They're definitely not

The Williams family of
Dixie County joined thou-
sands of concerned citi-
zens who marched on
Washington, D.C. to protest
out-of-control government
spending and government
overreach as a part of the
9/12 movement. Becky,

the Chieflaid Citizen,
Grace, center, is a DCHS
graduate and works at Mc-
Donalds, and Bob works at
the Timbers Apartments in
Cross City

Mrs. Williams told the Ad-
vocate, "The reason I HAD
to go was I have never been
as frightened in my life as I


am now for my country In 7
months this administration
is trying to change us from
a Republic-into something
else. The
govern-
ment has
taken over
the banks,
and the
auto in-
dustry and
now they
want to
take over
health
care.


Two pnests they ran into, one Irom New York one from
Philadelphia. The one on the right from New York had a sticker
that read, "Lord, forgive the liberals,
they know not what they do."


On top of
that we
don't have
any money
... Capital-
ism works,
but not with


a government boot on it's
neck."

She continued, "Being in
DC was the most exhilarat-
ing experience of my life. I
felt like an American doing
my part to take America
back. I think maybe that's
how the men who threw the
tea into Boston Harbor
must have felt."

Garland and Sue White, of
White's Pump Service in
Old Town (parents of Mike
at Huckleberry's BBQ) also
attended the event and are
expected back on Wednes-
day.

ways to prepare a work-
force to meet these future
needs.

At a special meeting Mon-
day evening, the County
Commission voted to re-
place serving County Attor-
ney Leenette McMillan
with Jennifer Ellison.

Chairman Marvin Hunt
and Commissioner Troy
Johnson protested the
change, both making state-
ments for the record that
Ms. McMillan has provided
excellent service and that
there wa' no need to re-
place her at this time.
Chairman Hunt made a
point of stating that "This
just isn't right." Several cit-
izens also stood and spoke
in praise of Ms. McMillan.

According to witnesses at
the meeting, Ms. McMillan
had to be removed in order
to consider the other appli-
cants, and the Commission
did so. Marion Michael '
O'Steen's name was put for-
ward by Commissioner Hig-
ginbotham, but received no
Votes. Ms. Ellison's name
was put forward, and she
also received no votes. Ms.
McMillan's name was put
forward, and Chairman'


Hunt and Commissioner
Johnson voted for her, but
Edmonds, Hatch and Hig-
ginbotham did not vote yes.

The fourth applicant, Don
Curtis,.of Perry, was not
put forward at all.

Mr. Curtis told the Advocate
that he "wasn't informed or
contacted that it would be
considered at the meeting
and my calls to Mike Cas-
sidy went unreturned." The
meeting was in fact not ad-
vertised in newspapers, but
a flyer was posted on the
Courthouse door on Friday
afternoon because the date
and time of the meeting
had been changed from
Tuesday to Monday due to
schedule conflicts. Florida
Sunshine law only requires
24-hour notice of non-emer-
gency meetings.

Mr. Curtis has his own.
practice in Perry, and has
been working as an Assis-
tant Public Defender in the
Third Circuit.

ACORN exposed big-time
In case there was any doubt, the Association of Community
Organizers for Reform Now, otherwise known as ACORN,
has been exposed as a thoroughly corrupt organization,
thanks to FOX News and some enterprising independent
journalists.

The term "community organizers" ought to ring a bell.
This country-elected a "community organizer" as our Presi-
dent last November. That was Barack Obama's occupation
before he got into politics as a candidate. The exact extent
of his ties to ACORN at the present time is somewhat un-
certain, and in light of recent developments, we'd better not
be looking fbr any additional candor on that subject any--
time soon. . .. , . . , .

Obama has passed a few favors along to ACORN since the
election, most notably getting them involved in the 2010
Census;

however, the Census Bureau has put the kibosh on involv-
ing ACORN, and I have no doubt that the President had
something to do with that. After all, he has already stated
that the White House is going to be running the 2010 Cen-
sus . .

What happened was this: A very attractive, scantily-clad
young woman named Hannah Giles and a garishly dressed
man named James O'Keefe entered an ACORN office with
Giles posing as a prostitute and O'Keefe as her pimp.
O'Keefe was packing a hidden video camera, enabling the
incriminating visual and sound recording of the events
that took place.

What took place surprised even our enterprising investiga-
tors, who had hoped to gatherer some incriminating kernel
of evidence, but they hardly anticipated the red carpet
treatment they received.

