18 arrested in Steinhatchee


Taylor Courty Sheriffs Of-
fice (TCSO) and the Florida
Department of Law En-
forcement (FDLE) Tallahas-
see Regional Operations
Center yesterday arrested
18 individuals on charges of
prescription drug traffick-
ing. The arrest sweep fol-
lows a nine-month joint in-
vestigation which targeted
illegal pharmaceutical drug
sales and distribution in
Taylor County.

The investigation began af-
ter the TCSO received infor-
mation about individuals
unlawfully selling and dis-
tributing pharmaceuticals.
Investigators learned that
the subjects obtained the
drugs by traveling to central
Florida and paying doctors
to write them prescriptions
for painkillers, anti-anxiety
medicines and muscle relax-
ants. Some subjects were
prescribed the drugs in un-
usually large quantities and
received prescriptions with-
out an existing medical con-
dition. In other cases, the
doctors would provide the
.subjects with blank pre-
scriptions and allow.the
subjects to fill in the quanti-
ty of the drug themselves.
The subjects would then fill
the prescriptionsat various
pharmacies and transport
the pills back to Taylor
County where they were
distributed and sold to oth-


ers. The prescription drugs
unlawfully obtained and
sold included Oxycodone,
'Methadone, Roxicodone, Hy-
drocodone, Xanax and
Soma. Several of the sub-
jects were also selling illicit
drugs such as cocaine and
marijuana.

'This,roundup is a result of
hard work and collabora-
' tion between law enforce-
ment agencies and I extend
my thanks to all those in-
volved," said Sheriff L.E.
"Bummy" Williams. "We
know working together is
the most effective way to ad-&
dress the problem of pre-
scription drug crimes and
stop individuals who profit
from unlawfully providing
pain pills to others."

"Prescription drugs are po-
tent and highly addictive
and they have no place be-
ing sold on the streets," said
FDLE Special Agent in
Charge Don Ladner. "Abuse
of these substances can
have deadly consequences
and we will continue to go
after those who traffic pre-
scription drugs in our com-
munities."

SThe following individuals
were arrested and booked
into the Taylor County Jail:
Robert Whiddon, 47, of Per-
ry, charged with eight
counts of sale of a con-


trolled substance;

Collis Watson, 42, of Stein-
hatchee, charged with one
count of sale of a controlled
substance and three counts
of sale bf cannabis;

Dana Watson, 42, of Stein-
hatchee, charged with one
count of sale of a controlled
substance, one count of
sale of cannabis, and one
count of possession of more
than 20 grams of cannabis;

Christian Nielson, 30, of
Steinhatchee, charged with
two counts of sale of a con-
trolled substance and one
count of sale of cannabis;

Kenneth Shutterly, 52, of
Steinhatchee, charged with
two counts of sale of a con-
trolled substance;

Casey Deller, 22, of Stein-
hatchee, charged with two
counts of sale of a con-
trolled substance;

hatchee, charged with three

controlled substance;

hatchee, charged with one
count of sale of a controlled
substance;

Dr. Rooks finished up the summer library program last
Wednesday. He did magic tricks, showed off his mad hokey
pokey skills, and played Jeremiah was a Bullfrog on his
ukelele. He taught thb kids to sing in musical rounds, and
brought the summer to a successful end. The Library's cook-
ing class hhaas has one more session left on Tuesday. A fibre
arts guild for Dixie County's knitters, spinners, crocheters,
quilters, seamstresses and people who just want to learn is be-
ing formed. Contact Cindy at the library or editor@dcadvo-
cate.net for more information.


Cross City's new Dollar Gen-
eral store opened for business
this week, to packed parking
lots and lots of oohss" and
"aahs" at the size of the store.
The store relocated from the
long-time location at Evans
Square after the lease ended.
Construction was rapid and
the new store is open for your
shopping convenience at the


north end of town, across the
street from Hardee's on US
19.

As the first new commercial
construction in thearea in a
very long time, the building is
particularly welcome as a
source of badly-needed jobs
and tax revenue.

Cops & cameras


Last March, Anthony Graber, an Air National Guardsman
in Maryland, got busted for speeding and otherwise improp-
erly operating a motorcycle. Of his guilt in this singularly
inappropriate exhibition of recklessness there can be no
doubt, nor does he deny it. What he doesn't like is the fact
that he has been charged with a felony for video taping de-
tails of his own arrest with a camera mounted on his hel-
met.

It seems the arresting officer was in an unmarked vehicle .
'and drew a gun on Grabet as soon as the pursuit came to a
stop, which appeared to be something of an over-reaction,
considering the fact that Graber was not accused of making
an aggressive move toward the officer. About the worst the
police could have come out in this situation would have
been for the officer to get a slap on the wrist, with Graber
paying his fine for speeding regardless. Nonetheless, the po-
lice raided Graber's parents' home, confiscated his camera,
his computer and external hard drives. Graber was then
'charged with violating a "wiretapping" law by recording
the traffic stop.

Maryland is one of many jurisdictions in which it is illegal
to record police activities without permission. However we
Frequently see police interacting with rioters and carrying
out other official functions on television. Are we to suppose
television stations first ask permission? Have you ever
heard of a TV crew being indicted for recording police rein-
ing in a rumble? Does the "establishment media" enjoy
carte blanche to pursue this activity, while a mere taxpayer
risks jail time for doing the same thing?

