Schrider soon to
face trial in NJ

According to the Newark
Advocate, Trevor J.
Schrider, 32, is facing trial
for the attempted murder
of a New Jersey man by
pouring rubbing alcohol
on him and setting him on
fire. He was arrested, and
- posted bond, and then fled
to Dixie County where he
was arrested a few months
later for beating a man to
death.

Schrider pled guilty and
was sentenced to 15 years
in prison. Florida re-
turned him to New Jersey
to face attempted murder
charges for the fire inci-
dent.

He is being held at the
LIcking County Justice
Center on a million dollar
bond and his trial is set
for September 29th.

Chairman Marvin Hunt and
the County Commission
held their own against what
seemed to be an entire Old
Town neighborhood, who
showed up to protest the re-
zoning of 31 acres on CR 349
for an R.V. Park.

County Manager Mike Cas-
sidy told the crowd that
"Numbers (of protesters)
are irrelevant" and that the
county has a legal proce-
dure it is required to follow.
Old Town resident Anette
Ward spoke against the
"Lucky Charm RV Park,"
citing her environmental
concerns about the "red
cockaded woodpecker and
wood stork and other
species of concern" that
might be found on the prop-
erty, water supplies and
drainage, and asked that the
county require an 8 foot pri-
vacy fence and 6' trees to be
added to the plans.

Building and Zoning officer
Jon Jenkins explained to
the Commission that the
proposed site plan on the
property was only using
half of the density that it
could have been approved
for.

Several members of the
crowd stood up and made
angry speeches obliquely
threatening to vote against

asked everyone who came to
protest the RV park to stand
up. The majority of the au-
dience stood. He then said,
"If you've moved here in the

They all sat down.

Fatality on US 19


A man died when his trac-
tor trailer, hauling produce,
left its lane and struck the.
guardrail on US 19 just
north of the Cypress Inn on
Sunday evening.

The truck plowed through
the guard rail and into the
trees, where the trailer was


split by a pine tree and the
truck and the produce it
was carrying was over-
turned.

The man was Johnnie
Lewellen from Zephyrhills,
.34 years old. He was not
wearing a seat belt.


Dixie's Unemployment


rate jumps again in July

in cooperation with the US. Department of Labor, Breau of Labor Statstics.


Dixie County's unemploy-
mentrate jumped 0.4 per-
cent in the just the last
month, to 12.1 percent. The
number of unemployed peo-
ple listed went from 652 to
671. That's up 4.1 percent
from the same time last
year. Florida's seasonally
adjusted unemployment
rate didn't increase, and-
was the same as June's at
10.7 percent.

On a ranking of the coun-
ties with the worst unem-
ployment figures in the
state, Dixie came in six-
teenth, just under Levy
County at fifteenth.
Gilchrist, Levy, and Taylor
Counties all saw similar
jumps in job losses during
July.

The counties with the high-
est rates of jobless people
were Hendry, Flagler, and
Indian River. Liberty, Wal-
ton and Monroe had the low-


est rates, primarily due to
large sectors of government
employees.

An Old Town resident who
didn't wish to be named said
that her husband with an
MBA has been out of: work
since April, and has "gotten
to the point where he'll take
anything." (If you know
anybody looking to hire an
MBA, please call the Advo-
cate, please.)

At the County Commission-
er's meeting on Thursday
evening, Chairman Marvin'
Hunt commented that the
employment situation is be-
coming very serious
throughout the area. In an
application process for hir-
ing an engineer, he said that
ten applicants applied
where in normal times they
would have only received
two or three.


The First Day of School


Sporting backbacks bigger
than themselves, a new
batch of Dixie County
kindergartners started back
to school on Monday morn-
ing.


Parking was a little crazy,
but most managed to get to
school on time.

Now that school's back in,
be sure to drive carefully
and stop for all school
buses and crosswalks.

Viewpoints


Scots coddle Islamic terrorist


On December 21, 1988, a Boeing 747 was destroyed in mid-
air by a bomb planted by a group of Islamic terrorists
while in the proximity of Lockerbie, Scotland. Only one of
the culprits was apprehended and brought to trial. His
name is Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi.

This scumbag was tried and convicted in an international
court and sentenced to serve a life (or 27 years, depending
on which account you prefer) prison term in Scotland. It
was an outrageously lenient sentence, considering the mtali-'
cious nature of the act and the fact that his victirns ntun
bered 270, including 189 Americans and 11 Lockerbie resi-
dents killed by falling fragments of the aircraft.