The ACORN employees were told up front that Giles and
O'Keefe wanted help getting a mortgage so they could open
a house of prostitution, and that they planned to get a
dozen or so underage girls from a Latin American country:
to work there.. What they got was advice on how they could
pull this off, including how to conceal the money they
would be making and assurances that ACORN would help
them every step along the way.

When FOX News aired the expose last week, you can be cer-
tain that a lot of people got nervous. As of this writing,
ACORN has fired four. employees, and no doubt a few more,
will be getting their pink slips, because whatf)OX News fea-
tured was no isolated incident. Thus far the scam has ex-
posed similar corruption in Washington, DC, Baltimore and
New York City I believe one could surmise that this indi-
cates a pattern.

Officials at ACORN have canned a handful of employees
who let the cat out of the bag, but they're also protesting
that the sting operation that got their outfit exposed was il-
legal. And perhaps it was, though law enforcement uses
similar tactics to get the goods on drug dealers and other
miscreants--including prostitutes and pimps-- all the time.
ACORN officials are also threatening legal action against
FOX News, and there can be little doubt that the ACLU will
come down on the side of .these would-be enablers of the
world's oldest profession.

Of course, when you're going up against FOX News, you're.
not just messing with a couple of crafty, free-lance investi-
gators. FOX News deals with this sort of thing on a regular
basis. Besides, what prosecutor wants to weigh in on the
side of people who were willing to misuse their positions
with a federally-subsidized organization to enable an illegal
activity?

Well, there's Mike Nifong, of Duke University rape case in-
famy, but I don't think he's prosti...excuse me, prosecuting
anymore. If the Obama administration is smart, they'll
throw ACORN Under the bus along with a laundry list of
other former associates, and maybe even investigate the
matter of ACORN registering illegal aliens and dead people
to vote in the 2008 election--although that could prove to be
even more embarrassing than anything that's happened
thus far.

You Lie!!


by Kathy McKinney


.he headline above may lead you to think
'that I'm going to harangue you this week
bout Joe Wilson of South Carolina, who had
e gall to stand up and yell during President
bamna's umpteenth boring speech. To be
honest, I missed it--about ten minutes in, I start-
ed dozing off and woke with a start, thinking I was back in
Mrs. Engers Calculus class-- it was so mind-numbingly dull.
I saw it everywhere else, though, afterwards. When Obama
got to the part about illegals not being covered under a pub-
lic health plan, Mr.Wilson lost it and yelled, "You lie!" I'd
love to go off on that, and I probably could spend a few thou-
sand words telling you why I admire the man for standing
up and being rude on national television, but not this week.
We need more men like him!

.1 think that our government should go back to a more con-
f'rontational-type speech. Everybody says we need "more ci-
vility in politics." I don't think so. Quite
-frankly, I've had enough of. slimy political "A lie
dodging and lawyerlike non-answers to im-
portant questions. There's a time for playing sense UI
"nice-nice" and there's a time (to quote H.L.
Mencken) "to hoist the jolly roger and start were felt a
slitting throats."

It hasn't been so very long ago that we had ac-
tual duels on the Senate floor. Our lawmakers
haven't always been bloodless, cowering weasels. Don't get
me wrong, I'm not advocating violence, I'm thinking of
, .something like Britain's "Prime Minister's Questions." If
you haven't caught that on CSPAN, you should. It's breath-
takingly rude sometimes. It's never dull. It also seems to be
very effective. Lawmakers ask the Prime Minister tough.
questions to his face, with cameras present, and if he
dodges, they boooooo and yell and hold him accountable. It's
lovely entertainment. It's miles and miles away from the
pre-digested pap that comes out of White House briefings..
We need less soothing, obviously false politician-speak from,
"angels on-high" and a whole lot more plain truth, in.plain
language. And yes, solietinmes a little yelling is in order.

In case you'were wondering,- Obama was lying when Mr.
Wilson called him on it. Bald-facedly lying. He claims that
his health care plan won't cover illegals. It did, but appar-
ently in response to the outcry in sympathy with Joe Wil-
son's outrage, the Obama Administration agreed Friday to
include some sort of "verification" to keep illegals from get-
:ting liposuction on our tax dollar.

