The Bears wasted no time in scoring with
Stephen Godbolt.opening the door first in the
opening minutes of the first quarter. Cassidy
kicked the extra point for a seven to 0 lead. The
Flash scored right bick at the Bears, showing
them that they were not going to let their Home-
coming be spoiled, but failed in the extra point at-
tempt.


Godbolt scored again on a 61-yard run and Cas-
sidy kicked the extra point keeping the Bears
ahead. With 30 seconds remaining in the first
quarter, Wade Wilkerson took a hand-off from
Keen, scooting in for six points aild Cassidy
added PAT for a Bear lead 21 to 6.

The Dixie County Bears brought home the Dis-
trict Championship lasfFriday.night when they
defeated the Hilliard Red Flash 43 to 12 in
Hilliard. "I am very proud tonight," said Coach
Brent Wilkerson. He added "This is been a long
six years since our last district title and we did a
good job earning it."


is like claiming that people
don't appreciate the differ-
ence between fresh straw-
berries and frozen ones.
. "It's just such a false qtate,
ment," Hastings says of the
suggestion that processed
oysters can replace fresh
ones. "And it's a false as-
sumption that the Gulf oys-
ter business can survive
with such harsh new regu-
lations," he adds. Shellfish
growers in other regions
are worried that the Gulf
Oyster ban could set the
stage for oppressive rules
all around the country
"A requirement to process
oysters flies in the face of
the resurgence of raw oys-
ter bars across the country,
and the growing natural
"slow" foods movement,"
says Robin Downey, execu-
tive director of the Pacific
Coast Shellfish Growers, As-
sociation. "Growers are
proud of the high quality;
wholesome, fresh shellfish
they provide to their cus-
tomers. Taking the choice to
. eat raw oysters away from
them is preposterous."
The East Coast shellfish
community expressed con-
cern, too.
See OYSTERS, page 7


Uncle Sam's after yoxir oys-
ters on the half-shell: an un-
, precedented proposal toban
raw Gulf Coast oysters, de-
. eloped unilaterally by the
U.S. Food and I)rug Admip-
istration, will threaten
thousands of jobs and crush
a clean, sustainable fishery,
according to food lovers,
fishermen and commumty
leaders. The ban would pro-
hibit raw oysters
from being sold
during warm
months, when the
bacteria vibrio
vulmficus is most
prevalent. Infec-
tion from the bac-
teria is fatal about
half the time, and
kBs around 15 .
people a year.
On Saturday, Oct. 17 the
FDA made a surprise an-
nouncement at a meeting of
shellfish regulators and
industry, telling them that
the agency plans to ban the
sale of live, in-the-shell Gulf
Coast oysters for as much
as 8 months every year. The
proposed ban was developed
without public input and
FDA officials admit they
have not analyzed the eco-
nomic impact. Officials
have also suggested that
new restrictions may be in
the works for West Coast


and East Coast shellfish.
"This would cost us thou-
sands of jobs and tens of
minions of dollars if we
were unable to sell our
oysters as wi do today The
new FDA direction makes
no sense Louisiana is stB
struggling to recover from
Hurricane Katrina," said Al
Sunseri of P & J Oyster Co.
in New Orleans.
Process like
Irrigation or
quick freezing
would be re-
quired to kill
bacteria. FDA
officials sug-
gested that con-
sumers of live
half-shell oys-
ters will vyE-
ingly switch to frozen or *
processed versions of the
traditional Gulf Coast food,
.but that's absurd, according
' to restauranthwner Chris
Hastings.
.
"I'm not buying a frozen or
pasteurized oyster," says
Hastings, owner of the Hot
and Hot Fish Chib in
Birmingham, Alabama, a
nationally recognized
restaurant specializing in
fresh, regional food. Hast-
ings says FDA's belief that
consumers will simply
switch to processed oysters

