Got


insurance?

Florida requires that if
you're caught driving
with no proof of car in-
surance, that the driver's
license be suspended if
you own, or co-own the.
car.

On February 11, a new
change went into effect
that makes any convic-
tion or "paid civil penal-
ty" for no proof of insur-
ance will produce a dri-
ver license suspension
order which will be
mailed to the driver. To
reinstate your license,
you will have to show
proof of insurance for
the date of the offense or
pay a $150, $250, or $500
fee.

A release sent to Law En-
forcement Agencies says,
"With this law change,
we now have the authori-
ty to suspend a cus-
tomer's driving privilege
and registration upon re-
ceipt of a conviction of
this violation. This
process will identify po-
tentially uninsured dri -
vers and enable the De
apartment to enforce
mandatory Personal In-
jury Protection/Property
Damage Liability insur-
ance requirements to
protect the driving pub-
lic.

So keep those insurance
cards handy!

armed robbery of the Trad-
ing Post store in Old Town,

child battery case


Keith Brian Clark, 40, of Old
Town appeared before Judge
Roy Bean on Thursday, re-
questing that his $300,000
bond be reduced. Clark was
arrested on January 19 and
charged with Sexual Battery
on a child.

The prosecutor stated that
Clark had previous convic-
tions for child abuse, and
charges back in 1998 for
Lewd Conduct in the Pres-
ence of a child and aggravat-
ed child abuse that were dis-
missed "Nolle Prosequi,"

tor declined to prosecute on
those charges.

Judge Bean quickly denied
the motion.

take care of them.

"So, you're anticipating a
motion to sup-
press her state-
ment?" the
judge asked.
The attorney
agreed, and
said that there
might be some
Problems with
the statement
Stroupe gave to
investigators.

The judge stat-
ed that in light of the seri-
ousness of the crime, that
the bond was reasonable
and denied the request.

Kalisz cops a plea


John Kalisz took a plea bargain deal on Thursday to avoid the death
penalty for shooting Dixie County Captain Chad Reed to death last
year. Bored reporters from South Florida news outlets, who had
been informed of the deal hours prior to the hearing, kept cameras
rolling as Judge Roy Bean addressed Kalisz and acknowledged a
room "full of disappointed people who wanted you to get the death
penalty" Bean continued, "You are to be imprisoned for the remain-
der of your natural life without possibility of parole."



Three arrested for


Oxycodone sales


Left to right: Raymond Hill, Mil
A typical drug sale investigation often in-
volves the use of informants, confidential
informants or cooperating witnesses. The
use of these individuals is all too often a
complicated issue to navigate through our
criminal justice system having to guarantee
that all of the intricate procedures of law
have been followed. One such investigation
has begun to culminate with several arrests
and additional arrests to follow. The investi-
gation began in October of 2010 and in-
volved the sale of prescription drugs. As a
result of this investigation there have been
three arrests so far with additional arrests
expected in the coming days.

Raymond Hill, 31 years of age, Michael G.
Hill, 26 years of age and Amber Arnesen, 21
years of age were arrested on January 24,
2011. All three subjects listed Old Town ad-


dresses at the time of arrest. Raymond Hill
was arrested for two counts of the Sale of a
Controlled Substance; Oxycodone. Michael
Hill was arrested for two counts of the Sale
of a Controlled Substance; Oxycodone and
Amber Arnesen was arrested for one count
of the Sale of a Controlled Substance; Oxy-
codone. Some of the counts these individu-
als face carry a mandatory sentence if con-
victed with Raymond Hill facing a mandato-
ry 25 year sentence if convicted in one the
sales transactions he was involved in.

Sheriff's investigators will be ob-
taining warrants on additional individuals
involved in this investigation in the coming
days and are expected to making additional
arrests as a result of this four month inves-
tigation.


