affected Dixie County but
has affected communities
throughout the nation.

Due to the legal;< igin of
these medicatidf6t is very
difficult to combat the ille-
gal sale and possession.
However'several months


worth
of in-
vestiga-
tion is

sulting.
in the
arrests
of sev-
eral in-
dividuals involved in these
,activities.

- Walter C. Willoughby was
arrested and charged with
two counts of Sale of a Con-
trolled Substance and
booked into the Dixie Coun-
ty Jail where he is being
held pending first appear-
ance before the court.

More arrests are expected
later this week.


Man sentenCed in $5.7 Million

identity theft against Anderson-Columbia


Ali Hammoud (36) was sen-
tenced in Tallahassee to 109
months' imprisonment for
engaging in a scheme to de-
fraud the State of Florida of
approximately $5.7 million
in state funds.

In August 2008, Hammoud
was charged with four
counts of wire fraud and
one count of aggravated
identity theft in an indict-
ment alleging that he fraud-
ulently caused state funds
intended as payment to
state vendor, Anderson Co-
lumbia Construction Co., to
.be diverted to and
deposited in bank accounts
controlled by Hammoud.


The indictment alleges that
between June and July 2008,
Hammoud caused a fraudu-
lent payment authorization
form to be submitted to the
Florida Divisioni of Finan-
cial Services changing the
direct deposit account infor-
mation from Anderson Co-
lumbia's actual account at
Wachovia Bank, to Regions
Bank accounts controlled
by Hammoud. The fraudu-
lent payment authorization
was submitted along with a
fictitious letter, drafted on
what appeared to be Re-
gions Bank stationery, au-
thorizing the change.

'See HAMOUD, pg 3


James M. Gardner, 22yoa,
Old Town - Two counts,
Sale of a Controlled
Substance

David R. Appling, 21yoa,
Old Town
- One
count,

ing additional arrests as the
investigation continues.

Viewpoints


Hillary upstaged...by Bill!

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was more than
mildly upset recently when an apparent error in transla-
tion provoked a misunderstanding about who was our na-
tion's ranking diplomat.

Ms. Clinton was traveling abroad and on a stop in the De-
mocratic Republic of the Congo, she was asked by a student
what "Mr. Clinton" thought about a deal between the Congo
and Communist China. At least that's how the translator
delivered the question, and that was all it took to set Hillary
off on a tirade about how she, and not here husband i' as
secretary of state..

"You want me to tell you ivhat my husband thinks?" she de-
.manded. "My husband is not secretary of state, I am! If you
want my opinion, I will tell you my opinion. I will not be
channeling my husband!"

Actually, there was some'confusion as to whether the stu-
dent thought Bill was still president and that Hillary was
his mouthpiece on the foreign circuit, which of course did-
n't make Ms. Clinton feel any better. Well, how many of us
know who's President of the Democratic Republic of the
Congo? (It's Joseph Kabila, who took office after his father
was assassinated in 2001. He was actually elected five years
'later. I didn't know that, either, I just looked it up.)

This situation goes deeper than one isolated incident aris-
ing from an apparent translation error, and I'm not talking
about another of Bill's occasional "bimbo eruptions" that
got his name in the tabloids when he was president. Hillary
was undoubtedly at her peak of personal sensitivity follow-
ing some favorable press on the diplomatic front that Bill
had just received.

Acting in what might be termed a "freelance" role, Mr. Clin-
ton upstaged the Ms. by going to North Korea and securing
the release of two American journalists who had been kid-
napped by Kim Jong-il's thugs on the pretense that they had
crossed into the country illegally. We weren't told what kind
of a deal Bill was authorized to make with the urohy-
menopteron--hopefully he didn't have to OK a nuclear strike
on Honolulu--but it got our former president a lot of good
press at a time when American foreign policy hasn't been
all that successful.

All I know about Hillary Clinton is what I'rve ,Tar-a-id
read for the past 17 years, but from what I've gathered, I
would imagine that Bill's diplomatic success -~iidealing
with an irrational Communist dictator while ,securing the
freedom of two attractive young women wasn't'exactly
something she congratulated him for when he got home
from his Far Eastern junket. I won't go so far as to specu-
late that she might have lapsed into her lamp-throwing
mode, but I'll bet the greeting Bill received wasn't anything
like, "You've had a rough couple of days, Darling, sit down
and relax and let me bring you a tall, cool one."

Now that I think about it, it seems like Henry Kissinger had
a certain amount of success as a freelance diplomat during
the Carter administration, after serving as Secretary of
State under Nixon and Ford. Who knows, Bill Clinton might
actually be onto a new career. It seems a shame that his
vice-president, Al Gore, has made such a hit as the Godfa-
ther of Green, gaining celebrity status while receiving me-
dia awards and scaring the hell out of half the world with
the global warming issue, and here's Bill in danger of be-
coming a forgotten man if he doesn't do something creative.

