Bears Shut out Indians 42-0


by John Kelley

"It's great any we can
beat CNeand...
especially 42 to notlngl"

Coach Brett Wilkerson Dixie
County Bears

The District Champion Dix-
ie County Bears added an-
other page in a near-perfect
season when they shut out
the cross-river rivals from
Chiefland last Friday at
Bruce Boyette Field.

The Indians walked into a
Bear ambush lead by Quar-
terback Kameron Keen, who
waited until the Bears' sec-
ond possession, which was
set up from a pass intercep-
tion by Brett Ward. Keen
then unleashed Mike West
for a kick jog into the end
zone for the first of many
points for the Bears.

The 7-11 combo (not a Big
gulp and a hot dog), but Cas-
sidy and Colson teamed up
for the extra point.

See BEARS, page 4.


Indians bit off more than they could chew with this Kameron sandwich


Wreck on US 19


There was a two-car accident on US 19 in front of the Old
Town Car Wash on Tuesday afternoon at 3:00.

A black pickup truck and a DishTV van collided, causing
some road blockage temporarily No serious injuries were
reported. An investigation on the incident is pending.



Lion's Club starts new talk series


County Judge, Fred
Koberlein, kicked off
a series of talks from
the Dixie County Con-
stitutibnal Officers at
the Cross City Lion's
Club Tuesday Judge
Koberlein is the cur-
rent President of the
local Lion's Club. "We
want to do more than
just meet." he said.
"We have set aside the
first meeting each month
for business and charity
Work; the second meeting
will be various programs."

Judge Koberlein decided to
start the programs with
our local government rep-
resentatives. "We have in-
vited each County Constitu-
tional Officer to Speak to
us." Each speaker will be
given a suggested outline
which includes points like:

*According to law my job is
...; but really, my job is ...
*I am not responsible for
the following even though

*I do the following, but

*The most memorable thing
that has happened on my
job in the recent past is ..."

The County Constitutional
Officers are: Clerk of
Courts, County Judge,
Property Appraiser, Sheriff,
Supervisor of Elections
and Tax Collector. "If the
programs are successful
our members may ask addi-
tional representatives of
the county, school, and city
governments to come and
have lunch with us."

The speakers currently
scheduled for November
and December are our
Sheriff Dewey Hatcher and

Cannon.


Not one darned drop
Suwannee River may be on the chopping block
if Senate Committee appoints "Florida water czar"


The Florida Senate Commit-
tee on Environmental
Preservation and Conserva-
tion met Tuesday to discuss
the fate of Florida's rivers,
including Dixie's own
Suwannee River.

The Committee packet for
the meeting contains some
troubling recommendations
for residents of North Cen-
tral Florida who protested
any shipment of the Suwan-
nee's water to South Florida
six years ago. A popular
sign at the crowded
Chiefland meeting in 2003
said, "Not one damned
drop!" Residents may have
to pull those signs back out
of the closet if the Environ-
mental Committee and the
non-profit business group
"The Council of 100" follow
through on recommenda-
tions that would eliminate
the "local sources first" law.
This law requires that utili-
ties are required to use clos-
est sources to them before
attempting to import re-
sources from other areas.

The Committee recommen-
dation reads "the 'local


sources first' policy should
be reviewed. Successes and
failures of the policy should
be examined and evaluated
to identify inefficiencies and
possible alternative solu-
tions if warranted. The im-
pact to both economic
growth and environmental
protection also needs assess-
ment."

The Committee seeks to es-
tablish a central statewide
regulatory commission or "a
state water czar" to "oversee
Florida's water resources
and supply development."
The Council of 100 says in
its policy statement on wa-
ter that the "local sources
first" policy is flawed be-
cause it lets "districts and
localities think they 'own
their water.'"

The Committee report basi-
cally tells water-rich north
Florida to get ready for the
pipelines, saying, "The peo-
ple of Florida own the water
collectively, irrespective of
regional jurisdiction, and a
statewide body should gov-
ern Flofida's water supply
accordingly"

A warning from an old folk song?

