Dixie not letting "a crisis go to waste"


Never let a good crisis go to
waste is not only the mantra
of the Obama administra-
tion, Dixie County politici-
cians are using it to help
Dixie, too. At.Thursday
morning's regular Commis-
sion meeting, Commission-
er Mark Hatch took Phil
Bishop, of North Florida
Professional Services to
task for "not doing like I
told you to," and using the
encroaching oil in the gulf
to help push through per-
mits for some Dixie County
projects that are taking
longer than expected. Hatch
continued, saying that "We
beg for (grant) money and
then we can't spend it.,"
Bishop replied that dealing
with the Department of En-
vironmental Protection has
been "frustrating," but he-
felt that the oil spill crisis
'card should be kept in hand
until the permitting process
goes further up the chain of
command. He said that his
firm has been working dili-
gently, and that "DEP is the
only thing holding this up,"
mainly due to the inexperi-
ence of an entry-level em-r
ployee who is holding up the
permitting process. Com-
missioner Gene Higginboth-
am said that "a simple pro-
ject turned into a nightmare


ua waterl alU s rDana Cannon Johnsonuuuy aU U
Dana cannon Johnson


because somebody at DEP is
being difficult."

Shower buildings that are
planned for Gornto Springs
are causing problems be-
cause County ordinances
-and the LDR forbids build-
ings in "the floodway" Bish-
op recommended that in or-
der to facilitate the permit-,
ting process in the future,
that the LDR be changed to
permit small non-insured
-structures in the floodway

Emergency Services Manag-
er Tim Alexander agreed
that the oil spill provides an
opportunity to get things ac-
complished, saying "Now
would be a great time to
move, and to move quickly."


Alexander said that the cri-
sis will bring a few possible
jobs to the area. Florida'
Crown Workforce in Old
Town is taking applications
and will hire 80 people who
are unemployed or who
have been impacted by the
spil to do shore line assess-
ment and cleanup.

Pay rates will start at $18
andgo up to $32 per hour.
Applicants will attend and
be paid for. an initial train-
ing class, and'then placed
on hold until needed.
Alexander said that no-in-
terest "Bridge loans" are
also available to oil-impact-
ed small businesses for
$25,000.

Republican candidates visit First District


Ed Hendry David Scholl


Three Republican candidates
for Alan Boyd's seat in the
Congressional District Two
race spoke at the Dixie County
Republican's meeting on Mon-
day evening. Eddie Hendry,
Jr., Ron McNeil, and David
School appeared to speak to
residents and answer ques-
tions. Steve Southerland was
unable to be present but sent
his representative, Ms. Car-
olyn Land, from Mayo.

Each candidate spoke for a
few minutes and then they an-
Sswered questions as a panel.


Ed Hendry, an Army veteran,
Citadel graduate, and pharma-
ceutical representative, said
that "this election is about
your children and your chil-
dren's children. Our country is
going through a terrible transi-
tion and we've got to stop it in
November." He said that the
country is being dragged down
in a mass of debt and loss of
individual rights by a runaway
administration and that "Our
Representative, good ol' boy
Alan Boyd, is going right
along with it."


Ron McNeil


Candidate David Scholl, an
airline pilot and retired USAF
Officer, joked to giggles from
the crowd that "I was born in
Honolulu, but unlike our Presi-
dent, I have a birth certifi-
cate." In a soft-spoken voice,
be said that "the biggest threat
we're facing is the threat from
our President and Alan Boyd
and this out of control spend-
ing. I'm for less government,
and if we do tax cuts like
Ronald Reagan did, I'm confi-
dent it will work."

Mepetamphetamine arrests


At approximately 2:30am on
July 1, 2010, the Sheriff's Of-
fice received information
about the manufacturing of
methamphetamine at a resi-
dence in Old Town. Acting
upon this information, Sher-
iff's Deputies responded to
the location and approached
the residence. Upon arrival,
they told the suspect, James
D. Bryant, 39 years of age, of
Old Town, the reason for
their presence.

Once confronted with the in-
formation the deputies re-
vealed, Bryant took the
deputies to the rear of the
home where he produced
the methamphetamine and
admitted to the ownership
of the drugs and drug para-
phernalia used in the manu-
facturing of methampheta-
mine. Along with the para-
phernalia, deputies seized
approximately 2400 grams of
methamphetamine from the
home.

Bryant was then arrested
for Trafficking in Metham-
phetamine, Manufacturing
of a Controlled Substance


Bryant Steele


and Possession of Drug
Paraphernalia.

On Saturday July 3, 2010;
while on routine patrol, a
Sheriff's Deputy clocked a
1993 Ford pick-up traveling
84mph north of Cross City.
During the subsequent traf-
fic stop, the deputy noticed
that the driver, Robert Steele
Jr., 61 years of age, appeed
to be exhibiting signs .o
someone who was under the
influence of methampheta-
mine. The driver who was
then questioned about his


activity and the presence of
narcotics consented to a
consensual search of the ve-
hicle. A search of the vehi-
cle revealed 20 grams of
methamphetamine and
$479.00 in cash.

Steele, who is from
Brooksville, was then ar-
rested and transported to
the Dixie County Jail where
he was booked on the
charges of Possession of
Methamphetamine.


Father re-enters engulfed home to

savebaby from burning cib


Early in the morning on
Thursday, a family in Old
Town were awakened by a
boom noise and sparking
from the baby's room.
Kristy Chirieleison and
Ernest Kiser started gather-
ing up their children, and
each assumed that the other
had their one-month old
baby. By the time they
woke
their two
boys and
got out-
side,
they real-
ized that
the baby,
Angel,
was still
in the
house,-in
her crib.

Ernest
ran back
intothe
burning
house to
save the
baby, All that's hl
who was
in the crib,
but the crib itself was on
fire. Luckily, the baby was
fine and he scooped the in-
fant up and ran outside.
The family was transported
to Shands and treated most-
ly for smoke inhalation.


They got out with nothing
but the charred clothes on
their backs, and the kids
were in the hospital in the
free "stop drop and roll" T-


shirts from the fire depart-
ment. Everything they own
is burnt. On Thursday after;
noon, a family member was
looking for a litter of pup-
pies that had been in the
home at the time of the fire.
Sadly, the puppies do not
seem to have survived the
blaze.


eft of the Chirieleison home


SThe family is getting some
help from the Red Cross,
but donations are needed of
almost everything. The fam-
ily had only recently moved
to Old Town, and has tem-
porarily returned to the
town they lived in previous-
ly Tan is five years old, Joel
is two years old, and the
baby Angel is one month
old. Mom Kristy can be
reached on her cell phone at
386-623-5597.