It seems I've heard Bill Clinton's name mentioned as a pos-
sible Secretary General of the United Nations. It would be
novel for an American to get that job; after all, we're just
supposed to host the facility, support it financially (about 20
to 25%) and endure insults, not be assigned the top job.
Shux, with Bill in charge, he'd be the world's top diplomat,
and Hillary would have to be nice to him.

You don't really think that could happen, now, do you?

Every Week without Fail, Since July'1, 1921
�2009 Dixie County Advocate


Anyway, the new one's name -is Annabelle
Lee. She's not as smart as Sugar was, but
she's sweet. She has one major character
flaw, though....she thinks she's a hunting dog.
From the minute I let her out in the morning
to the minute I manage to drag her wet, sand-
spur-and-tick covered body back into the
house, she's on the trail. She runs around the -
woods surrounding my house constantly,
looking for a deer trail. When she finds one,
she barks. And barks. And barks. And barks.
She runs through the woods as fast as her
short little bassett legs will drag her huge
bassett body, nose to the ground, sounding
more like a fire truck on its way to a fire than
a canine.


I was watching her this morning while watching Meet the
Press and started wondering if maybe Americans have fi-
nally managed to throw off 200 years of breeding. We were
a tough and independent people once. I mean, heck, our
motto was "Don't tread on me!" We were supposed to be the
John Waynes of the world; free, ornery, determined and
maybe a little bit wild when necessary. If you watch the
news much at all, though, it seems more like we've ditched
our John Wayne image for Gov. Cuthbert H. Humphrey (if
you don't get this, you need to go watch McClintock
again...he's the slimy, citified,-too-civilized girly-man that
keeps hitting on Maureen O'Hara.). We seem to have traded
"Don't tread on me" for "What's in it for me?"

Now it seems to me that many Americans are just hanging
around like hound dogs, waiting to see who throws the
biggest hushpuppy off the porch first to see whose hand
we're going to lick. A large group of young people is de-
manding free college tuition, the right to remain on their
parents' health insurance to age 26, and stu-


If ye love wealth better than
liberty, the tranquility of servitude
than the animated contest of
freedom, go from us in peace.
We ask not your counsels or arms.
Crouch down and lick the hands
which feed you. May your chains
sit lightly upon you, and may
posterity forget that you were
our countrymen!"


It gets more than a little old, trying to hunt her down and
drag her off of whatever it is that she's tracking. Apparent-
ly, the deer in the area think it's some sort of game to set
her off, or somehow they know there's no way on Earth that
she could ever catch them, and they've started showing up
in the front yard. This one doe just stood there the other
day until she was sure that Annabelle had spotted her, then
sort of wiggled her tail in a "come play" sort of way and
bounced off into the woods. Annnabelle looked up at me for
just a second with that "Oh, it's ON now" look and charged
off after the doe. When she finally dragged back in she
jumped up on the couch, rolled over on her back with her
feet up in the air and gave this big, exhausted, but contented
doggy sigh and slept for the rest of the afternoon, twitching,
and chasing phantoms of Bambi's daddy in her sleep.

I don't understand why she works so hard going after some-
thing.that she knows she can't catch. Goodness knows, her
chli .~.-iiftfle self~h1i never missed aineal. She's hot hun-
gry She's just....driven, somehow, to work. To pursue her
quarry, and to run it down, come what may. It's in her blood,
I guess. Centuries of hounds were bred to hunt; to chase
down animals for their masters. I suppose that's not some-
thing that you can just throw off for a bottomless bowl of
Puppy Chow.

Toward a True
Post-Racial America

By David Bozeman

Syndicated columnist
Leonard Pitts inadvertently
illustrated what is wrong
with race relations in Amer-
ica today. Detailing -- sur-
prise -- the lingering racism
of Republicans and readers
hostile to his defense of Pro-
fessor Henry Gates, he cited
Republican accusations ("on
the flimsiest of grounds")
that Sonia Sotomayor her-
self had made racist com-
ments. He mentioned the
"racially tinged" rhetoric of
the McCain/Palin campaign
in its final days.

Just by reflex, one could re-
sppnd that Sotomayor did,
indeed, compare a wise Lati-
na to a.white male. Barack
Obama did, in fact, align
himself with a domestic ter-
rorist and a bile-spewing
preacher. Mere mention of
that is, .presumably, the
racist tinge to McCain/Palin
'08. Pitts did not elaborate. If
McCain deserves blame,
however, it should be for not
highlighting Obama's ties
even more.