Every Week without Fail, Since July 1, 1921


I'm obviously working too much. I'm seeing things. I
slammed shut my MacBook, and without turning off the
lights, locked the front door and crossed the street into the
courthouse parking lot. I jumped into my truck and fled
home. Yes, I fled. From nothing. It feels totally ridiculous
now, and I berated myself all the way home for my cow-
ardice. I just need some more sleep. I haven't been sleeping
well. Heck, I never sleep well. I'm letting the insomnia get
to me. That's what it is.
*
The kids were spending the night with my sister, so I nuked
myself a Stouffer's lasagna and sat down to watch some
BookTV on CSPAN. I must be hitting that middle-age thing,
because I dozed off after I finished the lasagna. (Or maybe
CSPAN is just really boring.) I awoke with something of a
start, thinking that one of the cats had licked my foot. You
know that rough, cat-tongue feeling? I sort of kicked at it,
half-asleep, and then realized that the cats were all outside.
I opened my eyes. I wish I hadn't. Oh my God, I wish I
hadn't. I started making deals with God. I will be very, very
good if I just close my eyes and I didn't see what I thought I
saw. I closed my eyes. I opened the
witching time of night, right one, just a peek. There it...no,
she was.


by Kathy McKinney
As I've probably mentioned before, I ustially
write these things on Sunday morning, some-
time between my second cup of coffee and the
end of Meet The Press. It's almost midnight on Saturday
night and I'm already writing for you this week; I'm afraid I
won't ever be able to finish otherwise.

It all started a few days ago. I got a tip via email on an old
story, that the body of a young woman was found out on
Shared Island by a guy chasing his wayward hunting dog.
He found her there, half- buried in the sand under one of
those driftwood trees that usually serve as scenery on the
beach. An old, old story So old that nobody remembered
who she was or what had happened to her. Just that she was
found, nameless and likely to remain so, because nobody
recognized her, and she wasn't from around here. The story
came and went so quickly thdt I was only able to find a brief
mention of it in the GainesvBe Sun, just a date, location,
and that there had been an unexplained death, nothing
more.

I tried to do a little digging and talked to "Tis now the ve
some people who had lived out there back
then. Like always in Dixie, nobody was When church
willing to talk about something so serious
and nobody wanted to go on the record. The
only pel son who would talk to me was a
man who had been coming in from a day of
fishing when her body had been found.
Other than saying that she appeared to '
have beeri there for some time, and that she was young, with
brownish hair, he didn't know much. I was coming up emp-
ty I walked out to where she had been found; nothing out .
there now but empty beer cans and fiddler crabs....at least
that's what I thought. I decided to let it go and to go back to'
working on more recent stories. Who cares about some- .
thing that happened to somebody from somewhere else, so
long ago? I had more productive, more interesting stories to
chase.

I was sitting at my desk in The Advocate, alone, because
Danielle doesn't work on Saturday, but I had to catch up on
some paperwork. It was starting to get to that time of
evening where it's not quite dark, but you need to have the
lights on to see. I had the front door locked like I always do
when working alone and was at my desk, with just my lamp
on, when I first felt it behind me. It was sort of a draft, but
the building is almost 100 years old and has it's own person-
ality. It makes sounds, it has drafts, it creaks. Nothing to
worry about. I told myself that, but I felt the little hairs on
the back of any neck start to prickle and fought down the
arge to flee quickly out of the room. I was being silly I
went back to work on my MacBook, sorting through e-mails.

Somewhere between the obligatory "You've come into a
Nigerian inheritance" email and the one offering to in-
crease my romantic performance I saw it. There, reflected
in the screen of my computer, as if she was standing direct-
ly behind. me. My heart started pounding so hard that I
could feel it in my ears. I whipped my head around but there
was nobody there. Hooked back at the screen. There was
something there. No, someone. Someone with straggly
brown hair, staring at me with hollow, accusing dead eyes.


