Bondi outlaws

"Bath salts"

On January
26, 2011,
Florida At-
torney
General
Pam Bondi
deemed
"bath
salts" con-
taining psychoac-
tive substances to be a sig-
nificant threat to health and
public safety within the
State of Florida. By dele- -
gation of authority granted
under 893.035(7)(a), ES., At-
torney General Bondi added
these compounds to Flori-
da's list of controlled sub-
stances as Schedule I drugs
which makes the purchase,
possession, sale, and/or dis-
tribution a felony.

Retailers and those in pos-
session of psychoactive
"bath salts" who require as-
sistance in their lawful dis-
posal are asked to contact
their local law enforcement
agencies for assistance.
Failure to comply with this
emergency order can result
in a felony arrest as
punishable under 775.082,

On Wednes-
day afternoon
at approxi-
mately
1:30pm, Sher-
iff's deputies
responded to a
residence off
of SE 905
Street in Old
Town. Ac-
cording to the
911 call, the
caller was
having prob-
lems with her brother and
was concerned about his be-
havior. At the time of the
call, dispatchers were told
that the suspect, Richard
Yearwood, 32 years of age
from Old Town had walked
off from the residence and
deputies were given his di-
rection of travel.

Responding deputies
searched the area and were
unable to locate Yearwood.
One of the deputies then
went to the caller's home
and upon arrival observed
Yearwood standing on the
porch of the residence. He
then notified the other two
deputies of his observations
and approached Yearwood.
Yearwood was non-compli-
ant with verbal commands
to put the shovel down and
as the third deputy arrived
on scene, he charged off the
porch and began swinging
at the deputy The deputy
while stepping backward
discarded his chemical
agent and was attempting to
draw his weapon when he
fell.

Yearwood was continuing to
disregard verbal commands
to drop the shovel and once
again swung the shovel at
the deputy on the ground
only to strike the side of a

arrested and charged with

On Saturday night around
7:30pm while on patrol in
the area of SE 929 Street in
the Suwannee Gardens Sub-
division in
Old Town, a
deputy
smelled the
chemical odor
commonly as-
sociated with
the manufac-
ture of
methampheta-
mine. He
then began Smi
tracking the
source of the odor which led
him to a vacant wooded lot
in the area. Once he had lo-
cated the source, he began

he raised the
shovel again to
strike at the
deputy once
more, the second
arriving deputy
discharged his
weapon multiple
times striking
Yearwood more
than once in the
lower frontal tor-
so.

They immediately called for
EMS for Yearwood and noti-
fied their supervisors and
investigators who respond-
ed to the scene. Yearwood
was transported by Dixie
EMS to the Old Town heli-
port where he was trans-
ferred to Shands at UF by
helicopter. Investigators se-
cured the scene Of the
shooting and awaited the ar-
rival of the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement
Crime Lab and agents.

Sheriff Hatcher requested
that FDLE conduct.the
criminal aspect of the inves-
tigation into the incident to
avoid any allegations of
bias. Sheriff Hatcher has
also appointed a internal re-
view team of one deputy,
one investigator and one in-
vestigator from the State's
Attorney Office to review
the internal aspects of the
shooting incident in order
to verify that it was handled
within policy guidelines.

Yearwood has been arrested
multiple times in Dixie
County for charges ranging
from disorderly intoxication
to DUI with property dam-
age. Yearwood formerly did
two years in prison for bat-
tery on a law enforcement
officer and robbery


gree to Robbery.
Based on the in-
vestigation at
this point, it is
believed that
Brock was
aware of the
robbery taking
place and was
driving the SUV

held in the Dixie
County Jail under a
$150,000.00 bond.

during this time found a
white male, Michael Smith
42 years of age from Cross
City, lying on the
ground behind a
oak tree in an at-
tempt to hide.
Smith was or-
dered to show his
hands and was
subsequently se-
cured. In the
area and on
Smith's person,
the deputy ob-
served several items
of paraphernalia commonly
used in the smoking and
manufacture of metham-
phetamine. Smith was ar-
rested and transported to
the Dixie County Jail where
he was charged with Manu-

Cross City man arrested for

domestic battery (again)


Jesse Carlton Bennett,
50, of Cross City was.ar-
rested and charged with
domestic battery on Jan-
uary 26.


