Dixie's May

Unemployment

Rate still high


Figures released by the
State of Florida show that
Dixie County's unemploy-
ment rate for May went
down from April's 12.3% to
12.2%. The number of peo-
ple looking for work went
down by one person, from
721 to 720; while the number
of people actually employed
went from 5,138 to 5,183. The
total labor force increased,
too, from 5859 to 5,903.

Last year during May the
unemployment rate was
10.4% and 596 people were
unemployed.

wastewater. The engineers
plan to drill under the
Suwannee River or attach
10" pipes to the bridge to
run water from Fanning
Springs. The estimated cost
of $4,000,000 would serve ap-
proximately 170 residences,
40 businesses and both Old
Town Schools. Water bills
for average residences
would be "typical" said She-
pler, with a $20 base rate and
then $2.50-$3.00 per 1,000 gal-
lons after that. The Engi-
neers were paid $300,000 to
do the study, "looking at all
available options." Meeting
Attendee and City Council-
man Rick Gooding said that
the funding for the study
was obtained "from a hurri-
cane grant that only Dixie
County qualified for."


On June 24, deputies re-
sponded to residence off of
SE 159 Av-
enue where
a property -,
caretaker
went to a
residence
and noticed X
that it had ..
been bur-
glarized. H o
The caretak- Hooper
er stated the property own-
ers were on vacation and
that she went by to check on
the residence when she no-
ticed the burglary When
deputies arrived, they began
a search of the residence
and later located the defen-
dant William J. Hooper,
21years of age from Old
Town.

During Hooper's arrest, they
recovered two firearms and
jewelry along with drug
paraphernalia. Hooper was
arrested for Armed Burglary,
Resisting an Officer, Grand
Theft and Possession of
,Drug Paraphernalia. He was
transported to the Dixie
County Jail land booked on
these charges where later on
June 26,2010, he was
charged with the additional'
count of Violation of Proba-
tion.

Three Engineering firms
who were hired by the Na-
ture Coast Water Authority
to put together plans for pro-
viding water and sewer to
the Old Town area held a
"Town Hall" meeting on
Thursday evening in the Old
Town School Board meeting
room. James Wallace of Ja-
cobs JJG, Jason Shepler of
Mittauer & Associates, and
Christopher Baggett of
Jones Edmunds presented'
strategies to get clean water
to the area around the inter-
section of US 19 and CR 349.
All of the plans presented
involved water for the Old
Town School and the sur-
rounding businesses and
homes; with options for the
residential areas in the
Suwannee Gardens area and


learned a chicken casserole
recipe. Approximately 20 chil-
dren showed up to learn some
kitchen basics, safety and nu-
trition guidelines, and of
course, to eat.

Ronald stopped by to remind

good book. Ronald read two
stories, the first one was en-
titled "The Cow That Went

ry, and were able to help
Ronald read it (they got to do
the laughing parts!) the other
story was called "Commo-

that the task force will help
address the challenges our
state faces."

Holifield announces candidacy


I am Jason Holifield, a can-
didate for the Board of
County Commissioners,
District 4. I am 35 years old
and my beliefs are conserv-
ative.

My goals, if elected, will be
to represent the county by
seeking input from the citi-
zens. I will make my deci-
sions for the county based
on what the public wants.
I will make myself available
to discuss the concerns of
the citizens of our great
county.

I have a wonderful wife,
Stephanie Leon Holifield.
We have been married for
nine years and have three
children, Evan, Grant and
Anna.

I started working at Suwan-
nee Lumber Company when
I was 16 years old and con-
tinued to work there until I
graduated from Dixie Coun-
ty High School. I also
worked with Georgia Pacif-
ic and worked as a correc-
tional officer with the Flori-
da Department of Correc-
tions for five years. I have
been self-employed since
2001, managing rental prop-
erties and a bail bond busi-
ness.


Some of my concerns are
for the future of our chil-
dren, the elderly and our lo-
cal economy. I would like to
see the integrity Dixie
County preserved.

I feel privileged and blessed
to have this opportunity to
serve the people of Dixie. I
appreciate our veterans and
know that without them I
would not be able to run for
public office. Thank you,
veterans!

I humbly ask for your vote

ing election on November
2nd, 2010. My cell number is

Digging up dirt

Sometimes, there's just too much going on to limit a col-
umn to one topic. Or maybe it's just that so much of it does-
n't seem all that important. Whatever, here's what I've man-
aged to dig up over the past week that might be of interest.
First, former vice-president Al Gore, more recently the re-
cipient of a N6bel Peace Prize, Academy Award and acco-
lades from the whole global warming gaggle. If you're
thinking this has to do with his impending divorce, I sup-
pose that could be peripheral factor, but I'll let you decide.
It seems there's a masseuse out in Portland, Oregon, who
says she was "groped" by the former VP back in 2006, and
has kept some stained garments unwashed in her closet
ever since while she decides what to do about the situation.
(Seems to me Bill Clinton had a similar problem at one
time.) I'm no Al Goie fan, but there are massage parlors
and there are "massage parlors," if you get what I mean,
and Big Al might have just made an honest mistake. What I
find amusing is that his accuser described him as a "gig-
gling, crazed sex poodle." That doesn't sound much like Al
Gore, and it doesn't sound much like what a victim of sexu-
al assault would say about her assailant, but then, what do I
know about such things?