Old Town couple try to evade cops by


On February 14, 2011, Levy
Deputies and Investigators
assisted Gilchrist County
Sheriffs Office in reference
to a residential burglary
that just occurred in
Gilchrist County Richard
Beckelheimer noticed a
black Chevy Blazer at his
mother's address on SW
80th Street. He didn't think
his mother was home, and
didn't recognize the vehicle.
He pulled in and confronted
a white male and a white fe-
male coming out of the
house carrying his mother's
belongings. A brief scuffle
took place and the two sus-
pects managed to escape.
The two were able to evade
capture by running out the
back sliding door and flee-
ing in a black SUV Beckel-
heimer followed the sus-
pects to Levy County and
called Gilchrist County law
enforcement on his cell
phone. The suspects' vehicle
was located behind the Fan-
ning Springs City Hall and

immediately ran on foot.

Deputy Clint Anderson &
his K-9 partner, Robiek, re-
sponded to the scene and
tracked the suspects. Dur-
ing the tracking, Robiek lo-
cated the suspect's shoes and
a stolen .22 caliber rifle in
the woods. Deputies cor-
doned the area off and In-
vestigator Roger Bell located
the suspects running on foot
towards the Suwannee Riv-
er. When Bell gave them an
order to stop, the suspects


jumped into the river to es-
cape arrest but realized that
the water was too cold and
surrendered without inci-
dent.

Bennett was charged with
one count of Burglary, one
count of Grand Theft, and
held on $45,000 bond.
Bartholomew was charged
with one count of Burglary,
one count of Grand Theft,
and held on $40,000 bond.
Additional charges are
pending.

Just what we (don't) need

Would American interests be served if we strengthened the
United Nations? The Obama administration seems to think
so. Last week, Susan Rice, our ambassador to the UN, made
the first in a planned series of speeches in which she as-
serted that the UN is important to our security and would
serve this interest even better if we would strengthen,
rather than weaken the organization.

For openers, what do you suppose "strengthen" means
when the term is used in the context of what the United
States should do as a member nation? Contribute more
money, perhaps? Should Uncle Sugar shoulder a larger
share of the financial burden this misbegotten aggregation
of diverse diplomats appropriates for their own selfish in-
terests? So we pay approximately 25% of the UN's operating
expenses, rather than charging member nations rent on
their offices and seats at the table, so what? The purpose of
the UN is to advance the cause of democracy, so perhaps we
should remember the sage observation, "From each accord-
ing to his abilities, to each according to his needs." Some-
body named Marx said that, I believe. Might have been one
of Groucho's brothers. They had a lot of comedians in that
family, as I recall.

Or maybe we should forfeit our permanent seat on the Se-
curity Council. All right, we're a charter member and the
principal organizer--and oh, yes; American real estate was
donated, and American money was used to construct the
elaborate edifice in which the aforementioned misbegotten
aggregation remains in virtually perpetual session. But if
we were to vacate our position on the Security Council, this
could give some struggling nation--Egypt, for example--an
opportunity to assume that role. Nationalist China had a
"permanent" seat on the Security Council until 1971, at
which time the Nationalists forfeited their position in def-
erence to the current government of China., and in fact
abandoned the organization altogether.

Well, perhaps it wasn't altogether voluntary, but certainly
we must realize that the greater purpose was served by
what happened at that time. And certainly the United States
would not be expected to leave the organization as the Na-
tionalist Chinese government did. Those people relocated
on Taiwan and haven't contributed a dime to the UN since!
Excuse me, let's get back on track. I was trying to think like
a liberal and I got carried away. The Huffington Post ain't
gonna buy this piece anyway.

Some UN facts, of which most of us are at least dimly
aware, but grudgingly accept because we consider them in-
evitable: We have one vote in the General Assembly, which,
from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, consists of (are you ready
for this?) one hundred, ninety-two national entities, many
of which have fewer residents than most of our states.
Monaco is less than one square mile in size. Most US cities
are bigger than that. Still, all 192 member nations, includ-
ing burs, are equal in the General Assembly. I thought liber-
als were in love with the "one man, one vote" concept. Obvi-
ously it doesn't apply at the UN.

We send big bucks in foreign aid to a compost wagon-load of
countries that consistently vote against us and our inter-
ests in the UN. We need an administration with the cojones
to cut these arrogant free-loaders loose from the source of
their superciliousness.