- But no, I didn't intend to talk about Joe Wilson this week,
because lately, when I think of lies, one thing comes to
mind: the mainstream media. I should tell you now: I'm a
"Beck head." I love Glknn Beck. I'm not afraid to say it, and
I'm not ashamed to tell you that I'm'glued to my TV 'eiyrer
day at 5:00. Yes. I know he's over the top, and yes, I know he
- cries at the drop of a lhat, but I love him anyway He may be
the person who saves our Republic. Yes, seriously

So I've known for weeks and weeks that Obama's "Green
jobs czar" Van Jones is a fruitcake. Beck has been showing
statements he's made, hammering him, really, for a month
now. He showed stuff the man said about becoming a com-
munist in jail--after being arrested in some race riots in '92,!
screaming rants about wanting to "give the wealth" back to
the Indians, about white people pumping poisons into the
black community, and that only white kids commit
Columbine-like massacres. Then it came out that he had
not only signed a petition, he helped organize one of those
"truther" rallies blaming George Bush for being behind
9/11. It became quite a hornets' nest.

Right-wing blogs were linking to videos of the man and his
off-the-wall statements and his racist comments. People
were calling for him to be fired. It was all over the internet.
It was all over Fox News, But unless you are a right-wing
news junkie, you never heard a word about it. The venera-
ble New York Times? Surely they would give up some
newsprint to such a controversy? Nope. Not one word.
CNN? Nope. MSNBC? Nope. ABC? Nope?


would have no
niess the truth'
is dangerous."


NBC? Surely, you jest.


The first time anyone who depends on
mainstream media heard of the whole
thing was after Van Jones had been forced:


to resign..on Labor Day weekend at mid-
Alfred Adler night. Until then, the "news" people just
"forgot" to mention it to you. They decided
that their infatuation with the current ad-
ministration and their desire prop it up was more important
than your "right to know." A lie of omission is just as bad
as a lie of commission, isn't it? They had information about
something important, something that might shape your
thinking, and they lied to you. They kept people in the.dark
until it became obvious that their cover-up wouldn't hold
water.

So they buried it on page 12, or did their best to spin their
negligence. Bill Maher. in his column says that Jones was
forced to resign because he called Republicans a four-letter
word. Um, no Bill. It was because he accused the President
of the United States of planning 9/11. The New York Times
blames staffing cuts and the Labor Day weekend for their
lack of coverage. OK, what about all of those other week-
days, Gray Lady? The San Francisco Chronicle went with
the classic "shoot the messenger" ploy and blamed his firing
on a "watermelon hypothesis," claiming that Beck is just af-
ter the "black man." Oh, puh-leeze. It's not that Van Jones is
a deranged Marxist, accusing whites of poisoning black
children, it's the people who drag him out of the conspiracy-
theory closet who are racist. Yeah, sure.

It's our responsibility as citizens to keep up with what the
politicians are doing, Republicans and Democrats. We have,
to stay alert for the.falsehoods, and for the media telling us
to "pay no attention'tolthe man behinfdt the curtain." We '
have to do our duty as citizens; but we need the media to do
theirs, too. Our job is that much harder now, and God help
the country. Because they lie.


speak up and get involved in
taking our country back and
keeping her true to the Con-
stitution.

Throughout the whole pro-
gram,, people let their agree-
ment be known by clapping
and shouts of "yes, yes', or
U.S.A, U.S.A, U.S.A." They
came expecting and they,
were not disappointed.
Many expressed a desire to
have future rallies and to
learn more about what we
can do take back our coun-
try and keep our freedoms.

Trail Riders
By Bonnie Wilson
At last our trail rides have
begun once again. It's a lit-
tle bitter sweet for me be-
cause I lost Dusty, my blue-
eyed wonder horse to cancer
over the summer. It's a very
hard thing to deal with, a
bitter pill to swallow, but I'd
like to thank my family and
friends for being there for
me. Thanks to my husband
Dave, I was back in the sad-
dle today with one of his
horses.

Buddy is
a like- i6
able fel-
low, big
and
sweet.
He gave 1
me a
great
ride to- '
day at
Devil's
Ham- ,
mock.
Along
on the
trail to-
day was
Bud and
Donna
Sharp, Leonora Hale, Debra
Darwin, Phil Parent, and
Dave and myself. It seemed
most of our club members
thought Sunday was going
to be a wash out due,to the
rain. However, the skies
were blue and not gray, for
us to kick off our first ride
of the season.

Devils Hammock is located
off of highway 19 and about
2 % miles down Highway 24
heading east. Mostly used
for hunting, not too many
equestrians use it. The trails
are well marked and shaded
thru most areas. However
they are a bit rocky and our ,
horses took to the bushes for
relief of their feet.