Remember the Rodney King incident in LA back in 1991?
Some officers stopped King following a high speed chase
through a residential neighborhood, and when King resist-
ed arrest, he got a sure enough attitude adjustment from
about a half-dozed officers. He was not seriously injured,
but the incident was taped by a neighbor and given to a tele-
vision station, and from there it went national. The officers
were acquitted of misconduct, then riots broke out nation-
wide and were quelled only by re-trying the officers on "civ-
il rights" charges. At no time, however, was there any men-
tion of the bystander who filmed the incident being
charged with illegally recording an incident involving the
police.

Let us now suppose that a lone highway patrolman stopped
a car driving recklessly, and a half-dozen hoodlums
emerged and simultaneously attacked the officer, injuring
him seriously. It was dark, and the officer was unable to
identify any of the attackers. He had recorded the car's tag
number, but it turned out to be stolen. Fortunately, a young
woman with a camera phine arrived on the scene at just
the right time. The hoods didn't notice her, but she recorded
the whole thing before the culprits sped off. She called for
help, then made the recording available to police, who were
able to identify two of the attackers, who then ratted out
their buddies, all of whom were sent up for lengthy so-
journs at a state detention facility However, the young lady
with the camera phone had illegally ] recorded police activ-
ity. Do you suppose she would have been prosecuted?

Apparently, it depends on "whose ox is being gored." It all
comes down, not to whether or not it's strictly legal, but
how the information being recorded will impact the police
officers) involved. And it can bethe difference between be-
ing a hero and being sent up the river.

The police video tape traffic stops, secretly record inter-
views with suspects, etc. And that's fine. But there's no rea-
son why a citizen shouldn't have the same option. There's
nothing about an arrest for a traffic violation that needs to
be kept confidential. The person being arrested gets his/her
name in the paper and maybe on the six o'clock news before
being convicted of anything, and the officer will probably
record at least some portion of the arrest for purposes of
certifying evidence. Definitely no consideration of privacy
'fbr thetacused in effect there, so why should the arresting .
officer be spared the disclosure of relevant details that
might help the accused? It seems only reasonable that all
parties to an arrest should be subject to the same scrutiny


The Booty That Went To Jury Duty: Uncovered


by Kathy McKinney

ome with me for a few minutes, if you will,
o jury duty last week. I know, nobody likes
duty, but it will only take a few minutes
d you'll be back home before you know it.
're a little late, so let's slide into that open
spot there next to the nice manon the back row.
He's sort of handsome, isn't he? Shhhh....let's keep our mind'
on the business at hand...here comes Dana, the Clerk of .
Court. She looks nice today. I wonder.where she shops?
Shhh...quit distracting me, she's talking.

Oh, it's just some boring stuff about paperwork. I'll get out
my knitting and we'll just sit here and watch the people
around us for entertainment while we wait. People-watching
is fun, isn't it?

Look, there's Mrs. Underhill, up there in the sec-
ond row She was my fifth grade teacher, did you
know? We used to walk to school together. She's IS
such a sweet lady..she has a different last name
now, but like Mrs. Keating who will always be man's
Mrs. Keating in my mind, Mrs. Underhill will
always be Mrs. Underhill to me. And look, Of
there's Roy Walker in the other aisle over there.
The baliffs look younger every year, don't they?
I'm getting old. Hmm...I don't know too many of
the other people, do you?

How about this young man sitting in the back row with us?
Do you know him? Is he sick? He's all curled up in the cor-
ner over there, sitting almost backwards on the uncomfort-
able court bench, with his back to the room and his nose in
the corner, like a naughty first grader who has talked inap-
propriately in Mr. Taylor's class. Why is he hunched over
like that? With his back to us, all I can see is his plaid boxer
underwear, pouring out of the top of his shorts, which must
hanging around his knees somewhere, as if the elastic has
finally given up the ghost. He really should turn down what-
ever music that is he's listening to through those head-
phones. I can hear the base thumping fifteen feet away from
him and the handsome man next to us is starting to stare.'

The young man seems to be trying to show the people wait-
ing for jury duty and the officers of the court that he's not a
part of this; that he's here against his will. He seems to be
purposely trying to broadcast disrespect, doesn't he? He also
seems to be the only one in the room who didn't dress up a
bit to show that jury duty is a serious business. He looks as
if he just got out of bed...and then just decided not to get
dressed at all. Yes, yes, I know I'm not one to be talking. I
need a haircut, I know, and these slacks are probably as old
as the kid in the corner is, but stop pestering me, Dana is
taking the roll. It'll be our turn soon, she's up to the "G's" al-


ready Clear your throat and get ready to say "here" without
squeaking or sounding stupider than normal.

"What!" Oh, good Lord, can you believe he answered like
that? Instead of quietly saying "here" like every other per-
son has before him, the young man curled in the back cor-
ner just exploded out with a loud, angry, accusing "What?"
like we had woken him without reason at 6 am on Saturday
morning. Everybody is shocked, aren't they? Yes, yes, I
know, they can't really put you in jail for that, but I'll be
willing to bet that if the Judge had been in the room, that
young man would have finished up his day regretting his
disrespect for the court. Dana looks totally flabbergasted. I'll
bet no one else has done that before.

