The trial of former County
Attorney Joseph Lander be-
gan Monday in Gainesville
with the presentation of the
Prosecution's case. Jeff
Wilson, one of the develop-
ers of Rivershores at Jena
subdivision, was called as a
. witness by Assistant U.S.
Attorney Greg McMahon.

Wilson testified that Lander
did not tell him that he was
* required to put up a perfor-
mance bond. Former Coun-
ty Manager Arthur Bellot
and Clei*k of Court Dana
Cannon confirmed this tes-


timony, both testifying that
1)ixie County doesn't re-
quire performance bonds.
Wilson testified that the
money was placed on es~
crow with Lander to give
purchasers "a level of com-
fort" because no infra-
structure on the site had
been built yet. Lander's at-
torney read to Wilson from
a count of the indictment
and asked if Lander had
committed the "scheme to
defraud," and Wilson an-
swered no. Testimony was .
also given about a stop work
order that was issued on

Department was able to ob-
tain information that Craw-
ford sold thb items to a ven-
dor at the Chiefland Flea
Market. Crawford was ar-
rested for Burglary and

been released from the Dix-
ie County Jail.


Suwannee's Water and Sew-
er Board got a new member
at Thursday sCounty Com-
mission meeting.
Commissioner Troy John-
son expressed his opinion
that the decision should
have beeri lip to the resi-
dents of Suwannee. he
said, "Let Suwannee vote. I
think that's the fairest
thing to do." After a brief
discussion, it became ap-
parent tha4 waiting over a
year until the next election
was not going to be reason-
able.

Four people had applied for
the post. Commissioner .
Johnson recortmlended pre-
vious water board member
James Brown, and said,
"It's a young board, like us,
and it needs some experi-

and his wife, Sinoma, are ,
active in the community
and are often seen in atten-
dance at local county meet-
ings.
Then Mark Hatch put for-
ward Talmackge Strickland,
and was seconded by Ron-
nie Edmoilds. Commission-
er Troy Johnson voted "op-
posed." Chariman Marvin
Hunt said, "I've got to vote
opposed; too, because I feel
like we have got to have
some experience in that
board." Commissioner Hig-
ginbotham was not present
at the meeting and the is-
sue was tabled until after


lunch so that he could
break the tie.
In the continued meeting,
Commissioners Hatch, Ed-
monds and Higginbotham
appointed Stripkland to the
Board;

Mr. Strickland has.a man-
ufactured home on CR 349

residence is a working hay
farm, where he declares
homestead exemption and.
receives his Dixie tax bm,

Although he has never
served on a local board, he

County Commissioners for

YOU Work for me! (Oh, and you're fired.)


byKathy McKinney


Barbara Boxer--that horrid, horrid womans--keeps popping
into my mind from that congressional hearing months ago,
demanding that a General address her as "Senator," because
she didn't like the way he politely (and correctly!) called her
"Ma'am." She, like so many of the permanent political class
who have never done anything except gorge at the public
trough, was under the impression that her status as a gov-
ernmeilt official made her equal in rank to a decorated mili-
tary officer who actually EARNED his title with blood and
sweat. It's just unbridled and inexcusable arrogance, run
totally amok.

I've been thinking about this incident on and off all day, and
trying to file it into the bigger picture. I keep asking myself
. the same questions: when did "public servants" become our
"public masters?" Where did we the people lose control over
.
the elected officials, bureaucrats, and employees who are
supposed to be working for us? At what point did it become
acceptable for someone who is paid with our tax money to
treat us like cross-legged first graders ask-
ing for a potty pass? Why should any citi-
when have we zen have to go, hat in hand, to beg a govern-
been expected ment employee for their work-product that
we are paying for? When did our "public
submissively tO servants" get the impression that they out-
nd speak with rank us? I just don't know.


hose of you who keep up with the comings
and goings here at The Advocate might think
this column is about Brandi. Although she is
leaving. I didn't fire her. (Well, not really. I
play-fire her almost every day, but she just
sticks her tongue out at me...1ike Rodney Dan-
gerfield, I get no respect.) She's moving to Jacksonville to
be closer to he.r boyfriend Tim, who seems to be a nice
enough guy She doesn't have a job there yet, so keep your
fingers crossed. Actually, Friday Was her last day, so by the
time you read this, Miss Danielle will already be firmly in
charge of Brandi's desk. Come by andsay "hey," to her if
you get a chance.

