Dixie, along with 59 other
counties in Florida, has
been included in a Secre-
tarian Disaster Declaration
S- due to the cold weather we
had during the first half of
January

"We are grateful to [USDA]
Secretary [Thomas] Vilsack
and our federal partners at
the USDA for granting this
needed disaster assis-
tance," said Crist. "The
designation will assist our
agricultural industry in ob-
taining economic relief for
losses sustained during the
exceptionally long freezing,
temperatures last month."

. ., The USDA designation
makes farm operators in
these counties eligible to be
,considered for assistance
from the Farm Service
Agency. Potential assis- .
tance includes FSA emer-
gency loans and the Supple-
mental Revenue Assistance
Payments Program that
was approved as part of the
Food, Conservation and En-
ergy Act of 2008.

He's npt Leonard Nimoy, but
Stan Meeks, Suwannee
Riverkeelper, is hosting his
own episode of "In Search
.of..." this week. He's made a
name for himself with his
work with manatees, but
he's set his sights on some-
thing bigger and he's look-
ing for evidence to support
,his theories. On Sunday,
with the help of a conserva-
tion group called South-
Wings that provides flights
and volunteer pilots to envi-
ronmental causes at no
charge, Mr. Meeks set out to
document what he calls a
"dead zone" of bad water
that he claims is forming off
of the coast or Shired Is-
land.

Pilot Roy Zimmer of Winter
Park, flew his Cessna STOL
up from Deland to Cross
City Airport in the early
morning hours to meet with
'Meeks and Bob Fulford, a
retired educator from Talla-
hassee. After a quick fly-
over of the Buckeye plant in
Perry, the flight path fol-
lowed the Fenholloway
down to the Gulf, down the
, coastline past Keaton
Beach, over Steinhatchee,


Horseshoe, Shired Island
and Suwannee.: They fol-
lowed the Suwannee up to
Branford to get an aerial,
view of any possible dam-
age done by agricultural
pollution from the dairy
farms in the area.

Flying over Perry wasn't
much different than driving
in; it was possible to "follow
your nose." Even from an
airplane, the distinct odor
that emanates from the
Buckeye plant was overpow-
ering. Looking down, the
water was black and had a
film on top that oozed more
than flowed. The gulf water
was brown and streaky,
which Meeks pointed out as
signs of the "dead zone" tha
he has been warning about.

He says a dead zone is an
area of water that is
hypoxic, or has low oxygen
due to algae growth and pol-
lutants like dioxins anrd ni-
trates from fertilizers. These
areas are death to local
seafood industries and are
unable to support the plant
life necessary to feed sea
creatures. Meeks is deter-,
mined to slow the growth of


"environmentally friendly" '
cellulosic ethanol research
plant, next to the existing
plant, The project will "ex-
plore ways to harness
byproducts from some of the
most promising" techniques
to make :"green" versions of
petroleum products. The
Florida Legislature dropped
$20 million to fund the joint
project.


Meeks uses video footage to document evidence about the "dead zone"


the dead zone by fighting
Buckeye's proposal to run a
fifteen mile-long pipeline di-
rectly out into the Gulf of
Mexico to discharge the 69
million gallons a day of


treated waste-
water that they're
said to be
dumping into the
Fenholloway now.

In a carefully
worded letter to
the Cedar Key
Beacon, Buckeye
Public Affairs ,
v Manager Dan
Simmons denied
that Buckeye
waste was going
to be discharged
"directly into the
Gulf of Mexico."
He writes, "A relo-
cation [emphasis
ours] of treated
wastewater with-
t in the Fenhol- ,
loway River is be-


ing proposed to re-
move salty wastewater from
the freshwater portion of
the river." Buckeye claims
to have spent $70 million

order to reduce the environ-
mental effects on the Fenhol-
loway. Buckeye has entered
a joint venture with the Uni-
versity of Florida for an

holloway is a more serious--
though less sexy-- problem.

On January 26th, the Bears .
played host to the Bucca-
neers of Branford and cele-
brated Senior Night.

The JV teams got things go-
ing. and boy was it a game!
The score flip-flopped back
and fourth between the two
teams the entire second'
half, and the Bears put up a
great comeback, only to fall
just.a hair shy of the victo-
ry as they were defeated 42-.
41..

The Lady Bears then took to
the court and just like the
JV team; put up a great
game, but also fell short as
they were defeated by a final
of 55-51.

The Varsity team then took
the floor, as the three se-
niors warmed up for the fi-
nal time on the home floor.
The Bears looked good the


entire first half and had a
31-21 lead at the half. During
halftime the Bears honored
their three Seniors Tyler
McEver, Markell Harris, and
Stephen Godbolt. The boys
were presented jerseys,
framed photos, and a auto-
graphed ball by the coaches
and their teammates. Also
being honored at halftime
were the Senior cheerlead-'
ers Robin Mingo, Megan
Hunt, Courtney Daniels and
Dylaina Ducksworth.

The second half saw the
SBears continue to make
their shots and rebound the
ball well and the Bears were
able to sink the Bucs and
bring home a 61-56 victory
on Senior Night.

On Friday Night the Bears
travelled to Trenton totake
on the Tigers and were de-
feated by a final score of 50-
27.