She stood over me, covered in sand, .
staring at me with those shadowed
dark eyes. Her hair was stiff and
dank with salt water and sand. Fid-
. dler crabs crawled and picked at her
skin. Her clothes were? shredded,


ripped and stinking with what looked like years of seaweed
and gunk. That's what I had felt on my foot, her sand-cov-
ered, tattered blue jeans brushing up against me as she
stood there. The air was frigid. I stifled a scream and levi-
tated off the couch in a panic. I ran into the kitchen, flip-
ping on every light in the house all the way I looked back
into the living room, but there was nothing there.

I started to freak out. I picked up my computer and logged
onto Facebook, just for some sort of human comiection.
The glow of the laptop is reassuriilg, somehow. Surely in a
world with computers and air conditioning, silly old myths
like ghosts and goblins can't exist...and yet, Heave all the
lights on, just in case. I'm midway through reading Mary
Shehane's recipe for deep-fried Mars bars, trying to slow the
frantic pounding of my blood in my ears, when I notice the
chill returning. It's niuch closer this time. And much colder.

There she is, behind me again. I can see the reflection of her
ghoulish, gray face reflected in the mirror over the fire-
place. (I've apparently gone completely over the edge, be-
caush I find-this reassuring somehow. At least she's not a
vampire, with no reflection at all.) "What do you WANT??" I
screech, frantically trying to get away, to get back to some
semblance of reality and sanity She just stands, and stares
at me accilsingly. I understand then, that she's angry that I
didn't keep digging. That I didn't find out who she was,
That I neglected herstory. Her eyes scream for blood and re-
venge. It's so cold! I close my eyes, but she's still there. I can
feel her now. I'm going to make a run for the truck and try to
make it to town. I don't know if she'll let me go. I'm saving
this on my laptop, so that somebody wm know what hap-
pened to me. If I don't make it, tell my kids...
Exppy HaUoween!

All of us old fogies on Social Security have been notified
that we will not be getting a cost of living increase for 2010.
Why? Because "consumer prices have actually declined in
the last 12 months."

Oh, really? And where was this information obtained? In
some.third world country where the medium of exchange is
heroin or maybe underage girls in training to become mem-
bers of the world's oldest profession? Another planet, per-
haps? I dolit know about you, but I haven't noticed stuff
getting cheaper, or even prices remaining stable, over the
past year.

Let's start with gasoline, since this is a commodity that af-.
fects most of us to one extent or another. It was just about
this time last year when the $4,00-plus a gallon price took a
nose dive, bottoming out at just over a buck-and-a-half a
gallon, and it stayed under two dollars a gallon until the fol-
lowing May Since then, it has fluctuated a bit, but the stuff
still costs roughly a dollar a gallon more than it did at this
time last year, and guess what? It's going up. .

Let's say you live in Cross City and drive to Gainesvue to
work five days a week. That's roughly a 100 mile round trip.
Let's say your jalopy gets 25 miles to the gg1lon. With a gal-
lon of gasoline costing a dollar more than it did at this time
last year, it's costing you an extra 20 bucks a week just to
keep your job..All right, so you feel lucky just to have a job
with the unemployment rate nearing 10% and rising, but
you get the idea..

And just because your Social Security check won't grow
doesn't meah it will stay the same, at least not if you have
been listening to the rumor mill. Supposedly, Part B will in-
crease to $105.00 next year. However, after scrutinizing the
paperwork I received from Social Security, Medicare Part B
will remain at $96.40 per month, the same as this year, when
it remained at that figure from the previous year despite a
modest cost of living increase. Thus, our COA benefit actu-
ally wasn't wiped out by a Part B increase, as it has been in
several past years.

Personally, I wouldn't get too comfortable.about this. A sig-
nificant increase in the Part B deduction could be coming
our way in another 14 months, and who knows what to ex-
ect after that?

Of course, whatever happens should not be a problem for
Social Security recipients who are in this country illegally.
They don't need to participate in Part B, because they don't
pay their medical bills anyway.