Obviously, we cannot buy allies with taxpayer money, so
why not a foreign policy that just tells these heathen that if
they play ball with us, we won't underwrite violent revolu-
tions in their countries?

And by the way, the UN wants world-wide gun control, and
Secretary of State Clinton seems to like the idea.


In a sense, the problem with the UN is a lot like the problem'
with our own country: too much government. While we're
cutting our own down to size, we certainly don't need to be
funding more muscle to the aforementioned misbegotten
aggregation of diverse diplomats.

]Way down in Egypt land, tell ol' Pharaoh, let my people go


'by Kathy McKinney,

Back in the early Paleozoic era before email and the inter-
net, when I was in Elementary School, the big thing was per
pals. Once a year, every kid would get a little form and for
fifty cents, you could sign up to get a pen pal from another
country. I had lots. A few stick out in my memory, Philippe
from France, Marina from Ireland, a boy from Greece, but
the one who stuck with me even as I graduated high school
and beyond was Basem.


Basem was an agriculture student in
Cairo. I didn't understand why at the time,
but he made a big point out of identifying
himself as a Christian. In my fourth grade,
Dixie County world, this didn't seem weird
or worth mentioning and it seemed an odd
thing for a kid to say. Wasn't everybody?

We wrote each other for years and years. I
still know his address by heart, I scribbled


"These countries

it on so many envelopes: Basem Emil, 12
Omrania, Gaza, Cairo, EGYPT. For some
reason, you always had to underline the
country I never figured out why, but every-
body else did it, so I did, too. I'd send him letters about
school, and the weather, and whatever it is that little kids
talk about on those funny little stationary pads you used to
be able to buy at TG&Y with matching envelopes. He'd write
me back, in halting English, on thin "AirMail" paper and en-
velopes, usually with a postcard of the pyramids, or the
Sphinx, or a picture of him and his brothers or something
else stuck in for fun.

We continued writing each other even after I was grown,
with a job and a house of my own, though the letters got
more and more spread out over the years. I got a letter from
him one day, inviting me to come visit him and to meet his
parents and family in Egypt, and to do some sightseeing.
When I replied that a trip to the Nile wasn't in the financial
cards for me in the near future, I got another, sad letter that
sort of had a desperate mood to it. Maybe I wanted to get
married, he asked, and then he could leave Egypt and come
to America? Sure, I was shocked, and he took my surprise


Dear Editor,

This world is filled with dis-
appointments. Some come
unplanned as a result of
life; other come as a result
of poor judgment. This let-
ter is written because some-
one made a very poor
choice.

I write on behalf of a family

who lost a 2 year old child
many years ago. The childs
death obviously devastated

Letter To the Editor

Mental illness and sub-
stance abuse are being rec-
ognized as critical issues in
our society, ones that lie at
the root of some of our
most pressing challenges,
the state of Florida is con-
sidering the elimination of
state funding to address
these needs.

Rising jail and prison popu-
lations include a significant
number (some 50%) of indi-
viduals who can be diverted
to treatment. Most (70%)
child abuse cases, and 95%
of those with a child death,
involve parental addiction.
School failure, and high
drop-out rates can be im-
pacted by adequate services
for parents and children
who suffer from mental ill-
ness and substance use dis-
orders. 35% of the home-
less, and most of the chroni-
cally homeless, have a sub-
stance use or mental health
issue.

The economic impact of de-
pression is in the billions of
dollars annually through
absenteeism and low pro-
ductivity. There is signifi-
cant evidence that treat-
ment works and is less cost-
ly than incarceration,
school failure, or child pro-
tection intervention after
abuse.

At this same time, Florida's
Senate is considering elimi-
nating DCF's funding for
those suffering from these
illnesses and leaving treat-
ment to Medicaid. That
won't work. Medicaid does
not cover many severely
and persistently mentally ill
individuals because they ei-
ther do not meet the overly

It is the only connection
they have with their baby

Recently, an individuals) re-
moved the little wagon. I
shall not word this letter
with condemnation and
blame. That would be of lit-
tle value. However, I do
write to encourage those
who are responsible for the
wagons' disappearance to
correct their mistake. Re-
turn it to its rightful place
soon.

restrictive federal disability
criteria or they have in-
comes just slightly above
the poverty income thresh-
old that qualifies one for
Medicaid. Moreover, there
are many mental health cri-
sis services, residential and
support services that Med-
icaid does not cover, and
substance abuse coverage is
virtually non-existent.
Without this safety net
there will be no public facil-
ities to receive individuals
who need involuntary eval-
uation.