Chamber Annual Banquet



Awards Ceremony


by Carol West

Over 100 attended the 2010
Dixie County Chamber of
Commerce annual banquet
and award program on Fri-
day, January 31st at the
Trail Rider's Club. Donna
Creamer, Executive Director
of the Pure Water Wilder-
ness presented information
on the Local Option Resort
Tax. She stated that Dixie
County is only one of 5
Florida counties who cur-
rently do not have this tax
in place, and that projec-
tions call for an estimated
annual revenue of over
$20,000 which would be used
solely to promote the natur-
al and historical resources
of Dixie County. A recap of
the year 2090 was presented
by master of ceremonies, *
Judge Fred Koberlein. The
Dixie County COP's were
presented with the Citizens
of the Year Award by Sher-
iff Hatcher. Donna Creamer
and PWW was presented
with the O.K. Jones Busi-


ness Award; Diana Marcum,
manager of Hungry Howies
was presented with the Ray-
mond E. Warren Award;
Business Longevity awards
were presented to Mickey
Johnson Logging and
VanAernam Logging & Tim-
ber Management. Special
recognition award was pre-
sented to the "biscuit lady"
Arthaga Simpson. Award
winners had a host of fami-
ly and friends in atten-
dance, but the surprise was
still evident on most of the
faces. A delicious dinner
was prepared by John Kel-
ley, assisted by members of
the DCHS and RRMS bands.
The theme for the event was
NATURE BASED TOURISM
and featured beautiful area
photos taken by Ben West &
Debbie Deweese, along with
a bicycle, kayak, palm frons
and other area recreational
opportunities. Many
thanks to the banquet com-
mittee and all of those who
provided door prizes.

Every Week without Fail, Since July 1, 1921
2010 Dixie County Advocate


Talk's cheap, so


do something!


I can't say that there was a whole lot I liked about President
Obama's State of the Union message last week, except that
the TV crew was very clever in the way they made the
teleprompter screens so inconspicuous. Were it npt for the
fact that the President looked like he was watching a tennis
match, you'd 'hardly have known.

Incidentally, I know that teleprompters have been around
since at least the 1950's, and Obama might not be the first
president to use them; however I've never noticed a
teleprompter fixation as obvious as his, the efforts of the
production crews to conceal the screens notwithstanding.
Of course, the liberal media never mention this, but can
you imagine what would happen if Ronald Reagan or either
George Bush had used a teleprompter? We'd never have
heard the end of' it.

But, I digress. On to what little I did [END like about Oba-
ma's 70 minute exercise in oratorical excess. Essentially, it
had to do with his statements to the effect that we need to
get into offshore oil drilling, nuclear power and clean coal,
and not just wind and solar energy, if we're ever going to
get off the hook with our dependence on foreign oil. (It
would have been nice if he'd thrown in a mention of our
abundant petroleum resources in ANWAR, but maybe ,
Sarah Palin can get that done sometime down the road.)

For the moment, I'd just like to call attention t6 why we are
not taking anywhere near full advantage of our plentiful
domestic supplies of petroleum and natural gas, building
refineries to process crude oil into gasoline and distribut-
ing motor fuel without having to deal with a plethora of
varying state and local compliance standards that stifle pro-
duction and run up costs. It is decades of counterproduc-
tive over-regulation. I'm talking about laws passed by leg-
islative bodies, rulings handed down by activist judges and
standards set by regulatory-agencies that answer to no one
for whatever obstacles they erect in the path of progress.


We are no longer building nuclear reactors to provide elec-
tricity because "The China Syndrome," a fictional movie
starring "Hanoi Jane" Fonda, virtually shut down industry
expansion 40 years ago. We no longer use DDT, the most ef-
ficient insecticide ever invented, because environmentalist
Rachael Carson wrote a book entitled The Shient Spring
theorizing that DDT caused birds to lay thinner egg shells.
DDT nearly eradicated malaria before it's use was discon-
tinued, now the disease claims millions of lives a year. Not
an energy issue, but another example of how impulsive re-
action to liberal fantasies can adversely impact the quality
of life for ordinary people.

Speaking of which, the liberal fantasy du jour-- at least un-
til fairly recently--has been global warming, or as its propo-
nents now prefer, "climate change." And it has a new adher-
ent, none'other than Islamic Terrorist in Chief, Osama bin,
Ladin. Osama blames the United States and "other industri-
alized nations" (notice the "Great Satan" gets top billing)
for this developing disaster. Doggone, that guy can sure do a
heap of research from that cold, dark cave where he's hid-
ing out! In any event, he wants the world to shun the Amer-
ican dollar. Wait a minute, I thought the world was already
doing that.

Don't you know, Al Gore must be proud to have such a wor-
thy individual on his team. Osama wants Western Civiliza-
tion to go down the drain, which is exactly what will hap-
pen if the global warming agenda is pursued. It would be
nice if the President of the United States understood this,
but unless and until he does, all the talk about cutting our
economy loose from dependency on foreign oil benefits the
environment only to the extent that it is what makes the
grass grow green.


Tebow, television and tolerance


by Kathy McKinney.


oor Tim Tebow. He can't seem to catch a
break. He's young, smart, talented, fantasti-
ally good looking, and in Gainesville, he's a
ock star. I don't watch football--not even the
1jmgGators--so everything I know about Tebow I
pretty much got second hand by listening to Angel gush over
him a couple of days a week. I understand he's a serious
Christian, since he came to FreedomFest right here in Dixie
and he spends his' summers as a missionary. I know because
I'm a homeschooler, that his mom homeschooled him, too.