Cross City police re-
sponded to a call about a
physical altercation at
an address where they
had "responded to the ,
same address several
times for the same of- .
fense." Upon arrival, the
officer made contact
with one victim, who
was outside the resi-
dence and was "visibly
shaken." The woman
told the officer that "he's in there beating
(the other victim)."

The officer looked through the window of
the front door and saw Bennett standing
over the body of the second victim, who was
lying on the ground "face down in a defen-
sive/protective position." The officer en-
tered the home and handcuffed Bennett. The
second victim remained on the floor, "crying
and noticeably upset." When asked what
happened, Bennett reportedly told the offi-
cer that the victim "started her (expletive)
again."


EMS was called for the vic-
tims and Bennett was trans-
ported to the jail "without
incident."


Bennett has a long history of
multiple charges of battery
stemming back to 1990. Ben-
nett was charged with bat-
tery in November of 2010,
and the charges were
7. dropped. He was charged
with Felony Aggravated Bat-
tery in August of 2010 and
the charges were dropped.
He was charged with Battery
in June of 2010 and the
charges were dismissed by
the prosecutor, "Nolle prosequi," which
means "to be unwilling to pursue." He was
charged with battery in July of 2009 and the
charges were dismissed. He was charged
with battery in May of 2009, in July of 2008,
and in October of 2007 and the charges were
again dropped "Nolle prosequi." He faced
two charges of battery in March of 2004,
and domestic violence, all of which were
dropped or dismissed. He was charged in
January and April of 1990 with two battery
charges, both of which were dismissed upon
payment of court costs.


Small plane crash near Stephenson's store


At approximately 7:30pm on
Thursday night a small four
seat Cirrus SR22 plane made
an emergency landing in
northeast Dixie County just
west of SR 349 near Stephen-
son's 349 Express. The plane
is registered to Deep South
out of Crystal River, Florida
and was piloted by the com-
pany's pilot, Jesse Evans
from Sorrento, Florida. Ac-
cording to Evans, he had
been to Alabama where he
left the company's owner for
business and was on his way
back to Lady Lake when the
engine shut-down. Flying at
approximately 9000 feet, he
began to turn back to the
Cross City Airport and at-
tempted to re-start the en-


gine. This model plane is
equipped with a parachute
and once he got to approxi-
mately 2500 feet and was un-
able to restart the engine, he
deployed the emergency
parachute and the plane
landed in a field that had re-
cently undergone timber
harvesting and clearing.

Sheriff's dispatch notified
the Federal Aviation Admin-
istration and National
Transportation Safety Board
about the crash landing. A
short time later, Sheriff's of-
ficials were notified that the
NTSB would be deferring
the investigation to the FAA.
Arrangements were then
made for Sheriff's officials


to maintain security on the
plane until the FAA could
arrive on Friday At approx-
imately 3:00pm on Friday af-
ternoon the FAA field inves-
tigator completed his inves-
tigation at the scene and se-
curity was maintained until
the adjustor and salvage
company could remove the
plane Saturday.

According to the FAA repre-
sentative, although the dam-
age to the plane appeared
minimal, the actual deploy-
ment of the parachute in all
probability twisted the air-
frame thereby totaling the
plane. The estimated dollar
loss of the aircraft is ap-
proximately $200,000.00.

The citizenship controversy
I was never totally drawn into the controversy about Presi-
dent Barack Obama's citizenship. The arguments on both
sides have been rather dogmatic. It seemed like the over-
the-top right-wingers would insist that he was born in
Kenya even if their elder members had been in Hawaii in
1961 and witnessed his birth then and there. On the other
hand, the political left would swear that he was born in
Hawaii even if certain of them had witnessed his birth in
Kenya--plus, they would insist that it didn't make any dif-
ference if he wasn't a natural-born citizen just because
that's what the Constitution specifically requires of our
presidents.