"Oysters, oh oysters, oh oysters said she,
I've got the finest oysters that ever you did see;
I sells 'emfera penny, but I'll give 'em to yafree,
Cause I can see you're a lover of oysters. "
Old English folk ballad

As you perhaps read last week, the federal government has
decided that we shouldn't eat raw oysters harvested in the
Gulf coastal waters during all but the four coldest months
of the year. They might as well have made that for all 12
months as far'as the oyster growing and harvesting indus-
tries are concerned, because they can't make it if they're
shut down for two-thirds of the year.

There was a time when the conventional wisdom was that
we shouldn't eat oysters in months having no "R" in their
names. That meant May, June, July and August, traditional-
ly our warmest months, the idea being that oysters were
safer to eat if they were harvested in cooler weather.
Frankly, I can't imagine that an oyster obtained on Septem-
ber first, having grown to maturity in the warm summer
waters, would be preferable in that respect to one harvested
on May first, after maturing in the cooler winter and spring
waters. In any case, the problem was solved with modern
refrigeration (a free enterprise concept) and without the
federal government even getting involved. And since then,
we have been able to enjoy raw oysters year-round.

Now, however, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
has decided (as of October 17th) that a strain of bacteria
known as Vibrio vulnificus constitutes a threat serious
enough to shut down a major food industry This bacterial
strain reportedly sickens about 30 people a year. More peo-
ple than that go to emergency rooms as a result of compli-
cations from ingrown toenails! Alligators bite (and occa-
sionally kill) more than 30 people a year, and they're pro-
tected by law except for a 2 % month season with a very lim-
ited number of hunting permits issued.

Vibrio vulnificus mainly affects old people (the federal gov-
ernment wants to get rid of us anyway, so what's their
problem?) and those whose livers have been compromised
by years of riotous living (including many from the previ-
ous group, I suspect). Abstainers and those having yet to
draw Social Security are said to be at minimal risk of sick-
ness from this exotic bacterium. Hardly seems like a valid
case for shutting down an industry, does it?

For years, I thought eating raw oysters was disgusting, and
I still do. However, after trying one, I discovered that, prop-
erly garnished and accompanied by a cracker, they taste
great, and disgusting never really bothered me all that
much anyway.

I remember, when I was a kid, watching my father eat raw
oysters. He just swallowed them whole. He used to say, "It's
a shame you can't just buy one oyster, tie a string around it,
and enjoy it over and over again." Somehow, I don't think
Dad ever really came to fully appreciate this delicacy

What's wrong with these bureaucrats who are hung up on
depriving taxpayers of fresh, raw oysters to eat? Certainly
the risk of food poisoning is minimal compared to other
products on the market. The FDA even admits that the pro-
posed restrictions won't make much of a difference, which
no doubt means that the currently proposed measures
would be followed by progressively more stringent and far-
reaching restrictions.

Will Congress step in and tell the FDA to back off and let
the oyster industry continue to prosper and its customers
continue to enjoy this un-glamorous, but delicious product?
I would certainly hope so, however current trends worry
me.

"...Lock up your trousers and throw away the key,
Or you'll never get a taste of her oysters. "

That's how the old folk ballad ends. It seems the pretty little
oyster girl's enterprise actually involved picking people's
pockets. Sort of reminds me of the FDA's latest encroach-
ment on the free enterprise system.

1 HEARD SPEAKER PEL.66I I YEp, SHRE DRAGGED
PERSONALLY, SCOLDED THEIR HI-IM INTO THE
SENATOR FOR OPPOSIG IC
HER NEW HSALrHcnRE BILL. INNE SRNCTUM..


Dear Editor:

As you know I am an Old Time
Resident, My Grand Father came
in 1868 and my Mother's family
came to Fishbone in 1850. We
have lived all kinds of ways and
helped develop this county. We
have lived a good life. My Moth-
er was born at Line Sink. As we
speak she is 92 years old and
lives on Chavous Road on proper-
ty that has been owned by the
Chavous Family since 1905.

As I write this letter there is no
personal vendetta towards any
one. My health is my main con-
cern. Due to facts and prevailing
issues we are in a crisis!