Families, in a crisis, will
have no place to turn when
a loved one's problem leads
to aggression or suicide.
Emergency rooms will find
themselves with no disposi-
tion for these individuals.
Jails will have no options
for diversion, despite the
proven ability of individu-
als to be treated in the com-
munity.

The homeless population,
already on the rise, will in-
crease further as safe hous-
ing for disabled individuals
is eliminated. The state's
current share of federal
grant funds, which require
state funding match, will be
lost. But most of all, 300,000
people will be left to with-
out any chance at recovery.

This plan, for a state that is
already 49th in the country
in funding for mental
health is not just bad policy,
it's bad for the economy, it's
bad for business, and it's a
shameful neglect of Flori-
da's most vulnerable.

Thank you,

and my "What the heck?" in stride, but he sulked and I did-
n't hear from him for a while. Now that I think back on it,
how hard, how difficult, must have life been in poverty-
stricken, muslim Egypt for this college-educated agricultur-
al major and Christian for him to risk something like asking
a total stranger in another country to get married?


I guess that question got answered last week when the peo-
ple of Cairo marched on the palace, demanding a voice in
their government. What you didn't read in the mainstream
media is why: food prices in Egypt have DOUBLED in the
last year. Paychecks haven't. When kids start
are among the most missing meals, people can be driven to des-
ackward countries, operate measures like storming the capitol.
that's why they are And it worked! They got rid of their dictator,
afraid of the internet. they apparently got their Facebook turned
internet will spread back on-though Basem hasn't logged in since
western ideas then, so I don't know how he's doing- and
they may even get elections, but do elections
dom and democracy really equal freedom? Obviously not when
d to an overthrow of places like Venezuela have "elections" where


their power." the existing dictator gets 99% of the vote and
the citizens live under a communist tyranny.
Gao Yu
"G Democratic elections" aren't enough. True,
democracy needs freedom of the press, freedom of speech
and religion, freedom of association, and rights to petition
the government at the very least. Egypt needs a Bill of
Rights guaranteeing these rights to all people, men and
women, muslim and infidel. Otherwise, "free" elections to
select yet another dictator or cleric to reign over an Islamic
state is meaningless. We can't allow the Muslim Brother-
hood to wiggle into the power vacuum and take control. We
don't need another country in the Middle-East where
women can't drive and where churches and Bibles are
against the Shariah law. We need a truly free, truly democra-
tic, secular Egypt. The United States, Israel, and the people
of Egypt, should accept nothing less.

James Madison said, "Democracy was the right of the peo-
ple to choose their own tyrant." Egypt deserves better than
a Pharaoh by another name. Obama has the chance to play
modern-day Moses and say "Let my people go." Will he have
the guts to do it? For Basem's sake, I hope so.

Open Letter to

The Citizens of Dixie

County


Greetings,

During the first two months
of this year Sheriff's and
Emergency Services person-
nel have responded to four
separate overdoses on pre-
scription medication. We
are not alone in this epi-
demic problem that has run
rampant across the country.
We are however among
many communities that
have one distinct advantage
over larger metropolitan ar-
eas. We as a community are
keenly aware of what is oc-
curring with many of our
friends, family members, co-
workers and children. With
this responsibility however
comes the necessity for ear-
ly intervention. Many times
we have talked with loved
ones after they have suf-
fered a tragic loss only to
hear that they suspected
something but didn't want
to make any accusations be-
cause they were not sure.
Although we in law enforce-
ment understand why some-
one could feel this way, we
also realize that without
early intervention, some-
one's life could be lost.