Early Saturday morning at
approximately 5:50am, a
Sheriff's deputy on routine
patrol noticed two white-
males riding bicycles north
on U.S. 19 in the southbound
lane just north of
Cross City As he
approached the
two males, one of
them stopped
and the other
identified as
Patrick Reaves
continued north-
bound. Reaves
was ordered sev-
eral times to stop
but he failed to
do so until he
had ridden off to the edge of
the right-of-way where he
threw a pack down as he was
leaving the bicycle and flee-
ing into the woods.

A subsequent check on
Reaves revealed that he had
two felony Violation of Pro-
bation warrants for his ar-
rest. At this point, the Cross
City Correctional K-9-Team
was called to assist in the
search. As Reaves was being
tracked through lands be-
longing to the Campell
Group, a caller called an off-


duty deputy and told him
about picking up a white
male on 351 South and deliv-
ering him to a residence just
outside of Cross City The
caller stated that the white
male was wet as if
he had been walk-
ing through the
woods. Once the
residence was
identified,
deputies respond-
ed to the location
where they con-
fronted the home-
owner about the
whereabouts of
Reaves. The home-
owner stated that
Reaves had in fact shown up
there that morning and that
he was inside. During the
search of the residence,
Patrick Reaves, 25 years of
age, of Old Town was found
hiding in the attic of the
home.

Reaves was then arrested and
charged with 2 counts of Vio-
lation of Probation, Resisting
an Officer without Violence,
Trespassing on Posted Lands
and Possession of Burglary
Tools.

Every Week without Fail, Since July 1, 1921
S 2010 Dixie County Advocate


Behold the economist

There is a Yiddish term, chutzpaa," (pronounced "HOOTS-
pah") that means extreme, unmitigated gall.'An example is
found in a joke about an elderly woman; obviously of limit-
ed means, who has a'stand on a street corner where she
sells bagels for a quarter. Every daya young man stops by
and she asks him if he'd like to buy a bagel. He gives her a
quarter but doesn't take the merchandise, obviously just
wanting to do a little something for the old lady This goes
on for months until one day he comes by anid as usual
leaves a quarter without taking a bagel, but this'time she
stops him and-says, "Wait a minute, they now cost 35
cents."

This fictional old lady had chutzpa, but she was a piker
compared to the Speaker of the United States House of Rep-'
resentatives. I'm talking about Nancy Pelosi, who recently
got some favorable press for imposing a degree of fiscal'dis-.
cipline on fellow House members.

Or perhaps I should say subordinate House members.
Here's what Madame Speaker has imposed upon the lesser
members of the lower house: No more flying first class. Sit
your gluteal extremities in the narrow, economy-class seats,
and besides that payfor your own drinks! This should be
enough to make every US representative in the 111th Con-
gress asking the obvious question about Ms. Pelosi's fiscal
policies and how they are distributed; but this doesn't seem
to have happened. Members of her own party appear un-
willing to break ranks over the loss of a perk, and even the
Republicans haven't said much.

Just last week, the Gainesville Sun did a nice puff-piece,
making Nancy P. look like'she was out to save .the taxpayers
a few million, just in time for the November elections.

That's fine, but some of us think it would be more appropri-
ate if Madame Speaker would simply lead by example. Un-
fortunately, the example she's leading by doesn't exactly
comport with the fiscal discipline she has imposed upon
her subordinates.

Since she first took over as Speaker of the House following
the 2006 election, Nancy Pelosi has been using the US Air
Force like it was her own personal fleet of private jets. She
had to'have one big enough to make the trip from Washing-
ton DC to California without having to stop and refuel.
What a shame that an official of her rank might have to sit
around on the tarmac for a few minutes while her taxpayer-
funded private jet got a fill up for the rest of the trip home!
If you think that's bad, consider this: From her first year as
House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi used her position to obtain the
use of military aircraft to transport members of her family
on trips having nothing to do with government business,
and not even involving any member of Congress, not even
herself. Strictly personal stuff. George W. Bush was Presi-
dent at the time, and it wouldn't have taken much of that to
have the establishment media on his case for abusing the
prerogatives of his office, but they had little to say about
Pelosi and her pals jet-setting on the taxpayers' dime.

It is generally accepted that the 25th Amendment to the
Constitution designates the Speaker of the House as being
third in line for the presidency, after the vice-president; this
has never been tested and hopefully never will. However,
Ms. Pelosi tends to act almost as though she has the office
in her sights. What bothers me most, though, is why Presi-
dent Obama is willing to tolerate her arrogance. Perhaps
it's their mutual contempt for subordinates. Why President
Bush went along with this is also of concern, however pres-
idential responsibility for such matters diminishes with
time, and in any case Obama can't blame this one on
George W without raising the question of. why he hasn't ad-
dressed the matter himself.

Otherwise, I'd have a lot less of a problem with a few con-
gressmen flying first class than with one using the Air
Force as a personal private jet fleet. And I can't help but
wonder why some of the commoners who have been rele-
gated to economy class aren't calling attention to Madame
Pelosi's double standard.
Mr Prater: There's another great Yiddish word that Nancy
Pelosi should learn: mensch. It means "a person of integrity
or honor..a person of noble character to emulate." While
she's got lots of chutzpah she is, by no means, a mensch.--ed

1 think it was e.e. cummings who said that
The world is mud-luscious and puddle-won-
derful." I've always been a big fan of, mud
id puddles, and Lord knows, my kids sure
are. Mitchell can't seem to walk past the smallest puddle
without running up to it with a look of absolute glee on his
face and then-with a'big jump-*stomping* in it. His need to
jump in the puddle and the degree to which he's dressed up
and going somewhere "important" seem to vary directly.
Yep, he's a boy and is drawn to mud and dirt, like all the oth-
er boys before him. They can't help it. Even I get sucked in
by the call of the puddle siren now and then. And if you saw
me% walking back to the office from the Courthouse on
Thursday, that was NOT me who splashed in the puddle in
front of UCS. It was just somebody who looked like me. I
swear. (Hey,, you're ineer to old or too. serious '
tojump'in a puddle...and if you are, I feel bad f f.he.isightM
for you. Go live a little.) e: lsyiw/

The rain has cooled everything off enough grass sprdingl
that you'can be outside without risking heat Ias power to
exhaustion, and the streets and driveways are
just chock-full of good stomping puddles, so at simple #lings
my house, we've been spending more time mssae
outside. Lots of people have "happy hour" af-
ter work, I know, to help them discharge the faice, fa~i
worries of the work day, but at my house,-we
go outside and watch "the chicken channel."

I love my job, I do, but working in such a public spot seems
to attract every single crackpot, nutjob and delusional-and-
off-her-medication-Aunt-Ethel out of the woodwork...and
they all have my phone number on speed dial, apparently
Sure, I get stressed out, just like you do, and by 5:00 I'm usu-
ally developing that headache...you know the one right be-
hind your eyes that you get from restraining your impulse
to strangle annoying people with delusionsof self-impor-
tance who think they can rant and rave at you just because
you work for a living? Yeah, that headache. We all get it,
don't we?