Next up, we have former Beatle rocker Paul McCartney. I
know, he's got a title, but I don't refer to the late Elvis Pres-
ley as "Sir," and he was at least as big a rock star, he was an
American and he even pulled a hitch in the Army
Anyway, McCartney says that anyone who doesn't believe
in global warming is just like those who say the Holocaust
never happened. He could have identified the latter group
as prominent members of the Muslim clergy, but of course
that would be "insensitive." Plus, it might get him knocked
off by some Islamo-fascist, and we wouldn't want that to
happen, would we?


Someone McCartney admires is President Obama, who has
troubles of his own without being endorsed by yet another
global warming fantasizer. Obama is now getting some
grief from former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, who
claims that Obama knew all about the deal Blago was work-
ing on to "sell" Obama's US Senate seat or trade it for a cab-
inet post or an ambassadorial appointment. He also said
that Obama was "henpecked," which I'm sure didn't win
him any approval from the First Family. Meanwhile, Oba-
ma remains essentially unscathed, at least by this accusa-
tion. One would think that Blago has enough troubles with-
out getting Obama PO'd.


And then we have Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's son,
Rory, who is running for Governor of Nevada. Rory Reid
seems to be uneasy about Daddy's chances for re-election,
and more so for the impact the connection would have on
his own chances to get elected. So, he's trying something
I've never heard of before. He's running on his first name
only. He has a cutesy TV commercial with a bunch of little
kids giving their endorsements, and only his first name is
mentioned. Beats me how he could get through a campaign
without owning up to his hereditary misfortune, but I wish
him luck.


Seems like I've been picking on Democrats up to now, so I'll
switch to someone who, while never actually in any official
capacity as a Republican, did hang out with some GOP big
shots before getting nabbed for some high-dollar fiscal im-
proprieties a few years back. I'm talking about Jack
Abramoff, a one time lobbyist who became a billionaire be-
fore going to jail and serving three and a half years for bilk-
ing a lot of people out of a lot of money Actually, he got off
easy by testifying against a Republican Congressman, Bob
Ney of Ohio.


Anyway, Abramoff is now working at a Kosher pizzeria in
Baltimore. Other than the light sentence he got off with, I
have no problem with that. I can think of quite a few people
who got rich on ill-gotten gains who should find out what
it's like to work for a living, and I have no doubt that a con-
siderable number of Jack Abramoff's former associates
would also qualify.

Ready for some fireworks this weekend? Me,
too. I have to pick up my daughter Georgia
from summer camp on Saturday, and I have
to take Mitchell to camp on Monday But Sun-
day evening we'll all be home and out at Stephenson's Field
for our annual Independence Day celebration. The kids love
the ooooh and aaaahhh of fireworks. I do, too, but this year,
I suspect my mind will be pondering the revolutionary
events those fireworks represent. I'll be thinking of 1776 and
Revolution and Liberty and Founders and mostly, tyranny
Tyranny has been on my mind for much of this year. (Yes,.
I'm weird, I know that.)

Sure, we live in the USA, and we're free and we don't have
tyrants. Well, we were free, but I could fill up this entire
page of newsprint proving to you that we're
not any more, and that we currently live un- The measu
der a velvet-gloved tyranny Why? Well, let's what he doe
go back to the founding document, why don't
we? The Declaration of Independence that we
celebrate on the Fourth of July lists the rea-
sons that the colonies had for rebelling You have I
against their King and their government.
They felt that these violations of their liberty you have bhi
were so heinous, so awful, that they had no and I
other choice than to pick up their weapons f
and go to war. Surely our current government
would not commit those same sins again, -iAderna
would it? The Founders said of the King:

"He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and
necessary for the public good.He has forbidden his Governors
to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance... and
when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to
them." Guilty and Guilty. Case in point: immigration and
Arizona. The federal government refused for years to "at-
tend to" it's own immigration laws, and when Arizona's gov-
ernor signed a law in desperation that allowed her state to
enforce the laws already in place, she found herself threat-
ened with the full might of the federal fist.

"He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction
foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws;
giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation":.
Guilty. The President has ganged up with the United Na-
tions to support resolutions that stifle American free speech
on Islam, to "investigate" our ally Israel....not to mention
the nightmarish horrors like the Law of the Sea Treaty that
would impose international taxes on Americans, the Nu-
clear Test Ban Treaty, and the "Rights of the Child" Treaty
that strips parents of their rights and hands them over to
the "global village."