Nope, this rant was brought on by an incident with a "pub-
lic servant," (and I use the term loosely) who works...well,
let's just leave that part out of it. As your newspaper, we
have to gather just piles and piles of information to fill our
pages with stories. Sometimes, we have to
call the offices of government officials and
ask their staffs for information. We11sually Since
get a reasonable amount of cooperation, and Americans
we try not to be too annoying with our re-
Quests. to bow s
authority a
Anyhoo, today in the normal course of busi-
ness, I asked for a piece of information and awe an
instead of getting the normal friendly re- those who
spouse that I'm used to, a desk-jockey burea1;t-
crat told me "no," and then when I called'
back to ask why not, she was rude and dismis- -- Justice
sive, even hostile, and worst of all, she hung
up on me in the middle of my question. I have to admit that I
went fairly blind with pure, scarlet, seething rage. Within
twenty seconds flat, I was standing in her office, getting
ready "to go all medieval" on somebody. (I'm not real proud
of my overreaction, but there it is.) Now, I'm not going to go
into what all was said, or what all happened, but the situa-
tion got straightened out by the people over her head eventu-
^

Sure, I know there are Sunshine laws and that government
information is supposed to be public, but I can tell you, as a
member of the media, that the Sunshine Law'is a pathetic
joke. It's got more holes than a punk rocker's jeans. Try to
get some information that Big Brother doesn't want you to
have sometime when you're feeling froggy Walk a mile in
my flip flops. I double-dog dare you. .
. Had this front-office flunkie been working in the private sec-
tor, or.had she been MY secretary, she'd have packed up her
Scooby Doo lunchbox, and standing in the unemployment
line before dinner time. (Really, ask some of my former em-
ployees.yPeople who serve customers for a profit cannot af-
ford to like stich ati attitude on the payroll. It costs money
in angry or lost clients. Only the government can afford to
offend their customerss" with such disregard.


Dixie is, of course, different, in that we're
an cousins, or in-laws, or itext-dodr neigh-
bors, so politeness in all dealings is that
much more important. Almost everyone
who works for the public here seems to do


their best to be helpful and friendly..even if
they quietly stab you ill the back after you walk aw.ay It's
that small-town thing. You can't make obscene gestures in a
road-rage fit at the red light at Foodland if the driver of the
other car might be your pastor's second cousin twice re-
moved, now can you? (OK, on a non-related note, wm some-
body please email me and explain to me what "twice re-
moved" means? I never have understood that.)

I was joking with my daughter Casey the'other day that it's
a good time for her to be in school, working on her Master's
degree. I told her that the economy wasn't going to improve
in the next decade and the State would probably be the only
entity with money to hire anybody. I joked that the extra ed-
ucation would ensure her spot as one of our "government
overlords." It seemed funny at the time, but today? Not so
much. *

Like Jefferson wrote, "When the people fear their govern-
ment, there is tyranny; when the government fears the peo-
ple, there is liberty" They also say that people get the gov-
ernment they deserve; And'that you get treated the way you
demand to be treated. Perhaps it's time that we the people 2
started handing out some pink slips, and showing our priblic
employees that "you're not the boss of me."


Why no Chicago Olympics?

Imust admit that I am not disappointed in the fact that
Chicago was not chosen as the site of the 2016 Olympic
Games. Like any other city, Chicago has a lot of fine people;
however the city itself has earned a reputation as a ,
cesspool of corruption since the days of Prohibition, and in .
that respect it's not all that much better today than it was
in the heyday of Al Capone.

Chicago's political corruption has spread to a number of
major cities, glpe in no small part to an organization known
as ACORN. Att with or w thout thit littoriops band of
"community organizers," Alcago headlong been kifewil lis
a town run by a collection of thugs and corrupt politicians.
Granted, nobody's home tdwn is perfect, but image-wise, we
could have done a lot better than Chicago when seeking a
city to represent our country in international athletic com-
petition.
I don't know how much President Obama had to do with the
loss of Chicago to four othei- cities in the first round of vot-
ing by the International Olympic Committee in Copen-
hagen, Denmark. I suspect that he was motivated by the
fact that Chicago is where he first became involved in poli-
tics, and no doubt he had some favors to repay back home.
In any case, apparently going to Copenhagen and stumping
for Chicago was more important than such trivial matters
as communicating one-on-one with his commanding gener-
al in Afghanistan.