Be rest assured that
I and my entire law enforce-
ment staff are continually
attempting to aggressively
enforce prescription and
other illicit drug sales and
use laws, however, law en-
forcement in this communi-
ty or any other community
can not do this alone. To ef-
fectively curb this or any
trend, will take the coopera-
tion of citizens, parents,
school officials, students,
law enforcement and every
other sector of the commu-
nity. We will however, con-
tinue to strive to eliminate
this and any other danger-
ous activity within the
bounds of the law.

Meanwhile, until
this success is met, there
are several things you as
parents, friends and neigh-
bors can do in order to
watch for abuse. Some of
the signs and symptoms of
prescription abuse are as
follows:

Other prescription drug

Excessive mood swings
Increase or decrease in
sleep
Poor decisions making
Appearing to be high, un-
usually energetic or revved

Continually "losing" pre-
scriptions, so more prescrip-
tions must be written
Seeking prescriptions from
more than one doctor

We as a law enforcement of-
ficials are charged with en-
forcing the laws, however,
that does not preclude us
from answering your ques-
tions or concerns. If you
have a family member or
friend that you are con-
cerned about, please feel
free to call my office if you
are seeking assistance for
them. You may do so with-
out disclosing the individ-
ual you are concerned for

DIXIE SCHOOL
COUNSELORS HONORED

In honor of National School

Give blood, save lives at
Dixie County Rotary
Community Drive

Cross City, FL Every year,
4.5 million lives are saved in
the US and Canada thanks to
blood transfusions. The
group of patients whose lives
are saved stretch across all
demographics, races and eth-

of blood can save a baby's
life, so imagine the impact
that your pint of donated
blood can have. LifeSouth,
the Dixie County Rotary and
the community of Cross City
invite you to be a part of sav-
ing lives when they team up
to host a blood drive on
Wednesday, February 23. We
are looking for lifesavers on

Spring turkey hunting season has 2 new rules

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) reminds hunters that there are changes this spring
turkey season.

.Because of safety concerns among Florida's turkey hunters,
the FWC passed a rule that limits the methods of take al-
lowed during spring turkey hunts on wildlife management ar-
eas (WMAs). The new rule restricts guns to shotguns and
muzzleloading shotguns (using shot no larger than No. 2) and
allows bows and ciossbows. All rifles, pistols, buckshot and
slugs are prohibited during spring turkey hunts on WMAs.

The exceptions are on Joe Budd, Raiford and Santa Fe
Swamp, where muzzleloading rifles are still allowed because
spring turkey hunting on these areas is restricted to primi-
tive guns only.

This rule does not apply to turkey hunting on private lands.

The second new rule established a special two-day youth
turkey hunt on private lands the weekend prior to the open-
ing of spring turkey season in each hunting zone. In Zone A
(the southern portion of Florida, south of State Road 70), this
youth turkey hunting weekend is Feb. 26-27. In the remainder
of the state, this special youth hunt is March 12-13.

Only those under 16 years old may harvest a turkey while su-
pervised by an adult, 18 years or older. And as long as the
adult supervisor doesn't actively participate in the hunt, no
license or permit is required for either youth or adult.

If the adult wants to help "call in" a turkey, set out decoys or
participate otherwise, he or she needs a hunting license ($17
for residents, $46 for a 10-day nonresident license) and turkey
permit ($10 for residents, $125 for nonresidents). Neverthe-
less, only the youth can pull the trigger. And any turkey har-
vested counts toward the youth hunter's spring season limit
of two.

New baseball season
starts off on the
slow side for the
Bears

by Angel Lee

The Dixie Bears opened up
their 2011 season on Friday
when they traveled to.Tren-
ton to take on the Oak Hall
Eagles in a pre-season tour-
nament. The Bears got
things started as Kirby
Roberts scored the first run
of the game and gave the
Bears a 1-0 lead. Starting
Pitcher Cody Cannon
looked strong in the start of
the game, but The Eagles
would claw their way to the
lead and looked to take full
control of the game when
they took a 6-1 lead. The
Bears wouldn't give up so
easy, and fought back, but
their rally came up just a
bit short as they lost 10-8 to
the Eagles.