So, being a rock star, and a devout religious guy, it only
makes sense that Focus on the Family would ask him to do a


pro-life Superbowl commercial. Apparently
Tebow's mom was on a mission in the Phillip-
ines when she was pregnant with him and got
sick. Her doctor advised her to end the preg-
nancy She, quite rightly, told him to stick it
* and a few months later gave birth to God's
Gift to Gators. Sure, it's not Bethlehem and
he wasn't born in a manger, but it's a nice
feel-good, pro-life birth story anyway Which,
like Sarah Palin's decision to have her son
handicapped Trig, absolutely infuriates
, women's groups on the leftish side of the
spectrum. I'm afraid Superman has walked
into the crosshairs of some scary-bad people.
(Just ak Mrs. Palin. They don't play nice on
the fat left side of the playground.)


"You just ti

The feminist groups "The Women's Media Center, the Na-
tional Organization of Women and the Feminist Majority
have all jumped on the anti-Tebow bandwagon. They say the
ad is "anti-choice" and "intolerant." Hmmm. I went to the
NOW website and looked at some of their material. They
have a whole glowing page on abortion advocate Margaret
Sanger who they praise like some sort of hero. They "cele-
brate the determination of Margaret Sanger, a woman who
spearheaded a movement..."

Yeah, well, I've read some of Sanger's stuff, too. And before
those liberal women's groups start slamp]ing our boy Tebow
for being "intolerant," I suggest they check out the motes in
their own eyes and read some of the musings of their hero,
Ms. Sanger,. who said, We do not want word to go out that we
want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is
the man who can straighten out that idea-if it ever occurs to
any of their more rebellious members.", She also said, "We

are failing to segregate morons who are increasing and multi-
plying... a dead weight of human waste.. .an ever-increas-
ing spawning class of human beings who never should have
been born at all."

I guess they only have to be "tolerant" when they feel like it.
I have to admit, I just don't understand these people or the
way they think. There's a group called the Freedom from
Religion Foundation that opposes a commemorative stamp
of Mother Theresa. Yep. Mother Theresa. How can you pos-
sibly be opposed to a little old lady nun who spent her life in
some of the world's worst hellholes trying to help people?
Who would attack her or call her views intolerant? She is a
world apart from the hateful, anti-poor, anti-minority Ms.
Sanger. Mother Theresa said, "...these are people who maybe
have nothing to eat, maybe they have not a
home where to live, but they are great peo-
ry to be nice ple. The poor are very wonderful people."
Sanger and her "girlfriends" would rather
to everybody that those annoying poor folk had.never
them all the : been born or had been quickly dispatched
ll after birth in order to remove the "dead
at them how weight of human waste." Now that's
tolerance and compassion for you.


vould want to '
They claim Mother Theresa gave an "anti-
be treated." abortion rant" during her Nobel Prize
speech, so she shouldn't get a postage
:Tim Tebow, stamp in her honor. She used her free-
'domi of speech to express her own opin-
ion, and since it doesn't align with theirs, her voice should
be squelched and her reputation destroyed. Lord spare us
from the "tolerance" of the liberal left! When even a little
old nun is fair game for attack...who is safe? I can't help but
wonder if Tebow knew that just being in a family-oriented
commercial was going to give him more trouble than any
Georgia Bullddogs defensive line.

CBS has agreed to run the Tebow commercial. It's doing
business with the enemy in the minds of these "tolerant"
groups. Therefore, CBS isn't towing the liberal line and
must be punished or silenced. The Women"s Media Center
is retaliating against the network with a letter writing cam-
paign threatening boycotts and a contest for whoever can
come up with the most obnoxious interpretation of the ini-
tials CBS. They suggest "Corporate Broadcast Sellouts" and
"Cancel Bowl Sexism" for starters. I think Tebow should
send one in for them. Maybe "Cage Batty Socialists," "Cele-
brate Birth Stories," or "Christian Boys Succeed."

The next day I snorkeled in

beautiful fish that make Flori-

through the Everglades
brought me a deeper apprecia-
tion of water and Florida's
wildlife, from the alligators
sunning themselves on the edge
of canals to the white ibis pok-
ing for bugs in the muck.
And now, that could all become
something known only from
the writers and artists and pho-
tographers who will leave the
records of a once-upon time.
I've heard it over and over
again in talking to the people
who study such things: Florida
is one of the most vulnerable
states when if comes to climate
change. Mostly they mean we
are vulnerable to "sea level
rise."

Here's my simple view of
what's happening and will con-
tinue to happen: when water.


well. Most of us envision that
happening sometime in the
nebulous future, but the news
that came out of a conference
held in Florida in January tells
us otherwise.

"Since 1930, the sea has risen 10
inches in Florida," said Reed
Noss, a biology professor from
the University of Central Flori-
da and organizer of the event.'
"And 80 percent of southeast-
ern Florida's flood-control
* structures are failing because
of sea level rise,, according to
the South Florida Water Man-
agement District."

Harold Wanless of the Univer-
sity of Miami suggested to the
participants that "a rise of four
or five feet by the year 2100 is
more likely, with higher levels
possible," according to a press
release from UCF. The confer-
ence, sponsored by the Florida
Institute for Conservation Sci-
ence, marked Florida's first in-
terdisciplinary meeting on the


ologically than any other state
in the country; yet it has done
the least to prepare than any
other coastal state."