Even more outrageous is the fact that last week, the govern-
ment of Scotland freed this piece of human garbage, and
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown appears to have had
a hand in this as well. Not only that, they arranged for him
to be flown back to his native Libya, where he reportedly re-
ceived a hero's welcome when the plane landed in Tripoli.

Al Megrahi had served only 9 years of his sentence; howev-
er, at 57 he was given only a few months to live, owing to
prostate cancer. The Scottish government felt it would be
"compassionate" to allow him to return home to his wife
and family to live out his last days.

Doesn't that just bring a tear to your eye? This urohy-
menopteron who didn't even have the testicular fortitude to
be a suicide bomber is deserving of compassion? There are
people doing more than 9 years in prison here and else-
where who never killed anybody What next? Will this car-


buncle on the gluteal extremity of
the human species be flown to
America in hopes of finding sur-
geons who can prolong his worth-
less life?

Since we do not use inhumane
methods when dealing with crim-
inals (despite what some of our
politicians would have us be-
lieve), I would have considered it
appropriate if Abdelbaset Ali
Mohmed Al Megrahi had twisted
in the wind at the end of a rope,


"Towering in gallant fame,
Scotland my mountain hame,
High may your proud
standards gloriously wave,.,
Brave are the hearts that beal
beneath Scottish skies...."
"Scotland the Brave'

"Yeah, maybe not so much'
--Editoi


as did so many of his ancestors when-Western civilization
put the Barbary pirates out of business. (Note: We need to
do it again. More about that another time.) However if we
have it in mind to be sympathetic, there are 270 of his vic-
tims and countless more of their family and friends to be
considered before we start feeling sorry for this refugee
from a barf bag.

Incidentally, Al Megrahi says he didn't do it. Right, and nei-
ther did 0. J. But he got what the press coverage describes
as a "hero's welcome" when he touched down in Tripoli.
Now, what were they celebrating, if not the fact that an Is-
lamic terrorist had beat the system? As for Tripoli, it seems
to me the Marines are still singing their song about how
they kicked butt there awhile back. Maybe they need to do
it again.

Now, I've heard people sounding off about how we ought to
boycott Scottish products. The only thing I can think of
that they export is Scots whiskey, and I certainly wouldn't
have any problem boycotting that. Even if I liked whiskey, I
wouldn't like Scotch. (Yes, I tried it. Tried broccoli, too. And
liver.)

If we need to boycott something, we need to boycott Islam.
No, I'm not suggesting we set aside the First Amendment
concept of religious freedom, our government has already
done that. I mean we need to quit accommodating the de-
mands of people who consider us infidels and tell them, ei-
ther adjust to us or get your camel-riding saddle sores back
to the sand dunes whence you came.

And by the way, the Scots and the Brits might need to be
thinking about doing the same.

I had sort of promised myself that I'd give
you a week free of my political ramblings. I
know most people aren't as interested in poli-
tics as I am, and I'm sure you'd rather hear
about something more cheerful than my doom
and gloom ranting about the downfall of American society
(Look at the bright side, you're not having to listen to me in
person. I'm OK on paper, but I stink in real life. Note to self:
No matter the provocation, keep your mouth shut in County
Commission meetings...you sound like an idiot.)

I'm sorry, I really am. I just can't. I have to tell you about
this, because it's ridiculous. I can't decide if I'm raging mad,
or if I'm scared to death. I thinkit's a little of both. At any
rate, I need to get it off my chest, and you need to know
about it if you don't already, so here goes.

There's this lady named Suzi Lang. She likes to sew and she
makes these little cloth teething giraffes in
her spare time and sells them on the internet Give me col
at starbrightbabyonline.com. They're really economic ai
cute, in bright colors, and they look fairly
easy to make. She says that they're all cotton over his n
and they're stuffed with some sort of corn and
product that is totally safe. They don't have occasional he
little plastic eyes or anything like that, to deliv
they're pretty basic. They look like any of to deliv
the other thousands of hand-made things you think and
can buy on internet places like Etsy.com by a
people trying to bring in a few dollars on the
side. (If you've never been there, go look! It's
amazing! I bought Paige Corbin the prettiest
baby blanket you've ever seen, custom-made
in her colors.) Anyway this lady isn't Mattel or Fisher
Price. She's working out of her house, she's small-time, and
she makes her little giraffes in small batches of 10 to 12.

Enter the government. In it's infinite nanny-state wisdom
about what is good for us, they've passed this law called the
Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, or CPSIA for
short. The government has informed Ms. Lang and others
like her that they have to test each batch of toys that they
make for lead and for some sort of plastic called "Phtha-
lates." To test each little batch of 10-12 cotton giraffes will
cost Ms. Lang $800-$1200. I doubt that you could afford to
buy one for that baby shower at whatever it would cost her
to make a profit after that.

