Former Cross City Police Chief,
City Councilman
Sentenced to 27 months

On August 26, 2010, former
Cross City Commissioner
Marcellus Dawson, 74, will
report to federal prison to'
begin serving a 27-month
sentence for solicitation and
receipt of bribes and con-
spiracy to commit that of-
fense. Dawson was convict-
ed of following a five-day
jury trial in federal district
court in Gainesville earlier
this year.

Dawson, the former police
chief of Cross City, was
videotaped accepting $500
from the undercover agent
between October and
December 2007. While ac-
cepting the money, Dawson
agreed to do anything to
help the developer includ-
ing working to ensure city
water would be made avail-
able for any new develop-
ment, re-zoning property as
necessary, and convincing
other city officials to sup-
port the developer's plans.
Chief United States District
Court Judge Stephan P.
Mickle announced the sen-
tence yesterday at the
conclusion of Dawson's sen-
tencing hearing in
Gainesville.

In addition to the prison
sentence, Dawson will have
to serve 24 months of super-
vised release following his
release from custody. Daw-
son was beginning his fifth
term as a city commissioner
when he was arrested. His
seat was filled by retired
City Councilman Herbert
Hurst, who agreed to take
the post for free.

On Thursday July 8, 2010,
while working a traffic detail
just north of Cross City, a
deputy stopped a Dodge
Neon driven by David Britt
for traveling 87mph in a
65mph speed zone. During
the subsequent stop, the
deputy realized the driver's
story did not make sense as
to his travels. Further inves-
tigation raised the suspicions
of the deputy and he re-
ceived consent to search the
vehicle. Once additional units
arrived for back-up, the deputy
asked the passengers to exit
the vehicle while the search
was conducted. As one of the
passengers, Timothy Archer,
was exiting the vehicle, he
was seen attempting to con-
ceal something under the seat.
He then attempted to press
something into the dirt as he
stood outside the vehicle.
These items were then re-
trieved and Archer was placed
into a patrol unit while the
search continued.


Timothy Archer Kelly Sadler


During the search, officers dis-
covered various narcotics and
paraphernalia. These items in-
cluded: Morphine, MDMA
(Ecstacy), Hydrocodone, Di-
azepam, Marijuana, Metham-
phetamine, Phentermin Hy-
drochloride and various items
of drug paraphernalia.

As a result of these discover-
ies, Timothy Archer, 31 years
of age from Perry, was arrest-
ed for Possession of Mehtam-
phetamine, Possession of Con-
trolled Substance (Ecstasy),


Possession ofHydrocodone,
Possession of Morphine Sul-
fate, Possession of Drug
Equipment, Manufacturing
Methamphetamine, Possession
of Less than 20grm Marijuana
and Possession of Diazepam.
Kelly Sadler, 31 years of age
from Perry, was arrested for
Possession of a Controlled
Substance, Possession of Drug
Equipment and Possession of
Marijuana. Both Archer and
Sadler were transported to the
Dixie County Jail.


Got milk?


Young library patrons were
treated to a visit with
Farmer McPeepers and his
missing milk cows on
Wednesday morning at the
Cross City Library.

The summer library season
will wrap up on July 14th
with Indians and Wildlife
with Ranger Pam and


Rockin with Rooks on July
the 21st. Young farmers
were presented with T-shirts
to take home, sponsored by
Drummond Community
Bank. The Tuesday morning
cooking class at the library
remains highly popular--
particularly with the young
gentlemen--and has two
weeks left.


School Board votes to put

Superintendent job on the Nov. ballot
Superintendent of Schools could be appointed for
one or two-year terms Instead of elected


Monday evening's School
Board meeting was packed
with determined citizens
who have been gathering
signatures in support of
making the Superintendent
of Schools position more ac-
countable to the School
Board. The group, all promi-
nent men from the commu-
nity, took up the last three
rows of seats as they asked
the School Board to consid-
er appointing the Superin-
tendent's position for one or
two year contracts, subject
to the approval of the
Board,

According to one of the
members of the group, who
spoke on the condition of
anonymity, the group is not
against the current Superin-
tendent at all, but is focused
on forming a "more cohe-
sive government,"-and plac-
ing a layer of accountability
on the "almost absolute
power" of the Superinten-
dent's position. He said that
too many staff changes
seemed to have the appear-
ance of nepotism, and that


the goal of the group is to
place limits on the ability of
the Superintendent to
"shove stuff down the
throats of the School
Board." Adding more ac-
countability to the School
Board would force the Su-
perintendent to "answer to
someone other than people
he or she has made promis-
es to."

The proposal was brought
up a few weeks ago by
Board Member Glen Osteen,
and then dropped. The pro-
motion citizen said that the
idea to change to an ap-
pointed position was
"brushed under the rug" but
that "we shook their cage
enough that they brought it
up in an open forum." The
proposal was approved on a
3-2'vote, With Cheryl Prid-
geon and Top Rollison vot-
ing for the measure, and
Glenn Osteen and David
Keen voting against. Tim
Alexander broke the tie by
voting to place the issue into
the voter's hands on the No-
vember ballot.