A report released in December
'in Nature warns about the
I speed of the Earth's shifting
climatic zones. This impacts
wildlife because the ecosystems
where they live, are changing,
forcing wildlife to change their
habits now. Shrinkage of habi-
tat in the Keys already is hav-
ing an impact on the endan-
gered Florida key deer and oth-
er plants found only in that'
part of the world, according to
Noss.
Wildlife and habitat managers
may have to rethink where they
put their efforts sooner than
thought. Why spend millions of
dollars on habitat that might .
not be here in 100 years? Money
and resources might be better
spent elsewhere. That's why it's
crucial that land planners at all
levels of government start now
to plan for what appears to be


"This means wildlife
will not only face direct im-
pacts from sea level rise, but
they also will have to contend
with indirect impacts from how
people respond as well," Eason
said. "Imagine the last wild
panther captured, with zoos the
only remaining refuge for the
homeless cats."

So what do we do? We let
the managers manage and the
scientists research and moni-
tor. Individually, we become
careful stewards of the envi-
ronment through our actions to
slow down the process. For me,
this means buying an alterna-
tive-fuel vehicle when I pur-
chase my next car. Using less
energy and becoming less de-
pendent upon foreign oil
sources is good for our econo-
my, our air and our wildlife.
Then we all can continue our
love affair with Florida and its
natural resources for a little
while longer.

IF you were unfortunate
enough to miss the trail-rid
at San Felasco, you really
missed a lot! The morning
was simply beautiful! The
skies were an incredible
shade of blue. Eleven riders
including Dave and myself
had a wonderful ride. The
temperature was cool but
not too cold for a fabulous
January morning.

We also had the pleasure of
S- meeting with a couple of
good friends that are still
members of our club, Ann,
and Mike Sharkey,
who live in Bris-
tol, Florida, near
Tallahassee. It
was great to see
them again. Re-
cently they
acquired new paint .
horses, Magic and
Dandy, and this
would be a test
trail ride for the pair. Magic
and Dandy did very well for
their first outing away from
- : home.

The morning ride was Flor
da trail riding at it's very
best. To me this was trail
riding personified! I really
loved it. The sun was warm
and inviting and we. quickly
shed our jackets. The trails
were intriguing with twists
and turns and log crossings
and thickly wooded hills.
Buddy was in rare form and
I think he liked it as niuch
as I, however he would not

turesome trail and I would
love for those of you who
missed it to join in on the
next one.. You would hot be
disappointed.

e After all the rain we had on
Thursday it was a real plea-
sure to have a sunny day for
a trail ride. We did run into
a bit of water on the trails,
s but it certainly did not
dampen our spirit or the
trail ride. Only one horse
was a little unsure of the
water at his feet. For a mo-
ment he was really stuck
into the ground and would
not move forward to or'
through the water. He soon
learned with a little help
from his friends that the wa-
ter was alright
and he could
get through it
without falling
into a black
hole. Now that
was Remark-
able!

After our near-
ly 10-mile ex-
c, cursion we had a lunch
break back at the trailhead.
It's always fun to have lunch
and discuss the fun we just
had. The water trails and
i- the hillside were certainly a
high point. I did miss our
creek side adventure, al-
though we did go to it and
found that is was impass-
Y able due to the brush and
obstacles that were in the
creek. We all felt that to go
-forward might indanger our
horses or possibly one of us.'
d You must consider safety
first, that is the goal here.
However, the ride was in-
credible. Anyone interested
in trail riding may contact
us at levy2@flahorse.com.
2r Until next time, happy trails
d to you!

Gulf grouper sport

season closes Feb. 1,

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
advises anglers that regula-
tions prohibit the recreation-
al harvest of all shallow-wa-
ter groupers (gag, black, red,
yellowfin, scamp, yellow-
mouth, rock hind and red
hind) from Feb. 1 through
March 31 in all Gulf of Mexi-
co waters off Florida, except
in all waters of Monroe
County

Closing the recreational har-
vest of .all Gulf shallow-water
grouper species for two
months each year during the
spawning season reduces
overfishing of Gulf gag
grouper. It does this by limit-
ing the unintended catch and
possible mortality of gag
grouper to help it rebuild its
populations and achieve larg-
er annual harvests in the fu-
ture for this important
species.
North Fla. spotted
seatrout season closes.
Feb. 1

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) advises anglers that
the recreational harvest sea-
son for spotted seatrout in
North Florida will close for
one month to help maintain
spotted seatrout abundance.

State regulations prohibit the,
harvest and possession of
spotted seatrout from Feb. 1
until March 1 each year in all
Atlantic waters north of the
Flagler-Volusia county line to
the Florida-Georgia border,'
and in Gulf of Mexico waters
north of a line running due
west from the westernmost
point of Fred Howard Park
- Causeway (which is about
1.17 miles south of the Pinel-
las-Pasco county line) to the
Florida-Alabama border. .,

All other areas in Florida re-
main open to the recreational
harvest of spotted seatrout
under current FWC regula-
tions,.which are available at
MyFWC.com/Rules, click on
"Fishing- Saltwater."


* Youth Waterfowl Hunting Days
are Feb. 6-7

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) and the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service established Feb.
6-7 as Youth Waterfowl Hunting
Days.
These select days are a gteat op-
portunity to get young people
outdoors and to introduce them
to the excitement of waterfowl
hunting.
The statewide, two-day season al-
lows children younger than 16
years old with adult supervi-
sion to hunt waterfowl, coots
and common moorhens. Super-
visors (18 years or older) must
be present and may assist young
hunters,'but state regulations
prohibit the supervisors from
hunting. Hunters younger than
16 years of age do not need li-
censes, permits or federal duck
stamps. All regulations and'bag
limits for hunting waterfowl ap-
ply to this two-day season. Hunt-
ing regulations are available on-
line at MyFWC.com/Hunting or
in the FWC's waterfowl and coot
seasons brochure, available at
county tax collectors' offices.

