lice Chief Wesley Jones,

ruary 7, 2011 and charged

tered/forged a check made
out to John Watson from

theft III charges on Tuesday
morning in front of Judge
Roy Bean.

Rogers was charged in
March and charged with
Burglary while armed, bur-
glary of a dwelling, and five
grand theft charges. Prior to
some traffic tickets, this was
his first brush with Dixie
County law enforcement.

Rogers accepted a deal for
364 days in the County jail,

and over $22,000 in restitu-
tion to his victims. Adjudi-

his young age.

drochloride pills were found

domestic violence charges.


Sick in Steinhatchee?

Like it or not, you're going to D.M.H.

Dixie County Commissioners warned to expect bIcklash from "the 'Hatch"


EMS Director Tim Alexan-
der told the Board of County
Commissioners on Thurs-
day evening to expect com-
plaints from Steinhatchee
residents. Taylor County has
begun to enforce a new poli-
cy that mandates that their
ambulances will no longer
transport patients to hospi-
tals in Gainesville. All pa-
tients will be transported,
regardless of their prefer-
ence, to Doctor's Memorial
Hospital in Perry

Taylor County residents will
have no option other than
going to Jena and calling for
a Dixie County ambulance,
Alexander explained,
"Everybody wants to go to
Gainesville. Those people
are gonna drive across the
river and ring the doorbell."

Alexander took off his med-
ical hat and put on his fire-
man's helmet and reported
that the County only has 16
people certified to fight fire,
and that out of 89 calls, they
were only able to "meet
standards" eleven percent of
the time and the time frame


sixty percent of the time."
He warned the Board that
new standards are changing
from four to six-firefighter
response teams, and "This
county cannot afford to have
a paid fire department to
meet these standards." He
continued, "Everybody
knows that we are in tough
economic times, and I'm not
asking you to pull a rabbit
out of a hat."

Annette Land and Bob
Solano appeared to request a
refund on impact fees they
paid to the county on a pro-
posed development that nev-
er happened due to the real
estate crash. They said they
had paid $87,000 and another
$5,000 in February of 2007.
The Board decided to table
the refund until a workshop
could be scheduled to deter-
mine "where we are."

Building Official John Jenk-
ins presented his monthly
report, saying that although
building had slowed down in
January, that things have
"started to pick back up."
Commissioner Marvin Hunt


asked Jenkins to "Go
through your code enforce-
ment book and try to find a
way to make it easier to get
a building permit. Get us a
list so we can all work on it
and help the people out."
Jenkins was also asked to
look into stepped-up enforce-
ment about a dog problem in
Old Town Hammock.

Librarian Cindy Bellot re-
minded the Commission
that the AARP is at the li-
brary doing free tax prepa-
ration "for everybody, not
just seniors."

County Manager Mike Cas-
sidy asked for Dixie citizens
to participate in "Support
your local business" month
in March.

He announced that the
Board has been working
with forty or fifty companies
in an attempt to attract an-
other grocery store to the
area, focusing on companies
in the Southeast.

Dog Show won by Real Dog!


Dog shows are usually won by dogs that aren't much good
for anything but competing in dog shows. If you've ever
been to one or watched one on TV, you know what I'm talk-
ing about. And of course, the most prestigious of dog shows
is the Westminster Kennel Club event, held annually at
Madison Square Garden. I used to watch it because it
bumped Vince McMahon's wrestling show out of its TV slot
once a year, but other than that,'it never interested me a
whole lot. For the most part, those just weren't my kind of
dogs.

All right, you can tell me that poodles were bred as hunting
dogs and the ridiculous hairdos they wear are for the pur-
pose of keeping strategic portions of their anatomy warm
while they're swimming in cold water to retrieve ducks, but
let me ask you this: If you were going hunting on a brisk
morning in late autumn here in Dixie County, would you re-
ally want to show up with a show dog poodle instead of the
customary pit bull or Walker hound? I didn't think so.
It's not just poodles, either. I don't know the names of most
of the breeds that show up, although there is one that you
can't say what kind it is without talking dirty. Most of them
look like you'd take after them with a broom if one showed
up in your kitchen. Actually, it's hard to tell with some of
these if they really are dogs. It's hard enough to believe
that Chihuahuas and Great Danes have a common ancestor,
but it's even more difficult to believe that some of the
freaks that win dog shows aren't some kind of varmint!