There's nothing like coming home at the end of a long day,
changing into my home "comfy" clothes...stripping off my
*ahem*foundational garments (you with me here, ladies?)
and then sitting in the backyard grass with the kids, watch-
ing chickens, geese, and ducks waddle about chasing bugs
and nibbling corn. It's a big, giant soul-cleansing "aahhhhh"
that's more restorative than any hot toddy, and has no ad-
verse side effects other than some really good fertilizer
come growing season. I know that many people live in cities,
in apartments high above the ground, with no back yards,


We niust peak up for
Florida's wildlife

As an unprecedented crisis
spews'oil intothe Gulf of
Mexico, oiir ocean, our fish .
and our wildlife suffer imme-
diate and devastating im
pacts.

The good people on the Gulf
coast are fighting for their
very livelihoods because of
the impacts of the oil spill,
but they have strong voices
coming to their aide, and
they are beginning to get
-help.

Florida's fish and wildlife
cannot cry out for help. That
means it is up to us as the
state's fish and wildlife man-
agers to come to their rescue
and speak out for them.

Therefore, I urge BP to take
responsibility for the oiled
wildlife and their degraded
habitats by setting aside
funding now that will sup-
port the long-term survival
of impacted wildlife and re-
store habitat for the long
term.

Florida's fish and wildlife
are incredibly important to
the state and are two of
Florida's main attractions.
Residents and tourists alike
revel in spotting a bottlenose
Dolphin playing in the surf.
Can we even envision a
Florida without ospreys or
pelicans soaring over our
beaches? Our wildlife are a
critical part of our ecosys-
tem, our livelihood and the
unique character of Florida.

Unfortunately, many
of them will die from the im-
pact of the oil. Those that
manage to survive may not
have the healthy habitats
necessary to thrive unless
something is done now for
their long-term survival.

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC), along with
federal and state partners,
threw itself into the protec-
tion of wildlife almost imme-
diately after word of the dis-
aster broke. Our biologists
are actively involved in cre-
ating protocols for damage
.assessment for wildlife. But
funding is limited, and lack
of dollars could very well


translate into alack of fish,
wildlife and habitat in the fu-
ture. .

SWe are doing every-.
thing we can to lessen the.
impacts.- some of these -
steps are risky, but it would',
be far riskier and irrespon.i-
ble of us to.not do everythifig
in our power to protect
species that might be deci-
mated with the onslaught of
oil.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service, the National Marine
Fisheries Service and the
FWC are undertaking an un-
precedented task of moving
sea turtle eggs from the
northern Gulf beaches. Ap-
proximately 700 nests are
laid on the beaches of North-
west Florida each year. The
hatchlings begin appearing
in early July and, in a nor-
mal year, face challenges in
getting to the sea unharmed.
But this year, the additional
challenges created by the
presence of oil pose in-
creased dangers that could
spell certain death for all of.
the hatchlings. We are going:
to move the eggs to the east
coast, and when they hatch,
put the small turtles on the
sand to do their march to the
sea.

Is it risky? You bet. Will it
make a difference? Absolute-
ly At least now we know that
some of 2010's Northwest
Florida sea turtle hatchlings
- all of them threatened or
endangered will have a
fighting chance to survive
the worst oil disaster in'our
nation's history.

We continue to fight
for the welfare of Florida's
precious wildlife that cannot
speak, but we can speak. We
are their voice, and we say
loud and clear, "BP, open
your purse strings and save
our fish and wildlife so our
grandchildren and great
grandchildren will not have
to learn about our wild ani-
mals from textbooks and mu-
seums because they became
the dinosaurs of the 21st
century"

Now is the time to
take extreme measures to
save our precious resources.
Fish and wildlife are critical
to Florida's survival. With-
out the benefits they bring to


and no grass or trees. I know there are people who live in
suburbs in houses that are identical and so close together
that they almost touch.


Sl


I know intellectually that people live like that, I just don't un-
derstand how they live like that. I think I'd go insane..Some-
times I wonder if they have already crossed the sanity
street, and just haven't noticed it yet. I wonder about how
their children grow up, without trees, and grass to wiggle
their toes in, and bugs and frogs to chase. They live so tight-
ly constrained...so squished. It just sees 'wrong to me.

Cindy at the library emailed me the other day and said she
had gotten in new a book that she thought I'd like, called
"The Last Child In The Woods." I went and picked it up and
she was right; I was interested. It's a book abouthow being-
outside, how just being in nature is just good for kids. The
---- lguy took 350 pages to say something that'
f the blue skIes your grandmother could have said in four
oy, Ia blade of words-"Get outside and play," but he made
his point. Too many of our kids come home
up In he fields from school and go straight to their bed-
move you, If e rooms, via the fridge, to a video game,
where they'stay until someone drags them
Nature have a forcibly awayto eat or to go to bed. This is
m understand their life, day after day.


ar soulIs alive. Most kids these days don't spend Saturdays
-Ew Ds outside like we did, building forts and
catching grasshoppers anymore. Kids don't
spend afternoons laying in the grass, find-
ing pictures in the clouds or making up their own games.
They're too busy killing aliens on video screens or being
shuttled by exhausted parents to and from various super-
vised sports fields. If they'do spend a day outside, they're
tearing through the woods on four wheelers or they're rac-
ing at high speed on a jet ski or boogie board. Recess time at
school has been sucked up by FCAT preppingg nd organized
sports. Kids don't have enough time just to be' outside in the
quiet with nothing in particular to do,. to let.their minds just
wander and wonder at ants and doodle-bugs..br to stomp in
puddles.

Is it any wonder that we're raising a generation of surly, dis-
respectful, lazy kids who don't know how to think? After I've
been sitting in front of this screen all day, I'm cranky, stupid
and irritable, too. I can only imagine what if would do to a
young, unformed mind after a few years. Grown-ups need to
get outside, too, probably as much as our. kids do. So excuse
me if I finish up and leave'you here, and spend the rest of
my Fourth of July weekend in the back yard, hanging out
with a few of my feathered friends; because at my house
chicken is soul food even when it's not fried.


our eiejday:liyes; Florida
would not be thespecial
place it is foday It's time to
take responsibility for that
survival, and BP holds the
key.
Sincerely,
Rodney Barreto, Chairman
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission

Homeless woman arrested in
Fanning Springs for stealing,
breaking phone

A homeless woman went
into the Tackle Box in Fan-
ning Springs with a bleeding
head from an apaprent bat-
tery by a boyfriend who
"went to Dixie County,"
took, then broke the phone.

Shannon Evelyn White
claimed that the boyfriend
had broken the phone.
White also allegedly entered

out the door and headed
back to the store," and then
ran into the woods. White
was arrested and charged

mischief, and resisting ar-
rest without violence.