STATEWIDE GRAND JURY
WILL HELP RESTORE
TRUST IN
GOVERNMENT

Attorney General Bill Mc-
Collum today issued the
following statement on the
upcoming statewide grand
jury on public corruption,
which is scheduled to begin
jury selection next week:
"Floridians should be able
to be proud of the public of-
ficials who serve their state.
and their communities, not
ashamed of the latest scan-
dal by someone in elected of-
fice. We absolutely should
expect better of those we
have chosen to lead us. -

"The grand jury will need to
examine the blatant theft of
public resources and, per-
haps most importantly, the
illicit sources of influence .
upon public officials and
how to lift the cloud of 'scan-
dal that has been present for
far too long.

The Statewide Grand Jury
was convened by the Florida
Supreme Court in early De-
cember.to examine a list of
specific crimes including
bribery, extortion, unlawful
compensation for official be-
havior, corruption by threat
against a public servant, of-*
ficial misconduct, falsifying
records, and misuse of con-
fidential information. The
grand jury will be com-
prised of jurors summoned
from the 11th, 15th, 17th-and
20th judicial circuits. The
presiding judge will be the
Honorable Victor Tobin,
Chief Judge in and
for the 17th Judicial Cir-
cuit.

jury, including a tip

tion at 1-800-646-0444; is on-

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) closed several roads.

Management Area in Taylor
County.
The closed roads include:
that portion of Swartz
Tram lying east of Cow Creek
Grade,
r Murphy Tram,
Cannon Grade,
Tram 9S,
Tram 4S,
Possum Tram and

Culverts on these roads will
be replaced as scheduled. Ac-
cording to.FWC officials, the
culverts now in place will be
removed to allow the water to
scour the area for subsequent
culvert replacement.
"During this time, roadways
will be impassable and threat-
en public safety," said Matt
Pollock, regional biologist at
the FWC's Lake City office.
The FWC scheduled the road
closures until Feb. 13.

February 2010

I would like to begin my
article this month with
heart felt sorrow in the loss
of a friend and ex-coworker
Capt. Chad Reed. We extend
our prayers and thoughts to
Holly, the boys and the rest
of the family Also weigh-
ing heavy on my heart is
the general population of
an historically'depraved
and sufferingmco3ry of
Haiti due to the horrific
earthquake that struck
their capital city.

January lived up to its ex-
pectations of being the
bearer of record breaking
cold weather. Arctic air
damaged and destroyed
many crops in the Sun-
shine State as well as
breaking the spirit of some.
farmers that were already
confronting a deep reces-
sion.My question to all of
us is "Where are YOU
through all of this?" Are
you like unto the ostrich
and have your head in the
sand? OR: are you. ready to
kick the dust off of your
shoes and stride forward
with hope and determina-
tion to win? I'm for putting
on the running shoes and
finish the race set before
us.

Now that deer season is
over you may be going
through withdrawals. How-
ever, it is a great time to get'
out in the cooler weather to
clean up those dead and
fallen branches. Time to '
make plans on what and
how much you want to
plant this year in your yard.
and garden. It is your last
chance to trim your crepe
myrtles. Don't even think
about cutting the azaleas
until AFTER they bloom
later this spring! Keep the
lids on the fertilizers until


the freezing days are past
(frost in late February and
early. March is still possi-
ble). It is time to figure out
where you are going to put
up that greenhouse mom-
ma has always wanted.(a
few people have asked me
where they can get green-
house material and hoop
houses; Farm Tec and Atlas
Greenhouses are two good
sources).

On the brighter side, camel-
lias with their red and pink
blossoms are showing off
all over our area. A few
fruit trees are already
pushing buds. Nandinas
and hollies still have clus-
ters of red berries looking
like artificial decorations
hanging onto their branch-
,es; providing the local birds
have not eaten all for a
snack!).

As you sit inside nice and
comfy cozy during these
chilly wintry days, take
some time to reflect upon
how thankful we should
feel about: our freedoms,
liberties, access to clean
drinking water,.medical fa-
cilities, electricity, and
scores of other conve-
niences.we often take for
granted. No matter 'What is
in your wallet?' (as the com-
mercial goes), please try to
uplift people who are less
fortunate than yourself.

-Your time, efforts and kind
words may be just enough
to allow them to make it
through the valley to get to
the hope that lies on the
other side. Put-feet to your
prayers and do what you
can.

Happy gardening and may
God bless,

Arbor pay Celebration
in Dixie County

Florida Celebrates National
Arbor Day on January 15th
this year. Old Town Elemen-
tary, Dixie Learning Acade-
my and Anderson Elemen-
tary all participated this
year. Each School received 2
Red Maple trees and 1
Loblolly Bay tree to plant on


their school grounds. All
three of these trees will
make a beautiful shade tree
that when they fully mature
will reach about 30-40 tall
and will have a foliage
spread of about 30 foot,


cated at Anderson Elemen-
tary This photo will give the
youth an idea as to how tall
their pine seedlings may be-
come over many years.
The youth at Old Town Ele-
mentary enjoyed a beautiful

Maples and:Loblolly Bay A
special Thank you goes out
to Ms Margaret who per-dug
the holes for two Red
Maples and 1 Loblolly Bay

Another Special Thank you
goes to Jose and Lonnie
with the Division of
Forestry for their assistance
with planting these trees
and explaining to the youth
how to properly plant trees.