A Water Manager was hired for
$30,000.00 per year. Previous
Board Members gave him
$5,000.00 Bonus to get his Class C
Water & Sewer License. He has
since received 2 Raises and when
the last one was given, it was
back dated when 3 members
came off the board!

Manager still does not have the
proper License and did tell the
Board at the last public meeting
that he was not sure of the
amount of hours he has. HE IS
OPERATING THE WATER
PLANT and did announce this
fact at the Public Board Meeting
during June & July, that he has
been operating the Water Plant
for over the last year! This is his
statement! It is documented on
the public video. Contrary to the
Laws of The State of Florida and
the Health and Welfare of the
community of Suwannee.

Under the current Managers Ad-
ministration the Water Rates
have increased an additional
$40.00

A new 6 Million Dollar Plant was
built and it has not been fully
completed nor has it been fully
operational as we speak.


The Spray Fields are not being
maintained properly, over the
last 7 months it has the appear-
ance to confirm that it is not be-
ing maintained as it should be.
The fields show signs of desper-
ate need to be mowed. The
sprinkler system is not operating
as they should and this is the
Manager's responsibility!

The Old Facility is not being
maintained in a proper manner,
It is evident in the amount of
Residual Material that has been
dumped around the property, It
is not designated as a Disposal
site or permitted to be a Disposal
site.

We need a Class "C" Licensed
Water & Sewer Operator. Cross
City has a qualified Operator
that is paid $ 39,291

Our Manager who does not have
a Class "C" License makes over $
41,000 +/-

We have a Class C Licensed Op-
erator Contractor at the rate of
$65.00 per hour & most recently
was given a raise in his hourly
rate, which will bring the cost of
his service to the District well
over $ 135,000 per year!

At the last public board meeting
the Manager reported that he
was giving a raise to the individ-
ual District employees! No mat-
ter what the hard economic
times are in Dixie County!

This facility has not been operat-
ed as a business. There has been
NO DRUG TESTING! One former
Manager was arrested on Drug
Charges and another former
Manager loss his life in a vehicle
accident while under the influ-
ence of drugs.

Previous Board Members are
calling out to the District and
taking the Staff away from their
individual district duties. These


We KNOW they're lying to us, and yet we give 'em the mon-
ey anyway, and just hope for the best. It's like Nancy
Pelosi's health bill that the House of Not-So-Representatives
are going to vote on next week. They're promising "free"
medical care for everybody, but we all know we're going to
get jacked-up taxes, and crappy government-run health in-
surance that's going to force us to try to find some private
way to finance grandma's hip replacement when the govern-
ment panel says she's too old and expensive to keep her go-
ing any longer.

If the bill passes, we'll be lucky to find anybody to do the
surgery on grandma, anyway. Doctors are going to quit be-
ing doctors...not that they're only in it for the money, but se-
riously! Who is gonna give up frat parties to study and sit
through hard science classes during umpteen years of med-
ical school,racking up hundreds of thousands of dollars in
student debt to do colonoscopy exams all day if they're not
getting paid the big bucks? I sure wouldn't. Good doctors
will become an endangered species as smart people decide
to go to law school,engineering school, or go into plumbing
or air conditioning repair, wherever
"fit it n't the sheriff the big money is.


Sby Kathy McKinney

I confess: I hate my vacuum cleaner. This is
0- not a new thing, I've despised the ground it
rolls on almost since the day I bought it. It got good reviews
on Amazon, and to be honest, the first week was sort of like
the first week of a marriage. It worked beautifully and I
was ecstatic to have it around. I thought I had made a good
choice. Then, also like a lot of marriages, the belt flew off
and the dirt really started to fly

Literally The belt flew off. It totally stopped sucking and
then started to shoot sand out of the back. (Which stings
like heck if you're vacuuming in shorts, let me tell you.)
The belt on this particular model was. apparently designed
by some eighth-grade shop student. It's too big, and it's not
designed to stay on by itself. It flies off if you run over so
much as one of those little paper holes that come out of a
hole punch. I'll bet I've spent twice as much time with the
vacuum apart in pieces on.the floor, working on it, as I have
vacuuming it in the year or so that I've owned it.