What kept the controversy,p;livein :my mind was thefact.
that the Obama campaign did so little to refute the accusers
during the 2008 presidential campaign, then acted like it
suddenly became a non-issue after Obama won the election.
But the major conservative commentators had dismissed
the charge, so it looked like what was left was the muted
mutterings of the lunatic fringe.

Then came a startling revelation from the governor of
Hawaii, or at least someone claiming to have interviewed
him on the subject. A "celebrity journalist" by the name of
Mike Evans at first reported that he had interviewed
Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie, who had told him that
the official record of Obama's birth couldn't be found. After
which, the plot thickened when Evans confessed that he ac-
tually never got that information from Governor Abercrom-
bie.

Why, then, did Evans say he got this info from the Gover-
nor? Evans said it was "a mistake" he had made when relat-
ing the information to one of several media outlets, when
the real story was that no one at either of Honolulu's two
hospitals could verify the authenticity of Obma's claim to
have been born there, and the Governor hadn't made that
observation after all.

I don't know about you, but that sounds a lot like "crawfish-
ing" to me. Or maybe, "trying to put the toothpaste back in
the tube." And lest the metaphors mislead you, I'm not con-
vinced that Evans "merely misspoke" to one of the media
outlets he contacted: nor am I convinced that the Governor
of Hawaii doesn't share some honest concerns about
Barack Obama's actual nation of birth, even though he
doesn't want to admit it publicly.

I've seen some Internet images of what are supposedly au-
thentic documents which the "birthers" claim establish
that Obama was born in Kenya and was registered as the
son of his Islamic father, who was a citizen of that country,
after which his American mother took him to Hawaii and
arranged for his birth announcement to appear in local
newspapers as though he had been born there. Certainly
not beyond the realm of possibility however it's entirely
too easy to "photo-shop" documents for this to be consid-
ered conclusive evidence.

On the other hand, the existence of a "long form" birth cer-
tificate-attesting to Obama's birth in Hawaii remains in
doubt. If Hawaiian officials want to respect someone's pri-
vacy by not making the document available to anyone who
just happens to be curious, that's fine. But why shouldn't
Obama want the document made public, especially since
the controversy doesn't seem to be going away any time
soon?

Arizona is considering a law that will make a birth certifi-
cate necessary if you want to vote or run for public office.
How novel. And those radicals even want immigration laws
enforced! For that matter, you need a birth certificate to get
a driver's license in Florida these days. And not to be out-
done, some politicians in Hawaii are proposing legislation
that would make copies of birth certificates available to
anyone for $100 each. Would these be certified copies of the
"real thing," which is to say the long form which allegedly
is now in the archives under lock and key? No one seems to
know.

But at least we know that some enterprising Hawaiian
politicians have dreamed up a scheme to make a fast buck
with the controversy, and that's about as much useful infor-
mation as we're getting from the Obama White House.


Sby Kathy McKinney,
This past week has been really, really stressful for me. It's
not just the soccer season and karate classes overlapping,
it's too much appraisal work, too little time and money, and
well, all the other stuff that's going on; probably just like it
is at your house, too. I should have written you a column
.about what's going on in Egypt, or food riots in Tunisia, the
price of gas, or my cop friends who are at risk from crazy
violence and even crazier lawsuits, or the jobs we're going to
lose when Foodland converts to a Say-A-Lot, or any of the

My dog Fuzzy sure isn't worried. We call then he rubs hi
him Fuzzy.but his real name is Fezzig, af-
ter the gentle giant from The Princess tailored clothe
Bride. Fuzzy doesn't let stuff like impend- say n
ing economic doom bother him. He sits on
the floor next to my feet, just happy to be For the good
here, close to me. When I get up to go to the
kitchen for more coffee, there he is, can buy mor
padding along behind me, staring up at my never a fr
face, probably wondering if I'm going to
drop anything yummy Even when he real-
izes that I'm not going to throw a piece of
pupperoni his way, he's still happy, and follows me back to
sit down again, with a big happy, fluffy sigh and a tail-
thump, at my feet. He lives in the moment, content just to be
with his family We should all be a little bit more like dogs.