And did you hear that lady in the other aisle who stopped
the court in it's tracks when she responded, out loud to the
young man in an accusatory tone pitched so
Rudeness that the whole court could hear, "Why, that's
just RUDE!" Oh, yes, I quite agree: she's my
the weak n hw hero this week. I don't know who she
is, do you? I can't see her for the tall man
Imitation sitting between us, but I have got to say, that
lady has cojones. She is the voice of civiliza-
Strengths tion today, and doesn't even know it. I like
her. She said what every other person in the
-Etc Hoffer room so desperately wanted to say, but was
too embarrassed to voice out loud. Sure, you
and I can whisper amongst ourselves, but
she had the nerve to stand up and fearlessly correct the
young man. We need more people like you, Awesome Lady of
Good Public Manners. You rock.'

Shhhh...here comes Judge Koberlein. Stand up. Oh, good. I
don't believe his blatant flattery when he says we are such
an upright jury pool-did he see that young man?-- that we
scared the parties into not going to trial, but as long as we
can get back to work, who cares? Come on, let's slip out the
back door and walk back over to the office. We've still got to
lay out some political ads for this week. I told you jury duty
wouldn't take long. And don't you feel better for going?

Oh, look, there's the young man who was so rude in court.
Oh my gosh, I'm glad I didn't see him standing up in the
courtroom, with his shorts down around his lower hips like
that. Why, his butt is totally uncovered by his. shorts...all you
can see are boxers. Shameful to go to court dressed that way,
isn't it? His mama must be so proud. He's walking along the
sidewalk, looking at his reflection in Langston's windows.

His pants fell down!! Stop laughing at him, it's rude. He's
shamefacedly pulling them up and then checking his reflec-
tion in the window to see if they're giving the.right impres-
sion. Come on now, we don't have time to giggle, we have
work to do.

Dear Editor: playing field and foster
healthy, fair competition.


The Automotive Recyclers
Association (ARA) strongly
urges Congress to pass the
Motor Vehicle Owners'
Right to Repair Act (S
3181/HR 2057) to ensure that
the automotive repair indus-
try remains competitive so
that vehicle owners can af-
fordably and conveniently
have their vehicles serviced.

Car owners and indepen-
dent shops need full access
to the information, parts
and tools necessary to accu-
rately diagnose, repair or
reprogram today's modern
vehicles, yet vehicle manu-
facturers are making access
to such vital information in-
creasingly difficult and cost-
ly to obtain for independent
repair sh6ps and their cus-
tomers. Without access to
critical safety and repair in-
formation, motorists will be
forced to patronize new car
dealerships which may not
be convenient or easily ac-
cessible to a car owner.

The Right to Repair Act will
allow independent repair fa-
cilities and automobile recy-
clers to compete on a level


Now, our members are
forced to turn customers
away everyday who want to
use affordable recycled auto
parts because it has become
increasing difficult to ob-
tain the information needed
'to reinitialize the car's com-
puter from the vehicle man-
ufacturers. Contrary to
their claims, Right to Repair
would riot require disclo-
sure of the manufacturers'
processes and trade secrets,
and would not affect the
dealer's warranty agree-
ment.

The Right to Repair Act has
bipartisan support in both
chambers of Congress.
Please send a letter urging
your members of Congress
to support the Right to Re-
pair Act by visiting
www.righttorepair.org.

utive Committee meets the 1st Mon-
day night of each month at 7:00 pm

rently held by Democrat Congress-
man Allen Boyd. We appreciate
these gentlemen traveling to Dixie
County to visit with our voters and
answer questions about the current
issues and challenges that affect all
of us here in District 2. This month,


we will have the chance to hear from
one of the other Republican candi-
dates for this office, Mr. Steve
Southerland. Mr. Southerland was
unable to attend last month, but will

As always, any Republican candi-
dates for federal, state or local office

about our government,-it's time for
good people to get involved and
make a difference!

Outdoors & Law


Trn/ t Riers

by Bonnie Wilson

The hot summer sun contin-
ues to beat down upon us
and we scatter to our air
conditioned homes. It seems
to make me a bit on the lazy
side. I'd rather sit'in the
easy chair and read a
"thriller" book or catch up
on my Horse & Rider maga-
zines.
The heat has been a
.source of "unrest" for me.
Just doing simple barn
chores and horse mainte-
nance has been rough. Hors-
es are some what lucky as
they are.not used to air-con-
ditioning so they don't seem
to mind the heat as I do. At
least they have a fan to get
under in their stalls and
they do enjoy that.
As the dog days of
August are rapidly ap-
proaching I'm looking for
snakes at every turn. I real-
ly hate snakes just as much
as spiders. Look out! I know
they have a purpose in life
but I prefer to let sleeping
dogs lie and that goes dou-
ble for snakes and spiders.
However, during
this heat wave I've been
thinking from my easy
chair about a few things to
make myself a better eques-
trian. So here's a list of 10
easy exercises to becoming
a better equestrian.