And when I do manage to keep the belt on, it
STILL doesn't suck properly I can vacuum my
living room, which is not particularly big, for an
hour and half, going painstakingly over every I've got
inch, trying to get up every bit of fluff and dog
hair. Then I wipe the sweat off my forehead, sit
down and realize that. you can't even tell I've vac-
cuumed. I have to admit here that sometimes
this drives me to extremes, like using language
that would make a seasoned Marine in Iraq blush down to
his combat boots, or sometimes I threaten to throw the
darned thing out the window. One time I actually did, but I
realized that it was going to rain, and I went back, red-faced,
and got it out of the yard. (Yes, my kids think I'm crazy)

Sometime after Christmas I'm going to be done with it once
and for all and replace all my carpeting with that neat wood
laminate stuff that you can Swiffer. Kirby did my bathroom
in some that he bought at Liles Hardware, I think, and I love
it. I've got asthma that makes me wheeze like an elderly
pug, so I really need to get rid of the carpet anyway But
what am I supposed to do? Buy a new vacuum that I only
need for a few months, or just suffer with dirty, floors until
then? I don't know.

I look at all the pretty vacuum boxes in Wal-Mart, and they
all look good in the store. They almost have me convinced.
They promise HEPA filtration, they promise super-powered
cleaning, and one even promises (for $300!) that it won't lose
suction, even if you vacuum up a whole box of Lego--yes, it's
"Lego, "not "Legos, and I know it looks funny-- with it. Like
all houses that contain eight-year old boys, Lego are a big
vacuuming problem at my place. Anyway, you can't help but
realize, standing there, reading the bright, shiny boxes, that
they're lying to you. You know that as soon as you hand
over the $140 to the cashier and take your shiny box home
that two weeks later you're going to be sitting on the floor
with a Phillips'-head screwdriver cussing Mr. Dirt Devil for
all.you're worth. It never works like they promise. Never


We all know this to be true, but the
promised "doesn't lose suction"
myth of somehow getting those rich
people over there (not that there will
be any left after another year of Oba-
manomics) to.pay for "unlimited"
medical care for everybody still


sucks in the gullible like a Dyson on overdrive. Like that id-
iot woman from Detroit on the news clip who was lining up
for her free "Obama money" but didn't have a clue where it
was coming from,.we expect to get something for nothing.

Maybe it won't pass. After all, our very own Rep. Alan Boyd,
promised us, right here in Cross City in front of a packed
room, that he wouldn't vote for anything like the House bill.
(And this new one is just like the old one, but on liberal
steroids.) Will he keep that promise? Probably not, unless
people who care call, write, and generally pester him to
death and let him know that if he does vote for it, we'll
make it a point to buy a different brand of vacuum next
election year.

I was going to read the bill so that I could tell you all about
it, but to be honest, the thing is like 2,000'pages long and I
got so mad after reading that it uses "medical school" mon-
ey to subsidize vet students (the dog and cat kind, not the
I've-been-in-Afghanistan kind) that I put it down in the in-
terest of my blood pressure. You can read it if you want to,
it's online.

I've got better stuff to do this beautiful Sunday afternoon.
I'm going to do dishes while I listen to FOX News Sunday.
I'm going to eat a nice vegetable lasagna for lunch. I may
take a nap. And then I'm going to drag that danged vacuum
cleaner and my tool box out and spend the rest of the day
trying to get the Dorito crumbs off the living room floor.
Heck, it'd be easier to pick each one up by hand, I think.
They say nature abhors a vacuum. So do I.


same Previous Board Members
are attending the public Meet-
ings which is, there right, But
they are causing disruption to
the public meetings, while the
current Sitting Board is attempt-
ing to conduct District Business.

I personally served as the Trea-
surer for the Water & Sewer Dis-
trict Board. It was my responsi-
bly to see that the Revenues were
collected! As I speak today Rev-
enues are not being collected!
This public Utility is not being
operated as a business, except
for a "Privileged Few".

As I close this letter, I am telling
you the Citizens of Dixie County,
Florida that this Public Utility
Water & Sewer Plant is not col-
lecting the money, It is not oper-
ating as a business.