What it all comes down to is this: Did Barack Obama's PR
junket to Copenhagen help or hurt Chicago's chances?
Chicago was selected as "the nation's choice" (over Los An-
geles) in 2005, at which time Obama was an minois state
legislator and barely a blip on the nation's political radar
screen, so he obviously can't be credited with bringing the
2005 selection to his home town! But he or at least hisi loyal-
ists felt that, as President, he could weigh heavily on the
IOC's decision just by showing up, especially when accom-
panied by his wifb, Michelle, and their friend (and benefac-
tor), TV star Oprah Winfrey.
Whatever the reason, it didn't work, which leaves the field
open for speculation. As I see it, Obama and his advisors (in
both Washington and Chicago) misread their perceived as-
sessment,\as parroted by the establishment media, that he
has restored the presidency to a position of world leader-
ship and res];iect following an embarrassing eight years
with a Texas cowboy in the Whithlogse..
re
Actually, the Europeans and othh who seemed receptive to
Obama's efforts to upgrade our nation's
image abroad might not have been as ,
easily misled as our own people who
voted for him. Why apologize to people
your country restored from Nazi occu- 6
nation and protected from Soviet en- ,
encroachment? You don't say you're sorry
that the United States got involved so
that today Europe wouldn't be subject to ..
a regime run by whoever succeeded
Hitter in office. Not if you expect the
people to whom you're talking to re-
spect you or your country if they're not
convinced that you could even pass a
high school history exam.
On the other hand, you might have considered apologizing
for- agreeing to pursue meaningless negotiations with coun-
tries that support Islamic terrorism while they develop a
nuclear weapons capability And your silver tongue is in;
deed tarnished by a decision td withdraw a promised nu-
clear shield for Eastern Europe in deference to a despot
who rose from the ashes of the Soviet Union.

Unfortunately, President Obama seems to have apologized
for the things our nation should be proud of, while hoping
nobody noticed what he, personally, did wrong.

However, more than a few Eui'opeans do seem to have no-
ticed, and that doesn't seem to have done much for his im-
age or America's, let alone Chicago's chances of hosting the
2016 Olympics.

not discovered the details are
sure to fight this internatipn-
al cabal which wm include
hitherto loyal allies Japan
and the Gulf Arabs. Against
the background to these cur-
rency meetings, Sun Bigan,
China's former special envoy
. to the Middle East, has
warned there is a risk of
deepening divisions between
*China and the US over influ-
ence and oil in the Middle
East. "Bilateral quarrels and
clashes are unavoidable," he
. told the Asia and Africa Re-
view. "We cannot lower vigi-
lanpe against hostility-in the
Middle East over energy in-
terests and security"

This sounds like a dangerous
prediction of a future eco- .
nomic war between the US
and China over Middle East
, oil yet again turning the re-
. gion's conflicts into a battle
for great power supremacy
China uses more oil incre-
mentally than the US be-
cause its growth is less ener-
gy efficient. The transitional
currency in the move away
from dollars, according to.
Chinese banking sources,
may well be gold. An indica-
tion of th4 huge amounts in-
volved can be gained from
the wealth of Abu Dhabi,
Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and
Qatar who together hold an
estimated $2.1 trillion in dol-
lar reserves.

The decline of American
economic power linked to the
current global recession was
implicitly acknowledged by
the World Bank president
Robert Zoellick. "One of the
legacies of this crisis may be
a recognition of changed


economic power relations,"
he said in Istanbul ahead of
meetings this week of the
IMF and W6rld Bank. But it
is China's extraordinary new
financial power along with
past anger among oil-produc-
ing and oil-consuming na-
tions at Anierica's power to
interfere in the international
financial system which has
prompted the latest discus-
sions involving the Gulf
states.