On Saturday, the Bears trav-
eled back to Trenton to take
on the Newberry Panthers
in their re-scheduled game

Log Cabin Quilters

The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, Feb 11 at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. As our
northern ladies come back to
great weather, we are busy
Dorothy Riggs, Elvena David-
son and Mildred Medskar are
back but time changes many
things. There have been years
when they come and quilt one
or two quilts while here but
like a lot of us, we can't do the
many things we used to do. It
is great to have them with us
this year. It's great to be able
to visit and talk of old times.
We have had many quilters out
here in the years since we
started and we wonder where
the years have gone. Welcome
Home ladies.

Our bus is full and we look
forward to going down on
Tuesday to the Fair. Everyone
cannot will ribbons but its
great to be able to put our
quilts and crafts in which
makes us do our best.

Thursday lunch was so good
, with chicken and noodles,
beans and rice, greens, cheese
and macaroni, lasagna, eggs,
Doris' pumpkin roll, brownies,
sweet potatoes and so much
more.

Clemons. She was a member of Magnolia Baptist Church.
She raised five children by herself after her divorce and worked
as a manager for Dollar General. She always made sure the chil-
dren had what they needed, doing without for herself. Any child
who needed a place to stay would be taken in by Mattie and treat-
ed as if they were her own.

joyed her grandchildren and great grandchildren and helped
raise her daughter Annita's children. She enjoyed cooking,
search a word books. planting, gardening and canning, and grow-
ing roses. She loved listening to gospel music and the Grand Ole
Opry as well as watching church on tv once she became unable
to attend. She loved Jesus. She was looking forward to spring
planting and had already picked out her seeds. Her family is
sure she'll be working in the garden in Heaven.
She was known as Maw by her grandkids and Old Maw by her
great grandchildren.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her step
mother, Hazel Clemons; aunt Ellen (who helped raise her since
her mother died when Mattie was 10); adopted brothers, Coy and
George; son, Lewis Thomas; granddaughters, Alicia Smith and
Lynn Clemons: and father of her children, M. F. Thomas.
She leaves behind to miss her, daughter whom she lived with, An-
nita Jayne Thomas of Ocoee, TN; sons, Corky Thomas and wife
Nancy of Old Town, FL, Luther Clemons and wife Wanda of
Lake City, FL, and Ladd Clemons of Old Town, FL; sixteen grand-
children, Margery and Chris Crumley, Glen and Amanda Byrd,
Jeff Byrd and fiance Jade Taylor, Kymberleah Thomas, Jonathan
Clemons, Damon and Josh Thomas, Danny, Marsha, Nancy, and
Diane Clemons, Josh (Leanne), Justin (Stephanie), Jarid and
John Grimes; twenty-one great grandchildren, the local ones be-
ing, Austin Byrd, Haley and Kailyn Crumley, Emily and Melody
Byrd, and Steven and Zachery Smith; sisters in law, Lillian

SPRINGHOUSE QUILTER'S NEWS

Springhouse Quilters held their monthly meeting on Febru-
ary 8 with 49 members and guests present. President, Pat
Hodges presided for the meeting and was a cheerful, happy,
little lady welcoming members and conducting the meeting.
Springhouse celebrated their annual birthday with a special
birthday cake during the monthly meeting.

Springhouse was started in February, 1992 with only 9 ladies
meeting at the Otter Springs Spring House and organizing
the quilting group. Mary Jo Hefner was the very first presi-
dent and no longer lives in the area. She does stay in contact
with the group when she visits the area. Other beginning
members were Lois Schroeter and Onnie Mae Colson who
also stay in contact with the quilt group. Springhouse has
grown from a group of 9 ladies and now has a membership of
over 100 ladies.

The group still meets on the second and forth Tuesday of
each month and has a large group of working ladies that
meet each Tuesday night for a couple of hours to work on
their projects and participate in events involving the guild.

Springhouse has continued to grow and expand. The group
conducts their meetings and workshops at their quilt build-
ing which is west of Trenton. If interested in more informa-
tion on Springhouse Quilters, please contact Lois Scott, 463-