I tried to see the sense in it, I did. I remember when Mattel
bought all of those lead-paint toys in from China. I can see
how imported toys should be tested. I can see, even, how
major manufacturers would have to test each batch of their
products for safety. Only, the thing is, the government lets
the big guys police themselves. They aren't subject to the
same ridiculous rules that little Ms. Lang is. It's like the law
was expressly written to drive small-time operators com-
pletely out of business on purpose.

Ms. Lang told.the website Hot Air that "...the law also depu-
tizes every single state Attorney General to go after offend-


new provision that makes it a crime to re-
sell anything that's been recalled by its
manufacturer. " This law even applies to
books in stores and libraries that were
printed before 1985, just in case some kid is
dumb enough to lick all of the ink off the
pages. (OK, it may be just me, but if your
kid is licking the ink out of old books a lit-
tle harmless lead poisoning is the least of
your Worries.) Books from 1984 and back
are outlawed by CPSIA. Hm. Something a
bit... Orwellian about that, you think?

They're sending out thousands of enforce-


ment agents to raid garage sales, church
bazaars, Ebay sales, Craigslist classified and Salvation
Army thrift stores in pursuit of "dangerous and defective
products." If you're caught selling a crib, car seat, or little
stuffed teddy bear that was recalled ten years ago, you
wouldn't just have to give the money back, you could be
found guilty of a crime.

A crime.

Going after little old ladies (or not-old ladies like me!) who
knit little hats for the babies in the intensive care units?
Going after the pastor at the church rummage sale for sell-
ing an old recalled record player? Locking up that guy. who
runs the humane society yard sale because he sold a re-
called barbie doll? Going after somebody who sells an an-
tique Lionel train set on Ebay? Have we lost our minds com-
pletely to put up with this (in the words of our sophisticat-
ed, well-spoken President) "wee wee?" Are there no terror-
ists or child molesters for them to chase?

Apparently, this new hopey-changey government of the
United States thinks that the American people are too stu-
pid to buy old Legos at a Saturday garage sale without hold-
ing the hand of a federal agent. If we sit idly by and allow
this to happen; if we act like the shpeple that they think we
are; if we meekly roll over and give up our hard-won liberty
to such outrageous laws, then maybe they're right.

Don't know about the 9/12
project? What's it all about?



T e 9/12


The 9 Principles

1. America Is Good.

2. I believe in God and
He is the Center of my Life.
God "The propitious
smiles of Heaven can never
be expected on a nation that
disregards the eternal rules
of order and right which
Heaven itself has ordained."


from George Washington's
first Inaugural address.

3. I must always try to
be a more honest person
than I was yesterday
Honesty "I hope that
I shall always possess firm-
ness and virtue enough to
maintain what I consider to
be the most enviable of all
titles, the character of, an


honest man." George Wash-
ington

4. The family is sa-
cred. My spouse and I are
the ultimate authority, not
the government.
Marriage/Family
"It is in the love of one's
family only that heartfelt
happiness is known. By a
law of our nature, we cannot
be happy without the en-
dearing connections of a
family" Thomas Jefferson

5. If you break the law
you pay the penalty. Justice


is blind and no one is above
it. . '
Justice "I deem one
of the essential principles of
our government... equal and
exact justice to all men of
whatever state or persua-
sion, religious or political."
Thomas Jefferson

6. I have a right to life,
liberty and pursuit of happi-


ness, but there is no guaran-
tee of equal results.
Life, Liberty, & The
Pursuit of Happiness
"Everyone has a natural
right to choose that vrocation
in life which he thinks most
likely to give him comfort-
able subsistence." Thomas
Jefferson

7. I work hard for what
I have and I will share it
with who I want to. Govern-
ment cannot force me to be
charitable.
Charity "It is not
everyone who asketh that


deserveth charity; all howev-
er, are worth of the inquiry
or the deserving may suffer."
George Washington


8. It is not un-Ameri-
can for me to disagree with
authority or to share my
personal opinion.
On your right to dis-
agree "In a free and republi-
can government, you cannot
restrain the voice of the
multitude; every man will
speak as he thinks, or more
properly without thinking."
George Washington

9. . The government
works for me. I do not an-
swer to them, they answer
to me.
Who works for
whom? "I consider the peo-
ple who constitute a, society
or a nation as the source of
all authority in that na-
tion." Thomas Jefferson