Such is the hamster-wheel of
American discourse. Lots of
verbal energy is spent get-
ting nowhere. The issue of
race has been hijacked by
the political class, discussed,
ad nauseam, almost always
through the prism of one's

lr s-cND FOR~ WEERS!


political objectives. Racism
is seldom considered ratio-
nally and dispassionately
but is instead used 4s a bat-
tering ram to destroy the op-
position -- and almost exclu-
* sively by the left against
conservatives.

The recent White House
Beer Summit, of course, was
mere political theater meant
to diffuse a political time.
bomb. President Obama has -
yet to emerge as a truly post-
racial president. Instead of
endless bromides about
change and transformations
and policies that emphasize
government activism over
self-sufficiency he could ex-
tol the greatness of Ameri-
ca's fundamental institu-
tions. He could celebrate an
America that elected him ,
with an impressive 53% of
the popular vote to be its-'- . -
leader. His occasional plugs -
for individual responsibility
and fatherhood are lost in
the din of platitudes and .
bumper sticker sloganeer-
ing.


The sad reality of tying race
to politics is that Obama, the
most revered black man in
America, leads a party that,
through its alignment with
the National Education As-
sociation, has repeatedly
blocked enormously popular
voucher and school choice
legislation, most recently in
Washington, DC. Most inner
cities, in fact, under Democ-
rat control, have seen notori-
ously high rates of poverty,


dent loan forgiveness. They're old enough
to drink and call themselves "adults," but
they don't want to "man up" and pay for
their own insurance, I guess. It's easier to
live off of mom and dad or Uncle Sam.
Work is too hard. Those young freeloader-
wannabes aren't fit to lick the boots of the
teenagers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
It's not all young people who are slackers,
we have some fine ones, but the layabouts
are seeming to outnumber the good ones
these days. And it's not just young people.


Big parts of the whole country seem like
SamuelAdams that...adults in name only, sitting around
demanding that someone else make their
life easier, smoother, and trouble-free. They want "free"
health insurance. They want "free" day care. They want
"free" education. They want "free" lunch.. They want guar-
anteed--preferably government-- jobs for life. They want sub-
sidized housing. They want the government to put gas in
their car and food in their fridge. They demand that the
government take stuff away from "the rich" and,give it to
them, saying that it's only fair. And now they've elected a
government who will listen to them and do their bidding in
order to maintain power. Is it any wonder that-the town
halls are full of working-class people enraged at being
forced at federal gunpoint to fund another government give-
away program out of their ever-shrinking paychecks? Heck,
yeah, they're mad. They're working two or three jobs trying
to keep private health insurance on their own kids, and now
they're being told by patronizing politicians they're going to
have to work another one to pay for "free" insurance on the
non-working family next door, too.

Large sections of our population have apparently lost the in-
stinct to hunt. Even my bassett hound knows that dinner
tastes better if. you've worked for it yourself. She knows in
her bones that she wasn't bred to lay on the couch and have
her belly rubbed: she was bred to be a working dog, to be
productive, to contribute, and to earn her own keep. That's
a lesson many two-legged animals need to re-learn.

host of a talk radio show in
Atlanta, he cites his overrid-
ing principles for success as
"focus, focus, focus" and "ex-
ceed the expectations of the
job." By comparison, Presi-
dent Obama's life story is
not uninspiring, but his ad-
ministration's rhetoric
breeds a dependency far re-
moved from Herman Cain's
living testament to individ-
ual initiative and capitalism.

The title of a recent Town-
hall.com column reveals the
banal state of political dis-
course: "Criticizing Presi-
dent Obama is Not Racist."
Even if Obama, the most
lauded of modern presidents
was criticized because of
racism, his policies would
still merit public scrutiny.
His presidency, after all, is
not solely about him.. If his-
tory recalls that Obama ,led,
not by transforming Ameri-
ca, but by seeking to extend
the traditions of liberty to
all citizens, then he can tru-
ly be remembered as a post-
racial president.

'*- I have this bassett hound (well, mostly bas-
sett, I think her mama had a beagle in the genetic woodshed
somewhere) that I got from the Shively family almost a year
ago now. I've always loved bassetts. My daughter Casey had
one that I got from the Jacksonville pound named Sugar
who was probably one of the best dogs I've ever had. She
was so sweet, and so smart. I think she knew, somehow, that
I saved her hide that day I brought her home. She had al-
ready been adopted out, but her new owners brought her
back, saying she was "too hyper." She was on her last day
when I loaded her up to come to Dixie. She was never.hyper
for me, and she was one of those dogs that-you could say,
"Sugar, go watch the kids on the swing set," and she'd trot
over there and sit with them while they played, keeping an
eye out for snakes or wayward cats who might be getting too
cocky and who might need a good doggy talkin'-to. I still
miss that old dog.