Fourth Grader Inspired to Help
Pelicans in the Gulf


by Donna Myers
I had the pleasure of speaking with Ian
Masson, a precocious 10-year-od from %0 ,a *
Michigan who recently raised money to
help rehabilitate pelicans impacted by -
the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Ian's fa-
ther is a US. Coast Guard reservist
based in District 9 in Cleveland, Ohio,
currently serving as a public affairs spe-
cialist in the Deepwater Horizon response. "I really like ma-
rine life," Ian told me. "When I heard about the pelicans from
my mom, I thought they could.really use some help." But real-
istically, what could a fourth grader do?

Inspired by the Box Tops for Education concept, where "peo-'
ple put box tops in a jar and count them, and the school gets
money," Ian requested permission from his principal to ask
teachers to place jars in their classrooms to collect loose
change. The principal gave him the green light, so Ian set
about creating a poster with pictures of oiled pelicans to
show people what's happening in the Gulf and encouraging
them to put money in the jars. But would they actually do it?

plan's entire school only has about 300 students, but his cam-
paign raised $445. He sent the money to a non-profit organiza-
tion with a history of cleaning and releasing seabirds caught
in oil spills since 1971. Ian's Pennies for Pelicans campaign re-
quested donations tofeed and rehabilitate brown'pelicans,
which can consume up to five pounds of fish each on a daily
"b~i ":during their ~bi6'ry period.'

What's more enduring is plan's newly-gained experience learn-
ing about a seemingly insurmountable problem and finding a
way to contribute to its solution. He learned about the peli-
cans from his mom and wanted to help, like his dad. As a
fourth grader, Ian couldn't follow that particular path, but he
applied the tools and life experience available to him and ulti-
mately found a way to contribute. "I'm proud of the little
guy," his dad told me. And Ian's proud of his dad, too. "I feel
very glad that my dad is helping get the oil out of the Gulf as
soon as possible," lan said. "But I do miss him.... but I'm glad
he's doing it."

Trail RiSers
by Bonnie Wilson

This week I'd like to share
one more of my favorite
places to trail ride and that
is San Felasco. By going
north on Highway 349 to
Highway 340. Turn right on
highway 340 heading east
until you dead-end at the
stop sign at highway 27/41
in High Springs. Turn left to
the traffic light,
highway 27, and
turn right which
will take you
onto highway 441
to Alachua; You'll trav-
el past 1-75 approxi-
mately2.6 miles and go
over an overpass with
railroad tracks below.
The first road on your right
will be Progress Blvd. that
leads you through an Indus-
trial Park onto a non-paved
road to the entrance of San
Felasco Hammock Preserve
State Park. Prairies,
Forests, and Swamps, oh
my!

Now at 7,000 acres with the
newly acquired Fox Pond
site, the San Felasco Ham-
mock Preserve State Park is
one of the finest examples
of the climax mesic ham-
mocks remaining in Flori-
da. The park is located to
the northwest of
Gainesville, in north Flori-
da's Alachua County. The
limestone outcrops and ex-
treme changes in elevation
provide conditions for at
least 18 biological communi-
ties within the hammock,
including areas of sandhill,
hydric hammock, upland
pine, and swamp. Thanks to
the region's karst topogra-
phy, sinkholes, steephead
springs, ponds, and small
lakes dot the landscape.
Blues Creek, Turkey Creek,
and Cellon Creek all enter
San Felasco from outside
the park boundary and flow
through the park, finally
dropping into swallows,
Which drain back into the
aquifer.
San Felasco has two en-
trances: one for hiking and
trail running to the south,
and one for mountain bik-
ing and horse trails to the
north. The southern two-
thirds of the park is desig-
nated for hiking only The
northern most 2,000 acres'
are designated for multi-use
purposes including horse-
back riding, off-road bicy-
cling, and hiking. The
Friends of San Felasco, Inc.

Too drunk to


fish?

Officer Todd Nichols was on
water patrol in the Fanning
Springs area of the Suwan-
nee River. He observed, a
subject that appeared to be
having a difficult time oper-
ating his vessel. Officer
Nichols stopped the vessel
and conducted a safety in-
Sspection. The operator
showed signs of impairment.

Field sobriety tasks were
conducted and the operator
performed poorly. He was ar-
rested for BUI. Breathalyzer
test results were .23 and .24.

and other interested volun-
teers, built trails in this sec-
tion.

My friends and I have en-
countered a few bicycle rid-
ers as our paths cross on
our adventuresome trails
however we have discovered
our horses do not mind
them as long as they can see
them coming. Although our
paths do cross on occasion,
they are definitely on sepa-
rate paths. One of our fa-
vorite.trails is the orange
trail. It winds up through
some of the beautiful
and hilly tree lined
trails that are excep-
tionally wonderful to
climb.. I also love the
ride down to the creek
and through the woods.
It is truly astonishing
and inspiring. The crossing
of the creek is great for the
horses to grab a drink of
water and splash and play
for a moment. Dusty, my
blue-eyed wonder horse,
loved going through water
and whenever someone's
horse refused to cross the
creek, Dusty was more than
happy to lead the way.i
One particular time I clear-
ly remember was a few
years back wheh San Felas-
co was covered in water. My
,friends and I all agreed that
a little water was no prob-
lem. So we all headed out on
the trail. However it became
apparent that there indeed
was more than a little water.
I soon discovered that it was
more like a lake. I was a bit
intimidated by the amount
of water I sa*. Dave, my
husband said; "just keep
looking at the tops of the
fence posts, which was all
that was visible, and do not
look at the water to your
left." Well, to my left was an
ocean, and I do not swim!
Oh boy! Telling me to not
look left was like telling our
child "don't touch that" and
you know every child does,
including me! The water
was now up to Dusty's belly
and rising. Oh dear! Dave
had one of our club mem-
bers daughterg riding with
him on Gus as she did not
have a horse. It was her 8th
birthday and she was hold-
ing tight to Dave. I tried to
keep my eyes focused on the
fence post ahead of me and
continued forward. We did
make it to dryer land and I
was very thankful and so
was little Danielle as she'
had quite a story to tell her
family back at the trailhead.
I guess it wasn't as bad as I
thought but I promised my-
self next time I'd pack a pair
of water wings just to be on
the safe side! The water on
the trails that we encoun-
tered on this ride is not the
norm, but was due to heavy
rains and flooding in the
area.

San Felasco is an extraordi-
narily awesome place to
trail ride and I know you
would enjoy its beauty and
charm if you get an oppor-
tunity to visit. I feel ex-
tremely lucky-to live in
northern Florida and be
able to not only own horses
but to be able to ride in our
remarkable state forest and
state parks in Florida. I am
looking forward to taking
Coby there in the fall. There
is so much to see.right here
in our own backyards. You
just need to be a little adven-
turesome.