"He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither
swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their sub-
stance." Guilty. Just in the health care bill alone, the gov-
ernment created 11ll new taxpayer-funded federal bureacra-


Dixie County Advocate Editor:

We continue to enjoy
reading the e-edition of
the Advocate after over
50 years of perusing it.
Not as many familiar
names as the years have
past but, my wife and I
still have several rela-
tives in the area. My
wife, Dora Vee (Rollison)
Lewis and I, were mar-
ried June 5, 1960. It took
place at her mothers
house, Mrs. Vetta Rolli- .
son; with Rev. Helms of
the Church of God pre-
siding. I had just been
discharged from the Air
Force June 1st; after
spending two years at
the 691st AC&W
Squadron. I was one of the original servicemen sent there
wasn't quite finished and we were billeted at the nearby mo-
tel for about two weeks. We were paid per diem fee our
meals and ate at the local.
ing house near Griner's
Chevrolet.

Our first exposure to
your great, local southern
cuisine! We met at the
Princess Theater and we
can "fast forward" from
there to our 50th anniver-
sary a few days ago. We
lived, worked and raised
a boy and girl in Kansas
City After retirement we
bought a new home in
Lamar, Arkansas. Our an-
niversary celebration was
hosted by brother-in-law
Ss o s Mark and Dora's sister,
Cora Lee (Rollison)
Vollmer in the Kansas
City area. We have won-
dered if anyone has nur-
tured and archive or history of the base? I have several pho-
tos and slides of that 1958-1960 period, including the flood-
ing of the base probably in '58 or '59. Will enclose two pho-
tos of us "before and after" kids, 1960 and 2010.

Greetings to those who might remember. Submitting this
for your consideration if it might have any interest. We just
appreciate our Dixie County Memories.

Sincerely, Dora and Bob Lewis

Mr and Mrs. Lewis:
I don't remember the base, but I spent many, many nights out
at the Drive-In. (My daddy owned it through my teen
years.....does it get any better thanthat for a kid?) If anybody
is maintaining an archive on the base, let me know and I'll
put you in touch with the Lewis'. --Ed


imper tyrannis
cies. One hundred and eleven! The new financial reform bill
has at least a dozen, including one called the "Financial Sta-
bility Oversight Council" with ultimate power over private
business. According to the Washington Post, "any firm--ei-
ther financial or nonfinancial--could come under its con-
trol. The FDIC and Treasury could treat the firm's share-
holders and creditors as they chose, without regard to exist-
ing laws." (Emphasis mine.) So much for property rights,
and laws huh? The government can just come in and strip
you of your business, declare your stock worthless, and
wipe you out with a stroke of the pen...all without ever go-
ing before a judge of any sort. Laws, schmaws, they don't ap-
ply to the government anymore. Just you "small people."

"He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our
towns, and destroyed the lives of our people." Guilty. While
Obama hasn't burnt any towns yet, the Governor of
Louisiana would certainly say that the Pres-
e of a man IS ident has actively interfered with attempts
SWith power. to save the seas and coasts from the BP oil
spill. The government has denied sand
-Plato berms, has refused to suspend the Jones Act
in order to allow more help, and in a coun-
een weighed, try with hundreds of oil skimmers avail-
able, only a pitiful few are being used. The
3n measured, work actually being done seems to be pur-
DU have been posely ineffective: oil cleanup worker Candi
und wanting. Warren said that the cleanup efforts were
all just to make the surface of the beaches
"A Kigts Tale" look good for condo owners and the media
and were "Cosmetic only, this is cosmetic.
They told us not to dig." Ask a commercial fisherman or
shrimper about "destroyed" lives.


"For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable
Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Govern-
ments:" Guilty. When a judge told Obama that a six month
moratorium on deep water oil drilling was illegal, he gave
the finger to separation of powers, ignored the ruling, con-
tinued to enforce the moratorium and threatened just to is-
sue a new one. Most of our economy has been nationalized
via government fiat. Senators wrote Obama a letter this
week begging him not to ignore dur laws to legalize and
"pardon" millions and millions of illegal aliens --and poten-
tial democratic voters for November, of course-- with an
unassailable executive order.

So you answer the question: do we still live in a free coun-
try? WWTFD? (What would the Founders do?) We don't
know what they'd do now, but we know what they wrote
then in the Declaration: "Our repeated Petitions have been
answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character
is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is un-
fit to be the ruler of a free people."

Yeah, what they said. Come November, let's send The One
and his cronies in Congress to the back of the unemploy-
ment line. Now pass me a sparkler, will you? Let freedom
ring!