With that in mind, I was immensely pleased to learn that, at
last week's Westminster Kennel Club event, the winner and
officially designated "Top Dog" was a Scottish deerhound
named Hickory. And let me add that she was not a pam-
pered pooch with a pedigree and a remote ancestor that
once chased a cat. Sure, she had the credentials to establish
herself as a thoroughbred, otherwise she couldn't have
bought a ticket to that event, much less competed; but back
in Virginia, where she was raised, Hickory runs rabbits,
barks at the moon and does all the other things that normal
dogs are supposed to do. A dog like that--I'm talking' about
one that's actually good for something--usually doesn't
stand a snowball's chance on a hot July afternoon of win-
ning top honors in that highbrow event.

Of course, the best dogs as far as I'm concerned are the
ones with "undocumented ancestry" (I think that's the po-
litically correct term). Only trouble is, it gets a little hard to
tell what some of that undocumented ancestry was. Now, if
you had a really good cur dog you could hook up with a
neighbor's that was equally qualified, you could have your-
self a good litter of pups a couple times a year. And you did-
n't have no trouble finding good homes for them, either.
Folks would swap you stuff like a side of pork or a box of
shotgun shells--shux, I knew one good ol' boy who swapped
a pickup truck for a pair of pups from a really good undoc-
umented "lady dog"'(we ain't supposed to use that other
word), so don't be telling me that it takes a pedigree to
make a good dog.

To further illustrate my point, I had an undocumented dog
named Mortimer, and his best buddy, Sam, lived next door
and he was a thoroughbred Basset hound. (Actually, Sam
was better known as "Basket-butt," if that makes any dif-
ference.) When they'd go to chasing cars, I'd yell at them to
quit, and Mortimer would, but Sam would keep right on.
That's was probably a good thing, because Mortimer might
have caught one, but Sam was too slow, so that way neither
one of them got hurt. Besides that, Sam had a drinking
problem, but we don't need to get into that here.

Some undocumented types aren't so smart, though. A
neighbor lady had one that used to sleep under her car.
Whenever she cranked it up to go to work, "Dipsey" (not his
real name, but close) would just lay there till he got run
over. And I'm not talking about one time, I'm talking about
maybe once a week. He always survived., though he never
learned.

Anyway, congratulations to Hickory for winning Top Dog at
the Westminster Kennel Club Show, and thanks to the
judges for awarding top honors to a real dog for a change.

What the hail, Columbia?


ml hby' Kathy AMcKinney,

It is official, and I am vowing this in writing, with all of you
as my witness: I will not be sending any of my children to
Columbia University, not even with a gold-plated, all expens-
es paid scholarship. Not no way, not no how.

It hasn't made the news that I've seen, but there was a story
in the New York Post about a meeting that was recently held
at Columbia to decide if the campus would "allow" ROTC


back on the campus. Apparently,
some lefties at Columbia are upset
that the military doesn't allow people
to serve as soldiers who are in the
midst of sex changes or who are con-
fused about whether they should use
the restrooms for setters or pointers.
According to the Post, "'Transpeople
are part of the Columbia community,'
said senior Sean Udell." (Transpeo-
ple? What is that? People who are
turning into puppies? Half trans-
former robot, half human? Will they
pick a term and stick with it, please?)


want to live with all of the decision-making freedom of
adults, they have to accept the responsibility of supporting
themselves without daddy's money. But anyway, back to
Columbia.

At this meeting, a Columbia freshman named Anthony
Maschek approached the microphone. When he tried to
speak in favor of the ROTC on campus, people screamed
"RACIST!" at him. In a common-sense way, he said, ""It
doesn't matter how you feel about the war. It doesn't matter


Hail, ye heroes, heaven born band
Who fought and bled in freedom's cause,
Who fought and bled in freedom's cause.
And when the storm of war is gone,
Enjoy the peace your valor won;
Let independence be your boast,


Ever mindful what
Ever grateful for th
Let its altar reach tl
Firm, united, let us
Rallying round our li
As a band of brothers


My only experience of transgendered Peace and safety we sl
people in the military is limited to --Hail, Columbi
M*A*S*H reruns and Corporal
Klinger. Klinger was just pretending to be walking the other
side of the street, though, so everybody took him with a
grain of salt. My favorite line ever is when Sidney, the psy-
chiatrist, stops Klinger after some sort of psych evaluation
and says, "Hey, Soldier, you forgot your purse." Brilliant.
They don't make shows like that anymore.

