Old Town man

arrested in assault

Pulls handgun on victim, kills tent


On Wednesday February 2,
2011, Sher-
iff's deputies
responded to
a residence
on NE 463
Avenue in
reference to
a distur-
bance.

While re-
sponding,
they were
told that one
of the subjects was armed
with a handgun. Upon ar-
rival, they found Albert Em-
den at the home of the com-
plainant and victim. Dur-
ing the course of their in-
vestigation on the scene,
they learned that there had
been a previous altercation
between Emden and the vic-
tim at Emden's residence.
The victim then returned to
his residence when Emden
arrived later and confronted
him. During this confronta-
tion, Emden allegedly


pulled a handgun on the vic-
tim in a threat-
ening manner.
The victim was
able to disarm
Emden and gave
the handgun to
his girlfriend to
secure inside the
home until law
enforcement ar-
rived. While Em-
den was driving
through the vic-
tim's yard, he
drove over a tent that was
set-up for the victim's small
children to play in.

After arriving on the scene
and taking statements from
the occupants and witnesses
that were present, Albert
Emden, 55 years of age from
Old Town was arrested and
transported to the Dixie
County Jail where he was
charged with Aggravated
Assault and Criminal Mis-
chief.

At Thursday morning's reg-
ular County Commission
meeting, Phil Bishop of
North Florida Professional
Services announced bid
winners for the Gornto
Springs project. Bryan Co.
was the low bidder at
$78,088, but Bishop said that
he had additional informa-
tion for the Board to consid-
er. He said that the retention
ponds were included in the
contract, but that the county
had planned to do the grad-
ing and other jobs that went
with that to save money
Bryan Co. offered to do the
grading, too for $14,500 in
addition to the other con-
tract. Bishop said that the
"short time frame makes
sense to get him to do the
whole project excluding the
lime rock." Commissioner
Higginbotham made a mo-
tion to approve that, but
Commissioner Marvin Hunt
protested, saying that he
"can't justify this without
asking the other person who
bid on the project. I don't
want to hold the project up,
either. There are a lot of
people who won't bid on
these projects because of
the way these things have
been done in the past."

Bishop replied that change
orders are common practice.
County Manager Mike Cas-
sidy added that "We can
move that road and spend
the money on playground
equipment."

Commissioner HIgginboth-
am referenced the way
county resources are over-
booked, saying "How are we
gonna do that? We are

stretched," and made the
motion to accept Bryan Co.
to do the additional work
and the original bid and the
additional work was ap-
proved in two separate mo-
tions. Commissioner Hunt
was the sole dissenting vote.

Mike Cassidy requested a
motion to appoint Melvin
Corbin as temporary Super-
intendent of the Road De-
partment starting February
4th to replace retiring
Howard Reed. Billy Laws
was also approved as tempo-
rary Rock Mine Supervisor
until May first.

County Attorney Jennifer
Ellison reported that the
county and insurance com-
pany had made settlements
on the Snedecker-Byrd law-
suits for $100,000 each, and
reported that the proposed
public records policy was
not ready for presentation
yet.

Commissioner Higginboth-
am related that the septic,
tank inspection issue "looks
like it will be left to local of-
ficials, but it's nothing to go
to sleep on," and quoted
Mark Twain's "No man's
life, liberty or property is
safe while legislature is in
session."

Commissioner Hatch pro-
posed that the County start
a Facebook page, adminis-
tered by the Commission's
secretary, Mellisa Long. The
Commissioners would be
permitted to read com-
ments, but not to reply. The
motion was passed.

In case you were wondering...
There are a couple of reasons why you might want to post-
pone that trip to California next summer. For one, Governor
Jerry Brown will probably have toll gates set up at all roads
going in and out of the state by then in a futile effort to
raise enough money to pay an installment on the interest
on the state's monumental debt. And in case you were won-
dering what the other reason is, it is the price of gasoline.
And don't think it would be cheaper to fly, even if you don't
mind being x-rayed, strip-searched and subjected to body
cavity inspections, because commercial aircraft use petrole-
um based fuel, which increases in price proportionally to
gasoline for your car and is likewise proportionally reflect-
ed in airline ticket prices. Besides, staying home really ain't
all that bad.