I was a bit timid about my

ride and I asked my friends
to go ahead of me and allow
Buddy and I to ride with
Dave and his horse Gus at
the back of the group. To
tell you the truth I really
was not overly anxious to
ride without my long time
partner, Dusty There
seemed to be a large knot in
my throat this morning.
Must have been that bitter
pill we spoke of earlier.

I did manage to find a good
path right down the middle
of the trail where there
were not many rocks, on the
other hand there were horse
flies about the size of hum-
ming birds
wearing re-
bocks, a back-
pack and a
boom box at-
tached to his
wings! Good
Grief, so now
we're back in
the bushes for
more relief! I
managed to

bushy limb to

damage con-
trol and Bud-

ciated my
help.


What had started out to be a
possibly wet and rainy day
suddenly turned into open
blue skies and white clouds
for the entire trail ride. For
once I was glad the weather-
man's prediction didn't hold
up. We all arrived back at
the trailhead at different-in-
tervals and gathered togeth-
er to eat lunch and chat
about the different trails
that had been ridden.

All in all it was a good start
to our trail riding adven-

we're' "back in the saddle'

The start of the second quarter was
also the start of a multitude of penal-
ties called on both teams. If the num-
ber of flags thrown was paying the offi-
cials, then they earned their pay Fri-
day night. The unofficial total for the
night was 17 penalties. Despite this, the
game was exciting as both teams were
deadlocked in a defensive battle, with
the Devils finally tying the score in the
last minute of-the half.

The second half saw the Bears defend-
ing their goal first. On the Devils first
play, Freshman Javonta Jones makes a
huge tackle halting a potential touch
down run; this was followed by solid
defensive play from Travis Pierce,
Chris Blacketer, and Cody Spurlin stop-
ping the Devils from scoring. The Bear
offense struggled, between penalties
and short yardage gains by Godbolt
and Washington, but could not make
anything happen in the third.

the Devils overcame the
Dixie defense and score on
the third down. The extra
point was good and the Dev-
ils lead now by seven
points. The Bears get their
chance in overtime as they
start on the ten-yard mark.
Quarterback Keen calls the
play, handing the ball to
"freight train" Mike West
who pushes his way over
the goal line. The score is
now 13 to 14 with the Devils
leading by one. The Bears,
in a team decision decide to
go for two for the win. Keen
gets the snap, hands off to
Godbolt, who is stopped just
short ending the game with
the Devils winning by one
point.

chance to make headway against the

fense. Keen and com-

"Lord help us to learn" was
the post game comments
... . from the Dixie coaching
staff. Coach Wilkerson told
the team, "Learn from the
loss, we won't let this stop us from our


Volleyball


goals and we will work together at get-
ting better." The coach when ques-
tioned about the decision to go for the
two points stated, "This was strictly a
team choice, they wanted the win and
decided to go for two and I supported
their desire. What set us back were the
penalties, that put us behind the chains
all night, but I am well pleased by the
defensive performance anyway"

Team cumulative stats show Godbolt
with 23 attempts and 137 yards, Pierce
11 for 70, West 12 for 96 and Keen with
11 and 52. Godbolt is leading the Bears
scoring with 18 points followed by
Mike West at 12. Next week the Bears

fore the county did not have
an attorney at all. After
some deliberation, Ms. Elli-

again, by Commissioner Ed-

procedure requires that if a

Fanning Springs
councilman honored'
for 40 years of service
By Carrie A. Mizell

Richard Nixon was sworn in
as the 37th president of the
United States and the Beat-
les gave their final public
performance the same year
Jim White was sworn in as a
Fanning Springs City Coun-
cil member.

A celebration was held last
Tuesday to honor White for
his 40-year tenure on the
city council. Eleven days shy
of his 80th birthday, White
has decided not to seek re-'
election when his term ex-
pires in December 2010.
"You know when you stay
there as long as I have, you
get to thinking people don't
care," White said. "But .then
when they do something like
they did the other night.
well, it just makes you wish
you could do another 40
years. But knowing you
can't."