If you'd like to join us con-
tact us at

next time, Happy Trails!


011 spill cleanup:
Do you need a respirator?

In situations when expo-
sures cannot be otherwise
controlled, Personal Protec-
tive Equipment (PPE), in-.
cluding respiratory protec-
tion, may be needed.

Based on air
monitoring
data collect-
ed to date,
exposures to
hydrocar-
bons, disper-
sants and
other haz- -
ardous
chemicals
are below es-
tablished occupational expo-
sure limits. In most situa-
tions that have been exam-
ined to date, mandatory
wearing of respirators is
not required..

That said, respirators will
be provided to response
workers engaged in the
source control activities and
for vessels involved in burn-
ing crude oil. These respira-
tors are provided as part of
a comprehensive respirato-
ry protection program. Res-
pirators only need to be
worn when air-monitoring
results indicate an elevated
level of air contaminants,
or when professional judg-
ment determines there is
potential exposure, or when
workers are reporting
health effects or symptoms.

Even when comprehensive
and routine air monitoring
indicates that no inhalation-
al hazard exists, an employ-
er may permit respiratory
protection to be worn volun-
tarily by employees provid-
ed it will not in itself create
a hazard. At this time,
where air monitoring does
not indicate a need, respira-
tor use is voluntary and not
recommended.

The only situation where
voluntary use may be help-
ful is when an individual is
bothered by non-hazardous
levels of hydrocarbon odor
and cannot be relocated to
another work area. In that


I

case, a carbon-impregnated
odor-reduction filtering
facepiece respirator may
provide some odor reduc-
tion potential-and can be
worn voluntarily without
the employer having to im-
ilement a respiratory pro-
tection program. These
types of respirators do not
provide health protective ef-
fects;
they only
provide
odor re-
duction.

Wearing
any respi-
rator will
have ad-
.' verse ef-
fects on
breath-
ing, vision and communica-
tion, will result in some dis-
comfort, and may cause ad-
ditional physiological
stress. Wearing respirators,
protective clothing, and oth-
er forms of PPE in.hot envi-
ronments can accelerate the
onset of heat stress and ex-
haustion. Responders using
any form of PPE, particu-
larly dermal PPE, should be
monitored for signs of heat
stress, and take heat stress
precautions (i.e, water,
shade, rest) as needed.

When workers have con-
cerns'about environmental
conditions, they are in-
structed to stop the job and
call an occupational safety
and health professional to
evaluate the environment. If
the occupational safety and
health professional deter-
mines that there is a poten-
tially hazardous exposure
or if workers are reporting
health effects or symptoms,
workers are instructed to
move out of the area until
the workplace is judged to
be acceptable, or they may
be instructed to utilize ap-
proved respiratory protec-
tion.

Surviving a Florida
summer requires a dip
In the springs

Florida's Paleo-Indians be-
lieved sacred water filled
the springs and the magical
waters held the cure to all
human ills. The Timucuans
roamed the shores of the
spring-fed rivers of North
Florida and settled there for
the life-sustaining food and
'water the springs provided.
Spanish explorers thought
they had discovered the
elixir for perpetual youth
when they stumbled upon
the crystal clear gems while
exploring Florida. In the re-
cent past, the springs have
served as the backdrop for
baptisms, weddings, vaca-
tion get-aways and re-
unions. Today, many of
them are state parks and re-
main intertwined with our
lives.

But even before the Timu-
cuans roamed North Flori-
da, wildlife depended upon
the springs. Gar, bowfin and
sturgeon ancient living
fossils still inhabit the wa-
ters of the springs and riv-
er runs. The.springs envi-
ronment hosts species found
nowhere else in the world.
Blind cave crayfish, blind
cave shrimps and other spe-
cialized cave- dwelling crus-
taceans arehighly depen-
dent on the system. Fish,
such as American eels and
catfish, take refuge in un-
derwater caves, and striped
bass seek out cooler waters
of springs to escape the heat
of summer river waters in
Florida. The visible wildlife
using spring systems from
-great blue herons to deer -
depend upon the ecosys-
tem's delicate balance of all
creatures living there.

The vegetation, the consis-
tent temperature, the chemi-
cal makeup of the water
and abundant sunshine pro-
vide sanctuary to one of the
most biologically diverse
and productive ecosystems
in the world. To prevent the
springs from disappearing
as did the Timucuans, we
need to conserve them be-
cause according to experts,
our springs are in trouble.

On top of it all, some predic-
tive models show that cli-
mate change means less
rain for Florida, despite an
increase in the intensity of
storms.

"Less rainfall will have a di-
rect impact on already-
stressed springs by reducing
average annual flow," said
Kent Smith, a Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) biolo-
gist who was the agency's
representative to the gover-
nor's springs task force and
continues to work on' the in-
teragency committee that is
implementing that group's
work. "The drier climate
will affect the recharge of
the springs, reducing the
flow and increasing the con-
centration of nitrates be-
cause of a reduction in dis-
charge volume."


Jim Stevenson, a retired
chief biologist with Flori-
da's Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection and
now coordinating the
Wakulla and Ichetucknee
Springs Basin Working
Groups, sees the current sit-
uation with the springs as a
two-fold problem.

"There are two major things
that impact the health of
the springs: the quantity of
spring flow and quality of
the water," he said. "The
U.S. Geological Survey has
said that the Ichetucknee's
flow is down 15 percent.
Hornsby Springs on the
Santa Fe River is a first
magnitude spring, and there
are times it doesn't flow."

And then there's Fanning
Springs on the Suwannee
River near Chiefland, which
Stevenson calls the "poster
child for spring degrada-
tion."

"Fanning Springs may not
even be a first magnitude
spring anymore," Stevenson
said.

"Human activities have led
to an increase in nitrates in
the springs and watershed
areas," Smith said. "Those
activities include maintain-
ing the perfect lawn and
gardens in our own yards."

If we live in a spring
recharge area, we play a
part in the health of the
springs and ultimately the
water we drink from the
Floridan aquifer.

"We've been sloppy house-
keepers of the springs,
messing them up with fertil-
izer and endless irrigation,"
Stevenson said. "Individuals
must stop treating water as
if it's free and limitless."

This is the perfect time to
do all we can to take respon-
sibility for our springs and
-give them the perpetireite
Ponce de Leoh thought he
had discovered. We can start
by looking at our lawns and
gardens and become better
housekeepers for the water,
for our wildlife and ulti-
mately for ourselves.

The Suwannee River Water
Management District pro-
vides nine tips to creating a
Florida yard that will lessen
our water usage anrd elimi-
nate the need for pesticides
on our grass, plants and
shrubs. Go to
http://www.swfwmd.state.fl.
us/yards/ to find out about
planting the right plants in
the right place, using mulch
and much, much more. An-
other great site on smart
landscaping can be found at
FloridaYards.org.