As for why gasoline prices can be expected to increase sub-
stantially by next summer, consider the reason being given
for the most recent upward modification in the price of
crude oil: The Suez Canal might be closed as a result of the
violence in Egypt resulting from efforts to drive Hosni
Mubarak out of office, perhaps to be replaced by some radi-
cal Muslim despot or an unstable aggregation of feuding Is-
lamic fundamentalist factions. Could it happen? Sure, but
the point is, it might not, and meanwhile nothing' ain't hap-
pened yet! So while we're waiting to see what might happen,
Wall Street speculators are getting rich on the speculations
of "experts" who probably don't have a clue as to what's go-
ing to happen to the Suez Canal. I might add that we'd all be
a lot better off if the British had retained control of that
big ditch, but I can't very well cuss the Brits out for doing
what Jimmy Carter did with our Panama Canal.

Now, here's,an even bigger reason why we can't expect
gasoline prices to go anywhere but up anytime soon: The
Obama administration is aggressively thwarting oil explo-
ration in even the remotest Arctic regions. Ever hear of the
Beaufort Sea? I didn't think so. Neither have I since I
flunked geography in the fourth grade. Anyway, it's so far
north that the residents of coastal extreme northern Alas-
ka who can afford to travel go to Siberia during the winter
months to escape the cold weather. The Beaufort Sea is
named for Sir Francis Beaufort, who was a French-Irish hy-
drographer (look it up, this ain't a dictionary and it ain't
Google) who was knighted for not wasting a lot of the
British Empire's money on vacations in Hawaii. As His
Majesty observed at the time, "Only a truly dedicated pub-
lic servant would spend his summers in that God-forsaken
place." The Beaufort Sea thaws briefly in a few places in
late summer. Tourism has always been in single digits, ex-
cept for years when nobody showed up.

But the Lord did not forsake this region at all. Below the
frozen tundra (not talking about Lambeau Field) there lie
gazillions of barrels of crude oil and more natural gas than
the annual baked bean festival in Hamtramck, Michigan.
Shell Oil shelled out big bucks to lease some land in the
area and wanted to start drilling, but the Washington bu-
reaucracy said no. The so-called "Environmental Protection
Agency" (EPA) wants to wait till next year before allowing
Shell to drill. They want more time to explore the possibili-
ty of atmospheric contamination. A few oil wells where
even the'smart caribou and polar bears rarely venture due
to the frigid temperatures and the biggest threat to the at-
mosphere is that the air itself might freeze, and these bozo
bureaucrats are worried about air pollution from a few oil
wells?

Even the news of Shell Oil getting an OK to start drilling
on American turf would have a'chilling effect on OPEC and
the Wall Street speculators, but that's apparently not what
the Obama administration wants. That would make it more
difficult to rationalize government subsidies for things like
growing corn to make ethyl alcohol, then mixing it with
gasoline to make it unfit for human consumption. Or
putting up "wind farms" to generate electricity at more
than what nuclear would cost.

If "green" energy can be produced more efficiently than
what we now get from carbon-based fuels, the private sector
will find a way without any help from government if gov-
ernment will just get the hell out of the way--and mean-
while get out of the way of drilling for the resource we
know will work and which we have plenty of where Shell
oil wants to go and nobody else does.


1 ICE scores touchdown for the NFL


b by Kathy McKinney,;

From the Washington Times: US. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement (ICE) agents, assisted by federal, state and local
law enforcement authorities, have seized more than 36,000
phony Super Bowl-related items nationwide along with other
counterfeit goods worth $3.56 million including $554,280 in
bogus goods in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The law enforce-
ment initiative, dubbed "Operation Interception," began Jan.

Dear Editor: December 2010

On December 12, 2010, President
Barack H. Obama signed into
law the Healthy, Hunger-Free
Kids Act of 2010 (Public Law
111-296), which reauthorized the
Child Nutrition and WIC Pro-
grams. The passage of this Pub-
lic Law will provide historic
changes in child nutrition.

While supportive of measures
to improve the health and nutri-
tion of children and families is
important, this particular legis-
lation came at a cost that is un-
acceptable to many The
Healthy, Hungey-Free Kids Act
cuts $2.2 billion from SNAP
(Food Stamp Program). At a
time when one in seven Ameri-
cans is living in poverty, this is
unacceptable.

The $4.5 billion legislation
passed was required to be cost
neutral and had to identify the
offsets. Offsets are used to iden-
tify decreased spending in exist-
ing programs to pay for new ini-
tiatives. For this legislation,
the offsets are an overhaul of
the SNAP-Ed program, a nutri-
tion education program offered
to SNAP participants and eligi-
ble SNAP participants, and a re-
duction of SNAP benefits to
participants.