Traod R iers

By Bonnie Wilson

I am so ready to start our
trail riding camping trips. I
can hardly wait. The weath-
er hopefully will soon be
getting to that perfectly
wonderful stage of cool
evenings, which will make
an awesome evening fire. I
know this is still August
and it's hard to imagine a
bon fire in this heat. Maybe
the heat is getting to me.

Dusty my blue-eyed wonder
horse is snorting and shak-
ing his head. He must think
I'm delusional today as I
talk to him about future
camping trips. If you
haven't joined us on our
camping trips, you're in for
a treat. Picture this; a won-
derful day of blue sky's,
beautiful wooded trails,
your best four-legged buddy
and a great group of two- *
legged buddies too! Throw
in some exploring of new
places to check out and this,
my friend, is an awesome
recipe for trail riding at it's
best.

Of course after the rides of
the day and the horses are
put to rest, our palate is sat-
isfied by great campfire
cooking, and then the
evening's entertainment be-


"Promoting Safety
Through Education"


From HAMOUD, pg 1
Hammoud was charged with
aggravated identity theft.,

Between July 21 and 22, 2008,
approximately $5.7 million in
state monies intended as
payments to Anderson Co-
lumbia were electronically
deposited into Regions Bank
accounts controlled by Ham-
moud. Within 48 hours of
these deposits, Hammoud
withdrew and attempted
to withdraw, via wire trans-
fers, checks, and other
means, approximately $3.9
million from the Regions
Bank accounts.

Hammoud was arrested on
July 24, 2008, while attempt-
ing to board a flight to
Beirut, Lebanon. On March
18, 2009, Hammoud pled
guilty to each of the five
counts of the indictment. At
a sentencing hearing today
Hammoud was sentenced to
85 months' imprisonment for
wire fraud, to be followed by
a consecutive sentence of 24
months' imprisonment for
aggravated identity theft.


gins. Of course it doesn't
hurt to have a nice cup of
Fay Beasley's magnificent
coffee to sip on during the
entertainment.

By entertainment, I mean
the Levy County Horse Club
has a talented group of
singers and guitar players.
Randy Beasley, Fred Fox
and Phil Parent are awe-
some entertainers. They
have on a number of camp-
ing trips treated us to a
wonderful evening of great
hits. Each one is unique in
his style. Some of us prefer
to go down on a Friday and
stay till Sunday

It's a wonderful weekend,
one that I always wish time
could be suspended to last a,
little longer. I never want to
leave. I know you'd feel the
same once you have joined
us for a memorable weekend
of trail riding.

Keep watching for our up-
coming details on our
Breast Cancer Awareness
Trail Ride the weekend of
October 24th. This will start
our camping season, howev-
er our trail rides will re-
sume in September.

In the immortal words of
Roy, Rogers "happy trails to
you, until we meet
again........"

Harvest of blue crabs from
traps will not be allowed
Aug. 20-29 in waters from
the Florida/Georgia border

All commercial and recre-
ational blue crab traps

of the Atlantic Ocean arid
inland waters must be re-
moved during the 10-day
closed period. Havest of
blue crabs by other gear,

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) cites lost
and abandoned traps as a
problem in the blue crab
fishery, because they can
continue to trap crabs and
fish when they are not
maintained. Also, they can
be unsightly in the marine
environment, damage sen-
sitive habitats and pose
navigational hazards to
boaters.

Lost and abandoned traps
cannot easily be distin-
guished from legal traps, so
they often remain in the
water indefinitely

Six regional, 10-day blue
crab trap closures take
place in Florida at different
times during the year.
More information regard-
ing .the FWC's trap-re-
trieval program; blue crab
trap closure dates, regula-
tions and how you can par-
ticipate in cleanup events

'DREGS/SaltwaterTraps_in
dex.htm. Interested per-
sons also can contact the-
FWC's trap retrieval coor-
dinator, Kyle Miller, at 850-

From BOYD, pg 1

Jackie Barron of Suwannee
said that "Seventy-five per-
cent of people are satisfied
(with their health coverage)
What we need to work on is
keeping this economy mov-
ing. This congress we've got
reminds me of a jackass
running in the Kentucky
Derby."

Rep. Boyd replied that "I'm
convinced that we've got to


fix health care be-
fore we can fix the

All of this, the bailouts, AIG,
the czars, all of it. Who do
the czars answer to?" Boyd
replied that there was never
a vote on AIG and that the
there were three branches of
government and listed them.
He then kicked that ball into
another court, saying that,
"I'm not a Constitutional
scholar. If something is un-
consititutional, then the
courts is where to resolve
that." ....