Boyd visits Dixie:

Discussions highlight frstrafions, challenges

local officials are having with BP


On Thursday, Allen Boyd
brought Dixie County offi-
cials together with repre-
sentatives from BP to have
frank discussions about the
county's ongoing needs and
challenges and how BP can
better support local preven-
tion and containment ef-
forts.

During the two meetings -
one held in Horseshoe
Beach and the other in
Suwannee local officials
expressed their. discontent-
ment with the pace and
manner with which BP is
responding to the needs of
the community, such as de-
lays in processing claims
and hiring locals to assist in
the ongoing clean-up ef-
forts. Dixie County Com-
missioners Gene Higgin-
botham, Mark Hatch and
Ronnie Edmonds participat-
ed in today's meetings, as
did Tim Alexander, Emer-
gency Management Direc-
tor for Dixie County, Horse-
shoe Beach Mayor Martha
McBurnette and Horseshoe
Beach Council Members
Tina Brotherton and
Frances Cherry.

Congressman Boyd ex-
pressed similar frustrations
and remarked, "Without
question, BP and the Ad-
ministration's response ef-
forts have been far too slow.
Our local officials and resi-
dents have a vested interest
in doing everything possi-
ble to protect their land and
their livelihoods from the
threat posed by BP's oil, and
I believe that if BP shared
this same urgency, their re-
sponse efforts to date would
be far different than what
we've witnessed.*

Following the meetings,
Congressman Boyd added, .
"BP needs to be a more ac-
tive partner in developing
solutions and assisting our
counties. Thanks to the ef-
forts of the local officials
that attended today's meet-
ings, the discussions re-
vealed several ways BP can
do just that. Moving for-
ward, I will continue work-
ing to hold BP accountable
for the commitments they
made to our community to-
day."


Last week, Congressman
Boyd introduced two pieces
of legislation that will help
speed economic relief to the
countless residents, proper-
ty owners, small businesses
and taxpayers that have
been economically impact-
ed as a result of the BP oil
crisis. The first bill would
remove the tax liability
from BP claim checks, en-
suring that victims of the
BP oil spill receive the full
amount of damages without
having to set aside an
amount for their next tax
return. The second bill
'would provide tax relief
and tax incentives to those
seeking economic develop-
ment opportunities in select
North Florida areas.

Last month, Congressman
Boyd brought together rep-
resentatives from federal
and state emergency re-
sponse agencies and key lo-
cal stakeholders to discuss
the effect a hurricane would
have on the oil currently in
the Gulf of Mexico and the
impact it would have on
North Florida's communi-
ties. The conference identi-
fied actions that need to be
incorporated into current
hurricane response plans in
order to efficiently and ef-
fectively protect our com-
munities and people from
the threat posed by having
oil propelled inland.

He also sent a letter to the
President calling for the es-
tablishment of a Gulf
seafood safety task force to
counter the growing public
perception that seafood har-
vested in Gulf waters is not
safe to eat.

. In May, Congressman Boyd
sponsored legislation that
would hold oil companies
fully accountable for the
economic damage caused by
oil spills. Oil companies are
already responsible for the
full cost of environmental
clean-up efforts. Boyd's leg-
islation would raise the cur-
rent cap from $75 million to
$10 billion, ensuring that oil
companies and not the
taxpayers bear the cost for
all economic damages re-
sulting from oil spills.

NASA's new objectives

I somehow doubt that this was the brain-child of anyone
who is actually involved in the space program or knows
much of anything about it, but according to President Oba-
ma, NASA has a totally new set of objectives--in fact, a
brand new reason for existing.

NASA head-honcho Charles Bolden recently stated in an in-
terview with Al-Jeezera that President Obama had speci-
fied three new priorities for our space program: help get
children interested in math and science, expand interna-
tional relationships, and (most important of all) find a way
to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more
with predominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good
about their historic contribution to science, math and engi-
neering.

I~ino'xocket scientist, but.I don't find much in thatset of :
priorities that would interest anyone who was. S~i:egetting
more kids interested in math and science (item 1) would be
great. We've been saying that for years, and meanwhile
we've been offering them credit courses in basket-weaving
and studies of alternate lifestyles. Sure, the kids can.still
study math and science if they really want to, but when you
can get a college degree for an objective analysis of belly-
button lint, not too many teen-agers are going to pursue cal-
culus or nuclear physics.

As it turns out, in Obama-speak, expanding international
relationships (item 2) is a broad category which encompass-
es reaching out to Muslims (item 3). Obama also wants to
include sub-Saharan Africa, not exactly a citadel of culture,
but home to several Muslim countries. Also included, Rus-
sia and Communists China, neither of which are what you
could call supportive of America's status as a world power.
The Russians actually stepped out in front in the space pro-
gram with "Sputnik" in 1957, though it didn't take us long
to catch up. China hasn't been that active in outer space,
other than to develop--and brag about--ICBM's that could
reach our west coast. We've engaged in a few cooperative
projects with the Russians, but we actually don't need to be
helping anybody in their quest to get out in front in the
space race. We were the first to land on the moon (July 2,
1969), and we might get there again someday if we can get
some leadership with the right priorities. Unfortunately,
the Obama administration is undercutting our entire space
program by eliminating and/or postponing important pro-
jects and inviting friend and foe alike to share in the tech-
nology that enables us to retain an advantage that protects
us from aggressive foreign powers and two-bit tinpot dicta-
torships that don't like us.