So instead of watering your
lawn and pesticides to your
plants, go dive into one of
the many springs still flow-
ing and enjoy the best thing
about a Florida summer. Be
sure to marvel at the abun-
dant wildlife in our midst,
just as the Native Ameri-
cans once did.

From REPUBLICANS, page 1

Candidate Ron McNeil showed up late, but took his time speak-
ing, and working the room like an evangelical preacher. "I don't
need a teleprompter or to take a poll to see what I believe," he
told the crowd. Very tall, with a Johnny Cash-like bass voice, he
said that "We've got to limit the scope of government." He
stressed his business experience, and said that "I think we're
gonna send them a surprise in November."

Ms. Carolyn Land spoke for the absent Steve Southerland, and
said that she "is a converted Republican" driven away from the
Democrat party by the health care bill. She said that she would-
n't answer questions for Mr. Southerland, that he "would proba-
bly have a stroke if he knew I was up here against these guys,"
and referred interested people to Mr. Sutherland campaign web-
site and literature.

The first question came from Adolphus Currie, who asked
Scholl where he was from. Mr. Scholl replied that he was from
Niceville, and that he had a wife and kids, "and a three-legged
dog. who lost a fight with a truck."

An audience member asked, "How are you going to move Alan
Boyd out?" Candidate McNeil replied that he felt that any one
of the candidates could defeat Boyd at this point, and that "You
can't believe the hostility to what he's done. I've never seen so
much hostility against a candidate in my life."

Candidate Hendry replied that "Tallahassee is like Oz," but that
"Outside of Tallahassee, people are going to vote against Alan
Boyd, and even Lawson." He continued that "Alan Boyd has in-
creased his net worth by one pnillion dollars every year he's
been up there." Scholl said that "Alan Boyd's typical modus
operandi--just before the election--he brings home the bacon"
isn't going to work this year with tight budgets, and that "The
conservative base is fired up." He continued that "Alan Boyd al-
ways says that he's a blue dog democrat. Well, that dog don't
hunt."

A question Was asked about the oil'spill, and Scholl said, "We
know this President is not about saving our beaches. This is all
about Obama pushing his renewable energy agenda." McNeil
agreed, "What we gotta do is shut the oil off. The Navy should
have exploded something--a small nuclear bomb--or some-
thing." Hendry said.that we should just "plug the dadblanged
hole and hold BP or Transocean or whoever responsible. 30 per-
cent of our domestic oil comes out of the Gulf. You can't just
shut that down."

The new controversial immigration law in Arizona was brought
up and McNeil said "I'm for it. They're coming across there
like rabbits across a briar patch. I don't blame them (Arizona)
for what they're doing." Hendry said "Get the fence up. Secure
the border. Illegal immigration is an invasion and I'm for
putting troops on our border. We're not a nation of immigrants,
we're a nation of laws." Scholl said, "This is a big issue. This is
national security. Known terrorists tie in with drug gafigs in
Mexico City and are coming across the border. Obama wants to
give these people amnesty to increase his voter base."

After short closing statements, and some fellowship fueled by'
punch and cake, the meeting adjourned.

There are ten candidates for the District Two seat: Democrats
SAlan Boyd and Al Lawson; Republicans Eddie Hendry, Ron
McNeil, Barbara Olschner, David Scholl, and Steve Souther-
land; Independents Paul McKain and Diane Berryhill, and write-
in candidate Ray Netherwood. The primary will be held August
24, 2010.

From CRISIS, pg 1

Buddy Lamb, Suwannee Wa-
ter and Sewer Manager, re-
ported that he's working to
avoid a potential crisis by
being prepared for the in-
flux of visitors to Suwannee
over Independence Day
Weekend. "We'll have four
times the water usage down
there," he said. He thanked
the Commission for the
work that's been done clean-
ing up Suwannee, and told
Tim Alexander that "We're
working to identify all the
full-time residents down
there in case of some kind
of impending need for that.
We're trying to be prepared
and proactive." He reported
that new light poles are go-
ing in and that they'll pro-
vide Suwannee more protec-
tion from high winds,
storms, and lightning.

Kay McCallister appeared to
present the language for the
ballot so that Dixie resi-
dents can voice an opinion
on a potential tourism tax.
The tax would place a 2%
fee on all rent paid "for
overnight accommodations at
hotels, motels, rv/camp-
grounds and similar tourist
accommodations" rented for
less than six months. The
money raised "will be used
to promote tourism within
Dixie County and to en-
hance the unique quality of
our county's recreational fa-
cilities." All of the meeting
minutes for the Tourist De-
velopment Council can be
viewed at dixiecountytdc.org.

McCallister said that al-
though BP had provided 25


NOAA Expands Fishing
Closed Area in Gulf of
Mexico

NOAA has expanded the
closed fishing area in the
Gulf of Mexico to include
portions of the oil slick mov-
ing beyond the area's current
northwestern boundary, off
the Louisiana federal-state
waterline. This boundary
was moved westward off Ver-
milion Bay.

This federal closure
does not apply to any state
waters. Closing fishing in
these areas is a precaution-
ary measure to ensure that
seafood from the Gulf. will
remain safe for consumers.

The closed area now repre-
sents 81,181 square miles,
which is approximately 33.5
percent of Gulf of Mexico
federal waters. This leaves
more than 66 percent of Gulf
federal waters available'for
fishing. The closure will be
effective at 6:00 p.m. EDT. De-
tails can be found at
http://sero.nmfs.noaa.gov/.
The last closed area modifi-
cation was June 28, when
80,228 square miles were
closed to fishing, or roughly
33.2 percent of federal waters
of the Gulf.

The federal and state govern-
ments have systems in place
to test and monitor seafood
safety, prohibit harvesting
from affected areas, and keep


million dollars to advertise
and promote Florida
tourism via "Visit Flori-
da,"but that the money is al-
ready all gone and that Dix-
ie wouldn't get any Tim
Alexander said that perhaps
money could be obtained for
advertising Dixie County
tourism and then costs
could be billed to BE Chair-
man Hunt agreed, saying "If
you don't ask, you're not
gonna get it."

A representative from the
Early Learning Coalition
appeared to ask for $4,000 in
County funding for the pro-
gram that provides day care
for local at-risk children.
ELC provides care for 66 lo-
cal children, and pays
providers around $210 per
month per child to provide
them an "educational oppor-
tunity before kindergarten."

Rita Harris, of Harris Ad-
ministrative Services ap-
peared to get approval on
multiple measures in order
to attempt to obtain CBDG
grant funding for the Coun-
ty She said that one poten-
tial problem could be that
Dixie County is not "at equi-
ty" with it's hiring prac-
tices, and doesn't maintain
the required 11.3% of mi-
norities in the county's
workforce. She asked the
Commissioners to keep that
in mind, "the next time you
hire somebody." The rules
have recently changed, and
hispanics are no longer.