Dixie County Health Department
works with School District to
Implement Seasonal and HI N1
(Swine Flu) Guidelines

As the school year begins the
Dixie County Health Depart-
ment is working diligently
with the school system to
make sure students and par-
ents have the information
they need regarding Season-
al Flu and H1N1(Swine Flu).
The health department has
been working hard to pro-
vide administration, teach-
ers and students with the in-
formation that they need re-
garding the flu and how it
may affect our community
and our schools.

In the coming weeks it will
be important that parents
understand that the school
system and the health de-
partment will be depending
on them to ensure the health
of their children as well as
others. "We know that this
virus is in our state and our
community, and right now
our best defense against a flu
outbreak is prevention" said
Sable Boilling, Administrator
of the Dixie County Health
Department. As children re-
turn to the group setting it
will be very important that
people practice good hygiene
and stay home if they are
sick. This will include keep-
ing your children home from
school if they have flu symp-
toms.

Since last May the Health De-
partment has been in talks
with the school system about
H1Nl(Swine Flu) and how to
approach the new school
year. The latest information
has been provided to school
officials for posting to their
websites, and for print. The
health department is also

said that although we only
have 2% of the world's oil re-
serves, that we use 25% of
the oil and that until we
remedy that, we will be send-
ing large amounts of money
to "governments in the mid-
dle east who don't like us."
Mr. Petty said, "I don't like
them much, either."

Joe Sparacino commented
on Boyd's vote in favor of
the stimulus bill "after com-


ing down here
and telling us
you were against
it. Now we're
hearing I'm
against it, but
I'm scared to
death you're go-
ing back to vote


for it. I want my country
back! Are you going to vote
for this or not?" Boyd
replied, "No. If this bill
comes to the House floor,
no."

Helen Poore followed up,
pleading, "Can we have your
assurance that you will not
vote for this bill or anything
like it?" Rep. Boyd an-
swered, "You have my pledge
that I will not unless it
meets those four principles."

sending home information
this week on flu symptoms,
and what to do if your child
is sick.

People with flu-like symp-
toms, including fever, sore
throat or cough should con-
tact their health care
provider. Although the symp-
toms are similar for seasonal
flu and H1Nl(Swine flu)
some people have also report-
ed nausea, vomiting and di-
arrhea. The health depart-
ment will also be asking
teachers and administrators
to be on the lookout for sick
children so that they .can be
separated or distanced from
others. People with flu like
symptoms should remain at
home isolated from others
for a period of 24 hours be-
yond the last sign of fever.
Fever should be absent with-
out the use. of a fever reduc-
ing agent.

In the weeks to come the
health department will con-
tinue to monitor flu activity
in the county. At this point in
time because it is not the typ-
ical flu season if a person
has flu-like symptoms it can
be assumed that it is the
H1N1 strain of flu. Recom-.
mendations for treatment of
H1N1(Swine Flu) are the
same as seasonal flu. Some
individuals may benefit from
antiviral treatment but a pre-
scription must be obtained to
receive this medication. Most
individuals should recover
from this illness in the same
manner as the seasonal flu.
Parents or individuals with
questions regarding
H1Nl(Swine Flu) may call
the health department for in-
formation at 352-498-1360.
Additionally, information is
available on the web at

nit comb or your fingernails. Bright tight is
needed to see them clearly.
Put stuffed animals, dolls and small pillows In
a plastic bag for at least two days.
Soak all combs and brushes In HOT water for
at least 1( minutes.
Wash clothes worn in the last two days,
blankets, sheets, etc. In HOT water and dry
In a HOT dryer.
If you use lice shampoo or creme rinse, read
the label and follow directions carefully.
Vacuum all furniture and rugs. Avoid the use
of lice sprays.

Louse Tips
Remind children not to
share combs, brushes,
hats, etc., and not to
putl their heads together. iD I
Check the hair of all family members on a
regular basis. Make it part of your regular
routine, just like brushing teeth.
Braid or tie back long hair.
Watch for scratching.

What To
Look For
Lice are crawling em .eH ,w-


insects about
the size of a
sesame seed.
Nits (eggs) are greyish
white or bede in color
and are glued to the
hair. They are oval
shaped and are very
difficult to remove.

Think Smart...
...Heads Apart


Heads Up For New Ideas
The National Pediculosis Association markets
the LiceMeister comb. It works very well and
Is available at area pharmacies.
Hair Clean 1,2,3 Is a natural, safe product
with anise oil. You can buy it at some'health
food stores.
Soaking all the hair with mineral oil or a
mixture of half vinegar and half mineral oil will
suffocate the lice. Leave It on for six to eight
hours. Comb out the lice and nits, and
shampoo hair thoroughly.
"Not Nice to Lice" and other enzyme products
may help dissolve the nit casing and make
removal easier.
C 0heck your child's homework
Check your child's hair
Remember:
Schools don't get ioe, people do.