It is not a question of food
stamps or school meals, but a
critical need for both. Reducing
the food budgets of low-income
families only forces them to
rely on low-quality, low cost
foods and more reliance on
emergency food organizations.
Reducing funds from successful
nutrition education programs
that empower families to main-
tain a healthy diet on a food
stamp budget compounds the
problem. In Florida, SNAP par-
ticipation numbers are increas-
ing dramatically:

In the early 90's rural county
Extension offices in North
Florida petitioned the Universi-
ty of Florida to bring Nutrition
Education to our communities
as a sister to the Expanded Food
and Nutrition Program
(EFNEP) available to larger ur-
ban areas. The result was the
Family Nutrition Program a
SNAP-Ed partnership between
local County Extension Offices,
Local School Boards, University
of Florida, and The Federal
Food Stamp Administration.

The Dixie/Gilchrist Family Nu-
trition Program (FNP) began in
1994 as a matching grant. The
Dixie County Extension Office
provided researched based edu-
cational programs to daycare
centers, HeadStart, Senior Cen-
ters, and our School Districts.

We need to be clear that this
was a matching grant and was
at no cost to the local citizens of
Dixie or Gilchrist Counties.
The way the program worked
Swas an agreement was made
with our local School Districts
so that for every hour a school
teacher taught nutrition educa-
tion, the Federal Food Stamp
Program would match a portion
of their salary This money was
then given back to the teachers
in the form of nutritious
snacks, learning materials, and
information for parents. As well
as providing jobs for 5 Dixie &
Gilchrist residents. These pro-
gram assistance worked close-
ly with our teachers, daycare
centers, seniors, public library,
and Headstart programs to en-
sure our citizens understood
how to shop wisely, balance food
budget, and select a healthy
meal plan.

Thanks to the dedicated efforts
of our local teachers, program
assistants, and community part-
ners our program grew. Howev-
er, the passage of Public Law
111-296 everything quickly
changed and we were blind-
sided with devastating funding
cuts.

So Why Should We Care?

Besides the reduction food


stamps benefits to participants,
a critical component of this
Public Law requires school
boards and entities like our day-
care centers, senior centers and
Headstart Programs to provide
SNAP-Ed Programming.

With the SNAP funding cuts
across the state the employees
of the UF/IFAS Extension Fam-
ily Nutrition Progtam (FNP),
educators who have dedicated
themselves to providing nutri-
tion education for SNAP partic-
ipants and SNAP eligible chil-
dren and families and being ter-
minated. The schools, agencies
and organizations that depend
on their expertise and high
quality programs are devastat-
ed. These strong partnerships
were built over time on trust
and respect. In schools state-
wide FNP is teaching the prin-
cipals of healthy eating and in-
creased physical activity, the el-
ements of the proposed Nutri-
tion Education and Obesity Pre-
vention Grant Program.

The Dixie/Gilchrist Family Nu-
trition Program (FNP) was noti-
fied at 11:30 a.m. on 1 Feb 2011
with 3 hours notification our 5
employees were terminated.
The 5 women who lost their
jobs were funded at no cost to
the county, 3 are college stu-
dents and 2 had young children
at home.

Without our local program our
citizens and local school sys-
tems will carry the financial
burden of providing SNAP-Edu-
cation.

We appreciate the efforts that
have been put forward by our
community educators towards
nutritional programs in the
classroom and the hard dedicat-
ed work ethics of our program
assistants who lost their jobs.

We are asking that you join us
in advocating for continued
funding for SNAP-Ed at 2011
spending levels. Sadly, we have
many more unemployed work-
ers in Florida as a result of the
lack of logical planning. In the
words of Lao Tzu, "Give a man
a fish and you feed him for a
day Teach a man to fish and
you feed him for a lifetime."

sprawl, water shortages, rising
energy demand and higher tax-
es, it comes down to growing
population numbers. When I
moved into Florida in 1962 the
state population was around sev-
en million. We are now over
eighteen million. On Earth Day
1970 the U.S. population was
about 208 million. We are now
pushing 312 million despite the
successful Stop at Two family
size that American born women
achieved in the early '70s. The
2010 Census count revealed that
we added 27 million people to the
population in the decade of the
1990s.

The tremendous growth in U.S.
population has been fueled by
several immigration policy
changes that Congress thrust
upon us since 1965. Uncontrolled
illegal entries and way above
historical levels of legal immi-
gration have caused our U.S. pop-
ulation explosion.

If nothing is done to fix our im-
migration nightmare, the U.S.
Census Bureau projects a popu-
lation of 439 million by 2050. Yet
population realities are being ig-
nored by our elected officials,
both federal and state. Our major
environmental organizations are
also ignoring these realities. You
know why Growth makes lots of
money for lots of corporations.
More consumers means more
profits.