But for the rest of us, this could be a problem. I've been
Part B eligible for ten years, and when I first got signed up,
it was about 48 bucks a month. So, we're looking at a 100 %
increase between then and now. And we can expect more in-
creases down the road if we get nationalized health care,
since the Obama administration's plan is to pay for this
boondoggle with "savings" in the cost of Social
Security/Medicare benefits

Inflation-wise, have you noticed that the price of gold is go-
ing up like a helium balloon? (I'm talking about the TV
commercials; who can afford to buy the stuff ?) Does this
mean that gold is worth more, or that the dollar is worth
less? I realize that the price of gold fluctuatera lot more
than those peddling it would have us believe; but as one
schooled in Redneck Economics, it looks to me like the trea-
sured yellov\r metal is costing more because the value of the
printing press product is worth progressively less.

Mr Prater:

You are so right! I haven't noticed my grocery or light bill
going down any, either We seem to be getting closer to
Weimer Republic-type days of taking a tcheelbarrow full of
money to the store to buy a loaf of bread. But hey, you
shouldn't be surprised, it'sjust that "Chicago Way." Obama
knows you seniors didn't vote for him, and won't vote for him
in 2012. So you get squat, and your money goes to pay off the
people who WILL vote for him: illegal aliens, union fatcats, .
welfare queens, and college professors. --Ed

Tony Johns was NOT hired as
an operator. He was hired for
the General Manager's position
butr gtn hTso dte s er
license. There was nothing in
writing or a contract. Mr. Johns
has gotten his Class D1icense,
It takes 2080 in plant hours with
the lead Class C operator pre-
sent, the WT course has to be
completed and a state test taken
t ah acs p ec ste{e 80
hours and is taking the course
for his Class C. The first year
lie went to work he had to learn


the job, oversee installation of
first phrase distribution lines
(SWIG), grinder pump problems
and the building of the new wa-
ter plant, getting it on line and
getting the old water plant off
line.
I think what Mr. O'Quinn was
referring to in his statement
that "the manager is doing a
good job operating the facility"
is the entire facility as the Gen-
eral Manager.
-
As General Manager, Mr. Johns
is responsible for the entire fa-
cility, that is to see that the day-
to- day operations of the water
& sewer plants are done, the of-
fice & personnel, maintenance
personnel and working with the
n &4 bDte e r
the remaining old lines in
Suwannee. He also attends
County Commission meetings
and gives reports. How many
hours are there in a day?
.
You are right; FDEP would not
put this community or your
health at RISK. SW&S staff is in
constant contact with them.
All of the required water sam-
ples are taken and SW&S is in
compliance with federal stan-
dards. SW&S is one of the few
water treatment plants that are
in compliance in the state of
at r s e tn i di -
tion of the truth is costing
SW&S (the community) money
in attorney fee's and extra labor.
I think that the venomous lies
that are being told about the form
mer SW&S boards are personal
n m r e ne nues to
fulf ill campaign promises that
were made by County Commis-
sioners. A case in point is the


newest SW&SB member fifteen
minutes after being sworn in
makes a motion to fire the
SW&S attorney Is that a "hatch-
et job" or what? The DCC has
appointed a five-member board
now they need to let them make
the decisions for SW&S. If they
(DCC) think that no one is pay-
ing attention they are wrong. It
is a shame that so much energy
is directed toward evil instead
of good things forte communi-
ty of Suwannee. There were fal-
sified pictures taken at the sew-
er lift station and false state-
ments made to the board. This
certainly increases cost because
when people make false allega-
tions they have to be defended.
There are no secrets at SW&S
and there is no money missing
a Ta ce hmeetetstaacPuLts
for all the ftmds. The only crisis
this community is in is the lies
that are being told for their own
satisfaction.
The God I know will not bless
those that hurt and corrupt oth-
ers for personal satisfaction and
promises. Please, people, stop
and think about what you are
doing to your neighbors and the
community you live in.
Sincerely, -
Carolyn Johnson