During halftime at the Branford game the Bears honored
their three Seniors Tyler McEver, Markell Harris, and
Stephen Godbolt. The boys were presented jerseys, framed
photos, and a autographed ball by the coaches and their
teammates. Also being honored at halftime were the Senior
cheerleaders Robin Mingo, Megan Hunt, Courtney Daniels
and Dylaina Ducksworth.


The students in
each classroom

Suwannee River Fair Rule Change

At a recent meeting, the Board of Directors of the Suwan-
nee River Fair made a change to the rules which all ex-
hibitors need to know about. Rule #12 of the General Rules
states:
12. Exhibitors must weigh/tag in (at both the initial and fi-
nal weigh in), as well as show and sell, his/her own animal

nates are approved only on the basis of emergency or
health problems or for team members in 4H or FFA sanc-
tioned events ONLY. Request for substitution by alternates

The rule has been expanded to approve alternates for
school sponsored events and school sponsored activities.
The exhibitor must subsequently contact 2 board members
to demonstrate that they are able to control their animal be-
fore they will be allowed to show the aninim .
Please contact me if you have any questions.

Dear Mama,
Can you believe it's been five years
Since Jesus brought me home?
*. I run and play and laugh all day
Your sing around His throne.
SI wanted to thank you one more time
'* For giving endlessly .
You gave me your all each and every day
And took excellent care of me.
Your tender touch and gentle voice
Wrapped me in your love
You rocked me gently on your lap
And sang sweet hymns from above.
Thank Kyleigh and Chelsea for sending balloons
On special days of the year
I love to see them coming
To share with other children here.
Luke and daddy love to hunt
And mess around and play
I remember when I rode in daddy's truck
And we would hitnt all day.,
Please tell my friends and family
I want to see them again.
They must love and live for Jesus
So they can come live with Him.
I saw someone else I knew today
Mr. Chad was a wonderful man.
He tried to help me on that final day
But God had a different plan.
You never know when He'll call you home
He gives no promise of life.
But if you're ready when He calls
You'll live in paradise.
Well Mama, it's time to go again
So I'm sending you all my love,
When you're sad and missing me
Just reach out for love from above.
Somewhere over the rainbow.....
I love you
Your loving son,

SRWMD purchases
conservation
easement to protect
resources on the
Santa Fe River


LIVE OAKl, FL, February 1,
2010 The Suwannee River
Water Management District
(District) has purchased a
conservation easement on
443 acres of land on the San-
ta Fe River adjacent to
O'Leno State Park in Co-
lumbia County The ease-
ment, secured fqr water re-
source protection, was pur-
chased from Ronald and
Dorothy Feagle on Jan. 27.

The conservation easement
will perpetually protect 2.54
miles of river frontage, 435
acres of floodplain forest
and 8 acres of adjacent up-
lands, all of which will re-
main in their natural state
and condition. In addition,
it will provide for springs
and surfacewater protection
and preserve the habitat of
wading birds, waterfowl
and other wildlife.
A large portion of the prop-
erty is located within a Dis-
trict regulatory floodway
and the majority of the land
lies within a 10-year and
100-year floodplain. Bonnet
Lake, a freshwater slough of
the main river channel, is
also situated on the proper-
ty.
"We commend the Feagles
for partnering with the Dis-
trict to protect our natural
resources," said Joe Flanh-
gan, the District's director
of land acquisition and
management. "Not only will
this easement provide a
buffer for the Santa Fe Riv-
er, it will allow for natural
forest regeneration and pro-
tect hundreds of floodway


Gainesville, FL -
"We send thousands of
vehicles to wholesale auctions
every year" began-Jas6n Dil-
lon, Used Car Sales Manager
of Wade Raulerson Honda.
"And vehicles at these auc-
tions are typically sold well
below market value. For ex-
ample, last week we sold a
ninety-four Honda Accord
-for $2710. That car would
have been over $6075 if it
. were on a local dealer's lot."
Only licensed auto bro-
kers are allowed to attend
these wholesale auctions,
where vehicles are sold for lit-
erally pennies on the dollar.
Additionally, auction atten-
dees are charged a hefty sum
to participate, making it vir-
tually impossible for the pub-
lic to attend.
"What we're doing here
at Wade Raulerson Honda
goes against the grain of what
everyone else is doing in the
auto industry. Instead of sell-
ing excess vehicles at whole-
sale auctions, we're selling
them to the public at whole-
sale auction prices. If we have
to sell a vehicle at a loss, why
not sell it to a Gainesville res-
ident who'll benefit from the
vehicle," stated Dillon regard-

to have to send 137 vehicles
to the auction house.'But be-
fore we do, we're going to
give the Gainesville public a
chance to buy a used car at

The "wholesale 'to the

urday from 8:25am to
5:25pm at Wade Raulerson
Honda.
"The wholesale to the
public event will only be held
at our location on Main
Street," noted Dillon.
"Since the 137 vehicles
must be disposed of, we can
only hold this event for nine
hours this Saturday. Although
we close at 6pm on Saturday,
we have to insist that all sales
be concluded by 5:25pm.
That way we have enough
time to prepare the paper-
work and get the remaining
vehicles on trucks to take to
the auction. I've been in the
auto business for a long time
now and this is the first time
I've ever done something like
this. If you're even consider-
ing buying a used car, I can't
urge you enough to come by

opportunity of a' lifetime,"

Individual Household Well
Loan Program Available

Southeast Rural Community
Assistance Project, Inc. an-
nounces it has $300,000 from
the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture, Rural
Development for a loan pro-
gram for homeowners need-
ing to repair- or construct
water wells for their resi-
dences.