Honestly, I can't imagine that many transgendered people
would be interested in serving in the military The uniforms
are dowdy and unstylish, at best. If they want to serve,
though; I don't see why they couldn't, but then again, I'm
not a general or an expert. Some things should be left to the
people who understand the requirements of that very diffi-
cult life. But it's only fair; if schools don't allow the U.S. mil-
itary onto the campus, then academia should learn to live
without Uncle Sam's checkbook. Like teenagers, if they


Letter to the Editor:


As I opened my mail this morning,
I noticed that my.Dish Network
bill had been increased, without
any type of notice of an increase.
Then I went to Hitchcock's to pick
up a few items and the local pa-
pers. The items I was going to pur-
chase had increased in price so
outrageously. Could it be that since
Foodland sold out or switched over
to a store local people do not like
to shop at you decided to increase
your merchandise? I did not get
the items there, although I still
wanted to purchase the local pa-
pers. I gave the cashier a dollar,
she informed me that they were
now charging tax on papers.

Well, Dish Network fell by the way-
side, and Hitchcock's can kiss my
business goodbye also. It seems
everyone is out to take the people
for all they have, and blame it on
the economy. As everyone knows,
we senior citizens did not get a
COLA increase again this year.

Hitchcock's you are pricing your-
self out of business.

Thank you,
Bea Gergory.

Ms. Bea: I'm afraid it's only going
to get worse. I'm expecting rapid
levels of inflation for the next few
years--except for real estate. I expect
that to dive even lower I suggest
that everybody plant a garden and
get some chickens. (No, I'm not kid-
ding.) The World Bank's globalfood
price (GFP) index increased by 15
per cent between October 2010 and
January 2011, 29 per cent above its
level a year earlier Just wheat has
gone up 75%. Commodities are ris-
ing daily and the governments just
keep on printing worthless paper
money. It's not the grocery stores'
fault; it's just more of that "change
you can believe in. "--ed

Sha


how you feel about fighting, There are bad
men out there plotting to kill you."

He was laughed at and jeered. See, what I'm
not telling you is that Mr. Maschek is a 28
year old disabled veteran from Idaho; ai am-
putee, confined to a wheelchair after he took
11 bullets in Kirkuk firefight. He broke both
legs and was wounded in the chest, abdomen
and arm. It took him two years in Walter
Reed to recover.

a T-shirts, flipflops and their scraggly hair and
they screamed epithets at a clean-cut young
man who only came to speak his mind. They held signs that
said "The military preys on low income communities," and
"1 in 3 women in the military is sexually assaulted," and
they wallowed in their false moral superiority.

Columbia University, those vile spoiled brats, and most of
all, their parents, should be deeply ashamed and should
apologize to the entire military in public. They should BEG
the ROTC to come back to campus, or lose all their govern-
ment funding and research contracts. They sat there, in
their posh world, at their posh school, with posh parents
paying upwards of $50,000 a year in tuition, and degraded a
man who is their better by any measure. A man who earned
his education, the hard way A man who sacrificed his legs
so that they could have the freedom to mock and laugh at
him for it. SHAME ON YOU COLUMBIA.

t Jers


by Bonnie Wilson

This winter Dave and I took
our usual bluegrass cruise
and off to a much warmer
climate than we had here at
home. We were both eager for
sunny blue skies and warm
tropical breezes. We certain-
ly had that and a whole lot
more on this years cruise.
How so much fun can be
packaged into a mere 7 day
cruise I'll never know! But I
do know it was exhilarating.
My how the time flew by, but
wait and let me fill you in as
I am always jumping into the
end before I begin my story.