Dear Editor


Hey, mama read that you wanted to know what people were
reading this summer. Well, she just got done with a book
called Sour Grapes and it was written by a local author
named M.E. Landress. She is from Cedar Key, but I believe
she has now moved to Old Town. Mama said the book is
VERY good...its about a woman who wants to kill her hus-
band..LOL!! Anyway, she also has 2 other books out. She got
Sour Grapes from the Patio Salon down the road from my
house. She said you should check it out!:)

FWC busts Dixie people for
selling freshwater fish,
growing dope and taking pills

Officer Brent Bowlen re-
ceived information that an
individual was advertising
freshwater game fish for
sale on a local radio station.
Bowlen contacted the indi-
vidual to confirm what
kind of fish he had. The in-
dividual stated he had large-
mouth bass and bream for
sale. A short time later, Of-
ficer Bowlen met with the
individual and found that
he was attempting to sell
freshwater game fish. One
largemouth bass and six
bream were seized as evi-
dence and a citation was is-
sued for the violation.

Officer Justin Allen and
Brent Bowlen found several
marijuana patches on pri-
vate property. While on
scene, a vehicle was heard
approaching their location.
The officers hid and ob-
served two male subjects go
straight to the marijuana
plants and begin pulling


the plants. Both subjects
were arrested for felony cul-
tivation of marijuana.
Investigator Ayers assisted
in processing the evidence.

While leaving the scene
above, Investigator Ayers,
Officers Allen and Bowlen
observed a vehicle parked
in middle of the road with
its lights on. A male subject
was passed out in the dri-
ver seat. Smoke was billow-
ing from the compartment
and from under the hood.
Fearing that the vehicle
would catch fire or the sub-
ject would suffer carbon
monoxide poisoning, the of-
ficers removed the individ-
ual from the car. When they
were able to revive him, the
subject threw a bottle of
pills into the woods. ,He told
the officers he had bought
the pills from an unknown
person earlier. He stated he
must have taken too many
pills and he passed out. The
individual was arrested for
felony possession of a con-
trolled substance. The sub-
ject also had an active war-
rant out of Georgia.

TWa ttiJers
by Bonnie Wilson

This weekend my husband
Dave and I decided to do a
little trail riding by our-
selves as our next ride with
the group is not until Sep-
tember. However a few of us
die-hards will be venturing
off in the early morning
hours to- get in a ride or two
before the heat really sets
in. I know
what your
thinking, it's
way too hot *. .,
to ride! How- .'
ever, we are .
thinkingour
horses need- '
ed the exer-
cise and so
do we. It's
not too bad
if you get
out early
What's that
old say-
ing...early to
bed and ear-
ly to rise?
And to ride too. After all
you have to get up early to
feed them anyway.

We loaded our horses into
the trailer and headed out to
Tidewater Trail Head in
Goethe Forest. Dave and I
really enjoy riding at
Goethe.

Goethe's Tidewater trails
are truly a beautiful forest
to ride in. The trails are
well marked and even I can
follow them without any dif-
ficulties. If your reading be-
tween the lines here, then
you know I'm not the best
when it comes to leading a
trail ride. I really believe I
could get lost in a paper
bag!

This forest is really remark-
able. Lots of shady, willowy
pine and oak tree lined
trails that are genuinely
breathtaking, Our horses,
Buddy and Coby seem to en-
joy the ride as muqh as we
do. The air was warm, and a
bit on the humid side but
Dave and I are having a
wonderful time anyway It's
the small pleasures in life
that make your day Espe-
cially when a small breeze
blows gently across your
face and makes it all worth
it. It really is worth the ef-
fort to get up early and get
out on the trails. Just how
could anyone not enjoy be-
ing in God's country and liv-

ing life to the fullest. It's a
natural high.

guess I can get a little high-
spirited while riding down
the trail upon the back of
my sweet little brown-eyed
gelding and looking at
America thru the eyes of
one who is on horseback. I
guess you have to be sitting
where I am on horseback to
appreciate not only the view
but the sights and sounds of
life all around you. But
maybe not, perhaps you
may enjoy a
walk thru this
riI' beautiful forest
, and a chance to
'f" *see the sights
that are here
too. The choice
is yours to take.

As I look
around us this
morning, I see
a beautiful day
* full of promise.
Not a dark
-cloud in the
._. sky, only big
fluffy clouds
and a blue sky
above. A gentle breeze to my
back, and I can hardly con-
tain this bubbly, happy feel-
ing of contentment. All
around us I see birds flying,
squirrels leaping from tree
to tree, deer moving quietly
in the near distance. Coby
snorts as we stand still for a
moment and he looks at a
deer that is looking back at
him. The doe does not move
nor does she seem to mind
having an audience watch-
ing her. Soon, she moves off
at a lazy saunter. That was
incredible! I think she
knew we were no threat to
her, although Dave thinks
the heat may be her reason-
ing for the slow departure. I
choose to believe she felt.no
danger. Perhaps she is just a
people watcher. A chorus of
"home on the range" comes
to my mind although I did
not see any antelopes, there
were no discouraging
words.
It's moments of .pure bliss
for me out on our trail
rides. I do love riding with
our group but I'm really en-
joying being out on the trail
with Dave and our boys to-
day It's a beautiful morning
indeed. You too can join us
on trail rides. Contact us at
levy2@flahorse.com. What
more can be said; just
"don't fence me in.." Until
next time, happy trails to
you!