During the celebration
White was presented with
plaques ,from the Florida
League of Cities, the City of
Fanning Springs, and a
plaque with a letter written
to him by Florida Governor
Charlie Crist. In the letter,
Crist congratulated White
for his 40 years of service,
saying "Your hard work and
. dedication to advocate on be-
, half of the citizens of Fan-
ning Springs is inspiring, as
.. you have been an active
voice for your local fire de-
partment and many commu-
nity projects over the years."
During his tenure on the
city council, which officially
started in October 1968,
White has been very in-
volved with the city's fire
department, which was
started when some 10 nfem-
bers of the community,
including White, donated


$100 each."The forestry de-
partment donated an old
Dodge truck, which was a
lot," White recalls. "We did-
n't have much of a fire de-
partment back then. Ronnie
McQueen has come along
since and done a super job
with the fire department."

,The Fanning Springs fire de-
partment is number one in
the tri-county area, and if
you don't believe it just ask
this proud city councilman.
"I might be just a little prej-
udice," White said with a
laugh.


According to .city officials,
White has also worked tire-
lessly over the years to see
that roads are paved
throughout the city
After becoming a council
member in 1969, White went
on to become vice chair for
the first time in 1971 and lat-
er chairman of the council
for the first time in 1972.
"The town was founded in
1965 and there were no taxes
for the first 20 years," White
said. "Folks were promised
that they wouldn't have tax-
es and they didn't until the
federal government said we
had to have a tax base, but
it started out at no more


than 1 mill."

When White joined the city
council, he said the city's an-
nual budget was $7,000 com-
pared to today's budget,
which is over $1 million.
"Money wise we've done a'
good job, but not with
growth," White said.
Lujan Barden, water clerk
for the city of Fanning
Springs, said that White has
given endless hours to the
city during his 40 years of
service.


Prior to hearing that White
would not be seeking re-elec-
tion, Barden said, "We're
not sure if he is planning to
seek re-election, but we're
all hoping he will run
again."

White explained that he has
had some health problems
in recent years, including a
quadruple bypass, which led
him to make the decision to
not seek re-election.
"My thinking isn't as fast
and my patience ain't as
good," White said.
"If I was still up to par I
would love to make another
40 years!"

How to Buy a Quality Used Car or

Truck Under $200 a Month Without a

Penny Out of Your Pocket


Gainesville, FL -
Now more than ever;
great quality and great
value are what's on every-
one's mind. How can you
get the most car for the least
money? Wade Raulerson
Honda has the answer.
"We've had car after car
and truck after truck
returned to us. People
simply can't make the
payments any more and
just bring the vehicle back.
We've got so many of them,
our only option is to let new
customers take over loans
on the vehicles and start
making payments," said
Jason Dillon, used car sales
manager-
Wade Raulerson Honda
has row after row of quality
pre-owned vehicles available
for this program. Their
service department, which
is one of the top. rated
service departments in the
state, has inspected, recondi-
tioned and certified vehicles.
"We just need to move
these vehicles for the banks.
Right now, you can get a
used car or truck, many less
than a year or two old, for
less than two hundred
dollars a month without a
penny out of your pocket.
This is a program I haven't
seen in twenty years in the
business," added Dillon.
Late model vehicles,
which have already had
thousands of dollars in
payments made against
them are being brought
back at a staggering rate.
- The bank nor dealership
wants these vehicles since


they've already been
retailed. The banks and the
dealership are looking for
good customers - with
good credit or bad - who
are willing to take
payments on these vehicles.

"Right now, you
can get a used
car or truck,
many less than a
year or two old,
tor less than two
hundred dollars a
month without a
penny out of
your pocket."
- Jason Dillon,
Used Car Sales Manager
Wade Raulerson Honda

"There's not a vehicle
on our lot that can't be
bought for under two
hundred dollars per month
- and these aren't clunkers.
Look at this example - a
2007 Ford F-150. XLT,
Stk#FH8310, with $0 down
is just $197 per month for
72 months at 5.9% APR
with approved credit plus
tax; tag and title. And I've
got fifty other cars and
trucks that are similar
values," added Dillon.
Dealerships and banks
aren't in the business
of taking, back vehicles
when customers can't
make payments. They'd
rather get them off
their books immediately
and will do whatever is
necessary to do so.
Wade Raulerson Honda


has taken all of the
vehicles and put them in a
special section on their lot.
Any interested consumers
who'd like to view the
inventory should call the
dealership to make an
appointment.
"All we're asking is to
make an appointment.
We've got these vehicles
sectioned off and they're
ready to be driven,
inspected and taken home
today. We're clearly posting
prices and payments. If you
see a vehicle you like, but
aren't happy about the take
over price - simply, make an
offer I'm sure you hear
stories every day of banks
and businesses taking
pennies on the dollar for
surplus products. I don't
see why any offer will be
refused," finished Dillon.
Wade Raulerson Honda
has been Gainesville's
top dealership for many
years. Respected by Honda
and the community,
the dealership has built
its business on fantastic
products, great customer
service and prices that you
can feel good about.
Interested consumers
should call the dealership at
1-877-639-8148. This event
is going on through 8:00pm
Monday.
"After that, we've got to
ship inventory off this lot.
We can't let it sit here forever
for the banks or lenders.
Make an offer now, or you
may miss an opportunity to
get a great car under $200
per month," added Dillon.