After my inspection of the water

RETAIL GASOLINE PRICES SPlKE AS NYMEX CRUDE 01L CLOSES
WEEK ABOVE $80 PER BARREL

Despite weak consumer demand and ample fuel supplies, crude oil
on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) posted its highest
weekly closing price of 2009, $80.50 per barrel, pushing up wholesale
and retail fuel prices. The national average price of gasoline m-
creased by 12 cents per gallon in the past week. The average price of
gasoline in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee increased by 17, 16, and
13 cents per gallon respectively during the.same p.eriod.
The sustained rally for crude oil is driven by a weak U.S. dollar that's
drawing investors to commodities and crude oil, but, as Peter Beutel,
an analyst at Cameroli Hanover noted, "At some point the bubble has
to burst."
,,
"Gasoline prices are stm less than they were a year ago at this time,
said Gregg Laskoski, inanaging director, public relations, AAA Auto
Club South. "Brit, unless we see a change of direction for the dollar,
the current run-up for oil miglit last longer than many economists
and pil analysts expect." . ,

ishing their season posting
an impressive five and one
record. The Rangers started
their scoring in the first
quarter with James Bowers
and Shaquiale Mitchum
both scoring to put the
Rangers ahead by 16 by the
end.of the first quarter. Just
before the half, Bowers ran
in a thirty-five yard touch-
down and made the conver-

Rangers out in front 24 to o
at the half.


The Rangers came back in
during the second half with
Duke Dawson scoring on a
thirty yard run and with the
conversion the Rangers are
unreachable 32 to 0. The
Devils finally post six points
at the close of the third, but
the Rangers promptly an-
swered back when Bowers
smoked down field fifty-five
yards into the end zone for a
TD. Dawson as quarterback
passed to Frankie Baker for
a conversion completion,
and the Rangers lead 40 to

more before the game is

High School JV team com-
pleted their football season
4-1, The high school volley-
ball teams (JV and Varsity)
combined for a total of ten
wins and sixteen losses. Our
Varsity Football record is
currently 6-1, with a possible
state playoff game at this
point. Also the Dixie County
Marching Band has already
excelled in 2 competitions
this year, and looking for-
ward to their next competi-
tive show in November. As
we all know, our students
can compete both in academ-
ic and athletics with stu-
dents throughout Florida. I
believe that team work and
school spirit are very impor-
tant to our students.

We.are in the process of an
Organization and Manage-
ment Study within Dixie
District Schools. I have re-
quested that the Florida As-
sociation of District School
Superintendents conduct
this study to develop a cli-
mate survey of our school
.
district. All employees have
completed a written survey
and a team of professional .
educators wU be visiting
.
our district November 16-20
to interview faculty, stu-
dents, and staff. This will
give our district suggestions
on how to better organize
our staff and schools.

I would like to thank every-
one who visited me in my
satellite office at Old Town
Elementary School on Octo-
ber 6th. I wB be at the Salt
.
Creek Restaurant m Suwan-
nee on October 29th at 12:00
p.m. My location in Jena
will be at casey's Cove Con-
venience Store on November
3rd at 11:00 a.m. I wm meet
with Horseshoe residents on
November 9th at 12:00 p.m.
in the Lily Creek General
Store. My goal is for these to
be more convenient loca-
tions for our residents in the
Outlying areas to cortimulti-
CRie With the Superinten-
dent of Schools.

In addition to the above
dates, I hope to see many of
you at our Veteran's Day
Programs. Our schools will
honor veterans on Novem-
ber 11 with activities
throughout the day. The
time and location wn be
posted on our website. I
would like to personally say
"Thank You" to our veterans
for the sacrifice you made
for our country and if
weren't for your service, we
would not have the freedoms
in this land we have today
For current Dixie District
Schools information, visit

dents, parents, and the com-
munity.