The search for a Crystal
River man, missing since
Tuesday, ended Wednesday
afternoon when Florida

tion Commission (FWC) offi-
cers located his body

Theodore R. Edwards III, 49,
left the Highway 40 boat

Withlacoochee River to go
fishing Tuesday at 7:30 a.m.
He was operating a 1996 17-
foot Polar aluminum vessel
and was scheduled to return

bara L. Wollard, returned to
the boat ramp at the ap-
pointed time to pick him up.
When he did not return,
Wollard called the Coast
Guard for help. FWC offi-
cers located Edwards' body
in the Gulf of Mexico about
11 V2 miles west-northwest of
Chamber Island at the
mouth of the Withlacoochee
River. Edwards' boat has not

LEVY COUNTY

Officers Robert Johnston
and Garret Fields were on
patrol targeting illegal night
hunting when they located a
truck slowly traveling down
the road working a spot-
light.

The officers stopped the ve-
hicle and found the occu-
pants in possession of a .22
caliber rifle. The men ad-
mitted that they were look-
ing for something to kill.
The officers issued citations
for attempting to take
wildlife at night with a gun
and light.

Officer Sam Dishman was
on patrol when he located a
truck that had just left a lo-
cal hunt club heading to-
wards him. As the vehicle
passed by, it veered into Of-
ficer Dishman's lane caus-
ing him to retreat to the
ditch.

The officer caught up to the
vehicle and got the driver to
stop. Upon approaching the
driver, it was immediately
apparent that the operator
was impaired, and the sub-
ject openly admitted that he
had been drinking and
smoking marijuana at his
hunt camp most of the day

He then produced a bag of
marijuana to Officer Dish-,
man. The subject was ad-
ministered the field sobriety
tasks in which he per-
formed poorly. He was
booked into the Levy Coun-
ty Jail for DUI and posses-
sion of marijuana.


Both Royal and
Hodge are currently in cus-
tody in the Dixie County
Jail pending first appear-
ance before the court.

George J. Byrd, 37yoa,
Cross City, he was arrested
on the afternoon of August
24, 2009. Byrd was arrested

Controlled Substance along
with other outstanding war-
rants for unrelated charges.

These arrests are a continu-
ation of the Sheriff's Of-
fice's investigation into the
illegal sale of pharmaceuti-
cals. Several more arrests
are expected as Sheriff's in-
vestigators continue their
investigation into these
sales.


"Deer hunters want to hunt
.during the rut, and we want
to be able to share compre-
hensive information about
when the rut occurs with
the hunting public," FWC
biologist and deer team co-
ordinator Cory Morea said.
"We realize a lot of hunters
.know when the rut happens
in their area, and we want
to take this information and
compare it with our concep-
tion data to see if they are
-similar. It would be great to
be able to use any new data
to help fill in the holes in
what we already know." :

FWC seeks hunters to
complete deer rut survey

The Florida Fish and,
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) wants to -
hear from hunters around
the state regarding "when"
they think the white-tailed
deer rut happens in their
neck of the woods.

The FWC, along with its
deer management stake-
holder group, is considering
making possible changes to-
Florida's deer hunting
zones and corresponding
season dates. The first goal
of the "Strategic Plan for
Deer Management in Flori-
da 2008-2018" is to manage
deer at a more local level
and better align hunting
season dates with peak rut-
ting (breeding) activity.

Winkler attended a privately

COMPREHENSIVE

ROADSIDE SOBRIETY

CHECKPOINT TO BE

CONDUCTED


Lake City: The Florida
Highway Patrol will be con-
ducting a Comprehensive
Roadside Sobriety
Checkpoint (CRSC) within
the Lake City District, on
Friday, August 28, 2009'
starting at 10:00 p.m. This
multi-agency checkpoint
will be conducted in Suwan-
nee County on State Road
51, north of the City of
Live Oak.

This is a continuing en-
forcement program to iden-
tify persons who are operat-
ing a motor vehicle
with defective equipment,
without a valid driver's li-
cense, without a proper ve-
hicle registration, proper
insurance or while under


the influence of alcohol or
other drugs.


The objectives of these
checkpoints are:

1. Deter vehicles from being
operated on the highways
with defective
equipment.

2. Deter drivers from oper-
ating vehicles without a
valid driver's license.

3. Deter drivers from oper-
ating vehicles without prop-
er insurance and/or
proper registration.

4. Deter impaired driving
and thereby reducing death,
injury and property dam-
age caused by
alcohol and drug impaired
drivers.

5. Detect impaired drivers
before a crash occurs.

No evidence of

chronic wasting

disease found in

Florida white-tailed
deer

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife,Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) has not
found any evidence of
chronic wasting disease
(CWD) after extensive test-
ing of the state's white-
tailed deer population.