We got Fuzzy after Brandi and Karen found him under
Karen's house. He was just a baby, wet, crying, and terrified
during a storm. (And of course, they had me, the dog sucker,
on speed dial, and of course, I said, yeah, I'll take him.) He
was so little! He grew out of it into a huge white fluffball,
living up to his Andre the Giant namesake. Yet, like most
big dogs, he still thinks he's a lapdog and doesn't under-
stand why you don't want him in the house, riding in the car
or sitting on your lap on the couch. He's just a walking,
barking, cat-chasing, garbage-eating bundle of pure,
unconditional love on four paws.

I talk to hi
lonesome like;


I'd like to be able to tell you that he pays for his dog chow by
being a fierce guardian of my house when I'm gone, but,
well....not so much. He looks really scary, and he'll bark up a
storm, but it's all talk. I had some work done the other day
when I wasn't home and Daniel said that Fuzzy just followed
him around and licked him after he walked into the house.
Don't be getting any ideas about robbing me, though, be-
cause my elderly chihuahua Sissy will take your leg off at
the knee. Well, she would if she had more than a few teeth
left. Aw, heck, if you come over to rob me, could you at least
clean up while you're here? Maybe a load of laundry or a
m when I'm load of dishes before you boost the cheap
Wal-Mart silverware? Ask the big white dog,
and I'm sure he'll show you where it is. Thanks.


Fuzzy always likes me. That is, I think, the
finest thing about a dog. When I have one of
those days when I feel like a total fraud, an
incompetent, a friendless loser, I can come
home and Fuzzy still thinks I'm the greatest
thing since Alpo-in-a-can. Dogs don't care if
you did a good job today, if you said some-
thing stupid and inept, if you didn't sell an
ad, if you made a typo on the front page, or if
you're not in the clique with the "important"
people. To them, you ARE the important peo-
ple. Maybe that's why you see so many home-
less people with dogs. Even though a home-
less guy might occupy the bottom of the so-
cial pyramid, his dog still thinks he's the
King of the Universe. Where else in the world


is nose on my
es, but I never
aught threat.
Lord knows I
*e clothes, but
iend like that.
yton Wedgefarth


can you get that kind of affirmation?


Your cat? HA! Don't make me laugh. To your cat, you are a
servant, a provider of endless tuna, an opener of doors, and
a ear-scratcher. They tolerate your presence because there's
something in it for them. They do not love you. Your dog
adores you, in a way that few humans ever will. Your dog
will throw himself, all two pounds of him, against a rabid
coyote, a burglar, or a rattlesnake for you without a second
thought for his own safety He will follow you into your fan-
cy stilt riverhouse, or into your cardboard box under the
bridge without hesitation or complaint. Dogs like Fuzzy
don't worry about anything at all, because they seem to
know that in the end, everything will be all right if you're
there. They have perfect faith. Maybe we should stop talking
to our dogs when we're down, and start listening.

"Knock-Knock?" Who's

you're not getting' ready for
another snow storm today!!
Wow, symptoms of Spring
fever are in the air all
around our counties, but
don't put away your over-
coats and sweaters just yet.
We have been known to have
frost into the month of
March, but let's be positive
and take advantage of the
warming trend. Let's see
who can be the first one to
spy a red maple or a red bud
in bloom. You may have to
look extra hard amongst the
red berries of the hollies
and the camellias, however,
the first one who claims the
sighting will win a free Hol-
lie tree at A&K Nursery do-
nated graciously by Ms.
Karen. (Thanks Ms. Karen!)

I rode by a local building
where they had recently
chopped all of their azaleas
to nubs. I felt so bad and re-
gret to inform them that
azaleas bloom on old growth
and need to be trimmed
from late Spring until late
Summer only, hence, they
will not see any flowers this
year! Now IS the time to till
your garden and mix in
some hydrated lime to con-
trol the pesky insects from
hatching. Make sure that
you use the lime 2-4 weeks
before you plant so as not to
burn the seedlings or seeds


Youth Waterfowl Hunting

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) and the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service es-
tablished Feb. 5-6 as Youth
Waterfowl Hunting Days.