10) Drop a heavy steel object
on your foot. Do not pick it
up right away, instead shout
"Get off Stupid! Get Off!"

9) Leap out of a moving ve-
hicle and practice "relaxing
into the fall" Roll lithely
into a ball and spring to
your feet.

8) Learn to grab your check-
book out of your purse and
write out a $500 check with-
out looking down.


7) Jog long distances carry-
ing a halter and a carrot.
Better tell your neighbor
what your doing they
might as well know now.

6) Affix a pair of reins to a
moving freight train and
practice pulling to halt.
Don't forget to smile as
though your having fun.

5) Hone your fibbing skills.
As your husband says "See
Hon, moving hay bales is
FUN" smile and say "Right
Hon!"

4) Practice dialing your chi-
ropractor's number with
both arms paralyzed to the
shoulder and one foot an-

Okay that's my insightful-
ness for this week, and I
hope you took this in the
spirithat it was given.
Just fun. It's sincerely a
great joy to owning horses.
One that I fully enjoy even
when I healed from a bro-
ken shoulder. But we have
all been there and done that.
I dearly love our horses and
I am so looking forward to
being back out on the trail
again. I am just waiting on
a cooler day Contact us at

next time..........Happy
Trails!

NOAA reopens fishing
grounds

NOAA will re-open 26,388
square miles of Gulf waters
to commercial and recre-
ational fishing on Thursday.
The reopening of a third of
the overall closed area was
announced after consulta-
tion with FDA and under a
re-opening protocol agreed
to by NOAA, the FDA, and
the Gulf states.

Since mid-June, NOAA data
have shown no oil in the
area, and United States
Coast Guard observers flying
over the area in last 30 days
have also not observed any
oil. Additionally, trajectory
models show the area is at a
low risk for future exposure
to oil, and fish caught in the
area and tested by NOAA ex-
perts have shown no signs of
contamination.

sist a licensed trapper in

tion on these exciting alliga-
tor hunts, visit
MyFWC.com/gators and
click "Statewide Hunts."


"Today's decision is good
news for Gulf fishermen and
American consumers," Com-
merce Secretary Gary Locke
said. "Following the best sci-
ence for this re-opening pro-
vides important assurance to
the American people that the
seafood they buy is safe and
protects the Gulf seafood
brand and the many people
who depend on it for their
livelihoods."

At its closest point, the area
to be reopened is about 190
miles, southeast of.the Deep-
water/BP wellhead, and the
area where the, majority of
fishing will occur is about
220 miles from the wellhead,
along the west Florida shelf.

Between June 23 and July 5,
NOAA collected samples of
fish, including grouper, snap-
per, tuna, and mahi mahi
from the area where the
heaviest fishing will take
place. Sensory and chemical
testing following the method-
ology and procedures in the
re-opening protocol showed
no detectable oil or disper-
sant odors or flavors, and the
results of chemical analysis
were well below the levels of
concern.

"We are pleased today to be
able to fully support the re-
opening of these waters,"
said Dr. Margaret A. Ham-
burg, Commissioner of Food
and Drugs. "We know it is
important to get people back
to fishing quickly -- this in-
dustry is the backbone of the
Gulf region economy .At the
same time, we need the
American public to be confi-
dent in the seafood coming
from the Gulf, and the test-
ing that has been done as
part of the agreed upon pro-
tocols has not indicated any
level of concern."

NOAA will continue to take
samples for testing from the
newly re-opened area, and
the agency has also imple-
mented dockside sampling to
test fish caught throughout
the Gulf by commercial fish-
ermen.

Additionally, the NOAA re-
search vessel Nancy Foster
took water samples in and
around the area proposed for
re-opening during early to
mid July No surface sheens
were observed and no unusu-
al readings potentially in-
dicative of oil were obtained
during these activities.

Fishery area closures re-
main the first line of defense
to prevent contaminated
seafood from entering the
marketplace.


Levy Fre Rescue wins blood drive challenge


In winning the annual Guns & Hoses Battle of the Badges blood
drive, Levy County Fire Rescue not only beat the competition, it
beat the odds.

Nationally only about 5 percent of Americans donate blood regu-
larly. Levy Fire Rescue had a 60 percent participation, to win the
award for highest percentage of participation, edging second
place Florida Highway Patrol, the 2009 winner that had 54 per-
cent participation.

Levy Fire Chief Rick Bloom said the volunteers got the word out
into the community and were surprised and happy to win the
award. "Our priority is lifesaving, saving lives, this goes right
along with that," Bloom said.

The Alachua County Sheriff's Office also earned an award, re-
peating as champs as the agency with the most donors with 53,
topping second place Gainesville Police Department that had 26
donations.

Every June in North Florida firefighters, emergency medical re-
sponders, deputies, police officers and troopers engage in the
fun lifesaving battle, and bragging rights are on the line.
"This year we had the participation of 15 different agencies, and
the competition helped bring in nearly 200 units of blood," said
LifeSouth Community Blood Centers' North Florida District Di-
rector J.D. Pettyjohn. "The people in these agencies knowfrom
first-hand experience just how important donating is, and they
came through at the beginning of summer when we face a chal-
lenge of keeping up with the demand."