We owe MILLIONS of dollars
and the people of Dixie County
are responsible for these debts!
We will most likely have to pay it
with Taxes collected from all the
Dixie County Tax Payers!

Be it also known that the Manag-
er has asked the Board for a 20%
increase in his salary in these
hard economic times that we are
all faced with.

Sincerely,
Preston Chavous, Suwannee

To the people of Suwannee:

If you didn't get your letter to the
editor printed, please accept my
apology. We got so many from
Suwannee this week that were vir-
tually identical in content. I have
very limited space. Therefore it
was necessary to choose a repre-
sentative one from an actual
Suwannee resident and not from
somebody using a pseudonym. if
you're ashamed to put your real
name on your opinion, don't send
it to this newspaper --Editor


Dear Republican
National Committee:

When the Republican Par-
ty can wholeheartedly
adopt the platform and
principles of the Consti-
tution Party I may consid-
er supporting it, but until
then, I will be supporting
the Constitution Party I
do not at all support na-
tional socialism, either
creeping or galloping.
True patriots will support
national sovereignty, de-
fined national bound-
aries, reject all interna-
tionalism (world govern-
ment), defend uncompro-
mising, individual liberty,
inalienable rights and ge-
niune Constitutional gov-
ernment.

The U.S. Constitution and
Faith in God made Ameri-
ca the greatest nation on
earth. They will do so
again if we turn from our
wicked ways and embrace
that faith and those prin-
ciples once more.

Freedom is not free.

Henry Richstine,
Old Town

Mr Richstine:

Hear, hear! I totally agree.
The Constitution limits the
government. When the
Speaker of the House
dismisses Constitutional
questions as "silly, "I

crrail /Rers


By Bonnie Wilson

It was a crisp, cool, clear
day. At dawn the tempera-
ture was about 40 degrees,
although the sun was now
shining clearly across the
early morning meadow. I
had saddled my gelding Sun-
ny for an early morning
ride. Sunny, my golden
,palomino was my heart and
soul, my pride and most de-
fiantly my joy He always en-
joyed the early ride as-much'
as I did. Always a willing
partner for my exploratory
rides. We rode as one, each
understanding what the oth-
er expected.

We crossed the meadow
down by the creek and rode
into the deep woods as we
often did. Tall oaks and pine
trees was all that you could.
see for many miles. Sunny
and I had explored many
happy days in the twist and
turns that we would en-
counter on our investigative
excursions. As sunlight fil-
tered through the dense
wooded trees I could hear
SSunny's footsteps as they
crunched in the dead leaves
and rotted wood as we trav-
eled on and through the
woods.

Suddenly I heard a strange
noise from far off. It almost
sounded like a baby crying.
No, that could not be, it was
impossible. Sunny'sears
were pitched forward to the
sound and he whinnied a bit
as if to say, "what is that"? I
stroked his neck and told
him that we should check on
this strange noise. Perhaps.
someone needed our help.


I headed Sunny towards the
cry in the woods, a little un-
sure of what we were about
to encounter. We suddenly
came to a standstill. The
woods were so dense that
Sunny and I could not get
through. I heard the cry,
again and I felt sure this
was a baby that had some-
how ended up in the woods.

I had to get to this baby I
dismounted from Sunny. I
looked all around me for
some way into the dense
wooded area to reach this
cry for help. I pushed and
plowed through the bram-
bles and bushes not really
caring that I had torn my
jacket and snagged my
jeans. My face was begin-
ning to sting from the small
cuts that were rapidly ap-


352-463-2202 llC


pearing but still.. I pushed
on. Suddenly it was very
quiet, the birds had stopped
singing, and there was no
more crying. I had finally
gotten through all the bush-
es and in a very small clear-
ing in front of me, lay a
newborn fawn. The mother
deer was lying beside her
child With her huge, brown,
doe eyes filled with pain and
anguish. She had been se-
verely hurt by some wild an-
imal, probably a panther.
Now she lie dieing in the
very spot she had given life.
My heart.ached for her and I
knew as she did, there was
nothing I could do.