On a cold frosty Saturday
morning Dave and I headed
out for Miami to spend the
night and be ready to board
our cruise ship on Sunday
morning. Miami is a huge
mess of super 8 lane high-
ways and lots of traffic, how-
ever we made it with no
problems to the Marriott ho-
tel where we had dinner and
rested for the following big
day

We met old friends from the
previous years of our cruises
on the following morning
while boarding the huge Car-
nival cruise ship Glory. My
goodness, it was a big one! I
stayed pretty close to Dave
the first few days while I
tried to remember where I
was supposed to be for blue-
grass concerts. I'm not a
leader, more of a follower
when traveling on a huge
ships or on our trail rides, as
I have been known to lead
friends into bushes after I've
missed a turn in the forest.
However I finally learned
that I had to go to the 5th
floor out of 14 floors so I
could make it to the other
end of the ship as it was the
only floor that went all the
way from one end to the oth-
er (oh brother)!

We had four beautiful stops
to make while cruising; Nas-
sau, St Thomas, San Juan
Porto Rico, and The Grand
Turk Islands. Each are lovely
on their own. Sometimes I
felt like I was in a time warp,


as some of the islands are
mostly like our southern
Florida state with swaying
palm trees and palmetto
bushes. San Juan for in-
stance, was a lot like Florida
as we traveled into the older
part of town to head out to a
local ranch for a trail ride.
There were 25 from our ship
that were loaded onto a bus
to head out of town to the
ranch which was a 45 minute
bus ride. The driver did not
speech much English but we
somehow understood each
other pretty well.

At the ranch we were quickly
sized up for our experience of
horses. Of course Dave and I
were in the experienced line
and two other lines were non
experienced and some expe-
rience. I was given a Paso
Fino mare named Brownie
and Dave got something we
assumed (as it loses some-
thing in the translation) a
Paso Fino gelding named
Gobble, although it is spelt
different.

The trail ride was really a lot
of fun. Our guide Romie al-
lowed Dave and I to lope up
the hills with him and the
very few who were actually
riders. I was amazed at how
smooth the lope was. Paso's
have very fast little feet and
boy do they travel quickly. I
have to say I really liked
Brownie (but please don't tell
Coby). We traveled around
the rain forest edges as we
were not allowed to take the
horses into the actual rain
forest. Everything was so
green and beautiful, and did
I mention warm?

We were told it might rain
for a few minutes while we
were there because it is a
rain forest. Imagine that!
However it did not rain and
we had a pretty terrific ride
up hills and down in beauti-
ful luscious green foliage on
a magnificent sunny warm
day with tropical breezes. We
also stopped by a river to see
how the Indians used miner-
al rocks for war paint on
their faces. These mineral
rocks were also a source of
having great skin. Natural
minerals were used as a
beauty treatment as well.

Ahhh but everything has to
come to an end and so did -
our cruise. I just wish you all
had been there. Until next
time, happy trails to you!

Bronson Speedway Reopening

By Young Unlimited Inc.
The Dixie County Advocate has learned that Bronson Speed-
way, formerly known as Bronson Motor Speedway in Bron-
son, Fl has been purchased by Young unlimited Inc, and is
scheduled to reopen in March, 2011 after sitting silent for
over a year. The 3/8tls mile high banked oval is looking to
host various divisions of racing of racing during the 2011
season, including a focus on INEX-sanctioned Legends Cars
and possible Bandoleros.

Chris and Ann Young, owners of Young Unlimited Inc., pur-
chased the track from former racer Mike Cope at the begin-
ning of February, and received the keys to the facility on
Wednesday, February 9th, 2011.
While we need to clean up the facility and make sure every-
thing is up to speed, "Mike Cope did a great job with the im-
provements to this track when he owned it," said Ann Young.
"From the catch fence to the bathrooms, everything says
class." When we get every-
thing cleaned up and
ready, this is going to be a
top-notch facility everyone
enjoy coming to."
The Young family is not
strangers to racing them-
selves. The New York na-
tives are well known at
Riverhead Raceway as
Chris Young Sr. races
NASCAR Modified full
season, while their son
Chris Jr. races Legend
Cars in the Semi- Pro divi-
sion. That experience be-
ing a racer will lend itself to providing a great atmosphere
for fans and drivers alike.