Meeting that challenge is no easy task because it takes nearly
1,000 donors every week just to meet the needs of the hospitals
in North Florida. In the summer when the college student popu-
lation drops significantly, high schools are out and regular
donors are traveling, the challenge can easily turn into a short-
age without additional donors stepping up. "While the number
of donors typically drops, the demand for blood doesn't take a
vacation. We need all the help we can from our donors this sum-
mer," said Pettyjohn.

Back to school (already)


Supt. Rains observes as Maintenance Supervisor Dwayne Lev-
erette repairs the food service freezer at Dixie County High
School.


STRAIGHT TALK

By Dixie District School
Superintendent Mark Rains

Summer'projects are in
progress and will soon be
completed as we welcome
our students back to school
on August 23rd. The majori-
ty of our teachers have at-
tended training this summer
to expand our educational
curriculum. As students re-
turn, they will see improve-
ments to facilities at all
schools.

After an extra month of an-
ticipation, individual FCAT
results finally arrived in our
school district. By now, all
parents should have received
the individual scores for
their children through the
U.S. Postal Service. We were
faced with many successes,
along with a few disappoint-
ments. One of my five goals
as Superintendent of Schools
is to insure that all FCAT
scores are at or above the
state average. We will con-
tinue to work at achieving
this goal.

On July 1, our district wel-
comed three new principals
to begin our school year. Our
schools will experience slight
changes and a smooth transi-
tion will occur. Please visit
our website for Open House
dates and times at all
schools.

This year, Dixie County High
School will be expanding
dual enrollment to include
some on campus courses.
Standard Certifications for
vocational programs contin-
ue to expand to include addi-
tional certificates in a vari-
ety of areas.

Dixie District Schools has
been awarded a $750,000 En-
hancing Education Through
Technology Grant to pur-
chase approximately 300 lap-
top computers for students
and 14
smartboard/laptop/projec-
tors for teachers. These com-
puters and teaching stations
will be used in grades 6-12 to
help increase academic


achievement in the areas of
science, technology, engi-
neering, and math.

The State of Florida is in the
process of determining
which method of class-size
reduction will become law.
This finalvote will be on the
November ballot for the citi-
zens of Florida to deter-
mine. We ask students, par-
ents, and staff to be patient
with the school system as we
strive to adjust to this possi-
ble change in law.

At the July 12th School
Board Meeting, the School
Board approved the Charter
School application submit-.
ted by Mrs. Rita Harris from
the Kinder Cub School. The
school will open in August,
2011 with 40 kindergarten
students and increase to 60
students the following year.
We will work to insure a pos-
itive transition between the
Kinder Cub School and Dix-
ie District Schools, as our
priority is for all children of
Dixie County to receive the
best education possible.

Our Back To School Guides
will be available in your
community during the mid-
dle of August. These infor-
mative guides will contain
helpful information for the
entire school year. They will
be available, free of charge
throughout your community.

This summer, I have visited
the outlying areas and have
heard your input for our
schools. My goal is to visit
the outlying communities
for our residents in the
Suwannee, Jena, and Horse-
shoe Beach areas to commu-
nicate with the Superinten-
dent of Schools.

For current Dixie District
Schools information, visit
our website at
http://www.dixie.kl2.fl.us.
We welcome your sugges-
tions in making this a user
friendly website for students,
parents, and the community

COLLEGE'S NEW NAME ANNOUNCED | KEEP JUDGE KOBERLEIN I


Lake City Community College officially marked the chang-
ing of its name to Florida Gateway College on July 1, with a
ribbon cutting ceremony attended by many regional digni-
taries, board of trustee members, and college staff com-
memorating the occasion.
The school will continue to offer 2 year AS and AA degrees
and will pursue offering four year degrees in selected pro-
grams.
The college originally began as The Columbia Forest
Ranger School in 1947, became Lake City Junior College in
1962, and changed to Lake City Community College in 1970,
the name it held until recently, with the switch to Florida
Gateway College.

DON'T BE MISLED

Rumors are flying in Dixie County with insinuations that, "If you re-elect Judge Koberlein you will lose your ability
to determine who will be your County Judge."? Nothing could be further from the truth.

When you re-elect me, you will not lose your right to determine who your County Judge is.

HAVING THE GOVERNOR APPOINT A CONSTITUTIONAL OFFICER
IS NOT A NEW SITUATION FOR US HERE IN DIXIE COUNTY

1. In 2003, the governor appointed me; during the following election in 2004, you agreed with him
and you kept me.
2. In- 2005 the governor appointed a Clerk of Courts; during the following election in 2006,
we "vetoed" his appointment and elected Dana Johnson.
3. In 2007 the governor appointed our Supervisor of Elections, Starlet Cannon; during the following
election in 2008, we agreed with him and kept her.
In short, we have been here before; the system works. We, the citizens of Dixie
County, will decide who will be our County Judge, just as we decided who our
other constitutional officers are at the polls.

have started teaching several
people how to quilt and its
lots fun. We had a quilt

what a quilt. It is a Flower
Garden done in sections that
are then put together to
.make the reversible quilt.
Both side of each flower sec-

quilted before attaching the
section to the other sections.
This quilt was started many
years ago and I've never seen
a quilt like it. A lot of the
pieces are already finished
and they just have to be put
together.
We will be going to High

Citizens en"gage"d in
water data collection

Data collection specialists
with the Suwannee River
Water Management District
(District) spend long hours
installing, maintaining and
collecting data from gages
along our rivers, lakes, and
streams, but they can't do it
without the help of a few
volunteers that supplement
their efforts.