I promised her that I would
take this newborn fawn and
keep her safe. As I made my
promise to her she closed
her eyes and I knew she was
gone before the tears fell
down my cheek. I gently pat-
ted her still, brown, velvet
neck and told her she was
no longer in pain. I gathered
the newborn tenderly in my
arms as she made a small
cry similar to the first cries
that I had heard. It was only
then that I ha'd realized the
sounds before came from the
mother doe.

I spoke softly and gently as
I held the fawn close to my
body. Don't worry little one,
I'll take care of you, I whis-
pered as I prepared to head
back to the.spot that I had
left Sunny
I made it back to Sunny
without too much of a strug-
gle.

He was waiting patiently for
my return and he nickered
at the sight of me with my
newfound friend. I knew I
had to get this newborn
fawn to a warm bed and find
some food f6r her before she
befell the same fate as her
mother. As I had my hands
full with the fawn, it was a
little difficult to get into the
saddle. I needed a leg up and
no one was around. Perhaps
a stump would give me the
boost that I needed. Sudden-
ly, I heard a wild bone-chill-
ing scream... There was no
doubt in my mind what it
was.

There is no other sound like
the one I was hearing and I
knew .n my terrified heart .
that sound was the panther
that had killed baby Doe's
mother.

...To be continued next week,
until then.

...Happy trails to you!

from a local hunter in the

that he had discovered some

Officer Boone responded to
the location the next morn-

sign across the property on

a residence. Officer Boone

now rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes
the best. We would like to thank everyone for all of your
sympathy and kindness shown to our family over the last
few months. You as a community wrapped your arms
around our family and held us up in prayer and we will for-

again one day Thank you again for everything.

Some Hard Facts For the Record

Suwannee Water & Sewer District is in the midst of a controversy concerning DEP requirements for
licensed operators for the water and sewer plant. The plant manager does not hold a C license for
water or sewer as required by Department of Environmental Protection. The manager has budgeted
$45,000 for a contract operator to meet the requirements of DEP. At the District Board of Directors
meeting October 12 the manager informed the board that the contract operator has submitted a rate
increase that would cost the district, approximately $20,000 for the year 2010 for a total of
approximately $65,000. This rate increase was to take the affect on October 15, 2009. The manager
did not request approval from the Board for this change. The manager is not authorized to approve
contract changes or to obligate the district for amounts greater than $5000. On Thursday, October
15 the manager approved for payment to the contract operator invoices for the previous week billed
at the new rate of $65 an hour including a call out for 3 hours at the minimum rate of $65 or $195
total. The check was drawn and presented to board members for signature. The Board of Directors
has not approved a rate increase. The manager in effect has approved the change in the contract
price and presented for payment expenditure over and above his authorization.
Consider that the DEP requirement for the water plant is for a class C licensed operator to
work 7 days at 3 hours per day. That is 21 hours at $65 an hour or $1365 per week. The sewer plant
requires a class C operator one half hour per day for 6 days (however the contract operator has a
one-hour minimum charge). One hour a day 6 days a week at $65 an hour is $390. Add to that, 7
days travel time 2 hours a day or 14 hours at $65 an hour equals $910 a week. This brings the total
charges for the week to $2,665. Multiply that by 52 weeks for a total of $138,580 per year for the
contract operator. In the year 08/09 the contract operator was paid $44,012. The budget for 09/10 is
$45,000. The increase amounts $93,398 or $8.64 per month per customer.
Make no mistake. The district is grateful to the contract operator who is on call 24/7to
assure that both plants in the district, both water and sewer function properly to meet the needs of
the people of Suwannee. The contract operator has worked with the district for a number of years
and has always been very willing to adjust his time to the needs of the district and has stated that he
will continue to do so.
Certainly the previous Boards acted with the best interest of the district in mind based on
the information at hand at the time. Situations change! What was logical yesterday may seem less so
today. Name calling or blaming others for the past won't change a thing. Get over it! Constructive
criticism should always be welcome. However criticism of the problem goes down much easier when
followed by a good dose of solution.
Contrary to popular belief, there are licensed operators living in the area that are interested
in working full-time and/or part-time for the District. The district has one employee that is
approximately 90 days from being qualified for his class C. water license. There is an interested
operator with a class C water license living in Suwannee, who has been trained on the districts new
plant. There is also an individual that has all the necessary hours and is preparing to sit for the exam
for his class C wastewater license. This individual would be interested in working part-time 1 hour a
day 5 days a week at great savings to the district. There is also a dual license operator in the area that
will consider the manager's position at the district. There is another dual operator with no
managerial experience interested.
The district has approximately 900 customers that financially support the water and sewer
district. The district has a very heavy debt load due to new construction. More is anticipated with the
installation of the new water distribution system. The rate has already been increased to cover the
expense of the new distribution system. However, the money set aside has gone to other expenses
Common sense dictates that when you have a fixed income and your expenditures exceed
that income, you have 2 choices, increase rates or reduce expenses.
The Board of Directors of Suwanee Water and Sewer District has a choice. They can do
nothing and'allow the rates to soar out of sight or they can take decisive and aggressive action to
immediately reduce cost and bring expenses back in line with the budget. This is not impossible. The
resources are in the area, but the board will have to move. What they can't do is to sit backhand
expect the situation to rectify itself.