"We want everyone to come to a place to race with class,"
said Ann Young. "We want to bring back the old days of rac-
ing where everyone came to the track to have fun."

Ann Young told LegendsNation.com that they are looking to
incorporate various local divisions they have had at the track
in the past as well as Late Model division and INEX-sanc-
tioned Legend Cars. Bandoleros are also a possibility once
they determine how well they will be able to race at the track.
Also the track might entertain touring Modified or Late Mod-
els, in the future.

While a firm opening date hasn't been set, Ann Young told
LN that they are looking towards the middle to late March to

From COMMISSION, pg 1
Commissioner Jason Ho-
lifield said that he had an is-
sue with one of the vouch-
ers to Shands. The bill was
for $8,000 for "indigent
care," for an unnamed per-
son who was transported to
Shands and "We got stuck
with the bill."

Holifield protested and
made a motion to table pay-
ing Shands. County Clerk
Dana Johnson said, "It's re-
quired by Statute. I'd be
happy to read you the
Statute." The motion re-
ceived no second and died.

Commissioner Hunt asked
County Attorney Jennifer
Ellison to look into a pro-
posal made earlier in the
year to give "local business-
es preferences with bids."

Hunt said he had attended a
meeting of North Florida
Broadband and that they
are getting "ready to permit
the process."

Commissioner Mark Hatch
asked the Commission to
"come on board with this.
I've done a lot of talking
this week to our School
Board, to Dewey, the
City...we have a big problem
with drugs in our school
system," and requested a
workshop to discuss the
matter
EMS Director and School
Board member Tim Alexan-
der agreed, saying that "If
we can curb it there at the
school, then we can correct
a lot of it in the communi-
ty"
Rita Harris of Harris Ad-
ministrative Service ap-
peared and a squabble broke
out between her and Chair-
man Hatch about the SHIP
program. Harris resigned
from the SHIP program in


January after a conflict
with the Board. She said, "I
don't know if ya'll realize it
or not but there was no
funding for 2010. I'm not go-
ing to do it anymore, and
I'm tired of it being as-
sumed that I'm going to. I'm
not appreciated. And if I'm
not appreciated, don't ask
me."

Chairman Hatch replied,
"I'm not asking."
County Manager Mike Cas-
sidy chimed in, saying "You
asked to look at those files,
you volunteered. You said
that you would not be there
(at the audit). I had a staff
member be there. This re-
cent work you accomplished
this week you volunteered
to do."

Commissioner Hatch said,
"We lacked four points of
getting kicked out of that
program...what did you
make off of SHIP?"
Harris replied, "What I am
saying is, this is my last
report. You wanted me to
leave, therefore I am."
Commissioner Holifield
asked, "On this Thompson
Road (CDBG) grant. If it
goes through, will you make
any money on that?"
Harris replied, "Yes, eight
percent. Like anybody else.
It's built into the grant."

Mrs. Janice Strickland,
mother of County Manager
Mike Cassidy, appeared to
ask the Commission with
help with a recently promot-
ed EMS employee who owes
her money and who refuses
to pay Mrs. Strickland
asked "Would you want
somebody to treat your
mother like that?" The
Board referred Mrs. Strick-
land to the civil court sys-
tem.

To those of you who knew daddy during his hunting years
may have known him as "Hammerhead." He worked con-
struction for 40 plus years and almost 30 of those years
were right here in Dixie County, as a general contractor.

Daddy may not have been a rich man but he had a big
heart. Daddy loved many things in his life to one thing was
the Seminoles, I am so glad that he got to watch them beat
the Gators one last time. Woo Hoo if I know Daddy he's
gonna be up in heaven this year cheering them on doing the
Seminoles chop, he was a man that loved hunting, fishing,
joking with people anything to put a smile on someone's
face, making jewelry, drag racing just the kind you watch
on TV his family, and most of all his wife of 50 years, no
they weren't married that long but they might as well have
been. They had a rare kind of love so strong that a lot of us
only dream about yeah they had their ups and downs but in
the end it was still just mama and daddy They didn't have a
lot in the beginning but what they did have was love and us
kids. To them that was all they needed Daddy I know you'll
be in heaven looking down on me keeping me straight. I
love you daffy I'm going to miss you calling me and our
talks.
Love your baby daughter Munchie
P.S. Happy Birthday Daddy! We love you!