For More Help
Contact your School Nurame
or Clinic Assistant.
Ask your doctor, pharmacist,
or your local health department
office for Information.
The National Pediculoasis
Association has a lot of useful
Information about head lice.
Their website Is ww/.headllce.org.


Just the Facts
Most children who get head lice,
do not get them in school.
Lice prefer to stay in the hair,
not the environment.
Lice do not cause disease.
Uce cannot stay alive in schools and on school
buses on the weekends, because they cannot
live without human contact for more than
48 hours.
' Researchers have been unable to hatch
lice eggs off the head, even in ideal
laboratory conditions.
Kids might gel head lice at sleepovers, while
at group or dub activities, family gatherings,
babysitting, playing sports, watching TV or
playing video games together.
Head lice can spread if
two heads are together.
Lice cannot jump.
They have no hind legal
Lice do not have wings and cannot fly.
According to national research, the reason lice
seem more prevalent after school breaks is
because lice are a community problem, and
children have more close contact with each
other during breaks.
The color of the louse depends on when it had
its iast blood meal.
Pets do not get head lice.
Head lice can happen to anyone.

Thursday August 20, 2009


Stuff to


Do


Festival
Entertainment
Announced

The Dixie County Cham-
ber of Commerce has an-
nounced the entertainment
lineup for
the Dixie
Days Fes-

sched-
uled for
Saturday
Septem-
ber 26th. , .
The all-
day, free
event will
be held at
the Trail- '
riders
Complex :
on Air-
port Rd. - -
in Cross oti
City. ------
Head-
lining the show will be the
band Steel Bridge from
Cross City This relatively
new quintet plays a hard-
driving mix of contempo-
rary, as well as classic, rock
and roll with a very strong
southern flavor. Steel Bridge
has performed at the Spirit
of the Suwannee Music
Park and is drawing very
good crowds at nightclubs
and sports bars from
Gainesville to Lake City to
Steinhatchee. Further infor-
mation and a sampling of
their music can be found at
www.myspace.com/steel-
bridgeband.
Dotti South and her band
the Slackers will be per-
forming selections from her
upcoming second album,
along with some of the
band's favorite cover tunes.
Dotti's release is expected to
feature all original material,
as did her first album. The
band was one of the feature
acts at the inaugural Hud-
son Americana Music Festi-
val this past Fourth of July
in Pasco County. Several of
Dotti's songs reflect on the
beauty of Florida and re-
ceive airplay on WMNF's


tional, high-energy tunes
sure to get your toes a-tap-
pin'. But they also shine on
the slow ballads that could
bring a tear to your eye. Un-
der the direction of vocalist-
guitarist Randy Slaughter,
this talented group has done
benefits, shows, and festi-
vals throughout the area for


several years and is very
well received wherever they
play. Fortunately, for Blue-
grass lovers, they perform is
this area quite frequently.
Making her return per--
formance for a Dixie Cham-
ber event on stage will be
Jordan Bush. Her first was
at the latest Red Belly Day.
Hailing from the Callahan
area, near Jacksonville, Jor-
dan has considerable rela-
tions in the Dixie area. Her
melodious voice, coupled
with a dynamic delivery, has
impressed audiences at ma-
jor festivals throughout all
of north Florida - from the
Atlantic to the Gulf of Mex-
ico. I
Where every one of these
talented groups has per-
formed at least once each
for the Dixie County Cham-
ber of Commerce at the
Chamber's previous Red
Belly Day Festivals, they are
to be whole-heartedly ap-
plauded and thanked for
generously donating their
time, trouble, and talents by
performing for this event
with absolutely no charge to
the Chamber! Bravo! With
this being a free event,

radio program The Florida
Folk Show. True to their
name, the Slackers are cur-
rently without a website.
If the 2 - Lane Highway
Band looks familiar, it is be-
cause they were formerly
the Underdawgs Band. Most
members are the same, ex-
cepting the substitution of
Roger Bayles on bass. This
group has been working the
area clubs in north central
Florida for several years
and enjoys the reputation of
being a good-time, party
band. They play a very nice
mix of contemporary and
classic popular songs from a
variety of musical stylings.
Check out their site at
http://2-lanehighwaycom.
One of the area's favorite
Southern Gospel groups,
Southland, will be making
an appearance at this festi-
val. This multiple award-
winning quartet puts on an
inspiringly energetic per-
formance at every one of
their shows. It is easy to
hear why they have won so
many awards! Since the
group last performed for the
Dixie County Chamber, bass
singer Bert Buzbee's retire-
ment brought in Andy
Haynes, a veteran of the
Gospel Radio industry.
Big Cypress Bluegrass
will be performing tradi-


meaning no gate receipts,
the Chamber had. no budget
with which to purchase tal-
ent for this event. So thank
you, artists all!
Watch this fine paper for
further information on each
of these groups, and the lat-
est developments on this
growing, family-oriented
festival, which now coin-
cides with the Dixie County
Rotary's annual gun show -
again held in the Trailrid-
ers Club building. Many
other events are scheduled.
The festival is a Saturday-
only event, while the gun
show will be held Saturday