Regular Meeting Minutes

Excergt

Item 4 Attorney New Business
Attorney Thomas stated he had received a letter dated October 9, 2009 which was
forwarded to him today. The letter was addressed to Mr. Johns from the Department of
Environmental Protection. Attorney Thomas read the letter, it referenced Florida
Administrative Code 62-699.310(4)(e); clarifying operator coverage and rule requirements.
(See Attached)
Attorney Thomas expressed the need to amend the Budget to include the added cost for
operations that will no longer be allowed to be covered by Mr. Johns under his "D"
license.
Mr. O'Quinn stated that he felt the changes in operator coverage were brought on by Mr.
Brewer's contacting DEP about Mr. Johns' ability to cover partial operations under his "D"
license.
Mr. Brower stated DEP had not received written request for Mr. Johns to assume partial
operations; that the added cost were putting the District back in compliance.
Chairman Godwin asked Mr. Johns what these changes were going to do to the District
Budget; Mr. Johns stated the immediate cost would be approximately $20,000.00 for
contract operations. Mr. J6hns explained that DEP has been aware that he was performing
the duties and responding to emergency situations; that due to these changes and
increased rates for Bruce Gandy (operator) the cost for operations would increase by
approximately $20,000.00.

Technical Assistance Letter
Suwannee Water & Sewer District // PWS ID: 2151140
Dear Mr. JoThns
During the Compliance Inspection performed on August 17, 2009, t was noted that a
Class C certified operator was not performing each visit On August 13, 2009, you were
issued your Class D Dritking Water LiceAse, No. 0017397. The letter dated August26,
2009, requested that the utility send the Department information on the operator
visitation coverage currently performed between the Class C and Class D certified
operators.
After discussing and receiving clarification of Rule 62-699.310(4)e), Florida
Administrative Code from my supervisor and the Talahassee Headquarter Office, the
staffing' requirements for this system, a Category II Class C water treatmentplant,
must be provided by i Class "C or higher operator, with the lead or chief operator
being a Class "Cyor higher operator.
On October 7, 2009, I notified you and Mr. Bruce Gandy, of North Florida
Environmental Services and lead operator for this system C-7047, of the cdaxrication to
the operator coverage that this system must provide in order to meet the Rule
requirements. Per your e-mail on October 8, 2009, Mr. D onie Eplee, C4606, from
North Florida Environmental Services will start training at this system on October 18,
2009, with the official start date of November 8, 2009. The Department approves the
utilities response to correct the operator visitation deficiency, so this system will bein
compliance with the Rule requirements. In addition, the Department is aware thatyou
are currently pursuing your ~C operator license.

Old Town Tent Revival
Has Message For
America

Mark your calendar now
for the Crusades for Christ
Tent Revival in Old Town
starting Sunday, November
15th at 7PM. The tent has
been set up and is located
approx. two miles west of
Old Town, just off Kate
Green Road at the caution
light.