More than 30
volunteer ob-
servers help
collect rainfall
and water-level
data from man-
ual gages with-
in the District's
15-county re-.
gion. Ob-
servers take
readings at
least once a
week and Davi
record the data in
a log that is re-
turned to the District.
Volunteer observers typical-
ly live or own property near
the gage sites and have a
vested interest in the infor-
mation.

"They are folks who have an
interest in river and lake
levels for fishing purposes
or who like to know how the
levels affect their property,
such as during a flood or
drought event," said Donald
Monroe, District hydrologic
data collection specialist.
David Pharr, former owner
and operator of the Canoe
Outpost at the Spirit of the
Suwannee Music Park in
Live Oak, found that collect-
ing water-level data was
helpful to his customers.
"We would get frequent in-
quiries about flood levels,"
said Pharr, who is an ob-
server for the Suwannee
River. "It was nice for us to
provide our customers with,
information from the
horse's mouth."

Now, he and his wife, Deb-
bie, enjoy weekend trips
rafting along the river on
their floating platform
dubbed the "Clampett Mo-
bile." The platform which
carries a tent, chairs, cool-
ers, fishing poles, the family,
dogs and other items floats
down the river with the cur-
rent.

Knowledge of river levels
helps in planning weekend
trips.


FINANCING AVAILABLE


"If the levels are too high
we run into the branches; if
they are too low there's not
enough current to carry
us," Pharr said.

Kim Davis, who lives on the
Santa Fe River, has a staff
gage on her property She
reads the gage weekly while
out walking her dogs. How-
ever, when the river flooded
in 1998, she was collecting
levels for the District daily.
The water
had risen 5
feet under
her home,
which lucki-
ly, was built
on 10-foot
stilts in the
1970s.

"There was
no land in
sight for two
months at
my house,"
id Pharr Davis said,
noting she
had to use a
gheenoe boat to access her
property.
Davis was able to assist the
District in taking readings
during that flood until the
staff gage became sub-
merged.

Observers serve as a backup
for electronic gages, which
transmit data to a computer
via satellite or phone, lines.
"Having backup data is im-
portant in case of equip-
ment failure and it also pro-
vides a means to check data
against that which is pro-
duced'from automated
equipment," Monroe said.
"The most critical time for
this data is during a flood
event when the public relies
on this information."

The District provides wa-
ter-level and rainfall data to
the public through its web-
, site, www.mysuwanneeriv-
: er.com. Flood warnings are
.posted during aflooding
event. Such data is also used
to compile reports for pro-
jects and for decision-mak-
ing.

Obtaining reliable data for
these purposes could not be
possible without the Dis-
trict's volunteer observers.
"We have reliable data ob-
servers, whose service to
the District serves an im-
portant purpose," said Mon-
roe. "The District appreci-
ates all their efforts and
hard work.".


imlson completes basic
Navy Training

Navy Seaman Apprentice
Daniel C. Wilson, a 2009
graduate of Dixie High
School, Dixie County, Fla.,
recently completed U.S.
Navy basic training at Re-
cruit Training Command,
Great Lakes, .l.

During the eight-week pro-
gram, Wilson completed a
variety of training which in-
cluded classroom study and
practical instruction on
naval customs, first aid, fire-
fighting, water safety and
survival, and shipboard and
aircraft safety. An emphasis


was also placed on physical
fitness.

The capstone event of boot
camp is "Battle Stations".
This exercise gives recruits
the skills and confidence
they need to succeed in the
fleet. "Battle Stations" is de-
signed to galvanize the basic
warrior attributes of sacri-
fice, dedication, teamwork
and endurance in each re-
cruit through the practical
application of basic Navy
skills and the core values of
Honor, Courage and Com-
mitment. Its distinctly
"Navy" flavor was designed
to take into account what it
means to be a Sailor.


Local Book Club Hosts Area Author


The ladies of Fawn's Book Club of Cross City got a special
treat at their last meeting, Thursday July 15th; Gainesville
author Mary Anna Evans joined them for the evening.

Each month a different club member acts as hostess, choos-
ing the book that will be read and preparing the meal for the
group's get-together Cindy Chewning was hostess for the
July meeting. She chose Mary Anna Evans' novel Artifacts
as the book selection for the group to read. Noticing the au-
thor's website address on the book's cover, Cindy dashed off
an e-mail telling Mary Anna how much she had enjoyed the
book, and that she had chosen it for the book club to read that
month. Mary Anna sent back a charming reply and offered
to attend the club's get-together.