The loan program is specifi-
cally designed to assist low-
'to moderate-income individ-
uals needing loans to con-
struct, refurbish, and ser-
vice their household well
systems.. Loans from the
program cannot be used for
other purposes.

The program serves resi-
dents in the seven states
comprising Southeast
RCAP's service region:
Delaware, Maryland, Vir-
ginia, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Georgia,
and Florida. The purpose of
the program is to target
loans to the significant
numbers of homeowners inrr
the seven states whose geo-
graphically isolated house-
holds lack water service,
and for whom it is not feasi-
ble to be connected to new
or existing community wa-
ter systems.

Loan applicants must own
and occupy the home for
which they are applying for
a water well loan. The water
well system being funded
may not be associated with
the. construction of a new
dwelling. Also the water
well system being funded by
the loan may not be used to
.substitute for water service
available from collective wa-
ter systems.

The home using the water
well system being funded by
the loan must be located in
a rural area. The combined
household income for an in-


not be more than 100 per-.
cent of the median non-met-
.. ropolitan household income
for the state. Priority will be
given to applicants who are
disabled, elderly, or who
have minor children.
The loans have a 1% inter-
est rate and up to a twenty-
year repayment term. A
maximum of $11,000 per
household may be borrowed
under this program.

In the seven states of the
Southeast'RCAP service re-
gion, between one-eighth
and one-third of all home-
owners rely on wells. In all,
over 105,000 occupied house-
holds in the seven state re-
gion lack complete indoor
plumbing. It is expected that
many of these households
would be eligible for loans
to create water well systems
for their homes.
Loan applications will be,
available soon on the South-
(east RCAP website :
Swww.southeastrcap.drg. In-
terested parties may also
contact the agency directly

.-A


Hunting season is over and
hopefully this beautiful
Weather is helping you get
the smoke smell out of
everything. Our freezer is
stocked with venison and
pork. The Mister has been
experimenting with a few
recipes and has figured out
a recipe that we really like
for venison. He has allowed
me to put it in as this week's
.: recipe. We have decided that
'this treatment of the meat
would be good for both veni-
son or pork. It's hard to get
measurements out of him so
use your judgment with
some of the ingredients.
Now this recipe is kind of
* ,, pricey. I figure, one pound of
'-venison or pork costs some-
W'- Where between 800 to 900
dollars. That doesn't include
the cost of time spent
preparing for hunting sea-
son or include the cost of all
the special loads of laundry
using non-scented, no UV
glow soap and dirt scented
fabric softener sheet. ,


.acatelwoo4 "Bill's


; Musta YV saLve

Remove all tough sinew and
cut into fry sized pieces,
then pound to tenderize
8 oz. Salad dressing (Italian
or Billy's favorite, Cesar
Parmesan)
5 heaping tablespoons pre-
pared mustard

Add the salad dressing and
mustard to a gallon sized
storage bag. Squish it
around a little to combine
and then add the meat.
Make sure all the meat is
covered with the marinade.


VALENTINE'S


DAY'


SPECIAL


SIRLOIN FOR


TWO $21.95






00pm ./


Located on US 19 S
of Cross City next to
Charlie's Bar


Place in refrigerator and let
marinate as long as possible.
At the very least try to let it
sit for 2 hours. Overnight is
best. Remove from the bag
and lay down flat and season
to taste. Billy uses salt, pep-
per, garlic salt and Season
All salt. At this point you
can either fry or grill. Use
your favorite fry mix. He
just uses 2 cups all purpose
flour and %a cup cornmeal.
Then fry as usual.
If you decide to grill this
meat he wanted you to be
sure to add some bacon for
the fat content. As you know
venison is very lean and can
dry out. He usually just lays
the bacon on top. Then when
it is time to turn he removes
the bacon and turns the
meat and puts the bacon
back.

Surprisingly, the mustard
flavor is not as strong as you
may think. When I saw this
yellow combination I was
leery but was proven wrong.

Side note: Either method is
delicious but be sure not to
over cook. Do not get dis- ,
tracted by washing your car,
blowing off the carport or
cutting down a tree. Dry
tough meat is not the goal!
(and yes, all these things
have happened while a cer-
tain someone is in charge of
the cooking)

This week's tip is also con-
tributed by Himself. The
only thing that should be
left standing in a yard are
trees. Hedges are to be
trimmed during the time of
year when NOT recommend-
, ed. Azalias should be cut
just before they bloom. Any
flowering plants should be
run over by the lawnmower
just after they bloom. The


Georgia Rose your wife's
grandmother planted before
she was born should be cut
down so many times if final-
ly dies. Ok, I'll stop.


Tip


Billy uses lacquer thinner as
much as I use vinegar. He
puts a little on a rag to wipe
up small oily spills. He
wipes down his shop tools
and workspace. If he spills
cooking oil on the concrete
he uses a rag with a little
lacquer thinner to wipe it up
with no residue. Just be
careful it is very flammable
until it evaporates:-

Well, He is already talking
about cleaning up the boat.
He has changed out the Ca-
bela's reading materials for
the Bass Pro Shop maga-
zines in the "office". So I
guess soon we will bring you
some recipes for Million
Dollar Mullet or "I need a
new reel" Grouper or possi-
bly "I work hard I deserve
it" Catfish.