The principal problem with Obama's objectives is, of
course, the accommodation of Islamic governments, the
majority of which are at best fair-weather friends (such as
Saudi Arabia) which we protect from their more militant Is-
lamic neighbors. And it is these militant Islamic states
(such as Iran) that would just love to share in our space-age
technology, the better to threaten Europe and eventually the
Western Hemisphere with ICBM's carrying the nuclear
weapons that American liberals don't want to believe they
are developing.

These are governments and philosophies that want to see
the United States marginalized if not totally destroyed. Do
we really need to be helping them to feel better about them-
selves? Is lack of self-esteem really their problem?

I can remember John F Kennedy telling us that we'd have a
man on the moon in ten years. He didn't live to see it hap-
pen, but we made it. The space program has been a source
of pride and a shining example of American leadership for
decades. It's rather sad to see it all end.


Pay attention, this is important...ooh, look a butterfly!


by Kathy McKinney

an you give yourself Attention Deficit Dis-
rder? Can ADHD be self-imflicted? I've been
wondering this on and off lately. I've noticed
at as much as I love to read, Ijust can't
seem to sit and read for hours anymore...my
mind races around like a spoiled toddler at
Grandmas stuffing down unlimited Pixie Sticks with Moun-
tain Dew chasers. I'll be sitting there, with a great book, and
I'll catch myself wondering if I have any new work email I
need to deal with, or if anything interesting is happening on
Facebook, or if there's a breaking economic news story over
at Zero Hedge blog I've missed.

It seems as if the more I use the internet for work and for
reading...the less I'm able to use other, more traditional
things. I feel like I'm losing my ability to sit
still and just read or think. Our Invenutio

I posted the question on Facebook (of course) Pr
and Les Hall replied "Welcome to middle distrat our
age," Well, maybe, Les, but I don't think that's SWOUS M
what it is. Sure, I find myself starting to do
that "hold it at arms length to read fine print" but Improve
thing, but it's not my impending descent into
geezerismthat distracts me from my book His U
Excellency, George Washington. It's the nag-
ging insistence that something could be going
on somewhere in cyberspace that I don't know
about. By logging off and disconnecting, I'm
missing out, getting behind, becoming irrelevant. I actually
get a little anxious when I'm unplugged. How scary is that?

I'm an adult person with a fairly developed--well, as
developed as it's gonna get--mind. If spending hours and
hours in front of a computer screen is starting to make me
go squirrelly, how is it affecting our kids? What happens to
the brains of teenagers weaned on Facebook, who cut their
teeth on Twitter and who start to go into DT's if their cell
phone is more than six feet from their hands?

Let's look at a typical, well-behaved, good student teen like
my niece Rebecca, who like all her friends, can text with one
hand tied behind her back, who can't sit down and watch a
movie without her laptop open and on standby, and who
can't do homework without a chat window open and music
blaring through her headphones. "Because like, OMG, I
can't think without music, like, OK? I need it on, she'd say
before she'd roll her eyes at my uncool so-last-decade.


Dear Editor:

Almost two years ago, the Board
of County Commissioners
unanimously voted to dedicate a
stretch of U.S. Highway 19 to
the late Specialist 4 Thomas B.
Corbin, who was awarded
posthumously the Silver Star,
the third-highest military deco-
ration awarded for gallantry
against an enemy of the United
States. Spec 4 Thomas was the
first soldier from Dixie County
to lose his life while serving his
country, in the Vietnam War.
This matter, was immediately
forwarded to the Florida legisla:
ture for approval. The Corbin
family continues to wait for this
matter to become a reality. Our
concern was intensified when
the legislature recently passed
HB 0029, which dedicated roads
to eight men, including Former
Miami Dolphins coach, Don
Shula. Unfortunately for our
family, this bill made no men-
tion of Thomas B. Corbin. What
message are our representatives
sending when they place the val-
ye of a Super Bowl ring over
that of one of our nation's high-
est military decorations? We dis-
covered this travesty when we
had a meeting with our state
representative, Leonard Bembry.

On June 23, Mr. Bembry in-
formed us that he had never
heard of the Corbin matter until
a few weeks prior to out meet-
ing. After continuing to pres-
sure him for answers, he resort-.
ed to doing what most politi-
cians do, he blamed his prede-
cessor. Bembry informed us that
"the guy in office before I got
here"had letit slip through the
cracks and that he was unsure
of the reason behind his inac-
tion. He concluded the meeting
and d eassuredA us that a
bill containing Corbin's name
will be presented at the next leg-
islative session. The "other guy"
Bembry was referring to was
former representative, Will
Kendrick.

On.July 1, Mr. Kendrick made
contact with our family and pas-
sionately denied the charges
made against him by Mr. Bem-
bry and will attempt to attend
the July 15 commissioners meet-
ing in order to defend his name.
For whatever reason, Mr. Bem-
bry is playing politics with the
name of a fallen soldier who
was decorated for valor.