These select days are a great
opportunity to get young peo-
ple outdoors and to introduce
them to the excitement of
waterfowl hunting.

The statewide, two-day sea-
son allows children younger
than 16 years old with adult
supervision to hunt water-

you want to sprout. If you
like to top off the formula
for your soil with manure,
try to avoid the FRESH
stuff, because it is too hot
(high in ureaic acid) and
will burn the sensitive root
hairs of the newly germi-
nated seedlings.

This is also the time of year
I like to warn our readers to
beware of purchasing annu-
als and other flowering
shrubs that have been
grown in hot houses down
south and shipped up to our
area. They may look good
while on display or even
survive a few days in your
garden, but they need time
to adapt to their new envi-
ronment. Sometimes the
plants actually go into an ir-
reversible shock and you
think it is something you
did wrong in the process.

The Gardener's Rule of
Thumb is to buy plants that
have been raised and grown
in our own climate and that
are designated for our very
own agricultural zone(s):
zones 8a, 8b or 9/10 only
along our coastline).

At the risk of sounding
crass, when you think of all
that is going on in Egypt,
Australia, Yemen, and the
ongoing misery in Haiti,
we have so much to be
thankful for!!!

ship.'

JV, Lady Bears beat Trenton Football Banquet


by Angel Lee

On a cool and rainy day, the
Bears basketball teams
loaded the bus and hit the
road to take on the Branford
Bucs. Things started off
good for the Bears as the JV
team took the floor, and by
halftime, were up by a score
of 20-7. The JV Bears would
go on to win by a final score
of 36-17. The
Lady Bears
wouldn't see '
such luck,
as they were
beaten by ?
the Lady
Bucs by a
score of 56-
19. The Var-
sity Bears
also had the
same fate as
the girls, as
they lost 45-
33 to the
Bucs.


On Friday
night, the
Bears played
host to the
Trenton
Tigers, and honored our Se-
niors in the last regular sea-
son home game. The hon-
ored Seniors were Cheer-
leaders: Sam Fowler and
Ariel Neiss, Lady Bear Play-
ers: China Dawson and
Tekeyah Clark and Varsity
Bear Players: Michael West,
Finnix Jackson, and AJ
Yarrell. The JV teams once
again got things going as


they took to the court. The
JV Bears held a small lead
at the end of the first, but
by halftime had opened the
game up a little, and took a
27-16 lead into the locket
room. The JV Bears would
go on and take the victory
over the Tigers, winning by
a score of 52-43.


The Lady Bears then took
their turn on
S. the court as
they also
played the
Tigers. The
Lady Bears
took control,
and took a 22-
,' 15 lead into
halftime. The
Lady Bears
would keep
the lead and
never look
back as they
took the vic-
tory 42-29.

Now it's up to
the Varsity
Boys to keep
the winning
momentum
going. At the end of the
first, the Tigers held a 10
point lead over the Bears,
but they would fight back
early in the second quarter,
only for the Tigers to take
another 10 point lead into
halftime. The Bears contin-
ued to fight hard, but in the
end, the Tigers came away
with the victory, defeating
the Bears 43-38.