Gathering at the home of Ruth Ann Lovelace, club members
died on a delicious meal bf assorted pasta salads with
freshly baked chocolate brownie sundaes for dessert. Follow-
ing the meal, they listened to Mary Anna talk about her ca-
reer as a writer. They were surprised to learn her education-
al background was in engineering, not archeology, since the
main character in her novels (Faye Longchamp) is an arche-
ologist. They learned of hei struggles to find a publisher,
how she does research for her novels, where she actually does
her writing (in a comfortable recliner with her laptop), and
how she developed her characters. Club members were also
able to purchase personally autographed copies of Mary
Anna's books.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed Artifacts, and are looking for-
ward to reading the six other books in the series. If you enjoy
a good mystery with endearing characters and lots of plot
twists and turns, then the ladies of Fawn's Book Club highly
recommend Mary Anna Evan's Faye Longchamp series.
(Mary Anna Evan's books are available from all major online
books sellers and a number of bookstores in the Gainesville
area,

National FFA News Release $1,000 Built Ford Tough Trucks/ FFA


jip ack in the day,
when our home didn't have
a computer or the internet
(gasp, it's true) I read cook-
books like most people read
best-sellers. I flipped
through, looked at the pic-
tures and read the recipes.
Now, I usually go online to
some of my favorite sites
and do a search. I mix and
match ingredients according
to my family's tastes and vi-
ola a recipe. While trying to
find a recipe to share this
week I went old school and
cracked open an actual cook-
book with real paper pages.
I came across a pancake
recipe I used to make all the
time when the kids were
small. If you have a relaxed
morning take some time to
make these.or make them
ahead of time and refriger-
ste. Just heat for a few sec-
onds in the microwave and
you have a quick breakfast.
Don't overheat or you will
have hockey pucks instead
of pancakes.

some reason I decided to
read the back of my laundry
detergent bottle. If said for
large loads fill up the cup to
the second line. When I
looked at the cup I realized I
had been filling it to the top
line which was the sixth
line! That is three times the
amount of detergent. I kept
doing the math in my head.
For every one load of laun-
dry I could have done three
loads. For every three loads
I could have done nine loads.
For every nine loads I could
have done twenty-seven! See
how it adds up? I would nev-
er just pour soap down the
drain but this is what I was
basically doing. Also, if you
overdo the soap your washer
can't rinse it all out and it
builds up on your clothes. So
take a minute and read the
back of your laundry deter-
gent. Mark the line with a
,permanent marker so you
will be able to see it better.

Thanks for the recipes and
e-niails! I love hearing from
you. Send me any tips that
have made your life easier
or recipes that have made
your taste buds sing! We are
all in the same boat. There
will always be empty bellies
and dirty dishes. There will
always be dust on the table
Sand dirt on the floor. A little
bit of humor and advice can
make the trip so much easi-
.er.

Sea turtle nests
continue to be moved

The.Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commissionh
(FWC) advises that authorized
biologists and sea turtle permit
holders will be relocating sea .
turtle nests, onFranklin, Gulf,,
Bay, Okalfsa, Walton, Santa i,,
Rosa and Escambia county
beaches Monday July 26
through Friday July 30. The
nests are being relocated to the
east coast to ensure the sea tur-
tle hatchlings do not encounter
oil from the Deepwater Horizon
oil spill. Nest excavations have
been occurring on Northwest
Florida and Alabama Gulf
coasts this past month and will
continue throughout the sum-
mer.
This unprecedented action is
being undertaken because it is
far riskier to allow the nests to
remain in place and face the
possibility that an entire group
- or cohort of sea turtles could
perish..
Sea turtle hatchlings face great
challenges when they crawl to
the water, swim offshore and be-
gin their lives in the ocean.
They face many dangerous ob-
stacles, both on the beach and
in the water some natural,
some because of man that
make survival difficult.
This summer, the hatchlings of.
these threatened and endan-
gered species emerging from
nests on Northwest Florida
beaches face an additional,
likely insurmountable obstacle
in the form of large amounts of
oil from the long-running
Deepwater Horizon oil spill in
the Gulf of Mexico. The oil
products could cause problems
for hatchlings on the beach, but
the highest degree of danger
lies in the ocean currents that
determine where these young
sea turtles go. They are the
same currents that determine
where the floating oil goes,

which would con-

That's why a group of
sea turtle experts
from the FWC, the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service (USFWS), and
NOAA's Nationfl Ma-
rine Fisheries Seriei '
began planning a way
to prevent this im-
pending loss of newly
hatched sea turtles
when it was clear that
oil would continue to
pour into the Gulf and linger
throughout the sea turtle nest-
ing season.
"We had to determine the best
course of action, given the ex-
traordinary circumstances of
this oil spill," said Dr. Robbin
The plan involves moving.sea
turtle eggs that are within a
week of hatching from the
beaches in Northwest Florida to
a facility on the central-east
coast of Florida. Once the eggs
are removed from the nest, they
are placed carefully in coolers
with dampened sand from the
nest, transported in a specially
designed, temperature-con-
trolled and air-cushioned truck
to the east coast, somewhere
near the Cape Canaveral area,
and held under carefully moni-
tored conditions until the
hatchlings emerge from the
eggs.

S Facebook Question of the Week:
What are you doing to save money during the
recession? What have you cut back on? Got any tips?