STRAIGHT TALK
By DIxie District School
Superintendent Mark Hains

October has been a very
busy month m our school
system. Our children are
learning m the classroom
and participating in after
school extra curricular ac-
tivities. Faculty and staff
are progressmg through in-
service training at all levels.
FCAT Preparation is in full
swing as our teachers and
students are working hard to
prepare for this state man-
dated test. Also, FCAT re-
takes and the PLAN Test for
10th graders were adminis-
tered last week and the CPT
(College Placement Test)
was administered two weeks
ago to high school students.

This month, we celebrated
School Food Service Week. I
Worked in the serving line
alOngSide cafeteria staff at
all four schools during this
time. I realize what a
tremendous staff we have in
food service and have grown
to respect and admire these
dedicated employees. Mrs.
Linda Fowler and her entire
staff are to be commended
fOr their service to our stu-
dents.

Last week was National
School Bus Safety Week.
Safety is my number one
concern, so this was an ideal
time for me to join in on this
national campaign. I got to
ride bus #28 on the Monday
afternoon route and enjoyed
interacting with the driver
and students. Our bus dri-
vers have an awesome re-
sponsibility and I appreciate
Mr. P.J. Hope and all of his
staff very much. National
statistics show that a stu-
dent is nine times safer on a
school bus traveling to and
from school than in a private
vehicle *


To promote the protection
and safety of our children,
the Eddie Eagle Program
wn be presented to all of
our students in K-2 grades
on November 4th. This is a
gun safety program, spon-
sored by the NRA which pro-
motes accident prevention,
ensuring that children stay
safe should they encounter a
guh. This program will be
presented through a com-
bined effort between the Dix-
ie County and Levy County
Sheriffs Offices just prior to
the beginning of hunting
season in our area. .

All of our Dixie County
School sports programs are
amid and at the completion
Of SUCCeSsful seasons. Ruth
Rains Middle School football
team finished the season
with an impressive 5-1
record, and the volleyball
team finished well, with an
8-4 reCOrd. Dixie County

in the spring of 2011.
"The FI)A proposal is scien-

such thing as zero-risk in

ria, Vibrio almficus, can be
deadly for people with pre-
existing medical conditions,
such as liver damage caused
by chronic alcohol abuse.
But virtually none of the
Vibrio vulnificus cases on
record have hurt healthy
people, and many
questioned why the FDA is


what's next? A ban on raw
clams? Peanuts? Fresh fruit
and vegetables?
Under pressure from shell-
fish regulators, harvesters,
and dealers, the FDA has
tentatively agreed to
examine the economic im-
pact of the proposed ban,
and has also agreed to a col-
laborative meeting in the


FDA crusade, and that pub-
lic health rules are
supposed to target the
biggest problems, not the
smallest ones.
a
With a federal deficit of
over 9 trillion dollars, does
it make sense to go after the
industry that causes 1/10 of
a percent of all food illness-
es, or focus on the 99.9 ,,
Cecoesnt okf the problem?
In a letter to Dr. Margaret
Ha u amirses ex

Boyd urged the FDA to re-
tract any mandatory ac-
tions that would prohibit
oyster harvesting in the
Gulf during the months of
May through November.
"North Florida's oyster in-
dustry is an economic en-
gine for our coastal com-
munities, and this new.
regulation would place an
undue burden on an indus-
try that has worked very
hard over the years and been
successful at reducing possi-
ble infections," said Con-
gressman Boyd. "The FDA
has provided no justification
as to why they would impose
this new regulation on shell-
fish farmers, and little con-
sideration seems to be given
to the impact that this would
have on the industry and the
citizens trying to earn a liv-
ing." ,
Boyd concluded, "The liveli-
hood of oyster farmers de-
pend on their ability to
quickly fish, farm, process,
and distribute their product
in a safe, efficient, and reli-
able.manner the same way
they've been doing for over a
hundred years. I wU be
working with the FDA to rec-
tify this issue for the benefit
of our oyster industry and
coastal communities."


