On September 11, 20009 the
Dixie County Sheriffs Of-
flee received a report from
a Cross City resident who
reported his bank card
missing. According to the
victim, he a
had already
been in con.
tact with his
bank and was
informed that
there was
$1,400 dollars
worth of
transactions
on his card
since the time
of the theft.
It was learned
through the
invest igation
and inter.
views with witnesses that
Taminy McDonald, 43yoa,
of Old Town was a suspect.
The Sheriffs Office was
able to confirm through the
bank that there was in fact
$603 dollars worth of ftand-
ulent transactions on the
card during the time of
theft '


On September 21, 2009, a
Sheriff's deputy observed
McDonald walking along
CR351. Upon making con-
tact with McDonald, she
was inter-
viewed
about the
theft and
during
this inter
view, Mc-
Donald
admitted
to using
the card.
McDonald
stated that
she used
the card
twice for
groceries
and once for the a with-
drawal to purchase crack
cocaine.
McDonald was booked into
the Dixie County Jail and
charged with Grand Theft.
She has since posted bond

appearances.

ment of Human Services in a case where a "shell corpora-
tion" was established to shanghai more than 42,000 home-
based day care business owners into a "government employ-
ees union." On behalf of two babysitters, Sherry Loar and
Dawn Ives, the MCLF filed an action at the Michigan Court
of Appeals seeking to stop the DHS from improperly siphon-
irig "union dues" out of state subsidy checks meant to pro-
vide assistance to low-income parents. Michigan also ex-
panded the idea of day care to cover people who watch or
provide assistance to the elderly on Medicare or Medicaid,
too. The MCLF estimates that the little scam will rack up a
tidy $4,000,000 in union dues.

Apparently, Loar and Ives, who babysit out of their own
homes as licensed private home child care providers, were
shocked to get a letter telling them that they were now mem-
bers of the "Child Care Providers Together Michigan"
* Union and that without their permission, money was going
to be sucked out of their babysitting checks to pay union
dues. None of these people work for the government. They
don't get government health insurance or
one considers the benefits. They've just been made faux "gov-
ernment employees" by legislative fiat just
leader it becomes to fatten the coffers of a unioh. Uncle Sam

think I've mentioned here before that Iread
eally an embarrassing amount of informa-
tion on the internet every day I've been do-
ing it so long that I have big gigantic book-
marked lists of news sites and blogs that I in-
gest, sort of mindlessly, one by one. Little nuggets of mfor-
mation stick in my head and sometimes I'm able to make
connections from all of that random data.

Today, three separate news stories caught my attention at
different times. I was in the kitchen, making strawberry
Jello for the kids when they sort of blended together in a
sort of eureka sort of way One story was weird, two was
kind of strange, three similar stories in one day makes a
disturbing trend,


The first item wasn't even an American story, since it hap-
-
pened in the U.K. Apparently, someone called in to the gov
ernment and reported that two local moms of
toddlers--who had been fk'iends since they The mor
were toddlers- were taking turns watching
each other's children so that they could both matter, th
e
work part time without having to pay for day that redis
care. Wow, I thought. This is news? Doesn't far less a r
everybody do this? In jolly old England, ap' income fr
patently, this type of arrangement, even if no
money is ever exchanged and it's just done to poorest as
"help each other out," is illegal. Yep, illegal. redistrib
That is, unless both moms submit to back- the ind
ground checks and jump through hoops to be-
come registered "childminders."
The...ahem...nanny state stepped in and now
-
both moms have had to quit their jobs that
didn't pay enough for "state apliroved"
babysitting. Well, sure, we have laws regulating paid day
care here, but something that silly could never happen in
the land of the ft-ee and the brave.


imagined, than a What do these stories have in common?
of power from Aside from the obvious child-care angle,
ual to the State. they all demonstrate that when legislation
"for your own good" allows the government
to poke it's nose in private matters, noth-
rand de Jouvenel ing good ever results. (Also, it seems to be a
good idea not to have nasty, Gladys Kravitz-
type neighbors, who peek out of their win-
dows and call the cops a lot, but I digress.) The govern-
ment wanted to "protect" children froni bad people, so it re-
quires background checks, licensing, and (inevitably) fees.
It sounds reasonable and well-meaning, at.first. Then, it ex-
tends creepy tendrils of authority to tell you who is allowed
to watch your children, then it forces them into unions. It's
only a hopskip and a jump from that to buying a kid a soda
or a Butterfinger and finding yourself clapped in irons and
sentenced to Rafford for "contributing to the obesity of a mi-
nor."

Uncle Sam has decided that if he writes any portion of the
check, he gets to make all the rules, and you can be forced to
pay tribute to his Union buddies at gunpoint. This prece-
dent could be applied to anyone who gets government mon-
ey of any type: doctors who see patients with Medicaid,
homebuilders or contractors who build or work on homes
that get SmP money or federal financing, auto shops who
work on "Cash for Clunkers" cars...even bag boys at stores .
that take food stamps could fall under the "union" label.