Ever since the Bretton'
Woods agreements the ac-
cords after the Second World
1 at which bequeathed the
architecture for the modern
international financial sys-
tem America"s trading part-
ners have been left to cope
with the impact of Washing-
ton's control and, in more re-
cent years, the hegemony of
the dollar as the dominant
global reserve currency
The Chinese believe, for ex-
ample, that the Americans
persuaded Britain to stay out
of the euro in order to pre-
vent an earlier move away
from the dollar. But Chinese
banking sources say their
discussions have gone too far
to be blocked now. "The Rus-
sians will eventually bring in
the trouble to the basket of
currencies," a prominent
Hong Kong broker told The
Independent. "'the 13rits are
stuck in the middle and will
come into the huro. They
have no choice because they
won't be able to use the US
dollar."

Chinese financial sources be-
lieve President Barack Oba-
ma is too busy fixing the US


economy to concentrate on
the extraordinary implica-
tions of the transition from
the dollar in nine years' time.
The current deadline for the
currency transition is 2018.

The US discussed the trend
briefly at the G20 summit in
Pittsburgh; the Chinese Cen-
tral Bank governor and other
officials have been worrying
aloud about the dollar for
years. Their problem is that
much of their national
wealth is tied up in dollar as-
sets.

"These plans will change the
face of international finan-
cial transactions," one Chi-
nese banker said. "America
and Britain must be very
worried. You wm know how
worried by the thunder of
denials this news wm gener-
ate."

Iran announced late last
month that its foreign cur-
rency reserves would hence-
forth be held in euros rather
than dollars. Bankers re-
member, of course, what
happened to the last Middle
East oil producer to sell its
oil in euros rather than dol-
lars. A few months after Sad-
dam Hussein trumpeted his
decision, the Americans and
British invaded Iraq.

actually had no planned

our weekends, I actuallL

ball, Colman once again led the charge
as the defense made their stand and
the Bears took a 14-71ead into balft ime.
To start the third quarter, the Buffalo
kicked off as Javonta Jqnes takes the
kickoff and makes a good run. The buf.
falo made a defensive stand and the
Bears were forced to make a field goal
attempt. Zach Cassidy booted it to-
wards the g al poet, but it fell short
and the field goal was no good.

and runs for a first down. Kameron

end zone for another Bear touchdown.
21-7 Bears. After kicking off, the Buffa-
lo ran before they.caught the ball and
as a result, fumbled the football and
the Bears recovered.

Stephen Godbolf made pretty big
play but it was all for naught as penal-
ty flags went to flying (2 offsetting per-
sonal fouls). The ball was placed on the
23-yard line and Mike West took it and
ran downto the 16 yard line. The quar-
terliack keeper failed on 3rd down, but
Stephen Godbolt was able to take the
next play and run for a first down but
the Bears were unable to move it any
after that and the Buffalo took over on


downs onthe 3-yard line.
The defense pressured the Buffalo play
and the buffalo fainble in the end zone
as Zach Lashley was able to recover it
for the Bears

touchdown.
(way to go
Zach!) The
score was 28-7 -
with the Bears
heading into
the final quar
ter of play.

field and look-

the ball and took it into the end zone

With 2:371eft inthe game, the Buffalo

the Bears defense. With 1:18 on the
clock, and the Bears in possession,
Thomas Allbach carried the ball

As the game wound down to
the final seconds it seemed
that the Bears would let it
slip away; the Trojans had
the ball on the two yard line
with more than ten seconds
on the clock. As the ball was
snapped the Bear defense
held and confusion reigned
on the Trojan line and the

Regarding an accident on Highway 19, on Saturday, Septem-,
ber 26, 2009: .

An accident involving our van and a pickup truck about
5:20 made us thankful for Old Town's emergency staff. An
off-duty officer was first at the scene and unfastened the
seat belts, pried off our doors and assured us the radiator
was steammg, but not on fire. Sorry, sir, I didn't get your
name but God did. I vaguely remember two caring ladies
who stopped to help. Thank you! The ambulance brought
us beautiful Samantha Sullivan and Ira Hayes who attended
us. A big thank you to Jason Lemmerman who did so
niuch. I think he is with the fire truck. Officer W. L. Mc-
Gauley was so caring and reassuring. Last, but not least,
.
the kmd lady at Hardees who gave us drinks and let us use
their cool air.

Thank everyone in Old Town. I know I missed some names
but am so grateful. Keep up the good work and God bless.

Never Give Up!