We encourage everyone who is
passionate about this matter to
attend the July 15 commission-
ers meeting at 6:00 and voice
their concerns and opinions.
Our hope is that the circum-
stances involving this matter
will not go unanswered, and
that indeed it will have been an
oversight and one that will be
rectified sooner than later. Our
country is once again involved


in yet another war on foreign
soil where our young men and
women continue to lose their
lives at an alarming rate. If, we,
not only as politicians, citizens
and human beings, have the op-
portunity to honor one of our
soldiers, should we not take a
moment of our time to do so?

Is it not the least we can do as
we sit in our comfortable board-
rooms and legislative meeting
rooms and living rooms, given
the "freedom" to act on these de-
cisions that bring some comfort
and closure to families across
our great country? It is our
duty to recognize those that
fight for us and hold them in a
position of honor and respect
where opportunity presents it-
self. I ask you to stand together
as a county and let's do what's
right for Thomas B. Corbin and
all of our men and women that
put themselves in harm's way
for our freedom.

Respectfully,
The Thomas B. Corbin ,
Family
Dear Editor:
Election time is upon us once
again. Politics is very time con-
suming with all the home visits,
benefits, fund raisers, hand
shaking and just plain talking to
people hoping to gain their
rust, and their vote: It is a time
that for the ones running for
their prospective positions to re-
ally put their best foot forward,
o make a good impression on
the voters.

So, why then was one of the can-
didates and wife witnessed by
uite a few people drinking alco-
ol at the fight promoted by *
ubba Q's restaurant on July 3,
1010? Then the same people
watched, shocked, as he got in
his vehicle and drove away down
Hwy 19 with no designated dri-
ver.

This candidate may have lost the
votes of quite a few people. Run-
ning for such a position does not
put you above the law, and dri-
ing after consuming alcohol is
against the law. So I ask you,
what do you have to say for your
self?
Respectfully, Bea Gregory, Old
Town


old fogey comment that maybe the throbbing music is too
loud for algebra. Are we training up a generation of kids
who are so distracted by all their high-tech toys that they've
lost the ability to single-task? To focus? bT think?

Some professors from Iowa State released a study they did
on video games and television on the attention spans of kids
and college students. It was about what you'd expect:
screens are bad for your brain if you use them too much.
"Too much," according to the Iowa guys, is two hours a day.
Anything over that doubles the risk of attention disorders
and a whole host of issues like "poor impulse control" that
give kids a hard time in school. Nothing new there. The
study didn't look at internet use, but I suspect that it would
be even'more insidious than Call of Duty 18 on the XBox.

I don't need grant-funded scientists to tell me that I'm spend-
ing too much time in front of a machine;
ns a8M wont to my own brain tells me that. So I'm going to
ys, whlh start cutting back on my non-work comput-
ys, Whicher and internet use. (Sorry Facebook
attention Irm friends!) I want to see if it will help me fo-
dinS rThey ar cus enough to at least get through a book
chapter without worrying about the latest
Od meaI s to an headlines on The Drudge Report. I'll let you
Imp ed end know how it works out.

I've also done a re-think on my homeschool
r M Iwu. curriculum for the kids. Instead of using
the online learning program we've been do-
ing, next year we're going to a non-techno-
logical, old-school curriculum called "Trails to Learning,
Pathways of Exploration" that emphasizes American histo-
ry, reading, science, and copywork. (For you young whipper-
snappers, that's copying down a selection of text, with your
hands! With pencil! On paper! Weird and alien, I know.)
We're going to stick with the computer for math, though, be-
cause the "best" program I've found, Teaching Textbooks,
only comes that way. But overall, we're cutting back on the
screen time at my house. My son, the video game addict,
may melt down a bit, but it's for his own good.

Oddly enough, some Professors at Harvard and Texas A&M
are dismissing the Iowa State study, saying that the re-
searchers didn't pay enough attention to economic disparity
and parental education and that the results of the study are
probably skewed. Go figure. Maybe they've been playing too
many video games in Iowa. So who's gonna tell us all why
we're stupid when the young scientists are too stupid to do
the studies properly? Inquiring minds want to know.


Dear Editor:
My name is Cynthia Crowley and I am and have been a resi-
dent of Dixie County my entire adult life. I am a registered
voter. I have questions for our candidates running for County
Judge.

1) What are your views on the deadbeat mothers we now have
Sour court systems in and around our county? ,
2) What do you plan to do to ensure that the children of these
deadbeat mothers receive the proper support?

Please give justice not only to the children in these cases, but
.the hard working fathers and/or stepmothers that are sup-
porting these children every day! Please feel free to respond.
I'm sure that I'm not the only voter with questions concern-
ing deadbeat mothers.-- Cynthia Crowley, Cross City
.......................................................... .....................................................................


Dear Mrs. Crowley,

I must answer the questions
somewhat vaguely. As the Act-
ing Circuit Judge here in Dixie
County, I have been presiding
over Child Custody, Child De-
pendency, and Child Support
cases. I can not pre-judge any
such cases which may come be-
fore me. Neither I nor the citi-
zens of Dixie County want a
Judge who has prejudged their
cases.