Happy Birthday Daddy.
Today you would have been 66 years old. Too many candles
for one cake. lol. You left us all too soon and we will miss
you more than anyone can imagine. You were the rock of
our family but I guess now it is Bubba's turn to try to feel
your shoes. They say only the good die young and that
much is true. You were too young but at least you aren't in
any more pain. God answered your prayers and took you
home to be with him. I will miss you and the rides we took
on our motorcycles.
I love you, Daddy
Your daughter Carolyn

Obituaries and Faith


r Mattie Jane Thomas
Mattie Jane Thomas went to heaven when Jesus came and wrapped his
loving arms around her on February 10, 2011 at Woods Hospital. She was
82 years old. She was born on March 22,1928 in Branford, Florida to the
late Luther and Gertrude Clemons. She was a member of Magnolia Bap-
tist Church.
She raised five children by herself after her divorce and worked as a man-
ager for Dollar General. She always made sure the children had what they
needed, doing without for herself. Any child who needed a place to stay,
would be taken in by Mattie and treated as if they were her own.
She was a very giving person and never met a stranger. She enjoyed her
grandchildren and great grandchildren and helped raise her daughter An-
nita's children. She enjoyed cooking, search a word books, planting, gar-
dening and canning, and growing roses. She loved listening to gospel mu-
sic and the Grand Ole Opry, as well as watching church on tv once she be-
came 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, Annita
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 and Susie Parrish; sixteen grandchildren,
Margery and Chris Crumley, Glen and Amanda Byrd, Jeff Byrd and fianc:
Jade Taylor, Kymberleah Thomas, Jonathan Clemons, Damon and Josh
Thomas, Danny, Marsha, Nancy, and Diane Clemons, Josh (Leanne), Justin
(Stephanie), Jarid and John Giles; twenty-one great grandchildren, the lo-
cal ones being, Austin Byrd, Haley and Kailyn Crumley, Emily and Melody
Byrd, and Steven and Zachery Smith; sisters in law, Lillian Clemons and
Idella Thomas, both of Old Town, FL; and her best friend for 74 years,
Ellen Smith of Sebring, FL.
Funeral services will be held Wednesday at 2 p.m. at Grissom Funeral
Home with Pastor Charles Cheatham officiating. Interment will follow in
Lebanon Baptist Church Cemetery with Annita Thomas, Glen Byrd, Jeff
Byrd, Austin Byrd, Chris Crumley, Josh Thomas, and Josh Keith serving
as pallbearers. Honorary pallbearers will be Corky Thomas, Ladd
Clemons, Luther Clemons and Ben Ramey
The family will receive friends Wednesday from 12 noon 2 p.m. at the fu-
neral home prior to the service. To send an online condolence to the fami-
lyplease visit www.grissomfh.net.

Gratitude unlocks
the fullness of life. It turns
what we have into enough,
and more. It turns denial
into acceptance, chaos to
order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a
feast, a house into a

friend.

Florida's top freshwater

fishing destinations for

2011

Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) freshwater fisheries
biologists from across the
state recently weighed in to
suggest fishing sites that
novice to expert anglers
might want to try out in 2011
for a variety of species.

Florida is the "Fishing Capi-
tal of the World" due to great
resources and responsible
management. Those great re-
sources include a wide vari-
ety of fishing opportunities
throughout the state. Every
winter, biologists select some
of the larger water bodies
they recommend anglers try
out.

To make their recommenda-
tions biologists use informa-
tion such as creel count (data
from actual anglers' on-the-
water success for the previ-
ous year); electrofishing data
(a sampling method that uses
electric currents to stun fish
so they can be netted, exam-
ined and released); tourna-
ment data; Big Catch results
(the FWC's popular angler-
recognition program); state
records; interviews with lo-
cal guides and bait-and-tack-
le shop owners; and their
own fishing experiences.