From OYSTERS, pg 1
Bob Rheault, executive di-
rector of the East Coast
Shellfish Growers Associa-
tion, says it's clear that reg-
ulation of his region is like-
ly not far behind. "I am con-
cerned that the FDA had
chosen to disregard decades
of cooperation between state
managers and the FDA,"
Rheault says.
"FDA openly acknowledges
that even this economically
ipp mg regulation will not
one has to ask "What's next?"
On the Gulf Coast, oysters
are the economic corner-
stone for many small towns,
employing thousands of in-
dividual oyster fishers and
plant workers and supplying a
network of oyster bars and
restaurants throughout the
region. Shutting down for 8
months would be a disaster,
says Leo "Chipper" McDer-
mott, mayor of Pass Christ-
ian, Mississippi. The oyster
industry "is vital to the Qulf
Coast area," he says, adding
that a ban "wn have a dev-
astating effect" on the
coastal economy "I wish
they would come down here
and look at the real
economic impact," McDer-
mott says of FDA officials.
With unemployment already
near 10 percent nationally,
the proposed ban has many
baffled and angry "This
could be the end of our way
of life," says Tommy Ward of
Buddy Ward and Sons
Seafood in Apalachicola,
Florida. "It would bankrupt
our town," adds Anita
Grove, director of the .
Apalachicola Bay Chamber
of Commerce.

vulnificus bacteria that the
oyster ban is supposed to
address is responsible for
only 1/10 of 1 percent of
food-related deaths (about 15
per year are traced to Gulf
Coast states) and an even
smaller' percentage of E-
ness, according to CDC esti-
mates. In other words, 99.9
percent of illnesses occur in
other foods, but FDA wants
to ban raw oysters. The Vib-
rio bacteria exist in salt
waters around the world.

Shellfish lovers say they
know traditional raw oysters
aren't for everyone. Some
people turn up their
noses at the very thought,
just like some people choose
not to eat meat, wild mush-
rooms, sushi, raw eggs or
chicken. But fishermen and

FDA can ban raw oysters,

Lower Suwannee National Wildlife

Et efug e Nature Walks

. The first Monday of every month there is a nature walk on
the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge. The next one
will be on Monday, November 2, at 9AM. This Monday we
will meet in Dixie and explore the Dixie County Mainline.
This road that winds through many different habitats offers
lots of possibilities for birds and animals. Although on any
one trip one may not see anything, at various times I have
seen otters, Barred Owls & Rusty Blackbirds. The Rusty
Blackbirds look a lot like Redwing Blackbirds but without the
red wing patch. They are also somewhat rusty in color, espe-
cially in their winter plumage.

Spending time outside in an environment away from traffic
and everyday concerns is a worthwhile and uplifting experi-
ence. To see and enjoy the cypress swamp, the upland pine
habitat reminds us of the infinite variety in this world. I
hope you will join me on November the 2nd. We will meet at
the fire station on 349 which is almost to the town of Suwan.
nee. In order to make sure that I wait for you if you are a lit-
he late, please RSVP by calling me, Joan Stephens, at 352-463-
1095. Looking forward to seeing you then!

Gorgeous Fall Day for the
Cleanup
A little rain in the early morning may.have scared
away a few volunteers; but for those who came-and
volunteered, it was a beautiful c ool, breezy fall day
and perfect for a cleailup.
Mary and Julius Cooey cleaned the river from
Cooey's1sland down to the bridge and John and .
Peggy Glass cleaned the river from their house
south. Both couples said it was not'as dirty as
years past. Maybe we are making a differehee?
Gail and 13ob Bartlett cleaned Riverside Drive from
Roy's Restaurant to the park while Carol Loose and
Crisis Mason cleaned from Tri County Electric to
the park. Carol is the Postmaster in Steinhatchee.
William Salmon, the truck carrier for the mail
route and not a resident of Jena or Steinhatchee,
took his Saturday to help us. Another weekender,
Jane Feber, was a one man cleaning machine! She
singlehandedly collected almost as much as all the
Steinhatchee School kids combined! She is a re-