On Monday Night, the Bears
football team gathered up as
a team one more time, as
they held their annual Foot-
ball Banquet. After enjoying
a great meal, everyone head-
ed over to the auditorium for
the awards ceremony. Coach
Brent was the MC of the
night, and got things going
by first thanking the many
people it takes to make a sea-
son so successful. Mrs.
Locke was also present, and
she spoke briefly on three
valuable lessons the boys
learned on the football field.
That Talent is never enough,
you need other people, and
how to get back up once
you've been knocked down.
Coach Brent thanked a few
more people for the hard
work they've done all year.
The QB Club (who buys the
boys cleats, they put on the
football camp, gets the boys
meals, the food sponsors,
etc....) he also thanked Doug
& Lisa Anderson for helping
with camp, Joel Ward (ban-
ners and film) as well as the
announcers, spotters and
"Chain Crew". Emily
Woodall then took the stage
and recognized her hard
working Cheerleaders. The
JV Coaches, PJ Hope and
Tracy Collins then took the
stage to present the JV team
with certificates. The JV
boys worked, played, and
practiced very hard this year.
The mic was handed back to
coach Brent as he got on to
the Varsity team awards.
Coach Brent stated that in
the 12 years he's been here,
they have made it to the play-
offs 8 of those years, and 5 of
those years they were dis-
trict champions. Starting off,
Brent called up some of the
JV players who moved up to
the tough, hard playing level
of varsity football. Those
players were: Iyle Lamar,
Cody Mitchell, Buddy How-
ell, Eli Long, and Logan
Miller. Here's a list of the

MILITARY MOMENTS WITH TANK:
SEIGE OF RHE SAHN

On January 21,began one of the
bloodiest battles of the Vietnam
war.
The site was the Khe Sahn Com-
bat Base (KSCB), located in the
northwestern Quang Tri Provi-
dence. KSCB had the most north-
western airfield in South Viet-
nam. The base was located on
Route 9, which ran from the east
.coast into Laos. The Marines
mission at Khe Sahn was to
block the North Vietnamese in-
filtration across the DMZ and ad-
vance into Laos to cut off the vi-
tal Ho Chi Minh Trail.
In the fall of 1967, it was discov-
ered that the People's Army of
Vietnam (PAVN)was moving ma-
jor forces into the Khe Sahn
area. In January 1968,the PAVN
had ambushed a supply convoy
and completely surrounded Khe
Sahn. General Westmoreland,
Commander of US forces in Viet-
nam, ordered the Marines to dig
in and hold their position the
best that they could.
The KSCB was manned by the
26th Marine Division, under the
command of Col. David Lownds.
30,000 PAVN troops attacked the
base being held by only 6,000
Marines. For 77 days The KSCB
and its outposts, were under con-
stant ground, artillery, mortar,
and rocket attacks.
After much ground fighting,
the US began what is considered
the most concentrated applica-
tion of aerial firepower in the
history of warfare. Operation
"Niagara" was ,launched by the
7th Air Force, a massive bom-
bardment campaign. Finally, af-
ter 77 days the PAVN abandoned
the attack and fled into Laos. Af-
ter General Westmoreland left

The seige at Khe Sahn was a test
of Marines endurance and show-
cased US Airpower.
The importance of the battle and
the success of the Marines was
shown in May 1968, when Presi-


dent Johnson awarded the 26th
Marine Regiment the Presiden-
tial Unit Citation for its bravery
at Khe Sahn. To this day, it is
still debated as to the purpose of
the attack. Was it an intention to
fight a decisive battle or was it
merely to distract Gen. West-
moreland in the weeks leading
up the Tet Offensive?

Obituaries and Faith


Lynda Kay Barber


Lynda was born May 31st 1952 to J.T. and Lucille Watson
who survived her. She was the oldest daughter and is sur-
vived by her brother Ricky Wayne and James William
Watson.

On March 21st, Lynda married Jerry Larue Barber who
survived her. Lynda and Jerry had two children, Shellie
Jo Fowler and Jeremy Justin Barber who survived her.
Shellie and Justin gave Lynda and Jerry eight grand chil-
dren: Lawton (age 6), Aidan and Aidriana (age 4), Jace
(age 3), Tyler (age 14), Harley (age 11), Montana (age 5),
and Waylon (age 4), as well as two step grand children:
Caleb (age 17) and Cody (21). Lynda was born in Hatties-
burg Mississippi, but had lived in Dixie County since the
age of 7.