Celebrate Safely

This 4TH of July

The fourth of July is a time
for family gatherings, cook-
outs,
Fireworks and celebration.
This year please celebrate
safely.


Clear ground to min-
eral soil (dirt) before building
a campfire. Ground should
also be cleared of all debris
at least 10' around the fire
preventing the possibility of
spreading.
Never leave your
campfire unattended and
when you do leave make sure
that it is dead out (no visible
smoke or fire).
Recent wildfires in Arizona
are believed to have been
started
By an unattended campfire.
Outdoor grills should
never be left unattended and
coals should be extinguished
and removed from the site .
not dumped upon the ground.
Fireworks should
never be launched on or over
areas holding heavy vegeta-
tion.
Avoid parking off
road vehicles in high grass
areas. Heat transfer from the
engine, catalytic converter, or
exhaust pipe may cause the
grass to ignite.

Remember that even with re-


Eastern Equi
Encephalitis
cases are increE
Just last week,
cases were repo
Make sure your h
are vaccinate

that he was looking for a
place to stay," and that he
"had been sleeping in the
woods and wherever he
could find a place for the last
week." Moore told the officer
that he was holding his side

that he had not registered a
change of address. Moore
was arrested and transport-

Perry Prison Dog
Training Program
Celebrating Third
Anniversary and

Graduation
Ceremony for Latest
Canine Class
The dog days of summer
seem an appropriate time
for the latest four-legged ca-
nine class at Taylor Correc-
tional Institution (C.I.) Work
Camp to graduate, and si-
multaneously
celebrate the
program's
third anniver-
sary. Ten more
dogs will walk
down the aisle
at the prison .
work camp in .
Perry on June .. ,,
30, 2010 at 10 Zoey is loot
a.m. This suc-
cessful partnership between
the Florida Department of
.Corrections and the Talla-
hassee Animal Service Cen-
ter has resulted in the suc-
cessful adoption of 162 dogs
so far from the eight to ten
week program.

The Undergoing Training
and. Obedience in Prison to
Increase Adoptability
(UTOPIA) program, which
began on June 4, 2007, bene-
fits both the inmates who
work with the dogs and the
animals by making them
more adoptable. The goal of
the program is to take dogs
with behavioral problems
and teach inmates to social-
ize and train them to in-
crease their chances of be-
ing adopted.

"UTOPIA and
our other dog
programs have
been success- -'
ful from the
start, because
everybody Eve is
wins. The dogs.
get adopted, the inmates
learn a trade and the own-
ers get a well-trained com-
panion who may have had a
very different fate if not for
this program," said Depart-
ment of Corrections Secre-
tary Walt McNeil.

To date, 162 dogs have grad-
uated and all have been
adopted. The ten dogs grad-
uating on June 30 are all
available for adoption. Over
200 inmates have participat-
ed in UTOPIA during the
past year. Working With the
dogs is a regular work as-
signment for the inmates at
the institution, giving them
hands-on experience that
may lead to jobs with ani-
mals upon release.


"Staff and inmates love the
program. Inmates take
ownership of their assigned
dogs and take great pride in
their accomplishments,"
said Warden Duane Spears,
noting that 34 of the 36 in-
mates involved with the
UTOPIA program have been
disciplinary free for the last
six months.

Food and equipment for the'
UTOPIA program are donat-
ed, so there is little cost to
the Department. Each ca-
nine is leash trained and
taught tricks of the trade
(sit, come, stay)
for a well-be-
haved dog and
life-long com-
panion. In addi-
tion, all canines
are crate


king for a home


trained and
housebroken.
The UTOPIA
adoption fee is


$100 to $150 and
goes to the Animal Service .
Center. Services included in
the adoption fee are: behav-
ioral assessment, health as-
sessment, rabies vaccine,
tag and certificate, other
vaccinations appropriate for
age, .sterilization surgery,
AVID microchip, Heart-
worm testing for dogs six
months and older and basic
obedience training.