America and its people are
living in crucial times. Bill
Bozeman's message is time-
ly and direct from the Bible.
Here are some thoughts
from Bro. Bill...

When King Solomon had
finished building the Tem-
ple of God and dedicated it
to God, he experienced a
special visitation at night
by the Lord. 2 Chronicles
7:12-15 says, "And the Lord,
appeared to Solomon by
night, and said unto him, 'I
have heard thy prayer, and
have chosen this place to
myself for a house of sacri-
fice. If I shut up heaven
that there be no rain, or if I
command the locusts to de-
vour the land, or if I send
pestilence among my peo-
ple; if my people, which are
called by my name, shall
humble themselves, and
pray, and seek my face, and
turn from their wicked
ways; then will I hear from
heaven, and will forgive
their sin, and will heal
their land. Now my eyes
shall be open, anid mine


Singin' in the
Rain A Musical
Wednesday, Nov 4-21 8:00p
at Vam York Theater, next
to Milhopper Publix,
Gainesville, FL
You loved the movie. You
remember the song. 1920s
Hollywood is the setting for
this zany, light-hearted ro-
mantic comedy about the
transition from silent
movies to sound film, as
one movie studio struggles
to salvage a film whose
leading lady sounds more *
like a chipmunk. Box Office
352-376-4949.


ears attend unto the prayer
that is made in this place."'
This is probably the most
quoted passage of Scripture
in relation to revival and
spiritual awakening. Notice
that the first requirement
in seeking revival from the
Lord is to "humble them-
selves." The root meaning
of the word humble is "to
bend the knee." It is a pic-
ture of brokenness. It is the
very opposite of pride. 1 Pe-
ter 5:5-7 says, "God re-
sisteth the proud, and
giveth grace to the humble.
Humble yourselves there-
fore under the mighty hand
of God, that He may exalt
you in due time; casting all
your care upon Him; for He
careth for you."

Most of us will not humble
ourselves until we see that
we are helpless, hopeless
and bankrupt before God.
In most cases, we must
come to a place of despera-
tion before we will ever cry
out to God for help. Vance
Havner, one of the most
quoted preachers from the
previous century, said,
"The situation is desperate,
but we're not." Only when.
we are desperate and desti-
tute before God will we
earnestly seek His help.
It is my hope and prayer
that we will all see our des-
perate need of God in gen-
uine revival and will
earnestly pray for Him to
move in our midst as never
before.

See you at the tent on No-
vember 15th.

Nov. 2009


Welcome to our wonderful wacky world of unpre-
dictable weather. Fall, where are you? November,
CAN register some of the coldest days of the year
so be sure to keep a close eye on the frost predic-
tions and protect those cold sensitive plants you
care for. Remember, the wind and cold both affect
the plants survival -- block the wind. Placing trees /
shrubs on a southern exposure gives then the best
chance for success. Strings of Christmas tree lights
actually work fine for those few special trees. Plas-
tic sheeting is not an option. Use a regular sheet or
the best product available --a FROST BLANKET,
(the frost blanket can keep the tree between 8 10
degrees warmer!) You can also help your cause by
not fertilizing from October thru February so new
sensitive growth is not encouraged. .
Enough of the cold facts, let's look at bright side.
November is the BEST time for planting fruit trees;
(NOT CITRUS, FRUIT TREES) I recommend that if
you purchase.citrus trees this time of year, keep
them in the pot so you can protect them easier.
This is also a great time of year to buy fruit trees (
peach, pear, plum etc) as some nurseries may even
sell the less expensive bare root version only avail-
able at this time of year.
Mums are in.full bloom. Just clip off the first flush
of flowers when they die and wah-lah, in a couple of
weeks you'll have another bunch of bright colors
showing off. Combine the mums with some pan-
sies, throw in a few camellias and junipers and your
pallet is colorful and full of life despite the cold
weather.
How about that special friend who could use a ges-
ture'from someone who cares. Give a plant, sow a
friendship!
Think positive as you appreciate the creations cre-
ated by the Creator for your enjoyment.


God Bless, Art Wckoff