The FWC tested 582 free-
ranging deer during the
past year and more than
4,000 deer during the past
seven years, with no CWD-


positive results.

"While we can
never say that
Florida is en-
tirely free of
the disease
without test-
ing every deer,
this sample
size gives us
confidence
that if CWD is
present in
Florida, it is


P.O. Box 1319
91 S.W. 12th Street
Cross City, FL 32628


Chronic wasting disease has
been detected in New Mexi-
co, Utah, Colorado,
Wyoming, Kansas, Minneso-
ta, Oklahoma, Montana,
South Dakota, Nebraska,
Wisconsin, Illinois, New
York, West Virginia, Michi-
gan and Alberta and
Saskatchewan, Canada. Vis-
it the CWD Alliance Web
site at www.cwd-info.org for
the most up-to-date CWD re-
porting.

"Early detection is the key
to limiting the spread of the
disease, if such an outbreak
should occur in Florida,"
Cunningham said.

Once again, this hunting
season, the FWC is turning
to hunters and members of
the public for assistance in
helping monitor the state's


~B B~P~urll~C'"' 'K


at low levels," Dr. Mark Cun-
ningham, FWC's wildlife
veterinarian, said. "Howev-
er, even low numbers of
CWD-positive deer would be
cause for concern, so we
plan to continue testing for
the foreseeable future."

CWD is a contagious neuro-
logical disease that has been
found in captive and wild
mule deer, white-tailed deer,
moose and Rocky Mountain
elk within several midwest-
ern and western states. The
disease causes degeneration
of the brains of infected an-
imals, resulting in emacia-
tion, abnormal behavior,
loss of bodily functions and
death...

Thus far, no southeastern
state, including Florida, has
been hit by the deer disease.

To reduce the chances of
CWD entering Florida, the
state prohibits importing
live deer unless they come
from a herd that has been
certified CWD-free for five
or more years and carcasses
of any species of deer, elk
or moose from 15 states and
two Canadian provinces
where CWD has been detect-


deer herd for
CWD.


"We're asking
hunters to re-
. . port any
-. sightings of
' sick or ema-
ciated deer,
or deer dead
of unknown
causes," Cun-
ningham


said. "If you see such a
deer, call toll-free 866-CWD-
WATCH (293-9282). Please
do not handle the deer.
Wildlife biologists will re-
spond, and if necessary, col-
lect deer tissue for testing.
It's important to contact us
as soon as possible, because
sample collection must take
place within 48 hours of a
deer's death to yield reliable
results."

CWD WATCH is part of an
aggressive monitoring pro-
gram to ensure CWD is not
already in Florida and the
disease does not spread into
this state.

There is no evidence that
CWD poses a risk for hu-
mans, however, public
health officials recommend
avoiding direct contact with
any sick-looking deer or one
that has died from unknown
causes.

More information about
CWD surveillance in Flori-
da is available at
MyFWC.com/CWD. The
Web site also offers links to
wildlife and health agencies
with more in-depth informa-
tion about the disease.

CROSS CITY - The Florida
Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles
wants to advise the public
of upcoming changes to
your local driver license of-
fice. The office co-located
with the Florida Highway
Patrol station at 16102 SE
Highway 19, Cross City, FL
32628-5700, will close its
doors as a state-operated of-
fice at 5 p.m. on Aug. 24,
2009. Residents will still be
able to access driver license
services at the same loca-
tion though, because the of-
fice will reopen as an agent
for the Dixie County Tax
Collector, who will begin to
offer driver license services
when the office reopens
Aug. 27.

"By adding the driver li-
cense services to the tax col-
lector's office and our ser-
vices, we can provide a con-
venience to customers so
they do not have to drive to
the next county," said Dixie
County Tax Collector
Michelle F. Cannon.

The closest state-operated
driver license office is locat-
ed at 5830 Northwest 34th
Street in Gainesville, Fla.
DHSMV staff there are
pleased to serve all cus-
tomers.

During the transition on
Aug. 25-26, the Department
will send a Florida Licens-
ing On Wheels mobile unit
to provide services to cus-
tomers. FLOW mobiles are
equipped with the technolo-
gy and ability to bring valu-
able motorist services di-
rectly to customers. They
provide a convenient
method to renew a driver li-
cense, obtain a duplicate
driver license, change a'


Tax Collector Michelle Cannon


name or address on a driver
license, get an identification
card, register a vehicle and
purchase a specialty license
plate.