Since I have had thirty plus
years experience in family law
cases, I am aware of the vast
arsenal of remedies available;.
as enacted by our legislature.
For several years, I haveFbeen
on the Family Law Rules Com-
mittee wherein we have imple-
ment Court Rules to effectuate
those legislative acts. The guid-
ing light has always been "the
best interest of the children."

SChildren whose parent or par-.
ents can not or will not ade-
quately support them are enti-
tled to their day in court. Simi-
larly, a Mother or a Father who
is having trouble meeting
her/his financial obligations is
entitled to have her/his day in
court. Certainly, some parents
make every effort to provide for
their children, but still fall
short. Equally certainly, others
make little or no effort. In the
Circuit Court, those two scenar-
ios must be treated differently;
each case is to be decided on its
own merits.

When two people conceive a
child, their mutual support
obligation starts. All parents
should be encouraged by what-
ever means available to meet
their natural obligation of sup-
port. As a general principle, I
believe that more encourage-
ment, help and tolerance
should be extended to a parent
who is genuinely trying to help
one's children and oneself.

More "encouragement" may be
necessary when it has been
proven that a parent willfully
and intentionally disregards
her/his-obligation. Since 2003,


when I became the presiding
judge in this area of the law, I
have imposed a very wide vari-
ety of "encouragements" or
remedies against non-support-
ive parents. On one hand those
remedies include simple orders
to pay and temporary custodial
changes. At the other end of
the spectrum are incarceration
and in appropriate cases termi-
nation of parental rights.

Obviously, that spectrum is
very wide. Each case depends
on its own evidence and merit.
I can not predict what evidence
will be brought before me in
any case. However, I can guar-
antee that I will do my upmost
to follow the law and provide
for "the best interest of the
children."

-Judge Koberlein

Dear Mrs. Crowley,

In response to your ques-
tions, the children of our
community are of the up-
most importance to me and I
will do everything in my
power to ensure their best
welfare. The type qf cases
you are referring to are fact
sensitive and each case must
be handled differently ac-
cording to the variables. In
all cases, however, I will fol-
low the necessary proce-
dures, as set forth by the
Florida legislature. Case
plans will be established for
these problematic mothers to
follow and it will be my re-
sponsibility to ensure that
these plans are adhered to. In
the event that these mothers
continue to be problematic, I
will have to resort to differ-
ent avenues as set forth by
the established laws of Flori-
da, while keeping in mind
the hardworking fathers,
stepmothers and other family
members who are supporting
these children.

prd, Rifers

by Bonnie Wilson

"Summertime and the liv-
ing is easy... There are lots
of songs of summer, and if
you'll pardon the pun, there
are some "hot" tunes
around. Summer has ar-
rived with the usual hot and
humid days. Days that make
us a wee bit lazy, looking for
the air-conditioning comfort
of our homes. In those fa-
mous words of Tracy Bird,
"too hot to golf, too hot to
fish..." and Tracy, it's just
about too hot to ride.

Levy County Horse Club
does not plan rides for July
and those dog days of Au-
gust. However I do know
that some of our members
will get together for early
morning rides during the
summer. I applaud your ef-
forts, and I hope you will
have a terrific time! I would
love to hear of your adven-
tures on your morning out-
ings. Won't you share some
tall tales with us? What in-
credible things did you see
on your journey? What was
blowing in the wind, or was
that just you, trying to catch
a breath? Did you see some
extraordinary wild life? Do
tell! There is so much to see
right here in our own back-
yards. You just need to be a
little adventuresome.

All this heat has me looking
forward to the fall. I am
dreaming of campfires, and
a circle of friends singing,
and having a great time af-
ter a wonderful "cool" ad-
venturesome ride. It must


be the heat making me
delirious! It's really funny
to think while it's cold, cold-
er than the North Pole (or
so it seems); we look for-
ward to warmer weather.
And now that it's getting to
be hotter than a Nevada
desert, we're thinking win-
ter would be pleasant right
about now.

Ah... to be human, makes
us a little squirrelly some-
times. Frightening thought.
hummm? Well we can be
just about as indecisive as a
squirrel. Some of us are a
wee bit squirrelly anyway
and I'm.afraid you'll have to
coimt me in on that one!
However, as they say, what
doesn't kill us makes us
stronger.

My allergies have been giv-
ing me a fit as of late. I'm
constantly either wiping my
eyes, or my nose, and I can
only breath out of my left
nostril because the right
one is closed off. Oh Boy! is-
n't summer grand?
The doctors prescribe pills,
so I take a pill and try to
chill, however it makes me
so sleepy I can't stay awake.
SOOOOO... you must put up
with the consequences of
NOT taking a pill! Boy!
What a decision. About the
only thing I've come up
with, is to take the pill at
night. At least I'll get a good
nights rest,. right? I've got
the summertime blues! Hey,
somebody wake me up when
it's fall ya'll! If you'd like to
join us contact us at

Until next time, Happy
Trails!

tion's first and largest nonparti-
san organization for veterans of
the wars in Iraq and

Life and will'be held in dozens
of cities nationwide. Confirmed
Iraq and Afghanistan veterans
can access free tickets to these
experiences at the new website
TheRucksack.org.