Today's news made it obvious to me that if you give up a
single inch of liberty for "safety," the government will take
that mile, sooner or later. Nanny state, indeed.

Yeah, well, not so much. Enter some poor, well-meaning
woman in Middleville, Michigan, who lives right in ft-ont of
the school bus stop. She started watching her neighbor's
kids at the bus stop for the half-hour or so it took the bus to
arrive, so that the parents could drop off the kids and get to
work on time. She didn't charge anything; she just hap-
pened to live right there and liked kids. So she kept an eye
on the munchkins for her friends until they got on the bus
safely Apparently her dog peed on a neighbor's rose bush
or something and they got ticked off and called the Dept. of
Children and Families and said the woman was "running a
day care without a license." Now the poor woman is being
threatened with huge fines or even jail time, and the kids
are standing on the road, unsupervised. Good thing the gov-
ernment was there to look after those kids, huh?

But what really got me thinking was another story, that co-
incidentally, also is happening in Michigan. (Word to the
wise, stay out of the Badger State.) The Mackinac Center

Alert Dixie County Taxpayers

The good people of Dixie
County need to ask ques.
tions about why the Dixie
County Board of Commis-
stoners are throwing away
their money.

I am very worried about
some decisions that the Dix-
le County Commissioners
are making without any re-
gard to the budget. Septem-
ber 14, 2009 the DCBC fired
their attorney and hired a
new attorney. The validity
of the hiring should be in
Question.but what I am most
concerned with is the price
the taxpayers of Dixie
County will have to pay.

My understanding is that
Ms. McMillan's contract
was not tip until October 3,
2009. The DCBC fired her
2% weeks before the end of
her contract and they have
to buy her contract out.
Some of the board members
talked about it being better
to hire an attorney that
lives in Dixie County. Ms,
McMillan lives in Horseshoe
Beach Dixie County.-Ms. El-
lison, the new hire, does not
live in Dixie County, but her
relatives do..It appears to
me that this board has more
interest in who can provide
a vote than doing the right
thing for Dixie County
It was stated that Ms.
McMillan did nothing
wrong, so she was fired
without cause. That being
said the contract buy out
will cost the county
$24,000.00. The DCBC has

In 2004, when it looked like Massachusetts Senator John
Kerry might be elected President, the State Legislature hur.
riedly passed a bill withdrawing the authority of the gover-
nor to name a replacement for' a squator whose term was
interrupted by developments such akdbath or election to a
higher office.
At that time, the Massachusetts Legislature consisted of a
substantial majority of Democrats; however, the Governor
was (gasp) a Republican! Mitt Romney, in fact, who may
turn out to be a factor in the 2012 presidential election, but
I'm getting ahead of myself*
Obviously, the Democrat-controlled legislature didn't want
the Republican governor naming a Republican to replace a
Senate Democrat who had just been elected President. For-
tunately, that eventuality never came about, but the powers
that be in Boston weren't taking a chance that a victory for
their man Kerry might also mean the loss of a Senate seat
to the evil Republicans.

Now, the situation has changed. Democrats still enjoy a
large majority in the Massachusetts Legislature, however
the governor, Deval Patrick, is also a Democrat, and accord-
ing to the policy hastily established during the 2004 presi-
dential campaign, Patrick could not name an interim sub-
stitution for the late Senator Edward Kennedy, whose re-
placement would be determined by a special election to be
held in January of next year.

This would leave the Senate Democrats one vote shy of the
60 vote super-majority, which would be needed to squelch
any significant effort to block President Obama's radical
agenda, as 60 votes in the Senate is sufficient to cut off de-
bate and bring pending legislation to an immediate floor
vote.

Following passage by the State House, the Massachusetts
State Senate voted 24-16 for a rapid reversal of their 2004 po-
sition, giving Governor Patrick the green light to appoint
Paul Kirk, a former DNC Chairman and, as far as I have
been able to determine, no relation. to fbymer Florida Gov-
ernor Claude Kirk, who was a 10pub1 can when he wasn't a
Democrat,' when he wasn't a Republican or something else.

Interestingly enough, while the Massachusetts State Senate
voted 24-16 in favor of the proposal to get Paul Kirk to the
US Senate immediately, before any critical votes could be-
taken therein, at least 11 of the "nay" votes had to come
from Democrats, as there are only 5 Republicans in the
Massachusetts State Senate. Could this indicate a lapse in
party loyalty even in this bastion of entrenched liberalism,
or have I been watching too many Glenn Beck shows?

What we have here is, of course technically legal. And ordi-
narily I would be delighted to see a state government exer-
cise some authority in the control of what goes on--or at
least who or what goes to--Washington. But this caper reeks
with the stench of Chicago-style politics...now, how did I
happen to think of that?
Boston is not like Chicago...or is it?

If it makes any difference, interim appointee Paul Kirk has
reportedly been admonished by someone with more author-
ity than a mere United States.Senator not to run for the of-
fice in January, when the entire state will get a chance to
vote on who will be the Senator from Maisachusetts until
2012.