and Agriculture teacher at
Dixie County High School

health complications this

ery. His wife, their three
sons and extended family

medical costs are stagger-
ing and family's budget and
insurance are nearly ex-
hausted. Matt and his fami-
ly need our prayers and fi-
nancial support.

leadership off FFA and has
been recognized statewide
for not only turning around
a program, but giving many
students opportunities they
wouldn't otherwise have.

Many of his students have
gone on to be'very success-
ful because of the FFA skills
taught to them by Matt. His
impact has been substantial
and he is missed in his posi-
tion as teacher, advisor,
friend and co-worker. He
has been a mentor to many

hours volunteering in the
community to make it a bet-

For more information on
this movie: The BORDER
DVD takes a firsthand look
at the dire and real human
consequences of America's
failure to secure its bor-
ders. This feature-length
documentary unleashes a
haunting, inside look at
what has arguably become
a war zone: Rape Trees, ille-
gal immigration, drug
smuggling, sex trafficking,
Mexican military incur-
sions and more -- all taking
place at the United States'
southern border. From
drug cartels and smuggler
towns to besieged Ameri-

FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH NEWS


Church was wonderful today The weather was delightful
and the crowd was large. In the morning service, Lynette
Allen sang a beautiful song and touched the hearts of
everyone. In the evening service Terry Gobel sang. Both
services were great. If you missed either service today, you
truly missed a blessing.

Some of our folks who had been out sick were able to be
back and that's always great. We added several to our
prayer list, but were able to remove several as well. Re-.
� member the ones who are still on there in the coming week
and we thank God for the ones we were able to remove.

InVite sbmeohe"t6t come t6 Sunday School and Church with
you next week and God will richly bless you for it.

Until we meet again, we pray that God will watch over you,
keep you safe, happy and healthy and that we will see you
again next week.

New Prospect Baptist
Church News

Sunday, September 13 our
Sunday school lessons came
from the 2nd chapter of
Mark where Jesus healed the
palsied man when they
helped him reach Jesus.

In our Sunday morning ser-
vice, Brother Billy brought a
spirited message from Luke
16:19-31 about Lazarus and
the rich man.

Sunday night we were
blessed with many children
returning for the start of our
Awana Program. They en-
joyed pizza and learned Bible
verses while our adult class
had a Bible study from the


2nd chapter of Acts.

Brother Billy spoke about
faith Sunday night in an ex-
hilarating message in Which
he detailed that everything
we experience is an opportu-
nity for our faith to grow!
We will enjoy fried chicken
with all the trimmings this
Wednesday night at fellow-
ship supper and invite all to
come join in the fellowship
and food with us. NPBC will
be hosting the Freedom Fest
gathering on Saturday, Sep-
tember 26 and ignite all to
come share in the fun for
that. If. you are looking for a
church, come join with us at
New Prospect Baptist
Church. We welcome you to
come join with us. -

ed to officially reopen the

way Patrol was tbrced to
close it due to budget con-,
cerns.
The Cross City Driver's Li-
cense office officially re-
opened under Mrs. Cannon'
supervision on August 27. ,
The State of Florida an-
nounced that it would be
closing the Cross City office
on July first, and seeing tha
Dixie County residents
would be forced to drive to
other counties for service,
Mrs. Cannon began to nego
tiate with the state in order
to take over the responsibility
ty.
The Driver's License Agenc:

main at it's current location

ing final preparations to re-
s open the Cross City office
- by August 27, a "Flowmo-
bile" from Tallahassee as-
sisted with providing driver
license services to the coun-
t ty. It was parked in front of
the office August 25-26 and
serviced approximately 50
Dixie Countfrtsidents.
the Driver's License
i-Agency will provide driver's
license services only Other
services, such as tag regis-
y trations and renewals, will
e still be handled in the main