"This is huge. This innovative
campaign will make an impact
on the lives of thousands of vet-
erans and their families across
the country. It provides those
who have served with positive,
unforgettable experiences, while
connecting them with the criti-

these events, why not make it a
High Life and help support our
country's veterans?"

.The "Give a Veteran a Piece of
the High Life" campaign en-
courages Americans to take ac-
tion and support this genera-
tion of veterans by collecting
and depositing Miller High Life
and Miller High Life Light bot-
tle caps and can thbs. Miller
High Life is donating 10 cents
for every one of millions of spe-
cially marked caps or tabs re-
turned to participating retail
accounts or via mail between
July 1 and September 30, 2010.
Proceeds will go directly to pro-
viding veterans with a variety
of memorable "High Life Expe-
riences." These experiences
range from all-access VIP pass-
es to the Coke Zero 400
NASCAR race at Daytona Inter-
national Speedway, to tickets to
the 2010 MLB All
Star Game to tick-
ets to the PGA U.S.
Senior Open Cham
pionship.
Iraq and
Afghanistan veter-
ans can visit
TheRucksack.org
to find unique
"High Life Experi-
ences" in their
community and request tickets.
The Rucksack is the first and
only tool to connect Iraq and
Afghanistan veterans with do-
nated tickets and experiences.
Veterans must be confirmed (pa
perwork-certified) IAVA mem-
bers to gain access to these
events and opportunities. The
Rucksack also gives partners,
sponsors or individuals a plat-
form to provide experiences to
returning veterans nationwide.

Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans
of America (www.IAVA.org) is
the country's first and largest
nonprofit, nonpartisan organize
tion for veterans of the wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan and has
more than 180,000 veteran mem-
bers and civilian supporters na-
tionwide.

The Miller High Life "Give a
Veteran a Piece of the High
Life" program will be supported
with extensive print, television,
radio and online advertising,
point-of-sale, custom packaging
and public relations efforts na-
tionwide. For more information
on how to get involved, visit
www.MilleHighLife.cpm.

Shameless Plug : Please
go online and vote for
local author

Hi Ms. McKinney, I have
submitted the attached es-
say to a contest run by the
chef/author Anthony Bour-
dain. The essay must ad-
dress the question "What
Does It Mean To Cook Well?
The winning essay will ap-
pear in the appendix of the
paperback edition of his
current book--Medium Raw.
The essays must be submit-
ted to the website
www.bourdainmediumraw.com.
and there is a voting proce-
dure on the website. Since
the essay is about Dixie
County and the Gulf of
Mexico I thought you might
be interested and if I may
make a shameless request,
if you think it is good
enough to print in the news-
paper maybe I can make a
shameless request for votes.
Any comments or critique
is welcome! C. Tobon
Ms. Tobon: Ican do shameless with
the best of them. Printed your intro
so people would know where to vote
for you! -ed

The Silence of the Clams

So, I'm sitting here on the
back porch in the middle of
my little acre of land in Dix-
ie County near the Gulf
Coast of North Florida
thinking about an'answer to
your question. The oil has-
n't yet reached us in the Big
Bend area but we all know
it's comin'.
A southern table is piled
high with tradition in rural
North Florida. Cooking


well begins with the famil-
iar cry "y'all stay for sup-
per." A good southern cook
can make a little feed a lot.
They can turn gravy into a
sacrament, beans into a
benediction and peppers,
celery and onions into the
Holy Trinity. One might
even find religion at a
southern table! On many
menus, the food comes from
your garden or your neigh-
bor's field. If it moos, oinks
or clucks one week it might
mean supper the next. Fish-
ing is also a way of life in
our community. The Suwan-
nee and Steinhatchee Rivers
and the waters offshore in
the Gulf of Mexico provide
an abundant array of
seafood depending on the
season. We diligently man-
age our natural resources in
Florida. Of course, those
sea creatures aren't as vocal
as the barnyard variety.
But, we give a voice to the
clams, oysters, shrimp, scal-
lops, and fish with every
slurp and nibble of appreci-
ation at our southern tables.
We must now sadly contem-
plate the catastrophe that is
destined to change not only
the natural resources found
in the Gulf but the entire
ecological future of this
part of the planet. Have we
created a Dead Sea? That
will have to be left to the sci-
entists to fathom. One thing
is for sure---the silence of
the oysters, shrimp, scallops
and the clams will no longer
be broken at our southern
tables, at least for a while.
And southern cooks along
the Gulf Coast will have to
work a bit harder to drown
out the hush.