Lynda's favorite things in life were reading good mys-
tery novel, watching Nascar races (Dale Earnhardt was
her favorite driver), hunting and fishing, traveling (espe-
cially to the Smoky Mountains during the fall to watch
the leaves change), and watching the Seminoles play on
Saturday But more than any of these things, she enjoyed
spending time with her husband, children and grand chil-
dren. You'd rather fight a bear with a stick than mess
with one of her children or grand children. Lynda was an
active member of the Scrub Creek Baptist Church, where
she was married as well. She served in many capacities
including song leader, Sunday School director, Sunday
School teacher, VBS director, as well as many other roles.
Lynda graduated from Dixie County High School in 1970
and she eared an associate's degree in Accounting from
the Lake City Community College. She retired from the
Dixie County System in 2002 and also served as the book
keeper for the Dixie Hunt Club from it's conception until
2000. After retirement she spent most of her time at home
enjoying the company of her children, grand children
and husband.

Services for Mrs. Barber were held at 10:00 am Monday,
January 31, 2011 at Scrub Creek Baptist Church with Rev.
Archie Knowles and Rev. John Horbert officiating. Inter-
ment followed in the Church Cemetery Daniels Funeral
Home and Crematory, Inc., of Live Oak and Branford, FL
were in charge of arrangements.

State Fire Marshal, Small
County Coalition and FACT
Volunteer Firefighter Initiative
achieves major changes in
Volunteer Firefighter training
program.

Changes making the state
volunteer firefighter training
program more accessible and
volunteer friendly were an-
nounced earlier this month.
by State Fire Marshal Julius
Halas at a meeting of the
State Fire Chiefs Association
held on January 20th in Day-
tona Beach.

The changes resulted from a
Task Force convened to eval-
uate concerns expressed by
the members of the Small
County Coalition to the State
Fire Marshal's Office. The
task force made up of repre-
sentatives of the State Fire
Marshal's Office, members of
the Small County Coalition,
and other stakeholders was
convened with the objective
of finding ways to make the
training program for volun-
teers more accessible, less
costly, less time-consuming,
and more cotent/assessment
appropriate. The changes re-
sulting from the meetings
are as follows -

Courses can be taken on-
line rather than incurring
expensive travel and time

Performance assessment
will be done through obser-
vation of skill performance
rather than assessed through
written exams;
End of Course Written
examination is eliminated
based on observed perfor-
mance of skills required
making participation more
volunteer friendly; and,
Scholarships available to
pay for training for volun-
teers in FACT member coun-
ties.

In speaking to the Florida
Fire Chiefs Association,
Chris Doolin consultant to
the Small County Coalition
thanked State Fire Marshal
Julius Halas for supporting
the effort and stressed the all
of the changes were made in
a way that did not compro-
mise safety or fire.fighting
standards. dceSafety is our
first priority! The members
of the Small County Coali-
tion support training that
underscores safety, however,
we are pleased that the pro-
gram has changed to be more
efficient and volunteer
friendly These changes save
money, save time, increase
volunteers in our small coun-
ties and will keep property
and lives of Floridians pro-
tected.aE Doolin also
thanked the Florida Associa-
tion of Counties Trust for do-
nating $16,000 to offset the
cost of training in FACT
member counties. daceThe
changes in the training pro-
gram and the availability of
scholarships made through
the Florida Association of
Counties Trust will definite-
ly be good news for our
small, rural volunteer fire
departments that struggle
with raising funds for basic
equipment and operations.
The FACT scholarships were
spearheaded by Nassau
County Commissioner Barry
Holloway and Putnam Coun-
ty Commission Chip Laibl.

Members of the task force par-
ticipating from small counties
included: Commissioners Paul
Beck (Glades); Roy Ellis (Madi-
son); Hines Boyd (Jefferson);
Barry Holloway and Danny
Leeper (Nassau),Warren Yea-
ger (Gulf County); Former
Commissioner Lilly Rooks
(Levy); EMS Director Tim
Alexander (Dixie); County
Manager Ron McQueen
(Gilchrist); County Manager
Allen Cherry (Madison); Joe
Spratt (Former member House
of Representatives
Hendry/Highlands/Glades)
and Chris Doolin (Consultant
to the Small County Coalition).