Carrie Hill Cobb: Coupons, coupons for EVERYTHING
that I can use them for,....I'm a coupon clippin' mama! LOL


Donna Cravey: Oh boy, my favorite topic! We quit eating
out. We have meatless days and found that if a recipe calls
for a pound of ground meat, we can use 1/3 pound and it is
just as good. We make a lot of one-pot meals: Chicken and
rice, chicken and dum...plings. We've been making our own
bread/rolls (which are actually way better than from the
store). We only go grocery shopping once a month. We only
go out for entertainment once every few months. Since rm
a big reader, I discovered tons of free reading material
which I downloaded to computer and/or Kindle from Pro-
ject Gutenberg, Feedbooks, Manybooks,.etc. Even Amazon
and BN have free downloadable books.

Rob Jones: I have called all our utilities -- cable, cellphone,
etc -- and threatened to reduce my services or quit. These
companies are so desperate to keep customers that they can
often offer "temporary" discounts to keep you around I got
20 bucks shaved off my cable service, and 10 off my cell,
just by negotiating. We're also in the habit of buying the
cheap, ready to eat rotisserie chickens offered by our gro-
cery store they make a great dinner, we strip excess meat
for sandwiches and chicken salad, then boil down the car-
cass for broth, which then makes a nice soup with very lit-
tle additional ingredients. We get 3-4 meals for 2 out of a 6
Dollar chicken, all of which are pretty healthy.

Heather Dixon: I clip alot of coupons and have started to
do more internet shopping,(thus saving on gas). I try to find
online coupon codes at sites such as retailmenot.com. I also
use sites such as piratesofthesupermarket.com and swag-
grabber.com to find the best deals on products and services
and to print weekly coupons.

Liz Vaughan: Coupons!!! Lol. Plus, should we go out to eat,
we usually go to that restaurant's website and join their E-
mailing list. I join companies' Facebook pages in hopes of.
coupons or free samples. =)). Some clothing brands send
you coupons if you join their E-clubs.I got a free Ziploc vac-
uum thing just by inquiring about it. Pantene Pro-V sent
me a travel size sample of their new shampoo b/c I'm a fan
on FB =)).

-L
First Baptist Church of
Steinhatchee

This past Sunday we enjoyed
the talents of Brother Harry
Gatlin with a song called
"Where no one stands along and
Sister Sarah Holden and two of
her children Christopher and
Leon with the song "God's been
good" what a statement!!! The
goodness of God knows no
boundary, the scriptures tell us
that in all things give thanks.
How often we take for granted
the goodness of God and the
fact that with Him we are never
alone. Praise the Lord for His
goodness and the fact that He is
a friend that sticks closer to us
than a brother.
Next Sunday (Aug. 1, 2010) we
will be giving Brother Roger
and Sister Jodie Shipman and
Sister Dana a pounding. They
have each moved into new
homes so we are going to pound
them good. For those that do
not know what a pounding is, it
is where we as a church bring a
pound of anything that they
may need and put it in a box for
them (it's kinda like a house
warming). A box will be placed
in the church with the names of
the family on it so that anyone
that wants to can drop off a
pound of needed items in the
box. For Sister Dana, we're ask-
ing that baby items be brought
as well as the other things. Let's
POUND them really good!!!!!!
Monday begins VBS (July 26th
through July 30th) at our
church and will run through
Friday. Those wishing to attend
just call our church at 498-2108
with directions to where you


live or just come on by our
church.-VBS will start at 6:00
pm to 8:00 pm. Ages will be
Kinder'garden thru sixth grades.
Meals will be provided for VBS
kids and staff.
WOW!!! what a great day'of cele-
bration. This coming Sunday
Sister Hires has invited every-
one over to the fellowship hall
to help Brother Grady Hires cel-
ebrate his 90th Birthday!!!!
Praise the Lord. It will begin at
3 pm and last until 5 pm. Come

Approval of Change Order #2 for the Anderson
Elementary School Reroofing project. Pur-
chase Order #9011000046 was to direct order
materials for $6508.40 from Bradco. At the
time we needed the materials, Bradco did not
have all the items needed in stock so Mr. Jud-
son Bennett from BGG Contracting Group, Inc.
ordered the materials from Phoenix Metals for
$5636.20 and what he pould get from Bradco
for $799.00. So, we need to cancel Purchase
Order #9011000046 for $6508.40 and reim-
burse BGG Contracting Group, Inc. for
$6435.20. The total amount ended up being
less but there is a change in the paperwork.

Approval of Change Order #3 for the Anderson
Elementary School Reroofing project. BBG
Contracting Group Inc. subcontracted with
Jenkins Food Service to install the new kitchen
hood at Anderson Elementary School. They
found the shunt trip was not properly installed
and the fire alarm was not tied to the old hood,
and requested a quote from electrical contrac-
tor, Rivercity Electric, Inc. of Orange Park to
correct the deficiency. Both problems were.re-
viewed by Shawn M. Jeffrey, Sr. with Paul
Stresing's office and they concurred there was
no way of knowing about this deficiency until
the original hood was removed and a new unit
installed. They also both agreed that $1800 is
a reasonable price to correct the problem that
must be fixed to comply with Code.

mitted by Charlotte C. Lord, Director of Safety,

At BP, We have taken full responsibility for the cleainup 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 Shdre Cleanup Assessment Team (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