Commissioner Higginboth-
am asked, "Don't women

Harris replied, "No."


oiled products out of the
marketplace. NOAA contin-
ues to work closely with the
U.S. Food and Drug Adminis-
tration and the states to en-
sure seafood safety, by clos-
ing fishing areas where taint-
ed seafood could potentially
be caught, and assessing
whether seafood is tainted or
contaminated to levels that
pose a risk to human health.
SNOAA and FDA are working
to implement a broad-scaled.
seafood sampling plan. The
plan includes sampling
seafood from inside and out-
side the closure area, as well
as dockside- and market-
based sampling.

According to NOAA, there
are approximately 5.7 million
recreational fishermen in the
Gulf of Mexico region who
took 25 million fishing trips
in 2008. Commercial fisher-
men in the Gulf harvested
more than one billion pounds
of fish and shellfish in 2008.

Fishermen who wish to con-
tact BP about a claim should
call 800-440-0858.

NOAA will continue to evalu-
ate the need for fisheries clo-
sures based on the evolving
nature of the spill and will
re-open closed areas as ap-
propriate. NOAA will also re-
evaluate the closure areas as
new information that would
change the boundaries of
these closed areas becomes
available.

Teen Sacrifices College
Fund to Help save Florida
Wildlife from Oil

by Gina Presson
SOUTH WALTON BEACH,
Fla. A 14-year-old Ohio girl
is sacrificing her college
fund to help save wildlife in-
jured by the Deepwater
Horizon spill, and she's en-
couraging other teens to fol-
low her example. Chelsea
Saxman has dreams of sav-
ing money for college by
selling frozen treats called
snowballs, but she is now
putting that effort into help-
ing save Florida wildlife.
Chelsea held a fundraiser in
her hometown of Defiance,
Ohio last weekend, raising
$300, which she's donating
to the Florida Wildlife Fed-
eration. This weekend she's
bringing her snowball oper-
ation to South Walton Beach
where her family has vaca-
tioned for years.
Chelsea says she decided to
raise money to help after
seeing injured wildlife on
TV
"One of the clips came up of
birds that were like soaked
in the oil, and I just felt so
bad because I love animals
and I mean there's plenty of
other chances to get money
for college, but this is like a
one time thing, got to do it
now."
Bonnie McQuiston is on the
Florida Wildlife Federation
board. This weekend, she'll
be accepting the donation
from Chelsea, who contact-
ed the group via e-mail.

ture over sugar. With wire

bined. Set aside until ready
to use.


"They want to contribute
something. They just want
to help. As she said in that
email, 'we want to be part of
the solution not the prob-
lem.""
Chelsea's mother, Lori Sax-
man, says they're spending
two weeks in Florida, as
usual, this summer, but this
year, it's to help give back to
the community she calls
their second home, now suf-
fering from the oil spill.
"We just felt like it would be
selfish to cancel our vaca-
tion, and shut our doors,
and our wallets and our
hearts to the people down
there who have been so won-
derful to us over the last 12
years."

Chelsea's family will be
spending their July 4th at
Ed Walline Park serving
snowballs in support of sav-
ing wildlife. She hopes to
serve as an example for
more teens to get involved
in beach clean-up, raising
money to treat wildlife, and
respecting the environment.

And the

Winner is....

Mr. Eric Olsen of Jack-
sonville, FL is the proud
owner of the Club Car Elite
golf cart raffled by the Stein-
hatchee River Chamber of
Commerce on Sun night just
*before the fireworks show.
Thank you to Big Bend Ma-
rine of Perry, FL who provid-
ed the cart and tickets and to
everyone who purchased one
or many tickets.
The proceeds from the raffle
funded the spectacular fire-
works show that seems to get
better every year. The win-
ning ticket was sold by Fid-
dler's Restaurant in Stein-
hatchee who seasoned the
prize with a steak dinner as
well. A note of thanks goes
to all hard working chamber
members who sold the tick-
ets.
The 4th of July is always a
great time in Steinhatchee
and this year was no differ-
ent. Scallopers were filling
their buckets between rain
drops, but the weather
cleared just in time for the
festivities. The evening
opened with a flawless acap-

BRONSON EXTENDS
APALACHICOLA BAY OYSTER
HARVESTING LICENSE
APPLICATION PERIOD
TALLAHASSEE -- Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Services. Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson today
announced the extension of
the licensing period for the
Apalachicola Bay Oyster
Harvesting License. This li-
cense (in addition to the
Saltwater Products License)
is required to commercially
harvest oysters from the
Apalachicola Bay System.
This action is being taken
as a result of the BP Deep-
water Horizon oil spill
event, which is causing se-
vere economic hardship and
uncertainty for the oyster


industry. Under normal cir-
cumstances, licenses for the
fiscal year that begins July
1 have to be obtained be-
tween May 17 and June 30,
or applicants face a $500 late
fee. Today's action extends
this year's licensing period
through August 31, 2010,
meaning that no late fee
will be imposed until after
that date.
"I am pleased to support the
hard-working people in
Florida's oyster industry
during these uncertain
times," Bronson said. "I
know that for those oyster-
men who have not yet re-
newed their licenses, the
late fee would have been a
major burden for them, es-
pecially this year with the
turmoil caused by the oil
spill out in the Gulf."


Suwannee Baptist Gives Out Water

During the Fourth of July and fireworks celebration in
Suwannee, the Suwannee Baptist Church gave away free
water to any one who was thirsty. Each bottle was labeled
with the Church's name and the phrase "Fishers of Men."
Suwannee Baptist Church is located on Highway 349 in the
town of Suwannee where the "Highway meets the Gulf."

"Many visitors came to Suwannee to celebrate with us. We
wanted to help make their visit fun while providing our-
selves with a form of outreach." said Brother Fred Ed-
wards the Pastor.
In the photograph, Brother Fred is shown with church
member Fred Kqberlein ready, to hand out the water. Pas-
tor Fred is holding one of the world's most perfect grand--
children. If you have a free couple of hours, ask him about
her.