All of the sites selected are
large enough and have ade-
quate public access facilities
to accommodate additional
fishing pressure and still
provide great fishing oppor-
tunities. We also try to take
into account recent or antici-
pated weather or vegetation
trends that might impact an-
gling success throughout the
year.


Bears lose to Trenton, 14-2


Sorry about the pictures, Angel was in Daytona at the race.
Mine stank on ice. She'll be here for the next game!--ed

On Friday night, the Bears baseball teams took the field to
play host to the Trenton Tigers.

The Varsity Bears took the field, looking to beat the Tigers.
The Bears scored a run in the bottom of the first, but could-
n't get anything going after that, until they scored again in
the 6th. The Tigers managed to score in every inning but
the 5th, giving them the 14-2 victory over the Bears. The
Bears managed just 4 hits during the game. Hunter Robson,
Nathan Zeller, Kelby Lamar and John Morgan Lord deliv-
ered those 4 hits. At the plate, Nathan Zeller and Kelby
Lamar both went 1-3 with a double and RBI each. On the
mound, Kirby Roberts pitched 3.1 innings, giving up 7 runs,
4 earned runs, 3 walks, and struck out 5. Nathan Zeller
pitched 2 innings giving up 6 runs, 2 earned runs, 4 walks,
and he struck out 2 batters.

The Bears next game is scheduled for the 28th as they play
at Home against the PK Yonge Blue Wave. The JV teams
take the field at 4pm, the Varsity teams take the field at
7pm. Please come out and support Bear Baseball!


The results are posted on
MyFWC.com/Fishing (see
"Fishing Sites and Fore-_
casts") each January. In addi-
tion, that site also provides
quarterly fishing forecasts
for major water bodies in
each region of the state,
along with fishing tips and
information about all of
Florida's recreational fresh-
water fishes.

Of course, one of these lists
features largemouth bass,
the most popular sport fish
in North Amerida, and one
which has been a jewel in
Florida's crown since the
first angler cast a hook
alongside a lily pad. Long be-
fore that, it was a gem for na-
tive fishermen casting a fish
spear or a gorge (the prede-
cessor of fish hooks) typi-
cally a bone with an off-cen-
ter hole attached to a line.
When a fish swallowed it and
the fishermen pulled on the
line, the gorge stuck in the
fish's throat.

Another piece of good news
is that Lake Okeechobee, the
"Big Waters" in the midst of
the renowned River of Grass,
is back on the list. Following
a series of environmental
calamities, including pro-
longed high water and hurri-
canes, the lake's resiliency
and management efforts
have generated a bass resur-
gence. Other featured black
bass waters include perenni-
al favorites, such as the Ever-
glades Conservation Areas;
lakes George. Istokpoga.
Kissimmee, Monroe, Semi-
nole, Talquin, Tarpon, Toho
and Walk-in-Water; Mosaic
and Tenoroc fish manage-
ment areas; Orange Lake;
Rodman Reservoir; and the
Suwannee Rivert

Who knows? You might land
a trophy fish by trying out


these hotspots. A yellow bull-
head caught in the Crystal
River on Dec. 17 became the
new state record for that
species. Tom Flynn of Ho-
mosassa was fishing with
minnows he caught at a boat
ramp when he hooked the
catfish. The new state record
yellow bullhead weighed 5
pounds, .75 ounces and was
20 inches in length.

Please check out
MyFWC.com/Fishing, under
"Fishing Sites and Fore-
casts," to learn more about
these destinations and how
your fishing license dollars
help ensure the future of
quality freshwater fishing
throughout Florida, so peo-
ple can keep catching vari-
ous bass species; crappie,
bream or bluegill; shellcrack-
ers or stumpknockers; red-
breast sunfish; and catfish or
bullheads.

We hope you will try your
luck fishing for a new
species or testing some of
these outstanding fishing
holes this year to expand
your enjoyment, and we en-
courage you to take a kid
fishing. It's likely a tossup
between bluegill and catfish
for having generated most of
those awesome "first fish"
smiles for millions of young
and not-so-young anglers in
Florida. Regardless, for a
kid, fishing is inexpensive,
fun, healthy and a great way
to spend quality time with
someone you care about
away from the stresses of
daily life.