All environmentally and fiscally
oriented citizens should inform
themselves on the basics of how
we are growing and what we can
do to steer our ship in a new di-
rection. Think about where we
would be now if Congress had
not made these devastating poli-
cy changes. If we had main-
tained our traditional levels of
legal immigration at 250,000 an-
nually, and the two-child average
fertility continued since 1970,
and we had strong border and in-
terior enforcement against ille-
gal entries, our 2000 population
would have been 243 million, lev-
eling off at 255 million and then
starting a slow decline by 2030.

To help reduce Florida's popula-
tion numbers, you can join the
effort of Floridians for Immigra-
tion Enforcement (FLIMEN) to
pass E-Verify legislation in 2011.
Remove the jobs magnet and the
700,000 illegal aliens in Florida
will self deport. If we can pass
an Arizona 1070 type of bill that
would enable our police agencies
to verify legal status in the
course of their patrolling, we
could also put a stop to taxpayer
funded benefits to illegals that
cost Florida taxpayers $5.2 bil-
lion in 2009. As Roy Beck of
NumbersUSA says, "If our im-
migration policies make you an-
gry, don't get mad at immigrants,
get mad at Congress."

"A Walk in the Garden" -
Special Spring Edition 2011


Now that the infamous
Super "snow" Bowl is histo-
ry, we can get back to reali-
ty. Congratulations are in
order to Cross City's very
own Nick Collins, his ac-
complishments and the vic-
torious Packers.

Over the past several years
of writing this column, one
of the most popular ques-
tions has been about plant
food / fertilizers. The
first thing we need to under-
stand is that all plants re-
quire: water, food and sun-
shine as well
as being
placed in a C
non-hostile
non-toxic envi-
ronment to
survive. (No /
different than
humans.
HUH!)

Most people.
get the part
about the need
'for WATER.
Moist soil is
generally good; avoid the
soaked, drenched and water
logged which
leads to overwatering and
oftentimes kills the plant.
FOOD /FERTLIZERS: here
is where it gets a little
tricky The main thing to
remember is that plants
NEED food from either a
natural source or artificial-
ly provided by you and me.
Let me share an example:
you want to plant some aza-
leas around the big oak tree
in your front yard. One
thing to consider is yvhere
are they going to get their
food?

Naturally, our soil in this re-
gion is sandy and relatively
void of natural nurishment.
Add to this the fact that that
big oak has an extensive
root system that has eaten
up whatever WAS in the soil
and is presently hogging all
of the rain water, moisture
and any new organic food

that may be available. So
what can you do? Find out
about your plants before
you purchase. Azaleas are
tough, they do not need
too much water once they
are established, nor do they
need lots of sunshine; (par-
tial shade is their prefer-
ence). Azaleas are acid lov-
ing soil feeders, so the de-
caying oak leaves and near-
by pine needles will
provide good natural nutri-
tion.

Planting them close to the
trunk of the big oak may
not be a good idea, however,
it can be done. Bring in
some good rich
soil and create a
planting box full
-7 ,- of food to get
them
started. If you
.. want to add arti-
ficial fertilizers,
look for those
That are labeled
for gardenias,
blueberries, hol-
lies and azaleas;
all
acid loving
species. Natural
fertilizers include the pine
bark, pine chips, pine nee-
dles and oak leaves. Animal
manures are great, just
make sure that they are
cured and dried so as not to
burn the roots of
the plants.

Next week we will address
the difference between all of
the types of artificial fertil-
izers that are on the market.
Just in time for you
to be successful with your
Spring feeding season com-
ing up.

Remember to give thanks to
our servicemen, law en-
forcement officers, emer-
gency service personnel and
volunteer firefighters.
Attend the church of your
choice so you can reinforce
your thankful spirit. "Give a
plant sow a friendship!"

God bless, Art Wyckoff

Reminder: Selling or
buying game online is
illegal

Investigators with the Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC)
are seeing more instances of
people buying or selling
wild game meat online thesd
days, so they have been
cracking down on cyber-vio-
lators.

"It is illegal to sell or pur-
chase game meat online,"
said Lt. George Wilson, head
of the FWC's Internet
Crimes Unit. People often do
so through online advertise-
ments, unknowingly break-
ing the law.

"We are running into this.
quite frequently in our In-
ternet Crimes Unit," Wilson


said. "People are posting
ads, asking to buy meat,
from deer and ducks, for ex-
ample."

A popular new pet-
diet may be escalating the
problem. The diet, referred
to as the "prey model," calls
for hormone-free, natural
meat for dogs. This leads pet
owners to look for wild
game meat, often on the In-
ternet.