uates, visit

ment's website at

"No one intends to be a
drunk driver, it just hap-
pens, whether they've had
way too many drinks or just
one too many," said Ed
Schatzman, senior vice pres-
ident, Automotive Services,
AAA Auto Club South. "Call
volume steadily increases
every Independence Day

to get as many drunk dri-

ado love a ripe,
s watermelon.
Every time we cut into one I
am taken back to Hart
Springs when I was little
and would camp there with
my family. I can close my
eyes and hear Jeremiah Was
A Bull Frog playing on the
juke box for the hundredth
time and feel the wood from
the bridge under my feet. I
am sunburned, waterlogged
and having the time of my
life. Eating a watermelon is
a group event. Think about
it. When have you ever cut
into a watermelon by your-
self for only yourself? You
tell everyone in the family
and maybe call some friends
and invite them over. It's a
delicious, messy treat. There
is nothing better than the
perfect watermelon and
nothing more disappointing
than a bad watermelon. In
the past the only thing I
knew to do was to eyeball it
and hope for the best so
when I saw some hints to
'finding a good watermelon I
took note.
Buy a watermelon with a
dull rind, not a shiny one. It
should be firm but give a lit-
tle when pressed. Look for
the spot where the melon
rested on the ground; a yel-

FWC moves
toward prohibiting
fox and
coyote enclosures

,The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) voted
Wednesday to move forward
with a draft rule prohibiting
the operation of fox and coy-
ote enclosures. The decision
followed consideration of a
suite of options to improve
the process governing the
enclosures and listening to
several hours of comments
from the public.
The presentation by Maj.
Curtis Brown with the
FWC's Captive Wildlife and
Investigations Section fo-
cused on humane treatment
of foxes and coyotes and
translocation of disease. He
proposed three options for
consideration, including
prohibiting the enclosures
outright, continuing to al-
low the enclosures with
stricter regulations or phas-
ing out the enclosures by
January of 2013.
After six hours of discus-


low-wnite, yelow or a
cream-yellow color spot sug-
gests ripeness and a white
or pale green spot means it
isn't ready A lot of black
seeds means the melon is
ripe and sweet. A lot of soft
white seeds means the fruit
was probably picked too ear-
ly If you save the seeds you
can even roast and eat them.
Just rinse, spread them on a
baking sheet and pat dry.
Toss with olive oil and salt
and bake at 325 degrees un-
til crisp, 15-20 minutes. After
everyone has eaten their fill
take the leftover watermelon
and cut into cubes. Puree
and press through a fine
sieve and you have water-
melon juice. You can, drink
this juice or you can pour it
into a shallow airtight con-
tainer and freeze. Let it
thaw slightly and mash it
with a fork and you have
slushies or you can try this
next recipe. It has a few
more steps but its delicious
and kids love it.

sion and testimonies from
about 80 members of the
public, whose responses var-
ied from calling the practice
a "valued family tradition"'
to a "cruel practice and
threat to traditional hunt-
ing," Chairman Rodney Bar-
reto began the decision-mak-
ing portion of the meeting.
"As long as I've been
with the Commission, we've
vigorously supported hunt-
ing in Florida. I don't be-
lieve this is fair chase," Bar-
reto said. "I feel Florida
needs to be a leader in
America. We need to end the
use of these enclosures and
end them now."
For nearly a year, the
FWC has been working to
make the right'decisions re-
garding the controversial
practice of chasing foxes
and coyotes with dogs with-
in enclosures. Last Septem-
ber, FWC Commissioners di-
rected the agency's law en-
forcement staff to.review
the permitting process and
research the history and
number of such enclosures
in the state. The Commis-
sion also ceased issuing fox
and coyote enclosure per-
mits at that time.

So the next time you see that
truck on the side of the road
piled high with watermel-

and buy a few. Get the gang
together and make some
new summertime memories.
Thanks for the recipes! I
love hearing from you and
look forward to your e-
mails. Send me any tips that
have made your life easier
or recipes that have made
your taste buds sing! We are
all in the same boat. There
will always be empty bellies
and dirty dishes. There will
always be dust on the table
and dirt on the floor. A
little bit of humor and ad-
vice cam make the trip so
much easier.

At the February 2010 Com-
mission meeting, Commis-
sioners approved the tempo-
rary prohibition of chasing
foxes and coyotes in enclo-
sures. FWC staff was direct-
ed to work with stakehold-'
ers to address certain issues
of concern regarding the en-
closures and to draft rules
guiding them.
FWC staff will pub-
lish a draft rule that details
the definition of an enclo-
sure, contains language ad-
dressing the prohibition and
establishes a timeline for re-
linquishing foxes and coy-
otes currently in possession.
Staff was directed to bring a
final rule back for consider-
ation to the September meet-
ing in Westin. FWC staff
also agreed to explore fur-
ther options for dog-hunting
of foxes and coyotes on open
public lands around the
state.