CONFIDENCE' VS.
BULLIES

A sense of low self esteem
is something that many of
us experience. As a parent,
yoxi try to prepare your
child the best you can
every day. But what,
do you do about devel-
oping the confidence
to ask and answer
questions in school?
How about the disci-
pline to focus, concen-
trate, and learn at
their maximum potential?
What do you say to your
child who is embarrassed to
tell you about other kids
picking on him or her?
Bullying is a problem for
many children. Bullying of-
ten begins at other places
and then carries over to
school. Schools do every-
thing they car\to discourage
bullying but they, like par-
ents, can't be everywhere all
the time. The problem wU
always exist wheil you have
a bully and another child
who can be the bully's tar-
get. Lack of self esteem is
often what causes a bully to
feel he or she can pick on
that child. Having the confi-
dence to stand up to bullies
is the only way to get them
to back off. But, studies
show, having confidence to
begin with wm keep the bul-
lies from picking on your
child in the first place
So how does a child develop
,
self confidence? The same
wsy.everyone does, by
learning to be confident.
Confidence is a learned be-
havior, not inherited. That
means children, teenagers
and adults can gain confi- '
de nee.

making my own unilateral
decision (actually it passed
unanimously in our HOUSE
without collective bargain-
ing) to transport/transplant
all deciduous trees only in
the spring or fall of the
year.
HEALTH CARE: I made a
commitment to eat healthy,
exercise daily, learn more
clean middle school jokes
that make me chuckle, vol-

Now for some unbiased gen-

- evaluate your landscape

Think about adding: snap

"Honey, where did you put
my jacket?" This and other
such questions are being re-
peated these days as the
temperature has dropped
into the 50's for the first
time in months. If you get
up early enough to hear the
woods wake up, you may
even hear a sigh of
"AHHH!" from Mother Na-
ture.
I have been in a political
mood lately due to hearing
so much of it in the news
that I've actually decided to
join the campaign and
CHANGE myself. My resolu-
tions include the areas of:

plant more cedar and ju-
niper trees to filter dirt and
limerock dust!
EDUCATION CRISIS: I'm

so they have the best chance
to succeed! .
FOREIGN AID: I will add
English Ivy, 1Wexican Fire-
bush and African Violets to
my garden all without sanc-
tions or lobbying.
RECESSION ISSUE: Re-
member to plant shrubs and
bushes at least 2 feet from
the base of your house to
avoid siding or foundational
damage. If I mention any of
the problems all of us will
be in DEPRESSION.
WAR on TERROR: I.get so
mad about how fast weeds
grow, I've decided to invest
in a pre-emergent com- .
pound to stop them before
they grow up, propagate and

Our members get asked that
question quite often. Anoth-
er common question is "Can
you eat them?"
If you come out to "Pelican
Bay Island" this weekend,
you'll find out what kot are
and once you see their
graceful beauty, we don't
think you would want to eat

Maybe you've heard of koi.
They can be one of the
world's most expensive pets*
In some of the large koi
shows around the countrM
it's not uncommon to see
some valued at $20,000! Most
koi don't cost nearly that
much. The average koi sells
for $25 to $100, but they are
just as beautiful as their ex-
pensive cousins. Some look
like wefe crafted from gold
or silver. On some, the scales
sparkle like diamonds. The
Japanese have called koi
"living jewels."
But the long whiskers on
their faces give their pedi~
gree away. They're actually
just really nice-looking carp.
Even experts aren't exactly
sure how koi got started.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in
Florida has set a cutoff date of October 30, 2009, to submit applications for several voluntary
conservation programs that may help eligible participants pay for conservation practices to
prevent soil erosion, improve water quality, restore wetlands and provide habitat for wildlife.
The Eryvironmental Quality Incentives Program (EQlP) is, a conservation program that
provides financial and technical assistance to farmers and ranchers who face threats to soft,
water, air, and related natural resources on their land. Through EQIP, NRCS develops contracts
with agricultural producers to voluntarily implement conservation practices to address
environmental natural resource problems. Persons engaged in Livestock or agricultural
production and owners of non-industrial private forestland are eligible for the progYam.
Eligible land includes cropland, rangeland, pastureland, private non-industrial forestland, and
other farm or ranch lands.

The Grassiand Reserve Program (GRP) is a program for landowners and operators to