Miss Me, But Let Me Go
When I come to the end of the road and the sun has set for
me, I want no nites in a gloom filled room, why cry for a
soul set free? Miss me a little, but not too long and not with
your head bowed low. Remember the Love that we once
showed, Miss Me, But Let Me Go. For this is a journey we
all must take, and each must go alone. It's all part of the
Master's plan, a step on the road to home. When you are
lonely and sick of heart, go to the friends we know, and
laugh your sorrows in good deeds. Miss Me, But Let Me Go.
We Love and Miss you, Betty Ann, Raymond, Crystal, and

Summer Safety

Tips


Personal Safety:
Make sure your child
knows his or her full name,
their parent's names, and their
address and phone number.
Make sure your child
knows when and how to dial 911.
Make sure your child
knows the difference between a
good secret and a bad secret.
Strangers and the Buddy Sys-
tem:
Teach your children
that a stranger is anyone they
don't know well. Even people
they recognize like the mail-
man are strangers, and that
someone can be a stranger even
if they look nice or know their
name.
Teach your children
that if a stranger approaches
them they should YELL, "NO,
STRANGER, STRANGER,"
RUN to where'there are safe
adults, and TELL an adult.
Make sure your chil-
dren use the "buddy system"
and avoid walking or playing
alone outside and in public
places. Playing in groups is rec-
ommended.
Walking:
Teach your children
that they should always face
traffic when walking so that
they can see if someone stops
their car near them.
Make sure your chil-


Dear Editor:

I have read and fully support the letter to the editor for-
warded to me by Curtis Hines and the Corbin Family. The
county commissioners voted in the affirmative over 2 years
ago. I agree that it is time to end all the bureaucratic mum-
bo jumbo, stalling and politicizing of the issue and get it
done.

Do you want the rest of the country to see you in Florida as
even MORE BACKWARD than many feel we here in ARI-
ZONA ARE? (As early as 2004 or '05, even a "backward"
State as some feel WE are was able to cut the political red-
tape and re-name a mountain beside, and a stretch of one of
our Highways here, from it's former "Squaw Peak" to
"Piestewa Peak" (In honor of the FIRST WOMAN, AND
FIRST NAVAJO) Soldier from Arizona who gave her life in
service to her country???!!!!! Are you Floridians going to let
ARIZONA show you up? Do you have ANY pride in your
state and it's Residents? Any sense of what is REALLY im-
portant in this issue?

I encourage you to use the media power to expose this fool-
ish political bandying with this issue, and the positive reso-
lution of the same. After all, the county commissioners had
ALREADY approved it over 2 years ago!

Do America, Florida and yourselves a favor and just get the
red tape cut, and goad the politicos to just "Get it done"

As a possibly interesting side note This heroe Corbin,
served in a unit which eventually produced a CHAIRMAN
OF THE JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF He was the Battalion
Commander of 2/77FA for a time in Vietnam, during the
Vietnam War. -General John Vessey Totally verifiable, and
researchable.

Building Your Own Farm's Food
Safety Manual and Plan Workshop
- Offered by UF/IFAS
Suwannee Valley Extension Team

The University of
Florida/IFAS Cooperative
Extension Service in the
Suwannee Valley area will
be offering two separate,
one- day workshops to help
growers develop their own
food safety manuals. At the
end of each one-day work-
shop, your farm/greenhouse
will have a ready to
print copy of a basic safety
manual and plan.

The workshops will be done
on a computer (one lap top
will be provided for in-
house use per farm if
necessary) using a web-
based food safety manual
development program. Each
workshop will be limited to
15 farms on a first come
first serve basis. Each farm
may bring an additional.
person for those farmers
needing computer assis-
tance.

The workshops will be held
at the North Florida Re-
search and Education Cen-
ter Suwannee Valley
(NFREC-SV) Farm Confer-
ence Room at 8202 County
Road 417, Live Oak, Florida.
NFREC-SV serves the di-
verse agricultural interests
in the region including veg-
etables, fruit crops, protect-
ed culture, forestry, alterna-
tive enterprises and other
forage crops.

These workshops are sup-
ported by a grant through
the Florida Specialty Crops
Block Grants program
from the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and
Consumer Service and
made possible through the
guidance and training of
UF/IFAS Extension Food
Safety Specialist Dr. Keith
Schneider, Food Science
and Human Nutrition.

Bob Hochmuth, a Multi-
county Extension Agent,
North Florida REC -
Suwannee Valley advises
that "Small farm and green-


house operators would be
wise to take advantage of
these workshops as most
intermediate or large chain
store buyers now require
some level of food safety
program be in place
from each farm before they
buy. Even smaller opera-
tions selling directly to con-
sumers are encouraged
to develop a manual for
their farm as food safety
will become even more im-
portant in the future".

The registration fee is
$100.00/first person repre-
senting a farm and
$20.00/additional farm at-
tendee per workshop which
includes lunch and refresh-
ments. All educational mate-
rials in the Food Safety
Tool Kit will be provided for
the farms through the
grant. Registration is con-
firmed when a registration
form and payment is re-
ceived. The first 15 farms to
register will be accepted.
Visit

registration form. For more

THANK YOU!


you ain't eat-
ing good during the sum-
mertime you are missing
some good grub. Peas,
creamed corn, fresh toma-
toes and some kind of meat
thrown in. Can't be beat. I
must admit I am glad our
garden is at it's end. We
mainly got a crop of toma-
toes. They looked terrible.
Looked as if they had been
in a war. Now this is not to
imply we didn't have a good
crop, they just looked bad.
Mister Man gets indignant if
I hint that his tomatoes were.
anything but plentiful. Oh,
and we one eggplant I
named Ruben. It just looked
like a Ruben. Our family al-
ways has always come up
with names for the first of
anything we grow. The first
tomato is always Ricky Boo-
by. My son once named the
one and only watermelon we
were able to produce Dale Jr.
I don't know why but it al-
ways gives me a chuckle.