First Baptist of

Steinhatchee News

A special thank you to Bob
Puckett for doing our
church news last week! We
appreciate you! Continue to
pray for Bob as he is endur-
ing some more health prob-
lems! GOD has work for all
.HIS children, regardless of
age or ability! There are so
many avenues to serve
GOD! But are we faithful?

We are in'the late summer
months and we are still see-
ing these little lightning
bugs or fireflies as some
people say. They come with
their bright little lights on
and shinning, but when you
look up their lights are gone
and you can't see them any-
more. Then all of a sudden
you look up and there they
are again, letting their
lights shine...oh so beautiful
for all of us to see. Are we
that kind of Christian? Do
we live for the LORD to-
day..letting our lights shine
for GOD'S service and all
the world to see? Putting
down our earthly sins and
doing what is right! Then
poof; our light disappears
and we go back to living for
the devil!

Are we like those tiny light-
ning bugs: Are we on again,
when we are in need
then...off again.when our
lives are good? Or maybe we
become lukewarm Chris-
tians, not really on fire for
JESUS, but just going along
half way! Still going, but
just barely Maybe like that
little firefly....on sometime
then it's gone!

We have to become a faith-
ful Christian, working year
after year, doing GOD'S
work. Everyone has some-
thing in their lives that pre-
vents them from growing
closer to THE LORD! What
is yours? It's not "all about
us", it is all about CHRIST!
Have we given up our world-
ly sins... 100 per cent? Or


lilies"


"are we trying to live in both
worlds. Come on try JESUS,
if you don't like HIIM...the
devil will always take you
back!

Our Stewardship Confer-
ence with Bro. Max-Alder-
man will begin August 23rd-.
27th. beginning at 7:00 each
evening.! The monthly
Men's Meeting will be on
August 30th! If you would
like to work or help in the
Wednesday night Awanna
Program, please attend the
meeting on Aug. 23 rd.!
JUST A THOUGHT: We are
serving GOD, as we teach
our children about HIS love
and grace! Thank you to
Harry Gatlin for two spe-
cials on Sunday! He played
his guitar and sang for
GOD'S glory: "Eternity Has
Begun" and "Death Ain't No
Big Deal."

May your day be blessed
and until we meet again in
the papers, may GOD, cradle
you in the palm of HIS lov-
ing hand!
Sandy Coleman


On Wednesday night the
young children are partici-
pating in "Missions for Kids"
and learning about Jesus
and how to contact others.,
Bring your little ones out at
6:30 and let them be a part of
this new program.

There will be a special social,
after church next Sunday
night and we invite you to
come to church and check
this out. We plan.to do this
every 4th Sunday of each
month. Come to church and
see what's going on Click
Me!. We feel sure you'll be
glad you did. Remember the
community sing at New
Prospect next Saturday
night at 6:00 PM. Anyone
can sing and all you need to
do is show up.

Don't forget this coming
week to pray for the less for-
tunate, the sick, the be-
reaved, the 6nes in the hos-
pitals and the ones going for
surgery God hears and an-
swers our prayers. Invite
someone to come to Sunday
School and Church with you
next week and let's see who
all may be saved because of
our invitation. How God
will bless us for that. Until
next week, we love you and
are praying for you.


Protect youri children
by standing up for parenthood!
Parents have the high privilege and solemn duty to raise their children to know and love
God. While all parents desire that their grown children embrace their faith freely and
enthusiastically, when children are young, it falls to parents to make decisions regarding
their children's religious upbringing, including:
t How often does your family attend your place of worship?
S What congregation have you chosen to attend?
t+ Can you teach your children that your religious views are absolutely true?
However, your freedom to determine the answers to these three questions will be
undermined if the United States Senate ratifies the UN Convention on the Rights of the
Child. For example:
t A Washington state court ruled that parents could not require their 13-year-
old son to attend church with them on Sunday morning, Sunday night, and
Wednesday night. The judge said that unless the family limited the boy's
- church attendance to Sunday morning, he would remove custody. This
Washington law (which has since changed) paralleled the UN children's
treaty.
t The Scottish government, in an official publication produced to help their
youth understand their rights under the UN treaty, says; "You have the right
to choose your own religion and beliefs." The role of parents? They "help, you
think about this."
t The American Bar Association, a strong supporter of the UN Convention on
the Rights of the Child, acknowledges that religious schools that teach that
Jesus is the only way to Cod "fly in the face" of the treaty. Thus, any who teach
children that their religion is the truth arc likewise in violation.
Under Article VI of the U.S. Constitution, all ratified treaties are superior to state
constitutions, and laws. Hence, this treaty will override virtually all current American
laws on parents and children that conflict with it.