It would be interesting to know who's making decisions
such as this. Maybe we need to get Hannah Giles and James
O'Keefe to check it out after they get done beating up on
ACORN.

Trall Ribers

By Bonnie Wilson
As we traveled down the
highway to our trailhead to-
day there Was a bit of rain
falling, then suddenly lots of
rain. I was beginning to
think today may not have
been a good day to ride.
However as we pulled into
the trailhead it stopped rain-
ing. I thought this was a
here's your si gn" deal that
I was looking for. We un-
loaded our boys, and after a
few hellos we headed out on
our trail.

Our ride today was at
Pruitt, which is located in
Dunnellon. It's a great place
to ride. Phil Parent, my hus-
band Dave and I were the
three amigos for this ven-
ture. Itandy and Fay Beasley
were also there with their
beautiful Paso's and ready
to ride. We three amigos
were on Quarter horses and
this time we actually took
the high road, and left the
Beasley's to the low road'

We had a wonderful ride.
The thing I really like about
Pruitt is that they have
these extraordinary hms
that you can climb. It's good
for your horses. I rode Bud-
dy today and we had an ex-
cellent ride. He was very
willing and trusting of me.
He had not seen these hills
before and yet he did an
amazing job. Through tight
turns that were more like a
jungle than a forest, he
moved obediently with ease.
Palmetto were plentiful and
everywhere. I do enjoy the
different levels of paths to
take at Pruitt. If you prefer
you can ride thru the forest
at the bottom and go that
way with no hUs to climb-
Just the crunch of fallen


s u dto su on

fallen logs and tight trails to
maneuver around and down.
AND spider webs to avoid. I
hate spiders. In the forest
there are hug ones, almost
as big as your hand. PhU
was our fearless leader on
our hilltop trail. Think he
hates spiders as much as I
do. I did hear him yell a few
times as he knocked down a
few.webs that were inhabit-
ed. Fortunately none of
those creepy crawly things
traveled with'us or on us.
UGH!

We traveled all the way
through our scenic hilltop
plateau and were heading
back down the hill when the
thunder began to roll, and
the clouds became darker-
Oh my! Did you know the
forest gets really dark with
no sunshine pepping
through? We were in such a
hurry to ride this morning
that I forgot to put our sad-
dle horn bags on our horses.
Those bags just happen to
contain our rain ponchos-
Opps can't go back now. It
did rain and we did get wet,
however it did not stop us
from the fun we were hav-
ing. It was incredible. We
had more fun than a barrel
of monkeys...wet monkeys
at that!

Later back at the trailhead
we gathered together and
had lunch and discussed our
trail ride. It was a good day
after all. It did not rain on
our parade. Well, maybe it
did but it certainly did not
stop us fkom a great trail-
ride. If you love trail riding,
and good company come on
out and join us. Check us
out on the web at www.Qa-
horse.com/1che. Until next
time, happy trails to you.

attention. some karate
movies make it look like
children can beat up an
adult, but in reality, an adult
will always win. Kids need
to know how it happens in
real life and it needs to be
practiced.








Rule #3
"Stay Back" Keep your
Distance
we teach children that when
they are away from their
parents they need to keep a
safe distance away from
strangers. How far is that? If
a stranger is close enough to
talk to you, he is too close.
Do not allow a stranger to
talk to you. A person may
look OK on the outside but
he is sick on the inside.
Hold your hands up and yell
"Stay back!" forcefully. You
do not want anyone to get
close enough to grab you, if
someone tries to get close to
you, go back to rule #l and
run away.
There are many other safety
tips but these three are es-
sential. Adults remember, a
child may have all of these
rules memorized and can re-
peat them back to you word
for word. That doesn't mean
they will apply them. They
must be practiced over and

NOVer Give Up!

3 Rules to Keep Klds Safe from
Strangers
I have taught hundreds of
children on how to protect
themselves from danger.
Most children now days
know the answer to
"What do you do if a
stranger comes near?"
"Get away and don't
talk to them" they will
say. But, wU they ac-
tually do it? Studies
by crime against chil-
dren prevention agen-
cies show that 8 times out of
10 they will allow a stranger
to walk right up to them and
begin a conversation, even
when they know better. Will
your child? Test them.
Rave an adult friend who
your child does not know
approach your child and be-
gin a conversation while'
you are watching and hid-
den from view. You might be
swprised when the child
who just told you she would
never talk to a stranger will
begin chatting like they
have known each other for
years. .
We learn by doing so we
practice with the kids these
3 simple rules that will pro-
tect them.
Rule #1
Stay with your parents
while out shopping or
playinR
The most effective and best
of all rules. The problem is,
that is not always practical,
especially the older the
child gets. So the children
. need to know AND PRAC-
TICE the following rules un-
der various scenarios.
Rule #2
Run, and Scream loudly
*
When there is danger a
child should run away and
scream loudly Running
away is a child's best de-
fense against danger:
Screaming "Get away front
me!" will naturally get the
attention of anybody who
has ever been a parent,
grandparent, or teacher. If
they are in a store they need
to run, scream, and puU
things off the shelves myk-