"The Department encour-
ages customers to skip the
trip and conduct their dri-
ver license business online
at www.flhsmv.gov, where
they can access various on-
line services. Customers can
renew their 'driver licenses,
identification cards and ve-
hicle tags, as well as change
their address all from the
comfort of their home or of-
fice. There are no sur-
charges for using the Inter--
net," said the Division of
Driver Licenses Director
Sandra Lambert. "If a cus-
tomer has received notifica-
tion from the Department
that they will have to come
into an office, they can
make an appointment at
www.flhsmv.gov/oasis,
which is an excellent time
saving tool."

The Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles provides highway
safety and security through
excellence in service, educa-
tion and enforcement. The
Department is leading the
way to a safer Florida
through the efficient and
professional execution of its
core mission: the issuance
of driver licenses, vehicle
tags and titles and operation
of the Florida Highway Pa-
trol. To learn more about
DHSMV and the services of-
fered, visit www.flhsmv.gov.

STRAIGHT TALK
By Dixie District School Su-
perintendent - Mark Rains

Welcome to the 2009-2010
school year. We have com-
pleted the first few days of
school and everyone is very
busy! We believe this will
be a successful year for our
students and together we
can have a huge impact on
the lives of our young peo-
ple.

The Dixie District Schools
Back To School Guide is
available at local businesses
and all schools. These
Guides contain valuable in-
formation that will be useful
throughout the school year.

The safety and security of
our students is my top prior-
ity. State grants were re-
ceived and new camera sys-
tems have been installed at
Old Town Elementary
School and Ruth Rains Mid-
dle School. Camera systems
are now in operation at all
schools.

The installation of a new
fuel tank in our transporta-
tion department is almost
complete and should be in
operation within the next
few weeks. This should help
save the school district gen-
eral fund dollars and will as-
sist our bus fleet with an on
site station.


This year will be a year of
transition for the, leadership
in our district. Old Town El-
I ementary School has a new
i principal, Mrs. Karen Tillis
and a new Assistant Princi-
I pal, Mrs. Angel Thomas.
| Mrs. Tonya Howell will be
taking over as Director of
Finance and Business Ser-
I vices on September 30, when
J Mrs. Mary Werner retires.
I Mr. Jim Bray, Director of
I Exceptional Student Educa-


tion will be retiring Decem-
ber 30, 2009. Mr. Garry
Durham, Director of Cur-
riculum, Career, Technical
Education, and Accouintabil-
ity will be retiring at the,
end of this school year, ,x ,
along with Assistant Super-,
intendent of Schools Mr.
Ken Baumer. We will be fac-
ing many changes in our
district and school leader-
ship. I believe, as Superin-
tendent of Schools it is my
responsibility to make sure
these changes present as lit-
tle disruptive impact as pos-
sible to our students, par-
ents, and staff. I am work-
ing very hard to make sure
these changes happen in an
organized, planned, and
timely manner. As far as
Administration is con-
cerned, we are doing more
with less this year. With
state and federal mandates
at an all-time high, we have
reduced $629,900 dollars in
district administration over
this time last year.

I have been asked to speak ,
to various groups and orga-
nizations, including all
school staff, and I have
shared my goals as Superin-
tendent of Schools with all
stakeholders. My goals are:
1. Keep our children
safe and secure.
2. Hire and retain only
instructional staff who we
believe are the best avail-
able.


3. All FCAT scores at
or above the state average.
4. Establish and/or
maintain positive relation-
ships among all stakehold-
ers.
5. Acquire special fa-
cilities funding for a new
high school in Dixie County

We are in the process of
adopting a new policy to im-
plement random drug test-
ing this school year at Dixie
County High School. We
will also begin random drug
testing all staff for the first
time in our school district.
The tests will be evaluated
by an approved laboratory
and a contracted company
will send their staff to ad-
minister the drug screen-
ings. We believe every child
is entitled to a drug free en-
vironment for education.
We are seeking to counter-
act the effects of peer pres-
sure by providing additional
reasons for students to avoid
the use of drugs and alco-
hol.

For current Dixie District
Schools information, visit
our website at
http://www.dixie.kl2.fl.us.
We welcome your sugges-
tions in making this a user
friendly website for stu-
dents, parents, and the com-
munity.

dent, Dixie District Schools'

The Cool Down Lap:

Backmarkers break
Bristol's back

by Alan Ross
It has struck me more than .
once while watching Sprint
Cup action at Thunder Val-
ley, a.k.a. Bristol Motor
Speedway, that a wonderful
venue for race watching pro-
vides fans a limitless oppor-
tunity to watch just about
everything but, well; racing.