What do I believe?
As an American I believe
in generosity, in liberty, in
the rights of man.
These are social and
political faiths that are
part of me, as they are,
I suppose, part of all of us.
Such beliefs are easy to
express. But part of me
too is my relation to all
life, my religion.
And this is not so easy
to talk about.
Religious experience is
highly intimate and, for
me, ready words are not
at hand.

A THREAT AGAINST PARENTHOOD:
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN CRC)
The Structure:
1. The CRC is a treaty that creates binding rules of law. It is no mere statement of
altruism.
2. This treaty would automatically override almost all family law in America due to
Article VI of the United States Constitution.
3. Congress would have the power to directly legislate on all subjects necessary to
comply with the treaty. This would constitute the most massive shift of power from
the states to the federal government in American history.
4. American courts would have the power to directly enforce the self-executing
provisions uf the treaty.
5. A commillce of It experts from other nations, sitting In Geneva, has the authority
to issue official interpretations of the treaty which would be entitled to binding
weight in American courts and legislatures. This would effectively transfer ultimate
authority for all policies in this area to this foreign committee.
The Substance:
1. Parents would no longer be able to administer reasonable spankings to their
children.
2. Children would have the ability to choose their own religion while parents would
S only have the authority to give their children -advice about religion.
3. The best interest of the child principle would give the government the ability to
override every decision made by every parent if a government worker disagreed
with the parent's decision.
4. Children would have the right to reproductive health information and services,
including abortions, without parental knowledge or consent.
5. Religious schools that refuse to teach "alternative worldviews" and teach that theirs
is the only true religion "fly in the face of article 29" of the treaty, says the American
Bar Association.
THE SOLUTION:
THE PARENTAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT
SECTION 1
The liberty of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children is a
fundamental right.
SECTION 2
- Neither the United States nor any State shall infringe upon this right without
demonstrating that its governmental interest as applied to the person is of the highest
order and not otherwise served.
SECTION 3
No treaty may lie adopted nor shall any source of international law be employed to
supi'rsrtis, modify, interpret, or apply to the rights guaranteed by this article.

Fish kills common during

summer, but need reporting

The recent rains and cloudy skies are causing problems
along the Withlacoochee River and in lakes around Citrus
and Sumter counties.

Residents are reporting fish kills in various areas, and
fisheries biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) think the number and sever-
ity of fish kills could increase over the next several weeks.

"We've already had reports of fish kills in the Inverness
and Floral City areas as well as various locations on the
Withlacoochee River. These kills are a result of low dis-
solved oxygen (DO) levels," said Allen Martin, regional
fisheries biologist for the FWC's Division of Freshwater
Fisheries Management in Lake City "And it could get
worse in the coming weeks if we get tropical storm or hur-
ricane activity"

What do heavy rains and cloudy skies have to do with fish
suffocating from a lack of oxygen?

Ben West's daughter Dana was on her way to with her new
husband Suwannee Saturday night and caught a glimpse
of this in Old Town. Goodness only knows what the poor
man thinks about Dixie now.:)

It was soon to be 94 degrees

the kids of Dixie County

too.

Ironically, a lack of sunshine in the Sunshine State her-
alds the beginning of problems. The process starts with
overcast skies, hot summer days and rainy weather.


Photosynthesis creates most of the oxygen that fish
breathe. The process allows waterborne microscopic
plants to use sunlight to produce and add dissolved oxygen
to the water. However, when overcast skies persist for sev-
eral days, there is often not enough sunlight to power the
oxygen-making process that supports fish life.


Heavy rain and wind from thunderstorms add to the prob-
lem by stirring up bottom sediments that mix with good-
quality water near the surface, compounding the problem.
Rainwater runoff can also wash large amounts of decay-
ing plant and animal material into the water body. In the
decay process, bacteria use dissolved oxygen in the water
to break down plant and animal matter, further lowering
oxygen levels.


"We are seeing this occur in the Green Swamp area," Mar-
tin said. "The rains are releasing a pulse of poor-quality
(low DO) water into the Withlacoochee River that is then
flowing into the Tsala Apopka chain of lakes."


Fish can often be seen coming to the surface of the water
and gulping air. Ultimately, the fish die and float to the sur-
face.


"The size of the fish kills depends on how .low the oxygen
levels are. They can range from only a few individuals be-
ing affected to massive kills, where thousands of fish die."