#1. "Can I plant citrus
this time of year?" Yes, as
long as you keep the newly
planted trees hydrated.
Also, be careful not to over
water them to cause root
rot. Fact is, in our zone,
planting citrus in July / Au-
gust is more advisable than
fall asit gives the root sys-
tem more time to develop
before the.first frost hits.
#2. "What is the best
kind of lemon tree for
our area?" Meyer's and
Behr's are the most popular
with the huge Ponderosa
coming in close behind.
#3. "What material is
good to make a compost
pile?" Dead leaves, grass
clippings and veggie scraps.
#4. "Why can't I buy
sod from most garden
centers?" Sod in large
quantities is usually cut and
placed one piece on top of
another on a pallet for ship-
ping. Since the grass is alive
and giving off gases, a


FWC refines gopher
tortoise permitting
process


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) approved re-
visions to its gopher tor-
toise permitting guidelines
on Wednesday during its
meeting in Lake Mary.
The FWC approved a man-
agement plan for gopher tor-
toises in September 2007,
providing conservation
measures to ensure gopher
tortoises thrive in Florida.
The plan also calls for per-
mitting guidelines to ensure
Florida meets the 'tortoise's
habitat needs now and in
the future. The guidelines,
initially approved in 2008,
are revised annually as the
FWC learns more from in-
teractions with stakeholders
and implementation of the
permitting process.
The current revisions came
,after meetings with stake-
holders during the past year.
The input received was in-
corporated into the revi-
sions approved by the Com-
mission,
The revisions to the permit-
ting guidelines are designed
to achieve the conservation
objectives for the manage-
ment plan. One objective ad-
dresses decreasing gopher
tortoise deaths on lands pro-
posed for development
through responsible reloca-
tion. Another objective calls
for relocating gopher tor-

tremendous amount of heat
is created between the lay-
ers. This gives the pallet of
piled up sod a Very short
shelf life. The intense heat
will destroy the root system
as the grass will become suf-
focated in between the lay-
ers. The true answer is buy
from a sod farm and make
sure it .is freshly cut.
#5.- "Is there anything
deer will not eat?" Ever-
greens, cedars,cypress and
oleanders for sure. I've been
told they will not nibble on
butterfly bushes and there
must be a few other things,
but they even eat pines
cones if food is scarce
enough.
# 6. "Is cloth weed
block a waste of money?"
There is a lot of weed block
being sold that is of inferior
quality that is made of ei-
ther latex or pure plastic
sheets that are not worth
your money, time or effort.
The best buy is professional
fabric that allows water to
get through as lasting for'
years to come.
Even though it is hot and
humid, be thankful for the
refreshing rains. Think pos-
itively as you gaze out of
your windows at the pretty
flowers you planted this
past spring. Stay cool. Keep
your questions coming.
Enjoy your walk in your
own garden, God bless, Art
Wyckoff


toises to where they no
longer occur or where den-.,,
sities are low.
The revised guidelines clari-
fy mitigation contributions
and the 25-foot-avoidance
guidelines to prevent habi-
tat islands around burrows.
More explicit instructions
for permitting and mitiga-
tion requirements for juve-
niles also are a part of the
revision. In addition, new
guidelines were set for re-
cipient sites used for re-
search and for restocking
requirements for public con-
servation lands.
Mitigation contributions
will now be evaluated annu-
ally in conjunction with the
Consumer Price Index. Pro-
posed revisions for relocat-
ing gopher tortoises to pub-
lic lands were postponed for
consideration until further
discussions occur with in-
terested parties.
"The gopher tortoise is list-
ed as threatened in Florida,
and these revisions to the
permitting guidelines will
help us achieve gopher tor-
toise conservation," said
Deborah Burr, Gopher Tor-
toise Management Plan co-
ordinator. "The permitting
process continues to be re-
fined, and we'll continue to
review the guidelines on an
annual basis to be sure we
are providing the highest
standards for managing the
gopher tortoise into perpe-
tuity"

SUWANNEE VALLEY PLAYERS
ANNOUNCE AUDITIONS
FOR "THE NIGHT WE KNOCKED THE
CRITIC DEAD"
The Suwannee Valley
Players, our area community
theater, announce upcoming
auditions for their fall show
"The Night We Knocked the
Critic Dead". This is a come-
dy by L. Don Swartz and is
produced by special arrange-
ment with Eldridge Publish-
ing Company.
Mikey Chigger, a nasty
newspaper critic, turns up
dead at the Chestnut Hollow
Little Theater's final re-
hearsal of "The Curse of In-
fant Isle". The players,
desperate for a box office
success, will go to any
lengths to avoid a scandal.
And that means moving the
critic's body from the rest
room where he died to a
nearby parking lot. That way
the late Mr. Chigger will keep
:..* L .ssI$I MM


his dignity, even though he
doesn't really deserve it, but
even more importantly, the
theater won;t get bad press
such as "The play was so bad
it killed the critic!"
But just when they think
they might squeak by, a de-
tective arrives on the scene
to declare that the critic has
been murdered! This spoof
about community theater is
sure to knock you dead with
laughter.
The Auditions will
be held on July 24 at 10 am at
the theater and on July 27 at
7 pm at the theater. In addi-
tion to actors there will be a
need for backstage help, tech
crew help, and various other
duties. If you are interested
in any aspect of the produc-
tion, please attend one of the
auditions. More information
can be obtained from our
website at www.svplayers.org
or by calling the theater at
352 493 ARTS.