Saturday night at the
Sharpie 500, 160,000 people
watched Mark Martin com-
pletely dominate the race
but, basically lose it to the
track. While taking nothing
away from Kyle Busch's late.
push that kept him slightly
ahead of Martin for the final
67 laps, it'was a logjam of
traffic back on Lap 317 that
turned the race. That's when
Martin, with a large lead,
pulled up behind backmark-
er Kasey Kahne, who was ,
down two laps. Martin: wait-
ed forever behind Kahne but
couldn't pass him. Evytual-
ly second-place Jimmnie'
Johnson caught up to Mar-
tin and, providentially, chose
the correct lane that result-
ed in a pass of the leader.
Busch's march to thefront
soon followed. But as I said,
I'm not here to discuss
Busch's race-winning mer-
its.

I'm here to throw down the
gauntlet: chop the field at
short track races. Now, I like
the three-ring circus envi-
ronment accompanying
short-track racing like
everyone else; every seat in
the house takes in the whole
race, not just the section or
the.track where you're seat-
ed. But packing 43 sardines
into a tin can doesn't make
them taste better. There's
just more of them. Speeds at
Bristol only slightly surpass'
what you and I achieve on
the interstate. But the worst
part from the viewers' stand-
point is the perpetual pack
of cars at the rear of the
field, affectionately known
in the trade as backmarkers.
In my humble opinion, no
backmarker should ever de-


termine the outcome of a
race, but that's exactly what
Kahne did to Martin at Bris-
tol, albeit unintentionally
Poor Kahne. He had ab-
solutely nowhere to go. At
Bristol, the high line on the
turns, though frequented by
the occasional Earnhardt
Jrs. of the sport, is the only
out-of-the-way lane at Bris-
tol. That line, however, feeds
out onto the primary racing
line on both straightaways, a
formula for inevitable may-
hem, not unlike Darlington.
That mayhem occurred with
62 laps remaining, when a
multiple-car wreck took
place as a result of the pack
trying to go three Wide, try-
ing for four, down the back
straightaway

Basically, the cars are all
held hostage at Bristol: Too
many cars crammed into too
small a space. Any move-
ment at all is rarely made
without peril, stupidity, or
blind luck. Seldom is racing
skill employed; just survival
techniques.

Sadly, a frustrated Martin,
halted on track with the rest
of the field by a red flag near
the race's end that would
only allow for four green-flag
laps to close it out, could be
heard plaintively from the
cockpit of the 5 car: "Why do
they have to wreck?!," Mar-
tin said wearily over his in-
car radio. "I just wish we
could've raced for it."
/
On that note I would ask
NASCAR: Why not cut the
field for races at Bristol and
Martinsville? Forty-three
cars can't maneuver on a
short track, much less really
race. (I don't want to hear
this who-shot-John stuff
about sponsor money) It's
rush-hour traffic on a half-
mile oval with no place to
go. That's not racing. Six
cautions, including the red
flag, in the final 42 miles?
I'm with Martin. Why can't
they just race? Thin the field
for the short tracks.

THREE ARRESTED IN

MIAMI DRUG DIVERSION
SCHEME

Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE)Commis-
sioner Gerald Bailey and At-
*torney General Bill McCol-
lum today announced the ar-
rest of three individuals for
their part in a multimillion
dollar drug diversion
scheme. The three are ac-
cused of buying prescription
drugs from Medicaid recipi-
ents, repacking them and re-
selling the drugs to out of
state wholesalers.

Arrested were Jorge Her-
nandez, 45; his wife, Maria
Hernandez, 44; and Dorislays
Alejo, 22, all of Miami. The
three operated Redlands In-
vestments in Miami and
worked out of the Hernandez
home as well as two rented
warehouses located in South
Miami.

An FDLE special agent,
working as part of the Stone
Cold Task Force, followed
Jorge and Maria Hernandez
last week as they delivered
eight boxes of drugs to Feder-
al Express in Miami. The
boxes, later recovered,
contained more than $500,000
of contraband prescription
drugs, none of which was ac-
companied by legally re-
quired paperwork such as in-
voices and pedigree papers
that would show their source.
Later that week, agents
stopped a semi-trailer truck
loaded with an estimated $1
million ofcontraband pre-
scription drugs seen leaving
from a warehouse rented by
Jorge Hernandez. On
Wednesday agents from
FDLE, the Attorney Gener-
al's Medicaid Fraud Control
Unit, and the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration served
search warrants on the home
of Jorge and Maria Hernan-
dez and on the two Miami
warehouses.

Agents recovered an estimat-
ed $500,000 of additional con-
traband prescription drugs
as well as suspected forged
documentation for the drugs.