While looking for some dif-
ferent recipes for the last of
our garden bounty I found

Leonard (Leo) Clifford Eaton
September 12, 1936 -June 26, 2010

The Lord called Leo home after a hard fought battle with cancer. He
was in his bed with his wife by his side. He kept his great sense of
humor and his love of Country Music right up tp the end.

He is survived by his wife, Jeffie, daughter and son-in-law, Lynn and
James Thomas (Maysville, GA.); son and daughter-in-law, Sam and
Denise Eaton (Villa Rica, GA.); and four grandchildren, J.R. Lynch
(Stuart. FL.), and Kevin Clifford Lynch (Saminole, OK.)-
Eric Becky Lynn Eaton (Villa Rica, GA.)

Leo is preceded in death by his grandmother,
Arkansas Waters Honea (McDonough, GA.)

ference between right and wrong; also a gentle-
man always carries a clean pressed handker-
chief. Also proceeding him was his beloved
grandson, Casey R. Lynch, (Seminolei Ok, a Ca-
sualty of Iraq War; his'brother, Wdward J. (McDo-
nough, Ga.); his Father, Lebnard Clifford Eaton, Sr.

school. Leo was a staunch believer in the brotherhood of unions, but
did not believe in striking. (It was, however; okay to go fishing for
two to three weeks!), and would never cross another-trades' picket
line. He worked on most of the high-rise office buildings in Atlanta
and was in charge of the installation of the alarm at the 1996

ber 5, 1973, Leo received his certificate as a Free and Accepted Mason

gree Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite Mason on October 28, 1976.
Shortly after moving to Steinhatchee, Fl. Leo was asked to and did
join the Morocco Dixie Shrine Club. He served as Club Treasurer for
fiscal years 2005 through 2009, and Ambassador to the Potentate. No-
ble Leo received numerous awards including 2007 Shriner of the
year.

New Prospect News

New Prospect Baptist was
very blessed Sunday morning
with a wonderful gathering of
HIS people. We had a wonder-
ful song service and a great
message brought to us by
Bro.Adam Mason of Houston,
Texas. His message gave great
instructions on how and why
we do what we do. Do we go to
church for the right reason ?
His message was a blessing.
His message came from Isa-
iah 1 and starting with 13th
verse.

Bro. Mason will be doing the
services at the Suwannee Riv-
er KOA Campgrounds this
week. Our Church is enjoy-
ing a church retreat through
Friday night. Our church has
done this for 8 years and it is
a blessing. All ages have
things going on that is most
enjoyable.

In the upcoming weeks, a cel-
ebration for our pastor will
be observed. He has been the
pastor at New Prospect for 32
years. That must set a record
. What a blessing he is and
how he has given his all to
the church.

We ask prayer for the many
bereaved ones and the sick
ones. God will hear His peo-
ple's prayers. Don't forget to


pray for our nation. We invite
you to New Prospect Baptist .
If you were visiting, please
come back and if you are
looking for a church home, we
welcome you to be a part of
our church.

May GOD give you a blessed
and safe week!

both friends and strangers with her laughter, and the joy
she found in the people around her. She laughed a lot.

mother, Lenore Hickman of Walterboro, SC and paternal
grandmother Rebecca June Davis Thompson, of Easley,
SC.


Lifelong friends and con-
stant caregivers who have
contributed most to Crys-
tal's life include Barbara

special aunt, Kathleen

I am from Louisiana and I know our beaches are our home,

At BP we have taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf. We are committed to
keeping you informed:

Looking For Oil
Crews are cleaning Gulf Coast beaches 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When oil is spotted,
the Response Command Center is notified, a Shore Cleanup AssessmentTeam (SCAT)
is mobilized and cleanup begins immediately. Cleanup efforts are being coordinated from
17 staging areas in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Over 33,000 people are
involved in the cleanup operation.

If you see oil on the beach, please call 1-866-448-5816 and we'll send a team to clean it up.

Cleaning Up the Beaches
The number of people mobilized to clean up.the beaches depends on the'size of the'
affected area. Individual teams can number in the hundreds, and thousands of additional
workers remain on-call. Working with the Coast Guard, our teams continue cleaning up
until the last bit of oil has been removed. As a result, in most cases when oil reaches a
beach, it is even possible to keep' it open.

Our Responsibility
Our beach cleanup operations will continue until the last of the oil has been skimmed
from the sea, the beaches and estuaries have been cleaned up, and the region has been
pronounced oil-free. And none of the costs of our efforts will be paid by taxpayers.

Our commitment is that we'll be here for as long as it takes. We may not always be
Perfect, but we will make this right.


For assistance, please call:
To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816
To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401
To make spill-related claims: (800) 440,0858