A very special thanks goes to
Larry & Paula Fritcher, who
have been involved in the
fireworks show for many
years, along with Ed Wessels,
Dick Jackson (another long
time helper), Joshua Cook
and Joshua Carnes. The
spectacular display lit up the
night sky over the river for
about 45 minutes and could
be seen for miles.
Another thank you goes to
Teresa & Ralph Grubbs,
Vondla Sullivan and Meg
Fleming who tirelessly
scooped up ice cream to cool
off visitors all night and
everyone else who has helped
in any way to make this cele-
bration a wonderful event.

car show enthusiasts that should create considerable excite-
ment. We will start things off with a parade through the
town of Cross City and returning to the airport. The total pa-
rade route is a little over 5 miles. Following the parade par-
ticipants will vote on those vehicles within their class or
division that most exemplifies the characteristic most sought
after. Trophies will be presented to those participants with
the most votes in their respective class. The registration fee
will be $15.00 per vehicle. Commercial and governmental
sponsors may enter an entire fleet for $100 and a best in fleet
may be selected. We believe this is an -excellent way to build
employee pride and advertise your business. This is kind of
an invitation to strut your stuff, show civic pride, and in-
crease your business. All proceeds received will be applied
first to the cost of the production of this event, and second to
the philanthropic budget of the Dixie County Rotary Club.
Every cent in our philanthropic budget is spent solely for the
benefit of our community.

Antique Cars Classes: Original Stock Models ,Modified Mod-
els ;Sports Cars Classes: Corvettes, Imports

FIRST BAPTIST OF
STEINHATCHEE NEWS
Words for us to remember
July 4, 1776
When in the Course of human
events it becomes necessary for
one people to dissolve the politi-
cal bands which have connected
them with another and to as-
sume among the powers of the
earth, the separate and'equal
station to which the Laws of
Nature and of Nature's God en-
title them, a decent respect to
the opinions of mankind re-
quires that they should declare
the causes which impel them to
the separation. We hold these
truths to be self-evident, that all
men are created equal, that they
are endowed by their Creator
with certain unalienable Rights,
that among these are Life, Lib-
erty and the pursuit of Happi-
ness. That to secure these
rights, Governments are insti-
tuted among Men, deriving
their just powers from the con-
sent of the governed, That
whenever any Form of Govern-
ment becomes destructive of
these ends, it is the Right of the.
People to alter or to abolish it.
December 15, 1791
First Amendment Establish-
ment Clause, Free Exercise

in a manner to be prescribed by
law.


Fourth Amendment" Protec-
tion from unreasonable search
and seizure. The right of the
people to be secure in their per-
sons, houses, papers, and ef-
fects, against unreasonable

shall issue, but upon probable
cause, supported by Oath or af-
firmation, and particularly de-
scribing the place to be
searched, and the persons or
things to be seized.
Fifth Amendment due process,


double jeopardy, self-incrimina-
tion, eminent domain. No per-
son shall be held to answer for
any capital, or otherwise infa-
mous crime, unless on a pre-
sentment or indictment of a
Grand'Jury, except in cases aris-
ing in the land or naval forces,
or in the Militia, when in actual
service in time of War or public
danger; nor shall any person be
subject for the same offense to
be twice put in jeopardy of life
or limb; nor shall be compelled
in any criminal case to be a'wit-
ness against himself, nor be de-
prived of life, liberty, or proper-
ty, without due process of law;
nor shall private property be
taken for public use, without
just compensation.
Sixth Amendment Trial by

sel In all criminal prosecutions,

CALVARY TEMPLE ASSEMBLY


Have you visited Calvary,
lately? Sunday morning
worship begins @ 10:30, no
Sunday evening service &
7:00 on Wednesday. Calvary
just completed six months
of Wednesday evening
prayer that was both chal-
lenging and fruitful. We are
fully expecting true revival
to be birthed by our Lord.
We will know when it ar-
rives.

I remember back when I
was first saved (April
12,1978) I had so many ques-
tions, many of which no-
body seemed to want to an-
swer. For the next few weeks
our Wednesday evening ser-
vice will be along this line; I
have asked our congrega-
tion to write down "any"
question that they might
have and give to me (pastor).
It can be about anything of
concern that has to do with
a biblical issue; salvation,
tongues, gifts, money, faith,
love, sex, church, prayer,

worship, heaven, hell, an-
gels, miracles, etc...... Any-
thing! No holds barred!!!

If it concerns those whom I
serve then it concerns me.
My, 0 my, what excellent
questions have come forth.
Our Wednesday evening ser-
vice will be dedicated to pro-
viding scriptural answers
(to the best of our ability).
Does this interest you?

If you "are not" a Christian
but you have questions, the
door is open, come on in. I
will do my best with God's
help to provide you with a
biblical answer, not a re-
hearsed religious answer.
Write out your question,
drop in the offering basket
and in time we will attempt
to answer.

July 25th with SOUTH-

us! Please pick up one of

Update on Improvements to


Vessels of Opportunity Program



Today Doug Suttles, Chief Operating Officer of BP Explo-
ration and Production, met with Vessels of Opportunity
(VoO) participants to view operations and discuss a num-
ber of enhancements made to the VoO program. Through
these modifications, the program will more effectively de-
ploy boats to oil recovery activity and better utilize local
commercial and charter fishing vessels to advance the ef-
fectiveness of the Gulf of Mexico response.

"The enhancements announced today will further strength-
en the Vessels of Opportunity program, getting the right
vessels into the fight in the fairest way possible." said Sut-
ties. "We've listened carefully to those working on this im-
portant effort, and we appreciate the changes they've rec-
ommended. This program is an important piece of our ef-
forts to make things right in the Gulf of Mexico. The hard
work of those within the program continues to make a sig-
nificant contribution to the response."

The operational characteristics developed by the U.S. Coast
Guard and BP represent existing best practices and im-
provements suggested by program participants. Enhance-
ments include:

Leveraging the local Branch offices, with boats within
each Branch organized into response Task Forces and
Strike Teams to meet key operational demands. The Task
Forces report into the Branch operations, improving how
we better bring resources into the response.

* Improved air surveillance through the use of Tyndall Air
Force Base.

* Increased vessel rotation frequency, subject to opera-
tional needs.

* Increased focus on local, in-state vessel sourcing.

* Focused on commercial and charter fishing vessel use
with the goal of better oil recovery; recreational craft will
be used only when no suitable local commercial vessels are
available.

* Clarifying the operation pool size to ensure it is appropri-
ate and includes the right type of vessels.

The Vessels of Opportunity program employs local com-
mercial fishing vessels to assist in the company's response
in the Gulf of Mexico and minimize the impact of the spill
on the region's people, environment and economy To date,
over 3,000 vessels have been activated for duty through the
program across four states Louisiana, Alabama, Missis-
sippi and Florida.

Family First Winners


During the month of June, the Dixie
County Tax Collector's Office and the Dri-
ver's License Office participated in a state-
wide fund raiser for Family First. This orga-
nization promotes family values and family
strenghting programs. Each customer that
made a donation to Family First was entered
irto a drawing for a football autographed by


Tony Dungy former NFL coach and
spokesman for Family First. Winner of the
Tax Collector's Office drawing was Wanda
Berry. Winner of the Driver's License Office
drawing was Chuck Lee (see attached pic-'
tures). We would like to thank all those who
donated to this worthy cause and made this
fund raiser a success.