Each of the three defendants
are charged with one count
of trafficking in contraband
prescription drugs, a first-de-
gree felony punishable by up
to 30 years in prison, one
count of conspiracy to traffic
in contraband prescription
drugs, a second-degree felony
punishable by up to 15 years
in prison, 1 count of orga-
nized scheme to defraud,, 1
count of conspiracy to com-
mit organized scheme to de-
fraud.

hot dogs, cole slaw, chili dogs
and all sorts of ice cream,
some home-made and some
not, but it was all delicious.
We plan to do this every 4th
Sunday night and we invite
you to join us.

If you are a member of
Faith, check the bulletin
board in the back hallway
and you will find a list of of-
ficers for the coming year.
Look over this list and see if
there is any job, large or
small, that God is calling
you to do. We need lots of
officers, committee mem-
bers, teachers, etc. and sure-
ly there will be something
you are qualified to do and
that God would greatly bless
you for doing. Some of the
new officers have already
taken over their new posi-
tions, but there are lots of
open ones left, so sign up
and let God bless you.

We at Faith love you and will
be praying for you. Until we
meet again, may God keep
you safe, happy and healthy.

lie Combs was honored in
ceremonies at the
Gainesville VA nursing
home by some 175 veterans
and their wives.
Combs, a prisoner of war in
Japan, a marine and Army
veteran is a patient in the
VA hospital hospice unit.
The ceremonies were held
in the recreation room at
the hospital to honor Combs
for his many contributions
to his country
Combs and his wife Yvonne
used the occasion to renew
their wedding vows.
The local Marine Corps
league, VFW, American le-
gion and his many friends
showed up for the colorful
and friendly visit, combs
was a young Marine sta-
tioned on Guam when the
Japanese bombed Pearl Har-
bor on Dec. 7, 1941. The
Japanese invaded Guam the
nest day and combs was tak-
en Prisoner.
Four years later and a cou-
ple of days after the war
ended, a group of Marines
landed in Japan. Their first
and prime mission was to
free and remove the prison-
ers of war to hospital ships
in the harbor. Among the
marines was a young Dixie
County Marine who assisted
in the location, and re-
turned of the POWS that
was located. Wes Ward, a
native of Dixie County and
graduate of Dixie County
High School was among the
rescue group. He was among
the group honoring Combs.
It was a very colorful cere-
mony, according to those in
attendance. Combs was
dressed in the Marine Corps
dress blue uniform, even
though he is confined a
wheel chair.


When Combs was pushed
into the reception room, the
room, the room exploded
with all singing the Marine
Corps hymn
Many of those in atten-
dance were Marine(no such
thing as ex- Marine) readily
identifying themselves as
Marines wearing their Ma-
rine Corps league shirts,
caps, and uniform.
Combs and his wife decided
to renew their wedding
vows after 40 years.
Yvonne is a native of Viet-
nam. Her father was a
French army officer and her
mother was a Vietniamese.
Their three granddaughters.
Samantha, 15, Amanda, 13,
and Vanessa 9, participated
in ceremony.
Rev. Mike Brown of the
Cross City Baptist Church
officiated at the wedding.
Eyes popped out as Yvonne
entered the room for the
ceremony on the arm of Ma-
rine LtCol Joe Creech, ret.
Of Trenton in full Marine
Corps Dress Blue uniform.
It was-the very colorful
dress and cap worn by
Yvonne. It was a hand em-
broidered traditional dress
worn of Oriental royalty
Very few in attendance if
any had ever seen such a
colorful bride. Underneath
the colorful cape Yvonne
had a black and gold gown.
There was a huge wedding
cake and refreshments and
lots of talk about the beauty
of Yvonne's wedding cos-
tume.
Combs spent a year in lios-
pitals recovering from his
POW years. He was then dis-
charged from the Marines.
Shortly thereafter, the Army
Recruiting service offered
him a high rank than the
Marine Corps Platoon
Sergeant and he enlisted. He


was promoted through the
rank to commissioned war-
rant office. He retired from
the service and went to
work for the U.S. Depart-
ment of State doing special
work in Vietnam. He was in
war in Korea and was again
under fire in Vietnam.

When the ceremony was
over, Yvonne, an author and
was educated as a Lawyer in
Vietnam, had a book signing
session she is the author of
a book detailing much of
her life, her visits to her
French father, her difficulty
going from a French back-
ground to a local school
when she could not speak
Vietnamese. She is now flu-
ent in several languages,
she titled her book
"Metisse" which translates
to "half breed"


Marines are known for their
comradeship and teamwork
and they showed it in honor
of Charlie Combs, a man
who symbolize the word
"Veteran"