All donors will receive a recognition
.tem and cholesterol screening.
All donors in the ronth of 3July will
be entered to Win a gas grill.

FIRST BAPTIST OF
STEINHATCHEE NEWS

# Several of our Sunday School
classes had a "pizza blast" at
the Perry Pizza Hut. They left
about 5:00 P.M. This was a quar-
terly Sunday School reward trip
forurur children. There were 23
children and the adults. Our
teachers were Brittany Welsh (
ages 4-5 yrs), Gwen Carmichael
teaching ages 6 & 7 year olds
and dennifer Ellison ages 8-11
year olds. Their "pizza blast"
was an absolute blast! Thank
you drivers, teachers and
helpers!
# Come join us on July 4th for
a mini piano concert. Gilbert
Macias and his wife will be
playing the piano and singing
during both the morning and
evening service. You will be tru-
ly blessed as we celebrate July
4th together. Are you still
putting IN GOD WE TRUST"
on your mail, letters & pack-
ages? Remember...if you feel
you cannot tell people about
the LORD..., that's ridiculous,,
You pan always share what
GOD has done in your life! And
this is another way for you to
do it! This little truth," IN GOD
WE TRUST" can travel around
the world! Just write it on all
your correspondence and let
people see it on all your
mail............ for we do trust in
GOD!
# Let's celebrate our Veterans.
and all our Military Branches
this July 4th! Thousands of
men and women have given
their lives for our freedom.
Let's celebrate America's
Troops, volunteers, National
Guard, the families here at
home, past Presidents and any-
one that has fought, giving
"their all", for our freedom.
Let's celebrate the red, white
and blue. Red stands for the
blood shed on foreign lands and
here in the states. Because of
the brave...we are free! It is not
only on July 4th, we celebrate
our freedom but everyday we
walk here in the U.S.A. The
white may stand for thc pure,
the strong pure honorable be-
lief that we are a "Nation under
God"! The blue might stand for
the wisdom and the honesty by
which our forefathers made the
decisions for this great country.
They prayed and worked hard
to help America become what it


is today! America is blessed. We
are the richest people in the
world by many standards! No
other country has what Ameri-
ca has! Lqt us pray this prayer
together: Dear LORD, hold our
troops in Your loving hands!
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless each of them and their
families for the selfless acts
they perform for us in our time
of need. Please keep them safe
and bring them back home!
Amen
# We had special music from
Sylvia and Sam Gaston's daugh-
ter-in-law, Crystal Gaston. She
sang; "Do They See JESUS In
Me?" Harry Gatlin sang three
specials in song, that blessed
our hearts too! Let's remember
to pray for the safety of our
youth group as they traveled to
Orlando for a trip. You will hear
all about the FFF they had, fun,
fellowship and focused on the
LORD! JUST A THOUGHT:
Each day we choose the ONE
we will follow in-life! Pray that
our youth/ young adults will
make the right choices... as they
walk down this pathway of life!
Thank GOD for all the praise
reports this week within our
church family! Our GOD is....
an awesome GOD! Visitors al-
ways welcome...members al-
ways expected In Christian
love! Sandy Coleman

What a- good dayto be: in-
the house of the Lord, with
the rain coming down and
God's glory all around.
Pastor RWchardson brought
the message titled" What
Season are you in"? taken
from Ecclesiastes 3:1.
To every thing there is a
season, and a time to every
purpose under the heaven:
God has a plan that is big-
ger than anything that we
can imagine. God is calling
all of us to stretch our
imaginations to receive and
absorb what HE is desiring
to do. Spiritually, christians
go through all types of sea-
sons.... Moutain top experi-
ences,slow steady growth,
leaps and bounds, valleys,
droughts, dry places, trou-
ble, etc. Sometimes we don't
handle our seasons very
well. Ecclesiastes 3:17 de-
clares that there is a time
appointed for every matter,
every purpose, and every
work, in other words God
has an appointed time in
which to do everything he
has planned. We need to
be submitted to his timing
in our life, and not grow im-
patient waiting for some-
thing to happen. Let us be
encouraged to repent from
any impatience we have had
and make a fresh surrender
to God's perfect timing for
everything


Please study the plan of

ian should live and
how God expects us to live.
Bro. Billy brought out

" to'ChrIst'byli-vihg for him
and if we are not christians
if we invite Him into our
our hearts, he will wash
away every sin and will re- .
member them no more.
What a blessing it is to
know that we have
a Heavenly Father who


cares for us.

The church family is gear-