I would love to hear from:
more of you. E-mail me any
tips that have made your life
easier. Your favorite recipe.
Is there something you
would have loved to have
known when you were first
starting out? Is there some-
thing you did that you
vowed never to do again? "
Drop me a line. Nothing is
too small. I will love hearing
from you. We are all in the
same boat. There will al-
ways be empty bellies and
dirty dishes. Dust on the
table and dirt on the floor. A
little bit of humor and ad-
vice can make the trip so
much easier.

KATA / lINGS / FORMS

Have you ever seen a movie
where the character is
alone on the beach, on a
mountain top, or some oth-
er remote place, moving
around almost like a dance
using martial arts tech-
niques? Have you seen the
advertisement for a new
movie coming out called
"'The Last Air Bender"? It
shows a small boy sur-
rounded by, candles and he
spins around doing martial
arts moves with a Bo. That
is Kata (in Japanese), or
Hyung (in Korean), or Form
(in English). One meaning
of Hyung is "perfect form".

To an untrained observer,
the Hyung (pronounced
young) appears to be dance-
like drills, constantly re-.
peated by students, yet hid-
den in these movements are
hundreds of kakushi waza
(secret techniques). They
consist of many gymnastic
movements, in which vari-
ous offensive and defensive
techniques are arranged
harmoniously.

Students work both as indi-
viduals and in a group. A
group setting will teach the
student to work as a team
and improve timing. An ,in-.
dividual will learn concen-
tration and focus. If done
correctly, practicing Hyungs
will stretch and warm up
the muscles, loosen the
hamstrings, aide in breath-
ing control as well as pro-
viding an excellent cardio-
vascular workout. Hyungs
teach balance, fluidity,
form, awareness and style.

Pentecostal Holiness
Church News

HE PILOTS MY SHIP' What
a wonderful thought to-
know that we have a pilot
who takes us safely through
our lives and navigates and
directs our paths. But to of-
ten we try to live our lives
navigating and driving not
knowing the experiences to
safely make it through. Jon-
ah is an example of a
man who didn't want a pilot.
In Jonah 1: 2-3 God told Jon-
ah to "Go to the great city of
Nineveh and preach against
it, because its wickedness
has come up before me." But
Jonah ran away from the
Lorl' and boarded a ship
and headed for Tarshish.
God is trying to pilot our
ship and we keep running
from his guidance and di-
rection. Jonah 1: 4 says then
the LORD sent a great wind
on the sea, and such a vio-
lent storm arose that the,
ship threatened to break up.
God will send a great wind
to stop you, turn you
around, get you back on
track, whatever it takes. We
can't fight God. When
everything around you is
breaking apart think
about it, it might just mean
you need to stop running
from God. Jonah 1: 17- says
but the LORD provided a
great fish to swallow Jonah,
and Jonah was inside the
fish three days and three
nights. Thank God for his
mercy that He provided a
great fish to continue Jonah


to head back to where God
wanted him to be. God will
get you back to where you
need to be. You can run but
you can't hide. God has your
number.
Trust in the LORD with
all thine heart; and lean hot
unto thine own understand-
ing. In all thy ways ac-
knowledge him, and he
shall direct thy paths
(Proverbs 3: 5-6). Are you al-
lowing the Lord to pilot you
ship? Are you trying to
steer the boat yourself and
keep landing in the muck?
It's time you give up and let
Jesus take over and steer
your vessel. It's time to let
Him take the lead and take
- charge of your life. It's. time
to let GOD PILOT YOUR
SHIP You have run long
enough.
Sunday night we had a
great time in the Lord as the
choir along with many tal-
ented singers from the
church and
.community blessed us at
our first 5th Sunday sing of
2010.

On February 7th at 6pm you
are invited to attend a dra-
ma "Straight from the pig
pen" presented by a drama
team from the PHC. This is
a present day rendition of
the prodical son taken from
Luke chapter 15. We always
welcome our visitors, If you
do not attend a regular
church come and join us at
the Pentecostal Holiness
Church.

Have a blessed week.

FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH Gary Lee McCabe
NEWS


Our services today were ex-
ceptional. The Spirit was
moving among us and
could be felt by all. Both .
messages.were good and
were enjoyed by all.
. Tonight was our 5th Sun-
day Night Sing and we had
some of our singers that
had not been singing for a
long time come back and
sing for us again. What a
blessing that was. We also
had some of our young peo-
ple from our youth group
. sing and they blessed our
hearts. It's always good to
see the youth stand up anda
sing for God.

Remember that the Easter 7
Brothers will be here in
concert and holding a re-
vival for us from February
21st PM through Wednes-
day night the 24th. If you
haven't heard them in con-
cert and heard Bro. James
preach, you've truly missed
a blessing. Be sure to mark
your calendars so you don't
miss this exceptional .
group. We look forward to
them each year.

The Lafayette Baptist Asso-
ciational Sing will be Feb-
ruary 20th at Airline Bap-
tist Church between Mayo
and Branford on Highway
US 27. There is always a
wonderful program and
lots of good singing, so you
won't want to miss this.

Remember this week to
pray for the less fortunate,
the sick, the bereaved, the
ones in the hospitals and
the ones who have burdens
on their hearts. God can
and will take that burden
and give you peace with it.
We'll be looking for you
next Wed. night for prayer.
meeting and again on Sun-
day for Sunday School and
Church. Invite someone to
come with you and God will
bless you for it.


Please study the plan of