"Not only is this a vi-
olation, it is also a safety
concern for people who pur-
chase wild game meat on-
line for themselves or their
pets," Wilson said. "People
who purchase the meat
don't know the sanitary con-
ditions in which it was
processed.'" To report
wildlife law violations, visit
MyFWC.com/Law/Alert or
call 888-404-FWCC (3922).

New Charter School

Now Taking

Enrollment

Applications

Beginning February 14,
2011, the Kinder Cub. School,
Inc. will begin accepting ap-
plications for any kinder-
garten age child (5 years old
by Sept. 1, 2011).

The Kinder Cub School is lo-
cated in Cross City and
shares its home with the .
Dixie Cub House. The Char-
ter School is a free public
school which must serve
students as any other public
school. Several differences
including smaller class size
(1:10 = 1 adult per 10 chil-
dren), the use of varying as-
sessments (SAT 10), the use
of unique and varying cur-
riculum (Early Language
and Literacy Model =
ELLM) and representation
by parents of enrolled chil-
dren as Governing Board
members are some of the
differences held by the
Kinder Cub School.

During the first year, the
Kinder Cub School will only
take the first 40 kinder-
garten age children en-
rolling. There will be two
certified early childhood
teachers, two paraprofes-
sionals, and one principal.
The Charter will adhere to
the same school calendar as
Dixie County Schools.


The Kinder Cub School has
been awarded the Depart-
ment of Education's Merit
Award Program (MAP)
which provides 5% salary
incentive to.the teachers for
outstanding performance.
The Charter has also been
approved for the National
School Lunch Program.
This is the same program
the Dixie County School
System participates for free
and reduced meal programs.
The Charter has also ap-
plied for a Florida Charter
School Planning and Imple-
mentation grant. Award no-
tification will be available
in late April.

Charter School's are just as
accountable as any public
school with much more flex-
ibility in services. We plan
to take advantage of these
services in more field trips,
additional technology, indi-
vidualized educational plan-
ning, and detailed profes-
sional development.

A deadline of April 30, 2011
is imposed so that serious
applicants will be granted
early enrollment. After
April 30, 2011 all remaining
slots and applicants will be
enrolled by a lottery process
as per Fl. Statutes.

We are currently developing
our website at
www.kindercubschool.org
and will be placing more in-
formation on this site in the
next couple of months. If
you have questions, please
feel free to contact the Dixie
Cub House at (352) 498-0002.

WHEN THE GAME
IS ON THE LINE
NOTHING IS
LEFT TO
CHANCE.

Picking an insurance agent shouldn't be
a guessing game either. Instead, look
for a Trusted Choices agency that
offers you a choice of insurance
companies so you can choose the
policy that's right for your needs.
Don't leave your insurance to
chance; choose a Trusted Choice
agency to help protect what's
important to you and your family.

Commissioner
seeks input from
citizens
The county is considering
charging a tipping/ dumping
fee for c&ed (construction and
demolition ) waste. Now any-
one can dump this waste for
free. However the county is
incurring a lot of cost associ-
ated with this, transporting,
landfilling the debris, man
hours,
equipment,and most impor-
tantly the cost of monitoring
the landfill for years to come.
Why charge? If we don't make
this change now our children
will have to deal with it at a
greater expense, for which we
accumulated for them.
Commissioner Holifield is
seeking public input on this
before he makes a decision.
Please email jason holifield
with your concerns
Jholifieldl@gmail.com or
mlong@dixieclerk.com.


The best things

in life are- ree.

On Friday February 4, 2011, Sheriff Dewey Hatcher and Deputy Matthew Man-
dola were at Anderson Elementary to present the 5th grade participants their D.A.R.E.
graduation certificates. Sheriff Hatcher continues to support the Drug Awareness Re-
sistance Education training for students and even with these difficult budgetary times,
he has stressed his belief in this important measure for oar children. Deputy Mandola
is a certified instructor in D.A.R.E. and was responsible for the presentation of the
training curriculum over the ten-week course of study. During Friday's presentation,
Superintendent Mark Rains and others were on hand as Sheriff Hatcher presented each
participant with their D.A.R.E. graduation certificate, pin, sticker and D.A.R.E. tee-
shirt.


Deputy Mandola is now currently scheduled to begin the D.A.R.E. training at Old Town
Elementary According to Sheriff Hatcher and Deputy Mandola, it would have been im-
possible for the Sheriff's Office to present this to the students without the complete co-
operation of the school faculty and administrations support and for this they are very
appreciative.
